Context

3.       AT is responsible for all of Auckland’s transport services, excluding state highways. We report on a monthly basis to local boards, as set out in our Local Board Engagement Plan. This monthly reporting commitment acknowledges the important engagement role local boards play within the governance of Auckland on behalf of their local communities. 

4.       This report updates the Waitematā Local Board on AT projects and operations in the Waitematā Local Board area, it updates the local board on their advocacy and consultations and includes information on the status of the Local Board Transport Capital Fund and Community Safety Fund.

5.       The Local Board Transport Capital Fund is a capital budget provided to all local boards by Auckland Council and delivered by Auckland Transport. Local boards can use this fund to deliver transport infrastructure projects that they believe are important but are not part of Auckland Transport’s work programme.

6.       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 local road safety issues that are not regional priorities and are therefore not being addressed by the AT work programme.

Analysis and advice

Auckland Transport projects and operations in the local board area

7.       The table below has a general summary of projects and activities of interest to the local board with their current status. Please note that all timings are indicative and are subject to change:

Item

Update

Great North Road (Previously route 4 of Waitematā Safe Routes) - Deliver a high-quality link between Crummer Road and Karangahape Road on Great North Road. That provides a safer route for existing cyclists, encourages more people on bikes while making bus journeys in the peak faster and more reliable.

No update this month.

Previous update:

The business case and design process will begin soon. These will include the learnings from the previous design process. This process is expected to be completed mid-2020 and will then go through the consultation process.

Westhaven to CBD Cycleway - The purpose of the project is to deliver a commuter cycling facility linking Westhaven Drive with Quay Street.

The design has been on hold while third party funding has been investigated to fund the streetscape elements. Current project scope will be delivering the cycleway base design with some streetscape enhancements.

Procurement of a designer to occur in June 2019.

Parnell cycleway – proposed cycleway through Parnell

No update this month.

Previous update:

The AT Executive Leadership Team (ELT) are finalising the cycleway programme priority and available budget. This will help determine the future of Parnell cycleway and subsequent funding.

The project team has worked through a multi criteria assessment of concept design options and determined AT’s preferred design option. The design can be presented to the community reference group pending the ELT decision.

Pt Chevalier to Westmere cycleway - A dedicated cycle route along Pt Chevalier Road and Meola Road ending near the Westmere Shops 

No update this month.

Previous update:

Design and planning is progressing and a public consultation will be carried out later in 2019. Once a design is finalised, the project team will present to the local board.

Wellesley Street Bus Improvement Project (formerly Midtown bus route) – Improving how city centre buses operate

The emerging preferred design for the Wellesley Street bus improvements project is being finalised and is expected to be brought to the Waitematā Local Board ahead of public consultation from July/August 2019.

Waitematā Safe Routes project, the two routes open for feedback are:

Route 1: Surrey Crescent to Garnet Road and

Route 2: Richmond Road.

No update this month.

Previous update:

A high-level summary of public feedback has been presented to the local board at workshop on the 2 April 2019.  Feedback has been received from the local board.

The project team will finish compiling all the feedback into a public feedback and decisions report.

Herne Bay cycling and walking improvements – proposed changes to encourage slower driving speeds and improve routes for people walking and cycling.

No update this month.

Previous update:

The project team has been updating the design to meet the new standards in the Traffic Design Manual. The stormwater design and the lighting design are progressing.

Victoria Street East-West cycleway - dedicated cycle route along Victoria Street West, from the Beaumont Street intersection to the Hobson Street intersection.

The project team is working to progress the detailed design to incorporate more on road safety and to minimise any rework due to other proposed projects in the area (such as Victoria Street Linear Park) through a coordinated design approach.

For this the Victoria Street cycleway project’s scope has been reduced to finish at Nelson Street as there is an existing cycleway connection on Nelson Street and Auckland Council is considering future work on Hobson Street.

The detailed design is progressing. AT will present an update on the design to the local board upon receiving the road safety audit results.

Federal Street Walking and Cycling Improvements

(proposed for Federal Street linking Fanshawe Street to Victoria Street until the full Federal Street Upgrade occurs.)

No update this month.

Previous update:

We are currently analysing feedback received from consultation and will soon produce a report highlighting key themes and changes to be made to improve the safety of the design as a result.

Cook Street and Union Street – road safety improvements

No update this month.

Previous update:

The Project Team is in the process of applying for funding for this project. They anticipate this process will be completed in June 2019.

Tamaki Drive cycle route (Quay Street to Ngapipi Bridge)

The Tāmaki Drive Cycleway final detailed design was issued and resource consent has been approved by Council.  However, a redesign is needed for the Tamaki Drive corridor through reallocating traffic lane widths and the southern side footpath to provide a more balanced and safer cross section, while allowing heavy commercial vehicles to continue to use Tamaki Drive.

The current design lane arrangement on Tamaki Drive provides a 3.2m kerbside lane, 3.3m centre lane and 1.5m southern side footpath, the revised design provides a 2.95m kerbside lane, 3.0m centre lane and a minimum of 1.8m southern side footpath

The reason for this design change has been a result of a recent safety review, departure requests, and direction from the Design Strategy and Standards team.

The Solent Street intersection has been separated out to have greater focus as a safety project.

AT will soon begin preconstruction engagement with key stakeholders in the work area.

Grafton Road – clearway

No update this month.

Previous update:

In scheme design phase.

Great North Road Shared path – shared path, new paired crossings at slip lanes and Western Springs Road, shared path crossing with cycle lights, raised tables and kerb realignments.

Construction to begin June 2019 pending traffic management plan approvals.

Design for section across SH16 ramps/GNR intersection not approved by NZTA/AMA, so this section of project is currently on hold.

Wellesley Street & Sale Street – new intersection signals

No update this month, previous update:

Public consultation phase. Detail design will start following public consultation.

Grafton Road – midblock pedestrian signal outside of University of Auckland.

No update this month.

Previous update:

In scheme design phase.  The ‘scheme’ develops the concept, addressing more functional and practical considerations.  The next step is consultation and then detailed design.

St Georges Bay Road - pedestrian crossing facility.

St Georges Bay Road pedestrian crossing facility is currently going through the legal resolution process. Once legally resolved, it will be passed onto the contractor for construction.

During our contractor works notification an adjacent building owner has strongly objected to aspects of the proposal and impacts on their historic building. These concerns were not raised during public consultation. The works have been placed on hold while we engage with the building owner to address concerns raised.

Princes Street and Eden Crescent Intersection - upgrade including raised zebra crossings

No update this month.

Previous update:

In detail design phase. Construction moved to 2019/2020

Karangahape Road Enhancements Project – streetscape upgrade

The contract has now been signed with John Fillmore Contracting Ltd to deliver the physical works.

The earliest they could be on site is the 1 July 2019, subject to them receiving the necessary approvals to work in the road. Following confirmation of the contract being awarded it will now be possible to confirm the construction programme and getting information out to the effected retailers, residents and the wider community.

Parnell Station – Installing ticket gates

Ticket gate installation currently on schedule for commissioning in the last week of June 2019.

Downtown Infrastructure Improvement Programme –

·      Quay Street Strengthening 

·      Quay Street Enhancement

·      Britomart East

·      Lower Albert Street

·      Downtown Ferry

·      Waterfront Park

·      Mooring dolphin

 

This month work starts on the large transformational Downtown Programme projects including strengthening Quay Street’s seawall, enhancing the streetscape, and redeveloping the ferry basin. Preparatory works including proof drilling and clearing of utility services along the northern side of Quay Street between Queens Wharf and Marsden Wharf are well underway and targeting completion late June. We expect piling rigs to begin drilling on the Queens to Marsden section of the Seawall in mid-July.

