Comments

3.       In March 2013, the Regional Development and Operations Committee (RDOC) resolved to continue the interim community funding approach for the 2013/2014 financial year (RDO/2013/32).

4.       One community funding round is scheduled for this financial year. The round closed on 15 July 2014.

5.       The Large Grants Funds – Community, Recreation and Youth provide contestable grants to community organisations that provide a comprehensive range of services and operate within the Rodney Local Board area and the Hibiscus Coast Subdivision of the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board. The grants offer substantial levels of funding that can be used for capital costs, project funding or operational costs. 

6.       The Community Grants Scheme is designed to support and promote existing and potential social service, recreation and community organisations at the local level.

7.       The Small Grants Fund – Youth is designed to support existing youth service providers at the local level by providing support for small capital purchases or projects.

8.       This fund is allocated at the local board’s discretion. In accordance with its fiduciary duties, the local board is to act honestly, avoid conflicts of interest and act in what the local board believes to be the best interests of the community.

9.       The Rodney and Hibiscus Coast Subdivision Local Board Funding Subcommittee Community Fund closed on 15 July 2014. The funds were advertised through local community networks, local media and on the Auckland Council website.

Rodney Heritage Item Assistance Fund Allocation 2014/2015 (Round 1)

 

File No.: CP2014/22350

 

  

Purpose

1.       This report presents the Rodney and Hibiscus Coast Subdivision Local Board Funding Subcommittee with funding recommendations for applications received during the first funding round of the Rodney Heritage Item Assistance Fund (RHIAF).

Executive summary

2.       Auckland Council considers there is a net public benefit derived from providing individuals and community groups caring for privately owned heritage features with funds towards maintenance and conservation costs.

3.       This report presents funding recommendations and information on the one application to the RHIAF received from within the Rodney and Hibiscus Coast Subdivision Local Board areas.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Rodney and Hibiscus Coast Subdivision Local Board Funding Subcommittee:

a)      approve the following grant allocations from the Rodney Heritage Item Assistance Fund:

i)        Allocation of $8,581 to application RHIA14_150001 from Heather Buttle as a contribution towards painting materials and labour.

 

 

Discussion

 

4.       The Rodney Heritage Item Assistance Fund (RHIAF) is a legacy Rodney District Council contestable fund which is open to the public for the purpose of conserving, restoring, and protecting valued heritage items within the former Rodney District for the enjoyment and benefit of current and future generations.

5.       The RHIAF supports a wide cross-section of the local community and provides funding support to individuals and community groups for projects which have previously included.

·    Physical works projects for heritage buildings, and archaeological sites such as fencing, painting or building work

·    Protective measures such as fencing to protect archaeological sites, earthquake strengthening or fire protection

·    Professional services e.g. research, conservation reports, conservation plans, heritage plans, conservation work specifications, management plans or supervision work

·    Maintenance of heritage trees such as pruning

6.       All applications to the RHIAF are reviewed against the fund eligibility criteria set out in the fund guidelines and are then subject to a merit assessed against the following criteria.

·    Significance: The project needs to have high heritage significance and regard will be given to whether the resource is scheduled for protection in the Auckland Council District Plan (Rodney Section). The project needs to enhance the qualities for which the heritage item is valued.

·    Funding necessity: Priority of the proposed works in the overall maintenance of the heritage values of the resource, including the necessity or urgency of the work. Consideration is given to whether alternative sources of funding are available for the proposed works, including the ability of the applicant to obtain funding from other agencies and their need for financial assistance.

·    Public access and educational value: The degree of physical or visual access or other clear public benefit such as educational value. The project relates to maintenance of the heritage resource in the public interest rather than works that are intended to provide private benefit. The project should enhance local amenity and public access to the heritage feature/site and benefit the wider community.

·    Compliance with good practice: The project meets the International Council on Monuments and Sites New Zealand Charter for the Conservation of Places of Cultural Heritage that provides recognised and standard principles for works proposed for heritage resources. The proposed project forms part of an overall plan for the restoration, conservation and/or protection of the heritage values of the resource (rather than ad-hoc work or routine maintenance).

·    Recognising Maori perspectives: Projects taking place on sites with significance to Maori or related to the care of marae artefacts and art works should be consistent with tikanga Maori and conservation techniques.

7.       The current interim approach to community funding endorsed by the Regional Development and Operations Committee (RDOC) in May 2011 allocated decision-making responsibility over the RHIAF to the Northern Local boards. In March 2014, the Regional Strategy and Policy Committee endorsed the extension of this interim approach to community funding for the 2014/2015 financial year.

8.       In May 2014 the Northern Joint Funding Committee meeting resolved to establish two sub-committees to consider and determine the funding applications and funding amounts of the legacy Rodney District and North Shore City councils.  Authority to consider and determine all the Rodney District Council legacy funding applications, including applications to the RHIAF, was delegated to the Rodney and Hibiscus Coast Subdivision Local Board Funding Subcommittee.
