Kua uru mai a hau kaha, a hau maia, a hau ora, a hau nui,

Ki runga, ki raro, ki roto, ki waho

Horopaki

Context

7.       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.

8.       The Auckland Council Community Grants Policy supports each local board to adopt a grants programme.

9.       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

10.     The Waiheke Local Board adopted their grants programme for 2020/2021 on 22 April 2020 and will operate three quick response and two local grants rounds for this financial year

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

12.     The local board has set a total community grants budget of $89,601 for the 2020/2021 financial year. A total of $33,041.50 has been allocated in the previous grant rounds.  This leaves a total of $56,559.50 to be allocated in two quick response grant rounds and one local grant round.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

13.     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. All applications have been assessed utilising the Community Grants Policy and the local board grant programme criteria. The eligibility of each application is identified in the report recommendations

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

14.     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 support of projects that address food production and food waste, support alternative transport methods, support 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

15.     According to the main focus of the application, each one has received input from a subject matter expert from the relevant department. The main focuses are identified as arts, community, events, sport and recreation, environment or heritage.

16.     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

17.     Local boards are responsible for the decision-making and allocation of local board community grants. The Waiheke 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

18.     The board is requested to note that section 48 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’.

19.     A summary of each application received through round two of the Waiheke Quick Response 2020/2021 grant round is provided (refer Attachment B).

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

20.     The local board grants programme aims to respond to Auckland Council’s commitment to improving Māori wellbeing by providing grants to individuals and groups who deliver positive outcomes for Māori. Auckland Council’s Māori Responsiveness Unit has provided input and support towards the development of the community grant processes

21.     Seven applicants applying to quick response round two, have indicated that their project targets Māori or Māori outcomes.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

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

23.     The local board has set a total community grants budget of $89,601 for the 2020/2021 financial year. A total of $33,041.50 has been allocated in local grant and quick response round one.

24.     Waiheke Quick Response Round Two 2020/2021 was completed and a total of $11,799 was allocated. This leaves a total of $44,760.50 to be allocated in one quick response round and one local grant round.

25.     Twenty-four applications were received for consideration by the Waiheke Local Board for the Local and Multiboard Grant Round Two 2020/2021, requesting a total of $83,898.64.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

26.     The allocation of grants occurs within the guidelines and criteria of the Community Grants Policy and the local board grants programme. The assessment process has identified a low risk associated with funding the applications in this round.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

27.     Following the Waiheke Local Board allocating funding for round one of the quick response grants, the grants staff will notify the applicants of the local board’s decision.

Recommendations

Horopaki

Context

6.       Auckland Transport is responsible for all of Auckland’s transport services, excluding state highways. We report monthly to local boards, as set out in our Local Board Engagement Plan. This reporting commitment acknowledges the important engagement role local boards play within the governance of Auckland on behalf of their local communities. 

7.       This report updates the Waiheke Local Board on Auckland Transport (“AT”) projects and operations in the local board area, it updates the local board on their advocacy and consultations and includes information on the status of the Local Board Transport Capital Fund (“LBTCF”) and Community Safety Fund (“CSF”).

8.       This report also provides an opportunity for local board feedback to the draft Future Connect network plan.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

Draft Future Connect network plan

9.       The draft Future Connect Mapping Portal and reports are now available on the Auckland Transport website (AT.govt.nz/futureconnect). Auckland Transport are seeking feedback from elected members on the draft, and in particular the Cycle & Micromobility Strategic Network. Auckland Transport seek consolidated feedback from each local board.

10.     Since Auckland Transport’s last communication, the Cycle & Micromobility Strategic Network has been updated and so your feedback on this network is important. An information sheet on the Cycle & Micromobility Strategic Network is attached to provide further details.

11.     Auckland Transport had initially sought feedback into the final version of Future Connect by 21 May 2021, however Auckland Transport have extended this date to enable local boards to resolve on feedback.

Local Board Transport Capital Fund (LBTCF)

12.     The LBTCF is a capital budget provided to all local boards by Auckland Council and delivered by Auckland Transport. Local boards can use this fund to deliver transport infrastructure projects that they believe are important but are not part of AT’s work programme

13.     The LBTCF for the 20/21 financial year has been set at $5.0 million for allocation across the 21 local boards. Allocation is based on the Local Board Funding Policy. Decisions about the 21/22 and 22/23 financial years will form part of the Long-Term Plan/Regional Land Transport Plan (LTP/RLTP) discussions.

14.     Advice from the Finance Department is that with specific budgets unknown for 21/22 and 22/23 financial years, boards are unable to combine future years allocations into a single project.

15.     Boards are encouraged to target delivery of smaller projects or complete design and documentation for a project than can be physically delivered in 21/22.

16.     The Waiheke Local Board share of the 20/21 LBTCF allocation is $97,061.

17.     The local board agreed at the November business meeting to allocate $25,000 of the LBTCF allocation to install two shelters on the taxi rank platform at Matiatia. These shelters were installed in December 2020.

