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 Manurewa Local Board adopted its grants programme on 01 April 2015 (see Attachment A).

5.       The local board grants programme 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 Manurewa Local Board will operate two local grant rounds and four quick response rounds for this financial year.

7.       The new community grant programmes have been extensively advertised through the new council grant webpage, local board webpages, local board e-newsletters and Facebook pages, council publications, radio, local newspapers and community networks. Staffs have also conducted a series of public workshops in local board areas, which have been attended by approximately 1000 people across the Auckland region.

8.       The Manurewa Local Board has set a total community grants budget of $184,000.00 for the 2015/2016 financial year. To date a total of $48,311.50 has been allocated from the community grants budget, leaving a total of $135,688.50.

9.       There were six applications received for this quick response round, requesting a total of $26,433.00.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

10.     Local boards are responsible for the decision-making and allocation of local board community grants. The Manurewa 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.

11.     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

12.     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.

 

Implementation

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

14.     Following the Manurewa Local Board allocating funding for round two of the quick response grants, Commercial and Finance staff will notify the applicants of the local board’s decision upon receipt of the official minutes.

Manurewa Local Board

Scope for local dog access rule review

 

File No.: CP2015/23117

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       To determine the timing and scope of the Manurewa Local Board review of local dog access rules.

Executive Summary

2.       In 2012, Auckland Council’s Governing Body made the Dog Management Bylaw and the Policy on Dogs. The governing body delegated the review of the dog access rules on local parks, beach and foreshore areas to local boards.

3.       The governing body delegation requires local boards to review their beach and foreshore dog access rules. The Manurewa Local Board has full discretion on whether to review other local dog access rules, including those on local parks.

4.       The governing body has established a standard process to assist local boards with the review. The current review process started in September 2015 and is due to end in October 2016.

5.       The Manurewa Local Board’s decisions on the review scope is the first step in determining what aspects of dog access rules are reviewed and consulted on in 2016.

6.       Staff recommend that a review of the local dog access rules be deferred until 2016/17 (Option A2) as it aligns with the programme of works for the review of the regional parks (including the Auckland Botanic Gardens).This would reduce confusion for the general public and allow for a more integrated approach to be taken to the review of the dog access rules within the local board area.  

7.       If the board confirms the review of the local dog access rules in 2015/16 it is recommended that a review of local dog access rules incorporate a targeted review of parks (Option B2), a high level review to identify practical “under control off-leash” parks (Option B3). This would strike the most appropriate balance between implementing the Auckland Council Policy on Dogs 2012, the complexity and scope of the review and the resource required to undertake that review.   

 

Recommendation/s

That the Manurewa Local Board:

Either

a)         confirms the deferral the review of the local dog access until 2016/2017 (Option A2)

Or

a)         confirm the review of its local dog access rules in 2015/16 (Option A1)

b)         confirm the inclusion of the following additional matters within the scope of the review:

i.           confirms a targeted review of park rules (Option B2)

ii.          confirm  a high level review to identify practical “under control off-leash” parks (Option B3) 

 

Discussion

Responsibilities

 

8.       In 2012, the governing body made the Policy on Dogs, and delegated the review of the dog access rules on local beaches, foreshore and parks to local boards. This includes a requirement to review all local beach and foreshore areas by a date determined by the local board (resolution number GB/2012/157).

9.       Responsibility for areas of regional significance (including regional parks) and Tūpuna Maunga are delegated to the Auckland Council Parks, Sport and Recreation Committee and the Tūpuna Maunga o Tāmaki Makaurau Authority respectively. The Regulatory and Bylaws Committee has overall responsibility for the Policy on Dogs 2012 and region-wide dog access rules (e.g. council playgrounds, sports surfaces, roads, car  and boat parking areas, cemeteries, campgrounds and holiday parks).

Process and funding

10.     In August and September 2013, local boards were consulted on the level of priority for the local board dog access rule review within their local board areas. As a result of this prioritisation, the local board is scheduled to commence its review of local dog access rules in 2015, with any changes effective from Labour Weekend 2016.

