Adoption of the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board Plan 2014

 

File No.: CP2014/23712

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       To adopt the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board Plan 2014.

Executive summary

2.       Under the Local Government (Auckland Council) Act 2009, each local board is required to adopt a local board plan by 31 October 2014.

3.       The Maungakiekie-Tāmaki draft Local Board Plan (“the draft plan”) was developed following informal community engagement. This was followed by formal consultation using the special consultative procedure (SCP) from 7 July to 6 August 2014.

4.       In total 746 submissions on the draft plan were received.  Of these 40 submitters were heard at the hearings on 2-3 September.

5.       The key themes arising from the feedback were:

·        Submitters supported the overall vision and strategic direction of the draft plan.

·        Submitters were broadly supportive of the six priority areas identified in the draft plan.

·        The greatest number of issues raised by submitters and requests for changes to the text of the draft plan were in the priority areas ‘Transport that meets our communities and Businesses’ Needs’, ‘Strong and Thriving Communities that are Enabled to Participate, Celebrate and Contribute’ and ‘Parks, Sports and Recreational Facilities that Promote Healthy Lifestyles and Enhance Well-being’.

6.       A number of areas of feedback in the submissions and the hearings on the draft plan were identified as needing further consideration by the local board, and the board proposes to make a series of changes to the text of the plan as a result.

7.       The Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board Plan is appended here as Attachment A, with tracked changes showing in detail the local board’s proposed changes to the draft plan as a result of public feedback.

8.       A summary of the feedback from submissions to all local boards is appended here as Attachment B.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board:

a)      adopts the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board Plan.

b)      delegates to the Chairperson the authority to approve any minor changes that may be necessary following adoption.

 

 

Comments

 

Background

9.       The Local Government (Auckland Council) Act 2009 requires each local board to develop a local board plan every three years. The first local board plan was adopted in 2011. This second local board plan must be adopted by 31 October 2014.

10.     Local board plans are strategic plans for the following three years and beyond. The plans reflect the priorities and preferences of the community. They guide how the local board:

·        makes decisions on local activities and projects

·        provides input into regional strategies and policies

·        works with other agencies that play a key role in the area, including central government agencies and council-controlled organisations.

11.     The plans inform the development of the council’s 10-year Long-term Plan. The plans also form the basis for development of the annual local board agreement for each of the following three financial years.

12.     The local board is required to use the SCP to consult on the draft local board plan. The SCP was held from 7 July to 6 August 2014. There were 746 submissions on the draft local board plan, 594 of which were pro forma.  Of these 40 submitters were heard at the hearings on 2-3 September.

Consideration

13.     The local board plan has been developed by considering a range of strategic issues, as well as the Auckland Plan and other regional strategies and policies.  Advice from subject matter experts, community views and public submissions has also been important in developing the plan.

14.     The vast majority of submissions received on the draft plan were supportive of the local board’s vision and direction. A total of 1183 responses were received in support of the outcomes, objectives and initiatives; a total of 10 responses did not support the outcomes, objectives and initiatives.

15.     In respect of the six priority areas set out in the draft plan, the majority of comments received in submissions were supportive of the draft plan’s content. Although many responses urged the board to make changes to the draft plan in the form of additions or amendments, very few specifically opposed the draft plan’s content or suggested deleting any initiatives.

16.     The parts of the draft plan which attracted the most responses urging the local board to make changes to the draft plan were the priority areas ‘Transport that meets our communities and Businesses’ Needs’, ‘Strong and Thriving Communities that are Enabled to Participate, Celebrate and Contribute’ and ‘Parks, Sports and Recreational Facilities that Promote Healthy Lifestyles and Enhance Well-being’.

17.     Additional analysis of the submissions received, plus the full submissions, are available as part of the Agenda and Agenda Attachments of the 2 September Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board Plan Hearings meeting on the Auckland Council website via the following link: http://infocouncil.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/.

18.     There were a number of issues and requested changes to the draft plan raised in submissions and in hearings which the local board has subsequently considered, and in some cases sought further advice on from subject matter experts, including:

Transport

·        Ensuring that transport options, including footpaths and roads, are safe and accessible;

·        Improving transport connectivity between transport hubs, town centres, business growth areas and other important local destinations;

·        Supporting increased monitoring of air quality around major roads;

·        Supporting recreational walking and cycling, and ensuring local connections to regional cycleways and walkways;

·        Supporting the proposed Westfield Diamond, linking the sourthern and eastern rail lines;

·        Increasing park and ride capacity at transport hubs; and

·        Increasing levels of service on the Onehunga rail line.

