Developing the Empowered Communities Approach

 

File No.: CP2015/04942

 

  

Purpose

1.       This report provides an overview of the Empowered Communities Approach including local board involvement in developing the approach.

Executive Summary

2.       The Mayor’s Proposal for the Long-term Plan 2015-2025 (LTP) includes developing a more empowered community approach to the work of Auckland Council.  The proposed changes are:

·    to transition delivery to a more empowered community approach

·    to move away from direct delivery (and therefore save overheads) and fund community groups to deliver more

·    for local boards to play a much more active role by allocating more funding through them.

3.       The purpose of the Empowered Communities Approach (ECA) is to develop a new, more effective and empowering approach to the way council delivers services and supports community activities.  The ECA will establish a new operating model for the Community Development and Safety (CDS) unit which will shift its service delivery to have a greater focus on local and community empowerment, with a view to embedding this way of working across council departments and council-controlled organisations.

4.       A reduction in the cost to deliver community development over time is expected, starting with savings in the 2015/2016 financial year.

5.       A political advisory group (PAG) has been established to provide strategic advice and guidance as staff develop the ECA.  Discussion has centred on what empowered communities look like, and what shifts are required within council to support them. The PAG meeting in March endorsed the proposed approach.  PAG feedback included the importance of meeting local needs, rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach.  Two further PAG meetings will be held on 16 April and 4 May 2015.

6.       An engagement programme with local boards is underway.  Key steps in this are:

·    two chairpersons and portfolio holder workshops

·    individual board workshops in April

·    a report to local board business meetings in May/early June 2015.

The final empowered communities approach and the CDS operational model will be reported to the Regional Strategy and Policy Committee for endorsement in June 2015, for implementation in July-December 2015.

7.       A targeted programme of community engagement is underway.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board:

a)      receive the Developing the Empowered Communities Approach report.

b)      where required by the timing of the existing business meeting, either delegate, hold an extraordinary meeting or accept a late report so that the local board can provide formal feedback during the period 5 May – 3 June 2015.

 

Comments

Background

8.       The Mayor’s Proposal for the Long-term Plan 2015-2025 (LTP) includes developing a more empowered community approach to the work of Auckland Council.  The proposed changes to the community development function are:

·    to transition delivery to a more empowered community approach

·    to move away from direct delivery (and therefore save overheads) and fund community groups to deliver more

·    for local boards to play a much more active role by allocating more funding through them.

9.       The purpose of the Empowered Communities Approach (ECA) is to develop a new, more effective and empowering approach to the way council delivers services and supports community activities.  The Empowered Communities Approach Project will establish a new operating model for the Community Development and Safety (CDS) unit which will shift its service delivery to have a greater focus on local and community empowerment, with a view to embedding this way of working across the council family.

10.     A reduction in the cost to deliver community development over time is expected, starting with savings in the 2015/2016 financial year.

11.     A political advisory group has been established to provide strategic advice and guidance as staff develop the empowered communities approach.  Discussion has centred on what empowered communities look like, and what shifts are required within council to support them.

Political Advisory Group

12.     A Political Advisory Group (PAG) has been established to provide strategic advice and guidance to staff during the development of the empowered communities approach.  Membership of the PAG includes the Mayor, six local board members (Andrew Baker, Efeso Collins, Vanessa Neeson, Peter Haynes, Kay McIntyre, Julia Parfitt), five governing body members (Cathy Casey, Linda Cooper, George Wood, Alf Filipaina, Penny Hulse) and a representative from the Independent Māori Statutory Board (Karen Wilson). 

13.     At their meeting on 6 March 2015 the PAG endorsed the proposed approach.  The key points discussed were:

·    ‘Empowered Communities: Enabling Council’: The approach is underpinned by a two-way relationship between council and the community; leading to improved outcomes for Auckland.

·    Describing empowered communities: an empowered community is one where individuals, whanau and communities have the power and ability to influence decisions, take action and make change happen in their lives and communities. This includes communities of place, interest and identity.

·    How to support community empowerment: community empowerment is about providing real opportunities for people to participate and fostering the conditions that support this. An empowered communities approach is a ‘way of working’ that empowers people to play a more active role in the decisions that affect their communities.

14.     Working in a way that empowers communities requires ‘whole of council’ shifts to:

·    provide a gateway / portal into council resources and information

·    provide more support for local boards and other areas of council to work together in joined-up ways with local communities

·    facilitate and embed the empowered communities approach across council

·    develop and implement creative new engagement and participation practices

·    support the devolution of resources / functions / control to communities.

