Endorsing Business Improvement District (BID) targeted rates for 2021/2022

File No.: CP2021/03768

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To recommend to the Governing Body the setting of the targeted rates for the Dominion Road, The Fringe District (Kingsland), Mt Eden Village and Uptown Business Improvement District (BID) programmes for the 2021/2022 financial year.

2.       Note the previous decisions the local board has made approving the expansion of the Dominion Road Business Association boundary area and recommending the subsequent targeted rate increase.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

3.       Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) are rohe within Tāmaki Makaurau where local business and property owners have agreed to work together to improve their business environment, encourage economic resilience and attract new businesses and customers.

4.       Auckland Council supports business associations operating BID programmes, including Dominion Road Business Association, Kingsland Business Society (trading as The Fringe District), Mt Eden Village Business Association and Uptown Business Association, by collecting a targeted rate from commercial properties within a defined geographic area.  The funds from the targeted rate are then provided by way of a BID grant to the relevant business association.

5.       Under the Auckland Council shared governance arrangements, local boards are allocated several decision-making responsibilities in relation to BID programmes. One of these is to annually recommend BID targeted rates to the Governing Body.

6.       Each business association operating a BID programme sets the BID grant amount at its Annual General Meeting (AGM) when members vote to approve an operational budget for the following financial year. This budget funds the implementation of a business plan that delivers programmes based on each BID’s strategic priorities.

7.       With the support of their members, two of Albert-Eden’s BID-operating business associations – The Fringe District/Kingsland (up 3 per cent to $237,930) and Uptown (up 1.7 per cent to $322,250) – increased their 2021/2022 BID grant amounts from the current financial year while Mt Eden Village ($92,035) opted to maintain the fiscal status quo.

8.       Dominion Road Business Association members voted to expand their BID programme and increase their BID grant sum to $255,000 for 2021/2022. The BID expansion ballot was successful and a separate staff report seeking the local board’s approval for the BID expansion has been included in the 4 May 2021 business meeting agenda.

9.       The business associations operating BID programmes are incorporated societies that are independent of the council. However, to sustain public trust and confidence in the council, there needs to be a balance between the BIDs’ independence and the accountability for monies collected by a public sector organisation.

10.     For the council to be confident that the funds provided to the BID-operating business associations are being used appropriately, the council requires the BIDs to comply with the Business Improvement District (BID) Policy (2016) (Kaupapa Here ā-Rohe Whakapiki Pakihi), known as the BID Policy. 

11.     The council staff regularly monitor compliance with the BID Policy and this report is part of an active risk management programme to minimise inappropriate use of funds.

12.     Staff are satisfied the Dominion Road, Fringe District (Kingsland), Mt Eden Village and Uptown business associations sufficiently comply with the BID Policy.

13.     Staff propose the Albert-Eden Local Board receives this report and recommends to the Governing Body the striking (setting) of the BID targeted rates sought by the four business associations. Note: The Uptown BID boundary overlaps the Waitematā and Albert-Eden Local Board areas.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation

That the Albert-Eden Local Board:

a)      recommend to the Governing Body the striking (setting) of the targeted rates for inclusion in the 10-Year Budget 2021-2031 for the following Business Improvement District (BID) programmes:

i)        $255,000 for Dominion Road Business Association Incorporated.

ii)       $237,930 for Kingsland Business Society Incorporated (The Fringe District).

iii)      $92,035 for Mt Eden Village Business Association Incorporated.

iv)      $322,250 for Uptown Business Association Incorporated.

b)      note the previous decisions of the local board to approve the expansion of the Dominion Road Business Association boundary area (AE/2021/47) and recommend an increase in the Business Improvement District targeted rate grant from $180,000 to $255,000 as of 1 July 2021 (AE/2021/48), given that boundary expansion.

 

Horopaki

Context

BID programmes promote economic well-being and collaboration with the council

14.     According to the Auckland Council Growth Model 2021-2051, Tāmaki Makaurau is projected to include approximately 660,000 more people in the next 30 years. This level of population growth presents challenges and opportunities for Auckland town centres and commercial precincts.

15.       Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) are rohe within Auckland where local business and property owners have agreed to work together, with support from the council, to improve their business environment, promote economic resilience and attract new businesses and customers.

16.     BID programmes provide the opportunity for the council group to partner with business associations, including Dominion Road Business Association, Kingsland Business Society (trading as The Fringe District), Mt Eden Village Business Association and Uptown Business Association, to seize on the opportunities from Auckland’s growth and respond locally to changing economic conditions.

17.     BID programmes encourage collaboration to achieve greater local outcomes. They provide a mechanism to enable local boards to engage with the business sector in local town centres and business areas in a co-ordinated way.

BID programmes provide essential support in building business resilience and aiding economic recovery

18.     The economy continues to be impacted by the flow-on effects from the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown restrictions, affecting both retail-based town centres and commercial precincts.

19.     BID programme-operating business associations provide the local business leadership required to help their members to mitigate some of the economic effects of the pandemic through business resilience and recovery initiatives.

 

BID programmes are funded by a targeted rate on business ratepayers within a set area

20.       BID programmes are funded by a targeted rate applied to all commercially rated properties within a designated area around a town centre or commercial precinct.

21.       Auckland Council supports business associations operating BID programmes by collecting the targeted rates and providing these funds, in their entirety, by way of a BID grant to the relevant business association.

22.       This revenue is paid to the business associations every quarter to provide a regular and sustainable income stream to implement an approved work programme.

 

The BID Policy is the mechanism to ensure accountability for BID targeted rates

23.     Auckland Council’s Business Improvement District (BID) Policy (2016) (Kaupapa Here ā-Rohe Whakapiki Pakihi) ensures accountability for BID targeted rate funding and encourages good governance and programme management.

24.     The policy outlines the principles behind the council’s BID programme; creates the process for establishing, expanding, amalgamating, and disestablishing BIDs; determines rating mechanisms; prescribes operating standards and guidelines; and sets accountability requirements.

 

Diagram A: From calculation to approval, how the BID targeted rate is set.

