Comments

The Waiheke Local Board supported community development staff in establishing the Waiheke Youth Voice, for the purpose of initiating and delivering a local youth development strategy.

9.       Council established a Community Empowerment Unit (CEU) on 1 October 2015 replacing the existing Community Development and safety Unit.

10.     A Youth Voice Transition team is working within the CEU supporting the transition of local youth voice groups in the context of the Empowered Communities Approach. A member of the Youth Voice Transition team met with Waiheke Youth Voice members on 31 October. Staff from this team are available to assist with planning and general advice.

11.     In the future the Strategic Broker allocated to Waiheke will be a point of contact for the Waiheke Youth Voice to facilitate access to expertise within the CEU practice team as required.

12.     The Transition Team will also be arranging meetings with local board representatives and youth voice groups to discuss new ways of working. Potential models range from individual youth voice groups being incorporated as legal entities in their own right, community organisations convening the local youth voice group to a less formal Youth Caucus model. 

13.     Two representatives of Waiheke Youth Voice attended a regional forum of local Youth Voice members on 19 October 2015 to consider how the Empowered Communities Approach impacts their groups.

14.     The Waiheke Local Board committed funding of $10,000 in the Arts Community and Events Department Work Programme for 2015/2016 to enable the coordination of the Waiheke Youth Voice and to provide upskilling opportunities in governance and strategic planning.

15.     The summary of the Waiheke projected budget for 2015/16 is:  

Waiheke Youth Voice Budget

2015/16

Meetings

$500

Youth Development

$5,200

Youth Events/Projects

$4,300

Total Budget

$10,000

                                               

16.     Waiheke Adult Literacy is a well-established organisation with the capacity to manage the allocated funding in support of Waiheke Youth Voice and to provide appropriate guidance to Waiheke Youth Voice members.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

17.     Local board members have previously discussed the need for funding for Waiheke Youth Voice to be held by an appropriate local organisation. Local Board members identified Waiheke Adult Literacy as an appropriate organisation to act as an umbrella organisation for the current financial year.

Māori impact statement

18.     There is a strong relationship between Waiheke Youth Voice and the local board. It will be important to ensure the voice of Maori youth is represented in this relationship. Future youth development will include fostering participation from rangatahi in the area.  

Implementation

19.     If the recommendations are approved, a funding agreement will be negotiated with Waiheke Adult Literacy to implement the recommendations.

Comments

4.       The implementation of the new Community Grants Policy commenced on 1 July 2015. The policy supports each local board to adopt a grants programme for 2015/2016 and the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board adopted its grants programme on 23 April 2015 (see Attachment A).

5.       The local board grants programmes sets out:

·    local board priorities

·    lower priorities for funding

·    exclusions

·    grant types, the number of grant rounds and when these will open and close

·    any additional accountability requirements.

6.       The Waiheke Local Board will operate two local grants rounds for this financial year. The first local grant round closed on 11 September 2015.

7.       The Waiheke Local Board has set a total community grants budget of $40,000.  A total of $14,995 was allocated under round one quick response 2015/2016. A total of $25,005 is remaining for the community grants for the 2015/2016 financial year.

8.       Nineteen applications were received for this local grants round, requesting a total of $233,920.20.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

9.       Local boards are responsible for the decision making and allocation of local board community grants. The Waiheke Local Board is required to fund, part-fund or decline these grant applications against the local board priorities identified in the local board grant programme.

10.     The board is requested to note that section 50 of the Community Grants Policy states “We will also provide feedback to unsuccessful grant applicants about why they have been declined, so they will know what they can do to increase their chances of success next time.”

Māori impact statement

11.     The provision of community grants provides opportunities for all Aucklanders to undertake projects, programmes, activities that benefit a wider range of individuals and groups, including Maori. As a guide for decision-making, in the allocation of community grants, the new community grants policy supports the principle of delivering positive outcomes for Maori. Two applicants in this round have indicated their project targets Maori outcomes.

Implementation

12.     The allocation of grants to community groups is within the adopted Long Term Plan 2015-2025 and local board agreements.

13.     Following the Waiheke Local Board allocating funding for round one local grants, Commercial and Finance staff will notify the applicants of the local board decision.

PROJECT SUMMARY

PROJECT TITLE

Continued Operation of Men's Support Programmes

PROJECT SUMMARY

We have traditionally operated a group for self-referred men to address their own patterns of violence.  It is significant because it assists men to change their own attitudes and behaviours before those behaviours result in police/ Court involvement (i.e., it is preventative in nature and driven entirely by the personal commitment of participants to change).  We receive no funding for the programme as government funding is only available where a man has already committed an offence.  Given increasing operational overheads and decreasing government funds (our government funding has not increased in five years despite increased costs), we face the prospect of needing to discontinue the group for self-referred men unless we can find alternative sources of funding to sustain it.

FUNDING FOR

We seek funding to cover the costs of providing the programme which includes facilitation costs and the provision of resources to participants.

