Developing the Empowered Communities Approach

 

Resolution number MR/2015/54

MOVED by Chairperson AM Dalton, seconded by Member D Wrightson:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)         receive the report entitled “Developing the Empowered Communities Approach”.

b)         provide the following initial feedback on the Developing Empowered Communities Approach:

 

i)     Whilst recognising the opportunities that could be forthcoming through a shift within the Community Development Arts and Culture Department towards a community led community development approach, there is concern that the timeframe adopted for implementation on 1 July 2015 is not feasible for such a major change to be designed, communicated and progressed. The timeframe does not allow for testing the approach or evaluating impact on the community and the organisation.

ii)    The Local Board Plan outcomes are informed and given shape by communities in Manurewa and as such are in fact community outcomes. These need to be central to the community led community development approach being prepared. Local Board Plan outcomes reflect the difference between areas and as such the approach will need to be able to adopt different organisational forms to meet local needs, demands and capacity.  

iii)   Trials are needed to demonstrate how the approach being considered would operate in practice. This should include testing the model against current Local Board Plan outcomes and activities actually taking place within the community sector.

c)         note that formal feedback on the “Developing the Empowered Communities Approach” is required during the period 5 May – 3 June.

d)         delegate authority to the Chairperson and Deputy Chairperson (Community Services portfolio lead) to draft the Manurewa Local Board feedback on the “Developing the Empowered Communities Approach” noting that this will be provided to the 14 May 2015 Manurewa Local Board meeting for endorsement.
