Henderson-Massey Local Board Chairperson's report

 

File No.: CP2017/00726

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       To provide an update on the activities of the Henderson-Massey Local Board Chairperson since the 13 December inaugural ceremony.

Executive summary

 

Recommendation/s

That the Henderson-Massey Local Board:

a)      receive the Henderson-Massey Local Board Chairperson’s report.

 

Acknowledgments

The summer break was a welcome one for the Henderson-Massey Local Board, after a huge busy period before Christmas and possibly one of the biggest years for our communities in a long time ahead.  From the Chair, I want to acknowledge my colleagues on the local board and the staff that do such a fantastic job.  We hope you had a relaxing break, and are refreshed and excited for a busy 2017. 

There has been some media attention on the issue of begging in our town centres recently.  I wish to acknowledge the stellar work the Police have done with this complex situation.  In our experience, the Police have been swift in protecting public safety where it is needed, but also working with these struggling people to help them connect to services that can give the help they need.  We all need to work together to solve the housing crisis, and the caring community approach to policing has been a credit to the West.

 

West Auckland Business Club

I attended the opening presentations to the West Auckland Business Club on what is going on around the business community in the west, and I understand they had a very productive planning meeting for 2017. 

Local economic development will be a focus for the local board this year, getting our shops filled and getting jobs back in the West.  We’re excited for developments, and particularly excited by the progress toward a strong business voice in the greater Henderson area.  A Business Improvement District is key to the area, and plans are well advanced.

 

Whau Chinese New Year Festival

I had the pleasure of attending the Chinese New Year festival in New Lynn, inside our neighbouring Whau Local Board area.  It was another reminder that although events worldwide are troubling, West Auckland is a welcoming place that celebrates its diverse communities.  It was well attended by residents from all three West boards, with cultural performances, stalls and delicious food.  We can’t wait to show our neighbouring members around our diverse cultural events in Henderson-Massey throughout the year as well.

 


Busking on the Bridge

The covered bridge over Henderson Train Station will turn into a musical lounge from the 20th to the 24th of February, 3.30pm to 6.30pm, as buskers will be playing their tunes with a coffee cart and beanbags for you to enjoy the action.  This will provide our young Westies with valuable performance experience in a friendly environment, and hopefully a bit of coin as well.  I see this as an important event for the town centre, there is plenty of international examples where temporary interventions have sparked a new optimism and sense of place in the residents.  Come on down and enjoy the fantastic talent of the West on show, you won’t want to miss it.  Thanks to Zeal, Crescendo Trust and Angela McNoe for putting this on.

 

Local board budget planning progress

The local board will be shortly consulting on its annual budget, and we want to set ambitious targets on feedback from the local communities of our area.  If you’re reading this and you have views on how you’d like your community to be inspired and grown, please get in touch with your local board and make sure we get your feedback.

Allocation of funding to date

9.       Allocation of $1,691,000 was approved for the first programme of work in August 2015 for the following projects:

·    Project support liaising with NZTA representatives

·    Royal Reserve park development

·    Henderson Creek pontoon project

·    Corban Reserve dog agility course and

·    Massey Leisure Centre futsal court.

 

10.     Flanshaw Road Primary School requested that the HMLB consider a project to install a pontoon on the Henderson Creek to enable better access to the water for recreation. $40,000 was previously allocated to the Henderson Creek pontoon project.  This project has not progressed since the allocation of the funding.   The school is concerned about the water quality of the Henderson Creek and the project is now cancelled and the allocated sum available for reallocation.

11.     The remaining projects are either underway and on track or completed.

 

Allocation of remaining fund

12.     At the September 2016 business meeting the HMLB resolved that this remaining fund of $591,777 be allocated to public open space development projects as follows:

State Highway 16/20 Waterview Connection Project income update and approval of expenditure plan

 

Resolution number HM/2016/147

MOVED by Chairperson VS Neeson, seconded by Member B Brady:  

That the Henderson-Massey Local Board:

a)      note the forecasted income from New Zealand Transport Agency as part of the State Highway 16/20 Waterview Connection Project is now projected to be $2,282,777.

b)      approve the allocation of the New Zealand Transport Agency fund which is currently described as unallocated, to be targeted to the Henderson-Massey Local Board area for the development of public open space of:

i)       $52,000 in the 2016/2017 financial year; and

ii)      $539,777 in the 2017/2018 financial year.

Living Wage Briefing

Henderson-Massey Local Board

January 31st 2017

 

Key Facts

·    A majority of elected councillors pledged to support a Living Wage at Auckland Council.

