Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board

23 November 2016

 

 

Replacement of Sugar Sweetened Beverages.

 

File No.: CP2016/22581

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       The purpose of this report is to seek Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board’s support, in principle, to replace the sale and supply of Sugar Sweetened Beverages (SSB’s) with healthier alternatives, within all council community and social facilities (such as leisure centres, libraries and community houses/halls/centres) and at council run events in the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board area by December 2018.

Executive summary

2.       Auckland Council, through Community and Social Innovation, The Southern Initiative Team, have partnered with Alliance Community Initiatives Trust and Nga Mana Whenua o Tamaki Makaurau to deliver Healthy Families NZ in Manukau (comprising Mangere-Otahuhu and Otara-Papatoetoe local board areas) and Manurewa-Papakura wards until 2018.

3.       Healthy Families NZ is the Government’s major investment into reducing preventable chronic disease in New Zealand. It is based around a systems approach to health that addresses the environmental influences of health where people live, learn, work and play.

4.       Healthy Families has 4 focus areas: Improving physical activity, drinking alcohol in moderation, living smokefree and healthy eating.

5.       SSB’s are one of two leading contributors to sugar intake in NZ as evidenced by findings from both the 2002 National Children’s Nutrition Survey and 2008/09 New Zealand Adult Nutrition Survey.

6.       Replacing SSB’s with healthier alternatives in all council community and social facilities and at council run events in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu is an important and immediate action that the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board can make as a commitment to improving health outcomes for residents.

7.       This is an opportunity for the four southern local boards that make-up The Southern Initiative (TSI) area to show collective support for Healthy Families Manukau, Manurewa-Papakura in a bid to reduce the impact of the obesity epidemic in South Auckland communities.

8.       Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board will be one of the first boards to give serious consideration to showing leadership in replacing the sale and supply of SSB’s with healthier alternatives in Auckland.

9.       Auckland Council is the primary contract holder on behalf of the Tamaki Healthy Families Alliance for Healthy Families Manukau, Manurewa Papakura.

 

 

Recommendation/s

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      support in principle the replacement of the sale and supply of Sugar Sweetened Beverages with healthier alternatives in all council community and social facilities (such as leisure centres, libraries and community houses/halls/centres).

 

 

 

 

 

b)      agree in principle to replace the sale and supply of Sugar Sweetened Beverages with healthier alternatives in the following events and locations in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board area by December 2018:

Comments

10.     The Ministry of Health defines SSBs as: any beverage that contains added caloric sweetener usually sugar. The main categories of sugary drinks include soft-drinks/fizzy-drinks, sachet mixes, fruit drinks, cordials, flavoured milks, cold teas/coffees, and energy/sports drinks.

11.     Social facilities includes the facilities and investments maintained by Auckland Council at a local level, such as community centres, community houses, youth centres and community halls, libraries, marae within our libraries, swimming pools and recreation facilities, public open space, galleries and museums.

12.     Council run events are defined as any events delivered on behalf of the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board such as public meetings, official openings and volunteer awards. It does not include events supported or funded by Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board.

13.     Due to the existing partnership agreements with external organisations, council run events do not include regionally delivered events such as Movies and Music in the Parks.

14.     It is anticipated that the learnings from the replacement of SSBs with healthier alternatives in the smaller local board events will provide the framework for the approach to be scaled to larger events over time.

15.     SSB’s have a profound prevalence in Auckland, with one in five children consuming fizzy drinks more than three times a week  and SSB’s making up three of the top five consumer items purchased in the food industry in NZ.

16.     Māori and Pacific people have the highest rates of preventable disease, with over half of all Maori and Pacific children in the Counties Manukau District Health Board area affected by obesity.  86% of the total population in the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board area identify as Māori and/or Pacific. 

17.     A review of 55 studies on childhood obesity concluded that the most effective strategies include improving the supply of healthier options, environments that support healthier options and reducing the promotion of unhealthy options. These approaches are further supported by the Government’s Childhood Obesity Plan.

18.     This approach supports the current changes to replace SSBs with healthier alternatives in District Health Board facilities across New Zealand.

19.     There has been considerable debate about what is deemed a ‘healthier alternative.’ District Health Boards across the region combined in 2015 to create a National District Health Board Food and Beverage Network. Healthier alternatives, as defined by the National District Health Board Food and Beverage Network in May 2016 include: water, unflavoured milk, hot tea/coffee and 100% fruit juice, diluted fruit juice with no added sugar and artificially sweetened beverages or zero sugar soft drinks in smaller portion sizes.

