Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board

15 April 2015

 

 

Auckland Transport Monthly Update Report - April 2015

 

File No.: CP2015/05509

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       This report provides an update on local transport matters over the last month for the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board (MOLB).

Executive Summary

2.       This report contains a general monthly update on transport matters both locally and from across Auckland and a list of issues currently being addressed by Auckland Transport for the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board receive the Auckland Transport Monthly Update Report – April 2015.

 

 

Reporting Back on Resolutions

 

4.       Resolution Number:  MO/2014/176

 

a)      Requests that the removal of the fencing in the Mangere Town Centre car park, near the Citizen’s Advice Bureau is resolved.

 

5.       During the last reporting period the Manager Property reported that his team has finished a records search of all available Council records and is entering into negotiations with the property owner who owns the fence. Negotiations are progressing slowly because the property owner spends a lot of time overseas.  Further updates will be provided as the matter progresses.

 

6.       Getting the signs and markings at the rear of entrance refreshed is taking longer than expected as there is some debate over the legal status of the land. The Mangere Town Centre has a very unusual mix of car park and ‘legal road’ within its car park. The status of these car parks has been questioned and at the time this report was written an answer had not been confirmed and until this is finished the car parks can’t be re-marked. Auckland Transport expects to be able to make a verbal report at this month’s meeting.

 

Discussion

 

Auckland Transport Information Workshops for Local Boards

 

7.       Transport matters are evolving quickly at this time and Auckland Transport has number of key issues that it wants to discuss with Local Boards including:

· The progress of integrated ticketing for public transport;

· Proposed changes to the Regional Public Transport Plan;

· The proposed Berm Planting Policy;

· The Parking Strategy; and

· Proposed changes to regional signage.

 

8.       Auckland Transport is setting up meetings with all Local Boards at which these issues (or those that are relevant to the particular Local Board) can be discussed in detail.

 

9.       Auckland Transport has scheduled a meeting with this local board on 27 May 2015.

 

SMART Study

 

10.     During this reporting period the SMART Study has progressed.  The possibility of utilising light rail instead of heavy rail to provide a link from the city to the airport is being investigated. Light rail is considerably less expensive and has a range of other benefits that may make it a better option. 

 

11.     Auckland Transport conducted two briefings for the Transport Portfolio Leaders during March 2015. Details are included in Attachment A.

 

Road Disruptions in Mangere

 

12      At the MOLB’s February 2015 meeting disruptions to traffic movement and public transport created by Watercare’s Hunua No 4 project were raised by members and a detailed report on these issues was provided to the Local Board.

 

13.     During this reporting period other issues in the local area have been raised by Local Board Members on behalf of the community. Auckland Transport works closely with both New Zealand Transport Agency (who are currently working on SH 20) and Watercare (who are delivering the Hunua No 4 project) to authorise traffic management plans to try and minimise disruptions.

 

14.     When responding to issues raised by the local board on behalf of the local community a simple process is followed. The complaint is passed to Auckland Transport auditors. The auditors visit the site and investigate the situation. If problems are confirmed the auditors raise them with the contractors onsite and (if required) can also liaise directly with Watercare or New Zealand Transport Agency.

 

East - West Study

 

15.     The East - West Study is a project to analyse transport routes between SH20 and SH1 and develop solutions for managing an anticipated increase in road freight of 60%, through that corridor in the next 30 years. In particular, the objective will be to permit better connectivity for the industrial areas of Onehunga-Southdown, East Tamaki-Highbrook, the Airport, Wiri and southern Mt Wellington.

 

16.     On 23 March 2015 the MOLB’s Transport Portfolio Leaders were briefed on the results of public consultation and the proposed plan that is looking at improving two key areas:

· Freight movements east-west via Onehunga; and

· Public transport linkages to and from Sylvia Park, Otahuhu, Mangere and the Airport. 

 

17.     From the MOLB area’s perspective the most important of these areas is the new public transport corridor that will link Sylvia Park, Otahuhu, Mangere and the Airport.  The corridor is called Route 32 and is being funded mostly by the New Zealand Transport Agency although Auckland Transport is contributing to the project.  Route 32 plans include upgrading existing roads and intersections to make them easier for buses to use and upgrading key interchanges so that people are able to connect easily with other buses or trains at key locations like Otahuhu, Mangere and Sylvia Park. The project is at a very early stage and details are not confirmed but the MOLB will be kept well-informed of progress.

 

 

Future Streets

 

18.     ‘Future Streets’ is a safety and ‘liveability’ programme that involves redesigning and modifying residential streets to reduce the number of heavy vehicles, slow traffic down and improve walking and cycling routes. Auckland Transport is intending to run the first trial of the ’Future Streets’ programme in Mangere.

 

19.     Both the New Zealand Transport Agency and the MOLB have agreed to help fund the project. Auckland Transport will finalise its commitment at the completion of the Long Term Plan process.     

 

20.     This month detailed design started. The project was originally planned to be delivered this summer. Subsequently the date shifted to May 2015 will now be delayed further.

 

21.     Future Streets is a complicated multi-agency project and finalizing details of the project’s scope between the stakeholders took longer than expected. Detailed design is now underway and will take some time so delivery of elements of the project in May 2015 is no longer possible. The project manager is currently scheduling a time to brief the Transport Portfolio Leader and the MOLB on the project and the new timeline. 

 

Otahuhu Bus and Rail Interchange Upgrade

 

22.     The Otahuhu Bus and Rail Interchange is being re-developed and upgraded.

 

23      The project is moving forwards and ‘enabling works’ continue. The Titi Street Bridge has been        removed and ‘pre-loading’ (piling spoil on the work site to compress the ground and force water out of the substrate) is currently taking place.

 

24.     The main part of the station upgrade is planned to start by the middle of 2015 and providing the project retains it high priority and that the Long Term Plan delivers sufficient budget it is planned to be completed by the end of 2015. Again it needs to be noted that although this is an important project, all projects are reviewed during the Long Term Plan consultation and until this process is complete timeframes for delivery may change.

 

Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board Transport Capital Fund

 

25.     Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board has a total pool of approx. $1,971,770 available in this electoral term to spend on transport projects.

 

26.     In its first electoral term the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board requested a number of projects and the progress of these projects, as well as the six projects for this electoral term are summarised in Attachment B. 

