Horopaki

Context

5.       The Auckland Council Community Grants Policy guides the allocation of local, multi-board and regional grant programmes to groups and organisations delivering projects, activities, and services that benefit Aucklanders.

8.       Once the local board grants programme 2021/2022 has been adopted, the types of grants, grant rounds, criteria, and eligibility with be advertised through an integrated communication and marketing approach which includes utilising the local board channels.

 

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

9.       The aim of the local board grant programme is to deliver projects and activities which align with the outcomes identified in the local board plan. The new Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Grants Programme has been workshopped with the local board and feedback incorporated into the grants programme for 2021/2022.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

10.     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. Local board grants can contribute to climate action through the support of projects that address food production and food waste; alternative transport methods; community energy efficiency education and behaviour change; build community resilience and support tree planting.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

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

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

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

Local impacts and local board views

13.     The grants programme has been developed by the local board to set the direction of its grants programme. This programme is reviewed on an annual basis.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

14.     All grant programmes respond to Auckland Council’s commitment to improving Māori wellbeing by providing grants to organisations delivering positive outcomes for Māori. Applicants are asked how their project aims to increase Māori outcomes in the application process.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

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

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

16.     The allocation of grants occurs within the guidelines and criteria of the Community Grants Policy. Therefore, there is minimal risk associated with the adoption of the grants programme.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

17.     An implementation plan is underway, and the local board grants programme will be locally advertised through the local board and council channels, including the council website, local board Facebook page and communication with past recipients of grants.

Context

6.       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.

7.       The local board grants programme sets out:

·   local board priorities

·   lower priorities for funding

·   exclusions

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

·   any additional accountability requirements.

8.       The Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board adopted the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Grants Programme 2020/2021 on 28 May 2020. The document sets application guidelines for contestable community grants submitted to the local board.

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

Analysis and advice

10.     The aim of the local board grant programme is to deliver projects and activities which align with the outcomes identified in the local board plan.

Climate impact statement

11.     The Local Board Grants Programme aims to respond to Auckland Council’s commitment to address climate change by providing grants to individuals and groups for projects that support and enable community climate action.

12.     Community climate action involves reducing or responding to climate change by local residents in a locally relevant way. Local board grants can contribute to expanding climate action by supporting projects that reduce carbon emissions and increase community resilience to climate impacts.

13.     Examples of projects include local food production and food waste reduction; increasing access to single-occupancy transport options; home energy efficiency and community renewable energy generation; local tree planting and streamside revegetation; and educating about sustainable lifestyle choices that reduce carbon footprints.

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

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

Local impacts and local board views

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

17.     The Board is requested to note that section 50 of the Community Grants Policy states:
“We will also provide feedback to unsuccessful grant applicants about why they have been declined, so they will know what they can do to increase their chances of success next time”.

18.     A summary of each application received through 2020/2021 Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local and Multi-Board Grants Round Two is provided in Attachments B and C.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

19.     The local board grants programme aims to respond to the council’s commitment to improving Māori wellbeing by providing grants to individuals and groups who deliver positive outcomes for Māori.

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

23.     The Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board has set a total community grants budget of $373,000 for the 2020/2021 financial year. The local board allocated a total of $202,404.52 in previous grant rounds (including $10,000 in an urgent decision). This leaves an amount of $170,595.48 to allocate to Local and Multi-Board Round Two and Quick Response Round One.

24.     Forty two applications have been received for Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local and Multi-Board Grants Round Two 2020/2021, requesting $279,384.86.

Endorsing the Business Improvement District (BID) targeted rate 2021/2022

File No.: CP2021/05255

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To recommend to the Governing Body the setting of the targeted rates for the Māngere Town Centre, South Harbour, Māngere East Village, Māngere Bridge and Ōtāhuhu Business Improvement District (BID) programmes for the 2021/2022 financial year.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

 

2.       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 resilience and attract new businesses and customers.

3.       Auckland Council supports business associations operating BID programmes, including Māngere Town Centre, South Harbour, Māngere East Village, Māngere Bridge and Ōtāhuhu business associations, 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.

4.       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.

5.       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 association’s BID strategic priorities.

6.       Māngere Town Centre Business Association members approved a BID grant sum of $284,949 for 2021/2022. This figure is unchanged from the current financial year.

7.       South Harbour Business Association members approved the sum of $81,324. This figure is unchanged from the current financial year.

8.       Māngere East Village Business Association members approved $6,100. This figure is unchanged from the current financial year.

