Significance and Engagement Policy

 

File No.: CP2014/22536

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       To receive background information on the draft Significance and Engagement Policy and to gain feedback on engagement guidelines.

Executive summary

2.       A draft Significance and Engagement Policy was adopted by the Regional Strategy and Policy Committee on 4 September for public consultation from 22 September to 19 October 2014.

3.       The legislation requires the policy to consider community preferences about engagement on decisions relating to specific issues.

4.       The policy will be supported by updated guidelines, case studies and templates providing more detail on engagement principles and good practice.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Youth Advisory Panel:

a)      receive the draft policy and suggests other ideas of how the council could encourage feedback on the draft from younger people

b)      provide feedback on current engagement guidelines which will help to inform the engagement plan for the draft Long-term Plan.

 

 

Comments

5.       The draft Significance and Engagement Policy was adopted by the Regional Strategy and Policy Committee on 4 September for public consultation from 22 September to 19 October 2014. This draft policy is attached for the panel’s information.

6.       The Local Government Act (2002) sets out principles for consultation that all councils must follow when consulting.

7.       Additional principles have been included within the policy as a way of recognising the needs of Auckland’s diverse communities and the value that is placed on their involvement in decision-making processes.

8.       The draft Significance and Engagement Policy also sets out guidance on the kinds of methods that could be used depending on the significance of the issue.

9.       The changes to legislation mean that some of the current requirements for formal consultations could be relaxed. How the council manages formal submissions and hearings is something that the council is currently looking into in preparation for the Long-term Plan consultation in early 2015.

10.     Advice from YAP about what would make formal processes more youth friendly would be welcome.

Consultation on the draft policy

11.     Consultation will be targeted at interest groups and will seek out feedback from communities who are often not involved in council’s consultation processes. However, consultation will largely be focused online through the ShapeAuckland website.

12.     In addition, the council will use Our Auckland, the People’s Panel and social media as a way of further encouraging feedback on the draft policy and on how the council could improve its engagement with the community.

Updating Engagement Guidelines

13.     Auckland Council has an existing Consultation and Engagement Guidebook which is being updated alongside the development of the policy.

14.     The Youth Advisory Panel’s advice for council staff will be included within the guidebook. Please provide your feedback on whether the additional information that is currently within the guidebook is still appropriate to include. This information is attached.

15.     Other feedback that has been received on how to improve engagement follows. The Youth Advisory Panel’s feedback on them would be welcome:

·        involve schools through Civic Studies (or similar) – make it easy for young people to get involved by going to them. Work with schools/tertiary institutions

·        relax the brand guidelines; communicate in a youth friendly way

-    get the invitation right (targeted)

-    enable the participants to drive the process  

·        find ways to make the information easily available, so people who are pressed for time can still contribute. This leads on from how we get people to vote; give an opinion and really ‘own’ their city

·        bring younger and older people together for intergenerational discussions.

Consideration

Local board views and implications

16.     An initial discussion took place with the Local Board Chairs Forum on 28 April 2014. Local board members were invited to a workshop to discuss aspects of the draft policy on 22 August and workshops are taking place with many individual local boards. 

17.     Formal feedback has also been requested on the draft policy.

Māori impact statement

18.     Auckland Council recognises that Māori are a critical / important audience that needs to be engaged in a meaningful way.

19.     The Treaty of Waitangi Audit 2012 and the Auckland Council Guide on Engaging with Māori were reviewed during the development of the draft policy to give effect to the council’s Māori Responsiveness Framework. The draft policy was presented to the Independent Māori Statutory Board for discussion and feedback. The results of a recent research study on Māori engagement with Auckland Council will be considered prior to finalising the draft policy and to identify improvements with the engagement guidelines.

20.     Discussions on the draft policy and guidelines will also take place at a Mana Whenua forum during the consultation period.

 

Implementation

21.     Auckland Council does not currently have an adopted engagement policy. It does however have:

·        a consultation and engagement guidebook

·        a guide on engagement with Māori

·        a staff training programme in community engagement through the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2)

·        an internal network which is used to share case studies

·        an annual awards event to celebrate good practice.

22.     Further work is taking place to improve the guidance that is available, in particular with respect to engaging with Auckland’s culturally and demographically diverse communities.

Draft Arts and Culture Strategic Action Plan (ACSAP) Update

 

File No.: CP2014/19398

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       To receive an update on the Arts and Culture Strategic Action Plan (ACSAP) consultation and advise  of any issues particularly relevant to children and young people that should be considered in the development of the implementation plan; and also advise on youth organisations and expert individuals  that should be included for further targeted consultation on implementation.

