Good afternoon Tim,

 

My name is Nicole and I’m a LGOIMA Business Partner at Auckland Transport.

On 26 June we received your request for information about all documents,
communication and meeting notes/minutes relating to changes made to the
Glen Eden Town Centre upgrade project since public consultation closed in
2018.

We have now completed a search of our emails. The search has resulted
in 830,000 emails which we will need to review to complete your request.
We estimate that it will take us between 6 - 10 minutes per email to go
through these emails and work out what is related to your request.

Your request as it is currently framed, will be very difficult to meet
without substantial collation. Unless your request is amended, we may have
to refuse it under section 17(f) of the LGOIMA, which applies where the
information cannot be made available without substantial collation or
research.
 

Were there perhaps specific documents you were after, for example Meeting
minutes (if so, what type of minutes ie design, construction, weekly
updates etc), information related to the design or construction, road
safety audits, Local Board presentations etc. There are many documents for
one minor project so it might be helpful to know what it is that we can
provide you with.

Please let us know before 23 July 2021 whether you are prepared to amend
your request and, if so, how.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Kind regards

Nicole 

LGOIMA Business Partner

Thank-you for your notification. Please provide the following information for changes made since the consultation:

1.2 The decision to exclude any cycling facilities from the project scope in response to public submissions.
1.3 The decision to omit the proposed creation of a 30km/h speed zone.

Good morning Tim,

 

Thank you for your email below.

With regards to "2. All communications, assessments and recommendations
associated with provision of kerbside parking between 166 and 184 West
Coast Road" unfortunately this will still result in a substantial amount
of information as communication is a broad term. Perhaps we could refine
this to documents, such as Local Board presentations/updates, Minutes etc?
If you don't want to refine your request, AT provides five hours of work
for free after which we charge $47.50 per half hour.

The Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA)
requires that we let you know our decision on your request no later than
20 working days after the day we received your request. Unfortunately, it
won’t be possible to meet that time limit and we are therefore letting you
know of an extension of the time to make our decision, to 13 August 2021.
This extension is necessary because your request is for a large quantity
of information and consultations necessary to make a decision on your
request are such that a proper response cannot reasonably be made within
the original time limit.

 

Perhaps it might be helpful to discuss the above. If so, feel free to
either email [1][email address] (AT’s Official
Information request email address) with your contact number and I could
call you, or you could call our contact centre and ask to be put through
to me.

 

You are able to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of this
extension. Information about how to make a complaint is available
at [2]www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or freephone 0800 802 602.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Kind regards

Dear AT Official Information (AT),

The request relates to information which AT posted on your public website within the last 3 months (I note this has now been removed from your website, along with recent drawings of the project area), which suggested that AT was "being forced" to re-provide parking in front of 170/178 WCR (from memory, as the website has been changed), and that this would result in a footpath which was undersized - as part of an upgrade project whose main purpose is to improve pedestrian safety.

To limit your time investigating / compiling - it is any emails or letters relating to this suggested re-provision of parking and creation of a sub-standard footpath which this particular aspect of my Information Request relates to.

Yours sincerely,

tim robinson
