2.15 Puketāpapa Local Board

He kōrero mai i te Heamana

Message from the Chair

 

Last year we checked-in with our community to make sure we are on the right track. This has given us the confidence to have a ‘steady as she goes’ philosophy this year. Our key focus is to complete the projects we have started and to deliver on our 2017 Local Board Plan priorities.

I am delighted to see work progressing on our big infrastructure projects. Large parts of Harold Long Reserve/Fearon Park and Walmsley/Underwood Park have been upgraded and are now open for use. Work will continue on these in the coming year. The construction of the second section of the Waikowhai Coastal Boardwalk will also get underway.

Our environmental works continues, with a focus on carbon reduction and stream restoration. The restoration of Te Auaunga / Oakley Creek is one of our long-term projects. I acknowledge the support of our mana whenua partners and the Friends of Oakley Creek in this important work.

We will continue to provide our popular community events and have set up several ways for people to share their ideas and aspirations with us. The new Puketāpapa Youth Board is developing its work programme, building on its previous achievements.

Work is progressing well on the Puketāpapa Health Action Plan. This will bring together the aspirations of health and wellbeing that are reflected in the Puketāpapa Local Board Plan 2017 plus many of the great initiatives underway in our communities. Once the plan is developed, we will set up a coalition of agencies and community groups so that we can all work together to improve the well-being of all our people.

About Local Board Agreements

Auckland Council’s shared governance model means local boards are responsible for decision-making on local issues, activities and services and providing input into regional strategies, policies and plans. The local board agreement sets out the local board’s budget, funding for activities, levels of service, performance measures and targets for the financial year 2019/2020 which has been agreed with Auckland Council’s governing body.   

The Puketāpapa Local Board Plan 2017 is a three-year strategic document that guides local board activity, funding and investment decisions. A key role of the local board plan is to provide a basis for development of the annual local board agreement for each financial year, this is set out below. Each local board also develops annual work programmes alongside adoption of their local board agreement.

Local boards also provide input to the governing body on larger scale investments, regional programmes and policy issues such as rates proposals, which are outside local board decision-making responsibilities. A list of key advocacy areas is set out as appendix A.

Local Board Plan outcomes

The Puketāpapa Local Board Plan 2017 sets out the aspirations the local board has for the area. The outcomes in the Puketāpapa Local Board Plan are:

Outcome: Connected communities with a sense of belonging

People will feel connected to each other and this place. Our diversity can be celebrated as a unifying force, and barriers overcome so everyone can be included and contribute to community life.

 

Outcome: Urban development meets community needs

New housing will develop in harmony with established neighbourhoods. Residents will enjoy healthier homes, better community links and enlivened town centres.

Outcome: Improved wellbeing and safety

Puketāpapa communities will have a sense of wellbeing and feel happy, healthy, connected and safe.

 

Outcome: Vibrant and popular parks and facilities

Our range of open spaces will provide something for everyone in Puketāpapa. Not just lovely to look at, they will support physical and mental wellbeing, from hosting sports to being quiet spots for relaxing.

Outcome: Thriving local economy and good job opportunities

Puketāpapa will enjoy the benefits of a strong local economy that provides better employment opportunities for everyone.

 

Outcome: Treasured and enhanced natural environment

People will enjoy cleaner water in urban streams and the Manukau Harbour. On land, more resources will be reused or recycled, and Puketāpapa will reap environmental benefits from reducing fuel use and waste.

Outcome: Transport choices meet our varied travel needs

Our community will have easy and accessible transport choices for moving around Puketāpapa and connecting with the rest of Auckland. A range of options will support people’s decisions to change their ways of travelling.

 

 

The local board agreement outlined in this document reflects how we plan to support these outcomes through agreed activities in the 2019/2020 financial year. In addition, each local board carries out responsibilities delegated by the Governing Body in accordance with the delegated power, and with the general priorities and preferences in the local board plan.

Working with Māori

Auckland Council is committed to meeting its responsibilities under Te Tiriti o Waitangi / The Treaty of Waitangi by enabling and supporting mana whenua and mataawaka aspirations and providing opportunities for Māori to contribute to the future of Auckland. This is a priority for the Puketāpapa Local Board.

To formalise that commitment, the council has affirmed the Māori Responsiveness Framework, which sets out two key areas - understanding the rights and interests of Māori and acting on the needs and aspirations of Māori.

As part of the commitment, the Puketāpapa Local Board will continue to strengthen and formalise its relationship with mana whenua and mataawaka. Key initiatives this year include:

·      Work with the Ngāti Tamaoho Trust to grow the relationship that was formalised in the Relationship Agreement

·      Continue to work with mana whenua on initiatives to restore the upper catchment of Te Auaunga  /Oakley Creek

·      Work with mana whenua to source appropriate Māori names for different parks and reserves

·      Increase the visibility of Māori culture by including designs or stories from mana whenua as part of key projects.

·      Look for opportunities to work with mana whenua and mataawaka organisations on projects of mutual interest.