 

27.     As discussed above the ‘Future Streets’ project in Mangere Town Centre has encountered  difficulties and progress has been slowed down. Auckland Transport was expecting the first parts   of this project to start being built this summer. Unfortunately this is not going to be the case. 

 

28.     A briefing with the Transport Portfolio Leaders is currently being arranged to brief them on the delay and the new timeline.  The MOLB does not need to be concerned about the parts that they are funding or about the overall project. The issue not threatening the overall project it is a delay caused by technical discussions taking longer than expected.

 

29.     Planning for the work in the car park linking Mason and Station Roads in Otahuhu is well underway. Late last year initial concepts were shown to the public an ‘Otahuhu Linkages’ project open day.  The next step is detailed design which is started last month and the project manager is expecting to be able to brief the MOLB soon.

 

30.     The MOLB has requested that the Bader Drive / Idlewild Intersection be re-investigated because there are concerns in the community about safety at this intersection. The MOLB is concerned that the layout delivered by Auckland Transport is contributing to poor driver behaviour and a drop in safety at this intersection.  This matter has been discussed with the Manager Road Corridor Operations Central and South who has tasked members of their team to re-investigate the intersection. When the investigation is complete they will report back to the MOLB.

 

Issues

31.     A list of specific transport issues that the MOLB has asked Auckland Transport to investigate is included as Attachment C.

Summary of Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board Transport Capital Fund Projects

2013-16 Electoral Term

Projects Submitted

Description

Current Status

Mangere –East Town Centre Traffic Calming

The aim of this project is to improve ease of access to the Mangere-East Town Centre for people on foot. 

Project completed

 

Waddon-Windrush Walk/Cycleway

The walkway is narrow, poorly lit and has become a high crime area and widening the walkway is seen as a solution that will make the area safer with regards to crime.

The Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board has decided to use its Local Board Transport Capital Fund to deliver the project.

Auckland Transport has reported back a Rough Order of Cost for the project of approx. $ 173,366

The project will include widening the pathway, improving lighting and re-devloping the area in the manner illustrated to make more attractive and safer from crime.

Detailed design is underway and public consultation took place between 7-21 November 2014.

In December 2014 - January 2015 the concept plan was presented to the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board’s Transport Representatives and permission granted to move to detailed design.

We were  aiming to start delivering elements of the project this summer but  difficulties with defining the project scope have delayed the start of detailed design. 

The new timeline is currently being established and the project manager is setting up a meeting with the Transport Portfolio Leaders to brief them.

Future Streets Walking and Cycling Circuit  Windrush-Mascot

Constructing a iconic fitroute that runs from Windrush Close to Mascot Road.

Auckland Transport has provided a Rough Order of $ 346,000 for delivery of this project. 

At the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board’s 17 September 2014 meeting the Board authorized Auckland Transport to complete design and immediately start construction providing the project’s Final Cost was within the Rough Order of Cost provided.

The new timeline is currently being established and the project manager is setting up a meeting with the Transport Portfolio Leaders to brief them.

 

Station Rd (from Mason Ave to Great Sth Rd)

The overall aim is to upgrade this section of Station Road in accordance with urban design recommendations from the Otahuhu Linkages & Public Realm Initiative and to make it fit with work that is currently funded on the road. 

 

This would include  mproved footpaths with modern attractiove street furnitureand there is the opportunity to provide cycle lanes as well.

The reconfiguration will link with other work that is planned on Station Road and will improve the carriageway and general traffic management.

 

This project has been investigated and was not supported by the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board.

 

 

 

Mason Ave / Station Rd Carpark  – Pedestrian Link

Develop a footpath link from Mason Ave & Station Rd through the car park

This will provide better access and a natural pathway from Station Road to the the  Mason Ave pedestrian  crossing and the new upgraded recreatiosn centre.

The proposal also include high standards of lighting, lots of decorative planting and other landscape improvements.

Another key feature will be signage directing people using the walkway to areas of interest like the recreations centre and bus stops.

 

 

Auckland Transport has provide a Rough Order of $ 200,000 for delivery of this project. 

At the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board’s 17 September 2014 meeting the Board authorized Auckland Transport to complete design and immediately start construction providing the project’s Final Cost was within the Rough Order of Cost provided.

Design work is underway and initial concepts discussed with the public at the ‘Otahuhu Linkages’ open day held on 27 November 2014.

The project manager is currently working up the detailed design and is ready to brief the Transport Portfolio Leaders.

Description

Current Status

Improving Bus Stops

The Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board has identified 18 bus stops that will improve by building shelters at them. The Board authorised $308,000 from the Local Board Transport Capital Fund.

At this time only the upgrade of the stop at 3 Church Street remains to be completed. The plan for this bus shelter has a number of issues that needed to be checked and the shelter is now being consulted with effected residents.

This process is currently underway.

Bader Drive, Idlewild Road  Intersection

This project involves re-developing the Bader Drive, Idlewild Road intersection to make it safer.

This intersection has now been modified to make it safer and allow better traffic flow.

Improving Speed Limit Signage on Favona Road, Mahunga Drive, Coronation Road and Walmsley Road

 

This project has been completed and the signs have been installed.

 

Otahuhu Main Street Poles and Luminaires

This project involves upgrading the lighting in the Otahuhu Town Centre.

This project has been completed and the new light poles and lights installed.

 

Improving Signage from SH1 and SH20 to the Mangere and Otahuhu Town Centres

 

 

This project involves funding the installation of information signs that direct drivers from the motorway to the Otahuhu Town Centre. At the August Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board meeting release of $75,000 from the Local Board’s Transport Capital Fund was authorised.

This project has been completed.

 

Mangere Town Centre Bus Stop

This proposed project involves the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board paying for development of a concept plan for this site as prelude to potentially financing a redevelopment of this facility.

The bus stop was cleaned up and re-painted.

Using Local Board Transport Capital Funds to support this project has been investigated and was not able to be supported.

The decision in September 2014 to allocate the majority of the available funds to ‘Future Streets’ and upgrading the Otahuhu Car Park means that there is no money available for allocation to this project.

Commitments made in the previous electoral term:

Bus Shelter Upgrades                                                                                                        $ 308,000

Otahuhu Lighting Upgrade                                                                                                 $ 160,000

Signs in Mahunga Drive                                                                                                         $ 2,000

Bader/Idlewild Intersection Remodelling                                                                              $ 72,000

Directional Signage SH 1 – Otahuhu and SH 20 – Mangere Town Centre                          $ 75,000

Description

Current Status

Massey Road Pedestrian Over-bridge

This project involves building a pedestrian over bridge on Massey Road in the Mangere East Town Centre. 

