Member Toni van Tonder will open the meeting with a karakia.

 

Whakataka te hau ki te uru
Whakataka te hau ki te tonga
Kia mākinakina ki uta
Kia mātaratara ki tai
E hī ake ana te atakura
He tio
He huka
He hau hū
Tīhei mauri ora!

Cease o winds from the west
Cease o winds from the south
Bring calm breezes over the land
Bring calm breezes over the sea
And let the red-tipped dawn come
With a touch of frost
A sharpened air
And promise of a glorious day

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2          Apologies

 

An apology from Chairperson A Bennett has been received.

 

3          Declaration of Interest

 

Members are reminded of the need to be vigilant to stand aside from decision making when a conflict arises between their role as a member and any private or other external interest they might have.

 

The Auckland Council Code of Conduct for Elected Members (the Code) requires elected members to fully acquaint themselves with, and strictly adhere to, the provisions of Auckland Council’s Conflicts of Interest Policy.  The policy covers two classes of conflict of interest:

 

                 i.          A financial conflict of interest, which is one where a decision or act of the local board could reasonably give rise to an expectation of financial gain or loss to an elected member

 

                ii.          A non-financial conflict interest, which does not have a direct personal financial component.  It may arise, for example, from a personal relationship, or involvement with a non-profit organisation, or from conduct that indicates prejudice or predetermination.

 

The Office of the Auditor General has produced guidelines to help elected members understand the requirements of the Local Authority (Member’s Interest) Act 1968.  The guidelines discuss both types of conflicts in more detail, and provide elected members with practical examples and advice around when they may (or may not) have a conflict of interest.

 

Copies of both the Auckland Council Code of Conduct for Elected Members and the Office of the Auditor General guidelines are available for inspection by members upon request. 

 

Any questions relating to the Code or the guidelines may be directed to the Relationship Manager in the first instance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4          Confirmation of Minutes

 

That the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board:

a)         confirm the ordinary minutes of its meeting, held on Tuesday, 18 February 2020, as  true and correct.

 

 

5          Leave of Absence

 

At the close of the agenda no requests for leave of absence had been received.

 

6          Acknowledgements

 

At the close of the agenda no requests for acknowledgements had been received.

 

7          Petitions

 

At the close of the agenda no requests to present petitions had been received.

 

8          Deputations

 

Standing Order 7.7 provides for deputations. Those applying for deputations are required to give seven working days notice of subject matter and applications are approved by the Chairperson of the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board. This means that details relating to deputations can be included in the published agenda. Total speaking time per deputation is ten minutes or as resolved by the meeting.

 

At the close of the agenda no requests for deputations had been received.

 

9          Public Forum

 

A period of time (approximately 30 minutes) is set aside for members of the public to address the meeting on matters within its delegated authority. A maximum of 3 minutes per item is allowed, following which there may be questions from members.

 

At the close of the agenda no requests for public forum had been received.

 

10        Extraordinary Business

 

Section 46A(7) of the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (as amended) states:

 

“An item that is not on the agenda for a meeting may be dealt with at that meeting if-

 

(a)        The local authority by resolution so decides; and

 

(b)        The presiding member explains at the meeting, at a time when it is open to the public,-

 

(i)         The reason why the item is not on the agenda; and

 

(ii)        The reason why the discussion of the item cannot be delayed until a subsequent meeting.”

 

Section 46A(7A) of the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (as amended) states:

 

“Where an item is not on the agenda for a meeting,-

 

(a)        That item may be discussed at that meeting if-

 

(i)         That item is a minor matter relating to the general business of the local authority; and

 

(ii)        the presiding member explains at the beginning of the meeting, at a time when it is open to the public, that the item will be discussed at the meeting; but

 

(b)        no resolution, decision or recommendation may be made in respect of that item except to refer that item to a subsequent meeting of the local authority for further discussion.”

Risks and mitigations

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

File No.: CP2020/02996

 

   Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       The purpose of this report is to outline key amendments to Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Action Framework and to obtain the local board’s views.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       In February 2018, the Environment and Community Committee resolved to develop an integrated climate action plan for the Auckland region (resolution number ENV/2018/11).

3.       To meet this requirement, Auckland Council led the development of Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Action Framework, (ACAF) with extensive collaboration and engagement with mana whenua, public, private and voluntary sectors.

4.       In June 2019, the Environment and Community Committee approved a consultation draft of ACAF and associated materials.

5.       In February 2020, a memorandum was circulated to share key findings from the public consultation (Attachments A and B).

6.       To address the feedback from the consultation, this report outlines key structural changes proposed for the framework, including:

·        introducing three pillars representing the core drivers to which all actions will align (i.e. a place-based approach; emissions reduction; preparing for climate change).

·        moving from 11 key moves to eight priorities to streamline actions and address feedback.

7.       It is also proposed that the title of the document is changed from Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Action Framework to Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan to reflect feedback and the greater focus on the impact of actions against council’s climate goals and roles in delivery. In addition, this provides certainty for roles and responsibilities with regard to implementation.