11.     In order to facilitate the local board’s review of their dog access rules and take advantage of economies of scale, a regionally funded ‘standard process’ has been established. The ‘standard process’ timeline is structured around council’s annual dog registration process which takes place in June each year.  The Dog Control Act requires all dog owners to be notified of any proposed changes to the dog access rule and to follow the special consultative procedure under the Local Government Act 2002 (see Attachment B). Therefore, the standard process for this review consists of the following phases and timeline:

·        Summer 2015/16: staff will gather information and community views to inform the development of proposed changes

·        April/May 2016: proposed changes will be adopted by the local board

·        June 2016: proposed changes are notified for consultation to align with the dog registration process

·        August and September 2016: public hearings and deliberations will be held and a final decision is made.

12.     The regional funding provides for the review of beach and foreshore dog access rules, generic public notification initiatives, and generic signage to implement decisions. These activities include:

·    desktop research

·    site visits (beach and foreshore areas, and high-use parks only)

·    on-line survey of beach and foreshore areas

·    internal stakeholder engagement with staff from parks, animal management, and biodiversity

·    statutory consultation process (which includes; public notification, submission collation,  analysis and associated reporting,  staff support at hearings and deliberations).

13.     Local boards are required to resource:

·    any additional external workshops or engagement not included in the standard process outlined above

·    advertisements, media / social media releases not included in the standard process outlined above

·    the organisation and running of hearings

·    funding of non-standard signage

14.     Further details of the process and funding are provided in Attachment C.

Existing local board rules

15.     The existing dog access rules in the Manurewa Local Board area consist of both local dog access rules and regional dog access rules.

16.     The regional rules were considered as part of the 2012 review of the Auckland Council Policy on Dogs and apply to all local board areas. The regional rules take precedence over any local dog access rule and cover common public places such as playgrounds, sports fields, roads, car and boat  parking areas, cemeteries, campgrounds and holiday parks.   

17.     Within the Manurewa Local Board area, the following local access rules apply:

·        a general rule of under control off-leash across all parks, beaches and foreshores except where stated otherwise

·        time and season rule for Shallow Water Beach and adjoining parks

·        under control on a leash on parts of Totara Park, certain bushwalks, farm paddocks occupied by stock and Weymouth walkway

·        dog are prohibited from Wattle Farm Reserve for the protection of wildlife.

18.     The full list of dog access rules for the Manurewa Local Board area is included as Attachment A.

Options for the local board to consider

19.     The first decision for the local board is to consider when to commence the review of their local dog access rules.

20.     If the local board resolves to undertake a review of the local dog access rules in 2015/16, the local board then needs to consider what, if any, rules that relate to local parks will be reviewed (in addition to local beach and foreshore areas which is required).       

Start of review

Option A1: Commence the review of the local dog access rules in 2015/16 as scheduled

21.     This option involves commencing the local dog access review in 2015/16 as currently scheduled. Under the delegations to the local board, the local board must review their beach and foreshore areas.

22.     As part of the beach and foreshore areas review, the local board must consider whether or not the regional time and season standard is appropriate to be applied to each beach and foreshore area and the provision of under control off-leash at all times dog access areas.

23.     The benefits of this option are:

·        allows for the implementation of dog access rules that are in keeping with the Auckland Council Policy on Dogs 2012, community preferences, and wildlife considerations by October 2016 as currently scheduled

·        allows for the consideration of access rules that are simpler to follow and enforce on the ground

·        the Auckland Council Policy on Dogs 2012 has created an expectation that the local board will consider whether or not the regional ‘time and season standard’ is appropriate to be applied to the beaches and foreshore areas within their jurisdiction.


24.     The disadvantages of this option are:

·        local board resource is required to investigate options or undertake formal special consultative process with hearings in 2015/16

·        additional workload for local board members during the 2016 pre-election period. 

