District Plan criteria for Good Public Transport Accessibility

Tony Randle made this Official Information request to Wellington City Council

Currently waiting for a response from Wellington City Council, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Tony Randle

Dear Wellington City Council,

The proposed District Plan 2021 includes the following Statement about Medium Density Residential Zone (MDRZ):

“The Medium Density Residential Zone encompasses areas of the city located near commercial centres and with good public transport accessibility. These are areas used predominantly for residential activities with moderate concentration and bulk of buildings, such as detached, semi-detached and terraced housing, low-rise apartments and other compatible activities”
WCC District Plan Introduction to MDRZ

I am interested in the WCC understanding an assessment criteria it uses to determine if an area has “good public transport accessibility” and so could be considered to being a MDRZ.

1) Can the WCC please provide copies of the reports, presentations and/or working papers where the definition of "good public transport accessibility" was discussed and/or analysed for use in the proposed District Plan?

2) Can the WCC please provide copies of the correspondence with Auckland Transport and/or Auckland Council or any other local government councils or agencies where there was discussion on the definition of “good public transport accessibility”?

3) Can the WCC please provide copies of the correspondence with the Ministry for the Environment, Waka Kotahi or any other government ministries, departments or agencies where there was discussion on the definition of “good public transport accessibility”?

4) Can the WCC please provide copies of the correspondence with the Greater Wellington Regional Council or any other local government councils or agencies where there was discussion on whether the Johnsonville Line would or would not meet the definition of “good public transport accessibility”?

5) Can the WCC please provide copies of the correspondence with the Ministry for the Environment, Waka Kotahi or any other government ministries, departments or agencies where there was discussion on whether the Johnsonville Line would or would not meet the definition of “good public transport accessibility”?

6) Can the WCC please provide copies of the correspondence with the Ministry for the Environment, Waka Kotahi, or any other government ministries, departments or agencies where there was discussion on the One Network Framework and its alignment with the definition of “good public transport accessibility” in the proposed District Plan?

I am also interested in the WCC engagement with The Road Efficiency Group that developed the One Network Framework for Waka Kotahi and was used by the WCC Spatial Plan to decide that medium density housing should be built close to railway stations (which is reflected in the proposed District Plan). I understand that the WCC is a member of the The Road Efficiency Group. The One Network Framework Mode Classification for public transport is listed: https://nzta.govt.nz/roads-and-rail/road...

7) Can the WCC please provide copies of any reports, presentations and/or working papers from The Road Efficiency Group that provided supporting analysis and/or the criteria used in the One Network Framework Mode Classification PT1:"All metro rail corridors and dedicated corridors for non-rail public transport: all services.”?

8) Can the WCC please provide copies of the correspondence with The Road Efficiency Group where there was discussion on the One Network Framework and its alignment with the definition of “good public transport accessibility” in the proposed District Plan?

9) Can the WCC please provide copies of the correspondence with the The Road Efficiency Group where there was discussion on whether the Johnsonville Line would or would not meet the definition of “good public transport accessibility”?

If the requested information is held in electronic form, it is preferred that it is provided in its complete and original electronic format.

Yours faithfully,

Tony Randle
