Context

7.       The local board allocates grants to groups and organisations delivering projects, activities and services that benefit Aucklanders and contribute to the vision of being a world class city.

8.       The Auckland Council Community Grants Policy supports each local board to adopt a grants programme. The local board grants programme sets out:

·    local board priorities

·    lower priorities for funding

·    exclusions

·    grant types, the number of grant rounds and when these will open and close

·    any additional accountability requirements.

9.       The Manurewa Local Board adopted its grants programme for 2020/2021 on 21 May 2020 (MR/2020/57) and will operate four local grant rounds this financial year. 

10.     The community grant programmes have been extensively advertised through the council grants webpage, local board webpages, local board e-newsletters, Facebook pages, council publications, radio, and community networks.

11.     The Manurewa Local Board set a total community grants budget of $194,817 for the 2020/2021 financial year.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

12.     The aim of the local board grant programme is to deliver projects and activities which align with the outcomes identified in the local board plan. All applications have been assessed utilising the Community Grants Policy and the local board grant programme criteria. The eligibility of each application is identified in the report recommendations.


 

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

13.     The local board grants programme aims to respond to Auckland Council’s commitment to address climate change by providing grants to individuals and groups for projects that support and enable community climate action. Community climate action involves reducing or responding to climate change by local residents in a locally relevant way. Local board grants can contribute to expanding climate action by supporting projects that reduce carbon emissions and increase community resilience to climate impacts. Examples of projects include local food production and food waste reduction; increasing access to single-occupancy transport options, home energy efficiency and community renewable energy generation; local tree planting and streamside revegetation; and educating about sustainable lifestyle choices that reduce carbon footprints.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

14.     Based on the main focus of an application, a subject matter expert from the relevant department will provide input and advice. The main focus of an application is identified as arts, community, events, sport and recreation, environment or heritage.

15.     The grants programme has no identified impacts on council-controlled organisations and therefore their views are not required.

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

Local impacts and local board views

16.     Local boards are responsible for the decision-making and allocation of local board community grants. The Manurewa Local Board is required to fund, part-fund or decline these grant applications against the local board priorities identified in the local board grant programme.

17.     Staff will provide feedback to unsuccessful grant applicants about why they have been declined to increase their chances of success next time.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

18.     The local board grants programme aims to respond to Auckland Council’s commitment to improving Māori wellbeing by providing grants to individuals and groups who deliver positive outcomes for Māori. Auckland Council’s Ngā Mātārae department has provided input and support towards the development of the community grant processes.

19.     Eleven applicants indicated their projects will aim to meet Maori outcomes.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

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

21.     The Manurewa Local Board has set a total community grants budget of 194,817 for the 2020/2021 financial year.

22.     In Manurewa Local Board Grant Round One 2020/2021, a total of $49,214 was allocated and in round two, $60,675.43 was allocated, leaving a total of $84,927.57 for the two remaining grant rounds.

23.     In Manurewa Local Board Grant Round Three 2020/2021, a total of 17 local grant applications were received, requesting a total amount of $121,321.36.

24.     Relevant staff from Auckland Council’s Finance Department have been fully involved in the development of all local board work programmes, including financial information in this report, and have not identified any additional financial implications.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

25.     The allocation of grants occurs within the guidelines and criteria of the Community Grants Policy and the local board grants programme. The assessment process has identified a low risk associated with funding the applications in this round.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

Manurewa Urban Ngahere (Forest) Analysis Report 2020

File No.: CP2021/02516

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek adoption of the Manurewa Urban Forest (Ngahere) Analysis Report 2020 (report) - Attachment A).

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The regional Te Rautaki Ngahere ā-Tāone o Tāmaki Makaurau (strategy) responds to changes in ngahere canopy cover and potential climate change impacts.

3.       The strategy’s target is to increase tree canopy cover across all local board areas in Tāmaki Makaurau to 30 per cent by 2050. 

4.       The Manurewa Local Board provided funding in 2019/2020 to undertake the ‘Knowing’ phase of the Urban Ngahere (Forest) programme.

5.       The ‘Knowing’ phase has involved detailed analysis of the urban tree cover using a variety of data sources from the council, Statistics NZ, and other local government sources.

6.       Analysis of urban tree cover and comparison with the overall extents from 2013 and 2018 was undertaken, alongside population statistics and current growth projections outlined in the Auckland Plan. 

7.       The report has established that urban tree coverage in the local board area is approximately 13 per cent of the overall land area in 2018. This is a 1 per cent increase from 2013.

8.       The total tree cover is low when compared to the averages across the region and 3 per cent below the minimum target of 15 per cent that has been set by council in the strategy.

9.       To continue increasing canopy cover in the long term a concerted effort will be required to plant new specimen trees every year.

10.     Staff are developing a long-term action plan to direct tree planting to increase canopy cover and the plan will be brought to the local board in quarter four of 2020/2021.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Manurewa Manurewa Local Board:

a)      adopt the Manurewa Urban Ngahere Analysis Report (Attachment A)

b)      delegate authority to the General Manager, Parks, Sport and Recreation, to make minor changes and amendments to the text and design of the Manurewa Local Board Urban Ngahere (Forest) Analysis Report that are required before public release.

 

Horopaki

Context

11.     In 2017 staff developed a regional tree strategy to address concerns around tree cover changes resulting from: development pressures, disease threats, climate change, and changes to tree protection rules.

12.     The development of the strategy included workshops and consultation with elected members, mana whenua, and internal stakeholders.

13.     The work resulted in the regional Te Rautaki Ngahere ā-Tāone o Tāmaki Makaurau / Urban Ngahere (Forest) Strategy, which was adopted by the Environment and Community Committee in February 2018 (ENV/2018/12).

14.     Currently the Auckland region has an average tree canopy cover of 18 per cent.

15.     The strategy sets targets that encourages all local boards to have a minimum tree canopy cover of at least 15 per cent, and on a regional scale the target is set at 30 per cent by 2050, in line with the Auckland Plan.

16.     The strategy recommends implementation and analysis of the tree cover at the local level.

17.     Local boards were offered the opportunity to invest in area specific Urban Ngahere programmes of work. 

18.     The local board Urban Ngahere programme has three phases: ‘Knowing’, ‘Growing’ and ‘Protecting’:

19.     The ‘Knowing’ phase involves establishing an accurate current state analysis report with recommendations for future actions.

20.     The ‘Growing’ phase involves a number of activities including annual tree plantings to address areas of low tree cover, including the development of a long-term action plan.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

21.     The analysis report highlights the overall tree canopy coverage at 13 per cent for the local board area.

The report provides a number of key statistics:

·    the local board area has an average tree canopy cover of 13 per cent which equates to a net 1 per cent increase compared to the 2013 figure of 12 per cent

·    26 per cent of parks and open space has tree canopy cover

·    12 per cent of other public land has tree canopy cover (schools, hospital)

·    9 per cent of local roads have tree canopy cover, which is low

·    52 per cent of urban tree cover exists on private land.