PROJECT LOCATION

Living Without Violence (Waiheke Network) 59 Ostend Road, Waiheke Island

PROJECT DATES:

01/12/2015 - 01/09/2016

 

PROMOTION OF EVENT

Yes - We will continue to promote the Men's Work programme through local media, a poster campaign and the extension of our "Blog in the Bog" advertising in local clubs, sporting facilities and venues.

LOCAL BOARD ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

The contribution of the Local Board will be acknowledged by specific acknowledgement in promotional materials for the programme and on our website, letterhead and in our Annual Report

ACTIVE PARTICIPANTS

15-30 men

AUDIENCE SIZE

The total "audience" is the entire community which will benefit from the ability of men to engage in the programme.  Direct benefit will accrue to each participant, their partner and children.

MAORI OUTCOMES

Yes - While the programme is available to Maori and Pakeha men, most participants in the past have been Maori men and, as such the programme incorporates tikanga Maori values and teachings.  In addition, the programme works with each participant's whanau within their existing cultural and social framework.

ACCESSIBLE FOR DISABLED

Yes - In accordance with existing Agency policies, all of our services, programmes and projects must be accessible to people living with disability.  The self-referred men's group operates from wheel-chair accessible premises and the contents and learning’s have been developed to accommodate people with learning disabilities and mental health disabilities.

PROJECT RATIONALE

The need has been established by the provision of the project for at least the last ten years and the ongoing demand for the project, evidenced by its continued provision to self-referred men.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

The community benefits in a variety of ways.  In the first instance the funding will assist our Agency to survive and continued the provision of services to the wider community.  In addition, the funding will ensure the continued operation of an effective preventative programme which contributes to the safety of the participants, their wider whanau/family and in turn, the wider community.  Finally, the funding assists our Agency in changing societal attitudes about violence in our community.  The success of the project will be measured by reference of the number of participants undertaking and completing it.

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

-     social cohesion, young people, community elders

 

By supporting people impacted by family violence, we contribute directly to social cohesion.   Auckland Council acknowledges that “safe, healthy and flourishing families and whānau are critical to thriving communities and achieving Auckland’s vision” (http://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/EN/planspoliciesprojects/plansstrategies/Councilstrategies/Documents/thrivingcommunitiesstrategicframework.pdf).

 

We work to ensure individual and whanau well-being by supporting them to develop healthy connections to and relationships with others and empowering them to participate fully in their communities.  Our community based awareness and educational activities are designed to positively influence social attitudes towards violence and healthy relationships, creating a safer community committed to the welfare of all of its members.

PROJECT SUMMARY

PROJECT TITLE

Restoration Kate

PROJECT SUMMARY

Youth will benefit from being engaged in structured activities and educational programmes that will give them a sense of accomplishment and confidence. They will be taught leadership skills, team participation, and water safety through the exercise of heritage vessel sailing while exploring the Hauraki Gulf. Our programmes will facilitate young people to identify and value their individual strengths and uniqueness. They will be taught that they each have a purpose and role within their individual teams while on sailing voyages, as well within their community. We will promote social responsibility and community investment to the youth who participate.

FUNDING FOR

We are requesting funds to complete phase 1 of the project - the restoration of heritage vessel Kate so that she is sea worthy and prepared for compliance regulations, as well health and safety checks.

PROJECT LOCATION

This heritage vessel will act as an icon and reflect community values on Waiheke Island.

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

Waiheke Island requires more youth focused programmes and opportunities for personal development. WWS endeavours to reduce social disparities among youth that can result from boredom and social isolation. Youth who participate will benefit from being engaged in a strengths based service model that meet the guidelines of  the Youth Development Strategy of Aotearoa.  The wider community will benefit from youth who are engaged, confident, and possess a sense of social responsibility. Our programmes will incorporate elements of the local maritime environment, promote recreation and sport, highlight the importance of the preservation of heritage vessels, and sailing.

Yes - The school buildings will be accessible to the disabled

PROJECT RATIONALE

We have spoken with the local community, we have held monthly meetings for the community and the response has been extremely positive. We have had the community register their interest in the school and register the children that will attend and we have more than enough children to start.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

We have a large amount of families within the community who are very keen for their children to be educated within the Rudolf Steiner system; this is evident from the great support that the Local Steiner Kindergarten on the Island receives. Many of these families are very keen to have their children continue with this education but cannot afford to send children over to Auckland to the two schools there. We will have achieved this when the school is open and the children are being educated

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

-     social cohesion, the environment, young people

Our vision for the children of Waiheke, is to establish a primary school where children can continue their journey with Steiner education. A school where the whole child, the head, the heart and the hands are given equal importance. An education that embraces the outdoors and the natural world as a classroom and an education that helps children become well balanced, creative compassionate human beings.

PROJECT RATIONALE

I have owned the property since 1998 and seen minimal native reestablishment occuring naturally, due to kikuyu and ramnus infestation. Its strategic location within the gulf islands and other reserves would make this a valuable and sheltered forest.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

Improvement to environment and visual landscape in the inner gulf, viewed by locals and boatees.  Improved fresh water quality in the stream. With Rakino being rodent free this would become a breeding zone for native birdlife that would enhance Waiheke.

