Executive Summary

2.       This report seeks input from local boards on a range of annual plan related matters, including LDI, advocacy, regional financial policy issues and other rate proposals.  

3.       Local board views on these matters will be considered in discussions between the local boards and the Finance and Performance Committee on 6 and 9 May; and by the governing body prior to adopting the Annual Plan 2016/2017.

b)      agrees key advocacy issues.

c)      provides any views it may have on regional financial policy issues.

Locally Driven Initiatives (LDI)

4.       Local boards are requested to agree the level of funding for each group of activity. This funding is further allocated to specific projects and services detailed in the work programmes.

5.       As part of the funding policy, local boards can resolve to defer those projects that are funded by the LDI where there was an agreed scope and cost but have not been delivered.  The Local Board may wish to resolve 2015/2016 projects that meet the criteria for deferral to 2016/2017.

6.       Key information of the funding of each activity and the LDI funded projects that meet the criteria for deferral is provided in Attachment A.

Advocacy issues

7.       Local boards resolved on their key advocacy issues in November 2015, for discussions with the Finance and Performance Committee and consultation.  Since then, relevant council departments and Council Controlled Organisations have provided local boards with advice on the current position of each advocacy issue, and any next steps.  This information was provided to local boards in April 2016, as part of a broader information pack, to consider at their workshops, and is also attached to this report for information (see Attachment B).

8.       Local boards consulted on their local advocacy issues in February and March 2016.  The results from the consultation have been analysed and summarised, and provided to the local boards.  This has been attached to this report for information (see Attachment C).

9.       In light of this information, the Local Board may now wish to agree any advocacy priorities for discussion with the Finance and Performance Committee on 6 and 9 May.

Regional issues

10.     Local boards provided feedback on regional financial policy issues (in November 2015) which were going for consultation.  The results from the consultation have been analysed and summarised, and provided to local boards (see Attachment C).

11.     The local board may wish to provide further feedback on these issues for consideration by the Finance and Performance Committee. 

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

12.     Local boards are required to agree any new BID and local targeted rate proposals (noting that any new local targeted rates and/or BIDs must have been consulted on before they can be implemented).


Local board views and implications

13.     Local board decisions and feedback is being sought in this report. 

14.     Local boards play an important role in the development of the annual plan, and provide views and information at key stages as council continues through the annual plan process.

Māori Impact Statement

15.     Many local board decisions are of importance to and impact on Māori. Local board agreements and the annual plan are important tools that enable and can demonstrate council’s responsiveness to Māori. Local board plans, which were developed in 2014 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. 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.


16.     Feedback from the local boards will be summarised and provided in full to the Finance and Performance Committee and governing body for consideration and adopting the Annual Plan 2016/2017.

Attachment B – Advocacy

The following is the most recently approved list of advocacy for this local board, adopted in November 2015 as part of the annual plan process. Auckland Council departments and relevant CCO’s have provided a response to each initiative, setting out its current status. 


Department/CCO response

Ensure that investment in social infrastructure meets the demands of population growth and intensification.

The Manurewa Local Board will be involved in the future planning of their area, with a particular focus in higher growth areas.  In order to integrate infrastructure, development and future community needs, the council will be guided by strategic documents such as the Open Space Acquisition Policy, Community Facility Network Plans and the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan.  An asset solution is not always assumed, as there may be other interventions such as programming, partnership or funding to support community needs.

Support for the Wiri Business Improvement District (BID) expansion.

The BID Programme supports the development of existing BID areas to incorporate changes to their areas of influence and changes in the business environment. Wiri Business Association has long been advocating expanding their Business Improvement District (BID) Programme area to incorporate a wider geographic area and offer their services to the larger business community. The BID Programme encourages the local board to continue advocacy and support for the Wiri expansion with the governing body.  There is a clearly defined process for a BID expansion that a business association operating a BID programme has to work through.  Wiri is aware of the process and has been provided with all relevant council information. It is well understood by the Wiri Business Association that they are responsible for the management of the expansion process. Council staff have worked with the Executive Committee and manager since 2014 to help them understand how to approach the expansion. There will also be a workshop in April 2016 for BIDs undertaking expansion processes over the 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 years.

Support for partnerships and to maximise investment made by businesses and the local board around the rail stations at Manurewa, Homai and Te Mahia.

ATEED recognises that having a coordinated approach to local place making around transport hubs is important to the local economy. Cohesive and strategic investment from both the private and public sector will help local business thrive.  This is reflected in the Manurewa Local Economic Development Plan. 

The retention of Cheesman’s Bush and working to remove uncertainty for the owners of affected properties.

Auckland Transport are looking to purchase the land at Cheesman’s Bush for a highway project. The land is currently owned privately.

Investment to support the implementation of the Nathan Homestead business plan, including earthquake proofing and the building’s restoration as a heritage asset.

High level costs have been prepared as part of the new David Nathan Park and Homestead Strategic Business Plan project, including options depending on the level of future investment. The business plan is due for Local Board approval in March 2016.

Investment to revitalise the Manurewa Town Centre including the development of a performing arts centre

The Development Programme Office notes the request and will consider it as part of works in the Manurewa Town Centre in collaboration with Community Facilities. This will be reported to the board in due course.


Reverse the reduction of service levels including charges for swimming pools

No new changes to levels of service are proposed compared to what was set out for 2016/2017 in the council’s recently adopted 10-year budget. After considering extensive feedback from Aucklanders, decisions and trade-offs were made in the 10-year budget to achieve the right balance between affordability and making progress for Auckland, including some changes to delivery of day-to-day services:

•     standardising library hours across the region

•     introducing a standardised annual inorganic collection service (on-property, booked in advance) to be paid for via the solid waste targeted rate

•     reduced spending on planning and policy work, with more focus on core activities such as bylaws, the unitary plan and statutory monitoring of the environment

•     changes to the way community development services are delivered, with a greater focus on empowering communities to deliver for themselves

•     reductions in spending on parks maintenance and increased use of spraying instead of mechanical edging in parks

•     standardisation of fees and charges and greater cost recovery in some areas

•     a small reduction in spending on environmental advisory and education services

•     providing funding for emergency housing, homelessness and rough-sleeping responses across Auckland.

Similarly, there is no proposal in 2016/17 to change the Swimming Pools Pricing Policy, which provides universal free access for children 16 years and under at council-owned pools, and in some areas introduced charges for adults 17 years and over. This policy was consulted on and adopted as part of the previous LTP 2012-2022. An impact assessment of the policy is being circulated to local boards for their information and to inform the 2017/18 Annual Plan process.


Local boards may wish to request the governing body set a targeted rate, or consider using their LDI funding, to change levels of service or reduce local fees, noting that targeted rates and significant or material changes to the LTP require consultation.

Recognition of the special importance of the Manukau Harbour and of improving water quality so that people can swim and harvest kaimoana again at places like Weymouth Beach

Staff are working with the Manukau Harbour Forum and have an agreed work programme to recognise the importance of the Harbour.  Specific investigations into the water quality issues at Weymouth beach have been undertaken over 2014 and 2015. Smoke sourcing revealed some issues with wastewater connections which are being worked through with property owners. Further work on contamination is ongoing with direction from the local board.

Improve railway crossings in Takanini through grade separation as part of the Southern Corridor Improvements project.

NZTA recently started the Southern Corridor improvement project that will focus on SH 1 including the Takanini Interchange but this will not remove the issue at other level crossings in the area.
At this time the RLTP does not have funding for widespread grade separation anywhere in Auckland but this may change  late in 2016 when the Auckland Transport Alignment Programme Project is complete.
