Context

9.       Each year, the local board decides which activities to allocate its annual budget toward through a series of workshops. The local board feedback in these workshops has informed the development of the Infrastructure and Environmental Services work programme (Attachment A).

10.     The proposed work programme responds to the outcomes and objectives identified in the Puketāpapa Local Board Plan 2020. The specific objectives reflected in the work programme are:

·        improve the mauri of awa and the Manukau Harbour

·        we all take care of waterways, parks and public spaces

·        our people live more environmentally friendly lifestyles

·        communities that can adapt to extreme weather events, community health challenges and limited resources.

11.     The following adopted strategies and plans also guided the development of the work programme:

·        Puketāpapa Becoming a Low Carbon Community Action Plan

·        Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan

·        Regional Pest Management Plan.

12.     The development of the work programme has been informed by staff assessments and identification of local environmental priority areas, and feedback received from the local board at workshops.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

13.     The proposed work programme is made up of activities continuing from previous financial years, including annually occurring events or ongoing programmes. These programmes contribute towards the delivery of the Puketāpapa Local Board Plan 2020 environmental objectives, as detailed above.

14.     The work programme (Attachment A) provides a three-year view that demonstrates the phasing or continuation of programme delivery over the 2021/2022, 2022/2023 and 2023/2024 financial years.

15.     This report seeks local board approval for budgets and activities in year one of the three-year work programme (2021/2022), and approval in principle for 2022/2023 and 2023/2024.

16.     Approving in principle does not commit the local board to funding in future years, as the budget for years two and three will still need to be approved on an annual basis. However approval in principle will help staff, contractors and community groups to plan activities and resourcing in the longer-term.

17.     Budgets for years two and three are subject to change, as the programmes are further refined or if local board priorities shift.

18.     The proposed activities for delivery as part of the board’s 2021/2022 Infrastructure and Environmental Services work programme are detailed below, alongside indicative plans and budgets for the 2022/2023 and 2023/2024 financial years:

Bremner Avenue – Mount Roskill schools campus Te Auaunga restoration – $8,500

19.     The local board has indicated it would like to continue to fund weed control and volunteer planting at Bremner Avenue (Te Auaunga) for the 2021/2022 financial year. The local board allocated $6,500 towards this programme in 2020/2021.

20.     The 2021/2022 budget for this programme will be used for contractor site preparation, maintenance and planting along Te Auaunga.

21.     The programme is proposed to be expanded to include the Mount Roskill schools campus to be coordinated by Friends of Oakley Creek, with support from the schools.

22.     Approval in principle is also sought for $10,000 towards this programme from the local board in both 2022/2023 and 2023/2024.

Climate action activator – $40,000

23.     The local board has indicated that it would like to continue to support the climate action activator role in the 2021/2022 financial year. The local board allocated $40,000 towards this programme in 2020/2021.

24.     The budget will support the appointment of an activator to identify initiatives that achieve the carbon reduction targets set by the local board and drive the implementation of the local board’s local climate action plan.

25.     The activator will:

·        develop a work programme to implement the board’s local climate action plan. This work programme will also align with the new Auckland Climate Action Plan (Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri) and other emerging local opportunities

·        report on progress in implementing the low carbon work programme and achieving low carbon action plan outcomes

·        support a range of community-led and local business low carbon activities aligned to the low carbon action plan

·        work with mana whenua and mātāwaka to identify and deliver low carbon outcomes for Māori.

26.     Approval in principle is also sought for $40,000 towards this programme from the local board in both 2022/2023 and 2023/2024.

Climate action network – $11,000

27.     The local board has indicated that it would like to continue to support the climate action network in the 2021/2022 financial year. The local board allocated $11,000 towards this programme in 2020/2021. Both the Waitematā and Whau local boards have indicated they will continue to support the network in 2021/2022.

28.     A low carbon network is a community-led network of individuals, households, community groups, and businesses working together within the local board area to promote, support and implement community level low carbon activities.