8.       The proposed changes meet the requirements of a climate action plan as defined by C40 Cities.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board:

a)      provide feedback on the changes to the draft Te Taruke-a-Tawhiri: Auckland’s Climate Action Framework, including:

i)        introducing three pillars representing the core drivers for climate action (i.e. a place-based approach; emissions reduction; preparing for climate change)

ii)       moving from 11 key moves to eight priorities

iii)      changing the title from Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Action Framework to Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan.

 

Horopaki

Context

9.       In February 2018, the Environment and Community Committee resolved to develop an integrated climate action plan for the Auckland region, addressing both emissions reduction (i.e. mitigation) and preparing for the impacts of a changing climate (i.e. adaptation) (resolution number ENV/2018/11).

10.     To meet this requirement, Auckland Council led the development of Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Action Framework (ACAF) with extensive collaboration and engagement with mana whenua, public, private and voluntary sectors, reaching hundreds of Aucklanders.

11.     Local board engagement and insights were sought throughout development of the framework, including meetings and cluster workshops. A summary of feedback from local boards is available in Attachments C and D.

12.     In June 2019, the Environment and Community Committee approved the consultation draft of ACAF and associated materials.

13.     In February 2020, a memo was circulated to all local boards to share key findings from the public consultation on the draft ACAF (Attachment A and B).

14.     This report provides an overview of key proposed changes to the draft ACAF to address the feedback received through the consultation. Local board views will be reflected in the final version, which will be reported to the Environment and Climate Change Committee in May 2020.

15.     More detailed changes reported in the consultation summary are not repeated here but will be reflected in text changes in the final version.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

16.     The proposed changes to ACAF have been informed by consultation feedback received on the draft document. Some key themes that arose include:

·        Urgency and scale of action needs to be better articulated.

·        Lack of clarity on how key moves work together and how they address council’s climate goals. In addition, it was felt that there are too many.

·        Need to be clearer about roles and responsibilities with a request for more information on who is responsible for actions at each level.

·        Need for partnership working across sectors and with central government and mana whenua in particular.

·        Greater focus on equity across feedback points.

·        Need for a strong Māori voice with widespread support for working with Māori, using mātauranga Māori and Māori practices in designing and implementing climate action.

·        Need for a system shift and scale of change required, and to better articulate this with Aucklanders.

·        Need for communication and behaviour change and a request for campaigns to raise awareness across the region and enable action at an individual level.

·        Need for a significant shift in transport (of all key moves) with the identified actions supported but a need for these to be delivered at pace and scale.

17.     To address this feedback a number of key structural changes are proposed.

18.     The first of these is establish three core drivers for action – the ‘pillars’ (Attachment E).  These provide greater clarity on the goals of the framework and all actions will align to how they deliver against these goals:

·        A Tāmaki response: This pillar reflects the uniqueness of Auckland and council’s place-based response to climate change. It is informed by learning from Māori principles and practice, provides a greater focus on equity and a better definition of roles and responsibilities and collective action across governance and sectors.

·        Reducing emissions: This pillar reflects the need to provide greater clarity on council’s emissions target and the need to halve emissions by 2030 and reach net zero emissions by 2050. It improves alignment with the actions and how council will deliver and prioritise emissions reductions.

·        Preparing for climate change: This pillar enables a greater focus on how council will approach climate change adaptation and take a precautionary approach for the region and also provides greater alignment with the actions.

19.     The second structural change is that the 11 key moves are streamlined into eight priorities (Attachment F). This proposed change is to address feedback on where areas are more foundational and therefore should be embedded throughout all priority areas, or where there is confusion and overlap. Proposed changes include:

·      Key move 3: Make development and infrastructure climate compatible and Key Move 4: Transform existing buildings and places are combined into a single built environment priority area. 

·      Key move 1: Lay the foundation is embedded into the three pillars in recognition of the cross-cutting nature of the actions.

·      Key move 9: Rangatahi (Youth & Inter-generational equity) is embedded into pillar 1 to reflect the need to consider actions across the framework.

20.     Actions contained within key moves 1 and 9 will still be maintained and reflected in the updated document.

21.     Actions contained within key moves 1-11 will be carried through into priorities 1-8 (Figure 2) and updated to:

·        clarify any ambiguities that were raised in consultation 

·        remove repetition or overlapping actions

·        make additions in response to consultation feedback

·        strengthen alignment to delivery of the three pillars.

22.     Overall, the intent of the actions between the key moves 1-11 and priority areas 1-8, remain the same. Attachment G briefly summarises how the actions have changed from the consultation document to the updated priority areas.

23.     It is also proposed that the title of the document is changed from Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Action Framework to Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan to reflect feedback and the greater focus on the impact of actions against council’s climate goals and roles in delivery. In addition, this provides certainty for roles and responsibilities with regard to implementation.

24.     The proposed changes meet the requirements of a climate action plan as defined by C40 Cities.

 

 

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

25.     The changes identified in this report have been made to reflect feedback received and updated emissions modelling. As such, they will further deliver and strengthen climate action already identified.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

26.     Regular meetings and workshops took place across the council group for development of the framework.

27.     In addition, a working group was established from the outset to provide expertise from across the council group, central government and district health boards.

