Local board decisions and input into the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028

File No.: CP2019/04906

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To approve local financial matters for the local board agreement 2019/2020, which need to be considered by the Governing Body in the Annual Budget 2019/2020 process.

2.       To seek feedback on regional topics in the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

3.       Auckland Council’s Annual Budget contains 21 local board agreements which are the responsibility of local boards. These agreements set out local funding priorities, budgets, levels of service and performance measures. This report seeks decisions on local financial matters for the local board agreement, including:

·        any new/amended business improvement district (BID) targeted rates

·        any new/amended local targeted rate proposals 

·        proposed locally driven initiative (LDI) capital projects outside local boards’ decision-making responsibility

·        release of local board specific reserve funds

·        any advocacy initiatives (to be included in the appendix).

4.       Auckland Council consulted with the public from 17 February to 17 March 2019 to seek community views on the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and the proposed amendment to the 10‑year Budget 2018-2028, and local board priorities to be included in the local board agreements. This report seeks local board views on both of these plans:

·        regional annual budget topics: including changes to rates and fees, the draft Tūpuna Maunga o Tamaki Makaurau Authority – Operational Plan 2019/2020, and other budget information

·        the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 regarding property transfers.

5.       Auckland Council also consulted on the Our Water Future discussion document. A draft strategy from the Our Water Future discussion document will be developed. Local boards will have the opportunity to provide input into this in early 2020.

6.       Local board views on these regional plans will be considered by the Governing Body (or relevant committee) before making final decisions on the plans.

Recommendations

That the Great Barrier Local Board:

h)      provide feedback on the Annual Budget 2019/2020.

i)        provide feedback on the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028.

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       Local board agreements form part of the Auckland Council’s annual budget and set out local funding priorities, budgets, levels of service and performance measures. This report details local board decisions and recommendations that need to be made in April/early-May to allow them to be considered by the Governing Body in the annual budget process.

8.       Local boards also advocate to the Governing Body for funding for projects that cannot be accommodated within their local budgets. These advocacy initiatives are attached as an appendix to the local board agreement.

9.       Local boards are responsible for providing local input into regional strategies, policies and plans. Local board plans reflect community priorities and preferences and are key documents that guide both the development of local board agreements and input into regional plans.

10.     Auckland Council publicly consulted on the following two plans from 17 February to 17 March 2019:

·        annual budget (which includes both regional issues and local board key priorities) 

·        the proposed amendment to the 10-year budget.

11.     Across the region, 2278 people attended 65 engagement events. Feedback was received through written, event and social media channels.

12.     Consultation feedback on the Aotea Great Barrier Local Board priorities for 2019/2020 and on regional proposals in the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and the proposed amendment to the 10‑year budget regarding property transfers from people or organisations based in the Aotea Great Barrier Local Board area are set out in Attachment A. The feedback on local board priorities will be considered by the local board before they agree their local board agreement in early June 2019.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

Local financial matters for the local board agreement

13.     This report allows the local board to agree its input and recommend other local financial matters to the Governing Body in early May 2019. This is to allow time for the Governing Body to consider these items in the annual budget process (decisions made in June 2019).

Local targeted rate and business improvement district (BID) targeted rate proposals

14.     Local boards are required to endorse any new locally targeted rate proposals or BID targeted rate proposals in their local board area (noting that any new local targeted rates and/or BIDs must have been consulted on before they can be implemented).

Funding for locally driven initiatives (LDI)

15.     Local boards are allocated funding annually to spend on local projects or programmes that are important to their communities. This funding is for ‘locally driven initiatives’ or LDI. Local boards can approve LDI capital projects up to $1 million; projects over that amount need approval from the Governing Body. 

16.     Local boards can recommend to the Governing Body to convert LDI operational funding to capital expenditure for 2019/2020 if there is a specific need to do so, or Governing Body approval may be needed for the release of local board specific reserve funds, which are funds being held by the council for a specific purpose.

17.     Local boards can defer LDI projects where there was an agreed scope and cost, but the project/s have not been delivered.

Local board advocacy

18.     Local boards are requested to approve any advocacy initiatives for consideration by the Governing Body and inclusion (as an appendix) to the 2019/2020 Local Board Agreement, noting that in this triennium, a longer-term approach has been taken to progress initiatives that are unable to be funded by local board budgets. The approach used the annual budget, 10-year budget and local board plan processes to progress and advise on a narrower range of local board initiatives in a more comprehensive way.