15.     Other key feedback from the PAG included:

·    the model should involve high trust between council and the community and be based on building good relationships

·    the path Māori have been on provides an example for the ECA, which should draw from the Māori Responsiveness Framework

·    one size does not fit all and the model may look different across different activities of council and in different communities, reflecting the make-up of those communities and their capability and capacity

·    all parts of council need to work collaboratively to make this work. This should include the council-controlled organisations (CCOs)

·    capacity building is important and there need to be examples of how to do this effectively

·    recognition that embedding this approach will take time.

16.     Staff will report back to the PAG on 16 April 2015 with the following:

·    revised approach

·    the proposed operating model for the CDS unit

·    supporting tools

·    budget and implementation implications

Consultation and engagement

19.     Engagement with community stakeholders is ongoing, with initial feedback workshops held in March 2015 across the region.  At the workshops, staff explored with participants what capabilities and ideas for empowering communities, equity issues and activities the community see themselves as best delivering.  Engagement was sought on what is best kept as council core functions in relation to community development and safety.

20.     Internal staff consultation is ongoing as the approach is developed.  A number of workshops have been held with staff from all departments in the operations division in the first instance.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

21.     The ECA aims to provide a much more active role for local boards in community development.

22.     ECA builds on the strong focus on community led planning and development in the Local Board Plans 2014.

23.     Local boards views will be sought through the process outlined above.

Māori impact statement

24.     The ECAP has the potential to impact on Māori over time.  Engagement with mataawaka and mana whenua will be undertaken during the engagement phase to enable staff to understand potential impacts.

25.     A representative from the Independent Māori Statutory Board sits on the PAG.

Implementation

26.     The model will be implemented in CDS in 2015/2016.  The approach will be rolled out across the whole of council over time.

Auckland Transport Update to Hibiscus and Bays Local Board, April 2015

 

File No.: CP2015/05333

 

  

Purpose

1.       To respond to local board requests on transport-related matters and to provide information to elected members about Auckland Transport (AT) activities.

Executive Summary

2.       The report provides an update on transport matters for the information of the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board and a register of transport issues in the local board’s area, as collated by Auckland Transport’s Elected Member Relationship Manager North.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board:

a)      approve construction of Project 383, the provision of five - six parallel car parks on the property at 8 Galbraith Green, Silverdale, based on a frim cost estimate of $61,000.

 

Comments

Auckland’s new directional signage system

 

3.       A cross-council project team led by AT has been tasked with cleaning up the jumble of signs in Auckland city. At present directional signage, or ‘wayfinding’, varies all over Auckland. Visitors in particular say Auckland’s signage is not clear and can be contradictory.

 

4.       A single directional signage system will help Aucklanders and visitors to use buses, trains, ferries and make it simpler for walking, cycling or driving.

 

5.       The new signs will also be designed to carry additional information, including icons for activities such as cycling or walking, and in some instances provide estimated travel times together with information on local points of interest.  There will also be a new Public Transport signage system that will provide more information but be easier to use.

 

6.       Prototype signage is currently in place along the Dominion Road Safe Cycle Route and the Grafton Gully Cycleway to assess how effective the signage is for cyclists. In mid-2015 prototype signage will be installed around Wynyard Quarter through to the ferry terminal and also in New Lynn and Northcote Town Centre.  The project team is currently holding key stakeholder presentations and will be working with focus groups once all prototypes are in place to discuss how they are performing and whether any changes are required.

 

7.       The proposed new signage system will be peer reviewed to ensure that it meets the needs of people travelling around Auckland and is in line with global best practice.  Following this, a strategy and implementation plan will guide the introduction of the new signage system.  This is expected to take some years as the signs are intended to be implemented as budgets allow or when associated with new capital works, renewals and maintenance programmes.

2015 Public Transport Fare Review: Aligning fares for the introduction of Integrated Fares

 

9.       The focus of this year’s public transport fare review is to better align short and long distance fares in preparation for a change to a simpler zone based system (integrated fares) next year.

 

10.     As transport changes in the city continue, improving the fare structure with integrated fares will allow the introduction of the New Network, which will see more frequent services on key routes at a minimum average of every 15 minutes, 7am to 7pm, seven days a week.