Executive summary

2.       The draft Arts and Culture Strategic Action Plan (ACSAP) was consulted on from 23 June to 24 July 2014.

3.       A total of 440 submissions were received – 50 from arts and culture organisations, 109 from children and young people and the remainder from the general public.

4.       Submitters endorsed the six goals and sixteen action areas in the ACSAP.  Feedback from local boards and key stakeholders indicated that considerable further work is required on the implementation section of the plan. 

5.       As a result of this feedback, the ACSAP has been split into two parts:

·   The ‘strategic section’ of the plan, which outlines the goals and action areas; and

·   An ‘implementation section’, which will provide detail on the specific actions to be delivered and by whom, timeframes and measures.

6.       The strategic section (goals and action areas) will be reported to the Arts, Culture and Events Committee for adoption in October 2014.

7.       The implementation section requires further work and engagement with local boards and key stakeholders. This will be reported to the Arts, Culture and Events Committee for adoption in March 2015.

 

 

Recommendation/s

That the Youth Advisory Panel:

a)      advise of any issues particularly relevant to children and young people that should be considered in the development of the implementation plan.

b)      advise of any youth organisations and expert individuals that should be included in further targeted consultation.

 

 

Comments

Significance for the Youth Advisory Panel

8.       The ACSAP goals and actions have been aligned to the Auckland Plan strategic direction ‘integrate arts and culture into our everyday lives’; the Māori Plan for Tāmaki Makaurau; and I am Auckland, particularly goal 6 ‘Auckland is my Playground’.

9.       Improving opportunities for children and young people’s involvement in arts and culture activities is important to meet the goals of all these plans.  To learn, experience and participate in arts and culture by helping to remove barriers, supporting the creative sector and providing culturally relevant opportunities for involvement.

 

Consultation feedback

10.     The draft Arts and Culture Strategic Action Plan (ACSAP) was consulted on from 23 June to 24 July 2014.

11.     A total of 440 submissions were received – 50 from arts and culture organisations, 109 from children and young people and the remainder from the general public.

12.     Attachment A contains the quantitative summary of the feedback received in response to the specific questions in the survey.

13.     A specific consultation with children and young people was undertaken during the school holidays, accounting for the high number of responses from these groups. The age range was from 4-16 years old. Staff worked with Uxbridge Creative Centre, The Auckland Performing Arts Centre, Auckland Central Library, Auckland Art Gallery and schools to run visioning and imagining exercises and collect feedback via a specifically designed worksheet. Two tertiary students were employed to assist in this exercise.  Attachment B contains a copy of the worksheet.

14.     The exercise showed that the children and young people were very aware of Auckland’s cultural diversity and had an appreciation of cultural festivals and learning about others and experiencing new things. They also expressed enjoyment in experiencing art through creating and seeing it around them.

 

Submission analysis

 

15.     Submitters endorsed the six goals and sixteen action areas in the ACSAP.

16.     The proposed, final ACSAP goals and action areas (priority goals and action areas are highlighted) are:

Goals

Action areas

All Aucklanders can access and participate in arts and culture

Place Aucklanders at the centre of arts and culture planning and delivery

Better communicate what’s on offer

Remove barriers to access and participants

Auckland values and invests in arts and culture

Grow and deliver strategic investment in arts and culture

Evaluate and promote the economic, social, cultural and environmental value of investment in Auckland’s art and culture

A network of vibrant arts and culture organisations and facilities meets Auckland’s diverse needs

Foster arts and culture organisations and facilities that build and promote Auckland’s unique identity

Support arts and culture organisations to engage with Auckland’s diverse population in innovative and inclusive ways

Arts and culture organisations work together as a complementary regional system

Provide a regional spread of vibrant diverse and affordable creative spaces

Arts and culture are intrinsic to Auckland’s place making

Tell our stories by encouraging unique and distinctive public art that reflects and responds to our place

Make it easier to plan, create and deliver innovative art and design in public places

Engage more artists and Aucklanders in art in public places

Auckland celebrates a unique cultural identity

Celebrate Māori and their culture as a point of difference

Champion Auckland’s unique arts and culture

Auckland has a robust and flourishing creative economy

Foster a robust network of creative industries

Champion innovation to attract talent

 

17.     Key themes from the public consultation were:

·    The importance of public art and arts and culture in place making

·    Affordability and accessibility to arts and culture for audiences and participants 

·    Honouring Māori culture and recognising the contribution of multiculturalism to Auckland’s identity

·    Communicate the value of arts and culture to children, i.e. interactive artist/children’s programme to foster arts and culture between generations

·    Greater recognition of Pacific and ethnic contributions to the sector and Auckland’s arts and culture

·    Revise the graffiti policy and look at legitimising street art through “zones of tolerance”.

