2          Apologies

 

At the close of the agenda no apologies had been received.

 

3          Declaration of Interest

 

Members are reminded of the need to be vigilant to stand aside from decision making

When a conflict arises between their role as a member and any private or other external

interest they might have.

 

The Auckland Council Code of Conduct for Elected Members (the Code) requires elected

members to fully acquaint themselves with, and strictly adhere to, the provisions of

Auckland Council’s Conflicts of Interest Policy. The policy covers two classes of conflict of

interest:

 

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

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

 

The Office of the Auditor General has produced guidelines to help elected members

understand the requirements of the Local Authority (Member’s Interest) Act 1968. The

guidelines discuss both types of conflicts in more detail and provide elected members with

practical examples and advice around when they may (or may not) have a conflict of        interest.

 

Copies of both the Auckland Council Code of Conduct for Elected Members and the Office

of the Auditor General guidelines are available for inspection by members upon request.

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

 

 

4          Confirmation of Minutes

 

That the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board:

a)         confirm the ordinary minutes of its meeting, held on Tuesday, 20 April 2021, as true and correct.

 

 

 

5          Leave of Absence

 

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

 

6          Acknowledgements

 

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

 

7          Petitions

 

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

 

8          Deputations

 

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

 

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

 

9          Public Forum

 

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

 

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

 

10        Extraordinary Business

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Decision-making responsibilities policy

File No.: CP2021/04916

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To endorse the draft decision-making responsibilities policy for inclusion in the Long-term Plan (LTP).

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Governing Body is required by legislation to allocate decision-making responsibility for the non-regulatory activities of Auckland Council to either itself or local boards. This allocation is outlined in the Decision-Making Responsibilities of Auckland Council’s Governing Body and Local Boards Policy (the policy) that is published in each Long-term Plan (LTP) and Annual Plan.

3.       The policy also records delegations given to date by the Governing Body to local boards and provides a list of statutory responsibilities that are conferred upon both governance arms.

4.       An internal review of the policy was undertaken in early 2021 and considered by the Joint Governance Working Party at its meeting on 22 March 2021. The review outlined some proposed changes to the policy, as well as some recommendations on how to take forward other issues that do not yet lend themselves to a policy amendment. The recommendations adopted by the Joint Governance Working Party have informed the proposed changes in the draft policy (refer to Attachment A of the agenda report).

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board:

a)      endorse the draft Decision-making Responsibilities of Auckland Council’s Governing Body and Local Boards Policy as presented as Attachment A to the agenda report.

Horopaki

Context

5.       The Governing Body and local boards obtain their decision-making responsibilities from three sources:

·   statutory responsibilities - functions and powers directly conferred by the Local Government (Auckland Council) Act 2009 (LGACA) 2009;

·   non-regulatory activities that are allocated to local boards and the Governing Body in accordance with a set of principles (section 17(2) LGACA); and

·   delegations – these can be regulatory or non-regulatory responsibilities; the Governing Body has delegated some of its responsibilities to local boards.

Allocation of non-regulatory responsibilities

6.       The primary purpose for the policy is to set out the allocation of non-regulatory decision-making responsibilities. However, it incorporates other sources of decision-making authority for completeness and context, including a register of key delegations which have been given by the Governing Body to local boards.

Joint Governance Working Party (JGWP)

7.       To facilitate a review by the JGWP, staff provided an analysis of issues raised, mainly by local boards, and proposed recommendations in relation to those issues. The report containing this advice can be found in the record of the Joint Governance Working Party Meeting, 23 March 2021.

8.       The JGWP carefully considered the issues that were in scope for the review as well as the staff advice and raised some questions and issues that staff are exploring further. These are discussed in the advice below.

9.       This report only covers the discussions relating to the recommended changes to the policy. A memo will be provided to each local board providing a summary of the issues considered in the review and outlining a staff response to specific issues, if any, that individual local boards raised in their feedback.