 

11.     AT’s HOP card, electric trains on the rail network, the first step towards the construction of the City Rail Link and an investigation of the benefits of light rail are all designed to provide Aucklanders with choices that will offer them the freedom to more effectively use their time.

 

12.     The changes to public transport fares through the 2015 review will see:

 

·        Small increases of between 5 and 10 cents for short distance (stage one and stage two trips) for those using the AT HOP card;

·        No increases on longer AT HOP trips on buses and trains, other than for stage five journeys which receive a tertiary concession;

·        Reductions of 5c and 16c per trip for stage six and seven child fares, using AT HOP;

·        Increases for some cash fares by 50 cents, to increase the incentive for passengers to take advantage of the fare discounts that AT HOP provides;

·        Decreases of some fares on Hobsonville and West Harbour ferry services by between 24c and 50c a trip; and

·        Tertiary and child concession fares available on the InnerLink bus service.

 

13.     There will also be some changes to pricing for the CityLink bus service. This service had received funding from the Heart of the City business organisation and Waterfront Auckland; however, this subsidy has now ended. AT therefore has reluctantly introduced a 50 cent (adult single trip), 40 cent (tertiary student single trip) and 30 cent (child single trip) fare for AT HOP card users. Single trip cash fares will be $1 for adults, 50 cents for tertiary students and 40 cents for a child.

 

14.     On average, fares contribute 47% to the total cost of providing public transport services – the remainder is provided through government (NZTA) contributions and rates subsidies. While petrol and diesel prices have fallen over recent months, and fluctuated in recent weeks, fuel prices make up only a small percentage of operator costs and by far the largest expense is wages.

 

15.     Public transport patronage growth has continued strongly during recent fuel price reductions showing that customers are choosing to use improved services rather than face congested traffic conditions. Latest figures show that public transport patronage is at an all-time high, with patronage totalling 77,088,240 passenger trips for the 12 months to February 2015, an annual increase of 9.5%.

Upcoming Discussions and Consultations

 

16.     All local boards will be invited to discussions with AT staff during May on the following proposals:

 

·        Integrated Fares: AT’s proposed change to an integrated fare structure has been well-signalled in advance, but in May the specifics of the final ‘zonal’ system proposal will be discussed. Of particular interest to some local boards will be the fare boundaries. The indicative fare levels proposed will also be discussed, as will the way the new fare system may be enhanced with new fare products in future.

 

·        Regional Public Transport Plan (RPTP): The current RPTP was finalised in 2013, but now requires some amendments in respect of four specific areas: Integrated fares (as above), the New Network (PTOM unit changes for South Auckland and Hibiscus Coast only), Light Rail (foreshadowed in the draft RLTP) and the Ferry Development Strategy. Amendments to the RPTP require a formal amendment process involving public consultation, which will be undertaken between 1 and 25 May 2015, with a view to adoption of the final RPTP on 2 July 2015.  AT plans to offer formal hearings during June 2015 or parties which wish to be formally heard.  Note that AT is consulting on the variations to the RPTP only, not the whole Plan. Further, given that there has already been extensive consultation on the New Network in the South and Hibiscus Coast, there won’t be further consultation on this – the variation will be modification of the PTOM units listed in the 2013 document to reflect the new routes arising from the consultation process already undertaken.

 

·        Parking Strategy: AT consulted widely on the draft Parking Strategy in 2014, and the final outcomes of the process are being reported to the AT Board at its meetings on 31 March 2015 (residential parking) and on 28 April 2015 (the remaining 14 policies). The review covered almost every aspect of parking policy, including on- and off-street parking, arterial roads, parking design, parking permits, park-and-rides and parking pricing, among others. As soon as the AT Board has approved the policy, the final outcome and its implications as it applies to individual local board areas can be discussed.

 

·        Berm Planting: The AT Executive recently approved a statement of AT’s proposed berm planting practice, which includes a proposed role for local boards in three aspects: (a) deciding whether they wish to allow berm planting at all in their area; (b) determining whether specific berm planting proposals meet their local place-making criteria; and (c) an opportunity to galvanise local action where approved berm planting initiatives no longer comply with the criteria. AT will be talking with local boards which wish to discuss the detail of the proposed berm planting practice at this series of May workshops.

