·         the interests and preferences of persons with disabilities in Auckland in relation to regional strategies, policies, plans, and bylaws of the Council;

·         any other matters that the Panel considers to be of particular interest or concern to persons with disabilities in Auckland; and

·         processes and mechanisms for engaging with persons with disabilities in Auckland.

 

The DAP has up to 11 members who are appointed on the basis of their individual expertise and experience in strategic thinking, governance and communication skills, knowledge of disability and accessibility issues and connections with disability organisations and networks across Auckland.

What will people with disabilities and older people expect to see from Panuku Development Auckland in terms of these objectives?

 

Outcomes 2030

Baseline  -  Stretch  -  Aspirational

 

-     Minimum accessibility standards for all new housing (and commercial)

-     excellent public transport locations are the focus of redevelopment activities

-     excellent neighbourhood accessibility to social/community infrastructure

-     community empowered to articulate/communicate their housing needs

-     framing of positive rights

-     downsizing

-     new standards are mainstreamed

-     greater adaptability built into new housing e.g. lifts/heights - choice

-     there is much greater choice in options for aged living:

-business models

-assets

-     open spaces are maintained particularly in heritage/cultural

-     monitoring/reporting/transparency-integration


 

How/Mechanisms

 

1.   Thought leadership

-     including good accessible neighbourhood design

2.   Partnering agreements

-     requirements vs flexibility is important.

3.   Corporate responsibility strategy

4.   Procurement

Facilitate engagement between community/consumers and developers re: housing needs

5.   Statement of Intent

6.   Measurement and Evaluation

(Register like the one in the London example)

-     create own policies

-     develop approaches re best location for accessibility

-     modelling and analysis

-     communicate outcomes to market

 

Limitations/Challenges

Best fit for location/project:

-     affordability

-     sustainability

-     accessibility

-     promoting universal design/key indicators - simple

 


 

 

-     Lifetime costs of dwellings/occupants not just construction costs

 


                    Lifetime value

 

-     value to buyers/consumers

Measures

 

-     how many houses – primary focus new housing

o percentage universal design

o or minimum universal design standards for all 

-     Caution re percentage based approach

-     might be targets to location/context – best fit with each project

-     use Auckland Design Manual to set neighbourhood measures

(Neighbourhood Measures planning coming next)

 6 months e.g. walkable metrics

(Note - review of NZ building code)

Strong support from Disability Advisory Panel

-     particularly universal design component- be explicit;[ connection to disability Action plan]

 

[census- Do we know baseline of how many houses are accessible?]

 

Broad - Auckland Design Manual approach/philosophy

 

Specific - Lifemark, Neighbourhood accessibility

but ultimate measure is can people use building?

 

-     Paradigm shift away from minimum percentage - how many  people does the minimum exclude?

 

Process/Next Steps

 

-     Follow ups from this workshop

-     Panuku Development Auckland Board discussion

-     Corporate strategy work

-     Collaboration on what baselines could be

-     Include Panuku Development Auckland action in Disability Action plan, e.g. ‘Explore the potential...’