Investigated and reported back on at the January 2013 Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board meeting.

 

Bus stop at the rear of the Mangere Town Centre

This project involves establishing a parking area for the courtesy bus that stops at the Mangere-Town Centre.

Investigated and reported back on at the January 2013 Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board meeting.

Auckland Transport delivered the bus stop in April 2014

Traffic calming in Harania Avenue, Dewhurst Road and Massey Road

 

Investigated and reported back on at the April 2013 Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board meeting.

Bader Drive / Orly Road Roundabout

This project involves re-developing the Bader Drive, Orly Road intersection to make it efficient.

Investigated and reported back on at the January 2013 Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board meeting.

 

Signalisation of the Favona Road and Harania Road Intersection

 

The Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board has already requested that speed calming measures be investigated on Harania Road.

This request was turned down because of the effect on public transport of speed bumps or other traffic calming measures.

The Board is still concerned about speed and safety in this road and would like signalisation of the Favona/Harania Intersection investigated.

 

This project has been investigated and the results were reported back at the April 2014 Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board Meeting.    

The Auckland Transport was asked to re-investigate the request for a signals at this intersection. Auckland Transport’s senior engineer met with the Chair and another elected member onsite and the project and its implications were discussed in detail.  The engineer discussed Auckland Transport’s concnerns about signals making the turn out of Harania eaiser and therefore ‘rat –running’ through the street more attractive.

A result of the conversation was that in order to to improve driver visibility at the intersection Auckland Transport proposes to install additional parking restrictions (shown in the map below).

 

Traffic calming in Harania Road was also re-assessed but the road’s importance as a bus route means that putting in humps or other traffic calming devices would effect public transport so is not an appropriate solution.

Issues Report

Issue Title

Description

Action

Oruarangi Speed Limit

The Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board has requested that the speed limit on Oruarangi Road be lowered from 100kmph to 80kmph.

This is to improve pedestrian safety.

Speed counts are finished and the Auckland Transport, NZ Police and New Zealand Transport Agency have agreed to lower the speed on this road from 100kmph to 80kmph.

The Transport Portfolio Leader has requested that the speed be reduced further to 50kmph.

This request has been forwarded for consideration.

Fencing in the Mangere Town Centre car park near the CAB.

 

A chain-link fence in this area creates an obstruction and has become an area from rubbish dumping.

 

This issue still continues to be worked on by Auckland Transport.

 

The Property Team committed to getting this issue resolved and are working with Council  and have completed their records search to confirm details of the original consent that was issued by the legacy Council.

Currently they are negotiating with the owner of the fence, This is taking time because the owner travel extensively.

 

Changing the layout the car parks at the rear of the Mangere Library

 

It has been pointed out that when the fence is removed at the rear of the Mangere Library the opportunity exists to remodel the parking in this area so there is more and safer parking in the area,

 

Auckland Transport’s Manager Property (who is responsible for the overall management of the car park) met with representatives of the Mangere-Othauhu Local Board and discussed the situation with the fence and the car park spaces.

The Manager of Property Team discussed the Local Board and CAB car parks and is planning to -organise and refurbish them.

Unfortunately this is taking longer than expected because the Mangere Town Centre’s car park is very unusual having areas that are ‘legal road’ interspersed with areas of car park.  Sorting out the status or these car parks and therefore who is responsible for them is taking time.

 

‘No Parking’ signs and markings at the rear of the Local Board Office

It has been requested that the ‘No Parking’ signage at the rear of the Local Board office is upgraded to make it more visible.

 

Auckland Transport’s Manager Property (who is responsible for the overall management of the car park) met with representatives of the Mangere-Othauhu Local Board and discussed the situation with the fence and the car park spaces. The Manager of Property Team discussed the Local Board and CAB car parks and is planning to re-organise and refurbish them.

 

Nuisance motorcyclists in parks

The issue of motorcyclists engaging in anti-social behaviour in parks has been raised with Auckland Transport.

Although parks are outside of Auckland Transport’s area of responsibility details for NZTA were provided to address access to parks from NZTA walkways and the liaison was conducted with the NZ Police who have provided a point of contact to assist the Local Board to addres this issue.

Mangere Town Centre Ambassador Programme Funding

 

File No.: CP2015/02302

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       This report outlines the funding shortfall the Mangere Town Centre BID Inc. faces operating its Town Centre Ambassador Programme, and recommends that the local board contribute to the shortfall as a way of increasing public safety in the Mangere Town Centre.

Executive Summary

2.       The town centre ambassador programme is a joint venture between Work and Income (WI) and local business associations. The programme is subsidised by WI and aims to give long term beneficiaries an opportunity to gain skills that will help them get back into the workforce. Ambassadors help to provide security and improve the perception of safety.

3.       The shortfall for Mangere Town Centre BID Inc. to operate the scheme is approximately $36,000 per annum, based on six ambassadors per intake.

 

Recommendation

That the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board:

a)      Contribute $32,000 (from the CCTV and town centre safety initiatives budget) to the Mangere Town Centre BID Inc. towards the running costs of the Mangere Work and Income Ambassador Programme.

 

Discussion

4.       The town centre ambassador programme is a joint venture between WI and local business associations. The programme is subsidised by WI and aims to give long-term beneficiaries an opportunity to gain skills that will help them get back into the workforce. WI provide free training for all new recruits on the ambassador programme. Town centres can employ up to six ambassadors each for 30 hours a week.

5.       The ambassador programme is viewed as an effective way to improve the perception of safety in town centres. Because of this, the programme also helps to improve patronage levels to local businesses.

6.       Recent changes in employment legislation have led to additional expenses in both the minimum wage and Kiwi Saver. An annual shortfall of approximately $36,000 per town centre (based on six ambassadors) has to be met by the business association in order to meet their obligations as employers. Currently the business associations have limited options with regard to meeting these costs.

7.       Ambassador programmes operate in a number of southern local board areas, and have previously received council funding on an as-needed basis. The Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board has discussed issues of public safety and specifically the ambassador programme at a number of workshops in 2014, and has generally been supportive.

8.       The revitalisation of the town centres is a priority for the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board, and the ambassador programmes are considered to contribute towards this priority. Contributing to the programme also preserves job opportunities for local beneficiaries to return to the workforce, which would not be available if the programme were unable to continue.