28.     This group has continued to provide input post-consultation and has reviewed and provided input into the proposed changes.

29.     In addition, the team has been working closely across the council group in the development of costed actions for consideration in the long-term plan. This process is running concurrently with the finalisation of the plan.

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

Local impacts and local board views

30.     The framework will have implications for all local boards.

31.     In June 2018, the Chief Sustainability Office attended workshops at 19 of the 21 local boards and obtained informal email feedback from the other two local boards to identify their main priorities related to climate change. This was followed up in September 2018 at cluster workshops to assess and test a series of ‘must haves’, which were the precursors to the actions included in the draft framework.

32.     Priorities included:

·        coastal erosion and inundation concerns

·        affordable and accessible transport

·        long-term infrastructure development to consider climate impacts

·        better stormwater management

·        climate-related education and awareness

·        building community resilience

·        for Auckland Council to lead by example.

33.     This report seeks local board formal views on proposed changes to the draft Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Action Framework outlined in this report. These views will be reflected in the final version.

34.     Local boards will be key in taking climate action at a local level. Support will be provided for local board planning and alignment with outcomes.

35.     The Chief Sustainability Office and Quality Advice Unit will implement a programme of work for the whole council family to provide guidance and training on how to embed climate action in local board plans and what to expect in climate impact statements.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

36.     Climate change impacts and associated policy and action will have significant impacts for Māori communities.

37.     A Tāmaki and climate change subject matter expert rōpū (group) was established in March 2019 which has been supporting and advising mana whenua and council on climate change issues for Māori and providing direct advice and narrative for the draft framework.

38.     A rangatahi Māori and Pasifika rōpū has also been working in partnership with council on this kaupapa to develop rangatahi-focused actions for the framework.

39.     A joint mana whenua and Māori expert task group is finalising a Tāmaki and climate change position paper, Te ora ō Tāmaki, which will be used as the bridging document to weave key anchor points into the climate action framework. 

40.     Anchor points include:

·       weaving the narrative into the framework, specifically the following sections: Climate change and Māori, Impacts on Māori, and Developing the Plan with Māori

·       a section developed by rangatahi (the youth and intergenerational equity key move)

·       a separate key move of Te puawaitanga o te tangata (resilient Māori communities).

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

41.     Actions within the framework will result in budgetary implications for organisations across the region; identifying and unlocking appropriate funding and financing streams in the future will be critical. 

42.     Taking climate action will require a range of finance and/or funding mechanisms. For instance, green bonds have been a useful tool for financing council-owned assets such as electric trains but investment in clean tech may require crowd-sourcing, grants or venture capital.

43.     To support this, a climate finance work package is underway to identify partnerships and broader funding mechanisms across actions such as bonds, grants, equity instruments and public/private partnerships.

44.     The final framework and specific Auckland Council actions being developed will need to inform ongoing long-term plan discussions to support delivery and avoid costs associated with inaction, such as increased maintenance costs and infrastructure failures through to missed opportunities to Auckland’s economy in delivering the transition. 

45.     Not all actions within council’s remit will require additional budget. Some actions can result in long-term cost avoidance, for example, electrifying fleets can reduce fuel and maintenance costs. Some actions could require existing funds to be redirected if priorities change.

46.     In addition, not all actions will require funding, for example, those related to advocacy to central government or expert input into actions led by other organisations.

47.     The costs associated with different council-specific actions will consider funding sources as described above.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

48.     No high or extreme risks have been identified with the proposed approach.

49.     Moderate risks exist, including:

·       preparing for the implications of climate change may not comply with current rules and regulations

·       potential strategic risk with non-alignment with New Zealand Government direction and policy

·       potential governance risk in shared leadership and ownership of the framework across sectors.

50.     A risk mitigation plan has been developed to address the above, including targeted engagement approaches, a legal review of the final framework, ongoing partnership with central government and establishment of clear governance structures for the implementation of the framework.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

51.     Workshops will be held in April 2020 with the Environment and Climate Change Committee and Independent Māori Statutory Board to discuss updated framework text, and the final text will be presented to the Environment and Climate Change Committee for approval in May 2020.

52.     The draft digital plan layout will be workshopped with the Environment and Climate Change Committee in June 2020 and finalised in July 2020.

Adoption of a Community Forum Meeting Schedule

File No.: CP2020/02929

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To adopt the Devonport- Takapuna Local Board community forum meeting schedule for the remainder of the 2019-2022 electoral term.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       Community forum meetings give the public the opportunity to engage directly with the local board.

3.       The Local Government Act 2002 (LGA) and the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA) have requirements regarding local board meeting schedules. Clause 19, Schedule 7 of the LGA on general provisions for meetings requires the chief executive to give notice in writing to each local board member of the time and place of meetings. Sections 46, 46(A) and 47 in Part 7 of LGOIMA require that meetings are publicly notified, agendas and reports are available at least two working days before a meeting, and that local board meetings are open to the public.