Stage two of the preparatory investigation works in front of Burger Boy on the western side of the Princes Wharf / Quay Street intersection continues and is expected to finish late-June.

Repair of the Pier 2 piles are also set to begin in this month. Scaffolding will be installed under the wharf and through early June, and hydro demolition works begin around mid-June. These works will continue through to August. All ferry services will operate as normal throughout works. Potholing works along the Quay St footpath from Lower Albert Street to Queens Wharf begins this week as well.

Storm-water works between Lower Hobson and lower Albert Street are ongoing and expected to be completed in mid-June 2019.

The traffic lane configuration (number of lanes and layout) will remain the same this month, but the lanes may be shifted to the northern side of Quay Street between Queen Street and Lower Hobson Street in late June 2019. We expect this to have minimal impact on traffic flows and we will continue to monitor and manage traffic on an on-going basis.

Public engagement on the Downtown Programme resumes this week with information pop ups planned throughout June 2019. These will take a similar format to the successful pop ups / information sessions held in late 2018 and early 2019.

Consent updates:

·      Resource consents for strengthening the Princes Wharf Ferry Basin and Queens Wharf to Marsden Wharf sections of the seawall have been granted.

·      The application for the Ferry Building Seawall strengthening was lodged on May 31st with a decision expected mid-June 2019.

·      The Mooring Dolphin decision to proceed has now been appealed through the Environment Court and we are waiting for a hearing date to be set.

·      The Ferry Basin redevelopment consent has been approved with the final date for appeal Friday 7 June.

·      Quay Street Enhancement we are expecting a decision this week.

Franklin Road upgrade - upgrades to improve the road quality and future-proof existing services.

Overall project completion expected by the end of June 2019.

All the key stakeholders have been advised well in advance. 

Wynyard Quarter street and park upgrades – central construction package

No update this month.

Previous update:

Work continues to progress well. Planning is starting for work staging on Gaunt Street, to ensure we minimise disruption for the marine businesses. We are starting to communicate with the business about staging the work, timing work to avoid their peak trading months, and maintaining access into their customer car parks. Gaunt Street will likely be one way with a detour in place for traffic travelling in the opposing direction. The detour will also have accompanying signage to direct marine business customers.

Grey Lynn & Arch Hill parking scheme - proposed permit scheme for residents and businesses

No update this month.

Previous update:

The Residential Parking zones were implemented in December 2018. Feedback so far has been positive.

In line with a resolution passed by the local board, we will re-assess the parking situation in the remaining streets after parking patterns have normalised.

Renewal of Facilities Management Agreement for Point Erin Pools and Parnell Baths

File No.: CP2019/09942

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek approval to renew the Facility Management Agreement with Community Leisure Management for Point Erin Pools and Parnell Baths.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The initial five-year term of the current Facilities Management Agreement (the agreement) with Community Leisure Management (CLM) for Point Erin Pools and Parnell Baths, is due to expire on the 30 June 2019.

3.       The Waitematā Local Board (the local board) has the discretion to renew the agreement for a further three-year term.

4.       A workshop was held with the the local board on 30 April 2019 to discuss the CLM’s performance over the initial term of the agreement and to consider if the local board was to support a renewal, what change, if any, there might be to the agreement.

5.       The local board indicated a willingness to renew the agreement for the additional three years with a focus on key priorities that achieve the current local board outcomes and improve the wellbeing of the Waitematā community.

6.       The local board wanted assurance that CLM operations respond to the Waitematā Local Board Low Carbon Community Action Plan and play their part to help become a low carbon and sustainable community.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Waitematā Local Board:

a)      approve the three-year right of renewal for the Facility Management Agreement with Community Leisure Management (CLM) for Point Erin Pools and Parnell Baths. 

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       In 2014, Auckland Council entered into Facility Management Agreements for the operations of twelve council-owned pools and leisure centres, including Point Erin Pools and Parnell Baths.

8.       The management agreement for the two outdoor pools in the Waitematā Local Board area was awarded to CLM, who were the existing operators at that time and have now been operating both sites on behalf of Auckland Council for over ten years.

9.       The current agreement between CLM and Auckland Council has an initial term of five years which expires on the 30 June 2019 and has the option of a three year right of renewal at local board’s sole discretion.   

10.     A workshop was held with the local board on 30 April 2019 to review CLM’s performance over the initial term and to consider exercising the right of renewal and if so what changes the local board would like to see in the agreement.

11.     The local board were satisfied with the performance of CLM over the initial term and staff outlined that they had met all their contractual obligations. 

12.     The local board and staff discussed a number of service outcomes that they would like to see should the agreement be renewed which included:

·    Staff to ensure that the agreement is in alignment with more recent local board outcomes

·    Staff to work with CLM to implement initiatives and processes to help Waitematā become a low carbon and sustainable community, by achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and zero waste by 2040

·    Staff to continue to work towards a regional membership structure that includes contracted sites and allows access to all facilities in the region

·    Staff continue to develop and implement a consistent set of operational guidelines and service policies across all of council’s aquatic facilities to ensure a consistent customer experience

·    CLM to continue to deliver a range of targeted programmes and events to the Waitematā community, including Drowning Prevention Auckland’s regional water safety and education programmes

·    A strong focus remained on improving customer experience.

13.     The local board also requested information on the cost implications of asking CLM to introduce a Living Wage.  This is currently not an organisational requirement for contractors to implement the Living Wage but the local board support a move to a Living Wage and staff have requested that CLM provide a cost estimate to do so which the local board can consider. 

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

14.     There are two options available to the local board in relation to the current agreement.

15.     Option one – exercise the right of renewal for a further three-year term

·    The local board at their sole discretion have the right to grant a renewal of the existing Agreement to CLM for a further three-year term until 30 June 2022.

·      CLM have met all their contractual obligations and operate the facilities to a high standard. They continue to provide a fun and safe environment to all users and community groups. Both pools have consistently achieved New Zealand ‘PoolSafe’ accreditations.

16.     Option two – go back to market to procurement a new operator

·        With the Agreement due to expire on the 30 June 2019 the local board have an option to go back to market to procure a new operator.  This would require a procurement process that would take at least three months to complete and would be for a term of three years.

·      There is some risk around this option, given the seasonal nature of the operations of the outdoor pools and the term of the contract that might not be attractive to the other providers in the market.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

17.     Given CLM are meeting their KPI’s and agreed outcomes, staff believe that renewing the existing agreement for an additional three years would see them maintain the expected levels of service and continue to work to improve operational efficiencies and are therefore recommending option one, to renew the agreement for a further three-year term.

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

Local impacts and local board views

18.     In 2015 Waitematā Local Board adopted a Low Carbon Community Action Plan, championing projects to reduce energy use and water consumption.

19.     CLM have committed to support Waitematā Local Board’s outcome of becoming a low carbon and sustainable community, by working towards net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and zero waste by 2040.

20.     CLM have agreed to minimise their carbon footprint by implementing initiatives to divert food waste from landfill, source food locally and purchase recyclable products/packaging.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

21.     As part of the current agreement, Māori organisations are actively supported to identify opportunities for increasing active participation by Māori in sport and recreation in order to improve health and wellbeing.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

22.     This is a regional asset-based service, so there are no financial impacts for the local board, unless increased level services are specifically requested by the local board.