20.     The majority of vending machines across the region are located within the council’s Leisure department network.

21.     The Leisure department is committed to working with the Healthy Families Manukau, Manurewa-Papakura team to improve food and beverage options offered through the Leisure network.

22.     As a demonstration of this commitment, the new Request for Proposal (RFP) for tender of the regional vending machine contract in leisure centres now aligns with recently adopted National District Health Board Network Food and Beverage Guidelines.

23.     Moana Nui a Kiwa Pool & Leisure Centre was the first to show leadership and remove all vending machines from the facility.

24.     The revamped vending machines will sell healthier alternatives from October 2016 across all council run Leisure centres.

25.     Moana Nui a Kiwa Pool & Leisure Centre will have the choice to include vending machines in their centre once the new contract is in place.

26.     The Healthy Families Manukau, Manurewa-Papakura team will work with each department to improve access to existing drinkable water facilities and are currently mapping gaps in provision for the board’s consideration in the future.

27.     The Healthy Families Manukau, Manurewa-Papakura team has had initial discussions with each of the departments affected by the approach. All are supportive and open to working together to meet the proposed deadlines.

28.     Replacing SSB’s with healthier alternatives in vending machines has no financial implications for the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board to consider as there are none in council run social facilities in the area.

29.     This recommendation does not include or affect the sale and supply of alcoholic beverages.

30.     At this stage this recommendation does not include contracted Leisure sites such as Tōia.

Consideration

Local board views and implications

31.     The four local boards that make-up the TSI area have been approached to champion the replacement of the sale and supply of SSBs with healthier alternatives in council social facilities and council run events. This is in line with Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board’s commitment to working together with other boards in the south to build strong, safe and healthy communities in the southern parts of Auckland and aligns with the board’s aspirations to create safe and healthy neighbourhoods where communities thrive and belong.

32.     A similar report will be tabled at Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board in December and was considered at Papakura Local Board meeting in September.

33.     Providing healthier beverage options and improving access to drinkable water adds value to the significant investment the board has already put into new sports and recreation facilities in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu by providing an environment which encourages health and wellbeing.

34.     This approach aligns with a number of key outcomes in the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board Plan. Replacing SSBs with healthier alternatives and improving access to drinkable water in the spaces and places that people use and enjoy will directly contribute to the healthy choices in the places where people gather, play and meet.

35.     This action will support local schools, ECE’s and Sports Clubs in their efforts to provide a health promoting environment for their children, families and community.

Māori impact statement

36.     Māori are adversely affected by preventable disease in the Counties Manukau District. Replacing the sale and supply of SSB’s with healthier alternatives provides the board with a tangible way to support efforts to reduce the impact of obesity in local Māori population.

Implementation

37.     The Healthy Families Manukau, Manurewa-Papakura team will support the implementation of the replacement of SSB’s with healthier alternatives in council social facilities in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu over a two year period (2016-2018).

38.     Implementation will be phased and actions will include:

Table One.

Timeframe

Action

39.     The board will receive written updates every quarter or at the request of board members.

40.     This will be supplemented by written communications to board members at the completion of each action outlined in table 1.

41.     The departments affected are supportive of the change and are working towards replacing SSBs with healthier alternatives within the agreed timeframes. There are no anticipated barriers to implementation at this stage.

42.     The Healthy Families Manukau, Manurewa-Papakura team are currently developing a framework to monitor and evaluate the implementation of the approach. This will include building a case study for change based on the leisure and community places team’s experience of replacing SSBs with healthier alternatives.  The draft framework will be presented to the board before finalisation.

Key Project updates from the 2016/17 Work Programme

 

11.     All operating departments with an approved 2016/17 Work Programme have provided performance report updates for quarter one (See appendix A). The following are progress updates against key projects identified in the Local Board Plan:

 

ACE: Update on items that were subject to further decisions by the board:

·    Arts Broker Project and Art in Public Places (Item 2552 and 2594). A report for the last year and draft work programme for the current year was presented and approved by the board.

·        Empowered communities unit

i)       Development of an accessibility plan (Item 3608). The work is carried over from the last financial year. A funding agreement with Be Accessible Institute is to be finalised in the second quarter with support of a specialist advisor from the practice hub.

ii)       Business Improvement Districts, economic development, safety (Item 2341). This line includes contracts for CCTV monitoring and projects for working with disengaged youth. Contracts are in place for two BIDs and further progress expected in second quarter.

b)      Community Facility (Renewals)

Peninsula Point Reserve Bridge and footpath (Item 3248). Detailed design is in progress, however funding is yet to be allocated for project implementation and construction.