The business association sets the BID grant amount to deliver its work programme

25.     BID-operating business associations are provided with a rate modelling spreadsheet to help with their budget decision-making. The spreadsheet models any proposed changes to their current BID grant amount and, most importantly, how that influences the BID targeted rate for everyone who will pay it. When considering a change to the BID grant amount, association’s boards (governing committees) must take into account what the local business and property owners can afford.

26.     Each BID-operating business association prepares an annual business plan for the following financial year that will deliver programmes based on their strategic priorities and financial parameters.

27.     The cost of implementing that business plan is set out in an annual budget that the BID’s board agrees will be recommended for approval by the business association membership.

28.     The business association’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) provides the forum where members vote to approve the operational budget and, in doing so, set the requisite BID grant amount for the following financial year.

Local boards are responsible for recommending the targeted rate if a BID complies with the BID Policy

29.     Under the Auckland Council shared governance arrangements, local boards are allocated several decision-making responsibilities in relation to BID programmes. One of these is to annually recommend BID targeted rates to the Governing Body. The local board should recommend the setting of the targeted rate if it is satisfied that the BID is sufficiently complying with the BID Policy.

30.     The Albert-Eden Local Board approved a similar recommendation for the BID programmes last year (resolution number AE/2020/55), as did 17 other local boards that have BID programmes operating in their rohe.

 

The Governing Body sets the targeted rate when it approves the Annual Budget

31.     The recommendation in this report is put into effect with the Governing Body’s approval of the 10-Year Budget 2021-2031 and its striking (setting) of the targeted rates.

32.     In accordance with the provisions of the Local Government Act 2002 and the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002, the Governing Body is authorised to make the final decisions on what BID programme targeted rates, if any, to set in any particular year or property (in terms of the amount and the geographic area to be rated).

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

33.     BID programmes are operated by independent business associations, and their programmes and services are provided according to their members’ stated priorities. In recognition of their independent status, the BID Policy does not prescribe standards for programme effectiveness. That is a matter for the business association members to determine. Staff, therefore, cannot base recommendations on these factors, but only on the policy’s express requirements.

Dominion Road, Mt Eden Village, Kingsland/The Fringe District and Uptown all comply with the BID Policy

34.     Staff are satisfied the Dominion Road, Fringe District (Kingsland), Mt Eden Village and Uptown business associations have sufficiently met the requirements of the BID Policy.

35.     Staff require BID-operating business associations to provide to the council the following documents, and stay in touch with their local board(s) at least once a year:

·   Current strategic plan – evidence of achievable medium- to long-term opportunities.

·   Audited accounts – assurance that the BID-operating business association is managing its members’ BID targeted rate funds responsibly.

·   Annual report on the year just completed – evidence that programmes are addressing priority issues that benefit BID targeted ratepayers.

·   Business plan for the coming year – detailed one-year programme with key performance indicators, based on the strategic plan, to be resourced, measured and achieved.

·   Indicative budget for the following year – Auckland Council’s Annual Budget requires targeted rates to be identified a year in advance to inform the budgeting process which sets all rates.

·   Board Charter – establishes guidelines for effective board governance and positive relationships between the association and its members.

·   Annual Accountability Agreement – certification that these requirements have been met.

·   Programme Agreement – a good faith agreement between each BID-operating business association and the council that sets basic parameters of the council-business association relationship.

·   AGM minutes - provisional minutes of each business association’s 2020 AGM meeting which contain the resolution, voted on by members, confirming the BID grant amount(s) for the 2021/2022 financial year.

 

36.     In addition, BID-operating business associations are required to inform the council staff of progress with other compliance requirements, including:

·   Incorporated Society registration of the business association along with all required documents up to date and filed.

·   Resolving problems or issues, if any, that have an impact on the governance or operation of the BID programme.

 

37.     The BID Policy sets an annual compliance deadline of 10 March for this information to be forwarded to the council. The table below summarises these requirements for the four BIDs within the Albert-Eden Local Board area as of 10 March 2021.

38.     As the Dominion Road, Kingsland/Fringe District, Mt Eden Village and Uptown business associations have sufficiently complied with the BID Policy, staff advise the local board to recommend to the Governing Body the setting of the targeted rates.

Kingsland (The Fringe District) and Uptown increase BID grants, Dominion Road expands, Mt Eden Village maintains status quo

39.     As shown in Table 2 below, three of Albert-Eden’s four BID-operating business associations propose increases to their BID targeted rate for the 2021/2022 financial year.

40.     Uptown (up 1.7 per cent to $322,250) and The Fringe District/Kingsland (up 3 per cent to $237,930) were supported by members to increase their respective BID targeted rates.

41.     Mt Eden Village will maintain its BID targeted rate at the current amount of $92,035 for the 2021/2022 financial year.

42.     Dominion Road Business Association members voted to expand their BID programme and increase their BID grant sum to $255,000 for 2021/2022. The BID expansion ballot was successful and a separate staff report seeking the local board’s approval for the BID expansion was included in the 4 May 2021 business meeting agenda.

43.     The local board approved the expansion of the Dominion Road Business Association boundary area (AE/2021/47) and recommend an increase in the Business Improvement District targeted rate grant from $180,000 to $255,000 as of 1 July (AE/2021/48), given that boundary expansion, at that meeting on 4 May 2021.

44.     Of Tāmaki Makaurau’s 50 BID-operating business associations, 21 increased their targeted rates for 2021/2022 with the percentage increase ranging from 1.7 per cent to 10 per cent. One BID reduced its income after a one-off increase in 2020/2021 to fund America’s Cup-related activities.

Climate impact statement

45.     Through targeted rate-funded advocacy and activities, BID-operating business associations promote and often facilitate environmental sustainability programmes.

46.     From running carbon-reducing ‘shop local’ campaigns to promoting sustainable transport options and championing waste reduction and recovery programmes, there are many examples of BID programmes leading the local business sector’s response to the climate change emergency.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

47.     Advocacy is a key service provided by business associations and those with BID programme-funded personnel are at an advantage. The BIDs ensure the views and ambitions of their members are provided to elected representatives and staff across the council group, including CCOs, on those plans, policies, programmes and projects that impact them.