Option A2: Defer the review of the local dog access until 2016/17

25.     This option involves deferring the local dog access review until 2016/17. Under this option staff will bring a second report to the local board in 2016/17 to consider what will be included within the scope of the local dog access review.

26.     It is noted that while the local board may defer the review of the local dog access rules, it is required by the delegations to undertake a review of their local access rules.

27.     The benefits of this option are:

·        no local board resource required to investigate options or undertake formal special consultative process with hearings in 2015/16

·        the review of the local dog access rules would be carried out at the same time as the Auckland Botanical Gardens is scheduled to be reviewed along with the other regional parks

·        no additional workload for local board members during the 2016 pre-election period. 

28.     The disadvantages of this option are:

·        resource required by local boards in 2016/17 may conflict with 2017 local board plan reviews

·        confusing or inappropriate dog access rules remain in effect until October 2017

·        the expectation of dog owners that the local board will consider whether or not the regional ‘time and season standard’ is appropriate to be applied to the beaches and foreshore areas within their jurisdiction from the review of the Auckland Council Policy on Dogs 2012.  

Recommendation

29.     Staff recommend deferring the review of the local dog access until 2016/17 (Option A2). This option would align the review with the program of works for the review of the regional parks. Under this option the local dog access rules would be reviewed at the same time as the Auckland Botanic Gardens which would reduce confusion for the general public and allow for a more integrated approach to be taken to the review of the dog access rules within the local board area.  

Scope of local dog access review

30.     As discussed above, where the local board resolves to undertake a review, the board must review the local beach and foreshore area rules but the board has the discretion as to whether or not the local board considers any rules that relate to local parks. The scope of the review may include either a single option or a mix of options:

·    target review of parks (Option B2)

·    a high level review to identify practical “under control off-leash” parks (Option B3), or

·    a detailed review of all local parks (Option B4).

Option B1: No review of local parks (status quo)

31.     This option involves only reviewing the beach and foreshore areas with no local park rules being considered as part of this review. 


32.     The benefits of this option are:

·        any consultation carried out around the beach and foreshore rules will be simpler with fewer issues for the public to consider

·        any changes or impacts of the changes to the local dog access rules will be limited to the beach and foreshore areas

·        no additional resource required to investigate or assess local parks. 

33.     The disadvantages of this option are:

·        retains the general rules that are often confusing and difficult to communicate and enforce 

·        does not allow for an integrated approach to be taken between beach and foreshore areas and the adjacent parks and reserves

·        does not allow for a review of high-use parks or areas of potential concern to the board or the community

·        does not allow for the identification of ‘practical’ under control off-leash areas within the local board schedules.    

 

Option B2: Targeted review of park rules

34.     This option involves three distinct parts; a review of the generic rules on all parks, a review of all parks adjacent to beaches and a review of all high-use parks or parks with identified concerns.  

35.     The review of the generic rules are technical reviews. The generic rules on parks with picnic areas, bush walks and stock are typically difficult to define on the ground and enforce.

36.     The review of the parks adjacent to beaches ensures an integrated approach to the activities within the coastal environment. 

37.     The review of the high-use parks and the parks with identified concerns is a targeted review of selected parks including site visits and internal workshops as required.   

38.     The benefits of this option are:

·        allows for an integrated approach to be taken to the review of the dog access rules on the beach and foreshore areas and the adjacent parks and reserves

·        a targeted review of high-use parks and parks with identified issues will limit areas affected by any changes in the dog access rules

·        a targeted review will limit the complexity of the review when compared to a wider review of all parks within the local board area

·        removes or replaces confusing rules that are difficult to communicate and enforce

·        will result in generic rules being replaced with site specific rules where appropriate which will be easier to understand and better provide for public safety and comfort or for the protection of wildlife

·        a targeted review allows for resources to be concentrated on areas with the greatest impact on users.