23.     The local board has indicated that it would like CLM to introduce the Living Wage which would be considered an increased level of service and therefore must be funded by the local board through LDI Opex. CLM will be providing costings for introducing the Living Wage during the term of the agreement extension and staff will present this to the local board for consideration.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

24.     This is deemed to be low risk due to the history and the performance of CLM over an extended period of time at these two facilities.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

25.     If the recommendation is approved staff will implement the renewal and include the changes agreed by the local board and CLM.

26.     Staff will provide financial implications for implementing the Living Wage at Point Erin Pools and Parnell Baths at a future local board workshop.

27.     Staff will continue to work with CLM to develop, implement and report on key plans and initiatives, including risk management, quality assurance, sustainability, financial performance/budget, programming and marketing.

Auckland Domain - Utilisation of the Waitematā Local Board's Parking Fund

File No.: CP2019/10533

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       The Waitematā Local Board (local board) is being requested by the Auckland Domain Committee (committee) to provide funding from the local board’s Parking Fund to deliver improvements in the Auckland Domain related to:

·        managing commuter parking to ensure parking is available to Domain users; and

·   developing a new carpark to support the natural play area and provide safer pedestrian and cycling use of Kiosk Road.

2.       The purpose of this report is to seek approval from the local board to utilise the funds.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

3.       The committee has limited funds to implement the Auckland Domain Master Plan or particular improvements that relate to accessibility. As a result members of the local board that sit on the committee have proposed the local board’s Parking Fund may be utilised to provide better parking outcomes for the Domain.

4.       The two projects in the Domain subject to this request for funding of $489,225 would achieve a higher turnover in parking utilisation by restricting access to the Domain by long stay commuter parkers in the mornings and would improve safety of Kiosk Road and the area in the vicinity of the new natural play area.

5.       There are sufficient funds sitting in the Parnell portion of the local board’s legacy Parking Fund (comprising $607,796) that could be utilised to support these two projects.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Waitematā Local Board:

a)      support utilising the Parnell portion of the Waitematā Local Board’s Parking Fund, in the order of $489,225 to deliver improvements in the Auckland Domain related to:

i)        installing temporary gates at the entrance and exit to the Titoki Street carpark and at the Carlton Gore entrance to manage commuter or long stay parking to ensure parking is available to Domain users; and

ii)       developing a new carpark to support the natural play area and provide safer pedestrian and cycling use of Kiosk Road.

b)      recommend to the Governing Body to release the funds.

 

 


 

Horopaki

Context

6.       The committee adopted the Auckland Domain Master Plan (masterplan) in 2016 and sought to have the implementation of this plan funded through the Long-term Plan 2018-28.  Funding for this was initially supported but was removed during the final stages of prioritisation. 

7.       An Auckland Domain Accessibility Improvement Programme (AIP) was then developed to package up the key outcomes of the masterplan, with a focus on reducing vehicle dominance and improving pedestrian and cycling opportunities in the Domain.  Alternate means of funding the implementation of this has been sought, including the introduction of paid parking which was not supported by the committee.

8.       As a result members of the Waitematā Local Board that sit on the committee have proposed the local board’s Parking Fund may be utilised to deliver components of the AIP that provide better parking outcomes for the Domain.

9.    At the Auckland Domain Committee 29 November 2018 meeting, the committee resolved to:

d)    recommend that funds governed by the Waitematā Local Board be utilised to fund the trial installation of new gates at the entrance and exit to the Titoki Street carpark and at the Carlton Gore entrance from their Parking Fund.

e)    recommend that funds governed by the Waitematā Local Board be utilised to fund the expanded Kiosk Road carpark from their Parking Fund.

10.     Commuter or long stay parking is a significant contributor to the vehicle dominance in the Domain.  This has been verified by a number of parking surveys undertaken over the past decade.  All streets surrounding the Domain now have pay and display parking which has heightened the long stay parking demand in the Domain. 

11.     Auckland Transport’s (AT) most recent survey in November 2017 found parking capacity during the week to be on average at 90 per cent. This reduces parking available to legitimate Domain users and contributes to the traffic movements as vehicles circulate the Domain roads trying to find a park.  Weekends experience lower occupancy with the survey showing this to be at 68 per cent on Saturdays.

12.     Following this survey AT recommended introducing parking charges in the Domain to manage parking, but this was not supported by the committee. The committee wanted to look at alternate management options for addressing commuter parking and established a working group with representatives from key stakeholder and community groups.

13.     The working group proposed trialling the installation of temporary gates or bollards to address the high commuter parking use in the Titoki Street carpark and the west end of Football Road and Grandstand Road South.  These gates would not open until around 9.45am so restrict early morning access by commuters.  The gates would then be closed at dusk.  These restrictions would only apply Monday to Friday.

14.     A quote for the gates has suggested they would cost in the order of $10,000 each to hire for a 13-month trial period.  Three gates would be required: two at the Titoki St carpark and one at the Carlton Road entrance to the Domain.  The existing bollards at the north-eastern end of Football Road and in Little George St would be used instead of gates to manage these entrances into Football Road.  Attachment A to this report provides a visual of what these gates may look like.

15.     It is proposed a further survey will be undertaken after the gates are installed to determine their effectiveness.  If these measures prove to manage the commuter parking, and are seen to open up parking availability for people visiting the Domain, more permanent gates would be installed.

Kiosk Road carpark

16.     A new natural playground is to be developed in the Domain in the area between the duck pond, Domain Drive and Kiosk Road.  When the committee granted approval of the concept for this project at their 30 May 2018 meeting this approval was subject to addressing access improvements.  At the moment Kiosk Road is one way and used for parking along a large stretch of the road with two small carparks at the intersection of Kiosk Road and Domain Drive.  In addition, buses visiting the Wintergardens exit through Kiosk Road.   

17.     To improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists utilising Kiosk Road and for those visiting the playground it is proposed that the road is closed to vehicle movements with the exception of buses.  A new carpark would be developed at the western end of Kiosk Road to service the natural play area with paths providing safer connections through this area.  Refer to Attachment B to this report.

18.     The new carpark will have a capacity of 29 spaces and will replace the 29 spaces along Kiosk Road and 12 spaces in the two existing small carparks.  It is proposed that gates will be required in this carpark given the current high incidence of long stay parking use in this area and to manage demand for visitors to the playground. 

19.     A rough estimate of costs for the new carpark is $459,225.

Council group impacts and views

25.     The proposed Kiosk Road carpark plan has been developed by the Investigation and Design team in Community Facilities (CF) taking into account the development of the new Domain natural play area and wider accessibility improvement programme. 

26.     There has been confirmation from the Operational Management and Maintenance team in CF about covering the costs to operate the gates over the trial period.

27.     Given AT’s role at managing the roads in the Domain they have been advised of the new carpark and the impact this will have on the current vehicle thoroughfare through the road.  The proposal to introduce the temporary gates has also been shared with AT.  It is acknowledged that staff will need to undertake further work with AT on the appropriate mechanisms to implement these road access changes.

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

Local impacts and local board views

28.     The proposal to trial the use of gates in the Domain to manage parking was developed in consultation with a working group set up by the committee.  This was made up of local community groups and key stakeholders, including representatives of the:

·        Auckland War Memorial Museum

·        Parnell Business Association

·        Parnell Community Centre

·        Grafton Residents Association

·        City Centre Residents Association

·        Auckland District Health Board

29.     It is anticipated both these projects will have positive impacts on the Auckland Domain and those visiting the park.  In particular, it is envisaged the introduction of the gates will reduce vehicle dominance created by commuter parkers and enable those visiting the Domain to find a park.  While the new Kiosk Road carpark is intended to improve safety for those who will visit the new playground and those walking and cycling in the area.