Next steps

18.     The ‘strategic’ part of the plan, outlining the goals and actions areas will be reported to the Arts, Culture and Events Committee for adoption in October 2014.

19.     The mayor’s proposal for the Long-term Plan 2015-25 now requires us to refine the detailed actions and look closely at implementation.

20.     Further engagement with local boards, key stakeholders, mana whenua and mataawaka on implementation will take place between October 2014 and February 2015. The implementation section will be reported to the Arts, Culture and Events Committee in March 2015 for adoption, and the ACSAP in its entirety will be finalised.

Consideration

Local board views and implications

21.     There was a predominantly positive response to the Draft ACSAP from the boards who consider  they can use it support their own arts and culture aspirations, and align local board plan objectives to the ACSAP. Local boards will continue to be engaged in developing the implementation section.

Māori impact statement

22.     The Independent Māori Statutory Board (IMSB) is represented on the ACSAP steering group to provide guidance on content and process. The IMSB’s Māori Plan for Tāmaki Makaurau was a guiding document underpinning the development of the draft ACSAP.

23.     Māori aspirations and outcomes were clearly identified and addressed in the draft ACSAP with Māori actions woven through all the action areas; this will not change. The ACSAP acknowledges and celebrates Māori culture as Auckland’s point of difference, and mana whenua as Treaty partners in a multicultural Auckland.

24.     Further engagement with mana whenua and mataawaka is planned as part of developing the implementation section of the ACSAP.

·    Social Sport Project

·    Local board initiatives

·    Equipment Recycling Project

·    Us Girls

·    Sport and recreation discount card and a sports application

14.     The membership and purpose of the steering team are set out in the attached Terms of Reference document which has just been revised in September 2014.

15.     The steering team is structured to have oversight, governance and provide strategic direction to the implementation team and projects being delivered by Auckland Council and our key sector partners such as Auckland Sport and Sport New Zealand.

16.     The youth representative role on the steering team has an exciting opportunity to influence direction, decision making and change. In addition, it will provide a youth focus and advocate informally to the wider Youth Advisory Panel for feedback.

17.     The appointment would be until 30 June 2015 at which time the panel would either reinstate this person or delegate a new representative to the steering team.

18.     The steering team currently meets monthly through establishment and will be moving to bi-monthly by March 2015.

East West Connections Project – Public Engagement

 

File No.: CP2014/23140

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       To receive information from Auckland Transport (AT) and the NZ Transport Agency (Transport Agency) about the East West Connections project, and upcoming engagement events for the project.

Executive summary

2.       East West Connections is a joint Transport Agency and AT programme to improve freight efficiency, commuter travel, public transport and walking and cycling options over the next 30 years. The programme area is shown in Attachment 1.

A project has been identified to address two priority issues:

·    improving connections into and out of the Onehunga-Penrose industrial area

·     improving public transport between Māngere, Ōtāhuhu and Sylvia Park.

The aims of the project are:

·     to create more reliable travel times and better transport connections for freight and business traffic

·    make travel times by bus more reliable by creating priority for buses.

3.       A number of potential options have been identified to address these issues and an initial assessment of the options has been undertaken. This included assessing factors such as transport performance, construction costs, ability to consent, constructability, urban design social and natural environment, public health and cultural heritage effect.

4.       There are now six shortlisted options. AT and the Transport Agency are seeking feedback from the public on these options. The feedback received will be used to further develop the options and assist us to identify the option to be progressed.

5.       AT and the Transport Agency would like to inform the Youth Advisory Panel of upcoming public engagement events, and encourage Panel members to attend these events and spread the word about these events to other youth.

a)   Public open days will be held:

·    11 October, 10am-1pm: Onehunga Primary School Hall

·    16 October, 3:30-7:30pm: Otahuhu College Sports Pavilion

·    19 October, 1-4pm: Te Papapa Squash Club

b)   Community workshops will be held for people who wish to provide more detailed feedback on the project, focused on particular areas of interest:

·    20 October, 6:30-9pm: Māngere Inlet, Waikaraka walkway and Ann's Creek

·    21 October, 6:30-9pm: Onehunga town centre

·    22 October, 6:30-9pm: Sylvia Park and Mutukaroa-Hamlins Hill

·    23 October, 6:30-9pm: Public transport between Māngere, Ōtāhuhu and Sylvia Park

Interested people should RSVP to eastwest@nzta.govt.nz.

c)   Feedback can be provided online at www.nzta.govt.nz/east-west.

d)   Feedback closes on 31 October 2014 at 5pm.