39.     The disadvantages of this option are:

·        may result in parks adjacent to the beach and foreshore having different access rules than other local parks

·        may result in high-use parks and other local parks having different dog access rules

·        will increase the complexity of the issues considered as part of the review

·        changes to the access rules will affect a number of parks given the general nature of the generic access rule

·        may be perceived by dog owners as a reduction in dog access in popular or high amenity parks.

Option B3: High level review to identify practical “under control off-leash” parks

40.     This option involves a desktop study of all parks to identify the practical under control off-leash areas and list them within Schedule 2 of the local dog access rules. The intent behind this option is to be able to provide a list of existing locations where dog owners have the space and access to be able to exercise their dogs under control off-leash. 

41.     This option would allow the local board to consider whether or not the existing default under control off-leash rule is appropriate for the local board area. 

42.     The benefits of this option are:

·        identification and listing of “under control off-leash” areas/parks that have sufficient characteristics (e.g. size and shape) for undertaking typical under control off-leash activities (e.g. throwing a ball, etc) which will be easier to communicate and understand

·        allows for a consideration of whether or not the existing default under control off-leash rule is appropriate for the local board area.

43.     The disadvantages of this option are:

·        the inclusion of a number of additional parks within the consultation documents will increase the complexity of the documents

·        it may be perceived by dog owners as (or if the default dog access rule is changed may result in) a reduction in under control off-leash dog access areas

·        is not a detailed review of all parks as this option only seeks to identify areas with existing practical under control off-leash areas. 

Option B4: Detailed review of all local parks

44.     This option involves a detailed review of all parks (both high and low use) and implements the Auckland Council Policy on Dogs 2012. This option would involve site visits to all parks with consideration as to what dog access rules are best suited to activities occurring on the park and a network based approach to the wider provision of dog access.

45.     This option would allow the local board to consider whether or not the existing default under control off-leash rule is appropriate for the local board area.

46.     In contrast to the targeted review of parks (Option B2) and a high level review to identify practical “under control off-leash” parks (Option B3), the local board would be required to co-ordinate and fully fund this option.    

47.     The benefits of this option are:

·        allows for a detailed site-specific review of all parks in  accordance with the Auckland Council Policy on Dogs 2012, community preferences and wildlife considerations

·        allows for an integrated approach to be taken to the review of the dog access rules on all parks and reserves

·        provides greater certainty in all parks and reduces the potential for conflict in these areas

·        removes or replaces confusing rules that are difficult to communicate and enforce.


48.     The disadvantages of this option are:

·        local board will be required to co-ordinate and fund this detailed  review of all parks and reserves which will be resource intensive[1].

·        will increase complexity of the issues to be considered by the local board and the community as part of the consultation on any proposed changes to the dog access rules

·        a full review is likely to result in  changes to a larger  number of parks

·        additional local board resources would be used when a targeted review of parks (Option B2) and a high level review to identify practical “under control off-leash” parks (Option B3) would potentially achieve the same outcome in areas of most interest.

Recommendation

49.     Staff recommend that a review of local dog access rules incorporate a targeted review of parks (Option B2) and a high level review to identify practical “under control off-leash” parks (Option B3) as a targeted approach to a review of the local dog access rules strikes the most appropriate balance between implementing the Auckland Council Policy on Dogs 2012, the complexity and scope of the review and the resource required to undertake that review.   

Considerations

Local board views

50.     The views of other local boards have not been sought on the scope of this review. Local boards, During the 2013/14 and 2014/15 reviews chose to review the beach and foreshore areas and adjacent parks, high-use parks, generic rules and dog exercise areas.

51.     Consistency with other local board dog access rules is also a factor that the local board may want to take into consideration. Staff will provide advice on decisions made by other local boards during the options analysis and deliberations stages of the review.   

Māori Impact Statement

52.     The views of 23 iwi in relation to dog access were sought as part of hui consulting on a range of bylaws held in October 2013 and in March 2015.

53.     Feedback from the hui related to the ability of iwi to determine dog access on Marae, a focus on control, responsible dog ownership, and ensuring the protection of sensitive ecological areas. The review of areas of protected wildlife is a matter recommended to be included in the review.