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

-     social cohesion, the environment, recreation and sport

 

Join with other landowners in West Bay and the adjacent paper road, to rebuild natural habitat to regain ecological integrity and prevent further erosion. Also enhancement of human well being.  As a popular harbour near to Auckland, this is a mecca for Auckland boatees seeking a natural environment.  The natural features of this bay are highly attractive, however the landscape is currently degraded and at further risk of erosion.

helping individual clients our aim is not to take over the management of a client’s situation, but instead to work alongside them,

helping them to help themselves and providing pathways for resolving their issues. This improves social cohesion and provides support for vulnerable sectors such as young people and elders. .

Rakino Island West Bay Wetlands Restoration

PROJECT SUMMARY

A silted and degraded wetlands area sits on the boundary of properties owned by Thomas and Hawkins (the applicants).

PROJECT RATIONALE

West Bay Rakino island is the centre of an environmental renaissance. DOC Reserves have been planted; a nursery constructed to meet the Islands anticipated native plant requirements and most recently the owners forming the West Bay land mass have united to plant their land holdings. Restoration of the wetland forming part this area is a logical progression.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

Community will benefit indirectly as will the Gulf Island Reserves.

That will be evidenced by the improvement in bio-diversity and hopefully a water supply during the summer months.

A lack of water supply has seen the migration of birds and insects at the height of summer.

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

-     the environment

 

Project intends to reconfigure a wetlands area which has been silted and generally degraded. A ready water supply during the summer months will support flora and fauna on an Island where few reservoirs if any exist and potentially provide a water source for the nearby community nursery.

Provision of service

PROJECT SUMMARY

The provision of our core services: one-off and ongoing budgeting advice, advocacy, debt repayment negotiation and management, financial literacy education, counselling, food assistance. These are ongoing services that we have been providing in the Waiheke Community for over 25 years.

FUNDING FOR

We are requesting funding for accommodation costs. We run our service in a house that we rent at market rates. The premises are perfect for our purposes - they are private and comfortable/non-threatening, which is very important as many of our clients are experiencing high levels of stress. However renting in a commercial zone is a significant annual expense for us.

PROJECT RATIONALE

Over our 25 years in operation, the need for our services has steadily increased. This is reflected in our annual statistics which we collate for the NZFFBS. The cost of living on Waiheke has risen dramatically over the last ten years, however wages and benefits have remained relatively static. The number of people who access our foodbank is testimony to this. The number of referrals that we receive from other services is another measure of the need for our work.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

Our work results in healthier, more resilient families and individuals, who are financially stable and literate and thus can participate in, and contribute to, our diverse and vibrant community. We know we are achieving good outcomes for our clients by the rate of success of our interventions. We collect both qualitative and quantitative data to assess this. We are also a fundamental part of the social service network which serves the community very responsively and effectively. We have excellent relationships of referral and collaboration with the other organisations that make up this network.

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

-     social cohesion, young people, community elders

 

Our services benefit the whole community, but in particular young people through our financial literacy programme, and elders because the biggest demographic group we see suffering the effects of poverty are elderly people who rent and live alone. We contribute to social cohesion by increasing the ability of our clients to participate in the community.

PROJECT SUMMARY

PROJECT TITLE

Waiheke Walking Festival 2016

PROJECT SUMMARY

The 2016 Waiheke Walking Festival will take place over nine days in November. It is a completely free event and includes approximately 50 guided walks over this time. There are a wide range of walks to suit the entire age range and interests of our community and our walking visitors. In addition, 2015 sees the inaugural Te Ara Hura loop walk - five days to walk the entire 100km Te Ara Hura loop which is a fantastic opportunity to promote this wonderful public resource. We aim to repeat this in 2016.

FUNDING FOR

We seek funding for the coordination and marketing costs associated with delivering and promoting the 2016 Waiheke Walking Festival.

PROJECT LOCATION

Across Waiheke Island and nearby gulf islands

PROJECT DATES:

12/11/2016 - 20/11/2016

PROMOTION OF EVENT

Yes - 15000 printed brochures, 1000 e-newsletter database, event website, event Facebook page, listings with a large number of event calenders including Our Auckland and Eventfinder, paid and unpaid advertising editorial in local, Auckland, national and international media.

LOCAL BOARD ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

We are always proud to acknowledge the Waiheke Local Board's support of the event;

 - the WLB logo is included in all printed and electronic promotional material - brochures and advertising etc.

- the WLB is thanked at the start of every walk and at the opening and closing of the event

- we always ensure a Festival Facebook page presence for the WLB and make public thank you announcements via the Community Notice Board Facebook page and in thank you ads that occur in local newspapers after the event 

- WLB members are encouraged to attend and speak at the opening and closing events

ACTIVE PARTICIPANTS

2500 individual walk registrations

AUDIENCE SIZE

1000 (most people will do multiple walks)

MAORI OUTCOMES

Yes - We continue, in association with Auckland Council staff, to progress our relationship with Ngati Paoa and other local iwi to enrich the quality of the Festival with a stronger focus on the cultural history and stories of Waiheke and surrounds. Our strong hope is that 2016 will see walks across the Ngati Paoa farm block in the Eastern End of Waiheke, with the Festival supporting Ngati Paoa guides who are able to share important stories of the land.