30.     However, it is also likely these projects will impact those that currently are long stay parkers in the Domain. The Auckland Hospital representative on the working group was not supportive of changes in Kiosk Road given many people that work or visit the hospital utilise the free parking in the Domain.

31.     The potential for the local board to fund these two specific projects was workshopped with the local board on 7 May 2019.  At this time, the discussion reiterated that the gates would be a trial and therefore not require a full road closure, and that methods could be employed that stopped visitors driving around the gates to get access to the parking areas.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

32.     The masterplan was developed with input from mana whenua. However, mana whenua have not yet been engaged on the more refined AIP.

33.     It is anticipated that as part of the more detailed design for the new Kiosk Road carpark that this engagement will be undertaken.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

34.     The local board has a legacy Parking Fund that can be utilised for parking improvements.  The Corporate and Local Board Performance team have advised that the Parnell portion of this fund, which has a balance of $607,796, can be used in the Domain.

35.     In addition it could potentially utilise some of the city centre fund, which has a balance of $254,550.

36.     There is a legal requirement that the fund be used in "reasonable accordance" with the purposes for which the funds were obtained. This means that the fund must be used:

a.   to provide new/additional carparks or carparks of additional capacity; and

b.   for projects within the general area where the funding was collected

37.     Given these requirements, projects utilising this fund will need to provide:

a.   additional carparking spaces; and / or

b.   increase the utilisation of the existing parking spaces. This could be achieved by works which increase access and usability of the existing parking spaces, and by increasing carpark turnover.

38.     The parking fund has also been used in other local board areas where there were enhancements made from a safety perspective for both motorists and pedestrians.

39.     The two projects in the Domain require funding of $489,225 which would be available within the Parnell portion of the Parking Fund. A further report from the local board to the Finance and Performance Committee will be required to release these funds.

Risks and mitigations

40.     The main risks around these two projects are:

·   That the introduction of the temporary gates may not be supported by all those in the community, particularly those that take advantage of the long stay parking in the Domain. 

·   There is no confirmed budget to undertake monitoring of the gates to determine their effectiveness or to replace the temporary gates with a more permanent solution.

41.     These risks will be partially mitigated by undertaking a communication programme ahead of introducing the changes.  This would include methods of advising all those that currently park in the Domain about the intended changes that are about ensuring there is parking available for those visiting the Domain.

42.     It is proposed that the Auckland Domain Committee seek further limited funding through the Annual Plan process in FY20/21 to deliver the permanent gate solution.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

43.     The proposal for the local board to fund these two projects will be discussed with the committee at their meeting on 5 June 2019.

44.     Subject to the board’s approval, the delivery of the gates would be undertaken following stakeholder engagement, including those currently parking in the Domain.

45.     The carpark works would proceed to detailed design and consent in the new financial year (1 July 2019) and would likely be delivered in FY2020/2021.

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To approve the 2019/2022 Community Facilities Work Programme for the Waitematā Local Board.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Community Facilities department is responsible for the building, maintaining and renewing of all open spaces and community buildings. This includes the community leasing and licensing of council-owned premises.

3.       The Waitematā Local Board 2019/2020 Community Facilities Work Programme was developed through a series of iterative workshops between key staff and local boards since October 2018. The projects identified in the work programme have been prioritised for investment based on a combination of local board feedback, staff assessments of assets and key stakeholder input.

4.       The work programme provided in Attachments A and B to this report reflect the projects that were presented in the last local board workshop with modifications based on feedback from the local board, and with the inclusion of projects proposed to be funded from regional programmes.

5.       This report recommends that the local board approves the 2019-2022 Community Facilities Work Programme and associated budget in full for projects commencing in the first year of the programme and in principle for subsequent two years.

6.       The work programme includes projects proposed to be funded from regional programmes, including local and sports field development (growth), coastal and slips prevention programmes. Inclusion of these projects in the local board work programme is subject to approval by the Environment and Community Committee in July 2019.

7.       It is recommended that the local board approve the inclusion of these projects in the work programme and provide feedback for consideration by the Environment and Community Committee.

8.       Several projects have been identified in the work programme as “risk adjusted programme (RAP)” projects. These are projects that have budget allocated in the 2020/2021 financial year.

9.       Approval is sought for staff to commence work on these projects in the 2019/2020 year so that they can be delivered early if other approved projects are delayed for any reason.

10.     To expedite delivery of the work programme, and to manage changes that may be required in a timely way, staff recommend that the local board delegate decision making for amendments to the approved programme to the chair.

Horopaki

Context

11.     Community facilities and open spaces provide important community services to the people of Auckland. They contribute to building strong, healthy and vibrant communities by providing spaces where Aucklanders can participate in a wide range of social, cultural, art and recreational activities. These activities improve lifestyles and bring a sense of belonging and pride amongst residents.

12.     Work programmes are presented to local boards for approval each year. The 2019 – 2022 Community Facilities Work Programme, detailed in the attachments, contains information on all proposed projects to be delivered by Community Facilities, including capital works projects, leasing and operational maintenance.

13.     Staff have engaged with the board in the development of the work programme through several workshops, including:

·    30 October 2018 where the local board discussed their priorities for the future work programme

·    12 March 2019 where the local board reviewed the first draft work programme and provided feedback

·    14 May 2019 where staff provided any further information requested in workshop 2 and reviewed the revised draft work programme.

14.     This year’s work programme is a three-year programme to clearly demonstrate the phasing of project delivery and to enable the organisation to prepare for delivery.  The work programme is subject to a rolling review and each year the local board will be asked to approve a new three-year work programme.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

Capital works programme

15.     Investment in the capital works programme will ensure that council facilities and open spaces in the Waitematā Local Board area remain valuable and well-maintained community assets.

16.     The overall capital works programme includes projects for which the local board has discretion to allocate budget, referred to as the local programme, and projects from regional programmes.

17.     Specific projects within the work programme may have budget allocated from two or more budget sources, including budgets from both local and regional programmes.

18.     Projects funded from the Coastal Renewals, Slips Prevention and Local Parks and Sports Field Development budgets are listed below:

• 24 Logan Terrace, Parnell - remediate major slip

• Grey Lynn Park – develop new changing rooms

• Grey Lynn Park – install retaining wall

• Newmarket Park – stabilise slope with planting

19.     The work programme includes both new projects and existing projects that have been continued from the previous financial year where those projects require multiple years for delivery (multi-year projects).

20.     Any projects that have budget approved in the current 2018/2019 financial year, but are unable to be delivered this year, will be deferred. Deferred budgets will be added to the work programme at a later date.

Local Programme

21.     The local programme includes those projects that the local board is funding from its discretionary capex budgets, including:

·    Renewals
The local board can allocate its renewals budget towards the renewal of any council owned asset.

·    Locally Driven Initiative (LDI)
The local board has the discretion to allocate its LDI budget to any projects that deliver a council asset or as a capital grant to a third party to deliver an asset made available for public use.

22.     In preparing recommendations for the local programme several matters have been considered, including:

·    strategic documents (e.g. local board plan)

·    service assessment input from Community Services

·    asset condition assessments

·    input from operational maintenance teams and staff working within facilities

·    budget availability.