Implementation

54.     Staff will work with local board members, engagement advisors and communication advisors to develop a more detailed engagement plan in accordance with the decisions of the local board and existing budgets.

55.     Implementation costs such as updating basic standard signage is expected to be from existing regional budgets.

56.     Potential implementation issues to come from local board budgets include; additional research, engagement, and public notification initiatives, and any non-standard signage.

Review of the Food Safety Bylaw 2013

 

File No.: CP2015/26008

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       To seek the local board’s views regarding proposals to retain the grading provision of the Auckland Council Food Safety Bylaw 2013 and require the display of food safety grade certificates.

Executive Summary

2.       From 1 March 2016 the Food Act 2014 (“the Act”) will replace the Food Act 1981 and Food Hygiene Regulations 1974 over a three year transition period. The Act also requires the amendment of existing food safety bylaws to ensure consistency. A formal public consultation process is not required for this bylaw review.

3.       Staff analysis has identified that most of the existing Food Safety Bylaw 2013 (“the Bylaw”) provisions can be revoked and will be regulated by the Act and subsequent regulations.

4.       National food safety grading will not be implemented through the new Act.

5.       Staff propose to retain the grading provision of the Auckland Council Food Safety Bylaw 2013 and require the display of food safety grade certificates. Staff consider that the mandatory display of food safety grade certificates provides an incentive for food operators to proactively improve and maintain the safety of their food and enables customers to make informed choices.

6.       A proposed amended bylaw will be presented to the Regulatory and Bylaws Committee in February 2016 followed by the Governing Body for consideration. The views of local boards will be presented in the accompanying report. 

 

Recommendations

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      endorse the proposal to retain the grading provision of the Auckland Council Food Safety Bylaw 2013 and require the display of food safety grade certificates.

 

Comments

Background

The Food Act 2014

7.       The Food Act 2014 (“the Act”) will come into effect on 1 March 2016. It will replace the Food Act 1981 and the Food Hygiene Regulations 1974 over a three year transition period. The Act will introduce significant improvements to the way that food safety is addressed by food businesses across New Zealand.

8.       The primary duty of ensuring food safety will be the responsibility of food businesses, including food operators of mobile shops and food stalls at markets. For most businesses, this will involve a new requirement to document their procedures which will be audited by the council.

9.       Businesses that prepare food with a high risk to food safety will be required to operate under a Food Control Plan. In most cases, a business subject to a Food Control Plan will be required to register with their local council. This enables councils to manage compliance activities and identify operators’ understanding of food safety.

10.     The Act introduces new registration and auditing requirements for food businesses that operate from school tuckshops, childcare centres, work cafeterias and marae.

11.     Businesses or charities that sell food for community purposes or to raise funds will be exempt from registration and auditing requirements for up to 20 occasions per year (e.g. sausage sizzles or home baking at school fairs).

Auckland Council Food Safety Bylaw 2013

12.     On 23 May 2013, the council’s Governing Body adopted the Auckland Council Food Safety Bylaw 2013 (“the Bylaw”) to replace seven legacy council food safety bylaws (Resolution Number: GB/2013/47).

13.     The Bylaw was introduced to minimise potential food safety risks associated with the sale of food. The Bylaw provides the council with powers related to:

·      the closure of unhygienic or unsafe food premises

·      minimum standards for staff training in basic food hygiene

·      grading of food premises

·      standards for preparing, handling and labelling food sold to private premises, and

·      operating food stalls and mobile food shops.

14.     The Bylaw requires each registered food business to display a food safety grade certificate, which the council issues following its inspection of the premises, pursuant to the Food Hygiene Regulations 1974. The certificate shows customers the premises’ food safety level.

Discussion

Impact of the Food Act 2014 on the Food Safety Bylaw 2013

15.     The new Act requires the council to amend its Bylaw to ensure consistency with the new regulatory regime for food businesses. In June 2015, the Regulatory and Bylaws Committee directed council staff to undertake a review of the Bylaw (Resolution Number: RBC/2015/19).