 

·        Regional Signage Project: AT and AC have been jointly engaged in the development of a consistent regional system of wayfinding and signage, and this will be trialled in three areas (Northcote, New Lynn and the Wynyard Quarter) over the next few months, commencing in July. It is expected that from January 2016 the signage, as modified as a result of feedback during the trial, will be able to be rolled out across the region, replacing existing signage as it comes up for renewal. AT is keen to present the proposed signage suite to local boards across the region at the May workshop sessions, and later in the year to organise tours of some of the trial sites for local board members.

Consultations

 

27.     Following a request to address visibility issues on Browns Bay Road, Browns Bay, documentation describing a proposal to install NSAAT restrictions in the area was forwarded to the local board's TPLs on 4 February 2015, with a request for responses no later than 5 March 2015. No objections were received from members.

 

28.     Documentation describing a proposal to install NSAAT restrictions on Hythe Terrace, Mairangi Bay, in response to concerns about visibility and accessibility along the narrow stretch of road between 32 - 38A Hythe Terrace, was forwarded to members on 12 February 2015 with a request for responses no later than 6 March. No objections were received from members.

 

29.     Documentation on a proposal to install NSAAT restrictions on Coventry Way, Long Bay, was forwarded to the local board's TPLs on 27 February 2015 with a request for comments no later than 13 March 2015. No objections were received to the proposal.

 

30.     In response to concerns raised by local residents with regard to restricted access/egress as a result of cars parking on the narrow section of road close to 22 Hebron Road, Waiake, the local board's TPLs were advised on 23 February that AT proposes the installation of NSAAT restrictions in the area. Members were asked to provide comment no later than 16 March 2015. Member Cooper requested that that the consultation letter be distributed to all residents of Hebron Road, Ellangowan Way, Bethel Road and to Torbay School. These comments were forwarded to the engineers for consideration. No further objections were received.

 

31.     A second request for feedback on a proposal to install NSAAT restrictions on Hebron Road, Waiake, was sent the local board's TPLs on 27 February 2015 with a request for comments no later than 20 March. Member Cooper indicated he wasn't sure about restrictions being installed on both sides of Hebron Road and asked whether, as these were of a significant length, that the consultation letter be distributed to all residents on Hebron Road, together with Ellangowan Way and Bethel Road, as it could affect them with overflow parking, and Torbay School as the school pick up/drop off parking extends beyond Deep Creek Road via Bethel Road and connecting walkways to Hebron Road. Board Chair Julia Parfitt agreed with Member Cooper's comments, adding that NSAAT restrictions on both sides of the road was excessive and advising that Hebron Road is used for overflow parking for the beach. These comments were forwarded to the engineers who advised that they have reviewed the feedback and will be consulting again with some of the residents on Hebron Road for a reduced length of NSAAT restrictions.

 

32.     Documentation on a proposal to install NSAAT restrictions on Coventry Way, Long Bay, was forwarded to the local board's TPLs on 27 February 2015 with a request for comments no later than 13 March 2015. No objections were received from members.

 

33.     Documentation on the proposed installation of bus stops and NSAAT Restrictions on Millwater Parkway, Silverdale, in the vicinity of Laura Jane Drive, was forwarded to the local board's TPLs on 30 March 2015 with a request for responses no later than 10 April 2015. 

 

34.     Documentation describing a proposal to install two bus stops and associated NSAAT on Millwater Parkway, Silverdale, in the vicinity of Kettlewell Drive, was forwarded to the local board's TPLs on 31 March 2010 with a request for responses no later than 10 April 2015.

 

35.     The local board’s TPLs were advised about proposals to install cycle parking at 210, 219 and 224 Dairy Flat Highway Albany; 368 Beach Road and 1 Montrose Terrace, Mairangai on 31 March 2015 with a request for a response no later than 13 April 2015.

Issues Update

 

36.     The following Issues Update comprises issues raised by Elected Members and Local Board Services staff to 1 April 2015:

Location

Issue

Status

1

Anzac Road, Browns Bay

Request for pedestrian crossing facility on Anzac Road, Browns Bay.

Julia Parfitt, Chairperson, asked on 11 February 2015 that an additional pedestrian crossing facility be installed in the vicinity of Corelli School, Anzac Road, Browns Bay, to cope with the increasing number of pedestrians / development in the village.  On 17 February 2015 the local board's TPLs were advised that following an initial assessment of the request, further detailed investigation and pedestrian counts are required. This investigation has been prioritised and programmed, with an expected completion date of early May 2015. Further investigation by Road Corridor Operations underway.