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

Local impacts and local board views

48.     The local board’s views are most frequently expressed by its appointed representative on the board of each BID-operating business association. This liaison board member (or alternate) can attend BID board meetings to ensure there is a direct link between the council and the operation of the BID programme.

Visions, plans aligned

49.     Albert-Eden’s BIDs and local board share an interest in the local rohe and are ambitious for its future and its people. They also share goals that include economic prosperity, community identity, placemaking and pride.

50.     The four BID programmes tangibly support the aspirations of the Albert-Eden Local Board Plan 2020, highlighted by Outcome 4: A strong local economy with thriving town centres.

Local rohe, local benefit, local funding

51.     Recommending that the Governing Body sets the targeted rates for the Dominion Road, Kingsland (Fringe District), Mt Eden Village and Uptown business associations means that these BID programmes will continue to be funded from targeted rates on commercial properties in their rohe. They will provide services in accordance with their members’ priorities as stated in their strategic plans.

52.     Several local boards, including Albert-Eden, provide additional funding to business associations, however accountability for any grants is set by funding agreements between the local board and the business association. Those contractual obligations are separate from the requirements of the BID Policy and are not covered in this report.

53.     At the 2018 Census, Māori represented 7.1 per cent of the population living in the Albert-Eden Local Board area, compared to 11.5 per cent of AucklandIndividual business associations may, through operating their BID programme, identify opportunities for niche support or development of any Māori business sector in their rohe.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

54.     There are no financial implications for the local board. Targeted rates for BID-operating business associations are raised directly from commercial ratepayers in the district and used by the business association for improvements within that rohe. The council’s financial role is to collect the BID targeted rates and pass them directly to the association every quarter.

55.     The targeted rate is payable by the owners of the commercial properties within the geographic area of the individual BID programmes.  In practice, this cost is often passed on to the business owners who occupy these properties.  This cost may be harder to meet at a time when businesses continue to be financially impacted by the flow-on effects from the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions. 

56.     The council last year extended its Rates Remission and Postponement Policy to commercial property owners as part of the Annual Budget 2020/2021 to help mitigate the impact of the targeted rate on those who are struggling financially. This policy will continue for the 2021/2022 financial year.

57.     If the Governing Body agrees with the BID targeted rates proposed by the business associations, the cost of grants will be met from the existing operational budget.

Risks and mitigations

58.     There are no direct financial risks to the local board or the council that could result from this recommendation to endorse the BID targeted rate for the four business associations.

59.     To sustain public trust and confidence in the council, there needs to be a balance between the independence of the BID-operating business associations and the accountability for monies collected by a public sector organisation.

60.     The rules and obligations of the BID Policy are intended to help minimise the potential for business associations to misuse funds by requiring each BID to plan for their intended use, report on its activities to its members and to have its accounts audited.

61.     The council staff regularly monitor compliance with the BID Policy and this report is part of an active risk management programme to minimise inappropriate use of funds.

62.     Economic disruption caused by the flow-on effects of the COVID-19 lockdowns will continue to be felt in Auckland’s town centres and business precincts. The BID programme is an internationally proven approach to engage and empower local businesses.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

63.     If the board supports this report, it will recommend to the Governing Body that the BID targeted rates be set as part of the 10-Year Budget 2021-2031.

64.     After the 10-Year Budget 2021-2031 is approved, the council collects the targeted rate funds and distributes them in quarterly BID grant payments, effective from 1 July 2021. This will enable the four BIDs to implement programmes that improve the local business environment, support businesses in the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and help address the climate change emergency through sustainability initiatives.

Albert-Eden Local Board Transitional Rates Grants

File No.: CP2021/05981

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To note that the transitional rates grants are ending on the 30th of June 2021.

2.       To decide the next steps for the transitional rates grants budget.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

Overview of transitional rates grants

3.       At the end of the 2017/2018 financial year the council removed the legacy rates remission schemes carried over from the legacy councils. These schemes provided community and sporting groups in some parts of Auckland with property rates relief. In the 2019/2020 financial year community groups located on maunga were also added to the transitional rates grant scheme.

4.       To minimise the impact on the recipients of these schemes, the Governing Body provided transitional rates grants for three years, from the 2018/2019 financial year ending on 30 June 2021. These grants were available automatically on the same terms as the original legacy remission schemes. Recipients of the grants were notified in the 2017/2018 financial year that the scheme would be limited to three years.

5.       Budgets for local grants (including inflation) was allocated to local boards for 10 years so local boards could eventually integrate them into their community support programme. As the transitional rates grants are automatically distributed, local boards do not currently have authority to make decisions on the use of these funds.

6.       An amount of $14,868 was paid to nineteen organisations in the Albert-Eden local board area in the 2020/2021 financial year. These grants paid less than five per cent of the rates for the qualifying property. The limited support provided by these grants means that there will be minimal impact to the recipients from their removal.  Details of these grants are in Attachment A to the report.

7.       With the transitional grants now expiring, the local board must decide how to utilise the associated budget. The local board retains the budget associated with the grants as Asset Based Services (ABS) operational budget (opex) and is available for reallocation through its work programme process.

8.       While the funds remain as Asset Based Services (ABS) budget they can be used to support Local Discretionary Initiatives such as the local board’s community grants programme. Retaining this budget under ABS opex enables this budget to be considered as part of the Governance Framework Review of funding for asset-based services.

9.       If the local board wishes to continue to offer rates assistance this can be done by amending its grants programme.

10.     A letter will be sent to recipients notifying them of the ending of the transitional rates grants. This will direct organisations to the regional and local grants programmes, should they wish to seek additional support in the future.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Albert-Eden Local Board:

a)       note that transitional rates grants are ending 30 June 2021.

b)      note that the local board retains the budget for the transitional rates grants as Asset Based Services (ABS) budget as a separate line item, with discretion over its future allocation. This will enable the grants to be considered as part of the Governance Framework Review on funding for asset-based services.

c)      agree to reallocate the budget through the local work programme process.

 

Horopaki

Context

11.     Transitional rates grants replaced rates remission schemes (Attachment B) for community organisations that were inherited from Franklin District Council (FDC), North Shore City Council (NSC), Rodney District Council (RDC) and Auckland Regional Council (ARC). The district and city council schemes were only available to properties within the relevant former district. The regional scheme was only available to properties not covered by a district or city council scheme.