19.     As part of the 10-year Budget 2018-2028, additional funding was provided to progress the priority advocacy initiative of each local board (the one local initiative (OLI)). All OLIs are progressing with funding either allocated or earmarked in the 10-year budget. 

Local board input on regional plans

20.     Local boards have a statutory responsibility for identifying and communicating the interests and preferences of the people in its local board area in relation to the context of the strategies, policies, plans, and bylaws of Auckland Council. This report provides an opportunity for the local board to provide input on two plans, the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 regarding property transfers. 

Regional issues in the Annual Budget 2019/2020

21.     The annual budget sets out Auckland Council priorities and how it is going to pay for them. The regional consultation on the proposed annual budget focused on two topics:

·        changes to rates and fees

o   annual waste management changes

o   food scraps targeted rate

o   Waitākere rural sewerage targeted rate

o   urban boundary rating

o   rating of religious use properties

o   regulatory fees

·        draft Tūpuna Maunga o Tamaki Makaurau Authority – Operational Plan 2019/2020.

22.     The consultation on the annual budget also included key priorities for each local board area. Decisions on local board priorities will be made when local board agreements are considered in June 2019.

23.     The feedback form contained one question relating to changes to rates and fees. Consultation feedback received from the Aotea Great Barrier Local Board area on key regional issues in the annual budget are summarised in Attachment A, along with an overview of any other areas of feedback on regional proposals with a local impact.

24.     Local boards may wish to provide feedback on these regional issues for consideration by the Governing Body. 

The proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 regarding property transfers

25.     The regional consultation on the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 focused on a proposal to transfer the legal ownership of $790 million of city centre waterfront properties from Panuku to Auckland Council. Panuku would continue to manage the properties. The resulting ownership structure would reduce governance duplication, increase consistency with other development areas and maximise future flexibility.

26.     The feedback form contained one question relating to this proposed amendment. Consultation feedback received from the Aotea Great Barrier Local Board area on the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 regarding property transfers is summarised in Attachment A.

27.     Local boards may wish to provide feedback on the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 regarding property transfers for consideration by the Governing Body.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

28.     The Annual Budget 2019/2020 is an Auckland Council group document and will include budgets at a consolidated group level. Consultation items and updates to budgets to reflect decisions and new information may include items from across the group.

29.     The key impact of the proposed amendment to the 10-year budget regarding property transfers on the group is the potential impact on Panuku. Panuku staff and board have been engaged in the development of these options. Governing Body will make their decision regarding this on 20 June 2019.

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

Local impacts and local board views

30.     Local board decisions and feedback are being sought in this report. Local boards have a statutory role in providing local board feedback on regional plans.

31.     Local boards play an important role in the development of the annual budget and local board agreements form part of the annual budget. Local board nominees have also attended Finance and Performance Committee workshops on the annual budget, and a special briefing was arranged on the proposed amendment to the 10-year budget regarding property transfers.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

32.     Many local board decisions are of importance to and impact on Māori. Local board agreements and the annual budget are important tools that enable and can demonstrate council’s responsiveness to Māori.

33.     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.

34.     Attachment A includes analysis of submissions made by mana whenua and mataawaka entities who have interests in the rohe/local board area.

35.     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

36.     This report is asking for local board decisions on financial matters in local board agreements that need to then be considered by the Governing Body.

37.     Local boards are also providing input to regional plans. There is information in the consultation material for each plan with the financial implications of different options.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

38.     Local boards need to make recommendations on these local financial matters for the Annual Budget 2019/2020 by 8 May 2019, in order for the Governing Body to be able to make decisions on them when considering the annual budget in May 2019.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

39.     Local boards will approve their local board agreements and corresponding work programmes in June.

40.     Recommendations and feedback from local boards will be provided to the relevant Governing Body committees for consideration during decision-making, as outlined in the table below:

Additions to the 2016-2019 Great Barrier Local Board meeting schedule

File No.: CP2019/04311

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek approval for one meeting date to be added to the 2016-2019 Great Barrier Local Board meeting schedule to accommodate the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and proposed amendment to 10-Year Budget 2018-2028 timeframes.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Great Barrier Local Board adopted the 2016-2019 meeting schedule on Tuesday, 15 November 2016 (Resolution number GBI/2016/149).

