ITEM 12 Cr Anae Report

Manukau Ward Local Boards April 2015

Text Box: Dialogue and workshop on social inclusion, good policies and practices (for disabled people in Asia and the Pacific 
Sponsored by UNESCO and Auckland Council 
18 and 19 March 2015, Manukau, Auckland
-----
Councillor Arthur Anae served as Auckland Council’s main proponent for this conference. Mayors, governors and councillors from the Asia-Pacific region were in attendance; including key officials from UNESCO.  Countries that sent their local government representatives to the conference include Bhutan, Indonesia, Kiribati, Niue, Mongolia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. Auckland Council’s advisory panels’ representatives and David Taipari of IMSB were also present and gave presentations and provided further insights about what they do to through questions and answers. Ms. Philippa Reed, Diversity Manager talked about how her office manages diversity, inclusiveness and Council’s statutory obligations as an equal opportunity employer.
The programme included a wiki tour of facilities and infrastructures within Auckland that cater to people with disabilities including a tour of shared spaces in Elliott Street at the CBD. Mayor Len Brown hosted a dinner for the participants at Town Hall.
Councillor Anae considers the conference an opportunity for involved parties to learn from one another and for them to incorporate the learnings into the practice and approach towards a more inclusive society. It was also an opportunity to showcase Auckland and our country’s drive to bring about a just and inclusive New Zealand. (Conference documents are attached for reference.)

International Conference of the Coalition of Cities on Social Inclusion: Good Policies and Good Practices for Disabled people in Asia and the Pacific

Auckland Declaration

The Coalition of Cities Against Discrimination in Asia and the Pacific was founded in 2006 and includes a variety of local governments such as municipalities, cities and provinces.

The members of the Coalition reaffirm our commitment to the Ten Point Action Plan that aims to reduce and eliminate racism and discrimination based on our common values and principles reaffirmed during the Auckland conference.

We agree that our goals can be achieved through the development and on-going assessment of practical plans and actions at all levels of governance with urban and rural communities;

We, the members of the Coalition which includes all local government units will build an international community to promote social inclusion that shall inspire and mobilize all citizens to work together with all stakeholders in implementing concrete plans aided by responsive and effective policies to implement the Ten Point Action Plan;

We the members of the Coalition will work together to develop and share new tools, resources, expertise and exchange experiences that will support us in our work against all forms of discriminations;

We will develop a system of tracking progress of our collective work and measure and evaluate performance and impact at the country, regional, and global levels. We may also be able to measure community level success by identifying clearly our indicators and the means to measure;

The members of the Coalition will hold its next regional conference of Cities against Discrimination, in Thailand in 2016. At that time members are encouraged to share their follow up to this declaration to the practical implementation of the Ten Point Action Plan through providing good practices and policies;

A website for the Coalition of Cities against Discrimination in Asia and the Pacific will be established as an avenue in sharing good practices across borders and oceans;

The members present at the conference, reflecting the composition of the Asia Pacific Coalition, recommended to UNESCO to consult with other regional coalition of cities to include all forms of local governments as members of the Coalition, ranging in size from village, municipalities, cities, to provinces;

We the members of the Coalition declare commitment to work as a regional Coalition to evaluate better practical measures to promote and protect human rights, and to promote respect of the integrity and dignity of all people including persons living with disabilities. 

WE THE PARTICIPANTS OF THIS CONFERENCE PLEDGE OUR COMMITMENT TO THIS DECLARATION.

Agreed on this day, 19th of March, 2015, Valentines Manukau, Auckland, New Zealand.

 


Item 20

 Local board advocacy and feedback on Long-term Plan 2015 – 2025 proposals – Updated Advocacy List

Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board input into LTP 2015 - 25

 

Local priorities

Advocacy request

Activity area

Why is it a priority?

Funding implications or options

Development of the Māngere East Multi-use Community Centre through funding of the Community Facilities Network Plan

Local Community Services

The local community facilities at Māngere East are a multitude of old or repurposed facilitates which are not fit for purpose.