9.       The local board may wish to assist the Mangere Town Centre BID Inc. to meet its shortfall in ambassador programme staff costs. Sufficient funding is available in the local board’s CCTV and town centre safety initiatives budget to support a contribution of $32,000. 

Consideration

Local Board Views

10.     At workshops in 2014, the local board indicated support for the ambassador programme.

Maori Impact Statement

11.     While this project is not specifically targeting Maori, Maori are likely to benefit alongside other groups in the community both in terms of employment opportunities and improved safety of town centres.

General

12.       The decision sought does not invoke the Auckland Council Significance Policy.

Implementation

13.     If the local board resolves to allocate funding to the ambassador programme, staff will action the resolution immediately to enable the ambassador programme to continue effectively. These initiatives will no doubt continue to contribute significantly to the improvement of safety in town centres across the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board area.

7.       Further potential projects have been identified and investigated.  Applications from (Tui Tonga Canoe Club Inc. and Portage Crossing Traditional Canoeing and Sailing Association) and (Manukau Outriggers Whare Nui Trust and Manukau Urban Maori Authority) have been considered for this report.

 

 

 

Recommendation/s

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      Allocate Tui Tonga Canoe Club Inc. $39,500 towards 2, 20ft containers; 2 solar lights; water connection; picture perforated panels for fence and containers; fence enclosure; 3 waka cradles on 15R Waterfront Reserve out of the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board Facility Partnership Fund 2014/2015.

 

 

Discussion

8.       Four groups submitted an expression of interest in December 2014.  These groups were identified as having previously made enquiries for Facility Partnership Funding in the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board area being;

·    Manukau Outriggers Canoeing Whare Nui Trust;

·    Portage Crossing Waka Ama Club Inc.

·    Tui Tonga Waka Ama Club Inc. 

·    Mangere East Rugby League Football Club Inc. withdrew their expression of interest on 23 March 2015 as they were not ready to proceed with their project.

9.       Through the expressions of interest process, groups that had more fully formed projects were considered for potential funding and could provide indicative project costings. Details of the community group projects are:

(i)       Manukau Outriggers Canoeing Whare Nui Trust and Manukau Urban Maori Authority

Manukau Outriggers Canoeing Whare Nui Trust and Manukau Urban Maori Authority for $57,000 towards professional services including; preliminary design; bond (required at developed design stage); developed design; construction documents; consultation; site visits; design changes; BIM modelled/scheduled project (building information memorandum) for a new clubroom on Waterfront Reserve.

The concept for the new Manukau Outriggers Canoeing Whare Nui Trust clubrooms was presented to the local board on 1 October 2014.

The total cost of the project is $72,000.  The Club has proposed funding sources to meet the project costs from the following organisations: Four Winds Foundation $10,000; Wharenui Trust $2,500 and MUMA (Manukau Urban Maori Authority) $2,500.

The project includes:

1.   Preliminary design $10,000

2.   Bond $2,000

3.   Developed design $25,000

4.   Construction documents $30,000

5.   Consultations (approximately $250.00)

6.   Site visits (approximately $250.00)

7.   Design changes (after developed design stage, $50 per hour)

8.   BIM Modelled/scheduled project $5,000

 

 

(ii)    Tui Tonga Canoe Club Inc. and Portage Crossing Traditional Canoeing and Sailing Association

This is a joint project with Tui Tonga Canoe Club Inc. and Portage Crossing Traditional Canoeing and Sailing Association. The clubs have confirmed the lead applicant is Tui Tonga Canoe Club Inc. because this club has the capacity to expedite a funding grant effectively.

The clubs have suggested some options to create a safe and secure environment to store the water safety equipment, trolleys and paddles in two 20ft containers; 2 solar lights; water connection to wash the outrigger canoes; picture perforated panels for fence and containers; 160 linear metre fence and storage of the outrigger canoes on 3 cradles to take up less space on the park.

Attached is a concept sketch for the Mangere Bridge waka-ama storage showing a general layout plan which allows for storage and maneuvering space while minimising the overall impact on the park.  Also a range of potential decorative treatments which could be applied to the basic security fence and containers.  This will provide an idea of the direction the clubs are heading towards integrating this facility into the landscape and provide safety against the on-going vandalism to the clubs equipment.

This project will trigger the requirement for land owner approval and a community lease.  These processes will be entered into once funding has been secured for one, or all of the options below.

Note: a licence to occupy could be for lights only as this does not exclude public access.  A lease on the other hand would apply to a fenced-off enclosure including all facilities within that space that can be exclusive to the clubs.  Both options are able to be used at this site.

 

The total cost of the project is estimated at approximately $39,500 towards: 

1.   2 x 20ft containers = $6,000

2.   2 x solar lights @ $3,500 = $7,000

3.   Water connection $10,000

4.   Picture perforated panels @$500 per m2 for fence/containers = $5,000

5.   Fence enclosure @ $100 x160 linear metres $7,000

6.   3 x waka cradles @ $1,500 = $4,500

 

Local Board Priorities

10.     The below priorities we identified in the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board Plan 2014/2015:

·  Attractive, accessible and safe cycleways and walkways: Completion of the Peninsula Park walkway in Mangere

·  Increased multi-use community and recreational facilities: Assess options for a multi-use community facility in Mangere East.

·  Well-maintained parks and reserves equipped for sports and all standards of play: Improve sports fields and lighting on Walter Massey, Centre, Williams and Moyle Parks $2m.

·    Collaborate with sports clubs and other recreational groups to ensure we are making best use of our existing facilities, and help provide specialist skills such as financial management and planning to support these groups.

 

11.     Council staff considers that the above projects meet some of the Local Board’s identified priorities.  It is recommended that the Tui Tonga Canoe Club Inc. and Portage Crossing Traditional Canoeing and Sailing Association joint project is realistic and can be completed within a reasonable timeframe. 

12.     The Manukau Outriggers Whare Nui Trust and Manukau Urban Maori Authority project has faced challenges particularly with obtaining funding for the building phase of the project.  Additionally the accessibility from the proposed site to the all-tide ramp to launch waka is a considerable distance away and likely to cause problems.  For these reasons support for this application is not recommended.

Consideration

Local board views and implications

13.     A workshop was held with the Local Board on 1 October 2014 to discuss the funding applications for the 2014/2015 financial year and decisions were made on 19 November 2014.