ACCESSIBLE FOR DISABLED

Yes - In 2016, as with every Waiheke Walking Festival we ensure that there are low impact walks that are suitable for people who have a disability that may limit their capacity to walk or participate in regular walk events. We always create a route that is flat and we have high volunteer/walking ratios to support those individuals who would like to participate but who may require a little bit of extra support.

PROJECT RATIONALE

The Waiheke Walking Festival was established by Auckland Council in 2010 and the governance of the event was passed to the Hauraki Gulf Conservation Trust in 2012. The Waiheke Walking Festival is a fantastic vehicle for promoting sustainable tourism by showcasing Waiheke Island as a walking destination in its own right. The Festival allows us to demonstrate to our visitors and our community, the incredible conservation work that is taking place on the Island, and grow the active support we have amongst our community to protect and enhance our natural environment.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

The Waiheke Walking Festival encourages our community and our visitors to be active, to enjoy our Island in a sustainable way, to utilise our public walkways and to actively participate in the conservation of our Island. We know that we achieve these as we have capacity walks during every one of the nine days of the Festival and a lot of happy visitors and locals who look forward to this event as a highlight of their year.

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

-     social cohesion, the environment, recreation and sport

 

The Waiheke Walking Festival is a completely free event offering 46 guided walks over nine days, with walks that encourage families and individuals of all ages and abilities to enjoy the public walkways and private land that are available during the Festival each year. The Festival has a strong conservation focus and one of the strengths of the Festival is how it brings our community together, volunteers and walkers alike in a united way to enjoy and showcase our beautiful Island to our walking visitors.

PROJECT SUMMARY

PROJECT TITLE

Restoration of native plants to Newton Reserve cliff sides

PROJECT SUMMARY

Removal of large tracts of invasive weeds, in particular boneseed, honeysuckle, agapanthus, rhamnus, and pampas, from the coastal cliffs in Newton Reserve, and replanting those areas with drought-resistant native species that will survive the north-westerly winds that hit those cliffs for the summer and autumn months. •    The cliff sides are extremely steep and hard to get to, and require  licensed contractors who are registered with Auckland Council as able to provide weed control and planting services via abseiling. Heron Weed Control has the required licences and is registered with Auckland Council for this work, and provided such work in 2015 to successfully remove large tracts of boneseed and rhamnus and plant 300 plants in two selected cliffside areas in the Reserve.

FUNDING FOR

Removal of weeds and planting of natives, as described above.

PROJECT LOCATION

Newton Reserve cliff sides, Little Oneroa to Fisherman's Rock

PROJECT DATES:

10/05/2016 - 17/06/2016

PROMOTION OF EVENT

Yes - We will ensure that the project is well advertised to the local community through articles in the Gulf News and Marketplace.

LOCAL BOARD ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

By telling everyone we know, as well as through the newspaper articles.

ACCESSIBLE FOR DISABLED

No -

PROJECT RATIONALE

We have kayaked in the area below the cliffs and walked through the areas that are accessible without abseiling. the extent of weed infestation is very apparent from the beach and sea below the cliffs.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

In addition to the intrinsic benefit of restoring the land area to native bush, the new plants will increase bid life in the area, and will also increase the stability of the cliffs and make the areas safer for walkers and kayakers, as well as enhancing the visual appearance of Oneroa Bay for everyone.

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

-     the environment, recreation and sport

 

Newton Reserve was originally dense native podocarp forest with a wetland and extensive coastal cliffs, then turned into sheep farm. Our goal is to restore the coastal cliffs, forest and wetland to their original biodiversity of flora and fauna, and enhance the beauty of the Reserve for locals and visitors. We align our work to Council’s plans for walking tracks. This project promote further natural regeneration of the native bush and the biodiversity of native fauna. The project will also enhance the attractiveness of Oneroa Bay.

PROJECT SUMMARY

PROJECT TITLE

Autism New Zealand Incorporated Auckland Branch Operating Costs

PROJECT SUMMARY

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for people with Autism and those with associated conditions, their family/whanau and those who support them. Autism New Zealand Inc provides information, support, training, advocacy, support groups, library resources and parent education programmes inclusive of extended whanau.

FUNDING FOR

General operating costs for the Auckland Branch which provides services throughout the whole of Auckland

PROJECT LOCATION

Throughout the whole of Auckland

PROJECT DATES:

01/07/2015 - 30/06/2016

PROMOTION OF EVENT

Yes - We create/distribute a monthly e-newsletter to our members and networks. We also have events on World Autism Awareness day, our Annual appeal and have stands at local events such as Brain Day and Transition Expo 2015 to raise awareness of ASD and offer services to the community. We also email our networks with updates/invites to our training/education programmes and regularly present at local community organisations.

