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

 

File No.: CP2015/05342

 

  

Purpose

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

2.       This feedback is informing the Upper Harbour Local Board advocacy to the Budget Committee and will inform decisions that the Upper Harbour 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 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 27,353 pieces of written feedback, of which 590 were received from the Upper Harbour Local Board area. In addition 16 people attended a ‘Have Your Say’ event in the Upper Harbour 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 Upper Harbour Local Board area. It also summarises feedback on the regional proposals from people or organisations based in the Upper Harbour area. 

6.       This feedback will be used to inform the Upper Harbour Local Board advocacy to the Budget Committee at discussions on 24, 28 and 29 April. These discussions are timed to inform the Budget Committee prior to them making decisions on the LTP on 7 and 8 May.

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

 

 

Recommendation/s

That the Upper Harbour Local Board:

a)      confirm an updated list of advocacy points for the discussions with the Budget Committee on 24, 28 and 29 April.

 

 

Comments

8.       The summary of the feedback received through the Long-term Plan 2015 - 2025 (LTP) consultation relevant to the Upper Harbour Local Board is presented as Attachment A.

9.       Each piece of written feedback from the Upper Harbour Local Board area and the feedback recorded from local engagement and ‘Have Your Say’ events is available at the Upper Harbour Local Board office, Kell Drive, Albany and on the Auckland Council website for reference purposes. 

10.     This feedback builds on the Upper Harbour Local Board’s understanding of their community’s priorities and preferences. It will inform the Upper Harbour Local Board’s advocacy to the Budget Committee at discussions on 24, 28 and 29 April.  At these discussions the Upper Harbour Local Board will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the key consultation issues of investing in Auckland, fixing transport, sharing rates and housing and development. The Upper Harbour Local Board may also provide feedback on regional proposals with particular impact locally and may advocate for specific local priorities where the Budget Committee is the decision maker, such as large capital projects. 

11.     The updated advocacy points from the Upper Harbour Local Board will be tabled at the meeting of adoption by the local board.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

12.     The Upper Harbour Local Board needs to consider any changes that it might make to their LDI budgets or advocacy in light of the feedback on the LTP proposals.

Māori impact statement

13.     Many local board decisions are of importance to and impact on Maori. The local board agreements are important tools that enable and can demonstrate the council’s responsiveness to Maori. The local board agreement is based on the local board plan, which have both been developed through engagement with the community, including Maori.

Implementation

14.     Following the local board discussions with the Budget Committee on 24, 28 and 29 April the Budget Committee will make decisions on regional proposals on 7 and 8 May.  Local boards will then hold workshops from 14 to 20 May to finalise their local board agreements prior to them being adopted at board meetings between 9 and 16 June.