4.       Adopting a meeting schedule helps with meeting these requirements. Adopting a community forum meeting schedule also allows for a planned approach to workloads and ensures that local board members have clarity about their commitments.

5.       A draft meeting schedule for local board’s community forum for the remainder of the 2019-2022 electoral term has been developed and is shown as Attachment A for adoption by the local board.

6.       One community forum every two months is sufficient to accommodate the requests received. One extra meeting, in October 2020, is proposed to trial at an offsite location still to be agreed with the local board.

 

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board:

a)      agree to one community forum every two months, to be held at 5pm on the last or fourth Tuesday of the month, at the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board Office, 1 The Strand, Takapuna.

b)      adopt the community forum meeting schedule outlined in Attachment A of the agenda report, for the remainder 2019-2022 electoral term.

c)      agree to one additional community forum meeting on 27 October 2020 at a location to be confirmed.

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       Community forum meetings give the public the opportunity to engage directly with the local board.

8.       Presenters can speak on matters that are within the jurisdiction and allocated decision making of the local board.

9.       The public can also speak to issues like rates, planning and transportation and the local board can advocate on these issues to the governing body.

10.     Officers reports on general local board business may also be considered due to time constraints.

Format of community forum meetings

11.     The public has two options to choose from when addressing the local board at community forum meetings: public forum and deputations.

Public forum

12.     In general, 30 minutes is allocated for public forum.

13.     Each speaker must register prior to the meeting stating the topic of their presentation and will have up to five minutes to address the local board.

14.     Spaces are allocated on a first come first served basis with no more than two items on the same issue.

Deputations

15.     Deputations offer speakers up to 15 minutes, including time for questions, to present their item.

16.     Requests must be received at least seven working days prior to the meeting detailing the subject matter and general content of the presentation.

17.     All applications require the approval of the chairperson of the local board. Applications may be refused if:

·        there is insufficient time to receive the deputation

·        the matter can be referred to staff if a more appropriate process to deal with the matter exists

·        the same issue has been considered within six months of the request or is repetitious or vexatious

18.     Applications will not be received if:

·        the matter has already been considered and a course of action resolved

·        the matter is subject to a separate public hearing or quasi-judicial process

·        is outside the scope of the local board

19.     Decisions on deputations are usually limited to receiving the information and when required asking staff to provide further information. This ensures good decision-making practices are followed and that the requirements of the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 and the Local Government Act 2002 are met.

Scheduling of community forum meetings

20.     Community forum meetings are held once every two months on the last or fourth Tuesday of the month.

21.     Meetings are held at 5pm in the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board Meeting Room, 1 The Strand, Takapuna.

22.     To improve community engagement and give the public more opportunity to take part in local democratic processes it is proposed that one additional community forum meeting take place in October 2020.

23.     This additional meeting will be held off site at a venue that the community may feel more inclined to come to, particularly if the topics being discussed have a local flavour.

24.     If the local board supports this proposal staff will confirm available venues considering the following criteria

·        location and ease of access

·        size and layout

·        parking

·        acoustics and availability of technology

25.     The options should include in the first instance the Devonport Community House, Sunnynook Community Centre and the Rose Centre in Belmont.

26.     The public area familiar with these venues, that all meet accessibility requirements, and can accommodate the numbers likely to attend.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

27.     The cost of the additional community forum meeting will be met from local board LDI Opex budget.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

28.      Staff will confirm availability of the venues and ensure that the meeting is advertised appropriately to let the public know of the chamge in location and purpose of the meeting.

29.      The requests for deputations and public forum can be prioirtised to reflect the chosen venue and likely attendees

Auckland Council's Quarterly Performance Report: Devonport-Takapuna Local Board for quarter two, 2019/2020

File No.: CP2020/03026

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To provide the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board (the local board) with an integrated quarterly performance report for quarter two, 1 October to 31 December 2019.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       This report includes financial performance, progress against work programmes, project issues and any risks against the 2019/2020 work programme.

3.       The work programme is produced annually and aligns with local board plan outcomes and associated initiatives. 

4.       All operating departments with agreed work programmes have provided a quarterly update against their work programme delivery.  Most activities are reported with green (on track), amber (some risk or issues, which are being managed) or grey (cancelled, deferred or merged) status.

5.       There are several notable activity updates for quarter two, which include the:

·        staircase at Kennedy Park, Castor Bay, was reopened to the public following its extensive repair;

·        boardwalk between Quarry Lake and Lake Pupuke was completed and opened to the public;

·        accessway at Aramoana Reserve has been completed;

·        arts and culture facilities and libraries experienced strong operating performances and utilisation during this period; and

·        planning phases for a range of summer events and programmes (i.e. Out and About, Christmas Parades and school holiday programmes) are complete, and are now being delivered across the local board area during the summer period.

6.       The status of each project with their respective updates are attached to this report.

7.       Net operating expenditure at the end of the half year mark was $6 million, which represents a variance of $197,000 below budget.