22.     Section 8 of the analysis report sets out key focus areas for increasing the tree canopy coverage across the local board area. These are intended to help provide long-term lasting benefits for local communities.

23.     Funding for a concerted multi-year programme of tree planting on public land in parks, open space areas and within the road corridor is necessary to help increase overall tree numbers in the local board area. A commitment to fund will enable new tree plantings, which will in the long-term help to increase overall tree canopy coverage.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

24.     Implementation of the strategy is an example of an integrated approach to help sequester emissions, build resilience longer term and enable adaptation to the impacts of climate change to meet council’s climate goals.

25.     The strategy is identified as a key action in Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri - Auckland’s Climate Plan 2020.

26.     Increasing stock of trees and vegetation in Tāmaki Makaurau will increase carbon sequestration and contribute towards reducing net greenhouse gas emissions.

27.     Increasing trees and vegetation also provides various natural functions that assist with adaptation to the climate change impacts for humans and other species, such as:

·        providing a shading and cooling effect to counter rising temperatures

·        slowing and reducing stormwater runoff to assist in managing increased rainfall events

·        improve air quality by trapping particulates and filtering vehicle pollutants

·        providing additional habitat for indigenous species to occupy, enhancing their resilience to climate change impacts.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

28.     Parks, Sport and Recreation (PSR) has collaborated with Community Facilities to help inform where the current maintenance and renewal programme for trees can help to improve the overall health, diversity and extent of the tree canopy cover.

29.     PSR will help inform the Community Facilities renewals program to ensure an ongoing programme of tree renewal occurs to replace poor and ailing stock and to replant where dead, dying, or diseased trees are removed. 

30.     PSR and Community Facilities will collaboratively manage the delivery of the new tree plantings in the 2021-2022 planting seasons.

31.     PSR will investigate the opportunities for a wider collaborative approach across the council family to grow more trees in local communities and schools for local use.

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

Local impacts and local board views

32.     The Manurewa Local Board Plan 2020 supports the strategy:

·        Outcome six: Our natural environment is valued, protected and enhanced

Initiative: Fund the Urban Ngahere (Forest) Strategy to increase tree canopy and enhance biodiversity.

33.     New tree plantings will benefit the Manurewa community by providing increased opportunities for access to nature and providing shade in the local park network.

34.     The local board has provided direction and support for the project at workshops in March and September 2020 to complete the ‘Knowing’ phase.

35.     The local board requested a wider collaborative programme be considered with other areas of council including the Enviro-schools programme as part of the next steps for the ngahere ‘Growing’ work.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

36.     The urban ngahere is important to mana whenua and the use of native trees will take place as the first choice in alignment with the strategy.

37.     Mana whenua will be engaged to support tree planting preparation and provide a cultural narrative in the choice of species for the local areas.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

38.     In 2019/2020, the local board allocated $15,000 of LDI funding through the local board work programme for the ‘Knowing’ phase.

39.     Due to COVID-19 and resulting delays to the ‘Knowing’ phase, $8,300 was carried forward to 2020/2021, to complete the analysis report and begin the ‘Growing’ phase.

40.     The local board has allocated $15,000 of LDI funding in the 2020/2021 for development of an Action Plan to provide a direction on future new tree planting efforts. Work is currently in progress on the development of the plan and a draft will be workshopped with the board.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

41.     If the board do not adopt the report and support further ngahere planning no specific new tree planting program will take place in neighbourhood parks and along the road berms on suburban streets.

42.     Current renewal planting will be the only mechanism for improving current tree asset numbers and the overall canopy cover will remain low.

43.     The analysis report highlights a need for additional efforts to significantly increase tree canopy cover to help provide increased shade and the additional social and health benefits that come with more tree cover.

44.     The planting of new trees is increasingly being recognised as a local solution to help with climate related changes that are taking place. 

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

45.     PSR and Community Facilities will work collaboratively to develop the ‘Growing’ programme to set out new tree planting plans for the next ten years.

46.     The long-term Ngahere Action Plan for the planting programme is currently in development and will be brought to the local board for adoption in quarter four of 2020/2021.

Activities with significant issues

12.     The following work programme activities have been identified by operating departments as having significant issues:

·        Community House development and support: Progress on this activity has been delayed due to COVID-19 and increased demands on the community houses and the provider. Staff report that, while the activity is in progress, it is unlikely that the actual expenditure will occur in FY21.

·        Randwick Park skate park activation: Activations have not been able to proceed as the custodian position has been vacant and has not yet been filled by the provider. Staff anticipate that this will result in an underspend for this financial year.

Activities on hold

13.     The following work programme activities have been identified by operating departments as on hold:

·        Manurewa - renew signage FY20/21: This activity is on hold pending confirmation of te reo Māori names through Te Kete Rukuruku. Delivery of bilingual signage for Te Pātaka Kōrero o Manurewa (Manurewa Library) was completed in T1.

·        Manurewa Aquatic Centre - renew changing room, sauna, ceiling and foyer: Due to funding requirements elsewhere in the work programme, staff are proposing to defer this project to financial year 2021/2022. Staff will provide a memo to the board with details on the proposed deferment.

·        Manurewa Aquatic Centre - renew lap pool floor: Due to funding requirements elsewhere in the work programme, staff are proposing to defer this project to financial year 2021/2022. Staff will provide a memo to the board with details on the proposed deferment.

·        Anderson Park - Upgrade playground: This activity is on hold pending completion of a strategic assessment by a Parks and Places Specialist.

Changes to the local board work programme

Cancelled activities

14.     These activities are cancelled:

·        MR: Te Kete Rukuruku tranche two: As was previously signalled by staff in the board’s December 2020 performance report, Te Kete Rukuruku tranche two will not be delivered in this financial year due to delays in completion of tranche one. The budget for this activity was made available for reallocation by the board in December 2020. Tranche two will be considered by the board for inclusion in future work programmes.

Activities merged with other activities for delivery

15.     These activities have been merged with other activities for efficient delivery:

·        Carry forward: Tōtara Park ecological restoration: This activity has been merged with the activity Tōtara Park ecological restoration.

·        Carry-forward: Manukau Harbour Forum – Manurewa:  This activity has been merged with the activity Manukau Harbour Forum – Manurewa.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

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

17.     Work programmes were approved in August 2020 and delivery is underway. Should significant changes to any projects be required, climate change impacts will be assessed as part of the relevant reporting requirements. Any changes to the timing of approved projects are unlikely to result in changes to emissions.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

18.     When developing the work programmes council group impacts and views are presented to the boards. As this is an information only report there are no further impacts identified.

