13

Draft Statement of Expectations for Council-controlled Organisations (CCOs)

 

Resolution number WTK/2021/32

MOVED by Chairperson G Presland, seconded by Member M Allen:  

That the Waitākere Ranges Local Board:

a)         support the creation of a Statement of Expectations (SoE) to CCOs pursuant to 64B of the Local Government Act 2002 but asks that a more collaborative development process is designed so local boards as key stakeholders are provided a more meaningful opportunity to engage in its creation.

b)        acknowledge that other related pieces of work that seek to implement the recommendations of the Independent Panel on the Review of Council Controlled Organisations in 2020 is occurring concurrently, but does not believe that necessitates the adoption of a high-level SOE that is unlikely to lead to meaningful understanding of expectations and change in approach.

c)         believe that the draft SOE is too high level and will not provide the requisite detail to CCOs of council’s expectations on “how” CCOs must undertake their business.  In particular while climate change is highlighted, Council’s four well beings approach is not highlighted.

d)        believe that the wording of the draft SOE, specifically to “build good relationships” and “consult” with local boards does not recognise them as governors but continues to treat them as one of many stakeholders.

e)         believe a more detailed document similar to the Treasury’s Owner’s Expectations Manual is required so CCOs are not left in the position of having to determine what compliance looks like on their own.

f)          consider that more detailed direction should be provided to CCOs to develop plans to support local board aspirations, including annual work programmes, as well as community engagement plans.

g)        request that a joint panel of local board members and Governing Body members are established to develop the SOE and review the Governance Manual for substantive CCOs and report back to boards and the Governing Body for adoption in the first quarter of 2021/2022. 

h)        request that the Waitākere Ranges Heritage Area Act 2008 be included in the list of legislation to be complied with under Section 2: Shareholder obligations with which CCOs must act consistently.

Proposal to make a new Public Trading and Events Bylaw

 

Resolution number WTK/2021/35

MOVED by Member S Coney, seconded by Deputy Chairperson S Toms:  

That the Waitākere Ranges Local Board provide the following feedback on the proposed “Public trading, events and filming bylaw 2022”:

a)         consider that the bylaw is principally written with urban public places in mind and does not take into account the diversity of public places across Auckland, specifically it does not address all issues raised by trading, events and filming in the Waitākere Ranges Heritage Area.

b)        request that the bylaw include a specific reference to the Waitākere Ranges Heritage Area Act 2008 (WRHA) as a key consideration when making decisions under the bylaw for approval of trading, events and filming in the WRHA area.

c)         request that, in clause 12, “Applications for an approval will be considered against relevant matters”, include:   

a.    additional matters to be considered in section 12 (2) [insert in the Table (row c)]: "impacts on the environment, such as native fauna and flora" and "in the Waitākere Ranges Heritage Area, impacts on any of the heritage features", as matters to be considered.

The same clauses should be inserted in 14 (2).

d)        consider that Clause 6, allowing trading without approval in certain circumstances, appears too permissive when applied to visitor destinations in the Waitākere Ranges. The Board is concerned about what may be allowed as of right under clause c) and e).

e)         request that the bylaw tightens up requirements for hiring of recreational goods in public places so that they require approval with conditions under this bylaw.

f)          request the alignment of policies for managing carparking with the adjacent parkland particularly in rural coastal communities to ensure integrated decision-making.

g)        is concerned that as public place is defined to include road and parking areas, the outdoor display of goods 6 (1) (a) could result in roads and parking areas being used for this purpose. This should not be allowed. Roads and parking areas should not be used for such displays.

h)        request that the bylaw defines "outdoor fitness provider".

i)          request that the following clause be inserted in the section relating to council review, c18 (1), insert "to deal with any environmental risks or harms".

j)          request that a new clause be included in this bylaw, or the dog control bylaw ,to require professional dog walkers using public space to follow a code of conduct and apply for a license.

Proposal to vary the Regional Fuel Tax (RFT) scheme

 

Resolution number WTK/2021/36

MOVED by Chairperson G Presland, seconded by Member M Clayton:  

That the Waitākere Ranges Local Board:

a)         support continuation of the Regional Fuel Tax and the proposed variation to the Regional Fuel Tax scheme, but is disappointed that the west is not well represented among the selected projects.

CARRIED

 

 

17

Public feedback on proposal to make new navigation rules

 

Resolution number WTK/2021/37

MOVED by Chairperson G Presland, seconded by Member K Turner:  

That the Waitākere Ranges 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.

b)        reiterate that it does not support the proposed increase of the maximum speed limit in the Waitematā Harbour zone above 12 knots in line with the majority of submissions from the general public.

c)         note its area includes large stretches of the Manukau Harbour coast and marine area from Wood Bay through to the Manukau Heads, and the West Coast from Whatipu to O’Neill Bay.

d)        support the need for a navigation safety bylaw to ensure safety on the water and to protect people and the environment from the impacts of accidents on the water. 

e)         in relation to the West Coast, supports Subpart 3 – Responsibilities of persons undertaking certain activities, Clause 23 restricting activity between surf lifesaving flags to bathing, swimming, or body boarding only to ensure there is a safe separation of activities on these already dangerous beaches.

f)          recommend retaining the clause restricting vessel speed near marine mammals to:

i)          ensure the harbourmaster can take this into account as a relevant matter when authorising boat racing and other events under the bylaw.

ii)         reinforce safe boating practice around marine mammals. Vessel strike of a marine mammal is a danger to both wildlife and boat, particularly smaller vessels.

iii)       enable Auckland Council to provide cross-agency support to the Department of Conservation in protecting marine mammals should incidents occur.

iv)       note a particular concern around the critically endangered Maui dolphins. Its habitat range in Auckland waters include the Manukau Harbour and West Coast where the Department of Conservation may not have staff or resources on the water. Maui are known as an inshore species where there is greater potential conflict with fishing and recreational craft.

g)        request proposed clause 8(1) requires restricted vessel speed within: “200 metres of a marine mammal”.

h)        express its concern about the long-standing disrepair of the Little Huia boat ramp on the northern Manukau for boat launching.

i)          appoint Member Sandra Coney to present the board’s views to the Bylaw Panel on 7 May 2021.

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