14.     A workshop was held with the Local Board on 24 February 2015 to ratify the projects to be considered in this report.

15.     The recommendations in this report fall within the Local Board’s delegated authority.

16.     The decisions sought by this report do not trigger the Auckland Council Significance Policy.

Māori impact statement

17.     The Facility Partnership Fund assists with the development of accessible multi-use community facilities to increase community participation, including the potential to increased community participation for Māori.  No particular negative implications for Māori community or Māori stakeholders have been identified as arising from this report.  Given the demographic make-up of the local board area and the nature of the some projects for which funding is requested it is likely Māori will benefit from these.

Implementation

18.     A standard Council funding agreement will be developed for any successful applicants and progress towards agreed project outcomes monitored throughout the project.

19.     Further quotations would be required prior to any funding agreements being entered into and completed facility partnership fund application.

Purpose

1.       The purpose of the report is to present the Mangere-Otahuhu Community Grants Programme 2015/2016 for adoption.

Executive Summary

2.       The new Auckland Council Community Grants Policy was adopted in December 2014. This policy guides the allocation of local, multi-board and regional grants to groups and organisations delivering projects, activities and services that benefit Aucklanders.

3.       The Community Grants Policy supports each local board to adopt their own local grants programme to be attached to the policy as an appendix.

4.       This report presents the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board Community Grants Programme 2015/2016 for adoption (see attachment A).

 

Recommendation/s

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      Adopt the Mangere-Otahuhu Community Grants Programme 2015/2016 (Attachment A).

 

 

Comments

5.       The new Community Grants Policy was adopted in December 2014 and implementation will commence on 1 July 2015.

6.       The policy supports each local board to develop a Community Grants Programme for 2015/2016. This local board grants programme will guide community groups and individuals when making applications to the local board.

7.       The local board community grants programme can include:

·    outcomes as identified in the local board plan

·    specific local board funding priorities

·    budget allocated to the grants programme

·    which grant types will operate locally, the number of funding rounds and when these will open and close

·    any additional criteria or exclusions that will apply

·    an indication of participation in multi-board funding

·    other factors the local board consider to be significant to their decision-making

8.       An implementation plan is underway to support an integrated and simplified approach to grants programme administration. Funding staff from different departments are working together to ensure a co-ordinated approach, expected to benefit applicants and streamline internal processes.

9.       A Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board guide has been developed to accompany the new grants programme  to support the community to apply for local board grants. The guide includes a full explanation of the Mangere-Otahuhu grants programme, a definition of terms, the local board criteria and frequently asked questions (see attachment B and C).

10.     Once the local board community grants programme has been adopted, the types of grants, funding rounds, criteria and eligibility with be advertised through an integrated communication and marketing approach which includes utilising the local board channels.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

11.     The Community Grants Programme has been developed by the local board to set the direction of their grants programme. This programme can be reviewed on an annual basis.

Māori impact statement

12.     All grant programmes should respond to Auckland Council’s commitment to improving Maori wellbeing by providing grants to organisations delivering positive outcomes for Maori.

Implementation

13.     An implementation plan is underway and the local board grants programme will be locally advertised through the local board and council channels. Targeted advertising and promotion will be developed for target populations, including migrant and refugee groups, disability groups, Maori and iwi organisations.

Approval of a community lease for multiple premises to Auckland Kindergarten Association

 

File No.: CP2015/04813

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       This report seeks Albert-Eden, Puketepapa, Waitemata, Maungakiekie-Tamaki, Kaipatiki, Devonport-Takapuna, Rodney, Mangere-Otahuhu, Howick, Otara-Papatoetoe, Henderson-Massey, Waitakere Ranges and Whau Local Boards approval for a community lease for multiple premises to Auckland Kindergarten Association.  A report will go to each Local Board.

Executive Summary

2.       The Auckland Kindergarten Association (the Association) was incorporated under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957 on 28 February 1911. The Association’s stated objectives are:

·    providing facilities for and undertaking early childhood education and care

·    promoting and encouraging early childhood education and care within New Zealand

3.       The Association has 39 community leases with Auckland Council where the Association owns the building. These individual community leases have varying terms and conditions, commencement and end dates. A community lease for multiple premises would align the 39 community leases with the same terms and conditions, commencement and end dates.  The benefits to Auckland Council and the Association are:

·    Consistency of management of the leases with the same terms and conditions

·    One report per annum on community outcomes

·    Streamlined management of the next right of renewal process

·    Enable a move from an operational relationship to a more strategic focus

4.       The Auckland Kindergarten Association Schedule of Premises and Site Plans (Attachment A) lists the 39 premises separated into local board areas. Each local board is asked to approve the new community leases for the premises from their area and for which site plans are included.

5.       This report recommends the granting of a new community lease for multiple premises to Auckland Kindergarten Association for 10 years commencing 1 April 2015 with one 10-year right of renewal. This is the recommended term in the Auckland Council Community Occupancy Guidelines July 2012 where the group owns the building.

6.       A Community Outcomes Plan will be an attachment to the lease and reported on by the Association (Attachment B).

 

Recommendation/s

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      Approves the surrender of all current and expired Auckland Kindergarten Association leases from their local board area as specified in the Auckland Kindergarten Association Schedule of Premises and Site Plans (Attachment A) subject to the granting of a new community lease;

b)      Approves a new community lease to Auckland Kindergarten Association for Otahuhu Central Kindergarten, Sturges Park, Fort Richard Road, details specified in Attachment A, subject to the following terms and conditions:

i)        Term – 10 years commencing 1 April 2015 with one 10-year right of renewal;

ii)       Rent - $1.00 plus GST per annum if requested;

iii)      The Auckland Kindergarten Association Community Outcomes Plan as approved be attached to the lease document (Attachment B);

iv)      All other terms and conditions in accordance with the Auckland Council Community Occupancy Guidelines July 2012.

 

Comments

7.       The Association has 39 community leases with Auckland Council across the region where the Association owns the building. These individual community leases have varying terms and conditions, commencement and end dates which can be complicated to manage for both parties. The Association approached Auckland Council to find an agreed solution. A community lease for multiple premises would align the 39 community leases with the same terms and conditions, commencement and end dates.