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

Local impacts and local board views

19.     This report informs the Manurewa Local Board of the performance for November 2020 to February 2021.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

20.     The strategic broker worked with Manurewa Marae to continue strengthening relationships and partnerships, including supporting their strategic direction to pivot in response to vulnerable Maori families impacted by COVID-19.

21.     The planned localised Waitangi Day event to be delivered by Manurewa Marae was cancelled due to risks associated with recent outbreaks of COVID-19 in south Auckland.

22.     Objectives and timelines for the mātauranga Māori Glenveagh Park Reserve Stream Restoration project have been defined for this project, with the bilingual Hikoi Manurewatanga in March 2021 identified as an opportunity to gather local insights. Delivery of Te Kete Waiora with schools is planned for term two, with mana whenua narratives and a community event planned to take place before the end of quarter four.

23.     A series of resources about the pepeha (history) of Manurewa (Te Manurewa o Tamapahore) written in te reo Māori and English were launched at Manurewa Library by Teariki Tuiono in collaboration with local iwi Ngāti Te Ata. Clendon Park kapa haka students performed a waiata written especially for the occasion, 'Te Manurewa'. All library staff have learnt this waiata and the pepeha of Manurewa.

24.     Libraries staff resumed outreach to Kohanga Reo for the year.

25.     Waitangi Day was celebrated with displays exhibited at both Manurewa and Te Matariki Clendon libraries, highlighting their Māori collection and Waitangi Day resources.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

26.     This report is provided to enable the Manurewa Local Board to monitor the organisation’s progress and performance in delivering the 2020/2021 work programmes. There are no financial implications associated with this report.

Financial Performance

27.     Operating expenditure overall of $10.4 million is $735,000 below budget. Generally affected by further COVID-19 alert level 3 disruptions in the Auckland region, community services facilities wage costs, security services and civic functions account for most of the underspend.

28.     Operating Revenue of $1.95 million is $227,000 below budget for recreation entrance and membership fees, and Early Childhood Education (ECE) fees and grants, due to further facility closures under COVID-19 alert level 3. Library revenues for chargeable services and Nathan Homestead operations and holiday programmes were well above budget.

29.     Capital expenditure of $1.1 million is behind budget for the eight months, by less than two percent. 

30.     The financial report for the eight months ended 28 February 2021 for Manurewa Local Board area is in Attachment B.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

31.     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 (e.g. building consents) and is susceptible to market conditions.

32.     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

33.     The local board will receive the next performance update for March 2021 to June 2021.

Statement of proposal to amend the Animal Management Bylaw and controls

File No.: CP2021/02946

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek support on the draft statement of proposal to amend the Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau Ture-ā-rohe Tiaki Kararehe / Auckland Council Animal Management Bylaw 2015 and associated controls before it is approved for public consultation.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       To enable the local board to provide its view on the statement of proposal to amend the Animal Management Bylaw 2015 and controls, staff have prepared a draft proposal.

3.       The draft proposal would continue to enable council to regulate the keeping of animals in order to minimise risks to public health and safety, nuisance, offensive behaviour and misuse of council-controlled public places caused by people interacting with animals.

4.       The main draft proposed changes are to:

·    require an approval to keep more than two standard beehives on urban properties with an area less than 2000 square metres (no approval currently required)

·    incorporate rules from another bylaw about the feeding of animals on private property

·    improve the definitions of ‘nuisance’ and ‘public place’

·    update the format and wording of the Bylaw and controls to make them easier to read and understand.

5.       Staff recommend that the local board provide its view on the draft proposal.

6.       There is a reputational risk that the draft proposal or the local board’s views do not reflect the view of people in the local board area. This risk would be partly mitigated by the opportunity for the local board to provide views on public feedback prior to a final decision.

7.       The local board views will be provided to the Regulatory Committee in May to recommend a statement of proposal to the Governing Body. Public consultation is scheduled for July, deliberations in November and a final Governing Body decision in December 2021.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Local Board:

a)      support the draft statement of proposal in Attachment A of this agenda report to amend the Auckland Council Animal Management Bylaw 2015 and associated controls for public consultation.

Horopaki

Context

The Animal Management Bylaw enables council to regulate the keeping of animals

8.       The Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau Ture-ā-rohe Tiaki Kararehe 2015 / Auckland Council Animal Management Bylaw 2015 (Bylaw) and associated controls (controls) seeks to minimise animal-related risks to public health and safety, nuisance, offensive behaviour and misuse of council-controlled public places.

9.       The Bylaw and controls achieve this by specifying rules about animal ownership and interaction and by limiting ownership of specific animals in urban areas.

10.     The rules are administered by councils Regulatory Compliance team using a graduated approach to compliance.

11.     The Bylaw and controls are one part of a wider regulatory framework. For example, the Animal Products Act 1999 and Animal Welfare Act 1999 for animal welfare, Resource Management Act 1991 and Biosecurity Act 1993 to protect the environment and Dog Control Act 1996 for dog management.

The Regulatory Committee have decided to amend the Bylaw and controls

12.     The Regulatory Committee decided to commence the process to amend the Bylaw as follows:

17 March 2020

(REG/2020/17)

Regulatory Committee endorsed the statutory bylaw review findings that:

·   a bylaw is still the most appropriate way to manage specific animal issues in relation to people, for example limiting the number of poultry in urban residential areas minimises noise and odour nuisance to neighbours

·   the current Bylaw approach is appropriate, but the content, structure and wording could be improved

·   the current Bylaw does not give rise to any implications under, and is not inconsistent with, the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990.

17 November 2020

(REG/2020/78)

Regulatory Committee instructed staff to draft an amended Bylaw (Option two) after considering four options:

·   Option one: status quo – confirm (retain) current Bylaw

·   Option two: amend the current Bylaw – improve the status quo

·   Option three: replace the current Bylaw – new bylaw about animals

·   Option four: revoke Bylaw – no bylaw and instead rely on other existing methods.

13.     Staff have prepared a draft statement of proposal (draft proposal) to implement the decision of the Regulatory Committee by amending the Bylaw and controls (Attachment A).

14.     The draft proposal includes the reasons and decisions leading to the proposed amendments and a comparison between the existing and amended bylaws and controls.

The local board has an opportunity to provide its views on the draft proposal 

15.     The local board has an opportunity to provide its views on the draft proposal in Attachment A by resolution to the Regulatory Committee before it is finalised for public consultation.

16.     For example, the board could support the draft proposal for public consultation, recommend changes, or defer comment until after it has considered public feedback on the proposal.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

The draft proposal makes improvements to the current bylaw and controls

17.     The draft proposal seeks to improve the current Bylaw and controls to minimise risks to public health and safety, nuisance, offensive behaviour and misuse of council-controlled public places. The table below summarises the main draft proposals in comparison to the current Bylaw.