9.       Ōtāhuhu Business Association members approved $663.000. This figure is unchanged from the current financial year.

10.     Māngere Bridge Business Association members approved a BID sum grant of $30,000 which is an increase from the current financial year.

11.     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 independence of the business association and the accountability for monies collected by a public sector organisation.

12.     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). 

13.     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.

14.     Staff are satisfied the Māngere Town Centre, South Harbour, Māngere East Village, Māngere Bridge and Ōtāhuhu business associations sufficiently complies with the BID Policy.

15.     Staff propose the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board receives this report and recommends to the Governing Body the striking (setting) of the BID targeted rate sought by Māngere Town Centre, South Harbour, Māngere East Village, Māngere Bridge and Ōtāhuhu business associations as part of the council’s Annual Budget 2021/2022 decision-making.

16.     After the Annual Budget is approved, the council collects the targeted rate funds and distributes them in quarterly BID grant payments, effective from 1 July 2021. This enables Māngere Town Centre, South Harbour, Māngere East Village, Māngere Bridge and Ōtāhuhu business associations to implement programmes that contribute to Outcome 1: A confident and sustainable local economy, thereby supporting the aspirations of the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board Plan 2020.

17.     Māngere-Ōtāhuhu’s BID programmes, managed by the BID-operating business associations, will continue to play an important role in supporting their members facing two global challenges. A BID programme can support local businesses to mitigate some of the flow-on effects from the COVID 19 lockdowns through business resilience and recovery initiatives. A BID programme can also facilitate opportunities that address the climate change emergency, with a focus on sustainability.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      recommends to the Governing Body the setting of the targeted rates for inclusion in the Annual Budget 2021/2022 for the following Business Improvement District (BID) programmes:

i.        $284,949 for Māngere Town Centre Business Association

ii.       $81,324 for South Harbour Business Association

iii.      $6,100 for Māngere East Village Business Association

iv.      $30,000 for Māngere Bridge Business Association

v.       $663,000 for Ōtāhuhu Business Association.

Context

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

18.     Tāmaki Makaurau is projected to include approximately 660,000 (SOURCE: Auckland Council Growth Model 2021-2051 (“i11v6”) more people in the next 30 years. This level of population growth presents challenges and opportunities for Auckland town centres and commercial precincts.

19.     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 innovation and attract new businesses and customers.

20.     BID programmes provide the opportunity for the council group to partner with business associations to seize on the opportunities from Auckland’s growth. 

21.     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

22.     The economy continues to be impacted by the flow-on effects from the COVID-19 pandemic and related lockdowns, affecting both retail-based town centres and industrial precincts.

23.     BID-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

24.     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.

25.     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.

26.     This revenue is paid to the business association every quarter to provide a regular and sustainable income stream to implement an agreed work programme.

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

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

28.     The policy outlines the principles behind the council’s BID programme; creates the process for establishing, expanding, amalgamating and disestablishing BID programmes; 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

29.       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, the association’s board must take into account what the local business and property owners can afford.

30.     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.

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

32.     The 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

33.     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 substantially complying with the BID Policy.

34.     The Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board approved a similar recommendation for the BID programme last year (resolution number MO/2020/61), 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

35.     The recommendation in this report is put into effect with the Governing Body’s approval of the Annual Budget 2021/2022 and its striking (setting) of the targeted rates.

36.     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

37.     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 business association members to determine. Staff cannot base recommendations on these factors, but only on the policy’s express requirements.

Māngere Town Centre, South Harbour, Māngere East Village, Māngere Bridge and Ōtāhuhu business associations complies with the BID Policy

38.     Staff are satisfied that Māngere Town Centre, South Harbour, Māngere East Village, Māngere Bridge and Ōtāhuhu business associations have sufficiently met the requirements of the BID Policy.

39.     Staff require BID-operating business associations to provide to the council the following documents, and stay in touch with their local board 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, based on the strategic plan, to be resourced 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 Annual Budget 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 – the provisional minutes of each business association’s 2020 AGM meetings which contain the resolution, voted on by members, confirming the BID grant amount for the 2021/2022 financial year.

 

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

·   Incorporated Society registration – a current registration of the business association along with all required documents up to date.

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

 

41.     The BID Policy sets an annual compliance deadline of 10 March for the information to be forwarded to the council, as summarised in the table below.