LOCAL BOARD ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

In our monthly e-newsletter which will include a logo. We also regularly acknowledge funders at our events.

ACTIVE PARTICIPANTS

AUDIENCE SIZE

MAORI OUTCOMES

Yes - We have created a Maori strategy in consultation with our local kaumatua which will be introduced in December 2015. This strategy follows the principles of whanau ora whereby the services we provide will encompass the whole whanau and also take into consideration tikanga Maori.

ACCESSIBLE FOR DISABLED

Yes - Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is classed as a disability and therefore all our services are provided to individuals, whanau and professionals within the disability community. We also work collaboratively with other organisations in the disability sector and the wider community.

PROJECT RATIONALE

The rate of ASD is estimated at 1-88 which is an increase on previous years. Correspondingly we have seen an increase in the number of enquiries and referrals received for the Auckland area for training/education programmes and outreach services. We also receive a lot of feedback from individuals/whanau talking about how isolated they have felt so to enable us to address this need we have expanded the areas in which we deliver our training/education programmes.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

Individuals/whanau and the wider community will benefit from our services as they will receive information, training, education and support to navigate the health & disability systems and community life. Individuals/whanau and professionals will also benefit from our services being more accessible throughout Auckland and our services also cover all age groups. This will ensure that individuals/whanau become more independent and engaged, adding value to the community. It will also help raise much needed awareness, help reduce stress for parents and families, reduce isolation and assist individuals and whanau to navigate the systems in a more seamless manner.

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

ORAKEI LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

1.   an active and healthy local community, enabling residents and community groups to have a voice 

 

Our ASD outreach services, support groups, youth and adult support services, information services and training & education programmes enable individuals/whanau to navigate the health & disability systems and community life in a more seamless manner. Our services are available to all ages, Auckland-wide and we are establishing satellite offices/venues to make our services more accessible. We also work collaboratively with other organisations towards the best outcomes for individuals/whanau, professionals and the wider community. All this, reduces stress for individuals/whanau, reduces isolation and enables them to become more confident and independent to participate in the community.

PROJECT SUMMARY

PROJECT TITLE

Shifting Community Youth and  Culture through Applied Theatre Practice workshops

PROJECT SUMMARY

Mind over Manner will present two carefully structured two-hour workshops for parents, families, friends and community that are often in genuine need. These participants are in close association with youth who experience sensory discomfort, high anxiety or temperamental responses to their environment and social situations.  Responses are generally non-compliant and wide-ranging; from passive rudeness, demanding neediness, shutting down, etc.

The Mind over Manner team uses theatre practitioners to impart knowledge relating to the brain, sensory processing differences and teaches carefully cultivated methods for practical use in response to these behavioural difficulties. This objective understanding and these new skills inevitably bring about more positive outcomes and inclusiveness for the cognitive-diverse youth, the families and the support systems within the community.

FUNDING FOR

Two workshops

PROJECT LOCATION

Local Theatres in Central, West, East, South and North Auckland

PROJECT DATES:

10/11/2016 - 10/11/2016

PROMOTION OF EVENT

 

LOCAL BOARD ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

The logo will be on all email and website flyers, all advertising in local community papers and in the New Zealand Psychologist

newsletter

A verbal acknowledgement will be given at the introduction of each workshop.

The local board representatives will be invited to view the workshops.

No photos or filming will take place in respect of the private disclosure that can take place.

MAORI OUTCOMES

 Yes - In 2014 I was funded to study in the Black Hills, South Dakota with Reclaiming Youth International. 
Based on the recent study I did with Native American Sioux people and top psychologists in the US, Larry Brentro , Temple Grandin (Autism and Brain Expert),I discovered a strong alliance with Maori and Sioux peoples. 
Both cultures work with a concept of inclusiveness, belonging, employing the concepts of acceptance rather than blame, inclusion rather than ostracism with our marginalised troubled youth. 
In 2014 I furthered my training to become a Response Abilities Pathways Trainer (course attended by many Maori) MoM employs 
these cultural concepts which are vital for all communities that reside alongside each other in New Zealand. 

ACCESSIBLE FOR DISABLED

Yes - The Local Theatre or venue will need to have wheelchair access. A Theatre is preferable as it fully supports the "Active Reality” we create using theatre practitioners and participants. 
There is a Mind over Manner support person present amongst workshop participants to cater for any person who may 
emotionally identify with some of the familial difficulties the theatre practitioners present. While this has not happened to date it 
is a precaution that Mind over Manner always ensures is in place. 
As part of the "Care Plan" we provide a supper to allow participants to "offload" what they have experienced in the workshop 
and how it relates to their families and lives. 
For participants who may experience sensory overload they are given the option to visually or auditorally avoid any aspects that 
could become too overwhelming for them.

