vi)     Recommends greater recognition of the role of local boards and the activities being undertaken by local boards.  This includes:

·         Auckland Council’s role in arts and culture (page 9): to outline the role of local boards in producing arts and culture outcomes though local facilities, initiatives and programming.

·         Goal 2 (pages 32-33): to highlight how local boards can invest in arts and culture through events and programming, as well as advocating for new facility builds.

·         Goal 3 (pages 36-38): to reflect and recognise the opportunities local boards can provide arts and culture groups through community leases, venue hire, partnering and programming.

vii)    Recommends that since local board feedback has not been sought in time to influence the final draft Arts and Culture Strategic Acton Plan that will be presented to the October meeting of the Arts, Culture and Events Committee, that the Chair and Community and Cultural Strategy Manager be delegated authority to make final changes based on local board feedback.

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

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson PJ Coom, seconded by Member DA Yates:  

a)      That the Draft Community Grants Policy report be received.

b)      That the Waitematā Local Board:

i)       Endorses the Community Grants Policy as a regional framework for the Auckland Council community grants programme, noting that the local board will be supported to develop an individual schedule to the policy that sets out the specific outcomes, priorities and structure of their local grants programme.

ii)      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 plan

iii)     Supports the draft Community grants policy provisions which provide for a more streamlined and simpler application process.

iv)     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:

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

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

c.   the ability to ring-fence a portion of their budget for specific purposes

d.  the provision for recurring, multi-year grants

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

f.    the number of funding rounds per year

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

h.  any additional exclusions

i.    any thresholds for local grants.

v)      Notes that the Board may from time to time to enter into multi-year funding agreements with organisations who deliver specific events that align with Waitemata Local Board’s priority outcomes.  These will be delivered outside of the scope of the Community Grants Policy.

vi)     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.

vii)    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.

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

ix)     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.

x)      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.

xi)     Notes that in supporting the Regional grants programme, the current financial climate needs to be taken into account and requests as part of the Long-term Plan, work be undertaken to investigate the redistribution of annual contestable and recurring grant budgets held by operational departments are mapped to local boards, given their key role in community development

xii)    Requests that the Governing Body ensures that the regional grants process works effectively as local boards will be unable to compensate regional grants in addition to the support provided to local and multi board activities and programmes.

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

xiii)   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.

c)      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.

d)      Notes that a straightforward process, excellent communication and ensuring that potential applicants can easily find the information they require, will all be essential in delivering a successful community grants programme.

 

e)      Supports the proposal for Waitemata Local Board to participate in an interim ‘multi-board cluster’ with Albert-Eden Local Board, Orakei Local Board, and Puketapapa Local Board, to consider jointly supporting projects and activities of mutual benefit, noting that if this is agreed:

i)     staff will work with participating local boards to agree funding priorities and terms of reference for the cluster;

ii)    participating local boards will continue to hold their funds separately within the cluster, and can choose whether or not to allocate funds towards individual grant applications on a case-by-case basis;

iii)   additional multi-board clusters can still be explored, and will be supported wherever feasible;

iv)   the cluster is a transitional arrangement and would exist for the duration of the 2015-2016 financial year only, unless otherwise agreed by the participating local boards.
