TERMS OF REFERENCE

(Excerpt – full terms of reference available as a separate document)

 

The terms of reference set out the purpose, role and protocols of the Panel.

Panel members abide by the Code of Conduct for members of Auckland Council advisory

panels.

 

Purpose

As one of council’s engagement mechanisms with diverse communities, the demographic

advisory panels provide advice to the governing body and council staff within the remit of the

Auckland Plan on the following areas:

·         Auckland Council’s regional policies, plans and strategies

·         Regional and strategic matters including those that Council-Controlled Organisations deal with any matter of particular interest or concern to diverse communities.

 

Outcomes

The panel’s advice will contribute to improving the outcomes of diverse communities and

social cohesion as set out in the Auckland Plan. The panel will advise through their agreed

strategic agenda and detailed work programme.

 

Strategic agenda and work programme

The panel must develop a work programme and set a strategic agenda for the term. The

agendas should be focused and integrated across the panels for collaborative input into

shared agendas, particularly on the Auckland Plan, the Long-term Plan and annual plans.

The panel should advise on council’s organisational strategies relevant to diverse

communities.

The governing body and council staff should work with the panel for the development of their

strategic agendas and work programme. An appropriate committee will approve the panel’s

work programme and any subsequent major changes to it.

 

Submissions

The panel must not make formal submissions to Auckland Council on council strategies,

policies and plans, for example, the annual plan.

In its advisory role to the council, the panel may have input to submissions made by the

council to external organisations but do not make independent submissions, except as

agreed with the council.

This does not prevent individual members being party to submissions outside their role as

panel members.

 

Review

The form and functioning of the panels may be reviewed prior to or after, the end of the

panel’s term in September 2019.

Ngā Pōti ā-Taiohi – Youth Voting Update

File No.: CP2019/14626

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.         To provide an overview of our Auckland Council’s civics education programme: Ngā Pōti ā-Taiohi – Youth Voting and seek input from the Youth Advisory Panel regarding our candidate evening and school volunteer initiatives.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.         Local Government New Zealand (LGNZ) delivers a youth voting programme in parallel with local government elections.

3.         As Auckland Council is so large and has a unique governance structure, the council opts to run an Auckland specific version. Auckland Council has run a bespoke youth voting programme since for several election cycles.

4.         The Tāmaki Makaurau, Ngā Pōti ā-Taiohi – Youth Voting Programme gives young people aged 11-15 years (school years 7-10) the opportunity to experience an election first-hand. Students learn about Auckland Council, why voting is important and how voting works. At the end of the programme, they vote for real candidates on real issues. They then see how their results compare to the official election results. More information on the programme is available in the registration pack for teachers appended as Attachment A to this report.

5.         For the 2019 local government election, Auckland Council made several changes to our resource to reflect feedback from teachers such as the need for the resource to be digital and more flexible for the diverse needs of learners. Council has also decided to include an initiative to recognise the position of influence schools have within their community by supporting a group of students from a school in each ward to organise their own candidate evenings to ensure youth voices and perspectives are heard during the election.

6.         School visits will run as they have done in previous versions of the programme with council staff providing real life examples of the range of work council delivers for Tāmaki Makaurau.

Consideration

7.         This project has a very specific youth focus. Council’s hope is that we will provide students with information and opportunity that highlights the important of civic participation and increase the profile of local government elections to youth and their communities alike.

8.         These school visits and candidate evenings will occur through August and September 2019.

9.         Youth Advisory Panel members would be a welcome inclusion to our school visits and candidate evenings. Both initiatives could provide a platform for current members to talk about the work the Youth Advisory Panel does and promote education of local government processes.

Next steps

10.      For the Youth Advisory Panel to provide input and feedback on the school visits or candidate evenings as part of the Ngā Pōti ā-Taiohi – Youth Voting Programme.

11.      For the Youth Advisory Panel to nominate panel members to be involved in the schools visits and candidate evenings.

 

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation

That the Youth Advisory Panel:

a)      note Ngā Pōti ā-Taiohi – Youth Voting programme as part of Auckland Council’s civics education programme and provide feedback on the programme and confirm participation in school visits or candidate evenings, for youth voting.

City Centre Masterplan Refresh

File No.: CP2019/14577

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To update the Youth Advisory Panel on:

·      approval by Planning Committee of the consultation and engagement plan for refreshing the Auckland City Centre Masterplan (CCMP),

·      the shape of the new CCMP, and

·      forthcoming public engagement.