16.     Staff have now completed this review and recommend that the council revoke most of the Bylaw as the relevant activities will instead be regulated by the Act and subsequent regulations. The exception to this is the food grading system. 

17.     National food safety grading will not be implemented through the new Act, although there is potential for the development of a national scheme after 2019. Staff recommend retaining the grading provision (with minor amendments) of the Bylaw and require the display of food safety grade certificates.

18.     There would be no additional cost to businesses for a food safety grade certificate. The grade assessment would be undertaken at the same time as the audit required by the new Act.

19.     The benefits of a food safety grading scheme is that it provides:

·      food operators with an incentive to take responsibility for the safety of the food they sell and to proactively improve and maintain the safety of their food

·      the public with concise information on a business’ level of food safety so that customers can make informed choices.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

20.     This report seeks the views of local boards on retaining the Food Safety Bylaw 2013 to require the display of a food safety grade certificate for food businesses registered with the council.

21.     The views of local boards will be presented to the Regulatory and Bylaws Committee and the Governing Body in February 2016.

22.     Local boards were engaged on the consolidation of legacy food safety bylaws in 2011 and feedback received at the time indicated there was general support for the grading of food premises. Some local board members expressed concern about the standards applying to food sold from stalls at markets.

Māori impact statement

23.     Engagement with mana whenua and mataa waka is currently underway.

24.     Food prepared and served on a marae that is not provided as part of a commercial activity is outside the scope of this bylaw review. In addition, registration and auditing requirements of the new Act do not apply to the preparation and sale of food for the purpose of raising funds up to 20 times a year. 

25.     Food businesses that operate from marae, for instance catering at events more than 20 times per year, will be subject to registration and auditing requirements under the Act in the same way as other food businesses.

Implementation

26.     The Governing Body is responsible for making a decision on the review of the Food Safety Bylaw 2013. A proposed amended bylaw will be presented to the Regulatory and Bylaws Committee in February 2016. It will then be considered by the Governing Body. The views of Local Boards and targeted stakeholders will be presented in the accompanying report. 

27.     The method for determining the criteria of food safety grades is an operational matter and is outside the scope of this bylaw review.

28.     Registration fees for food businesses are also out of scope of this bylaw review. For information purposes, proposed fees under the new Act were presented to the Finance and Performance Committee at their meeting on 19 November 2015. The consultation period on proposed fees will be from 20 November to 21 December 2015. Current registration and inspection fees will continue to apply for existing food businesses until they transition to the new regulatory regime.

Reprioritisation of Manurewa Local Board 2015/2016 budget

 

File No.: CP2015/26164

 

  

 

 

Purpose

1.       The purpose of this report is to seek the Manurewa Local Board’s decisions for reprioritising unallocated operational and capital expenditure for the 2015-2016 financial year.

Executive Summary

1.       The Manurewa Local Board (local board) adopted its Local Board Agreement 2015-2016 at its business meeting in June 2015, including local activity budgets and allocation of locally driven initiative funding to projects and services in the Manurewa area.

2.       Since June, confirmation and refinement of work programmes has meant that some funding has been identified as surplus to requirements for delivering on agreed services, projects and initiatives. This funding is therefore available to the local board for reallocation to other currently unfunded or partially funded priorities that support local outcomes and identified through the Local Board Plan 2014.

3.       The local board also had $1,651,105 of Locally Driven Initiatives (LDI) Capital Expenditure funding available to fund local capital projects over the 3 years to June 2018. An amount of $800,000 is required to for the completion of the community pavilion project on Riverton Reserve, leaving $851,105 to be allocated. The local board may wish to consider allocating this portion at this time, in whole or in part. It can also defer a decision to some future date.

4.       The local board will consider options for the allocation of its LDI operational and capital budgets at a workshop on Thursday 3 December 2015. This date falls between the writing of this report to meet agenda deadlines and the business meeting itself. Therefore the local board’s views from the workshop are not available to be included in this report. They will be presented for the local board to formally discuss and resolve on at this business meeting.

