Financial Policies Issues for Long-term Plan 2015-2025

 

Resolution number DT/2014/270

MOVED by Chairperson MA Cohen, seconded by Deputy Chairperson JM Bergin:  

That the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board:

a)         support an investigation into increasing the UAGC (Uniform Annual General Charge) and look forward to receiving a detailed analysis that the board can then make recommendations on.

b)        support the business differential being frozen.

e)         request that the board and the relevant BID (Business Improvement District) should, where necessary, recommend the level of fees and charges relating to street trading within an area in order to take advantage of, or improve, the chances of vibrancy and economic growth. In particular, the board does not support any additional option for fees and charges which dis-incentivises street trading in town centres.

LTP 2015-2025 Feedback on mayoral proposal

 

Resolution number DT/2014/271

MOVED by Chairperson MA Cohen, seconded by Deputy Chairperson JM Bergin:  

That the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board:

a)         provide the following feedback on the mayoral proposal and the implications of this proposal, noting that this feedback is provided in the context of limited information at this point, and request that opportunity for further feedback is provided once the implications are more clearly understood:

Rates

              i.        acknowledges the attractiveness for the Governing Body in restricting the average rate increase to 2.5%.

            ii.        expresses concern at the adverse impacts on Local Boards’ services and possible future capital projects given that Auckland Council‘s rate income has not been reduced. The board, therefore, requests that the shared governance model be respected and that the local boards and the Governing Body work together on options to rebalance between regional and local and to find further efficiencies (especially procurements and processes).

Budget allocation

           iii.        does not support the proposed budget envelope for the parks, community and lifestyle theme, as these activities are the most significant for local boards and are the most valued by our communities as indicated by feedback received as part of the local board planning process.

Renewals

           iv.        support an adequately funded and timely renewals programme for all of our assets (including assets on parks and reserves, community facilities, pools and leisure centres, libraries and all other local assets), noting that the renewals programme should be funded from depreciation. The selection criteria to determine assets requiring renewal funding should be based on robust asset management plans and timely condition assessments.

New capital programme

            v.        support a slowing down of Auckland Council’s entire new capital works programme (including CCOs and regional budgets), if this is required to ensure that important local services to Aucklanders can continue and our communities do not experience significant rates rises.

           vi.        note that the implications of the mayoral proposal in the parks, community and lifestyle theme are that no new capital development is likely to take place during the lifetime of the local board plans (unless it is funded through the board’s locally driven initiatives budget which will effectively become a sinking fund due to the associated consequential opex charged).

          vii.        believe this loss of new capital projects is unacceptable, and that small local projects should not be unilaterally de-prioritised in favour of regional projects, as the board believes that small investment in local projects which involve the community has a major impact on our neighbourhoods.

Regional capital programme

        viii.        request further information and modelling around the funding allocated to regional projects, as well as what impact the slowing down of some of these projects may have on the overall budget.

           ix.        support investment in regional projects where they provide benefits to all Aucklanders, but query the speed of their delivery where this has a material impact on the ability to deliver local projects.

Parks

            x.        do not support any proposed adjustments to levels of service in our parks and reserves and beaches where there is a material impact on our ratepayers’ experience of these assets, noting that during consultation for our recent local board plan, our communities selected public ‘open space that allows us to live’ as a high priority.

           xi.        do not support in particular the introduction of chemical spraying and agrichemical use in reserves as the primary basis of controlling weeds and pests.

          xii.        support investment in capacity building and support to community and volunteer groups.

        xiii.        in principle do not support divestment of any parks or reserves.

Community development, arts and culture

        xiv.        support the proposed mayoral direction for community development and support an extension of this approach to all services currently managed by the Community Development, Arts and Culture department.

          xv.        support in particular the aim of a more empowered community approach and the move away from direct delivery of community development services and programmes by council.

        xvi.        note that for the model to be successful there must first of all be sufficient capability within each community.

       xvii.        support investment in capacity building and support to community groups as a priority.

      xviii.        suggest that the work to develop this new model region-wide involves local boards from the outset and utilises services that already work within a partnership framework as best practice examples.

        xix.        request that the work to re-model community development, arts and culture services includes a thorough analysis of current spend across the region (including both direct service delivery and business unit overhead costs), and that equity in expenditure is addressed as the model is developed and implemented.

          xx.        in principle do not support divestment of any necessary community assets, including community halls and buildings.

