TERMS OF REFERENCE

(Excerpt – full terms of reference available as a separate document)

 

The terms of reference set out the purpose, role and protocols of the Panel.

Panel members abide by the Code of Conduct for members of Auckland Council advisory

panels.

 

Purpose

As one of council’s engagement mechanisms with diverse communities, the demographic

advisory panels provide advice to the governing body and council staff within the remit of the

Auckland Plan on the following areas:

·         Auckland Council’s regional policies, plans and strategies

·         Regional and strategic matters including those that Council-Controlled Organisations deal with any matter of particular interest or concern to diverse communities.

 

Outcomes

The panel’s advice will contribute to improving the outcomes of diverse communities and

social cohesion as set out in the Auckland Plan. The panel will advise through their agreed

strategic agenda and detailed work programme.

 

Strategic agenda and work programme

The panel must develop a work programme and set a strategic agenda for the term. The

agendas should be focused and integrated across the panels for collaborative input into

shared agendas, particularly on the Auckland Plan, the Long-term Plan and annual plans.

The panel should advise on council’s organisational strategies relevant to diverse

communities.

The governing body and council staff should work with the panel for the development of their

strategic agendas and work programme. An appropriate committee will approve the panel’s

work programme and any subsequent major changes to it.

 

Submissions

The panel must not make formal submissions to Auckland Council on council strategies,

policies and plans, for example, the annual plan.

In its advisory role to the council, the panel may have input to submissions made by the

council to external organisations but do not make independent submissions, except as

agreed with the council.

This does not prevent individual members being party to submissions outside their role as

panel members.

 

Review

The form and functioning of the panels may be reviewed prior to or after, the end of the

panel’s term in September 2019.

Economic Development Action Plan 2021-24

File No.: CP2021/05937

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To inform the panel of the purpose, summary of actions, and feedback process on the draft Economic Development Action Plan: Council’s role in Auckland’s recovery 2021-24.

2.       To receive any information the panel may wish to share in relation to their economic development priorities.

3.       To determine the panel’s preferred process for feedback on the draft Plan.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

4.       A memo was provided to all Demographic Advisory Panel Co-Chairs, 17 March 2021, to inform advisory panel members of the development of council’s Economic Development Action Plan 2021-24 and to outline the process for feedback.

·    The purpose of council’s Economic Development Action Plan (EDAP) is for the council and the substantive Council Controlled Organisations (CCOs) to define and agree, for the next three years, the economic objectives and priorities and to determine a coordinated course of action within the remit of the council family.

·    The draft Plan brings together economic development priorities and aspirations previously consulted on in Auckland wide strategies, in particular, the Auckland Plan 2050, Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan and Kia Ora Tāmaki Makaurau: council’s Māori outcomes framework – with the purpose of focusing effort over the next three years.

·    There is opportunity for feedback to the draft EDAP from May to 14 June 2021. Ethnic Peoples Advisory Panel feedback will be considered in the final plan for adoption on 8 July 2021.

Consideration

5.       The vision of the draft Plan is, “Auckland Council whānau’s contribution to economic development enables a regenerative and inclusive economy for the people and wellbeing of Tamaki Makaurau.”

6.       The actions in the draft Plan have been developed with our guiding principles of ‘transitioning to a regenerative and low carbon economy, supporting economic opportunity for Māori, and responding to our communities of greatest need.’

7.       The areas of focus (or themes) of the draft Plan are:

−    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 Auckland’s future.

−    Enabled Tāmaki Makaurau: Infrastructure enabling economic development.

−    Enabled Tāmaki Makaurau: Regulations that enable economic development.

8.       Of relevance to the Ethnic Peoples Advisory Panel is the ‘Skilled Tāmaki Makaurau’ theme focused on providing opportunities to improve skills and opportunities in employment and enterprise, particularly for our communities of greatest need, and the ‘Local Tāmaki Makaurau’ that emphasises support for local centres and businesses as a foundation for strong, thriving and resilient local economies.  

9.       We recognise the role of the Ethnic Peoples Advisory Panel in communicating the interests and preferences of Auckland’s ethnic communities relating to matters such as economic development. There is an opportunity for priority areas in your strategic work programme to be considered for inclusion within this plan, as they relate to economic development, and as they are able to be addressed within the council family’s remit.

Next steps

10.     The draft Economic Development Action Plan 2021-24 will be presented to the Parks, Arts, Community and Events committee on 13 May 2021, after which it will be circulated to this panel.

11.     The panel should determine if it will provide feedback, and if so, its preferred process.

12.     Any queries or feedback on the draft Plan from this panel can be directed to our project leads Janelle Breckell (Janelle.breckell@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz) and/or James Robinson (James.Robinson@aucklandnz.com)

Finalising the Ethnic Peoples Advisory Panel's strategic work programme

File No.: CP2021/05941

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To outline steps to finalise and agree the content of the Ethnic Peoples Advisory Panel’s strategic work programme.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       All advisory panels develop a strategic work programme for their term.  These work programmes outline at a high level, the key priority areas the panel wishes to focus on during this term, within the scope of the panel’s role. Once panels have agreed their work programmes, they are endorsed by Auckland Council’s Parks, Arts, Community and Events (PACE) Committee.

3.       The Ethnic Peoples Advisory Panel’s role is to advise Council on issues that are important to Ethnic communities in Auckland, and to assist Council to engage effectively with this community.

4.       The Ethnic Peoples Advisory Panel held a workshop in December 2020 to consider the direction, focus and priorities for its strategic work programme. This was discussed further at its workshop in March 2021.

5.       Members identified the following overarching themes: Support the economic and social development of diverse communities in Auckland, grounding in honouring the treaty and environmental sustainability with the following priority areas:

·        Belonging and participation- advocacy for anti-racism, and create safe opportunities for people to meet, connect, participate in and enjoy community and civic life

·        Opportunity and prosperity – attract and retain skills, talent and investment and supporting recovery from COVID-19

·        Transport and access – increase genuine choices for a healthy, vibrant and equitable Auckland

·        Affordable housing

6.       While these high-level priorities were presented to the PACE committee on 13 May 2021, the panel is still able to review, refine and build on these priorities at this meeting. If further work is required, the panel can include the strategic action plan at its next workshop.

7.       Discussing this report at the Ethnic Peoples Advisory Panel’s May 2021 meeting provides an opportunity for the panel to record any decisions on key aspects of its strategic plan.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Ethnic Peoples Advisory Panel:

a)      note that high level priorities from the panel’s strategic work programme were presented to the May 2021 meeting of Auckland Council’s Parks, Arts, Community and Events Committee

b)      note that the strategic work programme is a living document and further discussions are possible to refine and build detail to allow the panel to confirm its priorities for the remainder of the term.