This area has been identified in the Community Facilities Network Plan as a priority.

The adjoining town centre site redevelopment which is a private venture is near completion.

The board have recently redeveloped the sportsfields on Walter Massey Park to increase year round usage by the Māngere East Hawks Rugby League Club and Manukau City Football Club. 

The timing provides a unique opportunity to invest in this local town centre by providing a hub for the Māngere East area by building a multi-use facility to build on the current development to transform the Māngere East town centre in a relatively short time.

This aligns with the Southern Initiative priority of a 'Safe, stable and healthy homes and communities' outcome as well as the transformational shift of 'children and young people' as stated in the Auckland Plan.

Currently the board is undertaking a needs analysis for the Māngere East area.

The board request that governing body allocates funding for the development of a multi-use community facility for Māngere-East.

Governing body allocates funding to deliver on the Community Facilities Network Plan

Alcohol harm minimisation through reducing the proliferation of off-licenses

Local Community Services

Harm associated with alcohol is a problem in Mangere-Otahuhu. There has been a marked increase in new applications for stand alone liquor licences in Mangere-Otahuhu.

Until the Local Alcohol Plan (LAP) is in place, which may be several years away, there is a risk that high deprivation areas will be inundated with liquor outlets attempting to beat the implementation of the LAP. The LAP seeks to give greater weighting to community concerns regarding new applications for liquor licenses.

The board seeks Governing Body support by providing feedback in the development of the LAP, review of the District Licensing Committees, adoption of signage bylaws and any direct or indirect plan, policy or bylaw to giving voice to local community views to guide how alcohol impacts their local community.

No funding required.

Additional support and funding for a Southern Waste Recycling Centre

Local Environmental Development

As the regional policy to reduce and minimise waste comes into effect there is a need to take up co-ordinated measures to support community recycling. This is a shared concern among the southern boards.

The board are aware that a regional scoping exercise is underway to investigate a Southern Resource Recovery Centre.

The board requests that Governing Body secure funding for the implementation of a Southern Resource Recovery Centre through the LTP within the next 3 years.

Support in principle to fund the implementation of the Regional Resource Recovery Strategy.

Clean-up the Manukau Harbour by improving the health of our fresh water streams

Local Environmental Development

Improvements to the water quality of the Manukau Harbour is vital to ensure that further degradation of the Harbour does not occur. 

Intensification in housing through the Unitary Plan or Special Housing Areas (SHA) for example, where Mangere-Otahuhu has 3 Special Housing Areas near the coastal areas, will subject our major catchment area - Manukau Harbour to further increased run-off and treated wastewater.

The board seeks that the governing body prioritises a regional plan for the management and enhancement of the Manukau Harbour and its coastal environs.

The board also requests greater support for the Manukau Harbour Forum in its work to maintain and enhance the Manukau Harbour as one of Auckland's natural environmental treasures.

Requests that hydrodynamic mapping is required to improve the body of knowledge of the harbour and that this be prioritised as the first step to 'improving and restoring the health of the Manukau Harbour'.

The local board wants work programmes that will include immediate actions for the clean-up of the Manukau Harbour and its tributary waterways and notes that this aligns with the Auckland Plan outcome for the 'Environment' and committing to environmental action.

Support in principle to provide resource the Manukau Harbour Forum.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Requests funding from Governing Body for hydrodynamic mapping of the Manukau Harbour and waterways.

 

 

 

Increase in the proportion of local development contributions for local investments to offset adverse effects of increased growth.

 

The board have continually questioned the policy of taking Development Contributions from local development growth and distributing those funds to another local board area. Growth in the local board area requires that commensurate resources be reinvested back into the local area to offset development pressures i.e. increased traffic, lack of community facilities, loss of amenity and public open space.

Business and commercial growth adds to the impacts of growth which can have a detrimental effect on adjoining residential areas - Airport growth - increase adverse traffic effects.  Current assessments of priority growth areas focus on residential development for the prioritisation of development contributions.

That SHA's such as Ōtāhuhu which is not being delivered by a major single landowner like most SHA's, but individual property developers, may miss out on associated development contribution funding due to existing measures of growth.