Draft proposals

Reasons for draft proposal

Require an approval to keep more than two standard beehives on urban properties with an area less than 2000 square metres (no approval currently required)

·  to minimise bee-related nuisance in areas with growing population density while still allowing for the keeping of bees in urban areas.

Incorporate rules from another bylaw about the feeding of animals on private property

·  to streamline rules about animals into a single bylaw, as existing rules about the feeding of wild and feral animals on private property are currently included in the Property Maintenance and Nuisance Bylaw 2015

·  moving this clause to the Bylaw was suggested in the review findings to the Property Maintenance and Nuisance Bylaw (REG/2020/50).

Improve definitions of ‘nuisance’ and ‘public place’

·  to align with the definitions in the Public Safety and Nuisance Bylaw 2013 to improve consistency across council bylaws.

Update the Bylaw format and structure

·  to align with best practice for bylaw drafting and make the Bylaw easier to read and understand.

18.     Limits on the number of beehives and stock would continue to only apply to urban areas as defined within the Auckland Unitary Plan, for example:

·   Aotea/Great Barrier has no urban areas and is not subject to these limits

·   rural townships such as Helensville and Clevedon are urban areas.

The draft proposal complies with statutory requirements

19.     The draft proposal has been prepared in accordance with statutory requirements. The amended Bylaw and controls:

·   help minimise risks to public health and safety, nuisance, offensive behaviour and misuse of council-controlled public places

·   use a format and words that are easier to read and understand

·   are authorised by statute, not repugnant to other legislation and not unreasonable

·   do not give rise to any implications and are not inconsistent with the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990.

Staff recommend the local board consider providing its views on the draft proposal

20.     Staff recommend that the local board consider the draft proposal and whether it wishes to provide its views by resolution to the Regulatory Committee.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

21.     There are no implications for climate change arising from this decision.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

22.     The draft proposal impacts councils Regulatory Compliance team, who implement the Bylaw. The unit is aware of the impacts of the draft proposal and their implementation role.

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

Local impacts and local board views

23.     The Bylaw is important to local boards as it is an area of high community interest. They also have the delegated authority to make conditions about horse riding in public places.

24.     Local board views on the review were provided in September 2019 (see Attachment B). The main view of local board members during the review was to improve the Bylaw’s clarity, minimise the misuse of council-controlled public places and to address animal-specific controls. The Regulatory Committee as part of its decisions on options on 17 November 2020 (REG/2020/78) directed staff to address some but not all views provided (see Attachment C).

25.     The local board has an opportunity in this report to provide its views on the draft proposal by resolution to the Regulatory Committee.

26.     The local board will also have further opportunity to provide its to a Bylaw Panel on any public feedback to the proposal from people in the local board area.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

27.     The Bylaw has significance for Māori as kaitiaki of Papatūānuku.

28.     Staff discussed the Bylaw with mana whenua at the Infrastructure and Environmental Services Mana Whenua hui in April 2019. The main view of mana whenua was to improve the clarity and how it relates to Māori and papakāinga. The draft proposal addresses this by clarifying that limits on the ownership of animals in urban areas do not apply to papakāinga within the Māori Purpose Zone of the Auckland Council Unitary Plan.

29.     Mana whenua and mataawaka will also have opportunity to provide further feedback during the public consultative process on the proposal.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

30.     There are no financial implications to the local board for any decisions to support the draft proposal for public consultation. The Governing Body will consider any financial implications associated with public notification at a later date.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

31.     The following risk has been identified

If...

Then...

Mitigation

The draft proposal or the local board’s views do not reflect the view of people in the local board area

there may be negative attention to council regarding the Bylaw.

The local board will have an opportunity to consider any public feedback and provide its formal views to a Bylaw Panel prior to the final decision.

 

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Proposal to make a new Public Trading and Events Bylaw

File No.: CP2021/03234

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek support on the draft proposal to make a new Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau Ture ā-rohe Tauhokohoko, Takunetanga, me ngā Whakaahua i ngā Wāhi Marea 2022 / Auckland Council Public Trading, Events and Filming Bylaw 2022 before it is finalised for public consultation.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       To enable the local board to provide its view on the proposal to make a new Public Trading, Events and Filming Bylaw, staff have prepared a draft proposal.

3.       The draft proposal would continue to enable council to regulate trading activities, events and filming to minimise risks to public safety, nuisance and the misuse of council-controlled public places.[1]

4.       The main draft proposals are to:

·    continue to regulate trading,[2] events and filming in a similar way to the current Bylaw

·    set specific rules for rental micromobility devices

·    identify filming in a separate category to events

·    merge trading activities such as busking and pavement art under street performance

·    update the Bylaw format, structure, definitions, the title, exemptions, approval conditions and other matters to make a new bylaw easier to understand and comply with.

5.       Staff recommend that the local board provide its view on the draft proposal.

6.       There is a reputational risk that the draft proposal or the local board’s views do not reflect the view of people in their local board area. This risk would be partly mitigated by the opportunity for the local board to provide views on public feedback prior to a final decision.

7.       The local board views will be provided to the Regulatory Committee in May to recommend a proposal to the Governing Body. Public consultation is scheduled for July, deliberations for October and a final Governing Body decision for November 2021.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      support the draft Statement of Proposal in Attachment A of this agenda report to make a new Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau Ture ā-rohe Tauhokohoko, Takunetanga, me ngā Whakaahua i ngā Wāhi Marea 2022 / Auckland Council Public Trading, Events and Filming Bylaw 2022 for public consultation.

Horopaki

Context

The Bylaw regulates trading, events and filming in council-controlled public places

8.       Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau Ture ā-rohe Tauhokohoko, Takunetanga, me ngā Whakaahua i ngā Wāhi Marea 2022 / Auckland Council Public Trading, Events and Filming Bylaw 2022 (Bylaw) seeks to minimise risks to public safety, nuisance and the misuse of council-controlled public places caused by trading activities (including micromobility), events and filming.

9.       The Bylaw:

·    achieves this by requiring prior approval for most trading, event and filming activities and enabling council to make additional requirements in a separate control[3]

·    is administered by several council departments and council-controlled organisations

·    is enforced by the Licencing and Regulatory Compliance unit using a graduated compliance model (information / education / enforcement)

·    is one part of a wider regulatory framework of Acts, regulations and bylaws[4]

·    will expire on 26 February 2022, meaning council must adopt a new bylaw before that date to avoid a regulatory gap.

The Regulatory Committee decided to make a new bylaw

10.     The Regulatory Committee requested staff commence the process to make a new bylaw:

11.     Staff have prepared a draft proposal to implement the decision of the committee (Attachment A). The draft proposal presents the reasons and decisions which led to a new bylaw being proposed and provides a comparison between the current and proposed bylaws.

The local board has an opportunity to provide its views on the draft proposal

12.     The local board has an opportunity to provide its views on the draft proposal in Attachment A by resolution to the Regulatory Committee before it is finalised for public consultation.

