d)      provides the following feedback on the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 and associated policies:

Regional Fuel Tax

i.        Supports a regional fuel tax but seeks commitment from Auckland Transport to increase subsides on public transport to allow fares to be affordable and accessible especially for members in our community that will be severely impacted by the increase in the cost of fuel;


ii.      Requests Auckland Transport to investigate the possibility of providing some direct support to those who need it most including possibly linking subsidies to Community Services Card;


Environment Targeted Rate

iii.     notes that a key priority for our community is that there is transparency and accountability in managing the work that will be delivered from this funding including within our community;


Council Controlled Organisations (CCO) Accountability Policy

iv.     Supports the overall intent and scope of the CCOs Accountability Policy subject to the following amendments and considerations;


v.      Endorses the requirement that all parts of council act in the interest of Auckland and supports the expectation that the CCOs and Council including local boards, should have trust and confidence in each other and avoid actions that are perceived to undermine either party in public.


vi.     Supports a clear statement of the obligation on CCOs to consult with local boards in the Accountability Policy and ensure that in any decision making or inputs by local boards is clearly defined and sufficient time is given for genuine engagement with local boards.


vii.    Supports CCOs developing examples and clear methodologies that exhibit and deliver “best practice” in working with local boards and provides clear accountability in practice.


viii.   Seeks clear statements in section 1.1.3 to require that CCOs must give effect and be cognisant of Local Board Plans and where relevant Area Plans to ensure that key local board priorities ad projects are supported and integrated.


ix.     Acknowledge and support the expectation in section 1.1.4 to Improve Outcomes for Maori ensuring that both Mana Whenua and Mataawaka are part of the overall approach and essential to our relationship with Maori across the whole Council.


x.      Endorses section 1.1.7 Understanding and Giving Effect to Auckland’s Shared Governance and the recognition and acknowledgement of local boards as an integral part of the shared governance of Auckland Council.


e)      provides the following feedback on the draft Auckland Plan 2050.

i.       Confirms its support for the Auckland Plan outcomes


ii.     notes that Outcome 2 Maori Identity and Wellbeing needs to give strong signal as to how we will financially support initiatives that benefit outcomes for Maori


iii.      That sport and recreation could be included more prominently (potentially in participation outcome)


iv.      That there could be more of a focus on heritage


v.        That there focus more on local economic development as  this is a strong outcome in many local board plans


vi.      Environmental outcomes, including clean waterways should be more prominent in the Auckland Plan to reflect the feedback and proposed investment.


f)          recommends that Council work with waste management companies to investigate    innovative ways to repurpose waste, reduce carbon emissions and support other    waste research and development initiatives.


g)      advocates for the continuation of weekly waste collections as fortnightly waste collection service is unlikely to sufficiently meet the needs of larger households residing in our community.

If the service does not meet the need, it will most likely lead to an increase in rubbish dumping around the neighbourhood and an increase in pests which will adversely affect health and wellbeing of communities and the ‘look and feel’ of the local area.


h)      is concerned that there is a community perception that illegal dumping has increased since change in inorganic waste collection service has changed. The local board requests an investigation of local resource recovery facilities and other free or affordable services that will assist members of our communities to dispose of inorganic waste responsibly.


i)       notes the recommendation for the deferral of unspent 2017/2018 Locally Driven Initiative (LDI) operating expenditure is being addressed in the quarterly report.