·        Working more closely with BIDs where strategy and vision align; and

·        Supporting the living wage.

Built Environment

·        Improving both town centres and neighbourhood centres;

·        Making information about heritage and local history more accessible;

·        Ensuring greater recognition of the heritage values of Maungakiekie-Tāmaki’s early state housing developments;

·        Ensuring greater recognition of Maori heritage and protection of sites of significance to Maori; and

·        Finding new ways to recognise heritage and improve the built environment.

·        Improving water quality, particularly in the Manukau Harbour;

·        Improving recreational access to the Manukau Harbour foreshore;

·        Supporting greater community participation in environmental initiatives;

·        Doing more to mitigate against the effects of climate change;

·        Exploring the possibility of installing solar panels on council-owned buildings; and

·        Reducing the prevalence of single-use plastic bags.

Community

·        Doing more to support migrant and refugee communities;

·        Focusing more on older people;

·        Ensuring that availability of community facilities keeps pace with development/intensification;

·        Improving levels of service at community facilities in Maungakiekie-Tāmaki;

·        Reviewing community facilities in Glen Innes with a view to expanding the library building and relocating the Citizens Advice Bureau, possibly to the same premises;

·        Doing more to address homelessness;

·        Doing more to address safety, particularly at night;

·        Working with other agencies to explore the development of a well-being hub;

·        Both supporting and opposing the introduction of fluoride to Onehunga’s drinking water;

·        Strengthening initiatives around smokefree environments;

·        Reducing the harms associated with class 4 gambling;

·        Working more closely with the Tāmaki Redevelopment Company where strategy and vision align;

·        Supporting Ruapotaka Marae to achieve its goals around capacity building and redevelopment of the marae precinct; and

·        Doing more to recognise the services already provided to the community by Ruapotaka Marae and working in partnership with the Marae in certain areas.

Parks, Sport and Open Spaces

·        Ensuring that parks and open spaces are safe and accessible for all, regardless of levels of ability, and that they respond to diversity;

·        Improving facilities for sports which infrastructure gaps currently exist;

·        Supporting improvements to Waikaraka Park, with a divergence in views amongst submitters as to how this can be best achieved;

·        Working with sports clubs, sports organisations (both local and regional) and schools to explore options to maximise space and facilities for the benefit of current and future users and the local community; and

·        Ensuring adequate public facilities in our open spaces and recreational facilities.

19.     As a result of public feedback on the draft plan, the local board’s subsequent consideration of issues raised by submitters and the further advice provided by subject matter experts, the board has proposed a number of changes to the plan.

20.     The Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board Plan is appended here as Attachment A, with tracked changes showing in detail the local board’s proposed changes to the text of the plan.

Local board views and implications

21.     The local board’s views have driven the development of the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board Plan.

Māori impact statement

22.     The Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board Plan contributes to improving wellbeing in Māori communities, as well as the community in general.

23.     Iwi representatives attended general engagement session held for the wider community throughout the early engagement phase in March and April. The Local Board met with mataawaka at Ruapotaka Marae in Glen Innes in April. This meeting with mataawaka during this early phase of engagement helped to inform key elements of the draft plan and in particular the Board has recognised the importance of Ruapotaka Marae to mataawaka.

24.     In July representatives of western and central local boards attended a hui with mana whenua leaders to discuss the draft local board plans from a mana whenua perspective and to enable mana whenua to provide feedback on the draft plans. The Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Chair attended this hui and undertook discussions with representatives of Ngai Tai ki Tāmaki, Ngati Tamatera Trust, Ngati Whatua, Te Kawerau a Maki and Te Akitai.

25.     The outcomes, objectives and initiatives included in the draft plan will support the delivery of the Auckland Plan Transformational shift 6 – “significantly lift Maori social and economic wellbeing”.  The draft plan identifies areas where specific partnership and working together will enhance outcomes for all of the community and recognise mana whenua as kaitiaki.

Implementation

26.     The long-term plan and the annual plans draw the local board plans together and prioritise the council projects into what is affordable and will best meet the strategic direction and needs of Auckland’s communities. The projects and initiatives contained in each local board plan need to be included in the Long-term Plan 2015-2025 and annual plans if they are to be implemented. This requires discussion and agreement with the governing body though the local board agreement process.