2

Beach Road, Browns Bay

Request for information about speed cushions installed on Beach Road, Browns Bay, and elsewhere.

At a meeting of the local board’s TPLs on 12 February 2015 members asked whether the speed cushions at the intersection of Beach/Bute Roads and Woodland Crescent, Browns Bay, were part of a trial at intersections/roundabouts and, if so, when the trial was finishing and what other locations the cushions were being trialled in. They also asked whether the speed cushions installed on Oaktree Avenue, Browns Bay, had been milled (to lower them) as promised, and whether these cushions could be installed on Silverdale Street, Silverdale, at the intersection of Hibiscus Coast Highway and Silverdale Street, to slow traffic entering the village area. Responses to the concerns raised in relation to the speed cushions in Beach Road and those on Oaktree Avenue were forwarded on 5 March 2015. On 11 March 2015 the local board's transport portfolio leads were advised in relation to the request for the installation of cushions on Silverdale Street of an alternative project underway investigating the installation of a raised table which will slow traffic and increase pedestrian safety. There are concerns that if traffic on the highway reduces speed prior to the Silverdale Street exit, it would result in an increase of nose to tail accidents on the highway, and that the installation of cushions would result in the removal of more car park spaces in Silverdale and also create difficulties for vehicles parking in Silverdale Street. No cushions will therefore be installed.

3

Jellicoe Road, Murrays Bay

Hot water weed control on Jellicoe Road, Murrays Bay, and in other North Shore areas.

Member Cooper asked on 11 February 2015 whether the hot water weed control treatment in areas such as Jellicoe Road, Murrays Bay, was being used as frequently as it once was as he hadn’t seen contractors in the area for some time. Comment was also made that in some areas of the North Shore the nutgrass prevalent in these areas is growing out from under the road seal so may be damaging the asset. Referred to Road Corridor Maintenance for investigation and response.

4

26 – 30 Anzac Road, Brown Bay

Request for pedestrian crossing facilities in the vicinity of 26 – 30 Anzac Road, Brown Bay.

On 17 February 2015 local board chairperson Julia Parfitt requested that an investigation be carried out into the provision of a pedestrian crossing facility in the vicinity of 26 – 30 Anzac Road, Browns Bay, where there is already a gym and cafes which attract a lot of people who are crossing the road between parked cars to reach their destinations. There is also a block of apartments being constructed in this area. On 20 February the local board's TPLs were advised that an initial assessment has indicated the need for further investigation, which has been prioritised and programmed, and the results are expected in mid-May 2015. At that time, the outcome of the investigation and response to the request will be provided. Under further investigation by Road Corridor Operations, with the results expected in mid-May 2015.

5

818 - 820 Whangaparaoa Road, Whangaparaoa.

Query as to the importance of the property at 818 - 820 Whangaparaoa Road, Whangaparaoa, to the widening of Whangaparaoa Road.

Cr Watson asked on 26 February 2015 about the importance of the properties at 818 - 820 Whangaparaoa Road to the potential widening of Whangaparaoa Road. On 5 March 2015 Cr Watson was advised that both properties had been disposed of and that they were not required for either the 4-laning of Whangaparaoa Road or the Penlink project (there are no plans for widening along this part of Whangaparaoa Road in the foreseeable future). On a high level the Auckland Plan Transport Network lists work at top end of Whangaparaoa Road (Red Beach - Hibiscus Coast Highway) in  decade 1; Penlink and associated widening on Whangaparaoa Road decade 2; and the potential further widening of Whangaparaoa Road in this location (818 and 820 Whangaparaoa Road) in decade 3. However, AT doesn't have any firm plans (layout) for this and the project is at least 30 years into the future.

6

Silverdale Street, Silverdale

Raised pedestrian crossing on Silverdale Street, Silverdale.

On 27 February 2015 Cr Watson asked for an update on a project to raise the pedestrian crossing on Silverdale Street, Silverdale, at its intersection with Agency Lane. On 5 March he was advised that the design for the raised pedestrian crossing is underway. Once this has been completed, AT will need to consult with affected parties on the loss of car parking as a result of the raising but,  providing there are no objections, staff are fairly confident that it will be constructed in 2015/2016.

7

Auckland region - motorway on-ramp signals

Query about the rationale behind the activation of motorway on-ramp signals in Auckland.