PROJECT RATIONALE

Mind over Manner has run ongoing workshops in the Waitemata, North Shore and West Auckland areas that clearly demonstrate the community need. ( refer to attached letter from parent)

The need has been articulated by those who participate in our workshops. Beyond the immediate participants at our workshops, service providers, Police, Child Youth and Family and other affiliated agencies all testify to the growing statistics of troubled youth. Mind over Manner’s communication with Altogether Autism and parent to Parent has emphasised the high needs for intensive workshops and dialogue required for marginalised families. This request would provide workshops to cater to 80 participants.

 

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

We provide a platform for people of diverse ethnicities and culture to gain an increased perspective and holistic understanding of the challenges they face. The workshops reassure parents they are not alone and participation in Active-Reality exercises allow creative space for renewed decision making, re-hearing principles and practical tools to de-escalate a hostile event. By using an interactive Applied Performance practice, families and community get to hear or see other potential ideas and outcomes. Significantly participants get to experience an inside view of a teenager’s turmoil or fear. Please refer to a clip on the website’s homepage: http://www.mindovermanner.co.nz

 

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

-     Young people

 

Mind over Manner is a newly registered charity that aims to strengthen parental and community support for youth with 
cognitive and cultural diversity. 
Mind over Manner delivers specialist workshop sessions to engage and encourage community and parents to increase 
their capacity for effective communication with teenagers that learn, think and respond differently. 

Mind over Manner will normalise terminology and perceptions of disability that surround cognitive differences (eg Aspergers , ADHD etc.) 

The Mind over Manner team embraces a creative strengths-based approach that is rooted in a familial 
context that transitions out to the community. 

MoM’s workshops rely on collaboration and participation.

$6,364.40

Would a smaller grant be of assistance and if so how much

Yes - MoM would prefer the fees for the theatre practitioners, facilitator, project coordinator, support person, company running costs .Without these workshops cannot take place. 
It is preferable to present the workshop in a theatre for the "Active Reality" experience. This venue makes a huge difference to the privacy the audience gets by being separated. If this was not possible we could do the workshop in a studio even if it was less effective in its outcomes. 
Parents don’t pay, it is essential self-care is not marginalised for financial reasons as they invest any spare money they have in their child’s needs.

19 November 2015

 

 

Auckland Transport Report - November 2015

 

File No.: CP2015/23773

 

  

 

 

Purpose

1.       The purpose of the report is to respond to local board requests on transport-related matters and to provide information to Elected Members about Auckland Transport activities in the local board area.

Executive Summary

2.       This report covers matters of specific application and interest to the Waiheke Local Board and its community; matters of general interest relating to Auckland Transport activities or the transport sector; and Auckland Transport media releases for the information of the board and community.

3.       In particular; this report provides an update on;

·   Double Decker Bus Update

·   Rakino Wall Update

·   HOP Card Price Change

·   Local Consultations

·   Media

 

 

Recommendation/s

That the Waiheke Local Board:

a)      Receive the Auckland Transport Report – November 2015

 

 

Discussion

Double Decker Bus Update

4.       Following an approach from Waiheke bus, Auckland Transport commenced an investigation to upgrade 2 bus routes on Waiheke Island, to accommodate double decker buses.

5.       Auckland Transport Metro staff briefed the Waiheke Local Board in May 2015 on these plans.

6.       The outcomes of the investigation provided as estimate cost of physical works in the order of $950,000.00, with other un-priced works also needing to be conducted by Vector and Chorus.

7.       This cost far exceeded Auckland transport’s expectation and the financial benefits to Auckland Transport were difficult to quantify.

8.       This does not down play operational benefits such as congestion relief at Matiatia, however Auckland Transport did not have specific plans or any budget line for this work.

9.       Auckland Transport engaged with Waiheke Bus over the cost, (as the short term benefits from use of Double Decker buses would be realised by them) however Waiheke Bus were not able to justify contribution to this expense.

10.     As a result of this, this project has been put on hold but may be reviewed in the future years.

 

Rakino Wall Update

11.     In early 2009 it was identified that the seawall at Sandy Bay, Rakino Island was in need of repairs and a minor extension.

12.     The original seawall was built in or around 1984, by the then Waiheke County Council, in order to support the adjacent road reserve and grass verge.

13.     In total the seawall is approximately 88 meters long. The southern end of the structure adjoins the Sandy Bay wharf and runs between the road reserve and the beach.

14.     By March 2009 , the then Auckland City Council, applied to the Auckland Regional Council for permission to do the required repairs and extension under a Discretionary Activity Application,  which was subsequently granted; permit # 36709, with an expiry date of 30 September 2015. 

15.     A majority of the maintenance works were completed in 2009, with the extension being completed in 2014.

16.     Later in 2014 the residents of Rakino approached the Waiheke Local Board and Auckland Transport, lobbying for more work to be carried out, as they felt a major storm would completely undermine the wall and road infrastructure.

17.     By April 2015 Downer Contractors, on behalf of Auckland Transport, completed further works, as described in the original permit # 36709.

18.     From start to finish, throughout the process the works were reviewed by an Auckland Council’s Consent and Compliance team member. Those works are now completed.  