23.     The Community Facilities work programme supports the achievement of the following 2017 Waitematā Local Board Plan priorities:

·    Inclusive communities that are vibrant, healthy and connected

·    Attractive and versatile public places that meet our communities’ needs

·    The natural environment is valued, protected and enhanced

·    A high-quality build environment that embraces our heritage

·    An accessible, connected and safe transport network with well-designed streets.

24.     Other strategic documents of relevance have included:

·    Becoming a Low Carbon Community Action Plan

·    Grey Lynn Park Development Plan

·    Myers Park Development Plan

·    Point Resolution Taurarua Plan

·    Tree Loss in the Waitematā Local Board over 10 years (2006 – 2016)

·    Waitematā Greenways Plan.

25.     These have influenced recommendations in the work programme by guiding the prioritisation of the programme and defining the scope of works to ensure the sought outcome is achieved.

26.     Some of the key projects to be accommodated in the work programme include:

·    (OLI) Ponsonby Park Civic Space Development (254 Ponsonby Road)

·    Basque Park Renewal and Upgrade

·    Central Library Roof Remediation

·    Cox’s Bay to Wharf Road Greenway

·    Grey Lynn Park Develop New Changing Rooms

·    Heard Park Concept Plan

·    Hobson Bay Walkway

·    Home Reserve Playground

·    Myers Park Caretakers Cottage

·    Pt Erin Pool Comprehensive Renewal

·    Victoria Park Halsey Street Pathway

·    Western Springs Lakeside Playground Renewal.

27.     The phasing of projects over various years is recommended to meet budget requirements.  In this regard careful consideration has been given to the delivery timing of the Central Library roof remediation projects which has meant that various Waitematā renewals for paths, park roads, structures and signage will be phased in later years.

28.     Of note in the work programme is the Grey Lynn Park development of new changing rooms which is scheduled for construction in the 2019/2020 financial year.

29.     The proposed work programme in Attachment A contains:

·    number of projects excluding leases and contract lines over three years: 47

·    indicative cost for proposed projects in the 2019/2020 financial year: $7,093,893.

Regional Programme

30.     The Long-term Plan 2018 - 2028 includes budgets which support the delivery of regional programmes. These budgets are allocated to specific projects within a regional programme by the governing body.

31.     Where budget is allocated to a project in the regional programme that falls within a local board decision making allocation (e.g. a local park), that project is included in the local board work programme. The local board then has decision making responsibility for that project, within the parameters set by the governing body, namely location, scope and budget.

32.     Regional budgets include:

·    local parks and sports field development (growth)

·    coastal renewals

·    slips prevention and remediation.

33.     Projects in these regional programmes are identified and prioritised based on consideration of several factors.

34.     For the local parks and sports field development programme, this includes:

·    extent to which residential growth is generating demand for the project

·    current levels of provision

·    available budget.

35.     For coastal renewals and slips prevention and remediation this includes:

·    asset condition

·    relative hazard and risk

·    available budget.

36.     The allocation of budget to specific projects will be approved by the Environment and Community Committee in July 2019.

37.     The local board has an opportunity to provide formal feedback, through resolution to this report, for consideration by the Environment and Community Committee prior to approval of the regional programmes.

Capital Programme Delivery

Cost estimates subject to change

38.     Budget allocations within the work programme are best estimates only. Project costings are subject to change and refinement as projects progress through the design and delivery process. Greater clarity will be determined around the specific work required and the cost of delivery of that work once the details are defined.

39.     The delivery of individual projects is managed within the overall work programme budget for each local board. Where significant changes to project budgets may need to be considered, or if new projects are added to the work programme, changes may be required to the programme to accommodate final project costs as the year progresses.

 

Risk adjusted programme

40.     Several projects have been identified in the work programme as “risk adjusted programme (RAP)” projects.

41.     These are projects that have budget allocated in the 2020/2021 financial year (i.e. year two of the three-year programme). Staff propose to commence work in the 2019/2020 year on the delivery of these risk adjusted projects.

42.     By progressing these identified projects alongside the 2019/2020 projects in the programme, it is intended that, should projects identified for delivery in year one of the work programme be delayed for any reason, staff will be able to proceed with agreed alternative projects to ensure that the full annual budget is delivered each year.

43.     Approval is sought from the local board for staff to commence work on those projects identified in the work programme as risk adjusted programme projects in the 2019/2020 year.

Delegation for approval of changes to the work programme

44.     The delivery of the proposed work programme in an efficient and timely manner may require amendments to be made to the agreed work programme during the year. Such amendments could include:

·    changes to project scope, budgets, timing

·    addition of new projects within available budget

·    cancelling or putting approved projects on hold.

45.     Any changes to the approved work programme require approval from the local board. Approval will normally be sought through resolution at a business meeting.

46.     Local boards are also able to delegate authority to approve some or all amendments to the work programme to the chair, to another member of the local board, or to staff. Such delegation would allow changes to be made without the timeframes required to provide formal reports and would support the efficient delivery of the work programme.

47.     Should the local board choose to delegate authority to approve changes to the work programme, it is anticipated that any changes would be workshopped with the local board prior to any delegated decision being taken. Any changes made under delegation would be reported back to the local board in their quarterly report.

Leasing work programme

48.     Community leases, commonly on public parks and reserves, are a valuable way in which the council provides support to community organisations across the region. These groups provide a wide range of community activities and services aligned with recognised local priorities and are a key part of the mosaic of community activity and infrastructure in Auckland.

49.     Attachment B – Community Leases provides a detailed list of the community leases and licences that will expire or are due for renewal over the 2019/2020 financial year. Following approval of the work programme staff will proceed with review and renewal of these leases and licences as appropriate during the financial year.

50.     Two additional project lines include those leases and licences proposed to be progressed in the 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 financial years respectively. It also includes the additional leases and licences that will be deferred from the 2018/2019 financial year to the 2019/2020 financial year.

51.     Straight forward lease renewals without variations will be processed in accordance with agreed delegations with a written memo to the local board providing the opportunity for the local board to request further information or a formal report. More complex community leases will be reported to the local board at a business meeting.

 

Operational maintenance work programme

52.     The regular maintenance of all council-owned built and open space assets plays an important part in:

·    increasing the long-term durability of Community Facilities assets

·    improving the safety of Community Facilities assets

·    ensuring the enjoyment of Community Facilities assets by the users.

53.     In the 2019 - 2022 Community Facilities Work Programme, there are three line-items dedicated to all maintenance in the local board area:

·    Full Facilities Maintenance Contracts – these contracts include all buildings, parks and open space assets, sports fields, coastal management and storm damage response. From 1 July 2019 council is responsible for streetscapes maintenance from Auckland Transport.

·    Arboriculture Maintenance Contracts – these contracts include all tree management and maintenance.

·    Ecological Restoration Maintenance Contracts – these contracts include pest plant management within ecologically significant areas and animal pest management across all parks and reserves.

54.     Staff will be able to provide regular reporting on maintenance through monthly updates to the local boards and through the quarterly report. Community Facilities is also providing additional weekly updates to all elected members on contractor performance.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

55.     The 2019 - 2022 work programme has been developed in consultation with other council departments as part of the council’s integrated local board work programme approach. This approach aimed to improve the quality of advice for the local board through collaboration and understanding across departments.

56.     The council’s Service Strategy and Integration department were involved in the development of the project scopes for the Grey Lynn Community Centre renewal and the Myers Park Caretakers Cottage renewal.

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

Local impacts and local board views

57.     The Community Facilities Work Programme has been created through a combination of local board feedback, asset condition assessments and agreed levels of service.

