The project team is currently in the final stages of negotiations with the contractor and the revised start date will be communicated in February 2014.


 

Local Parks Services

There are approximately 119 local parks covering 227 hectares in the Local Board area, including Pt England Reserve, Panmure Basin, Waikaraka Park and Onehunga Bay Reserve.

Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board

Community Development, Arts and Culture (CDAC)

Highlights and Achievements

2photo

The Maungakiekie Tamaki Local Board is committed to improving the quality of rental housing and improving quality of life for local renters. In 2013, Community Development and Safety (CDS) and the Environmental Services Unit (ESU) led a pilot project to explore methods to address housing quality issues for renters, with great success. This project recruited 13 landlords and a total of 20 households. All property assessments and tenant education sessions have been completed. A symposium to share the findings of the pilot and the role local boards have in this area was held in December 2013.

On December 9th 2013, the Local Board and council staff hosted a symposium to share their experiences with other Local Boards and Council staff who might consider implementing similar projects across the Auckland region. The symposium celebrated the project’s successes, shared lessons and outlined the next steps for housing quality initiatives in Maungakiekie-Tamaki. A number of stakeholders who had been involved in the project presented at the symposium. Landlords who participated in the project, spoke of the impact it has had on them and the changes they now intend to make. The Auckland Property Investors Association (APIA) spoke of the improving relationships between landlords and tenants, and of the organisation’s wish to continue being involved in this project.

In May 2013 the Local Board resolved to endorse the development of a Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board Youth Panel (MTLBYP).  A public event was held in June 2013 in Panmure to promote the purpose of the youth panel and to encourage youth aged between 14 – 24 years to apply to join the panel. An application and interview process was held in July and on the 4th September 2013, the youth panel held its inaugural meeting. 

The above photo and story was published in Our Auckland in October 2013.

A number of community organisations, such as Ruapotaka Marae in Glen Innes and New Zealand Somali Women in Onehunga have had an organisational “health check” in the first stage of the local board’s capacity building project.  “The organisations have been very positive about the health checks,” said a spokesperson from Accounting for Charities, the organisation contracted to do the initial checks. “The groups have a very positive attitude as to how they can implement change for the better”. 

The next step of the project will be to work intensively with a small group of targeted organisations to build their capacity and capability.

Marist Softball Club has been active over the winter months providing a Winter Academy Programme, up skilling 6 to 10 year olds and their under 17 teams. The club was very excited to be starting the season with three new girls teams - under 17, under 15 and under 13 years. The club's home, Simson Park, is situated in the middle of a large industrial area. Seeing the potential of getting to know their neighbours better the club have promoted a "meet the neighbours" function. Invitations have gone out to the neighbouring businesses to come and see the facilities and find out more about the club and its activities.

 

 

 

The ‘Arts4Us’ sessions at Oranga Community Centre have a regular attendance of between 16-18 local children each week, aged between 6-13 years. The Community Centre-led programme was developed in response to children and young people ‘hanging out’ at the centre and Fergusson Domain after school. This group expressed an interest in engaging with art-related activity, resulting in ‘Arts4Us’ starting at the end of October 2013. The programme is facilitated by an experienced art therapist, with the assistance of two art therapy students who volunteer their time.

 

Over 350 people attended the Evergreen art exhibition that ran from November 29 until   December 3 2013, celebrating International Day of the Older Person. The exhibition showcased the work of thirteen local artists from the Onehunga & Oranga Art groups, both of whom are regular users of the community centre.

 

Entry to the exhibition was through the beautiful carved waharoa (gateway), which had been gifted to the centre by Te Wānanga o Aotearoa.

 

New funding agreements were developed, negotiated and signed off for Dunkirk Road Activity Centre and the Riverside Community Centre for the 2013/2014 year to reflect the Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board priorities. This covers the operation and management of those centres. The value for each centre funding agreement is:

Dunkirk Road Activity Centre                          $46,588

Riverside Community Centre                          $52,941

Watching Brief

The construction phase of the Glen Innes Music and Arts Centre was delayed due to issues surrounding the results of the tendering process.  Officers have resolved this, and can advise that construction on the centre is due to begin around April 2014. At this stage the centre is still expected to be completed according to original timeframes.

Other key activities completed to date are:

·    Detailed design for the project was approved by the local board on the 30th of July 2013.

·    The Charter and the subcommittee implementation plans had been approved by the local board.

·    The process to name the facility is underway: following local community consultation, a report will be provided to the local board in March/April 2014 for a final decision.

A major piece of work has been undertaken by Council staff on fees and charges to increase alignment of venue hire use with local board priorities by reviewing the setting of fees and charges for bookable spaces across the Auckland region.  In December a series of workshops were held for local board portfolio holders and other interested members to discuss the rationale of facilities for hire, the principles for use and the principles for fee subsidies. Further workshops will be conducted in February and reports are scheduled for each Local Board in quarter four.