13.     For example, the board could support the draft proposal for public consultation, recommend changes or defer comment until after it has considered public feedback on the proposal.

Analysis and advice

The draft Proposal makes a new Public Trading and Events Bylaw

14.     The draft proposal makes a new Public Trading and Events Bylaw to better minimise public safety risks, nuisance and misuse of council-controlled public places.


 

15.     The table below summarises the main proposals in comparison to the current Bylaw:

Main proposals

Reasons for proposals

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

19.     The draft proposal impacts the operations of several council departments and council-controlled organisations. This includes Auckland Council’s Licencing and Regulatory Compliance Unit, Events in Regional Service Planning, Investment and Partnerships Unit, Alcohol Licencing and Environmental Health Unit, Auckland Unlimited (previously known as Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development), Screen Auckland and Auckland Transport.

20.     Relevant staff are aware of the impacts of the draft proposal and their implementation role.

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

Local impacts and local board views

21.     The draft new Bylaw impacts on local governance as it regulates trading, events and filming activities in council-controlled public places, for example local parks.

22.     Representative local board views were provided in February 2021 through a joint working party established by the Regulatory Committee.[5] The main views of group members were unanimous support for a new bylaw and suggestions on the detailed content.[6]

23.     These views were considered by the Regulatory Committee on 16 February 2021 (REG/2021/4). The committee directed staff to draft a new Bylaw. Suggestions on the detailed content are included in the draft new Bylaw.

24.     The local board has an opportunity to provide its views on the draft proposal by resolution to the Regulatory Committee.

25.     The local board will have further opportunity to provide its views to a Bylaw Panel on any public feedback to the Proposal from people in their local board area.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

26.     The Bylaw supports the Māori Plan for Tāmaki Makaurau by facilitating opportunities for Māori business owners such as those participating in major or international events to promote distinctive identity, build exposure and establish valuable networks.

27.     Feedback from mana whenua and some Māori license and permit holders highlighted a particular interest and concern for environmental impacts such as ineffective waste management at events and the limited level of enforcement.

28.     The draft proposal continues to address waste management at events by requiring compliance with a waste plan in a way that is easier to understand. Other concerns for better enforcement relate to implementation rather than the making of a new bylaw and have been forwarded to relevant staff.

29.     Staff will proactively engage with mana whenua and mataawaka during the public consultative process to ensure Māori are able to provide their views on the proposal.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

30.     There are no financial implications to the local board for any decisions to support the draft proposal for public consultation. The Governing Body will consider any financial implications associated with public notification at a later date.

Public feedback on proposal to make new navigation rules

File No.: CP2021/03338

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek views on how the Bylaw Panel should address matters raised in public feedback to the proposal to make new navigation rules, before a final decision is made.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       To enable the local board to provide its views on how a Bylaw Panel should address matters raised in public feedback to the proposal to make a new Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau Ture ā-Rohe Urungi Āhuru 2021 / Auckland Council Navigation Bylaw 2021 and associated controls, staff have prepared summary and deliberation reports.

3.       The proposal continues to regulate the use of Auckland’s navigable waters (for example by recreational vessels, kite boarders, swimmers, divers, ferries and cargo vessels) to help minimise the risk of accidents, nuisance and damage.

4.       The main proposals are to:

·      increase the maximum speed limit on the Waitemata Harbour Zone to 18 knots to allow faster movement of public transport vessels, but still travel at a safe speed

·      clarify existing rules, including about swimming, events and support vessels

·      make new rules about novel craft (for example a motorised surfboard)

·      align rules about the use of Ōrākei Basin with current accepted practices

·      remove rules about licensing of commercial vessels for hire and marine mammal protections as these are more appropriately addressed in separate legislation

·      update the format and wording of the rules to be easier to read and understand.

5.       Staff recommend that the local board provide its views on how the Bylaw Panel should address matters raised in public feedback to the proposal, and if it wishes, present those views to the Bylaw Panel. Taking this approach will assist the Panel and Governing Body to decide whether to adopt the proposal.

6.       There is a reputational risk that feedback from the local board area is from a limited group of people and does not reflect the views of the whole local board area. This report mitigates this risk by providing local boards with a summary of all public feedback.

7.       The Bylaw Panel will consider all local board views and public feedback, deliberate and make recommendations to the Governing Body on 7 May 2021. The Governing Body will make a final decision in July 2021.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      receive the public feedback on the proposal to make a new Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau Ture ā-Rohe Urungi Āhuru 2021 / Auckland Council Navigation Safety Bylaw 2021 and associated controls as attached to this agenda report.

b)      provide its views on how the Bylaw Panel should address matters raised in public feedback to the proposal in recommendation a) to assist the Bylaw Panel in its deliberations.

c)      appoint one or more local board members to present the views in b) to the Bylaw Panel on 7 May 2021.

d)      delegate authority to the local board chair to appoint replacement(s) to the persons in c) should an appointed member be unable to present to the Bylaw Panel on 7 May 2021.

Horopaki

Context

The Navigation Safety Bylaw and controls regulate activity on Auckland’s navigable waters

8.       The Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau Ture ā-Rohe Urungi Āhuru 2021 / Auckland Council Navigation Bylaw 2021 and associated controls makes rules that seek to minimise the risk of accidents, nuisance and damage within Auckland’s navigable waters.

9.       The rules are administered by the Harbourmaster using a graduated approach to compliance. This includes the use of infringement fines as an alternative to prosecution.

10.     The Bylaw is one part of a wider regulatory framework that includes the:

·      Maritime Transport Act and Maritime Rules that impose national water safety rules

·      Resource Management Act to protect the environment

·      Marine Mammal Protection Act to protect marine mammals.

11.     The Bylaw expires on 31 July 2021. Council must adopt a new bylaw before that date to avoid a regulatory gap.

Council proposed a new Bylaw and associated controls for public feedback

12.     On 13 October 2020 the Governing Body approved a proposal to make a new Bylaw for public consultation (Item 11, GB/2020/117).

13.     The proposal arose from a statutory review of the Bylaw shown in the figure below.

14.     The proposal regulates the use of Auckland’s navigable waters (for example by recreational vessels, kite boarders, swimmers, divers, ferries and cargo vessels) to help minimise the risk of accidents, nuisance and damage.

15.     The proposal was publicly notified for feedback from 16 November 2020 until 14 February 2021. During that period, council received feedback from 247 people.

Decisions leading to the proposal

The local board has an opportunity to provide views on public feedback

16.     The local board now has an opportunity to provide its views on how a Bylaw Panel should address matters raised in public feedback to the proposal before a final decision is made.

17.     Local board views must be provided by resolution to the Bylaw Panel. The local board can also choose to present those views to the Bylaw Panel on 7 May 2021.

