File No.: CP2015/20213

 

  

 

 

Purpose

1.       To accept decisions of the Albert-Eden Local Board on local dog access rules, and make the necessary amendments to the Auckland Council Policy on Dogs 2012 and Auckland Council Dog Management Bylaw 2012.

Executive Summary

2.       From 1 July 2013, local boards have the delegated authority to make changes to local dog access rules in the Auckland Council Policy on Dogs 2012.

3.       The Albert-Eden Local Board has reviewed and made changes to local dog access rules in 2015.

4.       To implement local board decisions the Governing Body must update the Auckland Council Dog Management Bylaw 2012 and approve local board decisions that use alternative summer times or seasons to those contained in the Auckland Council Policy on Dogs 2012.

5.       The necessary updates to the Auckland Council Policy on Dogs 2012 and Dog Management Bylaw 2012 to give effect to the changes are contained in Attachment A.

 

Recommendations

That the Governing Body:

a)      note the Albert-Eden Local Board has made final decisions on changes to local dog access rules in accordance with its delegations.

b)      approve the following alternative local board summer times and season:

Local Board

Comments

6.       From 1 July 2013, local boards (for the first time) have been delegated responsibility to change local dog access rules in the Auckland Council Policy on Dogs 2012. This does not include areas subject to region-wide rules (e.g. playgrounds), areas of regional significance and areas not under control of Auckland Council (e.g. areas administered by the Department of Conservation or Tūpuna Maunga o Tāmaki Makaurau Authority).

7.       The process for local boards to change local dog access rules uses the special consultative procedure under the Local Government Act 2002. A pre-consultation period over summer 2014/15 gathered information and community views to inform the development of proposed changes. The proposed changes were then publicly notified for submissions. All known dog owners were notified as part of the dog registration process in June 2015. Public hearings and deliberations were held before a final decision was made.

 

8.       To implement local board decisions, the Governing Body must:

·        update the Auckland Council Dog Management Bylaw 2012.

This is a procedural step that cannot be delegated to local boards. Under section 10 of the Dog Control Act 1996, the Governing Body must update the dog bylaw within 60 days of a local board change to the policy on dogs. The Governing Body cannot change the local board decision.

·        approve local board decisions that use alternative summer times or seasons to those contained in the Auckland Council Policy on Dogs 2012 (Table 2).

Alternative summer times and seasons may be adopted by local boards to better meet the council’s overriding statutory requirement to provide for public safety and comfort, and to achieve the overall objective and policy statements of the Auckland Council Policy on Dogs 2012, to keep dogs as a positive part of Auckland life, and to provide dog access in a way that is safe for everyone.

In these instances, the Governing Body, in adopting the policy on dogs “recognised that regional consistency and local needs need to be carefully balanced depending on the unique circumstances for each area” (Governing Body 22 November 2012) which recognises that the desire for consistency is secondary to the overriding statutory requirement of the council and overall objective and policy statements of the Auckland Council Policy on Dogs 2012.

The Governing Body, at its September and October 2014 and September 2015 meetings, approved alternative summer times or seasons shown in Table 1 (resolution numbers GB/2014/105, GB/2014/122 and GB/2015/105).

Proposed response to information request from Local Government Commission re Northern Action Group’s proposal for local government re-organisation in the North Rodney Area

 

File No.: CP2015/24342

 

  

 

 

Purpose

1.      To endorse a response to the Local Government Commission to assist their assessment of a proposal for local government re-organisation in the North Rodney Area.

Executive Summary

2.      The Northern Action Group (NAG) has applied to the Local Government Commission for local government re-organisation in the North Rodney area. Attachment A is a map showing the area of the proposed North Rodney Unitary Council (NRUC).

3.      Attachment B sets out the Local Government Commission’s assessment process. The next step is for the Commission to decide what the affected area in respect of NAG’s application.

4.      The Commission has asked for Auckland Council’s assessment of whether the operational scale, scope, or capability of Auckland Council would be materially affected if the North Rodney re-organisation proposal were to occur.

5.      The proposed response, providing examples of operational impacts for Auckland Council if NAG’s proposal were to occur, is provided in attachments C to H.

6.      The proposed response was endorsed by the Rodney Local Board on 16 November 2015. Following approval by the governing body, the final response will be submitted to the Local Government Commission, with a covering letter signed by the Mayor and Chief Executive.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Governing Body:

a)      approve Attachments C to H of the agenda report as Auckland Council’s response to the Local Government Commission’s information request.

 

Comments

7.      The Northern Action Group (NAG) has applied to the Local Government Commission for local government re-organisation in the North Rodney Area. NAG is proposing to create a North Rodney Unitary Council (NRUC) in the area indicated by the map at Attachment A. 

