1          Welcome

 

2          Apologies

 

An apology was received from Member Margaret Miles for absence.

 

3          Declaration of Interest

 

Members are reminded of the need to be vigilant to stand aside from decision making when a conflict arises between their role as a member and any private or other external interest they might have.

 

The Auckland Council Code of Conduct for Elected Members (the Code) requires elected members to fully acquaint themselves with, and strictly adhere to, the provisions of Auckland Council’s Conflicts of Interest Policy.  The policy covers two classes of conflict of interest:

 

i)              A financial conflict of interest, which is one where a decision or act of the local board could reasonably give rise to an expectation of financial gain or loss to an elected member; and

 

ii)             A non-financial conflict interest, which does not have a direct personal financial component.  It may arise, for example, from a personal relationship, or involvement with a non-profit organisation, or from conduct that indicates prejudice or predetermination.

 

The Office of the Auditor General has produced guidelines to help elected members understand the requirements of the Local Authority (Member’s Interest) Act 1968.  The guidelines discuss both types of conflicts in more detail, and provide elected members with practical examples and advice around when they may (or may not) have a conflict of interest.

 

Copies of both the Auckland Council Code of Conduct for Elected Members and the Office of the Auditor General guidelines are available for inspection by members upon request. 

 

Any questions relating to the Code or the guidelines may be directed to the Relationship Manager in the first instance.

 

4          Confirmation of Minutes

 

That the Upper Harbour Local Board:

a)         confirm the ordinary minutes of its meeting, held on Tuesday, 12 July 2016, as a true and correct record.

8          Deputations

 

Standing Order 3.20 provides for deputations. Those applying for deputations are required to give seven working days notice of subject matter and applications are approved by the Chairperson of the Upper Harbour Local Board. This means that details relating to deputations can be included in the published agenda. Total speaking time per deputation is ten minutes or as resolved by the meeting.

Upper Harbour Local Board Community Facilities Renewals Work Programme 2016/2017

 

File No.: CP2016/14261

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       To approve the 2016/2017 work programme for Community Facilities renewals for the local parks, sports and recreation activity.

Executive summary

2.       Renewals funding is identified at a high level through the long-term plan and a capital works programme is prepared for approval annually. The programme ensures that each council facility can operate to the current level of service articulated in the relevant asset management plan.

3.       Attachment A provides the proposed 2016/2017 work programme for community facilities, local parks, sports and recreation, renewals for local board approval.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Upper Harbour Local Board:

a)      approve the 2016/2017 work programme for Upper Harbour Local Board Parks, Sports and Recreation Renewals

b)      note that the 2016/2017 funding envelope is indicative to deliver this programme of work and any budget variances (within scope) will be managed within the total region-wide renewals funding envelope.

 

 

Comments

4.       Community facilities are an important part of realising the vision of Auckland to become the world’s most liveable city. They contribute to building strong, healthy, and vibrant communities by providing spaces where Aucklanders can connect, socialise, learn, and participate in a wide range of social, cultural, art, and recreational activities. These activities foster improved lifestyles and a sense of belonging and pride among residents.

5.       Investment in this renewals programme will ensure that council facilities remain valuable, well-maintained community assets that continue to meet user expectations. Not undertaking timely renewals will have an undesirable impact on the customer experience and put asset performance at risk, and ultimately increase the cost to maintain the facility.

6.       The renewals programme process ensures that the proposed Community Facility renewals work programme (refer to Attachment A) has received extensive input and assessment from business owners, facility users, and Community Facilities staff.

Consideration

Local board views and implications

7.       Auckland Council staff will report quarterly to the local board on how the programme is tracking, and discuss with the local board any arising key risks and notify the local board when projects are completed.

Māori impact statement

8.       The Upper Harbour Local Board Community Facility renewals work programme 2016/17 will ensure that all facilities continue to be well-maintained community assets benefiting the local community, including Māori. Parks and open spaces, as well as sport and recreation activity contributes significantly to Māori well-being, values, culture and traditions. Where any aspects of the proposed work programme are anticipated to have a significant impact on sites of importance to Tangata Whenua appropriate consultation will follow.

Implementation

9.       This work programme will be implemented as part of Community Facilities’ usual business practice.

10.     Work programme implementation will be reported quarterly to the local board. The first-quarter report will outline the programme’s delivery schedule.

11.     The 2016/2017 Community Facilities renewals work programme for the local community services activity was presented for approval at the june business meeting.  

12.     Where bundles of assets are presented as projects over multiple years, the assets (listed within each project line) will be renewed in order of priority with as many singular assets being renewed, within the allocated budget, as possible.
