Local impacts and local board views

17.     The board is requested to note that section 48 of the Community Grants Policy states; ‘we will also provide feedback to unsuccessful grant applicants about why they have been declined, so they will know what they can do to increase their chances of success next time’.

18.     A summary of each application received through Albert-Eden Local Grants, Round One 2019/2020, multi-board and Albert-Eden Quick Response, Round One 2019/2020 is provided in Attachment B, Attachment C and Attachment D.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Auckland Council’s Māori Responsiveness Unit has provided input and support towards the development of the community grant processes.

20.     Eleven applicants applying to local grant round one have indicated that their project targets Māori or Māori outcomes.

Financial implications

21.     The allocation of grants to community groups is within the adopted Long-term Plan 2018-2028 and local board agreements.

22.     The local board has set a total community grants budget of $130,000 for the 2019/2020 financial year. At the July 2019 Albert-Eden Local Board business meeting, a total of $10,000 was reallocated to the community grants budget from the locally driven initiative operational expenditure budget as follows:

d)           cancel the 2019/2020 Fowlds Park Forest Restoration Plan Implementation (3236) project and reallocate:

ii.            $10,000 locally driven initiative operational expenditure budget to the Community Grants fund (332).

AE/2019/134

23.     This increases the community grants budget for 2019/2020 to $140,000.

24.     Twenty-eight applications were received for Albert-Eden Local Grants, Round One 2019/2020, requesting a total of $201,837.02 and sixteen multiboard applications were received requesting a total of $69,911.39.

Context

4.       In accordance with the Local Government (Auckland Council) Act 2009 and the Local Government Act 2002, each local board is required to monitor and report on the implementation of its 2018/2019 Local Board Agreement. This includes reporting on the performance measures for local activities, and the overall Financial Impact Statement for the local board.

5.       In addition to the compliance purpose, local board annual reports are an opportunity to tell the wider performance story with a strong local flavour, including how the local board is working towards the outcomes of their local board plan.

6.       Auckland Council currently has a series of bonds quoted on the NZX Debt Market (quoted bonds) maintained by NZX Limited. As a result, the council is subject to obligations under the NZX Main Board and Debt Market Listing Rules (listing rules) and the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 (FMCA). Under these obligations, local boards may not release annual financial results in any form, including publishing their agenda/minutes containing their results, until council group results are released to the NZX on 27 September 2019.  Therefore, the attached annual report is being presented as confidential.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

36.     The local board’s work programme contains a number of projects which provide direct outcomes for Māori, such as:

·   Local Māori Responsiveness Action Plan (1243). Staff have been working with Gardens for Health on structuring partner gatherings according to Te Ao Māori and Tikanga principles, connecting with Te Mahurehure Marae to explore potential partnerships, connected with the Te Roopu Kaumatua-Kuia o Owairaka at one of their monthly hui to present information on their work and explore potential collaborations and met with the Kura Kaupapa Māori o Nga Maungarongo to begin planning for the 2020 Kai festival and local board plan engagement.

·   Celebrating Te Ao Māori and strengthening responsiveness to Māori – Whakatipu I te reo Māori (1082). Epsom Library hosted Stardome Planetorium and Observatory staff who ran a session with iPads where children were able to observe the night sky, identifying Matariki stars and learning about their significance for the Māori New Year. Epsom Library also had a special storytime and a craft session making Porotiti, a Māori musical instrument. Point Chevalier celebrated Matariki with a special storytime and Mount Albert with Te Reo Māori songs and stories. Point Chevalier is also sharing the story of Matariki with a soup making and movie event and star craft weaving. All three Albert-Eden Libraries are committed to Te Ao Māori and are promoting the language through everyday interactions.

·   Māori naming of reserves and facilities (494). The project is identifying opportunities for park and facility naming/renaming and engaging with mana whenua to develop Māori names and enhance Auckland’s Māori identity and Māori heritage. Five mana whenua have indicated naming interest and are now working through the naming process to ensure one name is gifted back to the local board per site.

37.     The local board, through its work programme responds and delivers upon council’s Māori Responsiveness Framework through the following actions:

·   fostering and building strong relationships with mana whenua and matawaaka by ensuring their views are considered prior to making decisions on local projects.

·   embedding mana whenua customary practices within the development of local projects (for example, blessings at sod-turnings).

