Comments

ACE work programme 2016/2017

8.†††††† The ACE work programme for 2016/2017 has been developed using a co-ordinated departmental approach. The programme reflects the community empowerment approach through a number of cross-unit and cross-departmental activities. Over time, the principles of community empowerment will drive the ACE work programme. Future work programmes will demonstrate a more joined-up departmental approach. Each ACE unit has aligned their projects and initiatives to the Auckland Plan directives and the Waitākere Ranges Local Board plan 2014-2017.

9.†††††† The ACE work programme aligns to the following 2014-2017 Waitākere Ranges Local Board Plan priorities:

∑†††† Arts and culture flourish, with Titirangi as the vibrant arts hub for the west; through the activation of arts centres and galleries, and a number of local cultural festivals.

∑†††† Thriving communities; through community events, safety initiatives and capacity building support for community organisations.

10.†††† The ACE work programme 2016/2017 for the Waitākere Ranges Local Board includes the following areas of activity:

∑†††† Community Empowerment: These projects and programmes aim to deliver a range of social outcomes for local residents. This includes supporting a safety working group in Glen Eden, youth capacity building initiatives and community funding for projects that support Māori residents and Hoani Waititi marae

∑†††† Arts and Culture: This includes funding for the Titirangi arts precinct, the Going West literary festival and activations across the local board area through the community arts programme

∑†††† Events: This work programme includes a range of community events such as Te Henga Community Day, Kauri Karnival, Movies in Parks and Conservation Week events

∑†††† Community Places: This includes the provision and programming of Titirangi Community House and Glen Eden Community House.

11.†††† The work programme includes scoped initiatives that align with the local board priorities, budget allocation and established timelines.

12.†††† The local board considered a draft work programme at the workshop with ACE staff on 19 May. Staff have incorporated the local boardís feedback into the work programme.

Empowered Communities Approach

13.†††† The Community Empowerment Unit is operationalising the Empowered Communities Approach, a new way of working. Community empowerment means communities having a sense of control over what happens at a local level and council fostering the conditions that support this. For 2016/2017 the unit is focused on delivery within four key areas:

∑††††††† initiatives that are joined up and delivered with other departments of council and the CCOs and that support local board plans

∑††††††† capacity building programmes and projects for the community and voluntary sector and residents

∑††††††† initiatives designed to enhance participation and engagement in council decision making

∑††††††† collaborative Auckland-wide initiatives that respond to complex issues where the advantage of councilís size will have a significant impact on outcomes.

14.†††† The Empowered Communities Approach is demonstrated in both the community and youth capacity building initiatives within this work programme.

15.†††† Local boards are requested to approve the ACE work programme for 2016/2017. ACE staff will continue to work with relevant portfolio holders and the local board to ensure these projects are delivered and evaluated.

16.†††† It is noted that the work programme includes approval for the following funding agreements:

∑††††††† Community Waitakere, $88,000

∑††††††† McCahon House Trust, $20,887

∑††††††† Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery Inc, $619,938

∑††††††† Titirangi Community Arts Council, $46,720

∑††††††† West Coast Community Arts Trust, $14,456

∑††††††† Going West Trust (for Going West Festival), $58,000

Local board views and implications

17.†††† The draft 2016/2017 work programme was considered by the local board at a workshop on 19 May 2016. Feedback from the local board was considered and incorporated into the local board work programme (Attachment A).

18.†††† Staff are recommending the local board delegate financial decision making to the Community Development portfolio holder to approve the final initiative scope and distribution of funds to community groups to implement the 2016/17 Community Empowerment Unit work programme (except for those matters separately approved)

Consideration

Māori impact statement

19.†††† Improving Māori outcomes is a priority for the region. One of the Auckland Plan targets is to increase targeted support to Māori community development projects. A key objective of ACE is to deepen and integrate relationships with Mana whenua, Mataawaka and Marae, in our everyday work.

20.†††† This ACE work programme strives to achieve stronger relationships with Māori by building the capacity of Mana whenua and Mataawaka including Hoani Waititi Marae. It also aims to improve the well-being of Māori living in the Waitākere Ranges local board area by funding initiatives that support the aspirations of Māori residents.

Implementation

21.†††† Once approved, ACE staff will monitor and evaluate the ACE work programme progress throughout 2016/2017. Staff will continue to meet with portfolio holders to provide updates on the work programme and ensure it is progressed in a timely way. The ACE work programme will be implemented within the annual plan 2016/2017 budget and updates on progress will be available through SharePoint at the end of each quarter.