3.       At that time the specific times and dates for meetings for local board decision making in relation to the local board agreement as part of the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and proposed amendment to 10-Year Budget 2018-2028 were unknown. 

4.       The board is being asked to approve one meeting date as an addition to the Great Barrier Local Board meeting schedule so that the Annual Budget 2019/2020 timeframes can be met.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendations

That the Great Barrier Local Board:

a)      approve one meeting date to be added to the 2016-2019 Great Barrier Local Board meeting schedule to accommodate the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and proposed amendment to 10-Year Budget 2018-2028 timeframes as follows:

·   Tuesday, 4 June 2019, 1,00pm.

b)      note the venue for this meeting will be the Claris Conference Centre, 19 Whangaparapara Road, Claris, Great Barrier Island.

 

 

Horopaki

Context

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

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

·    Schedule 7, clause 19 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.

·    Part 7, sections 46, 46(A) and 47 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.

7.       The Great Barrier Local Board adopted its business meeting schedule at its Tuesday, 15 November 2016 business meeting.

8.       The timeframes for local board decision making in relation to the local board agreement which is part of the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and proposed amendment to 10-Year Budget 2018-2028 were unavailable when the meeting schedule was originally adopted.

9.       The board is being asked to make decisions in early June to feed into the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and proposed amendment to 10-Year Budget 2018-2028 process. This timeframe is outside the board’s normal meeting cycle. 

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

10.     The board has two options:

i)        Add the meeting as an addition to the meeting schedule.

or

ii)       Add the meeting as an extraordinary meeting.

11.     For option one, statutory requirements allow enough time for this meeting to be scheduled as an addition to the meeting schedule and other topics may be considered as per any other ordinary meeting. However, there is a risk that if the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and proposed amendment to 10-Year Budget 2018-2028 timeframes change or the information is not ready for the meeting there would need to be an additional extraordinary meeting scheduled anyway.

12.     For option two, only the specific topic Annual Budget 2019/2020 and proposed amendment to 10-Year Budget 2018-2028 may be considered for which the meeting is being held. There is a risk that no other policies or plans with similar timeframes or running in relation to the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and proposed amendment to 10-Year Budget 2018-2028 process could be considered at this meeting.

13.     Since there is enough time to meet statutory requirements, staff recommend approving these meetings as additions to the meeting schedule as it allows more flexibility for the board to consider a range of issues.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

14.     There is no specific impact for the council group from this report.

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

Local impacts and local board views

15.     This report requests the board’s decision to schedule an additional meeting and consider whether to approve this as an extraordinary meeting or an addition to the meeting schedule.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

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

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

17.     There are no financial implications in relation to this report apart from the standard costs associated with servicing a business meeting.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

18.     There are no significant risks associated with this report.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

19.     Implement the processes associated with preparing for business meetings.

Okiwi Park – pump track installation

File No.: CP2019/03023

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       For the Aotea Great Barrier Local Board to approve local improvements projects (LIPs) capital budget for the Okiwi Park – pump track installation.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       In 2016 a concrete pathway was built through Okiwi Park, proving very popular with the local community seeking facilities for biking and skating.

3.       Public consultation undertaken in 2018 with Okiwi school resulted in a clear request for the provision of additional bike and skate facilities within the reserve.

4.       Community Services undertook a strategic assessment in relation to the recreational service requirements for the local community and supported the installation of a modular style pump track in Okiwi Park.

5.       The strategic assessment identified an initial cost estimate for the project of $80,000. The initial estimate excluded a range of cost items. The revised estimate for the delivery of the modular pump track described in the strategic assessment project is $130,000.

6.       This report seeks approval for the allocation of up to $130,000 financial year 2018/2019 LIPs capital funding to progress the installation of modular pump style track for Okiwi Park.

 

Te tūtohunga

Recommendation

That the Great Barrier Local Board:

a)      approve funding of up to $130,000 from the financial year 2018/2019 Local Improvement Projects capital budget line to Okiwi Park – pump track installation.

 

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       Okiwi Park at 2.84 hectares is the largest public open space in the north of Great Barrier Island.  It is one of the few pieces of flat, open land in public ownership large enough for a facility of this size.

8.       Okiwi Park is zoned Open space 2 (recreation and community facilities) under the Auckland Council District Plan - Hauraki Gulf Islands.