12.     In 2019, five community groups located on Auckland’s maunga (in Devonport-Takapuna, Howick, Māngere-Ōtāhuhu and Maungakiekie-Tāmaki) were included in the transitional rates scheme. Prior to the crown settlement of the maunga these organisations did not pay rates under a council community lease. The transfer of the maunga to the Maunga Authority resulted in the Authority becoming liable for rates. As a consequence, these organisations are now required to pay rates under their new lease agreements.  

13.     The removal of legacy rates remissions and options for transition were consulted on alongside the 10-year Budget 2018-28.  Following consideration of feedback (Attachment C) from remission recipients, local boards and the general public, the Governing Body decided to remove the legacy remissions, and introduce a transitional grants scheme for three years, ending 30 June 2021. Under the criteria agreed by the Governing Body, grants were automatically available to organisations that:

·        received a legacy rates remission for community organisations in the 2017/2018 financial year

·        continued to meet the criteria and conditions of the original remission scheme.

14.     The amount of support provided by the grants was determined by the original remission scheme. Each scheme offered differing amounts of support. The district and city council schemes remitted 50 to 100 per cent of the rates, while the regional scheme provided five to 10 per cent of the general rates.

Transitional Rates Grants

15.     In the 2020/2021 financial year, 169 local transitional rates grants were made to 104 local organisations. The total value of these grants was $400,000. Of these, 66 grants are less than $500, and are paid as a credit to the rate account for the qualifying property. The remaining 103 grants are paid directly to the bank account of the beneficiary.

16.     The Albert-Eden Local Board hold nineteen transitional rates grants. All these grants are made under the criteria of the Auckland Regional Council scheme. These grants provide less than five per cent of the rates for the qualifying property. Details of Albert-Eden transitional rates grants paid in 2020/2021 are provided in Attachment A.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

17.     All recipients of the rates transition grants were advised that the grants were limited to three years. At the end of the scheme recipients are to be advised of any other options for support, such as local and regional grants programmes.

18.     Staff did not consider continuing the Albert-Eden transitional rates grants in their current form. The existing grants process requires resource from the rates team to calculate grant amounts, and to generate rates credits for lower value grants (grants that were below $500 in the 2020/2021 financial year).  This rates resource is no longer available. The option of establishing the low value grants as direct payments made through the grants team was rejected in 2018, as the grants were too low to justify the administration required.

19.     Staff do not consider removing transitional rates grants will have a material impact for recipients within the Albert-Eden Local Board area. The amount of support currently being provided is minimal in the context of the rates each organisation is paying, and the level of revenue they receive. Recipients will still be able to seek further support through the local board’s grant programme if they meet the grant criteria. (Refer to Attachments A, B and C).

20.     The Albert-Eden Local Board’s current grant programme provides assistance with rates through its Accommodation Fund. Current recipients of transitional rates grants may be eligible for assistance under this scheme.

Local board budgets

21.     The funding for transitional rates is currently held and will remain as Asset Based Services (ABS) budget. The amount of budget allocated to each local board is a function of the value of rates remitted in each local board area under the legacy remission schemes.

22.     This budget can be reallocated through the local board’s work programme process. The funds can be used to support both Asset Based Services and Local Discretionary Initiatives (LDI) operational work programmes.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

23.     The effects of climate change were not a consideration when the existing transitional rates grants were established. Removing of transitional rates grant will not have a material impact on either the recipients or climate change. The local board is able to consider climate impacts of the future use of the funds associated with the grants.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

24.     The decision sought for this report has no identified impacts on other parts of the council group. The views of council-controlled organisations were not required for preparation of this advice.

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

Local impacts and local board views

25.     This report advises the local board of their options now that the transitional grants scheme is ending. The local impacts of the proposal are set out in the report.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

26.     No Māori organisations are receiving funding through the transitional rates grants. Māori land is eligible for support under the Rates remission for Māori freehold land policy. This policy is not under review.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

27.     The financial implications are set out in the report. The Albert-Eden Local Board has $14,868 of transitional rates grants budget that it can reallocate. The grants held by the local board provide minimal support to recipients, and their removal is unlikely to have a significant impact on the recipients

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

28.     Removal of transitional rates grants is unlikely to cause hardship for the organisations receiving transitional rates grants in the Albert-Eden Local Board area. The grants are less than five per cent of the rate liability and a small proportion of revenue.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

29.     A letter will be issued to all recipients of transitional rates grants informing them of the changes and any future options for support as appropriate.

30.     Decisions on future allocation of the funds for transitional rates grants can be made through the local board’s work programme process.

Context

8.       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.

9.       Auckland Council’s Community Grants Policy supports each local board to adopt a grants programme.

10.     The local board grants programme sets out:

·        local board priorities

11.     The Albert-Eden Local Board adopted the Albert-Eden Local Board Community Grants Programme 2020/2021 on 5 May 2020 (Attachment A). The document sets application guidelines for contestable grants.

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

13.     The local board has set a total community grants budget of $140,500 for the 2020/2021 financial year. An additional fund of $15,000(Resolution number AE/2021/33) was allocated to the community grants budget. A total of $105,644.88 was allocated in the previous grant rounds. This leaves a total of $49,855.12 to be allocated in Quick Response Round Three 2020/2021 and Multiboard Round Two 2020/2021.

14.     The Albert-Eden Local Board has set a total accommodation budget of $160,000 for the 2020/2021 financial year, with one grant round.

Climate impact statement

16.     The local board grants programme aims to respond to Auckland Council’s commitment to address climate change by providing grants to individuals and groups with projects that support community climate change action. Community climate action involves reducing or responding to climate change by 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

·        decreasing use of single-occupancy transport options

·        home energy efficiency and community renewable energy generation

·        local tree planting and streamside revegetation

·        education about sustainable lifestyle choices that reduce carbon footprints.