8.       A community lease for multiple premises will benefit both Auckland Council and the Association for the following reasons:

·    Consistency of management of the leases with the same terms and conditions

·    One report per annum on community outcomes

·    Streamlined management of the next right of renewal process

·    Enable a move from an operational relationship to a more strategic focus

9.       This will be the first community lease for multiple premises for Auckland Council.  Council staff can see benefits for other groups with multiple premises.

10.     Auckland Council legal advice recommends that the Association surrender their existing and expired leases as listed in Attachment A so that when a new community lease is approved it will commence from 1 April 2015.

11.     Attachment A lists the 39 premises separated into local board areas. Each local board is asked to approve the new community leases for the premises from their area.

12.     The activity of the Association is of a local purpose nature rather than recreation. There are three sites where the land is not classified as local purpose as set out in Attachment A.  The affected boards are asked to approve a lease under Section 73(3) of the Reserves Act 1977. Prior to granting the lease, public advertising of Council’s intention is required under Section 73(4) of the Reserves Act 1977 and approval from the Minister of Conservation or their delegate if required. Iwi consultation pursuant to Section 4 of the Conservation Act 1987 is required on two sites where they are not contemplated in a Reserve Management Plan. Council staff will consider reclassifying the kindergartens lease area from recreation reserve to local purpose (community buildings) reserve in accordance with the Reserves Act 1977.

13.     Where the land is an unclassified recreation reserve the affected boards are asked to support the classification of four reserves as set out in Attachment A as a local purpose (community buildings) reserve pursuant to Section 16 (2A) and Section 14 of the Reserves Act 1977, and recommends approval by the Parks, Recreation and Sport Committee.

14.     The Association was incorporated under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957 on 28 February 1911. The association’s objectives are:

·    providing facilities for and undertaking early childhood education and care within New Zealand

·    promoting and encouraging early childhood education and care.

15.     Council staff has sought input from relevant Council departments.

16.     A Community Outcomes Plan as approved will be an attachment to the lease and reported on annually by the Association.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

17.     The recommendations within this report fall within the Local Board’s allocated authority relating to local, recreation, sport and community facilities.

18.     A portfolio meeting has been held with each local board and they were presented with the proposal for the lease for multiple premises.

Māori impact statement

19.     The Association has long standing community leases on the properties.  Maori are benefactors as users of the services and it is considered the granting of a new community lease for multiple premises will not have any adverse impact for Maori.

Implementation

20.     The recommendations within this report do not trigger the Auckland Council Significance Policy.

Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board Community Fees and Charges - July to Dec 2014

 

File No.: CP2015/04994

 

  

 

 

Purpose

1.       To present the usage and revenue data from community facilities within the local board area for the period 1 July to 31 December 2014 and to highlight any significant impact of the new fees and charges that were introduced on 1 July 2014.

2.       To recommend community facilities fees and charges for the 2015/2016 year.

Executive Summary

3.       On 4 March 2015, members of the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board met at a workshop to consider the impact of the new fees and charges introduced on 1 July 2014. Please refer to Attachment A for the fee schedule for 2014/2015.

4.       The council’s ‘Hire Fee Framework – For Hire of Auckland Council’s Community Facilities’ (the framework) was developed over a two-year period from 2012-2014 and was based on good practice principles. All local boards adopted the framework, although six chose to vary from the recommended fees and charges. These recommended fees and charges, which would help ensure fairness and transparency for all users, were introduced for all council-managed facilities in the other local board areas across the region on 1 July 2014.

5.       In the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board area there are four council-managed community facilities. These are the Mangere Community House, Mangere Central Community Hall, Mangere Old School Hall and Mangere War Memorial Hall. After 1 July, the council received enquiries from eight of the 24 regular hirers across the three latter venues. These eight accepted a transition arrangement until the end of September 2014. While there were no cancellations at these three venues, there were a small number of cancellations (out of the 12 regular hirers) at the Mangere Community House, which were small church groups which did not qualify for a priority rate. For the full list of regular hirers, please refer to Attachment B.

6.       For a table of fees and charges per venue for the July to December period, please refer to the summary in Attachment C. Attachment D shows the number of sessions booked by activity type.

7.       The table below summarises the combined activity of the facilities for the July to December six-month period. Please note that some figures are reported as percentage points (pp), while others are shown as a percentage (%). Please refer to the glossary of terms (Attachment E) for more information on percentage points.

 

Utilisation

Visitors

Revenue

-16 pp

+3,734 (+4.7%)

   +$24,719 (+49%)

 

8.       Over the period 1 July to 31 December 2014, utilisation (booked hours divided by 10 available hours per day) of the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board community facilities decreased by 16 percentage points (pp). Over the same period, visitor numbers increased slightly from 79,215 to 82,949 (+4.7%). This could be due to a change in customer type to larger groups or a number of large community events that attract many participants.

9.       Revenue increased by $24,719, which is nearly 50 per cent more when compared with the same period last year. This is possible by a change in customer type to those paying a higher fee or an increase in the fees paid by customers, as well as a tighter charging of cancellation fees.

 

10.     Mitigating factors

In July 2014, a new process was introduced to book the available spaces in most of the council-managed community facilities across the region and to ensure the cancellation charge was applied where appropriate. This has greatly helped to record more accurate utilisation and visitor numbers than in previous years.

 

11.     For the 2014/2015 financial year, revenue from community facilities is expected to increase for the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board. This could help contribute to the maintenance of these facilities and reflects the good practice principles imbedded in the framework, including fairness to all users.

 

 

Recommendation/s

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      Agrees that the 2014/2015 community facilities hire fees will remain, uninflated, for the 2015/2016 year, as per Attachment A and will apply to all new and existing hirers using the facilities.

b)      Requests council staff to provide regular updates on the impact of the hire fees and the performance of council-managed community facilities as part of the quarterly reports.

 

 

Comments

12.     The framework was developed over a two-year period from 2012-2014 and acknowledged that ‘access to safe, affordable places for people to pursue their interests provides many benefits to the wider community…’ The framework included these good practice principles: good public management, lawfulness, accountable, transparent (openness), value for money, integrity and fairness.

13.     When the framework was prepared, it took account of the wide range of legacy hire arrangements that were recorded or published. All local boards adopted the framework, although six chose to vary from the recommended fees and charges. When the new framework was implemented, it became clear that across some local boards there were a large number of exceptions to the published hire rates that had not been recorded in the past or visible to the organisation. This meant that there were a number of customer enquiries relating to the new fee structure. Customers facing significant price increases were allowed transition rates until the end of September 2014.