10.     Following their review, the JGWP agreed as follows:

That the Joint Governance Working Party:

(a)         note the feedback from local boards on the decision-making responsibilities policy

(b)        request the following amendments to the decision-making responsibilities policy:

(i)         request that staff report with urgency that local boards can be delegated approval for developing and approving area plans, provided the governing body can make its views known on such plans

(ii)         that the local boards can take responsibilities for decision making over drainage reserves provided such decisions are constrained to those that will not negatively affect the drainage functions and stormwater network operations.

(iii)        provide for local boards to tailor locally delivered projects within regional environmental programmes, subject to advice from staff on the types of projects that can be tailored

(iv)        provide explicit reference to Health and Safety obligations and requirements that local boards and Governing Body must consider in their decisions

(v)        local boards can object to a special liquor licence and this be enabled by an appropriate administrative process.

(c)    note the recommendations that the next phase of the Waiheke pilot should consider some of the issues that have been raised including:

(i)         trialing delegations from Auckland Transport on decision-making relating to street trading for roads and beaches, placemaking and urban design decisions

(ii)         Identifying opportunities and non-regulatory decision-making elements in relation to town centres that the Governing Body can consider when making allocation

(d)   recommend that Auckland Transport consider if there are types of community activities that can take place on road reserves without impacting the roading network.

(e)    Request staff scope out a review of the role of the governing body in regional governance within the shared governance model of Auckland Council, taking into considerations the recommendation of the CCO Review.

The following members requested that their dissenting votes be recorded as follows:

Cr A Filipaina against e)

Member R Northey against e)

The following members requested that their abstention be recorded as follows

Cr S Henderson against (b)(i)

Cr R Hills against (b)(iii)

Analysis and advice

Request for further advice or implementation support

Area plans

11.     Local boards requested that the responsibility for adoption of area plans, which is currently allocated to the Governing Body, be assigned to them. This can be done through allocating the responsibility to local boards or through the Governing Body delegating this allocated responsibility to local boards to exercise on their behalf.

12.     Staff have considered this request and advised the JGWP as follows.

·   Area plans are an important tool in council’s spatial planning framework. It is used to strategically plan an area usually for the purpose of seeking and/or supporting changes to the Unitary Plan. The responsibility for the Unitary Plan rests with the Governing Body.

·   Area plans, as a stand-alone non-regulatory tool and decision, appear ‘local’ in nature given their focus on local planning which is a responsibility allocated to local boards.

·   However, area plans also meet the exceptions in section 17(2) of the LGACA: specifically that for these decisions to be effective, they require alignment or integration with other decision-making responsibilities that sit with the Governing Body. These include plan changes and amendments to the Unitary Plan, infrastructure prioritisation and regional investment.

·   During the Waiheke pilot, the Waiheke Local Board sought a delegation to sign off the Waiheke Local Area Plan. This delegation was granted with conditions that included a requirement to ensure the involvement of a member of the Independent Maori Statutory Board. This suggests delegations on a case-by-case basis can be possible and provides an alternative route if a standing delegation is not given to local boards.

13.     The JGWP carefully considered the advice of staff but were not all in agreement with it. Members had strong views about the need to empower local boards in their local planning role and have requested staff to reconsider their advice and to explore the risks and possible risk mitigation of enabling local boards to adopt the plans through a delegation from the Governing Body.

14.     Whilst the practice already ensures high involvement of local boards in the development of these plans, it was the view of the JGWP members that delegating the adoption decision with relevant parameters is more empowering for local boards. JGWP members felt that this would enable local boards to make local planning decisions that are aligned with their local board plan aspirations and other community priorities without requiring further approval from the Governing Body, whose members may not be as familiar with these local priorities.

15.     JGWP members agreed that area plans, while local, often require funding and alignment to other plans that are developed by the Governing Body. Keeping the responsibility and accountability allocated to the Governing Body ensures the decision continues to sit at the right level but that this does not necessarily need to be exercised by the Governing Body on all occasions.