29.     The network provides an opportunity for networking and collaboration for residents, businesses and practitioners undertaking low carbon activities in or connected to the local board area, as well as a forum for promoting and hosting low carbon events.

30.     This network will continue to be supported by a community climate action broker, who will empower members of the network. A stronger community resilience to climate change will be achieved through building community connections and sharing skills.

31.     The programme will help implement the local climate action plan in collaboration with the local board and neighbouring climate action networks. In particular, the climate action network will help achieve the local board’s commitment to reduce climate impacts through guiding local action in response to the regional climate emergency.

32.     Approval in principle is also sought for $11,000 towards this programme from the local board in both 2022/2023 and 2023/2024.

EcoNeighbourhoods – $30,000

33.     The local board has indicated that it would like to continue to fund its EcoNeighbourhoods programme in the 2021/2022 financial year.

34.     An EcoNeighbourhood group comprises of groups of six or more neighbours from different households within the local board area, with an objective to adopt sustainable practices and increase resilience within their homes, lifestyles and neighbourhoods.

35.     Staff recommend that the local board allocate $30,000 of its locally driven initiatives operational budget towards the continuation of this programme in the 2021/2022 financial year. This will be the third year that the local board has provided funding towards this programme with $30,000 in the 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 financial years.

36.     The 2021/2022 budget will enable at least six EcoNeighbourhood groups to receive up to 12 hours of facilitation support from the programme manager. The groups can receive up to $1,000 worth of support including incentives, discounts and training to support behaviour change.

37.     EcoNeighbourhood groups decide what sustainable living actions they wish to undertake and a programme manager supports these groups to take action. The activities that groups have or will undertake include carbon footprinting, beekeeping, sustainable food production, water conservation, waste minimisation, energy reduction, and biodiversity initiatives.

38.     Approval in principle is also sought for $40,000 towards this programme from the local board in both 2022/2023 and 2023/2024. The increased funding will allow the programme to expand with more groups.

Low carbon lifestyles – $30,000

39.     The local board has indicated that it would like to continue to fund its low carbon lifestyles programme (formerly named Home Energy Advice) in the 2021/2022 financial year. The local board allocated $50,000 towards this programme in 2020/2021.

40.     This programme involves door knocking homes in a defined geographic area and doorstep conversations with residents. Targeted advice is provided and behaviour change science is employed to elicit commitments to actions that contribute to the programme outcomes.

41.     In 2021/2022 the low carbon lifestyles programme will include additional climate action advice on areas such as food and transport in addition to home energy. The lower funding requested reflects the work undertaken in previous years by the programme.

42.     A minimum of 150 households will be engaged through this programme in 2021/2022, providing door-step advice and collecting baseline data. Approximately ten per cent of the households engaged will also be eligible for practical interventions and extra resources.

43.     Approval in principle is also sought for $30,000 towards this programme from the local board in both 2022/2023 and 2023/2024.

Manukau Harbour Forum – $7,400

44.     The board has indicated that it would like to continue to fund the Manukau Harbour Forum in the 2021/2022 financial year. The board is one of nine local boards who make up the Manukau Harbour Forum (Franklin, Māngere-Ōtāhuhu, Manurewa, Maungakiekie-Tāmaki, Ōtara-Papatoetoe, Papakura, Puketāpapa, Waitākere Ranges, and Whau Local Boards). These local boards border the Manukau Harbour and have an interest in protecting and restoring the mauri of the harbour.

45.     In 2020/2021, each of the member local boards provided $1,750 to co-fund the Manukau Harbour Forum and $43,650 was carried forward from the 2019/2020 financial year. This was allocated to several activities including a Manukau Harbour Forum coordinator, a youth sustainability wānanga, and a youth freshwater monitoring training programme.

46.     Staff recommend that each of the nine member boards contribute a further $7,400 each towards the forum in the 2021/2022 financial year, allowing a total budget of $66,600. Staff recommend that this funding supports:

·        a Manukau Harbour Forum coordinator to assist with the delivery of the forum’s goals ($45,000)

·        funding for a youth sustainability wānanga which would involve around 50 students from all member local board areas to develop leadership skills, sustainability knowledge, and collaborative action projects ($15,000)

·        funding to develop a communications plan for the Manukau Harbour Forum ($6,000).