Reserve classification of Rawalpindi Reserve

File No.: CP2021/05686

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To classify the Rawalpindi Reserve, Mount Albert as a recreation reserve under the Reserves Act 1977.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The primary purpose of the Reserves Act 1977 is to ensure conservation values as its first priority and requires all reserves to be classified into one of seven reserve types, these being: nature, scientific, historic, scenic, recreation, local and government purpose.

3.         The Auckland Council proposes to classify the currently unclassified Rawalpindi Reserve as recreation reserve subject to Section 16 (1) of the Reserves Act.

4.         Rawalpindi Reserve is predominantly a flat open green space with gentle rolling hills at the backend of the reserve. The reserve is zoned as open space - informal recreation zone under the Auckland Unitary Plan.

5.       Auckland Council specialists and mana whenua have been consulted on the proposal and support the proposed classification.

6.       This report recommends that the Albert-Eden Local Board exercise its delegated authority under Section 16 (1) of the Reserves Act 1977 to classify Rawalpindi Reserve as classified recreation reserve.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Albert-Eden Local Board:

a)      classify Rawalpindi Reserve, legally described as Lot 32 DP 41107, pursuant to Section 16 (1) of the Reserves Act 1977, as a recreation reserve.

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       The Reserves Act 1977 requires the Council as an administrative body to classify all reserves it manages according to their principal or primary purpose. Classification is a necessary step to enable the administering body to grant third parties rights over reserves.

8.       Classification involves assigning a reserve (or parts of a reserve) to the appropriate classification under the Reserves Act as defined in sections 17 to 23.  When reviewing the land status options, staff consider the following:

·        Why does the council own the land and how was it acquired?

·        What is the primary purpose of the land?

·        What is the status of adjacent parcels of land within the same park?

·        What is the current and likely future main use of the land?

·        What potential does the land have for protection, enhancement and development?

9.       Rawalpindi Reserve, as shown in Attachment A, is an unclassified recreation reserve and as such requires classification.

10.     In December 2020, the Albert-Eden Local Board provided their support for staff to exercise their delegation to approve an application to construct a public wastewater and stormwater line within Rawalpindi Reserve, Mount Albert for a redevelopment at 9 Rawalpindi Street, Mount Albert.

11.     To formalise public wastewater lines on council land, council standard practice is to enter into an agreement to grant easement with the applicant which transfers to Watercare once the pipe is vested.

12.     Classification is a necessary step to enable the council to enter into the agreement to grant the easement.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

13.     Rawalpindi Reserve is legally described as Lot 32 DP 41107 comprising 7360 square meters. Lot 32 was originally vested in council in trust for recreation purposes.

14.     Rawalpindi Reserve is subject to the Reserves Act 1977 and is zoned as Open Space – Informal Recreation Zone under the Auckland Unitary Plan.

15.     As shown in Attachment A, Rawalpindi Reserve is predominantly a flat open green space with gentle rolling hills at the backend of the reserve. Features of the reserve are:

·     pedestrian access from Rawalpindi Street

·     a playground

·     watercare underground assets

·     there are no cultural, heritage or archeological sites located within the reserve

·     there is exiting public stormwater and water infrastructure in the reserve.

Proposed recreation classification

16.     The purpose of recreation reserves as set out in section 17 of the Reserves Act 1977 is to provide for “recreation and sporting activities and the physical welfare and enjoyment of the public, and for the protection of the natural environment and beauty of the countryside, with emphasis on the retention of open spaces and on outdoor recreational activities, including recreational tracks in the countryside”.

17.     Auckland Council staff have considered the values listed in paragraph 8 and consider that classification of the reserve as recreation reserve is most appropriate as:

·     the reserve was acquired for recreation purposes

·     the current use of Rawalpindi Reserve is for recreation purposes

it is an open space that allows formal and informal recreation in an almost totally urbanised area.

·     there are no future plans to change the use of the reserve.

18.     The alternative would be to reclassify the reserve as local purpose (community use) reserve. This would require the Auckland Council to publicly notify and engage with iwi the proposed change of purpose.

19.     Staff consider a recreation classification to be sufficient as ‘recreation’ encompasses a wide meaning including general ‘leisure activities’ and do not consider that it is limited to sports or activities that require physical exertion.

 

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

20.     The proposal to classify Rawalpindi Reserve is not expected to have any climate related impacts as the proposed classification is only administrative in nature.

21.     Rawalpindi Reserve does not sit within the five-year, 100 year and 100 year with 1 metre sea level rise coastal inundation risk zones. 

22.     The reserve is within a flood plain or flooding zone.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

23.       Staff from parks sports and recreation, service and asset planning and legal services were consulted and support the proposed classification of recreation reserve.

24.     The proposed classification has no identified impacts on other parts of the council group. The views of other council-controlled organisations were not required for the preparation of this report’s advice.

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

Local impacts and local board views

25.     In December 2020, the Albert-Eden Local Board provided its support for staff to undertake the classification process for Rawalpindi Reserve.

26.     The application is consistent with and supports the Albert-Eden Local Board Plan 2020 outcomes:

·     Parks and community facilities meet a wide range of needs.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

27.     Prior to any reserve classification proceeding under the Reserves Act, the Auckland Council is required under Section 4 of the Conservation Act 1987 to consult with local iwi and advise of the classification proposed.

28.     Iwi engagement was undertaken between 3 March and 31 March 2021 with the iwi groups identified as having an interest in land in the Albert-Eden Local Board area.

29.     No objections to the classification proposal were received.

30.     The proposed classification will not change the use or values of the reserve and does not affect any of the mana whenua values such as discharges into air or water and is not a significant ecological area

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

31.     Once the classification approval is resolved by the Albert-Eden Local Board, staff will arrange for publication in the Gazette confirming the classification.  All the costs will be met by Community Facilities.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

32.     The Reserves Act 1977 requires that council classify all unclassified reserves which are either held or managed by the council. Council is complying with its statutory requirements in classifying Rawalpindi Reserve.

33.     The council will be complying with its statutory requirements to classify the reserve. This will allow council to grant any third-party rights such as licences, leases or easements in the future.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

34.     Subject to the Albert-Eden Local Board approval, staff will formalise the classification through a gazette notice that will be published to record the classification of Rawalpindi Reserve.