14.     In April 2014, the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board resolved to adopt the new fees and charges for the hire of council-owned community venues (Resolution number MO/2014/71). Alongside this, the activity types eligible for discounts were confirmed

15.     Members of the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board met for a workshop on 4 March 2015 to consider the impact of the new fees and charges introduced on 1 July 2014. Please refer to Attachment A for the fee schedule for 2014/2015.

16.     It was the view of members at this workshop that all activity at the Mangere Community House (except activity with a religious purpose) be given the local priority discount rate, as per the Council’s ‘Hire Fee Framework – For Hire of Auckland Council’s Community Facilities’.

 

17.     Impact of implementing new fees and charges

In the July to December 2014 period, the council received enquiries from eight of the 24 regular hirers across three of the four council-managed facilities: Mangere Central Community Hall, Mangere Old School Hall and Mangere War Memorial Hall. These eight accepted a transition arrangement until the end of September 2014. While there were no cancellations at these three venues, there were a small number of cancellations at the Mangere Community House, which were small church groups which did not qualify for a priority rate. For the full list of regular hirers, please refer to Attachment B.

 

Summary of utilisation, visits and revenue by local board area

18.     Please note that some figures in the following graphs are reported as percentage points (pp), while others are shown as a percentage (%). For a table of fees and charges per venue for the July to December period, please refer to the summary in Attachment C. Attachment D shows the number of sessions booked by activity type.

 

19.     Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board – utilisation (hours booked)

 

The utilisation of the local board’s four council managed facilities decreased on average by16 percentage points when compared with the same period last year. This ranged from a ‘no change’ at one venue to a decrease of 31 percentage points at the Mangere Community Centre. (Please refer to later graphs in this report for utilisation figures for each facility).

 

20.     Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board – visits

 

Visitors to the local board’s four council-managed community facilities increased on average by nearly five per cent when compared with the same period last year, with all facilities reporting increases. This is in contrast with the lower utilisation and is possible by a change in customer type to larger groups, which have a greater number of participants.

 

21.     Highlights/exceptions/mitigating factors

Utilisation and visits at a facility level are shown on the two graphs below. Mangere Community House had a marked change in utilisation. Most facilities had marked changes to visitor numbers.

 

 

 

 

 

22.     Mangere Community House

  Compared with the same period last year Mangere Community House, reported a 31

  percentage point decrease in utilisation, while visits to the centre increased by just over 51 

  per cent from 2,516 per month to 3,818 per month. Utilisation is significantly lower at

  Mangere Community House due to the departure of a number of small church groups, which

  did not qualify for a priority rate. Visitor numbers are higher due to a number of large

  community events that attract many participants.

 

 

 

23.     Other observable exceptions were;

·    Mangere Central Community Hall: 38 per cent decrease in visits.

·    Mangere War Memorial: 49 per cent increase in visits.

 

24.     In July 2014, a new process was introduced to book the available spaces in most of the council-managed community facilities across the region and to ensure the cancellation charge was applied where appropriate. This has greatly helped to record more accurate utilisation, particularly with last-minute cancellations or ‘no shows’ for bookings. Back in 2013, the utilisation figures may not have reflected these actions by the users.

 

25.     Revenue

 

 

 

On average, the local board earned almost 50 per cent more revenue when compared with the same period last year and this is in contrast with the lower utility and visitor numbers. This is likely due to a change in customer types to those paying a higher fee or an increase in the fees paid by customers, as well as a tighter charging of cancellation fees.

 

          In Summary

26.     The table below summarises the combined activity of the four council-managed facilities over the period 1 July to 31 December 2014. Utilisation of the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board community facilities decreased by 16 percentage points (pp). Over the same period, visitor numbers increased slightly from 79,215 to 82,949 (+4.7 per cent) and revenue significantly increased by $24,719 (+49 per cent).

 

Utilisation

Visitors

Revenue

-16 pp

+3,734 (+4.7%)

   +$24,719 (+49%)

 

 

27.     For the 2014/2015 financial year, revenue from community facilities is expected to increase for the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board. This could help contribute to the maintenance of these facilities and reflects the good practice principles imbedded in the framework, including fairness to all users.

 

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

28.     The impact of the new community facilities fees and charges introduced on 1 July 2014 were work shopped with members of the local board on 4 March 2015. It was the view of members at this workshop that all activity at the Mangere Community House (except activity with a religious purpose) receive additional subsidy. If the board wish to institute this arrangement the following resolution should be passed:

 

·    The Mangere Local Board direct all activity at the Mangere Community House (except activity with a religious purpose) be given the local priority discount rate, as per the Council’s ‘Hire Fee Framework – For Hire of Auckland Council’s Community Facilities’.

29.     The recommendations within this report fall within the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board’s authority relating to local recreation, sport and community facilities.

Māori impact statement

30.     The fees and charges framework is not specifically targeted for Maori populations. However, it aims to be clear and transparent to all users, including Maori.

Implementation

31.     The recommendations in this report do not trigger the Auckland Council Significance Policy.

Term

Definition

B

Bookings

Number of slots/sessions booked by a hirer

C

Casual hirer

Group or individual who has made 5 or less bookings across the network of Community Facilities managed by CDAC per year.

Percentage points

A percentage point (pp) represents the difference between two percentages on a 100 per cent scale. It is used for measures like utilisation so the changes can be put into the right context. For example, if utilisation increased from thirty per cent to forty per cent that could be stated in error as a 25 per cent increase. To put it in the right context means it would be a ten percentage point increase. Volume-based increases or decreases (e.g. visitor numbers or revenue) are reported as percentages.

Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board

15 April 2015

 

 

Update on Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board Engagement and Communications Strategy

 

File No.: CP2015/04483

 

  

 

 

Purpose

1.       To update the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board on progress in implementing the board’s Engagement and Communications Strategy.

Executive Summary

2.       The Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board Engagement and Communications Strategy was adopted by the board during December 2014 (see Attachment A for the full strategy). The strategy outlined new initiatives that the board would undertake to improve its engagement with local communities, and outlined how the success of its engagement could be measured.

3.       Recent outcomes suggest that the board is making significant improvements to its engagement with local communities. However, maintaining and continuing to build on this level of engagement will continue to be a challenge over the medium-long term.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board receives the report.