47.     Approval in principle is also sought for $8,000 towards this programme from each member local board in both 2022/2023 and 2023/2024.

Waikōwhai community pest plant control buffer – $20,000

48.     The local board has indicated that it would like to continue to fund its Waikōwhai community pest plant control buffer programme in the 2021/2022 financial year. The local board allocated $15,000 towards this programme in 2020/2021.

49.     This programme will support private landowners living next to high-value parks and reserves to control invasive weeds, creating a buffer to protect these areas from continued weed invasion. The programme will begin with the coastal reserve area from Lynfield Cove to Hillsborough Bay to reduce pest plants and animals on their properties.

50.     The programme will include:

·        identifying key buffer areas around Waikōwhai

· identifying target weed species to be included for control

·        liaising with owners and occupiers and undertake weed control with permission from the landowner

· providing advice and support for landowners and occupiers.

51.     Approval in principle is also sought for $20,000 towards this programme from the local board in both 2022/2023 and 2023/2024.

Table 1: Climate impact assessment of proposed activities

Activity name

Climate impact

Bremner Ave – Mount Roskill schools campus Te Auaunga restoration

Freshwater ecosystems provide many ecosystem services such as flood mitigation, habitat for native biodiversity and carbon sequestration. These services are enhanced when the ecosystems are restored.

Climate action activator

This programme aims to reduce emissions by enabling implementation of priority actions in the board’s low carbon action plan, including reducing energy use, increasing access to active transport, changing purchasing habits, and reducing carbon footprints.

Climate action network

This programme aims to increase community climate resilience by building community connections and skills sharing.

EcoNeighbourhoods

This programme aim to reduce carbon emissions and increase community resilience to climate impacts, using currently available solutions for immediate progress. Community climate action involves local residents reducing or responding to climate change in personal lifestyle or local community-based ways, creating new social norms.

Low carbon lifestyles

This programme aims to reduce emissions and increase community resilience by lowering household energy consumption.

Manukau Harbour Forum

This programme will provide resilience to the community by ensuring waterways and the marine environment are protected and enhanced. Freshwater and marine ecosystems provide many ecosystem services such as flood mitigation, habitat for native biodiversity and carbon sequestration. These services are enhanced when the ecosystems are restored.

Waikōwhai community pest plant control buffer

The protection of native trees through pest plant control will increase carbon sequestration.

 

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

55.     The work programme was developed through a collaborative approach by operational council departments, with each department represented in the integrated team that presented the draft work programme to the local board at a series of workshops.

56.     In particular, the attached Infrastructure and Environmental Services work programme reflects the integrated activities developed by Environmental Services and Healthy Waters.

57.     Several of the proposed programmes will include collaboration with Parks, Sports and Recreation staff, including the Bremner Avenue (Te Auaunga) restoration and Waikōwhai community pest plant control programmes. Natural Environment Strategy staff will be coordinated with on work related to the Manukau Harbour Forum.

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

Local impacts and local board views

58.     The programmes proposed for inclusion in the board’s Infrastructure and Environmental Services work programme will have positive environmental outcomes across the Puketāpapa Local Board area. Particular focus areas for the 2021/2022 work programme include Bremner Avenue (Mount Roskill schools campus) and Waikōwhai.

59.     The programmes noted above align with the local board plan outcome ‘our environment is protected and enhanced for present and future generations’. The proposed work programme has been considered by the local board in a series of workshops from December 2020 to May 2021. The views expressed by local board members during the workshops have informed the recommended work programme.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

60.     Auckland Council is committed to meeting its responsibilities under Te Tiriti o Waitangi and its broader obligations to Māori.