Financial implications

38.     This report is provided to enable the Albert-Eden Local Board to monitor the organisation’s progress and performance in delivering the 2018/2019 work programmes and to report this to the public. This report is for information only and therefore there are no financial implications associated with this report.

Financial performance

39.     Auckland Council currently has a number of bonds quoted on the New Zealand Stock Exchange (NZX). As a result, the Council is subject to obligations under the NZX Main Board and Debt Market Listing Rules and the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 sections 97 and 461H. These obligations restrict the release of annual financial reports and results until the Auckland Council Group results are released to the NZX – on or about 30 September 2019. Due to these obligations the financial performance attached to the quarterly report is excluded from the public.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

40.     While the risk of non-delivery of the entire work programme is rare the likelihood for risk relating to individual activities does vary. Capital projects, for instance, are susceptible to more risk as on-time and on-budget delivery is dependent on weather conditions, approvals (for example, building consents) and is susceptible to market conditions.

41.     Information about any significant risks and how they are being managed and/or mitigated is addressed in the ‘Activities with significant issues’ section.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

42.     Deferral of budgets of unfinished activities will be added into 2019/2020 work programmes by quarter one reporting.

Auckland Film Protocol consultation feedback and recommended changes

File No.: CP2019/15162

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To receive a summary of consultation feedback on the draft Auckland Film Protocol, and to provide feedback on the recommended changes to the document.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       Auckland Council is currently reviewing the Auckland Film Protocol.  The Auckland Film Protocol sets out:

·   the commitment of the council group to supporting filming in Auckland;

·   expectations and rules that filmmakers must abide by when filming in Auckland; and

·   provides guidance for filmmakers on the process for approval to film in Auckland.

3.       The purpose of the review was to ensure that the Auckland Film Protocol is up-to-date and identify emerging trends, issues or opportunities that should be addressed.  Content of the Auckland Film Protocol was reviewed against legislation referenced in the document and against policies and plans of the Auckland Council group to identify areas where the Auckland Film Protocol should be updated.  Engagement with staff involved in the process of assessing and approving film permit applications, from across the council group, was undertaken to inform the review and proposed amendments to the Protocol. 

4.       A revised draft of the Auckland Film Protocol was reported to the Environment and Community Committee in June 2019 for consideration and was approved for public consultation (resolution number ENV/2019/73). 

5.       The following is a summary of the key changes made to the Auckland Film Protocol before public consultation was undertaken:

·   Native species: new content added stating that Auckland Council may place additional conditions on film permits to protect native species

·   Kauri dieback: new content added providing information about kauri dieback and stating that filmmakers will be required to clean equipment to council specifications when filming in areas where kauri are present.

·   Drones: new content added stating that a film permit is required for commercial filming and requiring filmmakers to comply with Civil Aviation rules, Auckland Council bylaws and conditions.

·   Historic heritage: new content added stating that filming in proximity to historic (including cultural) heritage will be subject to conditions to protect these sites.

·   Health and safety: new content added to reflect the new Health and Safety at work Act 2015 and requirements to prepare a site specific health and safety plan.

·   Content of the Auckland Film Protocol was updated to reflect current policy, plans and bylaws of Auckland Council.  Some structural and editorial amendments were also made to improve the logic, flow and readability of the document.

6.       Public consultation was undertaken over a three week period between 21 June and 12 July 2019.

7.       A total of 74 submissions were received during the public consultation period.  Albert-Eden Local Board residents provided a total of 9 submissions on the draft Auckland Film Protocol, representing 12 per cent of all submissions.  The views of Albert-Eden submitters were generally similar to regional views.  Staff are proposing some changes to the draft Auckland Film Protocol to address submitter concerns; the proposed changes to the draft Auckland Film protocol are shown in track changes in Attachment B.

8.       This report provides a summary of public feedback and of proposed changes to the draft Auckland Film Protocol to address feedback.  The following is a high‑level summary of the key changes proposed to the Auckland Film Protocol in response to public consultation:

·   Natural environment: include stronger messaging about the importance of respecting Auckland’s natural environment, that film permits may be subject to conditions to manage impacts and/or that filming may be subject to restrictions where these impacts cannot be appropriately managed.

·   Native species: include stronger messages around the potential impact of filming on native species, such as birds and that filming permits may be subject to conditions to manage impacts and/or that filming may be subject to restrictions where these impacts cannot be appropriately managed.