18.     The nature of the views is at the discretion of the local board but must remain within the scope of the proposal and public feedback. For example, the local board could:

·      indicate support for matters raised in public feedback by people from the local board area

·      recommend how the Bylaw Panel should address matters raised in public feedback.

Analysis and advice

Feedback from people in the local board area supports the proposal

19.     A total of two people and from the local board area provided feedback to the proposal via online and email feedback. There was split support for all proposals and 100 per cent support for proposal two.

Local impacts and local board views

25.     Local board views were sought on a draft proposal at a workshop in August and business meeting in September 2020 because the topic is considered to have high community interest.

26.     All 21 local boards provided views, most in support of public consultation. A summary of local board views, staff responses and any changes made to the proposal can be viewed in the link to the 13 October 2020 Regulatory committee agenda, page 173 (Attachment B to Item 9).

27.     This report provides an opportunity for the local board to give views on public feedback to the proposal, before a final decision is made.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

28.     The Bylaw can contribute to the Māori Plan’s key directions and aspirations by supporting safe recreational, cultural and economic activities on Auckland’s navigable waters.

29.     The Bylaw regulates a number of activities undertaken by Māori for example, waka ama, other cultural or sporting events on the water and the operation of commercial vessels.

30.     During the review, mana whenua and mataawaka indicated a preference to provide feedback on any proposed changes to the Bylaw through a public consultation process.

31.     The majority of people identifying as Māori who provided feedback support proposals two through to eight and have split support for proposal one. This is consistent with the overall percentage of public feedback in support.

Proposal to vary the Regional Fuel Tax scheme

File No.: CP2021/03633

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek feedback from local boards on the draft proposal to vary the Regional Fuel Tax scheme.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Regional Fuel Tax (RFT) scheme for Auckland, established in 2018, is a key funding source for investment in Auckland’s transport network. The scheme is projected to generate $1.5 billion of revenue and enables over $4 billion of additional investment.

3.       Decisions by central government to invest directly in RFT projects and current reviews of the Auckland Transport Alignment Project (ATAP) indicative package and the draft Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) have necessitated a variation to the RFT scheme.

4.       There is no proposal to alter the level of the RFT, the period for which the scheme runs, or the area covered by the tax.

5.       Decisions around the overall investment programme for transport and the funding of this are made through the ATAP and RLTP processes. The allocation of projects within the RLTP to the RFT programme is a key step to support implementation.

6.       The draft proposal to vary the RFT scheme (refer Attachment A) retains the 14 projects identified in the original programme but updates the specific initiatives within these projects, along with cost and timing projections.

7.       The draft proposal went out for public consultation alongside the draft RLTP. Following consideration of feedback from local boards and from the general public, a final proposal will be endorsed by the Governing Body and sent to the relevant ministers for approval and enactment through Order in Council.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      receive the report on proposed variations to the 2018 Regional Fuel Tax scheme.

b)      provide feedback on the proposed variation to the 2018 Regional Fuel Tax scheme.

 

Horopaki

Context

The creation of Auckland’s RFT scheme

8.       Work on an aligned strategic approach to transport in Auckland (ATAP) began in 2016. This work made clear that the level of investment needed was not achievable with the existing funding mechanisms.

9.       A regional fuel tax was proposed as a tool to achieve a higher level of investment for Auckland. With the leverage that this funding could drive from government subsidies and development contributions, the RFT enabled $4 billion of investment that would not otherwise occur.

10.     Without this investment, a number of the positive outcomes of the programme would not be able to be achieved, including improved road safety, increased availability and use of public transport, more active transport options, improved access to employment, and more growth and housing development.

11.     An amendment to the Land Transport Management Act 2003 (LTMA) was passed in 2018 which provided for the introduction of regional fuel taxes by order in council.

12.     Auckland Council consulted with Aucklanders on the introduction of an RFT as part of its 10-year Budget 2018-2028 consultation in February/March 2018. Following this, a detailed proposal for an RFT scheme was prepared, consulted on from 1-14 May 2018, and then approved for submission to the government.

13.     The proposed scheme was approved by the government and become operative from 1 July 2018 (refer Attachment B).

Details of the existing scheme

14.     Auckland’s RFT scheme collects 10c per litre (plus GST) and applies to sales of petrol and diesel by retailers within the boundaries of Auckland Council (excluding Aotea Great Barrier Island) from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2028.

15.     Revenue from the scheme is projected to be $150 million per annum, a total of $1.5 billion across the 10 years.

16.     The original proposal also details:

·        the key objectives of the scheme

·        the effects of the scheme (positive and negative)

·        how it aligned with the relevant strategic documents

·        why it should be a funding source (including other options considered)

·        reasoning for the exclusion of Aotea Great Barrier Island

·        the information and assumptions that support the forecast revenue calculations.

17.     The programme funded 14 categories of expenditure referred to in the scheme as projects:

·        bus priority improvements

·        city centre bus infrastructure

·        improving airport access

·        Eastern Busway (formerly AMETI)

·        park and rides

·        electric trains and stabling

·        ferry network improvements (was downtown ferry redevelopment)

·        road safety

·        active transport

·        Penlink

·        Mill Road corridor

·        road corridor improvements

·        network capacity and performance improvements

·        growth-related transport infrastructure.

Progress of the scheme to 31 December 2020

18.     Since the RFT was introduced, $376 million of revenue has been received by Auckland Council. Auckland Transport has spent $346 million on designated projects which was funded by $162 million of RFT, $135 million of Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency subsidies, and $49 million of development contributions.

19.     The programme was always planned to ramp up over the 10 years, reflecting the need to complete projects that were already in train in 2018, and to gear up to a much higher level of delivery. Unspent funds at any stage in the programme are held in reserve. This reserve totalled $197 million as at 31 December 2020.

20.     Key achievements of the scheme so far include:

·        improving road safety through the introduction of lower speed limits on 600 Auckland roads to reduce harm and loss of life

·        installing red-light running enforcement and CCTV cameras

·        improving airport access through works on the Puhinui Station with construction now underway on the new interchange

·        improving the Downtown Ferry terminal with the completion of breakwater piling and Pontoon 5 and Landing Pontoon 2 now at the commissioning stage to increase capacity and customer experience.

Subsequent government funding announcements

21.     Two key announcements by central government have reduced the requirement for Regional Fuel Tax funding for some of the projects included in the scheme.

22.     On 29 January 2020, the government announced the New Zealand Upgrade Programme (NZUP). This programme included direct crown investment of $3.48 billion in transport infrastructure for Auckland.

23.     The NZUP provided funding for two projects included in the RFT scheme. The Penlink project was allocated $411 million and the Mill Road project was allocated $1.354 billion. Following this, the responsibility for the delivery of these two projects was transferred to Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.

24.     As part of its fiscal stimulus package to support the economy in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, the government announced a programme on 1 April 2020 to fund ‘shovel ready’ infrastructure projects.