 

HOP Card Price Change

19.     In 2012 the HOP card was introduced to the public transport system, with the original cost of $10.00, including GST, however in order to encourage uptake Auckland Transport discounted it to $5.00.

20.     The actual cost of the card is $8.54, excluding GST, so Auckland Transport has been funding the short fall to date.

21.     With over 600,000 HOP cards sold this short fall is a considerable cost to Auckland Transport.

22.     Now that it is considered, most customers will have a HOP card, as of the 17 December 2015, Auckland Transport will remove the discount price, at which time the cost of a new HOP card will be $10.00.

 

Local Consultations

23.     Consultation documents for the following proposals have been provided to the Waiheke Local Board for its feedback. As the Board’s transport portfolio holders provide feedback on the Board’s behalf, the material below is included for general information purposes only.

24.     There were no Local Consultations this month.

 

Media

Let’s Carpool Campaign

25.     Auckland Transport is running a public campaign in November to encourage carpooling.

26.     The key objective is to reduce the amount of single vehicle occupancy trips into central Auckland by encouraging people to give carpooling a go and to visit the Let’s Carpool website to register.

27.     The target audience is people between 20 and 45 years working in Central Auckland.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

28.     The Board’s views will be incorporated during consultation on any proposed schemes.

Māori impact statement

29.     No specific issues with regard to the Maori Impact Statement are triggered by this report.

General

30.     The activities detailed in this report do not trigger the Significance Policy. All programmes and activities are within budget/in line with the council’s annual plan and LTP documents and there are no legal or legislative implications arising from the activities detailed in this report.

Implementation

31.     All proposed schemes are subject to prioritisation, funding and consultation.

PT Operations

9.   Highlights for the quarter

·    AT Metro’s 12 month rolling patronage record passed the 80 million mark in August with rail services exceeding 14 million.

·    Train services had record performance on the network.  September 7th recorded the best performance ever for a single business weekday, with 97.6% punctuality and 99.2% reliability and only four cancellations out of a total of 500.  Statistics also showed 100% service delivery and no cancellations on the Pukekohe diesel shuttle.

Road Design and Development

10.  Te Atatu Road Improvements

Underground services relocation works continue within the road berm of Edmonton Road and Flanshaw Road. Removal of trees, hedges and the like is underway, in accordance with the resource consent; this is site clearance in preparation for both the road widening and the agreed property works.

 

11.  Jennys Road Construction – Great Barrier Island

This road was established as an outcome of an Environment Court decision.  The road has been designed as a single lane road with passing bays. Stage 1 was completed in May 2014, and Stage 2 commenced in October 2014.  Physical works and the final walkover with the contractor have been completed.

 

12.  Redoubt Road-Mill Road Corridor Improvements

The project on Redoubt Road provides for four lanes from SH1 to Murphys Road, and includes bus priority lane, cycle lanes and a 60km/h speed limit, and signals and bus priority lane at the Hollyford Drive/Redoubt Road intersection.  The hearing has now been completed and the commissioners’ decision is expected within one to two months.

 

 

Services

13.  Driver Licensing Challenge

Young Driver safety is a high priority in the national Safer Journeys strategy, and Auckland Young Driver death and serious injury (DSI) rates make up 30% of the regions DSI crashes.  This issue is exacerbated by the high proportion of unlicensed young drivers in the region.  An inter-agency Co-Design Lab was founded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment that explores ways to improve access to driver licensing.  AT is part of the team along with ACC, Ministry of Education, Auckland Council, Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC) and Otara youth based at the Otara's Crosspower youth centre.  The Co-Design team will engage with Maori and Pasifika youth at Crosspower where over 250 youth attend each week.  The initial stage of this four month project will end in November with recommendations to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.

 

14.  Primary Schools Lead Teacher Workshop

Over the past five years there has been an increase in deaths and serious injuries (DSI) for 5-10 year old pedestrians during weekdays in peak traffic hours.  The Travelwise team looked to address this issue at a recent primary schools lead teacher workshop in the CBD.  Seventy teachers attended the workshop by rail to explore ‘Transporting our Students into the Future’ and develop curriculum programmes that would support safer travel for students and increased use of active transport (Public Transport PT, Walking and Cycling) options to help reduce congestion.

 

15.  Travel Demand (2014/15 Year)

The Commute travel planning programme has a focus on engagement with commuters and businesses this year.  This quarter has seen the development of a campaign to promote travel choice which will be launched in October.  A focus has been the development of travel demand plans for the Devonport Peninsula, Albany Highway and City Rail Link, and implementation of these plans is underway.

 

16.  Route Optimisation

The regional Route Optimisation is underway, which forms part of the programme for Network Optimisation, including traffic signal improvements, minor changes to the road network and the inclusion of transit lanes, freight lanes and trial of Dynamic lanes.

 

 

Road Corridor Delivery

17.  Key Highlights

In the 2015/2016 financial year, AT is planning to deliver 37.7 km of pavement rehabilitation, 480.1 km of resurfacing (which includes 88.9 km of hotmix and 391.2 km of chip-sealing), 75.7 km of footpath renewals and 82.7 km of kerb and channel replacement.  This represents a total of 676 km or around 9% of work on AT’s 7,300km network.  Table 1 below outlines this work in more detail.