Local Board Views on Plan Change 60 - Open Space (2020) and Other Rezoning Matters

File No.: CP2021/05962

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To invite the local board to provide its views on the council initiated Plan Change 60 – Open Space (2020) and Other Rezoning Matters (PC60).

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       Decision-makers on a plan change to the Auckland Unitary Plan must consider local boards’ views on the plan change, if the relevant local boards choose to provide their views.

3.       Each local board has a responsibility to communicate the interests and preferences of people in its area on Auckland Council policy documents, including plan changes. A local board can present local views and preferences when that view is expressed by the whole local board.[1]

4.       On 28 January 2021, Auckland Council notified Plan Change 60. Submissions closed on 1 March 2021. The plan change includes 105 sites (in some cases, a site comprises more than one lot) and aims to rezone land to:

(a)  recognise land recently vested or acquired as open space

(b)  correct zoning errors or anomalies (including rezoning land to better reflect its use)

(c)  facilitate Panuku Development Auckland’s (Panuku) land rationalisation and disposal process or

(d)  facilitate Kāinga Ora’s and Auckland Council redevelopment of certain neighbourhoods.

5.       One hundred and six submissions have been received on the proposed plan change. The vast majority of these oppose Panuku’s rezoning and land disposal. In summary there are 15 submissions in support of the plan change, four in support but seeking amendments, 85 in opposition and two out of scope.

6.       No iwi authority has made a submission in support or opposition to Plan Change 60.

7.       This report is the mechanism for the local board to resolve and provide its views on Plan Change 60 should it wish to do so. Staff do not recommend what view the local board should convey.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Albert-Eden Local Board:

a)      provide local board views on Plan Change 60 - Open Space (2020) and Other Rezoning Matters.

b)      appoint a local board member to speak to the local board views at a hearing on Plan Change 60.

c)      delegate authority to the chairperson of the Albert-Eden Local Board to make a replacement appointment in the event the local board member appointed in resolution b) is unable to attend the plan change hearing.

Horopaki

Context

8.       Each local board is responsible for communicating the interests and preferences of people in its area regarding the content of Auckland Council’s strategies, policies, plans, and bylaws. Local boards provide their views on the content of these documents. Decision-makers must consider local boards’ views when deciding the content of these policy documents.[2]

9.       If the local board chooses to provide its views, the planner includes those views in the hearing report. Local board views are included in the analysis of the plan change, along with submissions.

10.     If appointed by resolution, local board members may present the local board’s views at the hearing to commissioners, who decide on the plan change.

11.     This report provides an overview of the proposed plan change to the Auckland Unitary Plan (AUP), and a summary of submissions’ key themes.

12.     The report does not recommend what the local board should convey, should the local board decide to convey its views on plan change 60. The planner must include any local board views in the evaluation of the plan change. The planner cannot advise the local board as to what its views should be, and then evaluate those views.

13.     The key theme from submissions is opposition to the proposed rezonings relating to Kāinga Ora/Auckland Council redevelopment and Panuku’s land rationalisation and disposal. Attachment A identifies the land parcels that are the subject of submissions.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

14.     Plan Change 60 affects land across the Auckland region.

15.     The purpose of the proposed plan change is to rezone land to either:

(a)  recognise land recently vested or acquired as open space

(b)  correct zoning errors or anomalies (including rezoning land to better reflect its use)

(c)  facilitate Panuku’s land rationalisation and disposal process or

(d)  facilitate Kāinga Ora’s and Auckland Council redevelopment of certain neighbourhoods.

16.     The Section 32 Report and details of the plan change are available from the council’s website at Plan Change 60. The council’s planner, and other experts, will evaluate and report on:

·   section 32 Report that accompanies the plan change

·   submissions and

·   the views and preferences of the local board, if the local board passes a resolution.

17.     Submissions were made by 106 people/organisations as outlined below.

Support for rezoning or further information required:

·   1337 Whangaparaoa Road, Army Bay (Map 104).

19.     The key reasons for submission opposing the plan change include:

·   opposed to the rezoning of pocket parks – they are needed to support intensification and for social and environmental benefits

·   loss of valuable reserve land

·   few parks in the area

·   significant negative effect on enjoyment of our neighbourhood/ adverse effects on property and locality

·   park has significant cultural heritage associations and natural value

·   contradicts Auckland Unitary Plan heritage policies

·   inadequate public notification

·   green areas needed in more intensive housing areas

·   contrary to climate change/greenhouse effects – green spaces are needed for low carbon Auckland Council

·   inconsistent with Auckland Unitary Plan objectives and policies

·   park has trees which will be lost with rezoning and development

·   site is an overland flow path and flood plain

·   property values will be adversely affected

·   loss of walkway and critical linkage

·   sale of spaces is desperate revenue gathering/selling due to Covid is short-sighted

·   subsequent building will severely impact on sunlight and amenities of adjoining sites

·   contrary to Auckland Council’s declaration of a climate emergency, open space network plans, National Policy Statement – Urban Development – well functioning environments, open space provision policy, Auckland Plan 2050, the Urban Ngahere Strategy

·   site is a Significant Ecological Area and part of a wildlife corridor and refuge

·   inconsistent with Local Boards goal of increasing tree canopy.

20.     Information on individual submissions, and the summary of all decisions requested by submitters, is available from council’s website: Plan Change 60

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

21.     Several submissions raised specific climate concerns. These relate to the loss of locally accessible open space and the associated vegetation, particularly mature trees.

22.     The council’s climate goals as set out in Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan are:

·   to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to reach net zero emissions by 2050 and 

·   to prepare the region for the adverse impacts of climate change.

23.     The local board could consider if Plan Change 60:

·   will reduce, increase or have no effect on Auckland’s overall greenhouse gas emissions (e.g. does it encourage car dependency, enhance connections to public transit, walking and cycling or support quality compact urban form)

·   prepare the region for the adverse impacts of climate change. That is, does the proposed plan change elevate or alleviate climate risks (e.g. flooding, coastal and storm inundation, urban heat effect, stress on infrastructure).

