Waitematā Local Board

Adoption of the Waitematā Local Board Agreement 2018/2019

 

File No.: CP2018/09454

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.       To adopt a Local Board Agreement 2018/2019 including a message from the chair, local board advocacy and a local fees and charges schedule for 2018/2019.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       Each financial year, Auckland Council must have a local board agreement between the Governing Body and each local board.

3.       From 28 February to 28 March 2018 Auckland Council consulted on the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 which included local board priorities.

4.       Local boards have considered this feedback and then held discussions with the Finance and Performance Committee on 16 and 17 May 2018 on regional issues, community feedback and key local board initiatives, including the board’s one local initiative and other advocacy areas.

5.       Local boards are now considering local content for the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 which includes a local board agreement incorporating a message from the chair, local board advocacy, and a local fees and charges schedule for 2018/2019.

6.       On 28 June 2018, the Governing Body will meet to adopt Auckland Council’s 10-year Budget 2018-2028, including 21 local board agreements.

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Waitematā Local Board:

a)      adopts local content for the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 (Attachment A), including:

i.          a Local Board Agreement 2018/2019

ii.          a message from the Chair

iii.         local board advocacy.

b)      adopts local fees and charges schedules for 2018/2019 (Attachment B).

c)      delegates authority to the Chair to make any final minor changes to the local content for the 10-year Budget 2018-2028, including the Local Board Agreement 2018/2019.

d)      notes:

i.        that Local Board Agreement 2018/2019 local activity budgets will be updated to reflect final budget decisions made by the Governing Body on 31 May 2018

ii.       that if there are outstanding (not yet agreed) matters in the Local Board Agreement 2018/2019, the local board should include an explanation of these matters in the Chair’s message at the front of the agreement

iii.      that the resolutions of this meeting will be reported back to the Governing Body when it meets to adopt the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 on 28 June 2018.

 

Horopaki / Context

7.       Local board plans are strategic documents that are developed every three years to set a direction for local boards. Local board plans influence and inform the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 (and associated local board agreements) which in turn outlines priorities, budgets and intended levels of service over a 10-year period and for each financial year.

8.       Auckland Council must have a local board agreement between the Governing Body and each local board.

9.       Local boards have had the opportunity to attend the Finance and Performance Committee workshops on key topics and provide local board views on the 10-year Budget 2018-2028.

10.     From 28 February to 28 March 2018, Council consulted with the public on the 10-year Budget 2018-2028. Three formal events and a number of awareness raising events were held in the Waitematā Local Board area to engage with the community and seek feedback on both regional and local proposals.

11.     A report analysing the feedback on local board priorities, as well as feedback from those living in the local board area related to the regional issues was considered and resolved on at the board’s business meeting on 3 May 2018.

12.     At the 3 May 2018 business meeting the Waitematā Local Board also approved its advocacy initiatives, including its key advocacy project (Ponsonby Park at 254 Ponsonby Road), for inclusion as an appendix to its 2018/2019 Local Board Agreement and to inform discussions with the Finance and Performance Committee.

13.     Local boards held discussions with the Finance and Performance Committee on 16 and 17 May 2018 on regional issues, community feedback and key local board initiatives and advocacy areas.

14.     Following further deliberation by the local board on the Long-term Plan 2018-2028 feedback and review of the Regional Land Transport Plan consultation outcomes the list of advocacy positions was amended and an additional advocacy position of support towards MOTAT’s redevelopment was included.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

15.     Both staff and the local board have reviewed the feedback received on 10-year Budget 2018-2028 and local boards have received a report analysing the feedback.

16.     It is now recommended that local boards adopt local content for the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 (Attachment A), including the Local Board Agreement 2018/2019, and a local fees and charges schedule for 2018/2019 (Attachment B).

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe /

Local impacts and local board views

17.     This report seeks local board adoption of its content for the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 and other associated material, including the Local Board Agreement 2018/2019.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori / Māori impact statement

18.     Many local board decisions are of importance to and impact on Māori. Local board agreements and the 10-year Budget are important tools that enable and can demonstrate council’s responsiveness to Māori. 

19.     Local board plans, which were developed in 2017 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.

20.     Of those who submitted to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 from the Waitematā Local Board area four per cent identified as Māori.  Three iwi entities from the Waitematā Local Board rohe also made a submission to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028. These submissions were provided to the local board for consideration when finalising their local board agreement.

21.     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.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea / Financial implications

22.     The local board agreement includes the allocation of locally driven initiatives (LDI) funding and asset based services (ABS) funding to projects and services for the 2018/2019 financial year.

23.     Funding for locally driven initiatives (LDI) is discretionary funding that local boards can spend on local priorities that are important to their communities.

24.     Funding for asset based services (ABS) is required to run and maintain local assets including parks, pools and recreation facilities, community facilities, and libraries.

25.     A local fees and charges schedule for 2018/2019 is adopted alongside of the Local Board Agreement 2018/2019.

Ngā raru tūpono / Risks

26.     Decisions on the local content of the 10-year Budget 2018-2028, including the Local Board Agreement 2018/2019 and a local fees and charges schedule for 2018/2019, are required by 7 June 2018 to ensure the Governing Body can adopt the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 at its 28 June 2018 meeting.

Ngā koringa ā-muri / Next steps

27.     The resolutions of this meeting will be reported to the Governing Body on 28 June 2018 when it meets to adopt the 10-year Budget 2018-2028, including 21 local board agreements.

28.     It is possible that minor changes may need to be made to the attachments before the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 is adopted, such as correction of any errors identified and minor wording changes. Staff therefore recommend that the local board delegates authority to the Chair to make final changes if necessary.

29.     Local board agreements set the priorities and budget envelopes for each financial year. Work programmes then detail the activities that will be delivered within those budget envelopes. Work programmes will be agreed between local boards and operational departments at business meetings in June 2018.