 

 

Recommendation/s

That the Youth Advisory Panel:

a)      note the community open days or workshop dates regarding the East West Connections project.

b)      agree that relevant Youth Advisory Panel members attend, if they are able, and provide feedback to AT and the Transport Agency on the East West Connections project (or alternatively fill in the feedback form distributed at the Youth Advisory Panel meeting).

 

 

Comments

Significance for the Youth Advisory Panel

6.       The East West Connections project is located in an area with a relatively high youth population. The project will therefore have an impact on youth who live, work and play in the area.

7.       The project recognises that transport, including public and active transport options, are important to the youth population.

Consideration

Local board views and implications

8.       AT and the Transport Agency are engaging with the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu and Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Boards.

Māori impact statement

9.       AT and the Transport Agency are engaging with Mana Whenua groups and Mataawaka.

Youth Advisory Panel - Work Programme Update

 

File No.: CP2014/22670

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       To advise that the Youth Advisory Panel’s work programme has been ratified and discuss opportunities for its integration with the work programmes of the other demographic panels.

Executive summary

2.       All demographic panels are to prepare an annual work programme for ratification by the Regional Strategy and Policy Committee. The Youth Advisory Panel’s work programme is expected to be ratified on 9 October 2014.  The work programmes of the Pacific Peoples and Ethnic Peoples and Seniors Advisory Panels have already been ratified.

3.       The panels’ terms of reference also require that the work programmes of the different panels be integrated wherever possible.  The panel should review the other panels’ programmes and discuss opportunities for integration, alignment and collaboration.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Youth Advisory Panel:

a)      note that its work programme is expected to be ratified by the Regional Strategy and Policy Committee on 9 October 2014

b)      receive the work programme of the Ethnic Peoples, Pacific Peoples and Seniors Advisory Panels

c)      discuss opportunities for integration, alignment and collaboration between its work programme and that of the other panels.

 

Comments

4.       The Governing Body at its meeting on Thursday 19 December 2013 resolved to establish five demographic panels for this term of council (GB/2013/160). The terms of reference for the panels require an annual work programme to be ratified by the Regional Strategy and Policy Committee.

5.       The work programme for the Youth Advisory Panel has been put on the agenda for approval of the Regional Strategy and Policy Committee at its meeting on Thursday 9 October 2014.

6.       The Ethnic Peoples, Pacific Peoples and Seniors Advisory Panels work programmes have already been ratified. These work programmes have been updated with standardised and more consistent terminology and are attached to the report.

7.       As the membership of the Disability Advisory Panel is currently under review their work programme will not be developed until the end of the year.

8.       Wherever possible, the annual work programme for each panel is to be integrated with that of other panels. With the majority of the work programmes complete, the work programmes can now be shared so panels can be aware of the priorities of others and discuss opportunities for integration, alignment and collaboration. This will assist staff when reporting to two or more panels and may lead to collaborative projects between panels. There may also be opportunities for a combined summit.

9.       Below is a table of the key priorities of the panels.

Subcommittee update

 

File No.: CP2014/23286

 

  

Purpose

1.       To provide subcommittees and working parties an opportunity to update the panel on actions; and to enable the Youth Advisory Panel to decide on the use of subcommittees during the 2014-2015 term.

Executive Summary

2.       In 2013-2014 the panel established eight subcommittees around the goals of I Am Auckland to provide feedback on policy, programme development, and priority actions. The panel elected a member to lead each subcommittee. An update was provided at each meeting on progress. Subcommittee leads also provided input into the panel’s executive subcommittee.  The subcommittees were:

·    Goal 1 - I have a voice, am valued and contribute

·    Goal 2 - I am important, belong, am cared about and feel safe

·    Goal 3 - I am happy, healthy and thriving

·    Goal 4 - I am given equal opportunities to succeed and be given a fair go

·    Goal 5 - I can get around and get connected

·    Goal 6 - Auckland is my playground

·    Goal 7 - Rangatahi tū Rangatira (alI rangatahi will thrive)

·    Communications subcommittee.

3.       In the 2014-15 term a working party structure is proposed to enable groups to form around elements of the work programme that align with their interest and capacity as need arises.

4.       From the September meeting the following working parties have been established:

·    Draft Community Facility Network Plan – members: Savanna Steele, Tony Sua, MacKenzie Valgre

·      Homegrown Youth Change-makers Project – members: Flora Apulu, Sam Yoon, Tim Matthews, Torranice Campel, Sam Vailli, Savanna Steele, Isabella Lenihan-Ikin, Tesree Appanna

 

Recommendations

That the Youth Advisory Panel:

a)      thank the subcommittee/working party leads for their updates

b)      forward subcommittee/working party updates for the attention of respective local youth voice mechanisms

c)      disestablish the subcommittee structure and replace this with working parties as required