42.     As Māngere Town Centre, South Harbour, Māngere East Village, Māngere Bridge and Ōtāhuhu 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 rate.

 

Māngere Town Centre, South Harbour, Māngere East Village and Ōtāhuhu business associations retain the same BID grant amount for 2021/2022, whilst Māngere Bridge Business Association increases its grant amount.

43.     As shown in Table 2 below:

·    Māngere Town Centre’s BID target rate for 2021/2022 - $284,949 - is unchanged from the current financial year.

·    South Harbour’s BID target rate for 2021/2022 - $81,324 - is unchanged from the current financial year.

·    Māngere East Village’s BID target rate for 2021/2022 - $6,100 – is unchanged from the current financial year.

·    Ōtāhuhu Business Association’s BID target rate for 2021/2022 - $663,000 -is unchanged from the current financial year.

44.     Māngere Bridge Business Association’s BID target rate for 2021/2022 - $30,000 – is an increase of $1,200 from the current financial year.

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

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

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

47.     From running carbon-reducing ‘shop local’ campaigns to promoting online channels 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

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

49.     The BID-operating business associations work with Auckland Unlimited (AU) on economic development initiatives, events and sustainability programmes.

50.     The BID-operating business associations also work constructively with both Panuku and Auckland Transport on often controversial proposals and projects.

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

Local impacts and local board views

51.     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 alternates) 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

52.     The BID-operating business associations 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.

53.     Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board BID programmes tangibly support the vision and aspirations of the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board Plan 2020, best expressed in Outcome 1: A confident and sustainable local economy.

Local rohe, local benefit, local funding

54.     Recommending that the Governing Body sets the targeted rates for Māngere Town Centre, South Harbour, Māngere East Village, Māngere Bridge and Ōtāhuhu business associations means that the BID programme will continue to be funded from targeted rates on commercial properties within their respective current rohe. They will provide services in accordance with their members’ priorities as stated in their strategic plan.

55.     Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board is among several local boards which provides additional funding to local business associations, however accountability for any grants is set by funding agreements between the local board and each business association. Those contractual obligations are separate from the requirements of the BID Policy and are not covered in this report.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

56.     Māori make up more than 16.4% of the population living in the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board area, compared to 11.5% of Auckland (SOURCE: 2018 CENSUS)Individual 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

57.     There are no financial implications for the local board. Targeted rates for BID-operating business associations are raised directly from commercial ratepayers in their 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.

58.     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 of the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions. 

59.     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.

60.     If the Governing Body agrees with the BID targeted rates proposed by the local boards, the cost of grants will be met from the existing operational budget.

Risks and mitigations

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

62.     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.

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

64.     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.

65.     Economic disruption created by the flow-on effects of 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

66.     If the local board supports this report, it will recommend to the Governing Body that the BID targeted rates be set as part of the Annual Budget 2021/2022.

67.     After the Annual Budget is approved, the council collects the targeted rate funds and distributes them in quarterly BID grant payments, effective from 1 July 2021, to the Māngere Town Centre, South Harbour, Māngere East Village, Māngere Bridge and Ōtāhuhu Business Associations. This enables each BID to implement programmes that improve their local business environment and support businesses as they recover from the flow-on effects from the COVID 19 lockdowns and help address the climate change emergency through sustainability initiatives.

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

File No.: CP2021/05611

 

  

 

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 Kainga 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 Māngere-Ōtāhuhu 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 Ōrākei 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 Kainga 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 Kainga 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 Taruke-a-Tawhiri: 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 has 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 rationale 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.: CP2021/05643

 

  

 

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 2021-24.

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 Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      receive the draft Economic Development Action Plan: Council’s role in Auckland’s recovery 2021-24

b)      provide feedback by 14 June 2021 for consideration in the final draft Economic Development Action Plan: Council’s role in Auckland’s recovery 2021-24.

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 2021-24 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.

Central government submission - congestion pricing

File No.: CP2021/05882

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To provide the local board with an opportunity to provide input into Auckland Council’s submission to Parliament’s Transport and Infrastructure Committee inquiry into congestion pricing in Auckland.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Minister of Transport has asked Parliament’s Transport and Infrastructure Committee to undertake an inquiry into congestion pricing in Auckland.

3.       The select committee has invited public submissions, which close on 20 May 2021.

4.       Based on previous decisions on this matter, staff are recommending that the Planning Committee support in principle the implementation of congestion pricing in Auckland, conditional upon particular issues being addressed.