 

 

Recommendation/s

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      Resolves to reprioritise and reallocate available funding as discussed at the local board workshop on Thursday 3 December 2015.

Annual Plan 2016/2017 – local consultation content

 

File No.: CP2015/25983

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       This report seeks agreement of proposed locally driven initiative priorities for 2016/2017 and adoption of local content for consultation, as part of the Annual Plan 2016/2017

Executive Summary

2.       Legislation governing the annual plan process has changed - there is no longer a requirement to produce a draft Annual Plan.  Instead,  council must produce a consultation document which includes:

a)      proposed significant or material changes (if any) to year two of the Long-term Plan 2015-2025 (LTP); and

b)      content relating to local board agreements.

3.       This report seeks agreement of proposed locally driven initiative priorities for 2016/2017 and adoption of local content for consultation.

4.       Following this business meeting, the governing body will meet on 17 December to agree consultation topics for the annual plan, and again in early February to agree consultation material, including local content from each local board.

5.       Following consultation, a local board agreement with the governing body for 2016/2017 will be developed.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      agrees indicative locally driven initiatives (LDI) priorities for 2016/2017 (Attachment A)

b)      adopts local content for consultation (Attachment B)

c)      agrees that the Chair be delegated the authority to make any final minor changes to local consultation content for the Annual Plan 2016/2017 prior to publication, including online consultation content.  

 

Comments

6.       Legislation governing the annual plan process has changed - there is no longer a requirement to produce a draft Annual Plan.  Instead,  council must produce a consultation document which includes:

a)      proposed significant or material changes (if any) to year two of the Long-term Plan 2015-2025 (LTP); and

b)      content relating to local board agreements.

7.       Over the last three months local boards have refined local priorities within funding envelopes outlined in year two of the LTP to prepare for consultation.  This included consideration of locally driven initiatives and asset based services work programmes.

8.       This report seeks agreement of proposed locally driven initiative priorities for 2016/2017 and adoption of local content for consultation.

9.       Following this business meeting, the governing body will meet on 17 December to agree consultation topics for the annual plan, and again in early February to agree consultation material, including local content from each local board.

10.     Consultation on the Annual Plan will take place from 15 February to 15 March 2016.

11.     Following consultation, a local board agreement with the governing body for 2016/2017 will be developed.  The annual plan, including 21 local board agreements, is due for adoption in June 2016.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

12.     Local board feedback on regional matters for consultation was sought in November business meetings.

13.     Advocacy discussions between local boards and the Finance & Performance Committee were held in November prior to decisions being made on annual plan consultation topics.

14.     The purpose of this report is for local boards to agree local priorities and adopt local content for consultation.

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

Māori impact statement

16.     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

17.     Following consultation, proposed initiatives and budgets will be considered and updated to reflect feedback and new information available, prior to adoption of the final annual plan.

Draft Regional Pest Management Plan Review

 

File No.: CP2015/24707

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       The purpose of this report is to:

·   inform local boards about the first stage of public consultation on the Regional Pest Management Plan review

·   request local boards to provide any initial feedback on pest management issues in preparation of the draft Regional Pest Management Plan (RPMP)

·   note that informal and formal local board engagement will be undertaken in early 2016 to inform the final draft RPMP.

Executive Summary

2.       The Auckland Regional Pest Management Plan is undergoing a major review, driven by legislative and operational changes.  Council is now inviting public comment on pest management issues in the region, as part one of a two-stage consultation process.  Public comments close on 27 November 2015.

3.       Pest management is important at a local as well as a regional scale. Local board views have been sought through meetings and a combined local board workshop on 20 April 2015. Following local board and mana whenua engagement, a discussion document and a brief summary brochure have been prepared for the first stage of consultation. These documents are presented for your information, dissemination, and further feedback if desired.