8.       Operating revenue was $141,000 below budget. The second quarter result was generally on budget, as the lower revenue resulted from the annual shutdown of the leisure centre for maintenance that took place near the end of the first quarter. The member retention programme was run successfully as well as higher fitness visits compared to the same period the previous year.

9.       Overall operating expenditure of $6.9 millon was $338,000 below budget.  The lower expenditure is due to slightly lower parks maintenance costs (less mowing than was scheduled due to wet conditions) as well as budget set aside for the Korean Garden (funded from LDI) showing a variance of $148,000. 

10.     The following attachments are included to this report:

·    Attachment A: full local board work programme update for quarter two;

·    Attachment B: Takapuna Beach Business Association business case to use Hurstmere Road mitigation funds;

·    Attachment C: Memo on Lake Town Green toilet options; and

·    Attachment D: Financial performance for quarter two.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board:

a)      receive the performance report for quarter two ending 31 December 2019.

b)      support the proposal to consider additional play equipment and other assets at Gould Reserve, Takapuna.

c)      note that local board engagement and approval will be undertaken for any new assets to be installed at Gould Reserve, Takapuna.

d)      allocate $20,000 operational funding to the Takapuna Beach Business Association to provide mitigation and support programme and initiatives during the Hurstmere Road upgrade.

e)      allocate up to $10,000 locally driven initiatives (LDI) capital funding to ensure the Lake Town Green toilet is fully funded and can be delivered.

Analysis and advice

Local board work programme snapshot

13.     The work programme activities have two statuses: RAG status which measures the performance of the activity by colour (amber and red show issues and risks); and activity status which shows the stage of the activity.  These two statuses create a snapshot of the progress of the work programme activities.

14.     The graph below identifies work programme activity by RAG status (red, amber, green and grey).  It shows the percentage of work programme activities that are on track (green), in progress but with issues that are being managed (amber), activities that have significant issues (red), and activities that have been cancelled/deferred / merged (grey).

 

Key activity updates from quarter two

Key local board plan projects

15.     The local board’s 2019/2020 work programme features several initiatives and priorities that were identified during the development of the local board plan.  The following sections outline the key local board plan initiatives and their progress against the 2019/2020 work programme.

North-West Wildlink Assistance Programme (ID 505)

The funding agreement for Restoring Takarunga Hauraki has been signed and paid.  The group has created a sub-committee dedicated to refining their strategic programme goals and prioritising next year’s work.  Weekly working bees have been established in a number of priority reserves including Achilles and Jutland Reserves.

Work with local schools around restoration of their sites is ongoing, with most of the activity taking place at Bayswater, Belmont, Stanley Bay and Devonport schools.

The funding agreement has been paid for the North Shore Songbird project.  Recruitment of a coordinator is complete with the successful candidate starting during quarter two.  The coordinator has been in discussions with council staff around planning their work programme and accessing additional support through the natural environment targeted rate fund. 

Support a community-led streamside restoration, weeding and planting programmes

Ecological volunteers and environmental programme (ID 740)

Two volunteer days and 400 hours have been undertaken with the Limited Service Volunteer Group Jutland Reserve, who focus on weed control, planting and mulching.

Four beach clean-ups organised with the new Takapuna North/Birdsong Northshore Coordinator at Takapuna, Hauraki, Cheltenham and Narrow Neck beaches.

Outcome four: Our communities are empowered, engaged and inclusive

18.     The Community Facilities, Community Services (Parks, Sport and Recreation, Libraries, Arts, Community and Events) work programmes are responsible for delivering the initiatives included in local board plan outcome four.  Updates on key local board plan initiatives and projects that align to outcome four is listed below:

Project name and ID

Q2 update

Local board plan initiative

Community-led placemaking: Takapuna North Community Trust (ID 48)

Quarter two highlights included:

·      Active Aging expo held on 8 November 2019, with over 30 stalls from a range of senior’s activity and volunteer groups.

·      The Sunnynook Christmas bike ride event took place on 12 December 2019.

·      Shoalhaven apartment dwellers were supported to hold a residents Christmas party. They are also being assisted to hold a ‘Meet the Neighbours’ event for their block.

Our communities are empowered to deliver placemaking projects

Operational grant to The Pumphouse (ID 517)

In quarter two, the Pumphouse delivered 43 programmes for 19,500 participants and attendees.

Highlights included the premiere of Mama Long Fin, a Te Reo puppet show by local primary school students, Tadpole productions star-studded play Heroes, a Chinese music concert and a Korean dance performance.

Continue to support the delivery of place-shaping and activation of spaces to promote arts, culture and heritage

Operational grant to The Lake House (ID 523)

In quarter two, Lake House Arts delivered 139 programmes to 16,016 participants, attendees and visitors. Exhibitions included the Members Merit Awards with pre-launch celebrations for founding members, Studio Printmakers Heritage Exhibition and the Friday Painter for Artweek with an artist talk and Podcast. Lib Steward exhibited Klimpt-inspired fabric art.