Performance

The number of graffiti incidents in Maungakiekie-Tamaki from July – December 2013 increased by 26% compared to the same period last year.  The number of RFS (Requests for Service) graffiti removals has risen. The increase in incidents may be a result of contractors proactively removing graffiti from across the local board area.

 

 

 

 

Maungakiekie-Tamaki achieved continued improvement in the graffiti survey results, which measures how much of the city is graffiti free. The local board area scored 97 out of 100 in the 2013 survey – a 3 point increase since 2011, which now places the local board well above the council average and places it 3rd in the city rankings.

 

The event survey for Onehunga Christmas Lights has been completed. Headline results are detailed below showing high levels of satisfaction at 88% exceeding the target of 85%.

Community facility utilisation

Improved business practices including the implementation of an effective cancellation process and management of internal bookings has resulted in lower but accurate utilisation being recorded for our venues for hire.

 

Q1 & Q2 utilisation rates for Maungakiekie-Tamaki are 0.4% higher compared to the same period the previous year. They are less than 1.6 percent below the council average and less than 8.7 percent below the 2013/14 target.

Visitors to community facility

 

Visitor numbers for July to December 2013 were 161,604, this is a 22 per cent decrease compared to the same period last year which was 206,085 visits.  The decrease is due to the number of casual visitors at some community centres being included in 2012/13 but excluded from the statistics for 2013/14.

Regional

The Matariki Festival is a regional cultural festival that can be tailored locally.  The Festival connects Māori culture with diverse communities and generations locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. The festival is multi-disciplinary and encompasses Matauranga (education) Taiao (Environmental) Whakangahau (Social) and Nga Toi (Artistic) expressions. There is an opportunity for the local board to allocate unspent 2013/14 budget and expand Matariki offerings for the 2014 festival.

The Creative Communities Scheme (CCS) is a contestable funding scheme administered by Auckland Council on behalf of Creative New Zealand. The scheme provides funding to local communities to assist them to create and present arts activities. In Q1, 50 applications were received for the southern area requesting a total of $794,855 from an available pool of $132,159. Forty-one applications were successful, of which 8 (totaling $9,250) related to activities in the Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board area.

In a national first, Injury Prevention staff have been working with local boards to develop responses to Auckland Injury Profiles. These profiles (Infographs) collate and break down injury data from national health statistics and local sources to local board areas. Each local board has an Infograph for fatalities and for injuries and the data will be updated three yearly. In this reporting period, Infographs were forwarded to all local boards. It is hoped that local boards will link with the Injury Prevention team so that local Injury Prevention plans can be developed to reduce the incidence of fatalities and injuries in local board areas. Two local boards have taken up this offer and plans are currently under development.

Appendix A: Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board Quarterly Financial Performance Report to December 2013

 

3.         Financial Overview and Top Projects Summary

 

Net Cost of Service and Capital Expenditure relating to the local board is summarised below discussed in respect of each Group of Activity.

 

·                     Table 1: Financial Overview

     

 

Net Cost of Services is $9,043k and tracking $1,116k or 12% below budget.

 

Operating Expenditure is $9,286k which is $1,096k or 12% below budget. The major under spends were in the following areas:

·      Economic Development by $373k mainly due to street amenities maintenance and arboriculture expenditure are now managed by Local Parks Services under Full Facilities Contract;

·      Local Community Services by $312k mainly due to Property costs for December was coded to regional cost codes and the budget allocations do not aligned to actual expenditure; and

·      Local Art, Culture and Event Services by $110k mainly due to delays in construction of Glen Innes Music and Art to February 2014.

 

Revenue is $20k below budget mainly due to budget allocations for Onehunga Community Centre and Oranga Community Centre varied significantly from actual revenues.

 

Capital expenditure is $6,815k and tracking $653 or 10% below budget due to delays in per paragraph below.

The top project(based on amount) are tracking as follows

·      Onehunga Bay Foreshore Upgrade is tracking well and expected to complete by April 2014;

·      Glen Innes Music and Arts Centre for Youth has been delayed due to budget shortfall of $900k which has now been  fixed approved allocated from Local Community Services activity.

·      Sports Field Capacity – Local Park Services is identifying projects that can be deferred to future year(s);

·      Upgrade (Upper Onehunga Mall) has been delayed to FY15 start.

4.         Local libraries

 

·                     Table 1: Financial Overview: Local library facilities and services

Net Cost of Services was $1,172k which is tracking $55k or 4% below budget. $70k was due to a combination of property related costs for December coded to regional cost codes; and budget allocations for properties are generally not accurate, which stems from the time of amalgamation of council. The Property Department is addressing this issue by reviewing the current cost allocation and correcting the budgets for the 2014/15 Budget Refresh.

 

Capital expenditure was $63k and is tracking above budget. This is mainly for the repair work of Panmure Library Roof, whereby the budget allocation was phased for later part of the year.

 

5.         Local community services

 

·                     Table 3: Financial Overview: Local community services

Net Cost of Services was $556k which is $359k or 39% below budget mainly related to property costs. The reason for the favourable variance of $229k in property costs are two folds – i.e. due to December costs coded to regional cost codes and budget allocations for properties are generally not accurate, which stems from the time of amalgamation. The Property Department is addressing this issue by reviewing the current cost allocation and correcting the budgets for the 2014/15 Budget Refresh.