16.     The JGWP have requested advice from staff on how to pursue a Governing Body delegation. Staff will seek to provide further advice to the JGWP. If the JGWP considers recommending a delegation from the Governing Body on this issue, staff will present the request to the Governing Body for consideration. A delegation can be given at any time and it will have immediate effect.

Special liquor licence administration process for notifying local boards

17.     One of the issues raised in the local board feedback is special liquor license applications. On this matter, the request was for clarification that local boards can object, as per the delegation from Governing Body granting the ability to make objections under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012. Elected members perceived this is not being enabled as notifications on these licences are not proactively shared with them in the same way that information about other applications (on, off and club licences) are.

18.     The JGWP has recommended that this be clarified in the policy and request that staff enable notifications to be sent to local board where public consultation is required for special licence applications.

Proposed changes to the Allocated decision-making responsibilities (part c)

Local purpose (drainage) reserves

19.     During discussions with local boards on the scope of the review, many local boards raised concerns about the interpretation of the policy.

20.     An example raised by Upper Harbour Local Board demonstrated the need for clarity, especially in areas where decision-making authority allocated to both governance arms overlap. During the development of the board’s local park management plans, staff had advised that those reserves that are primarily dedicated to stormwater drainage should be treated as part of the stormwater network. This advice appeared to suggest that local boards do not hold any decision-making over a subset of local parks since it is the Governing Body that is responsible for management of the stormwater network.

21.     Through discussions with staff as part of this review, the advice has been revised. Staff accept this is an example of where there is clear overlap in activities and decision-making responsibilities. Staff will need to work closely with local boards to develop protocols that enable decision-making by the Governing Body on stormwater issues to be exercised efficiently and effectively.

22.     The JGWP were supportive of the staff recommendation to clarify that the exercise of decision-making in relation to stormwater network and how it functions must be properly enabled on local parks. This is done by acknowledging that these considerations and decisions about the stormwater network constrains local board decision-making over local parks (or parts of local parks) that have a stormwater drainage function. This clarity will also help staff to understand that the local board continues to retain the decision-making responsibility over all other activities of local parks.

Role of local boards in environmental programmes and grants

23.     Some local boards feel the current policy wording and ways of working does not provide a meaningful role for local boards on regional environmental issues, specifically regional environmental programmes. These local boards have also requested that local boards be enabled to monitor the progress of any locally-delivered projects (funded by regional environmental programmes) through the established work programme reporting mechanism.

24.     Local board input into regional environmental programmes is at the policy and/or programme approval stage. The approved programme direction provides sufficient guidance to staff, acting under delegation from the Governing Body, when developing an implementation plan and prioritising projects for delivery.

25.     At the operational level, where identified priorities and project ideas are to be delivered in local parks or other key locations within the local board area, local board input is sought by staff at workshops. This is to ensure locally delivered projects are tailored to local circumstances. While it is possible to capture this current practice in the policy, this needs to be done in a way that continues to enable relevant local boards to add value to projects without too many administrative requirements. A member of the JGWP also expressed concern about signalling all projects can be tailored to local circumstances as this is not the case.

Other changes

Health and Safety – parameters for decision-making

26.     Council decisions need to take account of Health and Safety considerations, as well as reflecting a shared approach to risk.

27.     Staff advise that Health and Safety considerations should be explicit in the policy to protect the council from liability. The JGWP supports this recommendation and a reference to complying with health and safety legislation and plans has been inserted in the policy.

Issues relating to delegations

28.     The review considered requests for new delegations or additional support to implement delegations given to local boards. Some of these were requests for delegation from Auckland Transport.

29.     The review considered that before recommending or agreeing any new delegation, the delegator, whether it be Governing Body or Auckland Transport, must first weigh the benefits of reflecting local circumstances and preferences (through a delegation) against the importance and benefits of using a single approach in the district (through itself retaining the responsibility, duty, or power concerned).