58.     The 2019 - 2022 Community Facilities Work Programme has been considered by the local board in a series of workshops from October 2018 to May 2019. The views expressed by local board members during the workshops have informed the recommended work programmes.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

59.     The 2019 - 2022 Community Facilities Work Programme ensures that all facilities and open space assets continue to be well-maintained assets that benefit the local community, including Māori. When developing and delivering work programmes consideration is given to how the activities can contribute to Māori well-being, values, culture and traditions.

60.     Where any aspects of the proposed work programme are anticipated to have a significant impact on sites of importance to mana whenua then appropriate engagement will be undertaken.

61.     Staff are also attending mana whenua forum’s monthly to receive feedback on specific projects within the 2019 - 2022 Community Facilities Work Programme.

62.     Activities in the work programmes that are specific to Māori outcomes include:

·    Hobson Bay Walkway (Thomas Bloodworth Reserve to Point Resolution)

·    Ngahere (Urban Forest) Strategy – Waitematā Action Plan Delivery FY19/20.

64.     The proposed work programme can be accommodated within the available local board budgets. Approval of the work programme does not have significant financial implications, unless projects experience a significant overspend or underspend.

65.     Regular updates on the delivery of the programme will be provided to the local board. These updates will identify progress of all projects and potential amendments to the approved programme including changes to budget allocation and timing.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

66.     Where a work programme activity cannot be completed on time, due to unforeseen circumstances, this will be signalled to the local board at the earliest opportunity.  The risk adjusted programme (RAP) will be used to progress those projects identified as ready to proceed under the RAP.

67.     If the proposed Community Facilities work programme is not approved at the business meeting, there is a risk that the proposed projects may not be delivered within the 2019/2020 financial year.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

68.     Once approved, delivery of activities identified in the Community Facilities work programme will commence from 1 July 2019.

69.     The work programmes identify if further decisions are required for each activity. These will be brought to the local board when appropriate.

70.     Progress and updates on work programmes will be reported to the local board for each quarter of the financial year.

Context

7.       In late 2018, in alignment to its local board plan outcomes, the Waitematā Local Board provided strategic direction to staff regarding the projects it would like to fund in the 2019/2020 financial year. The local board noted its strong commitment to the environment, and noted its:

·        desire to play a role in air quality monitoring in the city centre through local board funding or the promotion of monitoring through local board communications

·        interest in increasing stream restoration work at new sites or increasing funding for this work at existing sites within the local board area

·        ongoing support for low carbon and community garden initiatives.

8.       In response to the direction set by the local board, Infrastructure and Environmental Services staff provided a draft local environment work programme for the local board’s feedback at a workshop on 12 March 2018.

9.       The local board indicated its support in principle for the proposed projects, but requested that staff provide more detail on the Te Wai Ōrea restoration plan prior to its approval. In response to this, staff provided further project details and information on how Healthy Waters will supplement the project with pest fish removal and filter lake improvements in May 2019.

10.     Based on these workshop discussions, a total of 10 local environmental projects to be funded from the board’s locally driven initiatives operational budget are proposed. These will be delivered by the Infrastructure and Environmental Services directorate as part of the board’s 2019/2020 local environment work programme. The draft work programme is included as Attachment A to this report.

Analysis and advice

11.     A brief description of each of the proposed projects for delivery as part of the board’s 2019/2020 local environment work programme is provided below. Further detail on these projects is provided in Attachment A.

Waitītiko (Meola Creek) restoration initiative – $19,200

12.     To achieve the local board plan objective to ‘improve air and water qualities and the health of our waterways’, the local board has indicated it would like to continue supporting the Waitītiko (Meola Creek) restoration initiative in the 2019/2020 financial year.

13.     At its June 2018 business meeting, the local board allocated $20,350 of its 2018/2019 locally driven initiatives budget to support year one of the Waitītiko (Meola Creek) restoration initiative (resolution WTM/2018/78). This will be the second year the local board supports the initiative which aims to restore Waitītiko by empowering community and school groups to undertake water quality monitoring and riparian restoration planting.

14.     This project is jointly funded with the Albert-Eden Local Board and will continue at four sites on the Albert-Eden side of Waitītiko and at three sites on the Waitematā side. This stream catchment initiative requires funding from both local boards for the restoration activities. Albert-Eden has a slightly higher proposed investment of $21,350 due to work being spread across four sites.

15.     In the 2019/2020 financial year, the restorations sites within the Waitematā Local Board area will include Western Springs College, the Scouts MOTAT site and a new area behind the MOTAT Aviation Centre within the inanga spawning zone. Project benefits include native tree planting to improve water quality and increase urban forest cover, growing community capacity for weed management and animal pest eradication and connecting localised pest free initiatives such as Pest Free Point Chevalier and broader scale projects such as Pest Free Auckland.

Newmarket Stream community restoration project - $8,250

16.     To achieve the local board plan key initiative to ‘undertake localised solutions to restore our key waterways such as Newmarket Stream’, the local board has indicated it would like to continue supporting the Newmarket Stream community restoration project in the 2019/2020 financial year.

17.     At its June 2017 and 2018 business meetings, the local board allocated $20,000 and $22,500 respectively of its locally driven initiatives budget to support the Newmarket Stream restoration project. This will be the third year of local board support and funding for 2019/2020 will focus on implementing year one of a five year schedule of restoration work that was developed in the 2018/2019 financial year. The restoration plan guides the control of pest plants and animals and riparian planting of native species. Community planting days will also be coordinated as part of the project.

18.     This project is jointly funded with the Ōrākei Local Board as the stream divides the local board areas. This stream restoration requires funding from both local boards for the restoration activities. Ōrākei has a higher proposed investment of $15,000 due to their desire to upscale restoration activities, including planting ponga on the stream banks to enhance fish habitat. 

19.     This project will:

·        increase both terrestrial and aquatic biodiversity by creating ecological corridors and restored riparian margins

·        empower the local community to connect and advocate for their local natural environment and for positive freshwater outcomes

·        involve the community in workshops about weeds, pests and bird monitoring.

This will be the second year the board support the restoration initiative and funding for the 2019/2020 financial year will focus on implementing year one of the five year restoration plan developed during the previous financial year. Activities will include pest plant control and plant site preparation for planting of native plants, as well engaging a community group to implement Wai Care monitoring.

Te Wai Ōrea restoration plan - $30,000

24.     To achieve the local board plan outcome of the natural environment being ‘valued, protected and enhanced’, the board has indicated it would like to support the development of a restoration plan for Te Wai Ōrea (Western Springs) wetland and lake edge planting in the 2019/2020 financial year.

Māori impact assessment

Waitītiko (Meola Creek) restoration initiative

The Western Springs College Nga Puna o Waiorea, Māori immersion- Rumaki unit, have the opportunity to participate and be involved in the restoration activities. A Ngāti Whātua  Ōrākei representative participates in the Meola community meetings independently through their involvement in the Point Chevalier Pā Harakeke weavers collective. Mana whenua representatives will also be invited to share local history and stories of Waitītiko with the wider Meola community through forums such as the Meola community meetings.

Newmarket Stream community restoration project

This project will help to restore the mauri of the Newmarket Stream by implementing the management plan developed by Te Ngāhere. Plants for riparian planting will be sourced from Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei and Te Whangai nurseries.

Waipapa Stream Restoration

This project will significantly improve the wellbeing of a culturally significant site within the Waitematā Local Board area. Plants for the restoration works will be supplied by Ōkahu Rakau Nursery, Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei.

