19

Department of Conservation proposal to revoke Reserves Act 1977 delegations

 

Eric Perry, Relationship Manager, Local Board Services, was in attendance to address the board in support of this item.

 

A document titled ‘Draft submission for feedback – Department of Conservation proposal’ was tabled. A copy of the tabled document has been placed on the official minutes and is available on the Auckland Council website as a minutes attachment.

 

 

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson D Grant, seconded by Chairperson J Gillon:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)         recommend that no decision on the proposed changes to the Reserves Act 1977 Ministerial delegations be made until the appeal of the Opua Coastal Preservation Inc v Far North District Council [2018] NZCA 262 decision to the Supreme Court has been completed;

b)        provide the following feedback on the Auckland Council Proposal on the revocation of certain delegations to territorial authorities under the Reserves Act 1977 submission:

i)     conditionally support the council’s position to not support the proposal to revoke 44 of the 50 Ministerial powers within the Reserves Act 1977, delegated to local authorities, subject to the following:

1.    all decision-making for local parks and reserves is allocated to local boards, and that the allocated decision-making under the Parks, Community and Lifestyle’ activity for the Governing Body with respect to parks be amended to read ‘acquisition and divestment of all park land, including the disposal of surplus parks, contingent upon receiving approval from the affected local board(s) for disposal prior to decision-making by the Governing Body’.  

2.    transparency between the Governing Body and Local Board is increased to ensure that decisions are made in line with the delegations as outlined in the Governance Framework Review;

ii)    supports the following submission points:

1.    that substantive justification for the proposed revocation of delegations has not been proven, and a clear identification of the problems exercising dual delegations by councils under the Reserves Act 1977 is lacking;

2.    that the proposed revocation of delegations will undermine local decision-making and community outcomes and it would be a backwards step to undo decision-making at the local level for local communities;

3.    that the proposed revocation of delegations will add significant delays to all Reserves Act 1977 processes, and council’s ability to be responsive to communities will be severely impacted;

4.    that the revocation of delegations will mean that the Minister of Conservation (or delegate) will largely focus on whether procedural steps were followed, and decision-making would be undertaken with little understanding of local issues;

iii)   request the addition of the following submission point:

1.    that the costs associated with the Department of Conservation’s processing of applications has not been stipulated, and therefore it is unclear how this will impact on Auckland Council ratepayers and project budgets;

iv)   note that it is premature to justify changes to the Reserves Act 1977 Ministerial delegations, as they are based on comments made by the Court of Appeal in its decision of Opua Coastal Preservation Inc v Far North District Council [2018] NZCA 262, and this case has also been appealed to the Supreme Court;

v)    recommend a full review of the Reserves Act 1977, rather than an update of the Reserves Act Guide 2004, as noted in the council submission;

vi)   support other key points highlighted in the council submission, which include:

1.    council has significant experience exercising its responsibilities and delegations under the Reserves Act 1977;

2.    council has invested in processes, systems and practices to allow robust dual decision-making, while managing any potential or actual conflicts of interest;

3.    the Ministerial delegations are essential for council to manage the enormous scale and volume of decisions that are required for the effective and efficient administration of reserves, as required under the Reserves Act 1977.

Resolution number KT/2019/57

MOVED by Chairperson J Gillon, seconded by Deputy Chairperson D Grant:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)      receive consultation feedback on the Kaipātiki Local Board priorities for 2019/2020 as tabled.

b)        approve the following advocacy initiatives for inclusion (as an appendix) to its 2019/2020 Local Board Agreement:

Key Advocacy Project

Description

Birkenhead War Memorial Park Redevelopment

To respond to aging infrastructure and changing community needs, the board has commissioned a masterplan to be developed for Birkenhead War Memorial Park. The masterplan is intended to provide a vision for the park and guide the park’s development over the next 30 years.

 

The deconstruction of the condemned grandstand was the first phase of the project. This was completed in October 2018.

 

The second phase of the project is the regeneration of the park based on the masterplan. The masterplan is expected to be adopted in August 2019, following a period of public consultation in April 2019

 

Delivering the masterplan will require significant investment and will need to occur over a number of years. Funding this is beyond the usual resources available to the local board and so we need the Governing Body’s continued support by way of allocated funding in the 10-year Budget.

Other Advocacy Initiatives

Description

Northcote Development

The Kaipātiki Local Board has long supported and advocated for the strategic values of Northcote to deliver both housing intensification and commercial development.

 

To support this rapid growth, the Kaipātiki Local Board advocates for the provision of a quality public realm, and community facilities investment in Northcote. Specifically, the Kaipātiki Local Board advocates for improved urban amenity, maximum public open space, a destination playground, cycling links, public art, inclusion of cultural and heritage aspects, sustainability (eg roof gardens, rain gardens), retention of mature trees, and a new community building.  

 

This will support and complement both Panuku Development Auckland Limited and Homes, Land and Community’s planned investments to make Northcote an exemplar for urban renewal.