 

 

 

Financial Performance

13.     Revenue is slightly below budget as revenue from Mangere Art Centre has yet to be receipted while operating expenditure is higher due to early payment of term grants. 

14.     Capital project delivery is focused on Town Centre Revitalisation.  A request for proposal for design services has been issued. There is still some Locally Driven Initiatives (LDI) Capex funding to be allocated by the local board and these projects will need to be factored into the work programmes going forward.

 

 

Key Performance Indicators

 

15.     Performance measure targets were set by considering service expectations as well as previous performance results. As new performance measures were introduced in the Long-term Plan 2015-2025, some of the measures had no previous performance results. This made it challenging to set some of the targets. Officers will continue to refine future performance targets in the next long-term plan (for 2018-2028).

16.     The six performance measures in this report that have Q1 results are based on the actual results for July and August, and an estimate of September results.

17.     The year-end outlook is below target for three out of four measures for Local parks, sport and recreation. A recent change to the survey question provided a way for participants to easily identify which parks belong to their specific board area. Promoting local parks and facilities is one strategy being used to help increase the proportion of the population who visit local parks, and satisfaction with sports fields may be improved by work underway to enhance the quality of surfaces and playing conditions. 

18.     Two work items of the ACE (Empowered Communities Unit) work programme, item 2342 and 2340, are of some relevance here as the outcomes intended are to increase community connection and safety around local parks. These items are called Activating neighbourhood parks and Teaching Gardens.  Four parks have been identified with the aim of increasing park use and reducing anti-social behaviour. There is also an aim to increase local interaction and community ownership of the open space.

19.     Percentage of visitors satisfied with the library environment is unlikely to be achieved, but the outlook may improve after furniture and fittings renewals at Māngere Bridge Library.

20.     Town centre safety targets are also unlikely to be achieved, but the camera system and Work and Income ambassadors may improve the perception of safety over time.

21.     The year-end outlook for off-peak facility utilisation is below target, but the digital booking system, which began recording bookings in Q1, is expected to improve customer experience and utilisation.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

22.     This report informs the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board of the performance to date for the period ending 30 September, 2016.

Māori impact statement

23.     Of the total population of 70,959 living in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board area, 10,335 are Maori. The local board is committed in supporting work in achieving Māori outcomes.

Implementation

24.     The Senior Advisor Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board will continue to facilitate performance updates to the local board. This is in conjunction with the finance department for financial analysis that informs the quarterly report.

Swimming Pool Fencing Exemption Applications

 

File No.: CP2016/22428

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       The purpose of this report is for the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board to establish an agreed approach for how swimming pool fencing exemption applications are going to be resolved upon during the 2016/2019 term.

Executive summary

2.       Under section 6 of the Fencing of Swimming Pools Act 1987 (the Act), territorial authorities may grant exemptions from the requirements in the Act for particular swimming pools if satisfied that it “would not significantly increase danger to young children”.

3.       The decision-making responsibility for swimming pool fencing exemptions has been delegated to the local boards by the governing body (Resolution GB/2011/163).

4.       It is recommended that the local board assesses and considers these applications at a general business meeting.

5.       The local board could resolve to nominate a sub-group of local board members to make site visits when required and make recommendations to the full board to be formally resolved upon at a business meeting

 

Recommendation/s

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      Agrees to assess swimming pool fencing exemption applications as part of business meetings during the 2016/2019 term as the need arises.

 

 

Comments

6.       The purpose of the Fencing of Swimming Pools Act 1987 is to promote the safety of young children by requiring the fencing of certain swimming pools. The Act places an obligation on territorial authorities to ensure that pool owners comply with the Act, both at the time when the pool is built, and subsequently by occasional inspections of pools to ensure ongoing compliance.

7.       Under section 6 of the Act, territorial authorities may grant exemptions from the requirements in the Act for particular pools. Territorial authorities can also impose special conditions on a property and a pool. A territorial authority can only grant an exemption, or impose a special condition, if, after having regard to the characteristics of the pool and the property, it is satisfied that it “would not significantly increase danger to young children”.  No exemption is required for a new pool fence, or an alteration to an existing fence, if the new or altered fence is at least as safe as one built in accordance with the standard in the schedule of the Act.

8.       The governing body has delegated decision-making responsibility for swimming pool fencing exemptions to local boards (Resolution GB/2011/163). 

9.       To administer this delegation, staff recommend that applications are determined as part of a local board business meeting as this is the most efficient and effective decision-making mechanism.

10.     Assessing and determining swimming pool exemption applications at a business meeting has a number of benefits, including:

·    consistent and streamlined approach for applications to be considered

·  business meetings are the primary formal decision-making mechanism of the local board

·    appropriate level of administrative support can be provided.