30.     Staff advised the JGWP to recommend that the Waiheke pilot (part of the Governance Framework Review) which is about to enter another phase, expands to include a trial of delegated decision-making on key issues raised in this review. They include several issues that relate to Auckland Transport, namely street trading and town centre/urban design. Piloting these delegations can help Auckland Transport to identify any practical issues that need to be considered before a formal delegation to all local boards can be given on any of the issues identified.

Other issues

JGWP resolution on role of governing body

31.     Some members of the JGWP expressed concerns about what they perceived to be a heavy focus on local board responsibilities.

32.     Both sets of governors were invited to identify issues to be examined in the review. The Governing Body, in workshop discussions, did not identify any major issues that it wanted to review but was open to including any issues raised by local boards. As a result, almost all of the issues raised were suggested by local boards and the majority of them relate to their areas of decision-making responsibility. This may have given the impression of a bias towards examining the role of local boards.

33.     To address this concern, the JGWP requested that staff scope a review of the role of the governing body. Staff will provide advice to the JGWP in response to this request at an upcoming meeting.

Escalation process for any disputes relating to the Allocation of decision-making responsibilities for non-regulatory activities

34.     The process for resolving disputes relating to allocation of non-regulatory responsibilities (including disputes over interpretation of the allocation table) will vary depending on the issue at hand. The chart below outlines the basic escalation process.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

35.     This report relates to a policy and does not have any quantifiable climate impacts.

36.     Decisions that are taken, in execution of this policy, will likely have significant climate impacts. However, those impacts will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and appropriate responses will be identified as required.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

37.     Council departments support and implement decisions that are authorised by this policy.

38.     Feedback received to date from some departments reinforces the need for guidance notes to aid interpretation of the allocations in the decision-making policy. This work will be done in consultation with departments.

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

Local impacts and local board views

39.     This report canvasses issues that had been raised by local boards and focuses on those issues that warrant an amendment to the policy.

40.     All other issues raised by local boards in their feedback were canvassed in the staff advice that formed part of the review. This information is available to all local boards.

41.     Staff have also prepared responses to specific issues raised by local boards and have shared this information in a memo.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

42.     There are no decisions being sought in this report that will have a specific impact on Māori.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

43.     There are no financial implications directly arising from the information contained in this report.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

44.     The are no identified risks other than timeframes. The Governing Body will be adopting this policy in June as part of the long-term plan. Local board feedback is requested in early May in order to provide time to collate and present this to the Governing Body for consideration.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

45.     Staff will prepare guidance notes to aid the interpretation of the decision-making policy following its adoption.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board:

a)      receive consultation feedback on the proposed Devonport-Takapuna Local Board priorities and activities for 2021/2022 and key advocacy initiatives for 2021-2031

b)      receive consultation feedback on regional topics in the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 from people and organisations based in the Devonport-Takapuna local board area

c)      approve its advocacy initiatives for inclusion (as an appendix) to its 2021/2022 Local Board Agreement

d)      provide input on regional topics in the proposed 10-year Budget 2021-2031 to the Governing Body.

 

Horopaki

Context

14.     Each financial year Auckland Council must have a local board agreement (as agreed between the Governing Body and the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board) for each local board area. This local board agreement reflects priorities in the Devonport-Takapuna   Local Board Plan 2020 through local activities, budgets, levels of service, performance measures and advocacy initiatives.

15.     The local board agreements 2021/2022 will form part of the Auckland Council’s 10-year Budget 2021-2031.

16.     Auckland Council publicly consulted from 22 February to 22 March 2021 to seek community views on the proposed 10-year Budget 2021-2031, as well as local board priorities and proposed advocacy initiatives to be included in the local board agreement 2021/2022.

17.     The consultation also asked submitters to comment on five key questions

18.     The proposed investment package including saving, increasing debt levels in the short term. Rates increase and the divestment of surplus assets.