5.       The local board now has the opportunity to consider the matters raised by ‘The Congestion Question’ (TCQ) project and formulate its views for inclusion as part of Auckland Council’s submission to the select committee.

6.       Feedback received from local boards by 10 May will be considered for incorporation into the council’s submission.  Feedback received from local boards by 17 May will be appended to the council’s submission.

7.       Due to the timing of the submission deadline in relation to the Auckland Council Planning Committee schedule, council staff will be asking for a delegated sign off at the 6 May Planning Committee meeting.

8.       Staff anticipate that the council will continue to be involved in this work as a full decision-making partner and will thus be able to resolve its final position on matters set out in the submission in due course and with the benefit of some insight into public sentiment through the select committee process.

Horopaki

Context

9.       Parliament’s Transport and Infrastructure Committee is calling for public submissions on its inquiry into congestion pricing in Auckland.

10.     Submissions close on Thursday 20 May.  Due to the timing of the submission deadline in relation to the Auckland Council Planning Committee schedule, council staff will be asking for a delegated sign off at the 6 May Planning Committee meeting.

11.     Feedback received from local boards by 10 May will be considered for incorporation into the main submission. Feedback received from local boards by 17 May will be appended to the council submission.

12.     The local board now has the opportunity to consider the matters raised by the TCQ project and formulate its views for inclusion as part of Auckland Council’s submission to the select committee.

13.     Congestion pricing involves implementing a charge (or charges) to manage demand on the road network.  This can encourage users to change their travel behaviour, such as the time, route, or mode by which they travel. 

14.     A copy of a memo provided to the Planning Committee and local board members (dated 1 April) on this subject is presented as Attachment A to this report. A copy of a report outlining the main findings from phase two of the TCQ project is presented as Attachment B to this report.

15.     Auckland Council and Auckland Transport will make a combined submission to the inquiry. The Transport and Infrastructure Committee is interested in hearing people’s thoughts on the idea of introducing congestion pricing in Auckland, and will be guided in its inquiry by the below terms of reference:

·    Using ‘The Congestion Question’ (TCQ) reports as a base, developing a thorough understanding of how a congestion regime could be implemented, including the use of technology, which routes would be included, and how charging could be structured and facilitated.

·    Through the submissions process, lead a constructive public dialogue to ensure all affected groups and individuals have an opportunity to have their say.

·    Ensuring that equity and mitigation issues are identified and how any scheme could be structured to ensure that any one group, particularly those on lower incomes, are not unreasonably impacted.

·    Focusing on how any revenue raised would be used and would integrate with other revenue streams derived from fuel taxes, road user charges, and other fiscal factors.

·    Identifying and evaluating comparative congestion charging models internationally and identifying best practice.

·    Confirming the likely behavioural change and benefits from a congestion charge in Auckland, including evaluating the impact of behavioural change on existing alternative transport modes, especially public transport.

·    Provide the opportunity for those outside Auckland to engage with the issue through the submissions process.

·    Understanding the impact of a congestion charge on emissions and air quality.

·    Understanding the options for legislative change to enable congestion pricing.

16.     Council staff have presented to the Planning Committee on the TCQ project previously, most recently on 3 December 2020 where a project update and the findings from phase two were presented. The Planning Committee passed the following resolutions at that meeting (resolution number PLA/2020/116):

·    note that phase two of the TCQ project is complete

·    receive the findings from phase two of the TCQ project

·    approve officers scoping the next phase of the project alongside officers from participating agencies, including Auckland Transport

·    note that officers will seek the Planning Committee’s approval of the scope before proceeding with the third phase of the TCQ project

·    require that the scope provides a timeline and process for comprehensive public engagement, including targeted engagement with Maori, due to the critical importance of hearing from Aucklanders about the implications and options of congestion pricing before any decisions are finalised

·    require that the potential social inequity impacts and the mitigation of any such impacts be fundamental to further considerations and the scope of the next phase of work

·    requests quarterly progress reporting on the next phase of congestion pricing in Auckland

·    urge central government to fully commit its agencies to progress the next phase of congestion pricing in Auckland, including provisional scheme design, for a final decision by quarter three in 2021.

Analysis and advice

17.     Due to the announcement of the select committee inquiry, phase three of TCQ has been put on hold until the government clarifies the next steps. The submission timeframes do not allow the necessary work to be undertaken to determine the details of scheme design and implementation that will be required to support final decisions on congestion pricing. Further work will therefore be required either under the auspices of the select committee or TCQ (or something akin to it).