 

Table 1: Progress against Asset Renewal Targets

 

18.  The new Streetlight maintenance and renewal contracts commenced on 1 August 2015.  There are now four contracts across the region with one dedicated contract for the Hauraki Gulf Islands.  The new contractors are Downer (Central and South), Electrix (North and West) and NorthPower (HGI).  Tenders have also been called for the supply of 8,000 LED luminaires to replace existing 70W HPS lamps on the network in the 2015/2016 financial year.

19.  AT’s second Asset Management Plan (AMP) covering the period 2015-2018 has been published and is available to download from the AT website.

20.  Monitoring of Temporary Traffic Management (TTM) at work sites is continuing to ensure compliance with the approved traffic management plans and to identify opportunities for improvement.  The average percentage of low risk sites for Quarter 1 is 96%*[1] (The target is 90%)

 

Fig 1:  Compliance with approved traffic management plans

 

21.  The Corridor Access Request (CAR) team continues to process around 1,300 applications per month.  These requests are for network operators from the water and telecommunication industry to access and maintain their assets sitting within the road corridor.  Access is also sought by private operators and individuals who need to access the road network to undertake activities such as private water connections etc.

Annual Plan 2016/2017

 

File No.: CP2015/24301

 

  

 

 

Purpose

1.       This report requests that the Waiheke Local Board:

a)   provides formal feedback on regional issues:

i.          the Uniform Annual General Charge (UAGC)

ii.          the Interim Transport Levy (ITL)

iii.         Māori land rates

iv.        a review of rural rates

b)   agrees key advocacy issues

c)   recommends any local targeted rate proposals

d)   recommends any Business Improvement District (BID) targeted rates.

Executive Summary

2.       Legislation governing the Annual Plan process has changed, and there is no longer the requirement to produce a draft Annual Plan.  Instead,  the council will be producing a consultation document which will cover:

a)   any significant or material changes proposed to the Long-term Plan 2015-2025 (LTP)

b)   content relating to local board agreements.

3.       Consultation on the Annual Plan 2016/2017 will take place in February and March of 2016.

4.       This report seeks input from local boards on a range of annual plan related matters including feedback on regional financial policy issues and advocacy issues, and recommendations as to any local targeted rate or BID targeted rate proposals.  These will be considered by the Governing Body prior to finalising consultation topics.

5.       Local board views on these matters will also be considered in discussions between the local boards and the Governing Body on 27 and 30 November, prior to the Mayoral Proposal.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Waiheke Local Board:

a)      provides any views it may have on regional issues (that is, the UAGC, ITL, Māori land rates and rural rates) for the Governing Body to consider.

b)      agrees key advocacy issues.

c)      recommends local targeted rate proposals or BID targeted rates (if any) for consultation.

 

Comments

Regional issues

6.       At its meeting on 28 October, the Finance and Performance Committee considered information and analysis on potentially changing the UAGC, ITL, Māori land rates and rural rates.  It resolved to recommend that the council should consult on all of these issues, as part of the process for developing the Annual Plan 2016/2017. 

7.       A summary of these issues and the Finance and Performance Committee recommendations is provided in Attachment A. The detailed reports, setting out the information and analysis provided to the Finance and Performance Committee, can be found here:

http://infocouncil.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/Open/2015/10/FIN_20151028_AGN_6098_AT.PDF

8.       Briefing sessions were held for local board members at the beginning of November.  At these briefings local board members were provided with the detailed reports, and information on the implications of changing the UAGC, ITL, Māori land rates and rural rates.

Advocacy issues

9.       The Local Board may also wish to agree any advocacy priorities for discussion with the Governing Body.

Local targeted rate and BID targeted rate proposals

10.     Any new local targeted rates and/or BIDs must be consulted on before they can be implemented. Local boards are required to agree any new proposals for consultation.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

11.     Local Board feedback is being sought in this report. 

12.     Local Boards will also have further opportunities to provide information and views as council continues through the annual plan process.

Māori impact statement

13.     The detailed reports provided to the Finance and Performance Committee have information and analysis on the impacts on Māori regarding proposed financial policies.

14.     Many local board decisions are of importance to and impact on Māori. Local board agreements and the annual plan are important tools that enable and can demonstrate council’s responsiveness to Māori. Local board plans, which were developed in 2014 through engagement with the community including Māori, form the basis of local priorities.There is a need to continue to build relationships between local boards and iwi, and where relevant the wider Māori community. Ongoing conversations will assist local boards and Māori to understand each other’s priorities and issues. This in turn can influence and encourage Māori participation in council’s decision-making processes.

Implementation

15.     Feedback from the local boards will be summarised and provided in full to:

·    inform the Mayoral Proposal process,

·    the Governing Body for consideration at its meeting on 17 December on consultation topics for the Annual Plan 2016/2017.

16.     The Governing Body will adopt Annual Plan consultation material in early February 2016.