19.     Due to the impacts of the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic, significant pressure has been placed upon the council’s financial position. This has created significant flow on effects for the council’s proposed 10-year Budget 2021-2031, in particular in the first three years.

Parks, sport and recreation

42 comments (14% of responses).

 

Cleaning and maintenance of parks and parks assets like playgrounds, sports fields and walkways is very important.

Those who use sports facilities should contribute to the cost of maintaining them

The parks should be available for passive recreation, particularly as development intensifies

12 comments (4% of responses).

 

 

The arts are important for creating community cohesiveness and connectedness

Concern that at the moment some activities or services are more nice-to-haves than necessities

Arts and creative endeavours would define the area as a creative destination

Local Planning

118 comments (38% of responses).

 

Invest in infrastructure that will support our environment and make our public spaces safe and attractive

More investment required in water infrastructure

More consideration about the ability of existing infrastructure to support more dwellings as there is concern that there has not been sufficient planning or investment to do this.

 

Economic development

4 comments (1% of responses).

 

Local businesses must be helped to recover from the effects of COVID-19

Events support local businesses and bring visitors to the area.

Town centres need investment, but work must be carried out in as short a time frame as possible

Support for groups that manage environmental pests, both plant and animal

 

Governance and support

76 comments (25% of responses).

 

Need more cohesion on decision making

Local Board should focus on priority issues like Lake Road, water quality and the public transport services.

Hard decisions must be taken regarding spending priorities

Too many staff being paid too much

CCO’s must be more accountable

Everything takes too long

Board members must all act in the best interest of the entire community

Improve communication with residents

 

28.     Consultation feedback on local board priorities will be considered by the local board when approving their local board agreement between the 14-18 June 2021. Local board key advocacy initiatives will be considered in the current report.

Information on submitters

29.     The tables and graphs below indicate the demographic information of those submitters who chose to provide it (n=768 of 1019 total submissions).

30.     Relative to the 2018 LTP consultation, youth submissions (age = <24) have more than doubled as a proportion of all submissions. This increase means that youth are nearly accurately represented in the LTP relative to the population data in the 2018 Census.

31.     While submitters indicating European ethnicity are again overrepresented relative to their proportion of 2018 Census population data, Asian and Māori submitters are each within two percentage points of the census data, and Pacific ethnicities make up the same proportion of submissions as population per the Census.

Overview of feedback received on regional topics in the 10-year Budget from the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board area

34.     The proposed 10-year Budget 2021-2031 sets out Auckland Council’s priorities and how to pay for them. Consultation on the proposed 10-year Budget asked submitters to respond to five key questions on:

1.   The proposed investment package

2.   Climate change

3.   Water quality

4.   Community investment

5.   Rating policy.

35.     The submissions received from the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board area on these key issues are summarised below, along with an overview of any other areas of feedback on regional proposals with a local impact.

Key Question 1: Proposed investment package

36.     Aucklanders were asked about a proposed $31 billion capital investment programme over the next ten years, allowing the council to deliver key services and renew our aging assets. The proposal includes a one-off 5 per cent average general rates increase for the 2021/2022 financial year, rather than the previously planned 3.5 per cent increase, before returning to 3.5 per cent increases over the remaining years.

37.     The proposal also includes higher borrowings in the short term, a continuation of cost savings and the sale of more surplus property. Without the greater use of rates and debt, around $900 million of investment in Auckland would be delayed from the next three years to later in this decade. This would slow Auckland’s recovery, put assets and services at risk, lose hundreds of millions of dollars in matching government subsidies and limit the response to climate and environmental challenges.

38.     The proposed investment package would also enable or support the delivery of local initiatives like the Lake Road improvement project, the reinstatement of $20 million Local Board Transport Capital Fund over the next 10 years equating to $672,650 pa for the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board area and $739 million total CAPEX renewals for the next three years that could be invested across the region. 

39.     The graphs below give an overview of the responses from the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board area.