·   Kauri dieback: amend to ensure that conditions may be placed on film permits in any public open space (controlled by Auckland Council) where kauri are present.

·   Drones: include additional guidance on the use of drones around native birds and in proximity to other users of public open space and adjoining private properties.

·   Impact on access to public open space: include stronger messages around the need for filmmakers to be respectful of other users of public open space and state that film permits give limited permission to occupy public open space.

·   Compliance and enforcement: include stronger messages around the requirement for filmmakers to comply with the Auckland Council policies, plans, bylaws and the terms and conditions of their film permit.

9.       Submission themes and proposed changes are summarised in Attachment A.

Horopaki

Context

10.     The first version of the Auckland Film Protocol (the protocol) was adopted by the Regional Development and Operations Committee (resolution number RDO/2013/27) on 14 March 2013.  A review of fees for filming in the Auckland Region was undertaken in 2014 and a new set of region‑wide charges was recommended; providing a simplified and harmonised range of charges.  The Governing Body adopted a region‑wide schedule of film fees and revised Auckland Film Protocol on 28 May 2015 (resolution number GB/2015/36).

11.     Since the Protocol was adopted in 2015 there have been a number of changes to legislation and to Auckland Council’s policy and planning framework. The purpose of the review of the Protocol was to:

·   ensure that the Protocol is up-to-date; and

·   identify emerging trends, issues or opportunities to be addressed in the Protocol.

Content of the Protocol was reviewed against legislation referenced in the document and against policies and plans of the Auckland Council group to identify areas where the Protocol should be updated.  Engagement with staff involved in the process of assessing and approving film permit applications, from across the Council group, was undertaken to inform the review and proposed amendments to the Protocol.

12.     Workshops were held in September and October 2018 to engage with local boards that experience a high volume of filming.

13.     Engagement to inform the preparation of the revised draft Protocol was also undertaken with:

·   mana whenua: mana whenua interests are represented by 19 iwi (tribal) authorities in Tāmaki Makaurau, Auckland.  The 19 iwi authorities were invited, in writing, to inform the review of the Protocol.

·   staff of the Tūpuna Maunga o Tāmaki Makaurau Authority to inform the review.

·   screen sector: the screen sector was invited to participate in a survey in April 2019 to inform the review.  The survey asked a series of general questions about the Protocol and experiences of filming in public open space in Auckland. 

·   public: the People’s Panel in September 2018; a total of 4,762 responses were received.  The survey asked a series of questions on views on and experiences of filming in Auckland. 

A high-level summary of feedback (including local board feedback) is provided in Attachment C.

14.     The review recommended that a range of changes be made to the Auckland Film Protocol, the following is a summary of the key changes proposed to the Environment and Community Committee:

·   Native species: include new content stating that Auckland Council may place additional conditions on film permits to protect native species

·   Kauri dieback: include new content providing information about kauri dieback and stating that filmmakers will be required to clean equipment to council specifications when filming in areas where kauri are present.

·   Drones: include new content stating that a film permit is required for commercial filming and requiring filmmakers to comply with Civil Aviation rules, Auckland Council bylaws and conditions.

·   Historic heritage: include new content stating that filming in proximity to historic (including cultural) heritage will be subject to conditions to protect these sites.

·   Health and safety: include new content to reflect the new Health and Safety at work Act 2015 and requirements to prepare a site specific health and safety plan.

·   Filming on Tūpuna Maunga: update content to reflect that applications to film on Tūpuna Maunga are assessed by the Tūpuna Maunga o Tāmaki Makaurau Authority.

·   Updates to content: update content to reflect current policy (e.g. smokefree policy), plans (Auckland Unitary Plan) and bylaws of Auckland Council.

·   Structural and editorial: amend some parts of the document to improve the logic, flow and readability of the document.

15.     The revised draft of the Auckland Film Protocol was approved by the Envrionment and Community Committee for public consultation in June 2019 (resolution number ENV/2019/73).

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

16.     Consultation on the revised draft of the Auckland Film Protocol took place from 21 June to 12 July 2019.  A total of 74 submissions were received; this represents a substantial increase on the 21 submission which were received in response to the 2015 review of the Auckland Film Protocol.  Of the submissions received, 72 were submitted using the online form and 2 non‑form hardcopy submissions were received. 