Continue to support the delivery of place-shaping and activation of spaces to promote arts, culture and heritage

Takapuna Pool and Leisure Centre: Operations (ID 380)

Quarter two saw the facility reopen following a four-week maintenance shutdown.

Swim school enrolments were slightly down for term four, finishing at 670 or 78% capacity. This is likely the effect of losing three weeks of lessons at the end of term three due to the maintenance closure. The facility ran a member retention programme 'Workout to win', with nearly three times as many entries as the promotion held in July/August.

There was a 10 percent increase in fitness visits compared to the same period last year. New memberships sales are equal to the same period as last year.

Work with our community houses, recreational facilities and leaseholders to ensure they are providing programming and initiatives that are fit-for-purpose

Ethnic and diverse communities (ID 49)

In quarter two, staff supported Immigration NZ with the hosting of a successful Local Settlement Network meeting for the North Metro region, and a presentation from the Tauranga Council Community Development Advisor on the implementation of their Welcoming Communities programme. A proposal for establishing local Newcomer Networks in the DTLB area has been received and agreed upon, with this work commencing in Q3.

Support greater integration and inclusiveness of ethnic communities and older people by identifying service gaps across our area

Project

Update

Aramoana Reserve - renew access way (ID 2150)

Project completed in November 2019.

Kennedy Park - remedial work to reinstate staircase (ID 3339)

The project has been completed and the staircase was reopened to the public on 21 December.

Lake Pupuke - renew and develop south walkways and foreshore structure (ID 3324)

Current status: The walkway works are complete and open to the public. Building consent for the platform changes has been approved and pricing of these works is underway. Next steps: Complete works and handover to operations.

Bayswater Park – renew play spaces (ID 2159)

Current status: Staff will request pricing for the shade sails and tree planting during January 2020.

Activities with issues impacting project delivery

21.     The following table provides a snapshot of work programme projects are experiencing issues which are impacting project delivery:

Project

Update

Proposed next steps

Taha Māori - Māori Responsiveness: increasing engagement with mana whenua (ID 51)

Despite many approaches, both internally and externally, to identify representatives for Ngati Paoa a suitable connection has not yet been established.

Staff continue to explore ways to engage with mana whenua for involvement in developing the story board project at Te Rahopara Pa site, Castor Bay, and provide input for material to feature on the iwi panels. Material has been compiled for the World War II panels, as part of the installation.

Staff advise that since reporting this update, they have spoken to an iwi representative to progress the project. .

Activation of Community Places (ID 1041)

The Devonport Community House have not yet signed their agreement with council however an initial payment has been made to the centre while staff continue to work through the issues.

Staff are working closely with committee members to simplify specific clauses in the contract and aim to have the agreement signed during Q3.

Staff will continue to work with the centre to discuss and work through their issues and ensure the funding agreement is signed and paid.

Becroft Park - renew sports fields 2 & 3 (ID 2001)

Current status: Delivery deferred until summer of 2020/2021 due to the impact on cricket season and four other sports field renewal projects in the area. Next steps: Tender in February 2020 for the delivery in the following summer season.

None.  The project will proceed following the summer sports season.

Barry's Point Reserve – development (ID 2056)

Current status: This project is linked to Barry's Point Reserve - develop Korean Gardens (SP ID 3239). Development of the wider reserve area is on hold. 

Next steps: No further work is planned on the wider development of the reserve in the near future.  Funding has been allocated in financial year 2022.

This project budget is derived from growth funding and therefore the Governing Body is the decision-maker on the quantum and timing. 

The local board will need to advocate to the Governing Body should they want growth funding to be considered at the reserve.

Lake Pupuke - renew northern parks foreshore structures (ID 2099)

On hold due to lake levels.  Monitoring of lake levels is ongoing. The project will be revisited in 2021.

None.  No works can commence until lake levels have decreased.

Claystore Heritage building - renew building structure & electricals (ID 2155)

Current status: A comprehensive building assessment is underway to understand the extent of renewal works required additional to the seismic works.

Next steps: Assess scope options, including cost estimates and discuss with the local board at a workshop in March 2020.

None.  Proposed next steps is clearly outlined in the update.

139 Beach Road, Castor Bay - Old Barracks - repurpose for community space (ID 2202)

Initial cost estimations have highlighted the requirement for major remedial work and associated costs to the asset. This asset has failed its initial seismic assessment. Current status: Heritage architect has been engaged to scope remedial work and costs.

That this project and the outcomes are discussed at a local board workshop as soon as practicable.

 

New opportunities arising from the 2019/2020 work programme

22.     Local Board Services and Community Facilities staff have been approached by Mr. and Mrs. Reeve and their representatives about the potential for additional play equipment and other assets being installed at Gould Reserve, Takapuna.  The Reeve’s are local philanthropists who funded and drove the upgrade of the playground at Gould Reserve in 2016.