8.      In August 2015, the Local Government Commission determined that NAG’s re-organisation application met the criteria to enable it to be assessed. Attachment B sets out the Commission’s assessment process.  NAG’s application is at the beginning of the assessment process. 

9.      The next step in the assessment process is for the Local Government Commission to decide what the affected area is (as set out in the Local Government Act 2002 Schedule 3, clause 2) in respect of NAG’s application.  In this case, for example, the affected area could be the Auckland Council area, the Rodney Local Board area; or the North Rodney area.

10.    The Local Government Commission has requested information from Auckland Council to assist it with this decision. The Commission has asked for Auckland Council’s assessment of whether the operational scale, scope, or capability of Auckland Council would be materially affected if the North Rodney re-organisation proposal were to occur; and for examples to support our assessment. The Commission has advised that we do not need to provide every example of the potential impact of NAG’s proposal.

11.     The proposed response to the Local Government Commission is attached to this report. The response, in the following attachments, provides examples of key operational impacts for Auckland Council if NAG’s proposal were to occur:

·      Attachment C - council’s ability to accommodate and provide for Auckland’s growth;

·      Attachments D and E - council’s commitments, obligations and relationships with Māori;

·      Attachment F - delivery of council’s Long Term Plan 2015-2025 commitments from delay to NewCore implementation and need to de-couple data;

·      Attachments G and H – the Rodney Ward and Rodney Local Board and planned activity in the area.

12.    The proposed response was endorsed by the Rodney Local Board on 16 November 2015. Following approval of the response by the governing body the final response will be submitted to the Local Government Commission with a covering letter signed by the Mayor and Chief Executive.

13.     This report does not provide an analysis of NAG’s re-organisation proposal. Should NAG’s proposal proceed through the remaining steps in the Local Government Commission’s process, a full analysis will be provided to elected members at the appropriate time.

Next Steps

14.    Once the Local Government Commission has determined the affected area, the next step in the process is to determine whether there is support in “the district of each affected territorial authority for local government re-organisation in the affected area”. The Commission has advised that it anticipates making this decision in December 2015.

15.    Should the Local Government Commission determine that there is sufficient community support for re-organisation, the next step is for the Commission to call for alternative re-organisation applications.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

16.    The proposed response to the Local Government Commission highlights the key impacts for the Rodney Local Board of the NAG proposal and was endorsed by the Rodney Local Board on 16 November 2015.

Māori impact statement

17.    The draft response to the Local Government Commission contains information and comment about the impact of the North Rodney re-organisation proposal on Auckland Council’s commitments and obligations towards Māori, Auckland Council’s relationship’s with iwi and potential impact on Treaty Settlements under negotiation.

Governing Body decision-making during the 2015/16 Christmas recess

 

File No.: CP2015/23190

 

  

 

 

Purpose

1.       To confirm the process for urgent political decision-making over the 2015/2016 Christmas recess period.

Executive Summary

2.       The Christmas recess period starts from the last Governing Body meeting in December 2015 to the first scheduled meeting of the Governing Body or its committees in 2016.

3.       The Governing Body needs to be prepared to manage unforeseen circumstances and respond to any statutory requirements over the Christmas recess period.

4.       This report recommends the same delegation system as previous years for making urgent decisions over this period.

5.       The first meeting of the Governing Body in the New Year will be scheduled for Thursday 28 January 2016, but will only be held if required.

6.       The recommended process is consistent with arrangements for previous years.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Governing Body:

a)      delegate to any two of either the mayor or deputy mayor, and a chairperson of a committee of the whole, the power to make urgent decisions on behalf of the Governing Body or its committees between the last scheduled Governing Body meeting in December 2015 and the first meeting of the Governing Body or other relevant Committees in 2016.

b)      agree that if a matter of major significance arises during the 2015/2016 Christmas recess period, an extraordinary meeting of the Governing Body will be called.

c)      note that the first meeting of the Governing Body in the New Year will be scheduled for Thursday 28 January 2016, but will only be held if required.

 

 

Comments

7.       Part 6 of the Local Government Act sets out the obligations of local authorities in relation to decision-making.  Council needs to be able to make urgent decisions during the Christmas recess period. This is simply a procedural decision to enable efficient decision-making to occur.  Existing delegations will remain in place for all non-urgent decisions.

8.       Any matters to be decided under this delegation will be advised to decision-makers via the chief executive or his delegate, who will supply the necessary background and reasons for urgency.  The decision will also be reported to the next ordinary meeting of the Governing Body or relevant committee.

9.       If the matter is of major significance, an extraordinary meeting of the Governing Body will be called.

10.     The Governing Body has made this delegation for all previous years of Auckland Council.

Consideration