17.     Submitters were asked to identify if they worked in the screen sector or not, with:

·   29 submissions (39 per cent) received from individuals or organisations that identified themselves as working in the screen sector

·   45 submissions (61 per cent) received from individuals or organisations that do not work in the screen sector.

The questions included in the online form varied depending on whether the submitter identified themselves as working in the screen industry or not.

18.     A breakdown of all submissions received by local board area is shown in Table 1 below.  The small number of responses from individual local board areas means that an analysis of views by local board area was not possible for all local board areas.

Table 4: Summary of key reasons given for partially supporting Auckland Council’s film‑friendly approach.

Theme

Summary of key submission points

Access

·      the impacts on resident, including parking restrictions, road closures and ability to use public open space while filming is taking place need to be considered and managed;

·      need to ensure that film‑makers are respectful of other users of public open space.

Notification

·      there needs to be sufficient notification to ensure that residents and businesses are aware of open space being used for filming and are not inconvenienced.

Balance

·      need to consider and manage the impact that filming has on the environment and impacted residents;

·      need to balance the cumulative impacts of filming.

Equity

·      need to ensure that fees for commercial use of public places are fair.

 

22.     The key reasons given for not supporting Auckland Council’s film‑friendly approach were:

·   the cost to ratepayers of enabling filming;

·   that there is not enough protection for individuals, businesses and residents affected by filming being carried out on private property.

23.     A series of open‑ended questions were also included to elicit further information about responses to these questions and about a range of other topics.  Staff have worked through submissions to determine any changes to be recommended for the final revised Auckland Film Protocol.  Attachment A identifies key themes and submission points along with proposed staff responses.  

A summary of the most common submission themes and the proposed staff responses are shown in table 5.

25.     Engagement with staff involved in the process of assessing and approving film permit applications, from across the Council group, was undertaken to inform the review and proposed amendments to the Protocol.  This included engagement with Auckland Transport, Panuku Development Auckland, and with Auckland Council community facilities, region‑wide planning, social policy and bylaws, visitor experience and heritage

Local impacts and local board views

Role of local boards in film permitting

26.     Landowner approval is required to film on any public open space in the Auckland region.  Local boards are responsible for landowner approvals for local parks and reserves.  Engagement with local boards that experience a high volume of applications for film permits was undertaken in September and October 2018 to inform the review of the Auckland Film Protocol.  A summary of the key engagement themes is included in Attachment C and was reported to the Environment and Community Committee in July 2019.

27.     A key theme from local board engagement was that the film permit timeframes mean that landowner approval timeframes are very tight, particularly when considering complex or contentious applications.  It was also noted that the current timeframes do not allow sufficient time to consider applications at full board meetings or to consult key stakeholders.  Given this, the following options on film permit timeframes were presented to the Environment and Community Committee at a workshop in May 2019 and at the June 2019 meeting.

Option one: Status Quo

Option two: amend the permit timeframes

·   Option 2(a) the permit time frame is amended to be “up to five working days”.

·   Option 2(b) the permit time frame is increased to 5‑7 working days.

28.     Following direction from the Committee, that increasing timeframes could act as a disincentive making Auckland internationally uncompetitive, the status quo option was retained in the draft Auckland Film Protocol.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

29.     ATEED has an ongoing relationship with several mana whenua and mataawaka groups, across its whole portfolio of activity.  To inform the review of the Protocol the 19 Iwi Authorities were invited, in writing, to inform the review.  In relation to film permit applications Māori views and input may be obtained in several ways where there is a potential impact on particular land or sites. This is usually coordinated either by the film facilitator, or through the relevant parks manager.

30.     Specific processes are in place for the tūpuna maunga, with all commercial filming on the maunga requiring the approval of the Tūpuna Maunga o Tāmaki Makaurau Authority (Tūpuna Maunga Authority).  Screen Auckland facilitates all requests for approval to film on the tūpuna maunga.  Approval to film will be subject to conditions and restrictions set by the Tūpuna Maunga Authority.  Meetings were held with staff of the Tūpuna Maunga Authority to inform the review and ensure that proposed amendments are consistent with the policy of the Tūpuna Maunga Authority.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

31.     The proposed amendments to the Protocol do not impact on existing levels of service and will not impact on operational budgets.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

32.     There are no significant risks arising from the board giving feedback on the proposed changes to the revised draft Auckland Film Protocol at this time.