18.     Based on previous decisions on this matter, staff are recommending that the Planning Committee:

·    support in principle implementation of congestion pricing in Auckland, conditional upon the following issues being addressed:

i)    mitigation of equity impacts

ii)   having public transport services and projects in place to allow road users to switch to alternative modes where appropriate

iii)   that revenue collected, in addition to that needed to operate the scheme and to address subclauses a) i) and a) ii) above, be used to offset and, as revenue and costs allow, replace the Regional Fuel Tax.

19.     Staff propose that the submission be framed around several key issues of concern for Auckland Council as identified through the resolutions of and discussions at the Planning Committee’s December 2020 meeting, TCQ phase two reports and the select committee inquiry’s terms of reference. These issues include:

·    the case for congestion pricing in Auckland

·    the mitigations required to ensure more equitable outcomes for vulnerable communities

·    the role of congestion pricing in helping reduce Auckland’s transport emissions

·    the need to ensure appropriate public and active transport alternatives are in place in affected corridors prior to the introduction of congestion pricing

·    the need to understand and address potential revenue implications for Auckland Council.

20.     Staff anticipate that Auckland Council will continue to be involved in this work as a full decision-making partner and will thus be able to resolve its final position on matters set out in the submission in due course and with the benefit of some insight into public sentiment through the select committee process.

Climate impact statement

21.     Local boards’ input to the Auckland Council submission to the select committee does not in itself raise direct climate impacts.

22.     The introduction of congestion pricing in Auckland will likely have positive climate impacts.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

23.     Auckland Transport is working closely with Auckland Council staff to develop the submission.

24.     The Auckland Transport Board has previously indicated its in principle support for the introduction of congestion pricing.

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

Local impacts and local board views

25.     The impacts of congestion pricing will vary between local board areas depending on the specific corridors selected for inclusion within the scheme and the travel patterns of local people.

26.     The social evaluation analysis undertaken in support of TCQ phase two modelled the potential variance in household impact of a particular congestion pricing scheme between local board areas and further differentiated by household income levels. In terms of the differentiation of financial impact the least affected local board area is Orakei (average additional household costs of 0.23 per cent of average household income) while the most affected was Otara-Papatoetoe (0.65 per cent).

27.     The key point here is not the precise modelled numbers (which will change as input assumptions to the model are updated) but rather the differentiation between high- and low-income areas. This further reinforces the need for mitigation measures to offset the potentially inequitable impact of congestion pricing on low-income households.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

28.     Local boards’ input to the Auckland Council submission to the select committee does not in itself have a direct impact on Māori.

29.     Impacts on Māori have been canvassed as part of the TCQ project, and further information can be found in Attachment B.

30.     Staff have invited mana whenua input into Auckland Council’s submission and have provided an update for the Tāmaki Makaurau Mana Whenua Forum to consider at its May 2021 forum meeting.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

31.     Local boards’ input to the Auckland Council submission to the select committee does not in itself have a direct financial impact.

32.     The establishment of a congestion pricing scheme will require significant investment in infrastructure (e.g., number plate recognition technology) and ongoing operating costs. Given that no decisions on congestion pricing have been made, no funding has been allocated to its implementation in either Auckland Transport Alignment Project (ATAP) 2021-31 or the draft Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) 2021-31. It is likely both documents will be updated prior to any implementation of congestion pricing in Auckland so there will be an opportunity to revisit funding allocations in the future

Risks and mitigations

33.     Due to the timing of business meetings, local boards may need to resolve their feedback prior to the Planning Committee resolving its views on the matter. This risk can be mitigated by reviewing the attached report to planning committee (Attachment C) and - for those who resolve their feedback after 6 May – we recommend that the Planning Committee resolutions are considered.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

34.     Submissions to the Transport and Infrastructure Committee’s inquiry into congestion pricing in Auckland close on 20 May 2021.

35.     The Transport Strategy Team will lead the development of the Auckland Council group’s submission to the select committee.

36.     Feedback received from local boards by 10 May will be considered for incorporation into the main submission. 

37.     Feedback received from local boards by 17 May will be appended to the council submission.

38.     The deadline for the select committee to report its findings and any recommendations to the Minister of Transport is not yet known. As indicated throughout this report, further work will be required either during or after the select committee process to determine key matters ahead of final decisions on whether to implement congestion pricing in Auckland.