2.       To invite the Youth Advisory Panel to provide feedback on the CCMP refresh in August and September 2019.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

3.       Previous presentations have informed the Youth Advisory Panel on the development of the Auckland City Centre Masterplan refresh. This is centred on a new digital masterplan structure (incorporating the Waterfront Plan) and the emerging concepts of Māori Outcomes, Grafton Gully Boulevard and Access for Everyone (A4E).

4.       On 8 April 2019, a presentation on aspects of the City Centre Master Plan was given at a closed workshop of the Youth Advisory Panel. This provided an opportunity for the panel to learn about the masterplan refresh and proposed content. The material was received positively, and no further questions were received. This support informed the development of the City Centre Masterplan material.

5.       Feedback from this workshop and engagement with other organisations has shaped the approach to the masterplan refresh which was considered by Auckland Council’s Planning Committee on 2 July 2019. The Planning Committee approved the recommended plan refresh, with consultation to commence in July 2019 (PLA/2019/62).

6.       The first stage of consultation is targeted engagement with stakeholders, partners and subject matter experts such as the Youth Advisory Panel. This memo is an opportunity for the panel to understand the forthcoming city centre masterplan structure and to inform subsequent feedback. A summary of refreshed plan content is attached to this memo for information and to inform feedback.  

7.       Public consultation will take place between mid-August and late September 2019. The Panel is invited to provide feedback on the CCMP refresh. All relevant information and documentation will be available online at https://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/have-your-say.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendations

a)      note the proposed City Centre Masterplan structure.

b)      note the proposed approach to City Centre Masterplan refresh engagement.

Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland's Climate Action Framework

File No.: CP2019/14578

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To provide an overview of the draft Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Action Framework for feedback from the Youth Advisory Panel on the consultation approach with youth representative networks.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       In February 2018, the Environment and Community Committee approved the development of an integrated climate change action plan, addressing both the rising emissions in the region and the impacts of our changing climate (ENV/2018/11).  The new plan will, in time, replace the Low Carbon Auckland Plan of 2014.

3.       In November 2018, The Environment and Community Committee endorsed Auckland’s reapplication for membership to the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, including the requirement to develop a climate plan consistent with the Paris Agreement aspiration of 1.5°C maximum temperature rise. 

4.       Since February 2018, Auckland Council has led the development of Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Action Framework, with cross-sector collaboration.  This framework addresses emissions reduction for the region and impacts of our changing climate. The consultation summary of the Auckland Climate Action Framework is Attachment A and the full document is Attachment B

5.       The draft framework was developed through strong collaboration with Mana Whenua, and with extensive consultation and evidence building including Climate Change Risk Assessments (CCRAs), emissions modelling and analysis of other leading cities’ climate action plans. The draft climate action framework has 11 key moves which speak to Auckland’s needs and address the future challenges it will face.

6.       The framework relies on collaboration between key stakeholders such as businesses, institutions, industry and community groups to work together to take action to reach our climate targets.

Consideration

7.       Climate change impacts, such as increased flooding, sea level rise, drought and temperature rise, will impact different communities to varying degrees, and it is critical that everyone is adequately supported and prepared for future climate change challenges. Socio-economic inequality is interwoven with cultural difference and diversity in Auckland, and it is likely climate change will exacerbate many of the socio-economic differences in communities. This highlights the need to address the future challenges of climate change and ensure communities and individuals are resilient.

8.       The severity of impacts in the future is directly influenced by on-going emissions and so the framework also sets a path towards net zero emissions by 2050.  

9.       The 11 key moves in the framework address both climate mitigation and adaptation with an aim to deliver the benefits fairly, focussing on protecting vulnerable communities. The key moves address a range of areas, from a resilient and healthy food supply to equitable mobility options. It is critical that the transition to a net zero future is just and equitable, and it is important that the framework enables and supports all communities and sectors.

Next Steps

10.     Public consultation for the Auckland Climate Action Framework is open from the 17 July until the 6 of September 2019.

11.     After public consultation, the feedback will be compiled and presented back to the governing body.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendations

That the Youth Advisory Panel:

a)      provide feedback on the Auckland Climate Action Framework.

b)      provide recommendations on how we can best reach out to youth representative networks during public consultation.