61.     The work programme includes activities that aim to deliver outcomes for and with Māori, in alignment with the strategic priority areas outlined in Kia ora Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland Council’s Māori Outcome Framework). Progress on how the activities are achieving these outcomes will be reported to the local board on a quarterly basis.

62.     Staff recognise that environmental management, water quality and land management have integral links with the mauri of the environment and concepts of kaitiakitanga.

63.     Table 2 outlines the activities in the 2021/2022 work programme that contribute towards the delivery of kaitiakitanga outcomes.

Table 2: Māori outcome delivery through proposed activities

Activity name

Māori outcome description

Climate action activator

The activator will work with mana whenua and mataawaka to identify and deliver low carbon outcomes for Māori.

Low carbon lifestyles

This programme does not specifically target the housing needs of Māori communities, however according to 2013 census data Māori are more likely to live in rental housing. The home energy advice programme will increase opportunities for promoting and improving living standards that could contribute to better Māori health and wellbeing.

Manukau Harbour Forum

Māori youth will be involved in the youth sustainability wānanga and are supported to develop and implement projects relevant to them and their communities. The wānanga also engages with kaumātua from Makaurau Marae to provide advice and mātauranga Māori that informs programme delivery. During the wānanga, te reo Māori is actively promoted, as a key component of programme delivery.

64.     Where aspects of the proposed work programme are anticipated to have a significant impact on activity of importance to Māori then appropriate engagement will be undertaken.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

65.     The proposed environment work programme for 2021/2022 totals to $146,900 of the board’s locally driven initiatives (LDI) operational budget. This amount can be accommodated within the board’s total draft budget for 2021/2022.

66.     Budgets for activities in the 2022/2023 and 2023/2024 financial years are indicative. While local board approval in principle is being sought for these future years through this report, formal approval will be sought on an annual basis, once budgets and programme costs are confirmed.

67.     If the proposed Infrastructure and Environmental Services work programme is not approved before the start of the financial year, there is a risk that activities may be delayed or not delivered within the financial year.

68.     The COVID-19 pandemic could have a further negative impact on the delivery local board work programmes if the COVID-19 Alert Level changes (New Zealand’s 4-level Alert System specifies measures to be taken against COVID-19 at each level). The deliverability of some activities will decrease if there is an increase to the COVID-19 Alert Level. Drought conditions may also lead to delays in any programmes which involve planting.

69.     Resourcing of the work programme is based on current staff capacity within departments. Therefore, changes to staff capacity may also have an impact on work programme delivery.

70.     Attachment B shows the key risks associated with activities in the proposed 2021/2022 work programme, as well as proposed mitigations.

71.     Where a work programme activity cannot be completed on time or to budget, due to unforeseen circumstances, this will be signalled to the local board at the earliest opportunity.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

72.     Delivery of the activity in the approved work programme will commence once approved and continue until 30 June 2022. Activity progress will be reported to the local board on a quarterly basis.

73.     Where the work programme identifies further decisions and milestones for each activity, these will be brought to the local board when appropriate.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

9.       The proposed activities for delivery as part of the local board’s AUL work programme 2021/2022 are detailed below. See Attachment A for further detail.

Rebel Business School

10.     The Rebel Business School (previously known as (PopUp Business School) provides a free 10-day business school to provide education and support for local people interested in starting their own business. Examples elsewhere have had positive results in terms of the numbers of businesses established. By supporting local residents, by providing entrepreneurial training, the generation of local businesses will be increased and local employment opportunities provided. A contribution from the Ministry of Social Development is also being made.  AUL will manage the contract and provide logistical support on behalf of the Puketāpapa Local Board.

Local Business Mentors

11.     The Regional Business Partnership Programme (RBP) delivered by Auckland Unlimited has, through the COVID-19 Business Advisory Fund, provided almost $13 million of help to over 5,000 businesses across the Auckland region. The COVID-19 fund has now been exhausted. Many SMEs across the region especially smaller businesses will not now be able to access support via the RBP programme and subsequent research has shown there is still significant demand.