23.     Staff and the Reeve’s informally met in December 2019, where following matters were raised and agreed:

·    the renewal of the toilet block at Gould Reserve will commence after Easter 2020, and this provides an opportunity to leverage off the works that will be undertaken in the area at the time;

·    the Reeve’s have expressed interest to install equipment which has a focus on accessible play for all abilities, including a roll-out beach mat and other assets such as BBQs and additional seating.  The Reeve’s have also indicated that they are willing to fund these assets themselves;

·    staff support the proposed addition of accessible play space equipment at Gould Reserve, as it is considered a gap in service provision in the area; and

·    all development and additional assets should be informed by the local board’s Takapuna Beach South Concept Plan, the guiding document for the reserve and wider area.

24.     The local board is requested to indicate their initial support to the proposal in principle, so that it provides staff with a mandate to continue discussions with the Reeve’s and their representatives. 

25.     Should the local board support the proposal, the Reeve’s and their representatives will prepare a concept design for the area, then council staff can incorporate it into the detailed design for the toilet block renewal.  It is important to note that concept and detailed planning for the additional assets will be undertaken and presented to the local board for input and approval.

Financial implications

Allocation of Hurstmere Road mitigation funds

26.     As part of the 2019/2020 ATEED local economic development work programme, the local board allocated $20,000 operational funding to provide mitigation and support during the Hurstmere Road upgrade (the upgrade).

27.     The upgrade is set to commence in quarter three, and this provides the opportunity for the local board to partner with an external provider to undertake a range of programmes, initiatives and signage.  This will ensure businesses in Takapuna are supported during the construction period, and shoppers continue to come to the area.

28.     Staff have undertaken an assessment and recommend that the Takapuna Beach Business Association (the TBBA) are the ideal organisation to make best use of the available funds.  The TBBA has already been working closely with council staff responsible for the upgrade on a range of mitigation and support options, and the funds will only further enhance their support during the construction period.

29.     The TBBA propose to use the funding towards a marketing campaign around ‘Support Your Local”.  The campaign aims to:

·    introduce owners, managers and workers to the public through advertising, making a personal connection between the customer and the business. This will create buy-in from the consumer, who will feel that they are helping a person by purchasing from that business.

·    highlight the different types of businesses that are available in Takapuna, creating a feeling of “everything is available” within the Takapuna area. Consumers will feel that they can come straight to Takapuna and satisfy all their shopping, dining and service needs in one location.

·    local consumers will be highlighted showing their support of different businesses. This will create a feeling of other people supporting their local businesses and will therefore draw in further support from the local community. If available, local high-profile members of society will be profiled to show their support of Takapuna Businesses.

·    highlight different businesses achievements or specialities as part of the campaign, creating a sense of pride among local consumers and drive to visit the business.

·    incentivise, create a sense of pride and ownership over their purchase decisions by giving away free good and services and distributing Takapuna Beach branded merchandise.

30.     Staff recommend the local board allocate $20,000 in locally driven initiative (LDI) operational funding to the TBBA so that they can implement their “Support Your Local” campaign to provide mitigation and support during the upgrade.

31.     Please refer to Attachment B which provides a business case from the TBBA on using the funds.

Toilet at Lake Town Green, Hauraki

32.     At its 21 May 2019 business meeting, the local board allocated $260,000 from its locally driven initiative (LDI) capital fund for the planning and delivery of a new toilet at Lake Town Green, Hauraki.

33.     Following this decision, staff have undertaken further work and costings and advise the total udget required to complete the project is $264,000.  As a result, there is a $4,000 shortfall to deliver the project. 

34.     Staff recommend the local board allocate up to $10,000 from its locally driven initiative (LDI) capital fund to ensure the project is fully funded, can be delivered and any contingencies can be met.

35.     Please refer to Attachment C which provides an overview of options for a toilet at Lake Town Green, and their respective costings.

Financial performance

36.     Net operating expenditure at the end of the half year mark was $6.0 million, which represents a variance of $197,000 below budget.

37.     Operating revenue was $141,000 below budget.  The second quarter result was generally on budget, however the lower revenue resulted from the annual shutdown of the leisure centre for maintenance that took place near the end of the first quarter.  The member retention programme was run successfully as well as higher fitness visits compared to the same period the previous year.

38.     Overall operating expenditure of $6.9 million was $338,000 below budget.  The lower expenditure is due to slightly lower parks maintenance costs (less mowing than was scheduled due to wet conditions) as well as budget set aside for the Korean Garden (funded from LDI) showing a variance of $148,000. The Korean Garden project is currently progressing through the licence to occupy process which will be finalised in February.

39.     The locally driven initiatives (LDI) budget has been credited with $8,000 for filming revenue that was earned from activities undertaken in local parks / reserves. The budget can be allocated to any discretionary activity the board wishes to support, including the community grants budget.

40.     The board has allocated $138,000 from its community grants budget which leaves the board with $145,000 for the remainder of the year.

41.     There are no risks to note at the end of the period.

42.     Please refer to Attachment D for the financial performance summary for quarter two.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

43.     Receiving performance monitoring reports will not result in any identifiable changes to greenhouse gas emissions.