Waipāruru Stream Restoration

Waipāruru is recognised as a place of value for mana whenua. Mana whenua were provided the opportunity to feedback on the draft restoration plan for Waipāruru Stream. Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei stated that in line with their iwi management plan, Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei wishes to ensure that water is managed, and where necessary restored, to maintain or enhance mauri and to protect ecosystem, amenity, and mana whenua values. In particular water quality in streams, rivers and sea should be fit for swimming and enable safe gathering of kai. Public access to waterways and the coast should be protected and enhanced.

Te Wai Ōrea restoration plan

Te Wai Ōrea is a significant site for mana whenua and they have played an integral role in the development of the Te mahere whakawhanake i te papa rēhia o Te Wai Ōrea - Western Springs Lakeside Te Wai Ōrea Park Development Plan. Mana whenua will be invited to be involved in the development and implementation of the restoration plan.

Waitematā Low Carbon Action Plan implementation, including:

·    Low Carbon Lifestyles

·    Low Carbon Network

·    Low Carbon Multi-unit Dwellings

·    Low Carbon Schools

·    Compost Food Waste Initiative

These projects do not specifically target sustainable living for Māori. However, it is acknowledged that sustainable living practices have integral links with concepts of kaitiakitanga and the Māori world view, where people are closely connected to the land and nature.

The Waste Minimisation and Management Plan embraces Te Ao Māori and staff will ensure the Compost Food Waste Initiative reflects this.

Analysis and advice

7.       The 2019/2020 local economic development work programme has been developed having regard to the local board’s priorities for local economic development set out in the Waitematā Local Board Plan 2017.

Waitematā Business Sustainability Kick Start Programme ($24,000)

8.       The proposed project is a business sustainability development programme targeting ten businesses in Waitematā Local Board area.

9.       The programme aims to further increase participants' capability in environmental and sustainability related-practices including waste reduction, energy efficiency, travel planning and packaging.

10.     As part of the programme each business will receive eight hours of sustainable business coaching. An individualised action plan will then be developed to assist participants to improve their business sustainability practices in the future.

11.     In addition, a series of three collaborative events will be held with the following themes:

1        Getting Started: Measuring up, energy efficiency, transport and carbon

2        Beating Waste: Procurement, plastic and minimising waste 

3        Sharing Successes: Communications, certifications and awards entries.

12.     Businesses will be invited to bring along their employees, suppliers and any passionately sustainable customers to share their learnings and ideas for improving their sustainability outcome.

13.     Participating businesses are expected to pay $500 directly to the service provider as their entry fee.

Young Enterprise Scheme ($5,000)

14.     Auckland Business Chamber, on behalf of the Young Enterprise Trust, delivers the Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) in Auckland. YES is a practical, year-long programme for year 12 and 13 students.

15.     Fostering youth entrepreneurship is a key requirement for developing an innovative economy and creating employment pathways for our young people. Through the programme, students develop creative ideas into actual businesses, complete with real products and services and real profit and loss. Students learn key work skills and business knowledge including business fundamentals, planning, interpersonal relations, financial, decision making, reporting, risk management and teamwork. The YES helps create a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship amongst Auckland’s young people.

16.     The funding from the local board will support the delivery of the overall YES program, including the Kick Start days in February 2020 where we will specifically acknowledge local board support. The Kick start days are held in sub-regions (North, South, East, Central/West) and are the first day students get to meet the Young Enterprise Team, and find out about their 2020 year, what YES is about, and what is in store for them. All schools in the local board area that have shown an interest in YES are invited. In addition the invite is extended to those schools who have not shown an interest to enable them to make a decision as to whether to participate.

23.     There is a risk that participants signed up to the Sustainability Kick Start programme do not attend the course or only attend for some of the course. As this is a course for a maximum of ten businesses it is considered important that the participating businesses are committed to attend all the sessions. This is especially the case where we have a waiting list which there is potential for. To mitigate this a charge of $500 per participating businesses has been included in the project proposal.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

24.     Following approval by the local board the Local Economic Development team at ATEED will begin to implement the programme from 1 July 2019. Where there is a need for further scoping of activities this will be undertaken and presented back to the local board as required.

Recommendation/s

That the Waitematā Local Board:

Horopaki

Context

6.       The local board decides which activities to allocate its annual work programme budget to in order to achieve the outcomes set out in its 2017 local board plan.

7.       The development of the 2019/2020 work programme has built on the approach piloted for 2018/2019, which enabled staff to work in a more integrated way across departments to improve local outcomes.

8.       In preparation for the 2019/2020 work programme process, an overview group was created from the following council departments to develop an agreed approach to achieve improved integration:

· Arts, Community and Events

· Community Facilities

· Libraries

· Infrastructure and Environmental Services

· Parks, Sports and Recreation

· Community Services - Service, Strategy and Integration.

9.       Teams made up of representatives from these departments were established to explore shared priorities and objectives for each local board area, and to develop the work programme in a collaborative way in response to local board plan outcomes.

10.     Table 1 shows the business objectives and strategic alignment for community services departments.

Analysis and advice

11.     The local board provided feedback on proposed activities for the new financial year at a series of workshops between September 2018 and May 2019.

12.     Initial workshops were an opportunity for the local board to communicate to staff its strategic direction. At subsequent workshops, the local board discussed its priorities for budget allocation and requested further scoping for existing and new activities.

13.     The activities in the work programme responds to the outcomes and objectives that the local board identified in its 2017 local board plan.

14.     The work programme is made up of approved activities from previous financial years, including annually occurring events or projects and ongoing programmes. It also includes new initiatives supported by the local board.

15.     Budget is allocated to activities for the 2019/2020 financial year. If zero-dollars is shown this reflects that the project is able to be delivered in-house with no additional external technical advice and support.

16.     Table 2 shows activities and allocated budget that are new in 2019/2020 or are significantly different to the 2018/2019 work programme.

Council group impacts and views

18.     The work programme has been developed by a collective of operational council departments.

19.     The inter-departmental connections made throughout the process will enable an integrated approach to delivery of the activities and allow for further collaboration throughout the year. These working relationships will also support an integrated approach to work programme development in future years.

Local impacts and local board views

20.     The local board provided direction and feedback on the draft work programme at a series of workshops.

Financial implications

26.     Activities are funded from one or multiple budget sources which include: Asset Based Services (ABS) Opex; Locally Driven Initiatives (LDI) Capex and Opex.

27.     Each activity line has a budget allocation, which covers the delivery for the 2019/2020 period. Where activity lines show a zero-dollar budget, this reflects that the implementation costs are met through staff salary or other funding sources.

28.     The community services LDI budget for the local board for the 2019/2020 financial year is $1,192,870.

29.     Where activities are cancelled or no longer required, the local board can reallocate the budget to an existing work programme activity or to create a new activity.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

30.     The key risks for activities that are managed through the work programme are non-delivery, time delays and budget overrun. The local board will be updated quarterly on delivery including highlighting any potential delays and budget implications.

31.     As the work programme includes ongoing activity and annually occurring events or projects, the associated risks have been identified and managed in previous years. Additional risk management for these activities is ongoing and can be reported quarterly.

32.     Risks and mitigations for new activity lines were considered during the scoping phase. There may be risks associated with trialling a new activity for the first year. These will be continually assessed and reported to the local board through quarterly reporting when required.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

33.     Delivery of approved activities will commence at the beginning of the financial year, 1 July 2019 and progress will be reported to the local board for each quarter.

34.     The work programme identifies further decisions and milestones for each activity, these will be brought to the local board when appropriate.