·    At the December 15th 2016 Council meeting the Council voted to adopt the Mayors proposed Annual Plan for public consultation which included the implementation of the Living Wage for directly employed and CCO staff.

·    A Living Wage is already being implemented in NZ by over 60 large and small Living Wage accredited businesses

·    The Living Wage Movement is comprised of more than 70 organisations from community, union and faith-based groups

·    A Living Wage would support Auckland Council to turn around its current record of unequal distribution of income

·    Auckland Council can afford to pay a Living Wage and strategies are proposed (see link in this document)

·    A Living Wage is aligned with current council strategy, in particular, the Auckland Plan

·    The Living Wage commitment entails ensuring contracted workers, delivering services on a regular and ongoing basis, are not excluded from the equation

·    The Living Wage is a critical strategy in building a sustainable world making the Living Wage a significant concept for transformation

·    Local and international evidence supports the implementation of a Living Wage as making both moral and business sense

 

 

Action Sought

1.   That this Ward submits to the Annual Plan in support of a Living Wage, namely, to

a.   support a Living Wage for directly employed staff, and

b.   support a Living Wage for workers employed on a regular and on-going basis by contractors at Auckland Council and its CCO’s, including Auckland Transport.

Living Wage Auckland seek Local Board support in Annual Plan Submission

2.   The Living Wage Movement aspires to the transformation of our communities by ensuring working people can survive and participate in society. Auckland Council can contribute to this transformation by adopting the Living Wage in its employment and procurement strategies, modelling best practice, and making a real difference to the local and national economy.  A Living Wage means that workers, directly paid and employed by contractors on a regular and ongoing basis, are paid no less than the current Living Wage of $19.80 per hour. 

3.   In the last three years deputations have taken place at least once and secured the support of most Local Boards and three advisory panels (Pacific, Ethnic and Disability) along with the Maori Statutory Board.  Living Wage Auckland has participated in the consultation processes of the council advocating concrete steps toward becoming a Living Wage Employer at all stages of its annual democracy process.

4.   Living Wage Auckland held election forums in 2013 in association with key sectors of our Movement and in 2016 held two Peoples’ Assemblies (in West and Central Auckland).

5.   Commitments made during the 2016 election campaign could put Auckland Council on the map as it takes the first steps toward this goal in in the current term. The Movement seeks the establishment of a subcommittee of council involving Living Wage Auckland to ensure progress toward the staged implementation of a Living Wage.

6.   An advisory committee of the Governing Body of Auckland Council has been established to oversee implementation and includes a representative of our Movement. We are pleased to report the Mayor is serious.

7.   The Annual Plan will propose a Living Wage for directly employed council staff and those employed by CCOs.

8.   The Movement is committed to seeing some of the lowest paid workers in this city paid a decent wage they can survive on and thrive in this beautiful city of ours. We urge you to submit to the Annual Plan to

c.   support a Living Wage for directly employed staff, and

d.   support a Living Wage for workers employed on a regular and on-going basis by contractors at Auckland Council and its CCO’s, including Auckland Transport.

Supplementary information

1.   A Living Wage would support Auckland Council to turn around its current record of unequal distribution of income. A report states Auckland Council Group in 2015 had 1912 employees earning over $100,000. Auckland Council Group in the same year had 1840 workers earning less than the Living Wage. The number of employees earning less than the Living Wage is rising, rather than declining. At the same time, there have been sharp rises in the remuneration of some of the highestpaid employees at Auckland Council Group.  See report

2.   Auckland Council can afford to pay a Living Wage.  We estimated in 2013 that paying a Living Wage to Auckland Council employees and contractors would cost $6.95 million, less than 1% of the wage budget and only 0.015% of the council’s annual budget. The figures involved are tiny compared with the overall scale of the council’s business.  See  10 strategies to make the Living Wage affordable for Auckland Council   

3.   A proposition to implement a Living Wage is aligned with current council strategy, specifically, the Auckland Plan strategy is

a.   “to make Auckland an even better place than it is now, and create the world’s most liveable city. It shows how we will prepare for the additional one million people we may have to accommodate by 2040, and the 400,000 new homes needed.” (http://theplan.theaucklandplan.govt.nz/, page 10, paragraph 1)

4.   The Living Wage commitment entails ensuring contracted workers, delivering services on a regular and ongoing basis, are not excluded from the equation.  To do so would risk incentivising the contracting out of further services in order to achieve efficiencies. Further it would consign some of the lowest paid workers in the city, such as cleaners, to enduring poverty.  The procurement strategy requires the Council seek “best value over the lifecycle of goods, services or infrastructure” which requires the council to take into account environmental, economic, social and cultural matters when procuring goods, works and services.