9.       In 2016 the local board funded with their LIPs capital funding for a concrete pathway to be built through the park. This pathway has undulating sections and has proved very popular with local kids from the neighbouring Okiwi School looking for somewhere to bike and skate.

10.     Through public consultation undertaken in partnership with the local board during 2018, Okiwi school children requested for additional bike and skate facilities within the park.

11.     Their feedback received identified a modular style of pump track would be utilised very well.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

12.     It is proposed to install a simple modular pump track similar to the Parklife ‘Parkitect Speedring’ product that is not permanently installed and can be relocated to other sites.

13.     The installation of a modular style pump track that can be re locatable will provide great benefit to Aotea Great Barrier Island residents and visitors alike through the provision of an all-weather bike and skate facility that encourages them to get active and test their skills.

14.     The cost estimate provided by Community Services to the local board of $80,000 was for the purchase only of the kit set modular style pump track.

15.     This estimate did not allow for the following:

·    site investigation into water table challenges and land topography

·    transportation of the track set to Aotea Great Barrier Island and the Okiwi Park location

·    vegetation clearance of the site, preparation for the basecourse and forming of a level site.

·    creation of a base Couse compacted 100mm thick as a platform for the track

·    installation and professional services costs and contingency.

16.     Costs not included in the strategic assessment cost estimate have been estimated at and additional $50,000, with the total project cost estimated at $130,000. This estimate is the best high-level estimate that can be provided with the information available at this time.

17.     Upon approval of the project to progress, site investigations will be undertaken to confirm the viability of the location and confirm the project can still be achieved within the $130,000 budget approved.

18.     Should the preferred location for the pump track to be installed raise unforeseen challenges upon completion of the investigation phase, officers will bring the project back to the local board for discussion and further approval will be sought as to its continuation.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

19.     Community Services have identified there is a service need within the local community for a skate and bike facility of this type.

20.     Community Facilities operations team have given their support for the pump track to be installed.

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

Analysis and advice

Report on Auckland Transport projects and activities

6.       Please see below for information on Auckland Transport’s activities:

Activity

Update

Claris Airfield

Ongoing gorse removal on northern side of airfield being undertaken during March.

998 flight movements at Claris recorded for March 2019

Shoal Bay and Whangaparapara wharves

Contractor (STF) will install new mooring pile for Coastguard use, as well as new fenders & ladder for this berth. 

STF commencing work at Glenfern wharf 13th May.

Shoal Bay works to be completed prior by 10th May.

Cowshed Bridge

Repair works being programmed with contractor.

Previous update:

A Bailey Bridge has been installed to allow safe access underneath the original bridge. Our contractors will now be able to determine if our original assessment of the damage and the necessary repairs is correct. If the damage is greater than originally determined it may be necessary for further investigation.

Karaka Bay Road

Potential new passing bays have been marked out and our contractor Downers has engaged to deliver these improvements.

Delivery of works are being agreed with contractor.

Slips on Puriri Bay Road

Two designs completed and two sites awaiting agreement on preferred option before lodgment of consents. Following meeting with AT planners, a pre-lodgment meeting to be scheduled.

Previous update:

The seawall is being monitored. Consultants are working on designs for repairing the sections with storm damage. Work will proceed when the necessary consents and coastal consents are obtained.

Slips on Aotea Road

Auckland Transports contractor is investigating the slip. Options are currently being developed.

Subsidence on Shoal Bay Road at Pah Beach

Coastal erosion engineers have investigated and advised Auckland Transport that “retreat” is required, which will involve removing the historic stone wall where koiwi have been exposed in the past.  It needs to be monitored/measured to establish just how much it is moving and if it’s going to affect the road. 

Downer have been requested to provide a plan for consideration by AT Planners.

 

Local Board Transport Capital Fund

7.       As of the new electoral term Aotea Great Barrier Local Board had $328,104 in their Local Board Transport Capital Fund.

8.       Following the proposal to increase the Local Board Transport Capital Fund, the allocation to the board has increased by $189,732 and is now $517,836.

9.       From this the Board has committed:

·   $68,000 for a dust seal on Sandhills Road.

·   $20,000 for remediation of fish passages in the culverts on the island.

·   $350,196 for road sealing on Kaiaraara Road

This leaves $79,640 unallocated.