4.       Comments from this consultation will inform the proposed Auckland Regional Pest Management Plan which will be developed for the second stage of consultation (formal public submissions and hearings) in 2016.  Comments can be made on the topics raised in the document or on any other pest management issue.

 

 

Recommendation/s

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      Provides any initial feedback on pest management issues impacting their area.

b)      Notes the October 2015 Regional Strategy and Policy Committee report and attachments titled Regional Pest Management Plan Review – approval of discussion document

c)      Notes that informal and formal local board engagement will be undertaken in early 2016 to inform the final draft Regional Pest Management Plan.

 

 

Comments

5.       The Auckland Regional Pest Management Plan is the main statutory document implementing the Biosecurity Act 1993 in the region. It provides a strategic and statutory framework for the effective management of plant and animal pests.  Auckland Council is reviewing its plan (which dates from 2007).  The purpose of the review is to update the council’s approach to pest management, especially with regard to changes in pest species, distribution, and issues arising from their control; along with community expectations and available resources.

6.       It is also necessary to incorporate new provisions which come from the reform of the Biosecurity Act in 2012.  Among other changes, the Act now requires councils to be consistent with the National Policy Direction on Pest Management (NPD), which was gazetted on 24 August 2015 and introduces new pest programme categories.

7.       A two-stage consultation process is being used for the review. The first stage includes an informal public consultation on pest management issues in the region. The attached discussion document and summary brochure have been prepared for this first stage.  Following local board comments and feedback in the early part of 2015 and a combined workshop on 20 April 2015. Feedback from this consultation will help to inform the content of the review and the drafting of a Proposed Regional Pest Management Plan in 2016.

8.       The first stage of consultation also includes hui with mana whenua, and meetings with community groups and industry. Materials have been distributed widely via email, social media, and the Auckland Council website. Copies of the discussion document have has also been sent to libraries and service centres as well as Local Board offices.

9.       The second stage of consultation will commence once the Regional Strategy and Policy Committee adopts a proposed draft plan. The second stage will comprise a formal submission period followed by hearings.

10.     The discussion document and summary brochure were approved by the Regional Strategy and Policy Committee on 8 October for a six week consultation period, ending on 27 November 2015.  The discussion document summarises proposed changes and key issues, including:

·        Feral goat exclusion zones

·        Contolling widespread weeds

·        Red-eared slider turtles

·        Bangalow palms

·        Community pest control

·        Marine pests

11.     Both documents seek to encourage comments from a broad cross-section of the community and technical detail has been kept to a minimum. Comments can be made on the topics raised in the document or on any other pest management issue.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

12.     To date, local boards have provided input into the discussion document through two briefing sessions in April 2015.

13.     This report requests local boards provide initial feedback on pest management issues impacting their area to provide guidance and direction to staff.

14.     Local boards will have a further opportunity to inform to the development of the proposed Regional Pest Management Plan informally and formally in the first half of 2016.

Māori impact statement

15.     One of the primary purposes of pest management is to manage the effects of pests on the relationship between Māori and their culture, traditions, ancestral lands, waters, sites, wāhi tapu and taonga.  Initial consultation with māori has occurred through a series of individual and combined hui.  A further combined hui was held on 15 October.

16.     Ongoing consultation with iwi authorities and tribal rūnanga will occur throughout the review process.

 

Implementation

17.     The review of the Regional Pest Management Plan (including producing and distributing the discussion document) is funded through existing Biosecurity and Natural Environment Strategy budgets. 

18.     Any changes to the plan arising from the review are likely to have operational cost implications.  These will be considered during the cost-benefit and cost-allocation stages of the review, and in subsequent annual plan and LTP processes.

The business precinct plan supports continued growth of industrial activities in the Airport area, East Tamaki, Wiri and the industrial areas of Takanini, Drury, Papakura, and Pukekohe.

These zoned industrial areas make a significant contribution to the Auckland economy. In 2012 they contributed an estimated $18 billion towards Auckland’s GDP, employed 23 percent of Auckland’s total employment with employment growth of 27.5 percent since 2002.