At a Hibiscus and Bays Local Board TPL meeting on 11 March 2015 Member Cooper asked whether there were any standing operating procedures used for the activation/de-activation of the stop/go signals on the motorway on ramps. His query results from the seemingly random way the lights are operated, particularly at the weekends when the motorways are generally free flowing. Referred to ATOC for response.

8

Hibiscus and Bays area - road resurfacing work

Road resurfacing work in the Hibiscus and Bays area.

At the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board TPL meeting on 11 March 2015 Member Cooper asked whether the contractors returned to the roads they have recently resurfaced to tidy the edges at the kerb line (these are untidy and look unfinished), why roads which don’t look as though they need any work done are resurfaced (West Hoe Road, Orewa, being an example of this), and requested that, during the course of resurfacing work where buses don’t stop at the usual stops, a sign be put on the bus stop advising patrons where the next available bus stop is located. Referred to Road Corridor Operations

9

Mairangi Bay Beach Reserve, Mairangi Bay

Watercare work around Mairangi Bay Beach Reserve, Mairangi Bay.

At the Hibiscus and Bays TPL meeting on 11 March 2015 the local board chairperson, Julia Parfitt asked if AT could require/encourage Watercare to use thrusting when laying its pipes rather than digging open the road, which causes much more disruption and issues with reinstatement. There have apparently been problems in Mairangi Bay roads with Watercare work so the local board would prefer that thrusting is used as a preference. A copy of a response prepared by AT's Road Corridor Access team was forwarded to the local board's TPLs on 20 March 2015 advising that, wherever possible, trenchless methods are required of all utility providers.

10

Beach Road, Torbay

Reinstatement of UFB areas on Beach Road, Torbay.

At the Hibiscus and Bays Transport Portfolio Leads meeting on 11 March Member Cooper advised that 2 – 3 areas on Beach Road near the Torbay shopping centre where Chorus undertook recent UFB work have not been properly reinstated, with some of the red textured areas being reinstated with black AC. Referred to Road Corridor Access.

11

Whangaparaoa Road, Whangaparaoa

Sign on Whangaparaoa Road, Whangaparaoa, facing the wrong way.

Member Fitzgerald advised on 18 March 2015 that a sign to Little Manly Beach on the approach to the sharp corner at 818/820 Whangaparaoa Road, Whangaparaoa, travelling east, had been turned so that it faces in the wrong direction, asking that this be remedied. The local board's TPLs were advised that the contractors had removed, cleaned and repositioned the sign on 20 March.

12

Deep Creek Road, Torbay

Request for NSAAT restrictions on Deep Creek Road, Torbay.

Member Cooper asked on 25 March 2015 for investigation into the installation of NSAAT restrictions outside 44 Deep Creek Road, where the owner of the property says there is a safety concern for drivers exiting/entering this property and the adjacent school property. Forwarded to Road Corridor Operations for investigation

13

Orewa General

‘Be Accessible' requests for Orewa Town Centre.

Chairperson of the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board, Julia Parfitt, asked that AT investigate and implement (where applicable) numerous requests made by ‘Be Accessible’, a group which has highlighted safety issues in and around Orewa. Referred to Road Corridor Delivery for investigation and response.

Purpose

1.       This report provides a summary of the feedback received through the Long-term Plan 2015 - 2025 (LTP) consultation relevant to the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board area.

2.       This feedback is informing the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board advocacy to the Budget Committee and will inform decisions that the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board make on their locally driven initiatives (LDI) budgets.

Executive summary

3.       The LTP proposals were released for public consultation in January 2015, with local engagement and Have Your Say events held through until 16 March 2015 to receive feedback.  Feedback was also received through written or online forms, email and through social media.

4.       In total, the Council received and processed 27,383 written submissions of which 3,554 were received from the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board area.  In addition 53 people attended a Have Your Say event in the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board area on 28 February 2015.

5.       This report provides a summary of the feedback received through the LTP consultation on proposals for the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board area.  It also summarises feedback on the regional proposals from people or organisations based in the Hibiscus and Bays area. 

6.       This feedback is informing the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board advocacy to the Budget Committee at discussions on 24, 28 and 29 April 2015.  These discussions are timed to inform the Budget Committee prior to them making decisions on the LTP on 7 and 8 May 2015.

7.       The feedback will also inform Hibiscus and Bays decisions required in order to finalise LDI and advocacy content for their Local Board Agreements 2015/2016.