Kauri die-back prevention in Kaipātiki

Protection of green spaces is a key focus for our community. During the 2018/2019 financial year, preventing the spread of Kauri dieback disease in our forests was of significant concern. The local board pre-emptively closed a number of bush tracks as there are significant numbers of Kauri trees in our local reserves.

 

The Kaipātiki Local Board strongly supported the introduction of the Natural Environment Targeted Rate (NETR) through the 10-year Budget 2018-2028. The local board now continues its advocacy that the Kaipātiki Local Board area is acknowledged as having Kauri forest of regional importance and therefore receive adequate investment from the NETR to protect this important taonga.

Pest Free Kaipātiki

Continued support for the implementation of the Pest Free Kaipātiki strategy (2016) by resourcing the components which are council responsibilities and refining council and council controlled organisation delivery models to enable the successful delivery of this community-led initiative.

Adequately resourced community facilities

Ensure our community and arts facilities are ‘resourced for success’ by providing sufficient operational funding grants and support for capital works where required to provide an equitable level of base funding to that provided elsewhere in the region.

Community Facilities asset renewals

The Kaipātiki Local Board are very appreciative of the significant renewals budget made available to the local board and the flexibility provided through the governance framework review which now enable the local board to move budget between renewal projects as need and priority demands.

 

The local board wish to take this opportunity however to highlight an issue where we have a growing shortfall in the renewals budget allocated in relation to the actual costs to complete projects to today’s standard. The local board acknowledges the issue is complex with many contributing factors, such as the timeframe in which the renewal budget was inputted into the system, the quality of our asset data, the competitive construction market, the required increase in project scope when invasive investigation begins, and the additional costs required for some of our older assets to be brought up to today’s standard when any renewal work occurs.

 

The local board recognises that it is able to prioritise budget to be spent on projects which are of most need, however the total ‘bucket’ of funding does not change. This means over time, if not addressed, the backlog of renewals projects will grow. We are already experiencing instances where our assets and facilities are being partly removed, fenced off or boarded up until such time as the renewal can occur.

 

The local board advocates for a review of the process for allocating renewal funding and whether the amount and phasing of budget is suitable to meet today’s renewals requirements.

Community Empowerment Unit Overheads

The Kaipatiki Local Board advocate for the transfer of funding for the operational overhead costs for the community empowerment unit out of the local board’s Locally Driven Initiative (LDI) budget to Asset Based Services (ABS) budget and the LDI budget reinstated. The reasons for this is that the overhead costs are attached to staff costs which aren’t able to be changed by the board, which is inconsistent with the principle that the funding is used at the discretion of the local board. The decision to increase staff remuneration does not sit with the local board’s however the impact is borne by the board as the LDI funding is not inflation adjusted to fund the increase in overhead costs. This means funding has to be taken from other local initiatives. Finally the board is concerned that the wrong message is being sent as the community empowerment unit is the only unit where overheads are funded by LDI. It implies that community empowerment is a discretionary activity.

Amendment of Allocation of Non-Regulatory Decision-Making Responsibilities – divestment and disposal of park land

 

The Kaipatiki Local Board advocates for the amendment of the Allocation of Non-Regulatory Decision-Making Responsibilities table in the area of ‘Parks, Community and Lifestyle.’  The Board is seeking specific amendment of the current allocation to the Governing Body regarding decision-making around the ‘acquisition and divestment of all park land, including the disposal of surplus parks.’

The Board would like to see this allocation amended to include a condition on this allocation, in that Governing Body decision-making should be conditional upon approval of disposal from the affected local board(s) prior to the Governing Body exercising its allocated authority.

The Board recognizes that consultation on amendment of the Allocation of Non-Regulatory Decision-Making Responsibilities table is required.  The Board therefore requests that proposed amendment as described above be included as part of public consultation in support of the next Annual Budget or Long-term Plan exercise.

 

 

c)         receive consultation feedback on regional proposals in the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and on the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 regarding property transfers from people or organisations based in the Kaipātiki Local Board area (as tabled).

Resolution number KT/2019/60

MOVED by Chairperson J Gillon, seconded by Deputy Chairperson D Grant:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)      provide conditional support on Auckland Transport’s proposal (NOP1819-013) for the installation of a southbound T3 transit lane on Birkenhead Avenue, Birkenhead, between the intersections with Recreation Drive and Onewa Road, subject to the following conditions:

i)     the transit lane and general lane continue through the intersection from Birkenhead Avenue to Onewa Road as separate lanes without requiring vehicles to merge, even if this requires the intersection to be altered.

ii)    the transit lane is a clearway outside of transit times to allow all vehicles to travel safely and unimpeded, and for consistency with the Kaipatiki Local Board’s position on establishing a clearway on Onewa Road (resolutions KT/2017/188, KT/2018/21 and KT/2019/32).

b)      provide support on Auckland Transports proposal (NOP1819-013) for the installation of a signalised mid-block pedestrian crossing on Birkenhead Avenue, Birkenhead, between the intersections with Recreation Drive and Waratah Street, and the removal of the existing pedestrian refuge.