The local board request governing body to review its current position on the distribution of development contributions to allow those areas with the greatest impact of growth, be it business or residential to be apportioned with a greater share of development contributions.

No funding required.

Support the development of the Southern Initiative

The Southern Initiative

The board supports the Auckland Plan priority for transformational change through the agency of the Southern Initiative and its various focus areas and projects.

The need for support over the next 10 years is critical to unlocking the potential of the target local board areas to improve the lives of the local people. This will provide the opportunity to realise the potential contributions this community can make to the local, regional and wider national economy.

The board wants to work more collaboratively with the TSI team to deliver on the common outcomes.

Commit to long term funding for the Southern Initiative

CCO Priorities

Advocacy request

CCO

Why is it a priority?

Funding implications or options

Build the Māngere Town Centre bus station and interchange improvements

Auckland Transport

The upgrade of this interchange is part of the network of infrastructure projects required for the New Network Plan.

Public transport is a high priority for the local board and community for increasing access for local communities to employment and education. Improving, what could be the most dilapidated bus interchange in the whole region will provide the patrons with greater security and shelter.

This delivers on a Southern Initiative outcome of "increased services and use of public transport" as outlined in the Auckland Plan.
 

Prioritise in the Regional Land Transport Plan to be completed by 2016/17

Build the Ōtāhuhu Bus and Rail Interchange

Auckland Transport

The upgrade of this interchange is critical to the network of infrastructure projects required for the New Network Plan.

This facility is seen as critical for the success of the New Network rollout in the south and providing the efficiencies which are required of an efficient public transport system.

This delivers on a Southern Initiative outcome of "increased services and use of public transport" and the Public Transport transformational shift as outlined in the Auckland Plan.

Ōtāhuhu is also part the Spatial Priority Area and will be subject to increased growth due to its designation as a Special Housing Area.

Move forward in the proposed Regional Land Transport Plan to start 2015/16

Airport rapid transit project (was known as Auckland Transport’s SMART project)

Auckland Transport

The Airport to CBD rapid transit project is of long term strategic importance to the board.

The development of the local boards 'Area Plan' which fed into the development of the Unitary Plan zonings and priority areas was informed by early SMART project discussions.

The progression of this project is supported by the board, but any planning for future rapid transit solutions should remain aligned with the intent of Area Plan and subsequently the Unitary Plan.

To secure Auckland's long term security for our heavy freight industry, the local board support a heavy rail link to the airport and then Puhinui as the primary solution to ensure a robust rail network that serves both freight and passengers.

There has been limited engagement on any alternate options being considered through the LTP, and therefore the benefits/ costs to local communities have not yet been fully considered.

This project also delivers on a Southern Initiative outcome of "increased services and use of public transport" as outlined in the Auckland Plan.

Consider the long term benefits/ costs of the various Airport to CBD options prior to committing funding support.

Continue in principle the Māngere Gateway Programme and fund to the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board.

Auckland Tourism, Events & Economic Development

Initially the Māngere Gateway project was is a long term programme which sought to deliver on:
- Maori economic aspirations
- growing regional cultural and heritage tourism
- increase local employment

A reprioritisation of funding by Governing Body in 2014 has restricted this projects ability to deliver on the key outcome areas.

The growth of the Airport and the potential growth of the visitors trips into Auckland means that this is unique opportunity and time for Auckland to develop and grow its cultural and heritage tourism industry.

ATEED now as role in this process to support investigation, development and delivery of a programme of initiatives in the local area that will work with Marae and local businesses, entrepreneurs to achieve the project outcomes in the next 3 years.

Local board requests continued support and funding for the delivery of the outcomes of the 'Gateway Project'

This project aligns with the Southern Initiative outcome of 'creating an outstanding international gateway and destination area' as well as the 'economic development and jobs for local people"  as outlined in the Auckland Plan.

Direction to Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development to prioritise the 'Gateway Project' project to establish and grow Auckland's cultural and heritage tourism industry.