11.     There is a risk with this approach that applications will not be given due consideration amongst congested local board business meeting agendas, however this can be mitigated by a sub-group of local board members visiting pools as required, to inform the boards’ decisions.

12.     A sub-group of local board members could nominate themselves to conduct site visits, on an as-needed-basis, and make recommendations to the full local board for consideration and adoption at a regular business meeting.

13.     If the local board resolves to nominate a sub-group to conduct site visits, staff recommend that no more than four board members participate in the sub-group. Sub-group participants should be agreed by resolution.

14.     If an application includes sensitive information, the local board may, by resolution, exclude the public from the whole or any part of the proceedings of the meeting if one or more of the grounds set out in the legislation under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA) and in the Standing Orders for the Local Boards are met.

Consideration

Local board views and implications

15.     The recommendations within this report fall within the local board’s delegated authority.

Māori impact statement

16.     This report does not specifically impact on Māori.

Implementation

17.     Costs associated with a small number of elected members meeting to consider the applications, in advance of putting forward recommendations to the full board at a business meeting, will be met within internal operating budgets.

18.     The decision of the local board following an exemption hearing is open to challenge by a judicial review process. Local board members will be briefed by Legal Services and Building Control staff regarding the requirements of the Fencing of Swimming Pools Act 1987, the Building Act and the appropriate considerations to take into account when determining an application by a hearings process.

19.     The Building (Pools) Amendment Bill was introduced to New Zealand Parliament on 9 September 2015. Once adopted, this may impact on the role of the local boards in assessing swimming pool fencing exemption applications. Staff will provide more information on this as it becomes available[1].

Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board

Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board urgent decision-making process for the 2016-2019 triennium

 

File No.: CP2016/22473

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       The purpose of this report is to seek the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board’s agreement to use the urgent decision-making process when appropriate. 

Executive summary

2.       The urgent decision-making process enables the board to make decisions without calling the full board together and meeting the requirement of a quorum. By agreeing to this process, the board delegates decision-making authority to the chair and deputy chair, or any person acting in these roles.

3.       At times, such as during the Christmas and New Year period, it is not practical to call the full board together and meet the requirements of a quorum. This is an example of when the urgent decision-making process would be used.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      adopt the urgent decision-making process for matters that require a decision where it is not practical to call the full board together and meet the requirement of a quorum.

b)      delegate authority to the chair and deputy chair, or any person acting in these roles, to make urgent decisions on behalf of the local board.

c)      agree that the relationship manager, chair and deputy chair (or any person/s acting in these roles) will authorise the urgent decision-making process by signing off the authorisation memo.

d)      note that all urgent decisions will be reported to the next ordinary meeting of the local board.

 

 

Comments

What an urgent decision is

 

4.       The urgent decision-making process enables the chair and deputy chair, or any person acting in these roles, to make urgent decisions on behalf of the local board when it is not practical to call the full board together and meet the requirement of a quorum. Examples include during the Christmas and New Year period or for participating in a council submission process.

5.       The Local Government Act 2002[2] provides for local boards to delegate to committees, sub-committees, members of the local board or Auckland Council staff, any of its responsibilities, duties and powers, with some specific exceptions. This legislation enables the urgent decision-making process.

6.       The urgent decision-making process provides an alternative decision-making mechanism to an extraordinary meeting. An extraordinary meeting is called when an urgent decision is required on matters that cannot wait until the next scheduled business meeting of the local board. 

7.       Urgent decisions are different from emergency decisions, which are only made if there is a risk to public health and safety.

 

The urgent decision-making process

8.       All requests for an urgent decision will be supported by a memo stating the nature of the issue, reason for urgency and what decisions or resolutions are required. 

9.       The local board relationship manager will use the information in this memo to determine whether or not to authorise the urgent-decision making process.

10.     A number of factors will be considered by the relationship manager before approval to use the urgent decision-making process is given, such as:

·    the timing of the next scheduled meeting

·    confirmation that the local board has the delegation to make the decision

·    consideration of the rationale for the urgency

·    the significance of the decision and whether the urgent decision-making process is appropriate.

11.     Once the relationship manager authorises the use of the urgent decision-making process, the chair and deputy chair (or any person/s acting in these roles) also need to approve the use of the urgent decision-making process by signing the same memo.

12.     Once the authorisation memo has been approved, the chair and deputy chair will refer to the substantive report for advice and staff recommendations to inform their decision.  This report will meet Auckland Council quality advice standards and adhere to the report authorisation processes.