Changes to Local Board Standing Orders

File No.: CP2019/10430

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To provide information about the implications of the Local Government Regulatory Systems Amendment Act 2019 and to recommend changes to the Waitematā Local Board’s standing orders to align with the change in the legislation.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Local Government Regulatory Systems Amendment Act 2019 makes changes to various statutes, including the Local Government Act 2002, Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987, the Local Electoral Act 2001, the Dog Control Act 1996, the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002 and the Rates Rebate Act 1973.

3.       Prior to the legislation change, the Local Government Act provided for an extraordinary meeting where:

a)      it could be called by resolution, or by requisition by the mayor or one third of the members

b)      the notice period was three days (unless it was called by resolution in which case the notice period could be not less than 24 hours)

c)      if it needed to be called earlier it could be called by the mayor, or, if the mayor was unavailable, the chief executive. The notice period could be not less than 24 hours.

4.       As a result of the change, the meeting called under c) above is referred to as an ‘emergency meeting’ rather than an’ extraordinary meeting’.

5.       There is a change to the definition of public notice – which requires notification on a council’s website in addition to a newspaper.

6.       There is a change to the definition of ‘working day’ to exclude a province’s anniversary.

7.       As detailed in the Local Government Act 2002 Schedule 7 clause 27 (3), a change to standing orders requires a 75 per cent majority vote. The Waitematā Local Board’s standing orders need to be changed to reflect the changes in the law.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Waitematā Local Board:

a)      note the new statutory responsibility of the chief executive:

facilitating and fostering representative and substantial elector participation in elections and polls held under the Local Electoral Act 2001;

b)      amend standing order 2.3.3 by replacing:

Calling an extraordinary meeting at earlier time

The chairperson, or if they are unavailable, the chief executive, may call a meeting for an earlier time if this is necessary to deal with the business.

The person calling such a meeting must give each member and the chief executive notice of the time and place of the meeting and the matters in respect of which the meeting is being called, by whatever means is reasonable in the circumstances, at least 24 hours before the meeting.

with:

Calling an emergency meeting

The chairperson, or if they are unavailable, the chief executive, may call an emergency meeting for an earlier time than is provided in Standing Order 2.3.2 if this is necessary to deal with the business.

The person calling such a meeting must give each member and the chief executive notice of the time and place of the meeting and the matters in respect of which the meeting is being called, by whatever means is reasonable in the circumstances, at least 24 hours before the meeting.

c)      Amend standing order 7.2.3 by replacing:

Public notification about extraordinary meetings

Where any extraordinary meeting of the local board or a committee is called, and notice of that meeting cannot be given in the manner required or permitted (by Standing Order 7.2.1 as appropriate), Auckland Council shall publicly notify or otherwise advertise that meeting and the general nature of business to be transacted at that meeting as soon as practicable before the meeting is to be held, as is reasonable in the circumstances.

with:

Notification of extraordinary / emergency meetings

Where the council calls an extraordinary or emergency meeting but cannot give public notice to the extent required in Standing Order 7.2.1, the council must publicly notify the meeting, and the general nature of business to be considered at it, as soon as reasonably practicable before the meeting. If it is not practicable to publish a notice in newspapers before the meeting, the council must publicly notify the meeting as soon as practicable on the council’s website and in any other manner that is reasonable in the circumstances.

d)      Amend standing order 9.4 (Definitions) by replacing:

Extraordinary meeting has the meaning defined in clause 22 of Schedule 7 of the Local Government Act 2002.

with:

Emergency meeting has the meaning defined in clause 22A of Schedule 7 of the Local Government Act 2002.

Extraordinary meeting has the meaning defined in clause 22 of Schedule 7 of the Local Government Act 2002.

e)      Amend standing order 9.4 (Definitions) by replacing:

Meeting means:

(a)  any first or ordinary or extraordinary meeting of the local board

(b)  any meeting of any committee, standing committee, joint committee, special committee or subcommittee of the local board,

The provisions of these standing orders regarding public access and notification need not apply at any meeting of the local board, or committee of the local board, at which no resolutions or decisions are made.

with:

 

Meeting means:

(a) any first or ordinary or extraordinary or emergency meeting of the local board

f)       Amend standing order 9.4 (Definitions) by replacing:

with:

Publicly notified means made known to members of the public by a notice on the council’s website, until any opportunity for review or appeal has lapsed, and by a notice printed in appropriate newspapers circulating in the Auckland region.

g)      Amend standing order 9.4 (Definitions) by replacing:

Working day means any day of the week other than:

(a)  a Saturday, a Sunday, Waitangi Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, Anzac Day, the Sovereign’s birthday and Labour Day; and

(b)  if Waitangi Day or Anzac Day falls on a Saturday or a Sunday, the following Monday; and

(c)  a day in the period commencing with 25 December in any year and ending with 15 January in the following year.

with:

Horopaki

Context

8.       The Local Government Regulatory Systems Amendment Act 2019 (LGRSAA) came into force on 21 March 2019.  The LGRSAA is an omnibus Act in that it makes minor amendments to several pieces of legislation.

9.         The LGRSAA amends the Local Electoral Act 2001 to include a new principle for “representative and substantial electoral participation in local elections and polls”, and imposes a new responsibility on the Chief Executive of the council by amending the Chief Executive’s responsibilities in the Local Government Act 2002 (LGA) section 42(2)(d):

(d)     facilitating and fostering representative and substantial elector participation in elections and polls held under the Local Electoral Act 2001;

10.     It amends the definition of “public notice” and “publicly notified” under the LGA and the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA) to require notification both on the council’s website and in newspapers.

11.     It creates a new category of council meeting called an “emergency meeting”, separate from “extraordinary meeting”.  Previously, extraordinary meetings had two types of notice requirements.  Where the more urgent form of notice is used, the meeting is now referred to as an emergency meeting.  This applies to giving notice to members under the LGA and to public notices under LGOIMA.

12.     It amends the definition of working day under the LGA and LGOIMA to exclude a province’s anniversary day being counted as a “working day”.

13.     It makes minor amendments to The Dog Control Act 1996, the Local Electoral Act 2001, the Rates Rebates Act 1973 and makes changes to the LGA by specifying timeframes for making certain documents publicly available. These legislative changes are minor in nature and do not impact on local board standing orders.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

14.     The changes made by the LGRSAA are minor in nature, nevertheless it is necessary to amend the Waitematā Local Board’s standing orders to align the language to reflect current legislation.

15.     Local boards can consider a change to standing orders which is not related to LGRSAA.  Standing Order 3.3.3 “Electronic Attendance” was identified as one which could be amended as many local boards and committees do not allow electronic attendance by a member who is out of Auckland for non-council reasons.

16.     This restriction is not contained in the Waitematā Local Board Standing Orders as electronic attendance is at the discretion of the chair.  Consequently, there is no reason to amend Standing Order 3.3.3.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

17.     The changes to the standing orders do not impact on the wider council group.

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

Local impacts and local board views

18.     This is a report to 21 local boards. All local boards need to make changes to align their standing orders to LGRSAA.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

19.     The changes to standing orders brought about through the LGRSAA do not impact on the Māori community.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

20.     There are no financial implications to making these changes to standing orders.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

21.     LGA Schedule 7 clause 27 (2) states that the standing orders of a local authority must not contravene the LGA or any other Act. If local board standing orders are not aligned to changes in the legislation, there is a risk that the local board may act inconsistently with the legislation by relying on standing orders that are not up to date.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

22.     Following the Waitematā Local Board resolution to amend the standing orders, staff will make the appropriate changes and recirculate the updated standing orders.