 

 

Comments

4.       The Engagement and Communications Strategy includes a commitment to trial a regular public meeting between the board and their communities. Accordingly, the board established a regular community fono to address this commitment, holding the first fono on 10 March 2015. Notes from the fono are included in Attachment B.

5.       The strategy lists several factors by which the success of the board’s engagement can be measured. These include “Public meeting attendance” and “Number of new contacts added to local board contacts database”. In the context of the community fono, the board appears to be making significant gains in terms of these objectives. 40 members of the public attended the fono and discussed a range of topics. Of this number, 23 were new to the board’s contacts database. While this indicates that the board is able to significantly extend its reach into the community using the fono, the true success of the fono as an initiative will not be known until it has been running for a year or more, and when feedback has been gathered from attendees to evaluate the fono from their perspective.

6.       With regards to public communications via social media, the strategy listed a further set of objectives including to “Promote interactive engagement”. With respect to this objective, the board has increased its Facebook network by approximately 62% since the adoption of the strategy suggesting that significant progress has also been made in the area of social media. This is attributable to the direct involvement of board members with Facebook posts and inviting their networks to like the page. In addition, staff are currently trialling new approaches to increasing online engagement and building the board’s profile.

7.       The strategy also highlighted the need to identify upcoming engagement opportunities in a rolling calendar. This information is now being collated using Microsoft Outlook and distributed to board members as needed.

8.       As part of the media liaison service provided by staff from Local Board Communications and noted in section 9 of the strategy, a regular fortnightly morning interview has been set up for the local board Chair on Radio 531pi. The radio station is targeted toward Pacific people who make up over half of the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu area’s population. This is anticipated to further enhance the board’s engagement with its communities and can expect to be reflected by measureable increases in engagement in the future.

Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board

Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board’s feedback to ‘The Auckland Film Protocol, Revised 2014

 

The Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board appreciates the opportunity to comment and provide its feedback to The Auckland Film Protocol (Revised 2014).

The board is supportive of the overall objectives noted in the document.

1.   The Māngere-Ōtāhuhu local board area offers, through its rich natural environment and heritage locations many opportunities for filming activity. The board is supportive of initiatives that help in achieving its three-year plan. Of particular relevance in the context of the Auckland Film Protocol is the board’s aspiration for a strong local economy.

2.   Section Three: The board supports the intent in the statement:

 

“Filming can create vibrancy in communities where locals are informed, engaged and sometimes even involved.”

 

3.   The board recommends that a stronger emphasis be given in the text to achieve this intent.  There are local benefits that are beyond direct return from filming in an area.  Creating employment opportunities and supporting local business and enterprise can go a long way in building the local economy.

 

4.   That the word “sometimes” be deleted in the first paragraph of section 3.

That more text be added to paragraph no. 3.6 to build a stronger emphasis on encouraging and supporting local business, employment and enterprise. The board recommends:

·    that the Film Protocol and the Screen Industry Code of Conduct actively encourage the industry to support local employment, opportunities for local business and enterprise. 

·    as noted in document, the protocol aims to accommodate the needs of local residents and businesses.  The regulatory controls and consent to filming is only one aspect of filming activity. It is equally important that local communities have a fair chance of taking advantage of opportunities that the screen industry offers when filming activities occur. Clear policy directives are essential especially for a balanced growth and development in Auckland.

·    Māngere-Ōtāhuhu local board area has a high youthful population and low employment in the area.  The screen industry is in a position to actively involve local business, enterprise and communities when it utilizes the rich natural environments of Māngere-Ōtāhuhu for purposes of filming. The Auckland Film Protocol can place a clear emphasis in the code of conduct to encourage proactive efforts by the screen industry. The wording under point 3.6 should carry a stronger and state more explicitly an intent to encourage involvement of local business.

·    Involving local communities and businesses is a means to gain buy-in from the local area and for the public to be informed and engaged.

·    That annual monitoring of film related statistics also include information on impact on local businesses, employment and retail.  That is, what is the impact on the local economy through opportunities created by the screen industry? This analysis must be made available for each local board area.

Developing the Empowered Communities Approach

 

File No.: CP2015/04929

 

  

 

 

Purpose

1.       This report provides an overview of the Empowered Communities Approach (ECA), 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.

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

·    two chairs and portfolio holder workshops.

·    individual board workshops in April.

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

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.

7.       A targeted programme of community engagement is underway.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      receives the Developing the Empowered Communities Approach report.

b)      either delegate, hold an extraordinary meeting, or accept a late report so that the board can provide formal feedback during the period 5 May – 3 June.

 

 

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 ECAP 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 (PAG) 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, Julia Parfitt, Kay McIntyre), 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 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 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 empowered community approach 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.

Sportsfield Capacity Development Fund - Moyle Park, Williams Park and Mangere Centre Park

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board supports the proposal to upgrade Moyle Park, Williams Park and Mangere Centre Park through reallocation of regionwide ‘Sports Field Capacity Development’ funding, instead of Norana Park.                                            Background:
• The original Sportsfield Capacity Development Fund (SFCD fund) is a regional fund approved by Regional Development and Operations Committee in Dec 2012. In the approved list of projects, Norana Park was to be funded for upgrades in 2015/16. The budget was $127,000 (2014/15) for design and consents and $1,250,000 (2015/16) for physical works.
• In early 2014, there was a request of the local board (made by officers) that the funds be reprioritised. The officers approached the local board to consider reprioritising SFCD funding from Norana Park to other parks, as the officer advice was that sports clubs are not domiciled on Norana Park. The further advice was that funding could be more effectively utilised if directed to Williams, Moyle and Centre Parks, as they housed clubs and capacity improvements would benefit the clubs and their members.
• There was some contention around the proposal amongst local board members and the report was delayed until June 2014, because some local board members wanted greater clarity on what was being proposed and why. In June the Local Board approved redirection of funds, noting clause 16 of the officers’ report that says “There are no known risks with this change”. We understand that clubs were subsequently informed of the local board’s decision to reprioritise this funding.
• Then, there was delay in delivery of the design and consents phase. Progress reports on the Moyle, Williams and Centre Parks has been sought by the local board’s Parks Portfolio holders on a number of occasions.
• Follow-up has indicated that the redirected funding is no longer available and sport fields upgrades are no longer being progressed.
• Informal advice appears to be that a review of the SFCD fund has resulted in these funds being redirected outside the local board area altogether
       A report is sought to advise on this and the current status of the local board’s resolution