33.     If adoption of the revised Auckland Film Protocol is delayed this would impact on council’s ability to implement the proposed changes.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

34.     Public feedback and proposed amendments to the Auckland Film Protocol will be presented to the Environment and Community Committee for approval.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Albert-Eden Local Board:

a)      receive Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development’s (ATEED) update to the Albert-Eden Local Board – August 2019.

 

 

Horopaki

Context

5.       ATEED has two areas of focus:

Economic Development – including business support, business attraction and investment, local economic development, trade and industry development, skills employment and talent and innovation and entrepreneurship.

Destination - supporting sustainable growth of the visitor economy with a focus on destination marketing and management, major events, business events (meetings and conventions) and international student attraction and retention.

6.       These two portfolios also share a common platform relating to the promotion of the city globally to ensure that Auckland competes effectively with other mid-tier high quality of life cities.

7.       ATEED works with local boards, Council and Council-Controlled Organisations (CCOs) to support decision-making on local economic growth and facilitates or co-ordinates the delivery of local economic development activity. ATEED ensures that the regional activities that ATEED leads or delivers are fully leveraged to support local economic growth and employment.

8.       In addition, ATEED’s dedicated Local Economic Development (LED) team works with local boards who allocate locally driven initiatives (LDI) budget to economic development activities. The LED team delivers a range of services[1] such as the development of proposals, including feasibility studies that enable local boards to directly fund or otherwise advocate for the implementation of local initiatives.

9.       ATEED delivers its services at the local level through business hubs based in the north, west and south of the region, as well as its central office at 167B Victoria Street West.

10.     Additional information about ATEED’s role and activities can be found at www.aucklandnz.com/ateed

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

11.     As at 30 June[2], 3,303 businesses had been through an ATEED intervention or programme. Of these, 191 businesses were in the Albert-Eden Local Board area – 53 businesses went through Destination-related programmes and 138 businesses went through Economic Development-related programmes.

Economic Development

Locally Driven Initiatives:

12.     Albert-Eden business award: The 2019 awards dinner was held on 4 June 2019 at Eden Park, attended by 200 people consisting of 98 finalists, 75 extra paying guests and 27 Albert-Eden Local Board guests and sponsors. The awards dinner went very well and feedback on the night was positive. A handover meeting was held with Auckland Council’s events team on 13 June 2019, as this team will manage the delivery of the 2020 award programme. A debrief meeting was held with the local board on 19 June 2019.

13.     Marketview retail spend monitor: It was proposed during Q3 that further coaching should be provided to Mt Albert, Pt Chevalier and Sandringham business associations. The year ending June 2019 reports will be reported to the local board in August 2019.

14.     Epsom business engagement: The service provider completed the initial engagement with local businesses during Q3. Feedback was reported to the local board on 20 March 2019. The proposed three networking events will not be going ahead due to lack of interest from local businesses. Instead, it was agreed that the service provider would draft a business plan for Greenwoods Corner, an action plan on co-ordinating with other departments, and feedback to businesses. The final programme report along with Greenwoods Corner’s Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) analysis were submitted to the local board, and the information was also shared with Auckland Transport, the Community Empowerment Unit (CEU), the Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) team and Plans and Places team.

15.     Albert-Eden business sustainability development: Four businesses presented their achievements to the local board on 21 February 2019. All businesses received their individual action plan and began to implement the recommendations during Q3. The final report was made available to the local board at the end of Q3.

Supporting Local Business Growth

16.     This area is serviced by the Business and Enterprise team in the central office, located at 167B Victoria Street West. The team comprises of two Business and Innovation Advisors and administration support. The role of this team is to support the growth of Auckland’s key internationally competitive sectors and to support to provide quality jobs.

17.     A key programme in achieving this is central government’s Regional Business Partnership Network (RBPN). This is delivered by ATEED’s nine Business and Innovation Advisors (BIA), whose role is to connect local businesses to resources, experts and services in innovation, Research and Development (R&D), business growth and management.

18.     ATEED’s BIAs engage 1:1 with businesses through a discovery meeting to understand their challenges, gather key data, and provide connections / recommendations via an action plan.