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

24.     Panuku is a council-controlled organisation that resulted from the merging of Auckland Council Property Limited and Waterfront Auckland. One of the roles of Panuku is the release of land or properties that can be better utilised by others.

25.     In conjunction with Auckland Council’s Stakeholder and Land Advisory team, Panuku have identified 26 council-owned parcels of land which are either surplus to requirements or they are part of a Panuku regeneration project (i.e. a series of projects and initiatives, designed to kickstart the transformation process and bring about changes that will help centres prosper in the future). Those parcels considered to be surplus to requirements have been cleared for sale by Auckland Council.

26.     Auckland Council’s decision to dispose of or sell the land parcels is separate from the zoning of the land. Zoning is a method used to implement the Auckland Unitary Plan’s objectives and policies and to achieve the purpose of the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA). The merit of any rezoning of land (from open space to residential or business) therefore must be assessed against the purpose of the RMA and the relevant Auckland Unitary Plan objectives and policies. Other relevant considerations which will be considered in the section 42A hearing report include the Auckland Plan 2050, Auckland’s Climate Plan and the Urban Ngahere Strategy and open space network plans.

27.     Auckland Transport made a submission in relation to the rezoning of 1337 Whangaparaoa Road, Army Bay. The key matter raised is the traffic effects of rezoning the Whangaparaoa Golf course from Residential – Single House to Open Space – Sport and Active Recreation zone.

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

Local impacts and local board views

28.     The plan change affects sites throughout the Auckland region and feedback is therefore sought from all local boards.

29.     Factors the local board may wish to consider in formulating its view:

·   interests and preferences of people in local board area

·   well-being of communities within the local board area

·   local board documents, such as the local board plan and local board agreement

·   responsibilities and operation of the local board.

30.     A memo was sent to all local boards on 27 October 2020 outlining the proposed changes, the rational for them and the likely plan change timeframes.

31.     This report is the mechanism for obtaining formal local board views. The decision-maker will consider local board views, if provided, when deciding on the plan change.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

32.     If the local board chooses to provide its views on Plan Change 60 it may also comment on matters that may be of interest or importance to Māori generally. In the 2018 census, approximately 11.5 per cent (or 181,194) of the Auckland region’s population identified as Māori.

33.     Plans and Places consulted with all iwi authorities when it prepared Plan Change 60. On 27 October 2020, a memorandum outlining the draft proposed plan change was sent to all Auckland’s 19 mana whenua entities and the Tupuna Maunga Authority as required under the RMA.

34.     Comments were received from:

·   Ngāti Manuhiri – asking for an extension of time to 11 December 2020 to enable a discussion with their governance arm

·   Waikato Tainui – they will support manawhenua to take the lead role on such plan changes

·   Tupuna Maunga Authority – their interest is those sites that are within Height Sensitive Areas or regionally Significant Volcanic Viewshafts.

35.     No iwi authorities made a formal submission.

36.     The hearing report will include analysis of Part 2 of the RMA which requires that all persons exercising RMA functions shall take into account the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi/Te Tiriti o Waitangi.[3] The plan change does not trigger an issue of significance as identified in the Schedule of Issues of Significance and Māori Plan 2017.[4]

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

37.     Panuku’s land rezoning and rationalisation (26 land parcels) is part of the Auckland Council’s financial recovery.

38.     The draft Long-term Plan 2021-2031 proposes the selling of surplus properties and reinvesting the proceeds into critical infrastructure for the city. Over the next three years, Auckland Council is seeking to increase these sales to return $70 million a year to invest in Auckland.

39.     The 26 land parcels that are part of this plan change form part of the $70 million return sought.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

40.     There is a risk that the local board will be unable to provide its views and preferences on the plan change if it doesn’t pass a resolution. This report provides:

·   the mechanism for the local board to express its views and preferences if it so wishes

·   the opportunity for a local board member to speak at a hearing.

41.     If the local board chooses not to pass a resolution at this business meeting, these opportunities are forgone.

42.     The power to provide local board views regarding the content of a plan change cannot be delegated to individual local board member(s).[5] This report enables the whole local board to decide whether to provide its views and, if so, to determine what matters those views should include.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

43.     The planner will include, and report on, any resolution(s) of the local boards in the Section 42A hearing report. The local board member appointed to speak to the local board’s views will be informed of the hearing date and invited to the hearing for that purpose.

44.     The planner will advise the local boards of the decision on the plan change request by memorandum.

Economic Development Action Plan: Draft for feedback

File No.: CP2021/05965

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek local board feedback on the draft Economic Development Action Plan: Council’s role in Auckland’s recovery 2021-2024.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The council organisation and council-controlled organisations have worked collaboratively to develop the draft Economic Development Action Plan. This plan defines and agrees, for the next three years, the council family’s economic objectives and priorities and determines a coordinated course of action. The plan is limited to actions that are within the remit of council and council-controlled organisation (CCO) activities.

3.       The draft plan aligns with the 10-year budget and will inform the work programmes of relevant council family departments. The work is supported by the chief executives of council and all substantive council-controlled organisations.

4.       The draft plan outlines detailed actions within six areas of focus (‘workstreams’) as outlined in Attachment A. It reflects the guiding principles of transitioning towards a regenerative and low carbon economy, supporting economic opportunities for Māori, and responding to our communities of greatest need.

5.       There will be targeted engagement on the draft plan, including with iwi, advisory panel members and business groups. Feedback will be sought until 14 June 2021.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Albert-Eden Local Board:

a)      receive the draft Economic Development Action Plan: Council’s role in Auckland’s recovery 2021-2024.

b)      provide feedback by 14 June 2021 for consideration in the final draft Economic Development Action Plan: Council’s role in Auckland’s recovery 2021-2024.

Horopaki

Context

6.       In August 2020, the CCO Review Panel delivered its report alongside 64 recommendations which were endorsed in full by the Governing Body. The review stated that council and all substantive council-controlled organisations (CCOs) should together define the economic outcomes for Auckland and agree on how to achieve and measure them. The review also acknowledged the need for better coordination and definition of responsibilities for local economic development within the council family. The Economic Development Action Plan forms part of council’s response to that review.