5.   The Living Wage is a critical strategy in building a sustainable world - the commitment of the Governing Body to support a sustainable environment in its recent decision against drilling has placed an important marker in the sand.  Some have powerfully argued that environmental degradation is a side effect of inequality and current evidence shows

a.   social inequality leads to greater consumerism making it harder to contain economic activity within sustainable levels, and

b.   inequality within countries leads to greater environmental damage by undermining the collective voice needed for environmental protection.

c.   Living Wage Auckland is a force for change because it brings together organisations across civil society in common purpose but also because it provides one concrete step that can be taken to reduce working poverty and through redistribution, impact on inequality.

6.   Local and international evidence supports the implementation of a Living Wage as making both moral and business sense and has been a transformational tool in communities across the U.S, UK, and Canada.  Here in New Zealand annual research points to the positive impact on businesses and while our accredited employer cohort remains relatively small the findings each year are consistent. The 2014 report, The Difference a Living Wage Makes is indicative. See Report

Bike Te Atatu deputation to HMLB 7th February 2017

 

TOPIC: Working with Bike Te Atatu

 

PURPOSE: To establish a working relationship between Henderson-Massey Local Board and Bike Te Atatu, moving forward with the shared vision of making Te Atatu Peninsula a safe and easy place to use a bicycle for transport and to use Te Atatu Peninsula as a model suburb for bicycle provision across the whole HMLB area.

 

To seek funding for the “The Missing Link”.

 

SUMMARY:

Bike Te Atatu last made a deputation to HMLB in August 2014, regarding our proposal to make Te Atatu Peninsula a safe place for bicycle riders of all ages and abilities.

Whilst there has been no progress towards funding infrastructure changes (e.g. protected cycle lanes) there have been a number of developments in such as:

 

●    Increased support for Bike Te Atatu. Our Facebook group numbers have reached just over 500 members and we are part of a wider movement across Auckland – Bike Burbs – 20 similar suburban bike groups all aiming to have user-level input into making their suburbs safer places to bike.

●    Increase in the number of people getting around by bike: Rider numbers on the NW shared path (at Te Atatu) have gone up 34% since August 2014 (comparing 12 months prior to August 2014 and numbers for 12 months of 2016). This is partly due to the completion of improvements to the path, partly due to the increased availability and visibility of e-bikes and partly due to the motorway expansion making very little different to driving times. We would suggest it is also due to the failure of NZTA to build a dedicated bus corridor on the NW leading to people trying alternative methods of transport.

●    Legislative changes allowing lower speed limits. Recently NZTA has changed its guidelines to allow speed limits of 30km/hr to be set on minor or collector roads. This is a fundamental part of our proposal and we would be keen to see progress on this.

●    Te Whau Pathway has been started since our last deputation and we think implementation of our proposal would have a positive impact on this – allowing people to safely cycle all the way from Te Atatu Peninsula (and Te Atatu South) to the centre of New Lynn.

●    The adoption of the Unitary Plan predicts an increase in the population of Te Atatu Peninsula and giving people safe alternatives to driving is essential for its sustainability.

 

All of the above changes make our proposal even more relevant today. We are asking the Board to consider the following:

 

1.   Developing a closer working relationship with Bike Te Atatu. For this we propose quarterly meetings between Bike Te Atatu and HMLB, with each group reporting on progress made in pursuit of our main goal (implementation of our proposal).

2.   Asking Auckland Transport for updates on our delayed-but-possibly-upcoming Walking and Cycling area consultation as well as any related Greenway plans.

3.   Commiting to passing their views about active transport in our area on to Auckland Transport. We understand that any infrastructure changes and planning will be funded by AT, but support from the  local board is crucial.

 

The Missing Link

At the northern end of the Te Atatu Peninsula shared path, just south of Cellarmans Street, we have identified something we’ve called “The Missing Link” – approximately 80m at the edge of Harbourview Peoples Park joining the shared path with Danica Esplanade. Currently cyclists trying to access the Waimanu Bay area – east of Te Atatu Road and south of Harbourview Road – stay on the pavement here until Cellarmans Road, which is both illegal and narrow, and passes a bus stop and childcare centre with plenty of opportunity for conflict with pedestrians. Building a new extension/branch of the shared path here would open up a safe route for residents of Waimanu Bay and probably people heading further north up Beach Road. 

 

We would like to see funding provided by the Local Board to complete this missing link.