18.     Auckland Transport will work with the local board to discuss and advise on the best use of the remaining budget.

Community Safety Fund (CSF)

19.     The CSF is a capital budget established by Auckland Transport for use by local boards to fund local road safety initiatives. The purpose of this fund is to allow elected members to address long-standing local road safety issues that are not regional priorities and are therefore not being addressed by the Auckland Transport programme.

20.     The CSF is funded from Auckland Transport’s safety budget and is dependent on the level of funding AT receives from Council. This level of funding has been constrained through the Emergency Budget process. Public consultation and design work is progressing so that projects are designed and ready to go when the money becomes available.

21.     Safety projects will be prioritized according to DSI (death and serious injury) data and therefore local board community safety projects will continue with planning and design but may not be delivered in the 20/21 financial year.

Update on Auckland Transport operations:

22.     The table below has a general summary of projects and activities of interest to the local board with their status. Please note that:

·    All timings are indicative and are subject to change.

·    The Waiheke Operations Manager will update the local board in the event of any amendments or changes to the summaries provided for below.

Waiheke Walking and Cycling FY2020/2021 Funding Allocation

File No.: CP2021/06257

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To approve allocation of the remaining $8,000 Locally Driven Initiative (LDI) Walking and Cycling Promotion opex budget to support Cycle Action Waiheke in the design and development of a Bike Waiheke Map.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The approved Waiheke Local Board 2020/2021 Parks Sports and Recreation (PSR) work programme (WHK/2020/128) includes $20,000 LDI opex for walking and cycling promotion on Waiheke (Sharepoint ID 146).

3.       Cycle Action Waiheke (CAW) is a local cycling advocacy group which has received funding from the Waiheke Local Board in previous years to support a range of events notably the Waiheke Cycling Festival.

4.       There is $8,000 remaining in the walking and cycling budget, and CAW has submitted a proposal to the local board for funding to design and print a cycling focussed Bike Waiheke Map and develop a website supporting local cycling activities and businesses.

5.       Staff recommend allocating $8,000 from the walking and cycling promotion budget to support the development of the CAW Bike Waiheke Map and supporting website development.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation

That the Waiheke Local Board:

a)      approve allocation of $8,000 LDI opex from the walking and cycling budget to Cycle Action Waiheke for the development of Bike Waiheke Map and supporting website development.

Horopaki

Context

6.       At the 24 June 2020 business meeting, the Waiheke Local Board approved an allocation up to $4,000 LDI opex from the Parks Strategic Fund to support CAW delivered focussed programmes activating local cyclists (WHK/2020/102). The approved funding supported cycling events and activities held on the island throughout 2020.

7.       On 24 February 2021 CAW submitted a proposal to the local board requesting funding to develop a Bike Waiheke Map intended to be a resource for visiting and resident cyclists and a supporting website.

8.       The approved project (Sharepoint ID 146) promoting walking and cycling on Waiheke has an unallocated budget amount of $8,000.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

9.       The point of difference for the proposed bike map from existing cycling maps is that it will be independently developed with the aim of serving cyclists of all capabilities as well as local businesses.  The purpose of the bike map is to welcome cyclists to the island, assist with journey planning and provide information for bike related retailers.

10.     The bike map will also identify to cyclists information on hills and elevations, conditions and road surfaces, where to report cycling hazards, incidents and accidents plus water, bike parking and charging station locations.

11.     The estimated costs for the bike map included in the CAW presentation in February 2021 to the local board are as follows:

Design and Development

Estimated Costs

Research, design and development initial printed map

$3,500

Production of map – foldable DLE

$1,500

Online Component

 

Initial website design and development

$2,000

Ongoing website fixed costs/year: domain, server template subs

$1,000

Future Plans

 

Development of bike signage system and consultation with Auckland Transport

$2,000 - $5,000

Investment in ongoing communications and consultation with bike stakeholders to ensure the bike map and website are current

$3,500 - $10,000

 

12.     The initial design and development which includes printing is estimated at $5,000.  The online component which will enable CAW to provide up to date and current information is estimated at an additional $3,000.  Future plans involving consultation with Auckland Transport may require funding in future financial years.

13.     Cycling on Waiheke Island has grown and increasingly visitors are choosing to tour the island by bike, particularly electric bikes. The proposed CAW bike map will assist these visiting cyclists with a useful resource to guide them on their journeys.

14.     As cycling is growing in popularity by both visitors and residents, and CAW is continuing to promote active recreation, sustainable tourism and conservation on Waiheke. Staff consider these very positive and high value outcomes align well with the following Parks, Sports and Recreation outcomes:

·    Enable Aucklanders to get active their way

·    Connect Aucklanders with Nature

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

15.     The development of the CAW bike map aligns with local board goals to grow and strengthen sustainable tourism, informing and promoting to the local community and visitors the environmental benefits of cycling. Benefits will include reducing green house gases and the negative impacts of climate change.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

16.     Auckland Council promotes cycling as a sustainable and healthy transport option for both residents and visitors to the city.  It also supports the promotion of cycling initiatives by external organisations providing this is done appropriately and safely.