40.     Comments made by those who did not support the proposed 10-year budget identified the following themes.

·        Concern re impact on those already experiencing financial hardship following impacts of COVID-19

·        Concern that greater emphasis should be placed on making savings rather than increasing rates

·        Concern that extra rates generated will not be used on projects seen as a priority by local residents

·        Concern that council is trying to do too much and that services should be looked at further to see what is really needed

·        Concern that ratepayers were being asked to contribute more when it was felt that there are too many staff on relatively high wages employed at council.

41.     Concern re waste and accountability on larger projects and within some of council’s CCOs. Comments made by those who did support the proposed 10-year budget identified the following themes.

·        The investment package seems like a balanced approach that uses many levers to achieve a sound budget

·        Interest rates are low at the moment and we should take advantage by borrowing now to invest in significant infrastructure projects

·        Support council’s proposed savings plan that will be implemented year on year

·        Disposal of underutilised or empty buildings will release funds to invest in things that are needed and used

·        Like that the increase in the rates is for a defined period of one year

·        Support investment in renewals projects as many of council’s assets require better maintenance or upgrade to current standards.

 

Key Question 2: Climate Change

42.     Aucklanders were asked about a proposal to provide additional investment to respond to climate change challenges. This includes enabling a quicker transition from diesel to cleaner electric and hydrogen buses, diverting more waste from landfill and enabling significant planting initiatives.  

43.     The graph below gives an overview of the responses from the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board area.

44.     Comments made by those who did support the proposed investment to meet the challenges of climate change identified the following themes.

·        climate change must be at the forefront of every decision made

·        action must be taken now if we are to meet the targets set in the Auckland Climate Action Plan

·        support for the proposed investment in transport infrastructure and council facilities to make them more efficient and reduce harmful emissions

·        support for the purchase of electric buses and the earlier phasing out of the diesel fleet

·        support for initiatives that will encourage recycling and better methods of waste disposal

45.     Comments made by those who did not support the proposed investment to meet the challenges of climate change identified the following themes.

·        climate change initiatives can wait until council’s budgets have recovered from the effects of COVID-19

·        savings should be made from existing budgets to accommodate measures to meet climate change challenges

·        there should be greater support from central government to meet climate issues

Key Question 3: Water quality

46.     Aucklanders were asked about a proposal to extend and increase the Water Quality Targeted Rate for another three years – from 2028 until 2031 – as well as increasing the targeted rate annually in line with proposed average increases in general rates. The Water Quality Targeted Rate funds projects to improve water quality in Auckland’s harbours, beaches and streams.  

47.     The Devonport-Takapuna Local Boards advocacy initiative relating to this topic demonstrates the depth of feeling from local residents about water quality in the area.

48.     The graphs below give an overview of the responses from the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board area.

49.     Comments made by those who did support the proposed extension and increase in the Water Quality Targeted Rate identified the following themes.

·        water quality is one of the most important issues in the local board area

·        any initiatives that will deliver improved infrastructure, testing or remediation of waterways and beaches must be supported

·        it is not acceptable to have beaches that residents cannot swim in, even if they are cleaner than other beaches in the region

·        if the increase and extension of the targeted rates is approved it is imperative that the Wairau Estuary is noted as a priority and that funding be allocated to reduce contaminants and improve water quality as quickly as possible

·        local residents and interest groups want to be involved in any solutions promoted

Key Question 4: Community investment

50.     Aucklanders were asked to provide feedback on a proposal that would see council adopt a new approach for community services to enable them to reduce building and asset maintenance related expenditure. The proposal involves consolidation of community facilities and services, increased leasing or shared facility arrangements, and an increased focus on providing multi-use facilities and online services in the future.