19.     Where businesses qualify (meet the programme criteria and/or align to ATEED’s purpose as defined in the Statement of Intent) the advisors facilitate government support to qualifying businesses, in the form of:

·        Callaghan Innovation R&D grants (including Getting Started, project and student grants (https://www.callaghaninnovation.govt.nz/grants)

·        Callaghan Innovation subsidised innovation programmes https://www.callaghaninnovation.govt.nz/innovation-skills

·        RBPN business capability vouchers from New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE), where the business owner may be issued co-funding up to $5,000 per annum for business training via registered service providers. Voucher co-funding is prioritised to businesses accessing this service for the first time, in order to encourage more businesses to engage with experts to assist their management and growth.

·        NZTE services such as Export Essentials https://www.exportessentials.nz/workshopshttps://workshop.exportessentials.nz/register/

·        Referrals to New Zealand Business Mentors via The Chamber of Commerce.

20.     During the reporting period, ATEED Business and Innovation Advisors met with 31 businesses in the Albert-Eden Local Board area, seven for innovation advice and services and 24 for business growth and capability advice and services (two were returning clients). From these engagements:

·        Sixteen RBPN vouchers were issued to assist with business capability training

·        Sixteen connections were made to Callaghan Innovation services and programmes

·        Thirteen referrals were made to Business Mentors New Zealand

·        Twenty-two connections were made to ATEED staff and programmes

·        Nearly 150 connections were made to other businesses or programmes.

 

 

 

Other support for new businesses

21.     During the period, ATEED also ran workshops and events aimed at establishing or growing a new business and building capability. 15 people from the Albert-Eden Local Board area attended an event below:

·        Starting off Right workshop - 2

·        Business clinic – 12

·        Innovation clinic - 1.

Filming activity within the Albert-Eden Local Board area

22.     ATEED’s Screen Auckland team provides film facilitation services as part of ATEED’s support for the screen and digital sector of Auckland’s economy. Screen Auckland facilitates, processes and issues film permits for filming activity in public open space. This activity supports local businesses and employment, as well as providing a revenue stream to local boards for the use of local parks.

23.     Between 1 January and 30 June 2019, 305 film permits were issued in the Auckland region across 379 locations and 404 days of filming. Of these, 35 permits were issued in the Albert-Eden Local Board area – the third highest in the region. The Albert-Eden Local Board area’s share of film permit revenue was $4,971.01 for the period (total for all boards combined was $51,191.30).

24.     On average, 37 crew work on each shoot day. This does not reflect filming that also takes place in studios, private property or low impact activity that wouldn’t have required a permit. During the period, 81 permits were issued for TV commercials (TVC), making up 27 per cent of permits issued. A quarter of the TVC permits were destined for an international market.

25.     Some of the key film productions that were issued permits to film in the Albert-Eden Local Board area were:

·        Baby, Done (feature film)

·        Jonah, The Untold Story (TV feature)

·        Only Cloud Knows (feature film)

·        Power Rangers

·        The Legend of Baron To’a (feature Film)

·        Shortland Street

·        Westside S5 (TV series).

26.     Auckland is becoming a popular destination for international television networks to pilot an episode of a new TV series to allow them to gauge if a series will be successful. Permits were issued for locations across the Auckland region earlier this year for two new United States (US) pilots.

Young Enterprise Scheme (YES)

27.     The Auckland Chamber of Commerce has delivered the Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) since January 2018. ATEED maintains a strategic role. During the period, there were 58 schools participating in the Auckland YES programme, representing 1376 students completing the programme. Auckland Grammar, Diocesan School for Girls, Epsom Girls Grammar School, Marist College, Mt Albert Grammar School, St Cuthbert's College (Epsom) are the six schools from the Albert-Eden Local Board area participating in the YES programme.

Youth employment pathways

28.     The Go with Tourism campaign was successfully launched on 5 April 2019, attracting 170 employers and more than 700 youth by year-end. The campaign is designed to shift perceptions many young people have about careers in tourism and address the skills gap in the industry.

29.     ATEED delivered the Future Ready Summit on 26 June 2019 at the Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau. Approximately 250 employers, 40 young people and 20 speakers (eight under the age of 24). The Youth Employer Pledge partners were the primary audience. The Future Ready Auckland: Driving economic development through technology and transformation insights paper was also released, attracting strong media attention - including a lead story on Radio NZ Nine to Noon.  The research aims to better understand Auckland’s future skill needs, including future growth sectors. ATEED is currently working with pledge partners to harness the network, with a focus on south and west Auckland now that Youth Connections has transferred to The Southern Initiative.