44.     Work programmes were approved in June 2019 and delivery is already underway. Should significant changes to any projects be required, climate impacts will be assessed as part of the relevant reporting requirements.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Local impacts and local board views

46.     This report informs the local board of the performance for the quarter ending 31 December 2019.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

47.     The local board’s work programme contains a number of projects which provide direct outcomes for Māori, these include:

·    the local board’s grants programme provides a range of activities, events and programmes for both Māori community groups and organisations, and wider community groups who propose and promote broader Māori outcomes;

·    providing programmes and activities at community houses that meet the needs of young Māori in the local board area; and

·    as part of delivering the Local Maori Responsiveness Action Plan (ID 686), presentations have been delivered to provide a better understanding of Matariki, tikanga and other Maori protocols.

Local Board feedback to the Independent Council-Controlled Organisations Review

File No.: CP2020/02997

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To provide an opportunity for local boards to provide formal feedback on the Council-Controlled Organisations (CCO) Review to the Independent Panel.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Governing Body approved the Terms of Reference for an Independent Panel to undertake a review of substantive CCOs at its meeting on 26 November 2019 [GB/2019/127].

3.       The review covers Auckland Transport, Auckland Tourism Events and Economic Development, Panuku Development Auckland, Regional Facilities Auckland and Watercare.  The overall objectives are to examine:

·   whether CCOs are an effective and efficient model for delivering services to the council and Aucklanders, and

·   whether the CCO decision-making model provides sufficient political oversight, public transparency and accountability.

4.       The review asks the Independent Panel to examine three areas: the CCO model and its accompanying roles and responsibilities; the accountability of CCOs; and CCO culture.

5.       The Independent Panel is seeking the views of local boards on these areas.

6.       Local boards are advised that their views are requested by the Independent Panel by 3 April 2020.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board:

a)      provide formal feedback on the Council-Controlled Organisations Review to the Independent Panel.

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       The Governing Body approved the CCO review Terms of Reference on 26 November 2019 [GB/2019/127]. The Independent Panel was appointed by the Governing Body on 12 December 2019 and is comprised of Miriam Dean, Doug Martin and Leigh Auton. Miriam Dean has been appointed panel chair [GB/2019/149].

8.       Briefings on the CCO Review were provided to local board chairs in December 2019 by staff and in February 2020 by panel member Leigh Auton.  The panel wrote to local board chairs in February asking for advice on what constitutes good engagement between CCOs and local boards.  

9.       Monthly updates on the review are reported to the CCO Oversight Committee and circulated to all local boards.

10.     The Independent Panel is seeking comprehensive engagement to obtain a range of views about the issues forming the subject of the review (Attachment A).  Community engagement on the review is occurring alongside the Annual Budget 2020/2021 in February/March 2020. An engagement document has been developed and a summary document has been translated into five languages and a New Zealand Sign Language video. A webpage[1] provides information on the review, including stakeholder updates, relevant documents (including the Terms of Reference) and a contact for further information.

11.     All feedback on the CCO Review will be provided to the Independent Panel.  The Panel will report on the key issues and community and stakeholder feedback in May and will provide a final report and recommendations in July 2020.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

12.     To identify the scope of their work, the Independent Panel has distilled the essence of the review terms into a list of issues, that forms the basis of the engagement and eventual report. The list and prompts, at Attachment A, provide a structure for local boards to give feedback.

13.     The three key areas of focus set out in the list of issues are:

Issue

Area of Focus

CCO model, roles and responsibilities

The essential question here is whether the CCO model delivers council services with the maximum of operational efficiency, transparency and accountability, or whether there are better ways to deliver such services

CCO accountability

Here the key question is whether the council’s current approach to holding CCOs to account on behalf of Aucklanders could be improved

CCO culture

The central issue here is whether CCOs need to improve how they consult, engage with and respond to the wider community and council

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

14.     Local boards have an opportunity to consider suggestions that might improve climate change outcomes/mitigation in their feedback on the CCO Review.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

15.     The Independent Panel is engaging across the council group on the review, including:

·   the chair of the independent panel wrote introducing the panel and the review objectives to all CCO chairs and chief executives, councillors, local board chairs, chief executive of IMSB and the co-chairs of the Mana Whenua Kaitiaki Forum on 20 December 2019

·   the panel met briefly with the CCO chief executives and chairs on 28 January 2020 to discuss the proposed review process and CCO engagement. Each CCO was asked to provide the panel with key stakeholders/customers

·   individual meetings have taken place with CCO chief executives and board chairs over February and March 2020, and the panel is meeting with CCO stakeholders.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The governance forward work calendar was introduced in 2016 as part of Auckland Council’s quality advice programme. The calendar aims to support local boards’ governance role by:

·    ensuring advice on meeting agendas is driven by the local board priorities

·    clarifying what advice is expected and when

·    clarifying the rationale for reports.

3.       The calendar also aims to provide guidance to staff supporting local boards and greater transparency for the public. The calendar is updated monthly, reported to local board business meetings, and distributed to council staff.

4.       The March 2020 governance forward work calendar for the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board is provided as Attachment A.