10.     Auckland Transport has completed investigations into rough orders of costs for the following projects:

·   To provide a walkway on Whangaparapara Road from the Cross Road to the Hot Pool access, for a cost of $63,000

·   To complete the remaining sections of the Hector Sanderson from Claris Café to the Cross Roads for $287,624

·   Sealing of Puriri Bay Road for $409,450

·   Sealing of Whangaparapara Road for $852,425

The board asked if Auckland Transport would be able to contribute to any of the costs for these sealing projects and unfortunately at this point there is not the funding available to do so.

11.     Auckland Transport has also been requested to investigate a rough order of cost for:

·   Traffic calmers at Claris settlement

12.     Auckland Transport has also been requested to investigate into rough orders of costs for the following projects, but at the board’s request has suspended them to focus on other projects:

·   For solutions in the road corridor to address Claris shopping centre carparking safety and congestion issues.

·   Shoal Bay footpath (from Mulberry Grove School to Shoal Bay wharf).

Community Safety Fund

13.     The Community Safety Fund is a capital budget established by Auckland Transport for use by local boards to fund local road safety initiatives. The purpose of this fund is to allow elected members to address long-standing road safety issues that are not regional priorities and are therefore being addressed by the Auckland Transport programme.

14.     As this fund is designed to address local road safety concerns it is allocated by local board area. It has been apportioned by a formula focused on numbers of Deaths and Serious Injuries (DSI). This is a finite fund that must be spent by 30 June 2021. Unlike the Local Board Transport Capital Fund there is no ability to carry it over into future financial years.

15.     Great Barrier Local Board’s allocation is $252,758.

16.     The criteria of what qualifies for the fund is as follows: “Physical measures raised by the local community to prevent, control or mitigate identified local road and street safety hazards which expose people using any form of road and street transport to demonstrable hazards which may result in death or serious harm. Individual project cost is to be no greater than $1 million.  Projects must consist of best practice components, conform to AT standards and comply with New Zealand law.”

Fish Passage remediation on Aotea Great Barrier

17.     Following site visits from Auckland Transport, Environmental Services and Healthy Waters, a prioritised list of sites for fish passage remediation is being developed.

18.     This list will take into account the number and type of species, amount of habitat being blocked and likely cost of remediation.

19.     Once this list is complete and an idea of the solutions are gathered it will be possible to develop a plan for remediation.

Great Barrier Island Potable Water Project Report

File No.: CP2019/04780

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To receive the AoteaOra Community Trust’s report on the Great Barrier Island Potable Water Project.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       In April 2018, the Great Barrier Local Board allocated $10,000 to the AoteaOra Community Trust to run a potable water-testing project for island residents (Resolution number GBI/2018/27).

3.       There are multiple issues with household drinking water supply on Great Barrier Island - from source to collection to treatment, including a lack of treatment.

4.       The Potable Water Project aims to identify and quantify local water quality issues and initiate steps to solve them.

5.       The project was carried out on the island during the second half of 2018.

6.       In February 2019, the AoteaOra Trust submitted a report on the completed project. (Attachment A).

 

Te tūtohunga

Recommendation

That the Great Barrier Local Board:

a)      receive the “Potable Water Project, Great Barrier Island” report (Attachment A of the agenda report).

 

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       In April 2018, the Great Barrier Local Board allocated $10,000 to the AoteaOra Community Trust to run a potable water-testing project for island residents (Resolution number GBI/2018/27).

8.       The project – a “drinking water education and awareness raising programme” - was developed in response to concerns about poor potable (drinking) water quality within the community and a lack of awareness around the potential ill-health effects of this on both residents and visitors.

9.       The Potable Water project’s objectives are to:

i.          increase awareness and knowledge within the community about the importance of good quality drinking water, the water collection system (from intake or collection zone, tank to tap) and maintenance

ii.          increase awareness and knowledge within the community on water quality parameters and the potential ill effects poor water quality can have on health

iii.         increase awareness and knowledge within the community on how to improve water collection systems and treatment options.

10.     The project’s scope includes the delivery of two public workshops, the distribution of home water-testing kits to workshop attendees, an information stall at a community market and a survey of community facility buildings on the island.

11.     AoteaOra contracted local environmental consultants Sustainable Aotea to manage the project.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

12.     There are multiple issues with household drinking water supply on Aotea Great Barrier - from source to collection to treatment (including a lack of treatment).

13.     The Potable Water Project aimed to identify and quantify these issues, for instance by testing individual household water supplies and to initiate initial steps to solve them, such as educating community members around specific measures to improve water quality.