Local Jobs and Skills Hubs

30.     ATEED is the regional partner for the network of Auckland Jobs and Skills Hubs. These multi-agency hubs support employers at developments where there is a high and sustained demand for local labour and skills development. The Auckland network includes Ara (Auckland Airport development), City Centre and Tāmaki hubs.  As at 30 June 2019, 377 people had been placed into employment via the ATEED-facilitated CBD hub, 1,914 training outcomes were delivered, and 11 apprenticeships were facilitated. About 36 per cent of those employed are Māori, against a target of 40 per cent. ATEED has developed a school engagement pilot programme with interested employers and schools aimed at engaging students with career opportunities in the construction and infrastructure sector. ATEED also provided funding to a Progressive Employment Programme for at-risk youth, supporting cadet training and developing youth-ready capability within businesses working on the City Rail Link. The City Centre hub is a training partner for this programme.

Offshore talent attraction

31.     The Auckland. We’re Hiring campaign ran from January to March 2019. The campaign is designed to attract high-skilled offshore construction and technology talent to Auckland. The campaign resulted in 2295 job applications.

Destination

Local destination management and marketing activity

32.     ATEED has included Chamberlain Park in its GEM (Golf, Equine, Marine) programme.

33.     Kingsland, Eden Park, Mt Eden, and Mt Eden Village were included in ATEED’s latest Official Auckland Visitor Guide, in partnership with the Automobile Association (AA). This is a very effective medium for out of Auckland and international visitors in planning their activities when they visit the region.

Regional destination management and marketing activity

34.     The Elemental AKL winter festival website went live on 29 April 2019. The festival ran from 1-31 July 2019 and is developed to promote sustainable tourism growth by encouraging visitation more evenly throughout the year, and dispersing visitors across the region. The programme included more than 60 free and ticketed events across the themes of light, food, entertainment, and culture. Elemental Feast went live on 4 June 2019, with 120 restaurants participating in plating up unique festival dishes using ingredients sourced from the Auckland region and inspired by the elements. Forty-seven of these events were held in the central part of the city.

35.     The Short Break campaign, aimed at leisure travellers on Australia’s eastern seaboard, ran during Q3 and Q4. There were three bursts of the campaign, focused on themes of nature, food and wine, and ultimate things to do in Auckland featuring different parts of the region including Mt Eden, Waiheke Island, the city life and coastline. As part of the campaign, ATEED hosted news.com.au and lifestyle.com.au in Auckland, showcasing the city’s unique offering that is promoted in the campaign. News.com.au has a reach of six million and will produce a dedicated feature on Auckland as well as share one article on Facebook with their 1.1m followers.

 

Delivered, funded and facilitated events

36.     During the period, ATEED delivered the 2019 Auckland Lantern Festival at the Auckland Domain. Customer satisfaction was 89 per cent, an increase of nine per cent compared to the previous year. Some key findings from the customer survey found that respondents were very positive about what the event meant for the city, with 96 per cent of respondents agreeing that Auckland Council should continue to support events like the Lantern Festival and 94 per cent saying that the event brought people from different ethnic and cultural groups together (compared to 95 per cent and 91 per cent respectively in the previous year). The Auckland Lantern Festival’s sustainability objectives through the Cultural Festivals Strategy resulted in 62 per cent of waste being diverted from landfill. This has nearly doubled in two years, with the diversion being 34 per cent in 2017.

37.     Given the need to prioritise police resourcing following the events in Christchurch on 15 March 2019, the 2019 Pasifika festival, which was due to run on 23 and 24 March 2019, was cancelled. Although the festival would have been an opportunity to bring Auckland’s communities together at a time of national mourning, given the unprecedented nature of what happened and after discussions with the New Zealand Police, it was agreed that Police must prioritise resourcing to ensure the safety of communities across the city.

38.     During the period, residents of the Albert-Eden Local Board area were also able to enjoy events funded or facilitated by ATEED across the Auckland region, including the ASB Classic, Splore Music and Arts Festival, Sculpture on the Gulf, the New Zealand Comedy Festival, the Auckland Writers Festival, the Auckland Art Fair, Warhorse, and Auckland Wine Week.

39.     A full schedule of major events is available on ATEED’s website, www.aucklandnz.com