25.     Following applications by the Auckland Council group, a number of projects were contracted to receive funding. Two of the successful projects constituted part of wider RFT projects.

26.     Funding was received towards the Downtown Ferry Terminal which is a part of the ferry network improvements RFT project.

27.     Funding was also received to support the Puhinui Bus/Rail Interchange project which forms a part of the Improving Airport Access RFT project.

28.     Staff consider that this, along with the current reviews of ATAP and the draft RLTP (summarised below), constitute a change to a material aspect of the programme of capital projects supported by the RFT as enacted in 2018.

ATAP update and draft RLTP preparation

29.     Auckland Council and Auckland Transport have been working with central government partners to update the ATAP. The development of an ATAP indicative package will inform and guide Auckland’s RLTP and the National Land Transport Programme (NLTP).

30.     Despite additional funding available to the programme through direct government investment, the ATAP budget is still highly constrained. This is the result of increased demands for transport investment in Auckland as well as updated costings and information around existing projects. Funding of the ATAP indicative package is reliant on the continuation of the RFT scheme.

31.     Staff consider that this, along with the recent central government funding decisions (summarised above) constitute a change to a material aspect of the capital projects programmes supported by the RFT as enacted in 2018.

32.     Given these material changes, staff have prepared a formal proposal to vary the scheme, as required by section 65G(1) of the LTMA 2003. This draft variation proposal formed the basis for public consultation which is required under section 65H(c) of the LTMA.

33.     Following consultation, the Governing Body will consider feedback (including that from local boards) and then submit the proposal (with any changes made) to the Ministers of Finance and Transport, who will then decide whether to accept it (sections 65I and 65J of the LTMA). If the Ministers do accept the proposal, they will send it on to the Governor-General to enact through an Order in Council (sections 65J and 65K of the LTMA).

Analysis and advice

Proposed variation to the scheme

34.     Given the changes discussed above (government funding and ATAP update) and the fact that local board views were captured for the original 2018 scheme, the council seeks local board views on the proposed variation. 

35.     The proposed variation of the scheme is led by the work on the updated ATAP indicative package and the draft RLTP.

36.     It is not proposed that there is any change to:

·        the rate of the RFT

·        the period of the scheme

·        the area subject to the scheme.

37.     Despite the fact that the scheme does not run to the end of the new 10-year budget, it is not proposed that the council looks to extend the scheme. This is primarily because work continues on the Congestion Question project which is investigating different road pricing options that could replace the RFT in the future.

38.     It is proposed that the scheme maintains the same 14 projects (with the special consideration of Penlink and Mill Road staying in the scheme without additional allocation of RFT due to a change in delivery and funding management) but that changes are made to:

·        the descriptions of projects, identified initiatives within them, and projected benefits, to reflect any changes in scope

·        the level of projected total expenditure and indicative RFT contribution to each project to reflect where new funding has become available or where project costings have been updated

·        the timing of projects following decisions made through the development of the draft RLTP

·        the naming of one project where it is proposed that Downtown Ferry Redevelopment is renamed Ferry Network Improvements to reflect the incorporation of initiatives to purchase new electric ferries to help decarbonise the public transport fleet.

39.     It has been assessed that these changes constitute a change to a material aspect of the programme of capital projects supported by the RFT scheme and therefore, the council must prepare a proposal to vary the scheme, pursuant to section 65G(1)(a) of the LTMA.

 

Consultation

40.     Public consultation on the draft proposal to vary the RFT scheme is occurring alongside the Auckland Transport consultation on the draft RLTP.

41.     This consultation takes place from 29 March to 2 May 2021.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

42.     The proposal to vary the RFT scheme constitutes a change in an allocation of funding within the overall ATAP indicative package and RLTP. Transport projects funded include climate change optimisation, such as electric trains and stabling and promoting eco-friendly commuting initiatives like improving congestion through network capacity and performance improvements.

43.     The impacts of the complete RLTP on the climate have been reported to the local board in another report on this agenda.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

44.     Council staff have worked with staff from Auckland Transport representatives in the development of the draft proposal.

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

Local impacts and local board views

45.     Local board views will be captured through this report and reported to the Planning Committee prior to decision-making.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

46.     The proposal to vary the RFT scheme constitutes a change in an allocation of funding within the overall ATAP indicative package and RLTP. The impacts of the RLTP on Māori have been reported to the local board.

47.     The RFT proposal has been incorporated in the RLTP consultation process, which includes extensive engagement with 19 mana whenua and mataawaka groups.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

48.     The RFT scheme is projected to deliver around $1.5 billion of revenue over the 2018-2028 period. This constitutes a significant portion of the transport investment in Auckland.

49.     Without an RFT, council would need to either:

·        utilise another of the currently available funding mechanisms (general rates or an Interim Transport Levy), or

·        fund transport at the level of renewals and committed projects only.

50.     The rating options would result in ratepayers facing significant increases (10-11 per cent) in addition to the general rates increase and paying according to their property value, rather than based on use. To fund the transport budget at the level of renewals and committed projects only would have significant impacts on the growth and economy of Auckland.


 

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

51.     The key risk is a potential misalignment of the RFT scheme from the ATAP programme and the RLTP. This variation proposal looks to mitigate this risk by updating the scheme and the RLTP in tandem.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

52.     Public consultation on the proposal takes place from 29 March to 2 May 2021.

53.     The Planning Committee will receive public feedback and local board views on the proposal in May 2021.

54.     The Planning Committee and Governing Body will consider the adoption of a proposal for submission to government.

Draft Statement of Expectations for Council-controlled Organisations

File No.: CP2021/03598

 

  

 

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek local board feedback on the draft Statement of Expectations for Council-controlled Organisations.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       Section 64B in the Local Government Act 2002 (the Act) allows for Council to issue a ‘Statement of Expectations’ to its Council-controlled Organisations (CCOs). This is a new power inserted into the Act in late 2019.

3.       The 2020 CCO Review recommended that Council prepare a Statement of Expectations (SOE), to be part of the suite of accountability tools through which Auckland Council provides direction to its CCOs. A Statement of Expectations will provide guidance on how CCOs should undertake their business, as compared to the Accountability Policy contained in the Long-term Plan, which focusses on what CCOs must do.  As it will not be part of the Long-term Plan and therefore not subject to the special consultative procedure, it will be easier to amend than the Accountability Policy, as it is refined over time.

4.       Attached to this report is an initial draft of the Statement of Expectations. It is organised to reflect the wording of s64B of the Local Government Act, and is in three sections:

·   conduct of relationships

·   shareholder obligations with which CCOs must act consistently

·   other expectations.