14.     The project as a whole can be considered very successful with 60 people attending the two public workshops (42 people at the Tryphena Hall workshop on 3 November 2018, and 18 people at Okiwi School workshop on 10 November 2018).

15.     Fifty ‘Water Check Now’ water quality test kits were distributed to all workshops attendees.

16.     Workshop participants were asked to provide feedback via a survey. The survey results are detailed in the attached report (Attachment A).

17.     Key concerns among residents who took part in the workshops were microbiological (e.g. bacteria, viruses and protozoa) contamination of their water, discoloration, taste and the presence of heavy metals.

18.     According to the report, many in the community want to know the quality of their water but are unable to afford water testing kits. In addition, many residents are unable to afford retrofits, upgrades, or the new products required to help improve their current water collection system.

19.     The Potable Water Project also involved a survey of 17 Community Facilities on Great Barrier Island, in order to gain a better understanding of the water collection systems, current treatment process (or lack of) and water quality at these premises.

20.     The survey identified that six community facilities have appropriate water collection systems and are theoretically providing safe drinking water to the public. However, the survey also found the water collection systems at the remaining 11 facilities could be improved in order to provide safer water to the public.

21.     The report notes the importance of the local board’s work in the area of water quality and the value it brings to the community. It also highlights that further work in this area is necessary and outlines (in section 5) some options for next steps.

22.     The report notes that “whilst this programme has been successful … it only reached a small percentage of the community. Given the importance of clean safe water to human health and the evident issue of lack of knowledge or awareness on the impacts poor water quality can have or lack of tools to improve, it is considered of extreme value to the community for more work to be focused in the area”.

23.     The local board is scheduled to meet with AoteaOra Trust members and Sustainable Aotea at a workshop in April 2019 to discuss the report’s recommendations for next steps, including possible further work.

24.     A review of relevant literature and public documents from regional public health organisations, regional councils and water quality specialists was undertaken to inform the Potable Water project.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

25.     The work that the Great Barrier Local Board is doing on freshwater quality aligns with council’s region-wide Healthy Waterways Programme.

26.     Sustainable Aotea works with the Auckland Council Healthy Waters team on other freshwater management projects on Great Barrier Island, such as stream monitoring and septic tank improvements.

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

Local impacts and local board views

27.     The Potable Water Project has already had a tangible effect in the community, with several households taking the necessary steps to improve their drinking water supplies.

28.     Additional work the local board may choose to do in this area is likely to also have a significant and positive impact by building on the achievements of the project.

29.     The project is not a part of the local board’s freshwater management programme, however it aligns with the local board’s strong commitment to improving water quality on the island and initiatives, in conjunction with the Aotea Health Trust, to achieve better public health outcomes as a result of safer water supplies.

30.     The project forms part of a broader Aotea Great Barrier freshwater management programme, a comprehensive local board programme of water quality improvement projects on Great Barrier Island. Other initiatives include septic tank inspections and education and waterways protection.

31.     Initiatives carried out to improve the island’s drinking water quality align with the Great Barrier Local Board Plan 2017 priority: Our people thrive and life is good.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

32.     Motairehe Marae and Kawa Marae on Great Barrier Island were surveyed as part of the Potable Water Project. Whilst specific survey results are confidential, the survey’s facilitator notes that positive feedback was received from both marae.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

33.     Financial implications will depend on the further work the local board chooses to do to further improve the island’s potable drinking water quality. Options for further work are detailed in section 5.1 of the report (Attachment A).

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

34.     Should the local board not undertake further work in the area of water quality, there is a risk that water sources on the island could stagnate or decline, with public health compromised as a result.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

35.     The attached report outlines options for next steps for the local board’s consideration. They are summarised below as:

i)          further education and awareness work within the community on the importance of safe drinking water

ii)         funding of free water collection assessments; funding towards beneficial retrofit products; bulk purchase of water tanks offered at discounted prices to those switching from stream to rainwater supply

iii)         a targeted education and awareness project for Holiday Home Owners and Visitors

iv)        development of a ‘Safe Drinking Water’ information pack which could be posted out to community residents and/or tailored for holiday home owners

v)         a subsidy scheme for government funding towards improvement of households water quality.

36.     The Great Barrier Local Board will meet to discuss potential next steps with AoteaOra Trust and Sustainable Aotea at a local board workshop in April 2019.