52.     Comments made by those who did support the proposed 10-year budget identified the following themes.

·    it makes sense given budget constraints

·    if unable to maintain facilities unlikely they are meeting needs

·    dispose of under-utilized or empty facilities and reinvest funds in facilities that are used and needed

·    leasing may be cheaper or provide better maintenance and management

·    buildings that are empty or deteriorating detract from the amenity of the area

·    partnerships with other organizations like schools may provide benefits to both parties

·    people are more willing and able to access services online.

 

52.     The main themes in comments from submitters who did not support the proposal included:

·    assets should be retained to cater for future population growth

·    leasing assets may be more expensive in the long term

·    not everyone wants to use technology or access services online

·    we must keep to core services and stop trying to do too much

·    assets should be owned/funded by interest groups

·    important to consult on specific changes at the time proposed.

Key Question 5: Rating policy

53.     Aucklanders were asked for their feedback on a raft of proposed rating changes impacting different properties across Auckland differently. Proposed changes also included, for example, the extension of the Natural Environment Targeted Rate until June 2031, along with options to extend the Urban Rating Area and reinstatement of the Accommodation Provider Targeted Rate.

Recommendations on local matters 

55.     This report allows the local board to recommend local matters to the Governing Body for consideration as part of the 10-year Budget process, in May 2021. This includes:

·    any new/amended business improvement district targeted rates

·    any new/amended local targeted rate proposals 

·    proposed locally driven initiative capital projects outside local boards’ decision-making responsibility

·    release of local board specific reserve funds.

·    approve its advocacy initiatives for inclusion (as an appendix) to its 2021/2022 Local Board Agreement

Local targeted rate and business improvement district targeted rate proposals

55.     Local boards are required to endorse any new or amended locally targeted rate proposals or business improvement district (BID) targeted rate proposals in their local board area. Note that these proposals must have been consulted on before they can be implemented.

56.     Local boards then recommend these proposals to the Governing Body for approval of the targeted rate. 

57.     There were no new or amended BID targeted rate proposals in the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board area.

Funding for Locally Driven Initiatives (LDI)

56.     Local boards are allocated funding for local driven initiatives (LDI) annually, to spend on local projects or programmes that are important to their communities. Local boards have decision-making over the LDI funds but need approval from the Governing Body where:

·    operational LDI funding is to be converted into capital LDI funding.

·    the release of local board specific reserve funds is requested, which are being held by the council for a specific purpose.

·    a LDI capital project exceeds $1 million.

These conditions do not apply to the Devonport-Takapuna local board for the 2021/2022 financial year.

Local board advocacy

57.     Local boards are requested to approve any advocacy initiatives for inclusion (as an appendix) to their 2020/2021 Local Board Agreement, taking into account the consultation feedback above. This allows the Finance and Performance Committee to consider these advocacy items when making decisions on the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 in May/June. 

58.     The Devonport-Takapuna Board’s advocacy initiatives for 2021-2031 and recommendations are shown below:

Advocacy Initiative

Recommendation

Advocating to council’s Governing Body that the new ferry terminal at Bayswater be fully funded in the Regional Land Transport Plan.

This matter will be dealt with when considering the Regional Land Transport Plan

Advocating to the Governing Body for an extension to the length of time that the Water Quality and Natural Environment Targeted Rates are collected, ideally for the duration of the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 rather than finishing in 2028

 

This will be determined by the Governing Body in June 2021 after it has considered feedback received through the LTP consultation process

Advocating for an increase in the budget for the Safe Network s Programme that supports Safeswim and the work to identify and remedy illegal discharges at our beaches

Include in 2021-2022 Local Board Agreement

Advocating for local board transport capital funding to contribute to the cost of the new walking and cycling connection between Francis Street and Esmonde Road.

Include in 2021-2022 Local Board Agreement

Local board input on regional topics in the 10-year Budget 2021-2031

59.     Local boards have a statutory responsibility for identifying and communicating the interests and preferences of the people in its local board area in relation to Auckland Council’s strategies, policies, plans, and bylaws, and any proposed changes to be made to them. This report provides an opportunity for the local board to provide input on council’s proposed 10-year Budget 2021-2031.