Service Levels

        xxi.        support greater flexibility in the Board’s discretion to make adjustments (up or down) to service levels within the board’s total financial envelope.

       xxii.        do not support the proposed standardisation of library opening hours where it leads to a reduction in service levels in our local libraries.

Transformation projects

      xxiii.        note Takapuna’s status as a strategic priority area and ask that the LTP 2015-2025 ensures there is sufficient capital available for its redevelopment as a metropolitan centre.

General

      xxiv.        authorise Chair Mike Cohen and Deputy Chair Joseph Bergin to add further feedback, after circulation to all local board members, if additional information becomes known at attendance at further meetings or workshops, and that any additions or amendments are reported back to the board.

Draft Community Grants Policy

 

Resolution number DT/2014/276

MOVED by Member JRK O'Connor, seconded by Member AP Roe:  

That the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board:

Local Grants Programme

a)         supports the provisions of the local grants programme, as it provides local boards with the flexibility to establish a range of funding schemes which reflect the priorities identified in the Auckland Plan and aligned local board plans.

b)        supports the provisions for local boards to approve their local grants programme for each financial year, in accordance with the draft Community grants policy. This includes:

              i.        drawing upon local board plans to determine priority areas for community grants

            ii.        the total budget available for community grants for the financial year

           iii.        the ability to ring-fence a portion of their budget for specific purposes or recurring, multi-year grants

           iv.        any additional accountability and performance measures relating to recurring, multi-year grants

            v.        the number of funding rounds per year

           vi.        the mechanism for recipients to report back on how their grant benefitted the community

          vii.        any additional exclusions

        viii.        any thresholds for local grants.

c)         recommends that local boards have the discretion to set their own thresholds for local grants, rather than adopting the proposed ‘up to $1,000 for Fast Response Local Grants’ and ‘over $1,000 for Local Grants’ thresholds.

d)        supports the draft community grants policy provisions for multi-board grants, to be utilised as appropriate and at the discretion of local boards.  Implementing this mechanism gives local boards the discretion to determine if existing joint funding committees will continue or not, which may mean the transitional phase as outlined in the report is not required.

 

Regional grants programme

e)         stresses that where a national or international event is planned funds should be available through the regional grant programme rather than the local grants programme.

f)          supports a Regional grants programme which is focused on providing multi-year strategic relationship grants and with key groups and organisations.

g)        supports the creation of strategic regional grant schemes which support the implementation of the Auckland Plan and related strategic action plans to achieve agreed outcomes and priorities.

h)        recommends that opportunities be sought to maximise the use of regional grants where they can support, and add value to projects, activities and programmes provided locally or across multiple local boards.

i)          recommends that no community grants budgets that are currently administered by local boards or joint funding committee are reallocated for the purposes of implementing the Regional grants programme.

 

Other identified issues

j)          recommends that relevant staff from the Community Development, Arts and Culture, Parks, Sport and Recreation and Infrastructure and Environmental Services report to local boards with a work programme and communications plan, including key dates and milestones to implement the new Community grants policy in preparation for the 2015 / 2016 financial year.

k)         requests that the Operations Division explore an integrated, and simple approach to administering the various grants programmes for the benefit of applicants, and also seek to locate a more efficient and effective way for all departments to work together to provide local boards with support, analysis, advice and monitoring of community grants.

Local board feedback on the draft Arts and Culture Strategic Action Plan (ACSAP)

 

Resolution number DT/2014/279

MOVED by Member JRK O'Connor, seconded by Member AP Roe:  

That the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board:

a)         express concern that the importance of local community arts as a driver of community development is not recognised in proposed goals and actions and therefore recommends that it should be included as a goal.

b)        recommends that communities are empowered to easily and affordably create and deliver public art, and that this aim should be included as a goal.

c)         endorse the Arts and Culture Strategic Action Plan’s proposed goals and actions and recommend that the Arts, Culture and Events Committee adopt them with the additions of local community arts being a driver of community development and the importance of making it easier for the community to create and deliver public art.

d)        note that further work on the implementation section will be undertaken with local boards from November 2014 to February 2015.

e)         notes that the resolution number DT/2013/13 from the 5 February 2013 Devonport-Takapuna Local Board meeting states ‘That the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board notes that the Auckland Plan Addendum (p.38) states that consideration of possible new cultural facilities will be addressed in the proposed cultural and arts strategy (now called the Arts and Culture Strategic Action Plan)’, but notes with concern that the document does not provide any insights that would help the local board make decisions on projects such as the Shore Exhibition Centre.