5.       The SOE contains a number of elements which previously were in the Accountability Policy. Therefore, there is some urgency for an initial SOE to be confirmed around the same time as the Ten Year Budget/Long-term Plan so that those expectations on CCOs remain in place.  Given this, the Statement of Expectations is intended to reflect existing and established practice. This is true of the material in relation to local boards, which re-states and reinforces the shared governance model of Auckland Council and CCOs obligations to local boards within that.

6.       Staff recognise however, that the CCO Review also contained a number of recommendations which are currently being worked on, which will affect how CCOs work within the governance system and with local boards. It is anticipated therefore that the SOE is likely to be subject to a relatively early revision to take account of these changes.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      provide feedback on the draft Statement of Expectations, prepared in accordance with s64B of the Local Government Act 2002.

Horopaki

Context

7.       In August 2020, the Governing Body received the report of the independent CCO Review.  Among the 64 recommendations, the review panel recommended that Council use section 64B of Local Government Act 2002, which allows local authorities to issue a Statement of Expectations to its CCOs.  The provision states:

64B Statement of expectations

(1) The shareholders in a council-controlled organisation may prepare a statement of expectations that—

(a) specifies how the organisation is to conduct its relationships with—

(i) shareholding local authorities; and

(ii) the communities of those local authorities, including any specified stakeholders within those communities; and

(iii) iwi, hapū, and other Māori organisations; and

(b) requires the organisation to act consistently with—

(i) the statutory obligations of the shareholding local authorities; and

(ii) the shareholders’ obligations pursuant to agreements with third parties (including with iwi, hapū, or other Māori organisations).

(2) A statement of expectations may include other shareholder expectations, such as expectations in relation to community engagement and collaboration with shareholders and others in the delivery of services.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

8.       The Statement of Expectations was inserted into the Local Government Act 2002 in 2019 as section 64B. As a relatively new provision, there are few examples around New Zealand as to how it should be used, and how it relates to practices such as letters of expectation, which Council has used in the past to specify its expectations of CCOs. However, the focus of the legislative wording is clearly on behaviours and relationships, rather than the specific activities to be undertaken by CCOs, or the overall governance and accountability regime within which they operate. 

9.       It is also important to be clear about how such an SOE would fit within a wider accountability framework. The intention of this SOE is that it specifies how CCOs should undertake their business and relationships (with Council, communities and other stakeholders), while the Accountability Policy in the Long-term Plan focusses on what CCOs must do. 

10.     As part of the current Long-term Plan process, the Accountability Policy has been revised to exclude the behavioural aspects which previously were included there. These aspects have been included in the Statement of Expectations. It is important that these two accountability tools align and are approved concurrently. 

11.     The SOE is not intended to provide specific protocols of action for CCOs however, or to provide templates (for e.g. statements of intent templates). Material such as that are contained in the CCO Governance Manual, which itself will be revised following approval of the SOE.

12.     As recommended by the CCO review panel, this version of the SOE has been modelled on a similar document in central government, the Treasury Owner’s Expectations Manual, which is designed for state owned enterprises and crown entities. Its content is intended largely to collate existing expectations and policies, rather than introduce new ones at this time.  However, as different strategies and practices develop, it is expected that these may be added – or deleted – from the SOE.

13.     Additionally, it is very likely that new ways of working will emerge as other recommendations from the CCO Review are implemented. For example, the local board services team is working with Auckland Transport on options for smaller projects to be promoted more easily.  If this results in a protocol or agreement on how to achieve this, this might be a useful inclusion in a future version of the SOE.

14.     The SOE itself is arranged to closely match the legislative provisions. There are three key sections, which relate to:

·   conduct of relationships

·   shareholder obligations with which CCOs must act consistently

·   other expectations.

15.     The first section focusses on how CCOs should interact with Council, and what a CCO’s role is. It outlines expectations for how this should happen, and covers things such as good governance, maintaining a public service ethos and providing services efficiently. The SOE provides a significant early section which reinforces the shared governance model operated by Auckland Council, with a key point here being the need to treat local boards not as stakeholders but an equal partner in that governance system.

16.     The second section deals with statutory obligations. This simply restates obligations which CCOs will already be well aware of. Consequently, it is relatively short. The second part of this section relates to third parties, and this will require more development before approval in late May, and in subsequent iterations. 

17.     The final section deals with issues of a more specific nature to Auckland Council. In particular, this will include some of the issues which have arisen in the last few years and during the CCO Review:  executive remuneration, branding, and how to balance public good and commercial goals. We also anticipate this is where issues relating to our revised Maori Responsiveness Strategy (Kia ora Tāmaki Makaurau) will be addressed and reinforced, to the degree they are not already dealt with in the Accountability Policy.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

18.     The key expectations of CCOs in respect of climate change are contained in the Accountability Policy (1.1.5) and not the Statement of Expectations.  This reflects the complementary nature of the two documents, with the Accountability Policy focussing on what Council expects of CCOs.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

19.     Due to timing imperatives, CCO Boards will be asked to consider the draft at the same time as local board are considering the draft. CCO staff have already been consulted on early drafts, as stakeholders for this work.

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

Local impacts and local board views

20.     This report is to seek local board views on the Statement of Expectations.

21.     The intention of this first iteration of the SOE is to reinforce the expectations entailed in the shared governance model of Auckland Council. In particular, this accords local boards with the critical role as representatives of local communities in the region.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

22.     The key expectations of CCOs in respect of Māori outcomes are contained in the Accountability Policy (1.1.1) and not the Statement of Expectations. This reflects the complementary nature of the two documents, with the Accountability Policy focussing on what Council expects of CCOs. 

23.     Nonetheless, as the Kia Ora Tāmaki Makaurau framework is refined and approved (expected in mid-year 2021), we anticipate that additional detail from that framework will be added to the SOE in this area, to reflect Council’s expectations of CCO engagement with Māori.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

24.     The Statement of Expectations reflects existing expectations arising from the shared governance of Auckland Council and the arms’ length entity model represented by CCOs. It does not add new policy. It therefore has no financial implications at this time. 

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

25.     The key risk is that the Statement of Expectations is not approved when it is considered by CCO Oversight Committee in June. Given that some expectations have been taken out of the Accountability Policy and placed in the Statement of Expectations, and that the two documents are intended to work in a complementary fashion, it is important that they are both signed off together. This risk is being mitigated by seeking early feedback from local boards, CCO Boards, and in May holding a workshop with governing body elected members. This is intended to ensure that a robust draft of the SOE is available for approval in June 2021. 

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

26.     At the same time as this report is being provided to local boards for feedback, we are continuing to develop the statement of expectations with other parts of the Council governance structure. CCOs have been given the opportunity to input to the version which has been provided to local boards. CCO Boards will be considering the SOE at their April meetings. 

27.     It is then intended that the SOE will be presented to the CCO Oversight Committee of Governing Body for final approval at its June meeting.

28.     It is anticipated that the SOE may be revised again to take account of new expectations arising from implementation of the CCO Review.