In addition to the proposals covered in the consultation questions, the 10-year budget also sought feedback on the proposed the disposal of two heritage buildings in the local board area.

The properties at 3 Victoria Road, Devonport and Number 2 The Strand, Takapuna are heritage scheduled buildings that were identified as surplus to operational requirements and have been empty for a number of years.

Number 2 The Strand is an endowment property, and any sale would have to comply with the Local Government Act 2002 and the proceeds used in a way that is consistent with the purpose of the endowment.

60.     Feedback in relation to the disposal of these buildings reflects the comments made in the section of this report dealing with the question on Community Investment. However, these properties both have some special significance for residents in this area, particularly as each was used by previous local government entities and also located in prominent positions in the area. Those who support their retention feel these assets should be retained for future needs of the area’s population and that they will be better protected if in public ownership. Others comment that given budget constraints that these assets should be sold with proceeds either being reinvested in the local area or used to reduce debt. Funds are not available to upgrade, operate and maintain these assets and there is concern that they will further deteriorate if investment is not made in them soon.

61.     Local board plans reflect community priorities and preferences and are key documents that guide the development of local board agreements (LBAs), local board annual work programmes, and local board input into regional plans such as the 10-year Budget.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

62.     The decisions recommended in this report are part of the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 and local board agreement process to approve funding and expenditure over the next 10 years.

63.     Projects allocated funding through this 10-year Budget process will all have varying levels of potential climate impact associated with them. The climate impacts of projects Auckland Council chooses to progress, are all assessed carefully as part of council’s rigorous reporting requirements.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

64.     The 10-year Budget 2021-2031 is an Auckland Council Group document and will include budgets at a consolidated group level. Consultation items and updates to budgets to reflect decisions and new information may include items from across the group.

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

Local impacts and local board views

65.     The local board’s decisions and feedback are being sought in this report. The local board has a statutory role in providing its feedback on regional plans.

66.     Local boards play an important role in the development of the council’s 10-year Budget. Local board agreements form part of the 10-year Budget. Local board nominees have also attended Finance and Performance Committee workshops on the 10-year Budget.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

67.     Many local board decisions are of importance to and impact on Māori. Local board agreements and the 10-year Budget are important tools that enable and can demonstrate the council’s responsiveness to Māori.

68.     Local board plans, developed in 2020 through engagement with the community including Māori, form the basis of local board area priorities. There is a need to continue to build relationships between local boards and iwi, and the wider Māori community.

69.     Analysis provided of consultation feedback received on the proposed 10-year Budget includes submissions made by mana whenua and the wider Māori community who have interests in the rohe / local board area.

70.     Ongoing conversations between local boards and Māori will assist to understand each other’s priorities and issues. This in turn can influence and encourage Māori participation in council’s decision-making processes.

71.     Some projects approved for funding could have discernible impacts on Māori. The potential impacts on Māori, as part of any project progressed by Auckland Council, will be assessed appropriately and accordingly as part of relevant reporting requirements.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

72.     This report is seeking the local board’s decisions on financial matters in the local board agreement that must then be considered by the Governing Body.

73.     The local board also provides input to regional plans and proposals. There is information in the council’s consultation material for each plan or proposal with the financial implications of each option outlined for consideration.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

74.     The council must adopt its 10-year Budget, which includes local board agreements, by 30 June 2021. The local board is required to make recommendations on these local matters for the 10-year Budget by mid May 2021, to enable and support the Governing Body to make decisions on key items to be included in the 10-year Budget on 25 May 2021.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

75.     The local board will approve its local board agreement and corresponding work programmes in June 2021.

76.     Recommendations and feedback from the local board will be provided to the relevant Governing Body committee for consideration during decision making at the Governing Body meeting.

77.     The final 10-year Budget 2021-2031 (including local board agreements) will be adopted by the Governing Body on 22 June 2021.