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

Local impacts and local board views

17.     The CAW Bike Waiheke Map and website aligns with the following outcomes in the Waiheke Local Board Plan 2020:

·    Outcome 2: A sustainable economy

Initiative: Support eco-tourism on Waiheke that sustains and supports our environment.

·    Outcome 6: Vibrant places for people

Initiative: Explore opportunities to develop new pathways, tracks and

cycleways in accordance with the Waiheke Pathways Plan.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

18.     CAW continuously works with local iwi to enrich CAW cycling events and activities with a strong focus on cultural history of the island and surrounds.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

19.     The PSR 2020/2021 work programme includes the promotion of walking and cycling on Waiheke and the local board has budgeted $20,000 LDI opex for this activity.

20.     At the 6 December 2020 business meeting, the Waiheke Local Board approved $2,000 LDI opex from the walking and cycling budget for the reprint of the Te Ara Hura brochures (WHK/2020/220).

21.     At the 21 April 2021 business meeting, the local board approved $10,000 LDI opex from the walking and cycling budget for the 2021 Waiheke Walking Festival (WHK/2021/60). There remains $8,000 unallocated LDI opex for the financial year 2020/2021.

22.     If the board chose not to fund CAW’s project then the $8,000 budget will be returned to council as a saving.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

23.     Without local board support, there is a risk that CAW will lack sufficient funds to deliver the Bike Waiheke Map and associated website development.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

24.     Following the local board’s decision, staff will notify CAW and proceed with drafting the required funding agreement to transfer the approved funds.

Economic Development Action Plan: Draft for feedback

File No.: CP2021/05986

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To provide 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

Recommendations

That the Waiheke 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.

File No.: CP2021/06452

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       The purpose of the report is to note the board’s formal feedback on the proposed changes to the Freedom Camping Act 2011 and on the Transport and Infrastructure Committee inquiry into congesting pricing in Auckland.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Waiheke Local Board was invited to submit its feedback on the proposed changes to the Freedom Camping Act 2011 for inclusion in council’s submission by 11 May 2021. Since the request for feedback was issued on 28 April 2021, it was not possible to get board for approval of the feedback at a business meeting before the due date. The board’s formal feedback is included with this agenda report as Attachment A.

3.      Where tight deadlines for formal feedback by the board on policy matters prevent approval at a business meeting of the board, the chair is empowered to approve feedback submission via the following resolution.

Local board feedback for inclusion in Auckland Council submissions

Resolution number WHK/2020/54

MOVED by Member R Tucker, seconded by Deputy Chairperson B Upchurch:  

That the Waiheke Local Board:

a)      delegate authority to the chair to approve and submit the local board’s input into Auckland Council submissions on formal consultation from government departments, parliament, select committees and other councils.

b)      note that the local board can continue to use its urgent decision process to approve and submit the local board’s input into Auckland Council submissions on formal consultation from government departments, parliament, select committees and other councils, if the chair chooses not to exercise the delegation sought in recommendation (a).

c)      note that this delegation will only be exercised where the timeframes do not allow for local board input to be considered and approved at a local board meeting.

d)      note all local input approved and submitted for inclusion in an Auckland Council submission is to be included on the next local board meeting agenda for the public record.

CARRIED

 

4.      The Ministry of Business, Employment and Innovation has requested feedback on four proposals regarding freedom camping. In the first instance submitters were asked to choose between Proposals One and Two: Whether to make it mandatory for freedom campers to stay in a vehicle that is certified self-contained (Proposal One) or to make it mandatory for freedom campers to stay in a vehicle that is certified self-contained, unless staying at a site with toilet facilities (Proposal Two). The board supports Proposal Two to give options to campers who cannot afford fully self-contained vehicles.

5.      In its feedback the board supports measures to improve the regulatory controls for government land managers (Proposal Three) and moves to strengthen the requirements for self-contained vehicles (Proposal Four).

6.      On 14 April 2021, local boards were invited to provide input to be considered for inclusion in the council’s submission on parliament’s Transport and Infrastructure Committee inquiry into congestion pricing in Auckland.

7.       The deadline for feedback was 10 May 2021 and the board’s formal feedback is included with this agenda report as Attachment B.

8.      The board submitted that Waiheke residents who commute from the CBD by private vehicle to work locations outside of the CBD should be exempted from any proposed congestion charge.

9.       Members stated that proposed charges would create a financial burden for Waiheke commuters who already faced high fares and a time burden for those who had to access difficult to reach Auckland work locations.