 

To date, there are minimal expenditure in the Youth Connection (favourable by $38k) and Local Community Initiatives (favourable by $19k).

 

Total revenue is down by $39k due to current revenue budgets do not reflect prior year trends especially for Onehunga Community Centre and Oranga Community Centre. The department is reviewing their current cost allocations and correcting the budgets for the 2014/15 Budget Refresh.

 

Capital expenditure was -$34k which is an over accrual for Panmure Hall Roof Renewals from prior year. Also, $900k of the capital budget will be moved from Community Facilities Cluster  to Local Arts, Culture and Event Services for the construction of Glen Innes Music and Arts for Youth centre. Please refer to the next section.

 

6.         Local arts, culture and events services

 

·                     Table 4: Financial Overview: Local arts, culture and events services

SVBIPLUS13915577343

Net Cost of Services was $561k and tracking $104k or 16% below budget and the main areas of cause are:

·      Glen Innes Music and Art (by $82k) delayed from November 2013 to February 2014 start; and

·      Minimal expenditure to date in Local Events Discretionary Fund (by $47k).

 

Capital expenditure was $101k which is 78% or $362k below budget due to delays in the construction of Glen Innes Music and Art Centre for Youth. The quotes received for the tender process are significantly over budget and the shortfall of $900k has been approved to be allocated from Local Community Services activity to Local Arts, Culture and Event Services activity. This change will be reflected in the Budget Refresh.

 

7.         Local parks services

 

·                     Table 5: Financial Overview: Local parks

SVBIPLUS13915577544

Net Cost of Services was $4,222k which is tracking $143k or 3% below budget and the main contributors are:

·      General Capital Fund by $137k – the depreciation for actual consequential opex are recorded against actual assets, therefore actual depreciations are not aligned to budget;

·      Onehunga Foreshore (Green Assets) by $80k whereby the value of writing Green Assets from Capex to Opex is expected to be reduced from previous years as a result of refinement of the green asset policy;

·      Storm Damage – Local parks by $48k as it is seasonal and therefore only minimal expense to date; and

·      Property related costs are down by $51k due to budgets not currently aligned to actual costs.

 

The expenditure above was offset by overspends in:

·      Local Parks – General by $159k ; and

·      Full facility contract by $40k – where by some parks are not in the Asset Maintenance and Property Management system (AMPM) and therefore budget allocations for spend were not planned.

 

Capital expenditure was $6,269k which is tracking $511k or 8% below budget despite substantial progress on Sir Woolf Fisher Park by $68k. There are significant under spend in the following areas of renewal projects (by $509k), they are:

·      Local park furniture and fixture renewals by $226k,

·      Local park public convenience renewals by $112k

·      Sports park furniture and fixture renewals by $88k; and

·      Local park walkway and cycleway renewals by $49k.

 

The Parks, Sports and Recreation department is currently reviewing all their capital projects and identifying projects that can be completed this year and projects that can be phased to future years. The changes will be reflected in the 2014/15 Budget Refresh.

8.         Local recreation services

 

·                     Table 6: Financial Overview: Local recreational initiatives and facilities

Net Cost of Services was $710k which is tracking $11k or 2% above budget, which is on track.

 

Capital expenditure was $372k which is $247k or 197% above budget in the following areas:

·      Onehunga Pool separations work performed in November but budget allocations phased later in the year (by $169k);

·      Onehunga and Panmure Pools had their burners replaced (by $40k) but budget allocation phased later in the year; and

·      $27k was error in coding which will be corrected before next quarter.

 

9.         Local economic development

 

·                     Table 7: Financial Overview: Local economic development

Net Cost of Services was $1,135k and tracking $373k or 25% below budget due to low street amenities maintenance and arboriculture expenditure. This service was previously managed by Auckland Transport. It is now serviced by the Parks department who are managing this as part of their Full Facility contract (under the local park services’ activity). The budget in this activity will continue to show a favourable variance for the rest of the year.

 

The capital expenditure i.e. Upper Onehunga Mall Upgrade has been delayed to FY15.

 

10.       Local built and natural environment

·                     Table 8: Financial Overview: Local environment and heritage protection

Net Cost of Services was $28k which is $70k or 71% below budget as there is minimal spend in the following projects but expect to be completed by June 2014:

·      Manukau Harbour water quality improvement by $26k;

·      Tamaki Estuary/Panmure Basin water quality improvement by $23k; and

·      Ongoing ecological restoration by $21k.

 

11.       Local governance

·                     Table 9: Financial Overview: Local planning, policy and governance

Net Cost of Services was $658k, which is $23k or 3% below budget and on track.

Capital expenditure is $42k and tracking $13k or 43% above budget. This was due stage two upgrade of Fergusson Domain (Discretionary Fund budget) and the budget was phased for later in the year. Offset by $29k under spend in IT hardware expenditure.