13.     Any decision made using the urgent decision-making process will be reported as an information item to the next ordinary meeting of the local board and the signed approval memo will be attached.

Consideration

Local board views and implications

14.     This report outlines the local board urgent decision-making process, and seeks the local board’s agreement to adopt this process.

Māori impact statement

15.     There is no specific impact for Māori arising from this report.

Implementation

16.     This report outlines how the local board relationship manager and elected members will execute the urgent decision-making process when the need arises. Paragraph four outlines the implications of this for local boards.

 

17.     The local board relationship managers can provide advice as to what might constitute an urgent decision.

Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board

23 November 2016

 

 

Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board Meeting Schedule for the 2016-2019 Triennium

 

File No.: CP2016/22474

 

  

 

Purpose

1.         To seek the adoption of the Local Board meeting schedule for the 2016/2019 electoral term.

Executive Summary

2.       A draft meeting schedule for the 2016/2019 electoral term has been developed and is included below for adoption by the local board.

3.       The specific times and dates for meetings, public engagement and any hearings, which may be required for matters such as local board plans and local board agreements, are yet to be finalised. Local board meeting schedules may therefore be updated once these details are confirmed.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)         Note that except for December the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board meetings will be held on the third Wednesday of the month commencing at 5pm in the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board meeting room, Shop 17, 93 Bader Drive, Mangere.

b)         Adopts its meeting schedule outlined below for the 2016/2019 electoral term:

i)         Wednesday, 14 December 2016

ii)         Wednesday, 15 February 2017

iii)        Wednesday, 15 March 2017

iv)       Wednesday, 19 April 2017

v)        Wednesday, 17 May 2017

vi)       Wednesday, 21 June 2017

vii)       Wednesday, 19 July 2017

viii)      Wednesday, 16 August 2017

ix)       Wednesday, 20 September 2017

x)        Wednesday, 18 October 2017

xi)       Wednesday, 15 November 2017

xii)       Wednesday, 13 December 2017

xiii)      Wednesday, 21 February 2018

xiv)     Wednesday, 21 March 2018

xv)      Wednesday 18 April 2018

xvi)     Wednesday, 16 May 2018

xvii)     Wednesday, 20 June 2018

xviii)    Wednesday, 18 July 2018

xix)     Wednesday, 15 August 2018

xx)      Wednesday, 19 September 2018

xxi)     Wednesday, 17 October 2018

xxii)     Wednesday, 21 November 2018

xxiii)    Wednesday, 12 December 2018

xxiv)   Wednesday, 20 February 2019

xxv)    Wednesday, 20 March 2019

xxvi)   Wednesday, 17 April 2019

xxvii)   Wednesday, 15 May 2019

xxviii)  Wednesday, 19 June 2019

xxix)   Wednesday, 17 July 2019

xxx)    Wednesday, 21 August 2019

xxxi)   Wednesday, 18 September 2019

 

c)      Agrees to commence business meetings at 5.00pm. Public forum and deputations will be scheduled in the early part of the business meeting, to enable the democratic process.

d)      Notes that dates and times for meetings, public engagement and any hearings and deliberations for local board plans and local board agreements are yet to be finalised.

 

 

Discussion

4.       The Local Government Act 2002 (LGA) and the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA) have requirements regarding local board meeting schedules.

5.       In summary, adopting a meeting schedule helps meet the requirements of:

·        clause 19, Schedule 7 of the LGA on general provisions for meetings, which requires the chief executive to give notice in writing to each local board member of the time and place of meetings.  Such notification may be provided by the adoption of a schedule of business meetings.

·        sections 46, 46(A) and 47 in Part 7 of the LGOIMA, which requires that meetings are publicly notified, agendas and reports are available at least two working days before a meeting and that local board meetings are open to the public.

6.       Adopting a business meeting schedule also allows for a planned approach to workloads and ensures that local board members have clarity about their commitments.

7.       Commencing the business meeting during business hours will enable meetings to be productive and ensures best use of resources.   

8.       There are some instances for which the local board may need to have meetings in addition to this schedule. For example, the local board plans (developed every three years) and local board agreements (developed annually). The specific times and dates for those meetings, public engagement and any hearings process for these matters are yet to be finalized and are therefore not included in the schedule above.

Consideration

Local board views and implications

9.       The implication of this report is to ensure that the local board meets its legislative responsibility, as outlined in paragraph five.

Māori impact statement

10.     There is no specific impact for Māori arising from this report.  Local boards work with Māori on projects and initiatives of shared interest.

Implementation

11.     If there is any need to depart from the resolved dates, Auckland Council will publically notify the updated details. Local Board Services Department staff support local board business meetings.