7.       The plan is not a long-term strategy and does not replace the Economic Development Strategy 2012. The priorities and focus over the next three years, however, consider direction from council’s existing strategies i.e., the Auckland Plan 2050, Economic Development Strategy 2012, Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan and Kia Ora Tāmaki Makaurau: Council’s Māori Outcomes Framework.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

8.       Comprehensive background work to support the development of the action plan has been completed by the Chief Economist Unit (CEU), the Auckland Plan Strategy and Research Department (APSR) and Auckland Unlimited. This includes a report from the CEU providing a profile of Auckland’s economy over the last 10 years, the impact of Covid-19 on the Auckland economy, and the main roadblocks to recovery. The same report also identified areas where the council group can have a material impact on economic development. Key areas are:

·   assets

·   procurement

·   land use and zoning

·   regulatory processes

·   travel network

·   town centres

·   pricing

·   skills and investment attraction

·   tourism attraction

·   social support services

·   coordination of responses through partnerships.

9.       There has also been an extensive review of plans and strategies across the council and CCOs to identify common economic development themes. These were: innovation and technology, Māori economy, regenerative, resilient, low carbon economy, workforce transition, competitive high-value sectors, local economic development, infrastructure, and culture and creativity.

10.     This background work formed the basis for six workstreams:

·   Destination Tāmaki Makaurau: attracting people and investment

·   Local Tāmaki Makaurau: enabling thriving local economies

·   Skilled Tāmaki Makaurau: supporting quality jobs and skill development

·   Future Tāmaki Makaurau: preparing businesses for the future

·   Enabled Tāmaki Makaurau: infrastructure enabling economic development

·   Enabled Tāmaki Makaurau: regulations that enable economic development.

11.     Each workstream has both council and CCO staff representation. These workstreams have developed a set of actions with responsibilities and timeframes as detailed in this draft plan. A monitoring framework will be developed to ensure roles, responsibilities and accountabilities of council and each CCO are clearly defined as they relate to the actions in the draft plan.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

12.     Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan has provided direction to the development of the draft plan, aspiring to a more resilient economy that is regenerative, inclusive, local and enables Aucklanders to thrive.

13.     The draft action plan has embedded the guiding principle of ‘transitioning to a regenerative and low carbon economy’ into each of its six workstreams. The development of actions is underpinned by kaitiakitanga and considers how resources used give back to nature and increase value through reuse and renewal. Where applicable, actions broadly encourage a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions, low carbon products and services, climate innovation, and less dependency on natural resources.

14.     The actions presented in this draft action plan will go through a further climate impact assessment using tools developed by the Chief Sustainability Office. The results of this assessment will be incorporated into the final plan.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

15.     The draft plan responds to the CCO review recommendation for council and all CCOs to together define the economic outcomes for Auckland and agree on how to achieve and measure them. The actions in the draft plan will be shared and accountabilities of council and each CCO well defined. Some CCOs will have a more active role than others.

16.     The scope and development of the Economic Development Action Plan has been agreed to through the council and CCO Chief Executives’ group. This group is updated with progress on the plan as appropriate. The project team includes a representative and contribution from each CCO. 

17.     The scope of the plan is limited to actions that are within the remit of council and CCO activities. A review and discussion document of the council group’s levers that materially contribute to economic development formed the basis for this draft plan (refer to Attachment B).

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

Local impacts and local board views

18.     Each workstream of the plan will have a local impact, acknowledging the interdependency of local economies and the regional economy. The draft plan includes the focus area ‘Local Tāmaki Makaurau: enabling thriving local economies’ and has been informed by the recent local board plans’ local economic priorities.

19.     The Local Tāmaki Makaurau workstream seeks to clarify what the Auckland Council group will do to support the local economies of Auckland. This includes setting out the roles that each part of the group plays in delivering actions, while also setting the foundations to help the group identify the economic places (sub-regional and local) of Auckland and deliver outcomes at the local level.

20.     A memo was distributed on 17 February 2021 to inform local board members of the development of council’s Economic Development Action Plan 2021-2024 and to outline the process for local board feedback to the plan. At the request of the local board chairpersons, the draft plan will be provided at all local board business meetings in May 2021 with written feedback by formal resolution provided to the project leads by 14 June 2021.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

21.     Kia Ora Tāmaki Makaurau has provided direction to the development of the draft plan, in particular, the Kia ora te Umanga mahi objective of supporting economic opportunities for Māori businesses and iwi organisations. The draft plan has also considered direction from the Auckland Plan 2050, the Kaitiaki Forum’s strategic plan and the Independent Māori Statutory Board’s Issues of Significance (2017) as they relate to Māori economic development.

22.     The draft action plan has embedded the guiding principle of ‘supporting economic opportunities for Māori’ into each of its six workstreams. The development of actions will consider partnership opportunities with mana whenua and mataawaka, a focus on equity and addressing systemic barriers, and identifying new economic opportunities for Māori.

23.     The project team have communicated with iwi from the commencement of the project to determine and initiate the preferred process of engagement for each iwi. This draft plan will be sent to all iwi for input and feedback through to 14 June 2021.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

24.     The scope of the Economic Development Action Plan states that actions will be funded within the existing 10-year Budget 2021-2031 and therefore, no additional funding is required. The draft plan identifies some actions that rely on external funding sources and partnerships.

25.     At the advice of the finance division, budget alignment is demonstrated in the draft plan at both the group of activity and CCO / council directorate level.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

26.     The draft plan outlines actions that require a commitment from the responsible directorate to include in their work programmes and within their existing budgets. The monitoring framework will include regular progress reporting to ensure effective implementation of the action plan.

27.     This action plan is an internal document, outlining work to be done within the remit of council and its CCOs. The content of the plan builds on earlier consultation undertaken in the development of key strategies that have provided direction. Input and feedback for this action plan has therefore been targeted to key groups.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

28.     The draft plan will be distributed to the key groups that have been engaged from the commencement of the project. Feedback will be considered until 14 June 2021.

29.     The final Economic Development Action Plan: Council’s role in Auckland’s recovery 2021-24 and its monitoring framework will be presented to the Parks, Arts, Community and Events committee on 8 July 2021 for adoption.