12.     A total of 128 businesses in Puketāpapa accessed the RBP over the course of 2020. In the six months July – December 2020 1.6% of subscribers to the RBP were from Puketāpapa an area home to 2.7% of the region’s businesses suggesting uptake has been lower than average, perhaps due to the size and nature of the businesses in the area. All businesses were eligible under the COVID-19 Response package but that won’t be the case going forward and with average business size in Puketāpapa just 2.6 employees (compared to 4.5 regionally) many businesses will now become ineligible.

13.     There are 5,500 businesses in Puketāpapa. Over 5,000 (92.5%) of the area’s businesses have 5 employees or less. These smaller businesses have less access to mainstream government business support and also fewer resources to put towards paying for help to grow their business.

14.     The Small Business Mentoring Service provides up to 12 months of confidential, one-on-one assistance for small business owners who want to grow or need help to solve specific business challenges. Business Mentors have experience and empathy for small business, offering guidance, a sounding board, challenging their thinking, and providing them with an independent and fresh perspective.

15.     Auckland Unlimited (AUL) Business Advisors can make referrals to businesses that contact AUL looking for support for whom the initiative is suited. Also, AUL is able to promote to businesses e.g. via EDM to Puketāpapa businesses that we hold on our database of 20,000 businesses. In addition AUL will seek to utilise the local board’s own channels to their community.

16.     Business Mentors NZ or AUL Business Advisors will be able to assess whether a business will benefit from the support being made available. Any recruitment programme would be strengthened by Business Association support in order to reach their membership.

 

 

Young Enterprise Scheme Kick Start Days Sponsorship

17.     The Auckland Business Chamber, on behalf of the Young Enterprise Trust, delivers the Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) in Auckland. YES is a practical, year-long programme for year 12 and 13 students. 

18.     Fostering youth entrepreneurship is a key requirement for developing an innovative economy and creating employment pathways for our young people. Through the programme, students develop creative ideas into actual businesses, complete with real products and services and real profit and loss. Students learn key work skills and business knowledge including: business fundamentals, planning, interpersonal relations, financial, decision making, reporting, risk management and team work. YES helps create a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship amongst Auckland’s young people.

19.     The funding from the local board will support the delivery of the overall YES program, including the Kick Start days in February 2022 where the Auckland Business Chamber will specifically acknowledge local board support. The Kick start days the first day students get to meet the Young Enterprise team, and find out about their 2022 year, what YES is about, and what is in store for them. All schools in the local board area that have shown an interest in YES are invited. In addition, the invite is extended to those schools who have not shown an interest to enable them to make a decision as to whether to participate.

Local Business Mentors

The Local Business Mentors project will ensure Māori businesses identified on our database and that are a part of the Whariki Māori Business Network are made aware of the programme available.  Data on Māori business participation will be collected as part of AUL’s KPI reporting and will be shared with the local board. The current Business Mentors New Zealand Strategic plan identifies aligning the mentoring service with te ao Māori and expanding the pool of Māori mentors through partnerships such as with Te Puni Kōkiri and Poutama Trust as one of its current strategic objectives.

File No.: CP2021/07980

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To provide local board feedback to the Joint Governance Working Party on the funding and decision-making proposals set out in the Equity of Service Levels and Funding - Draft Report.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The local board has received and discussed the Equity of Service Levels and Funding - Draft Report at its April/May 2021 workshop.

3.       The Draft Report (refer Attachment A) sets out the draft recommendations from the Joint Governance Working Party in relation to:

·    improving the equity of funding allocation across local boards

·    increasing the decision-making responsibility of local boards

·    establishing minimum service levels

·    implications of multi-board services.

4.       The Joint Governance Working Party seeks local board feedback on these proposals to consider in the preparation of a final set of proposals to be reported to the Governing Body.

5.       The local board’s feedback on these proposals (refer Attachment B) has been prepared on the template provided.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Puketāpapa Local Board:

a)      provide feedback using the attached template (Attachment B) to the Joint Governance Working Party on the funding and decision-making proposals set out in the Equity of Service Levels and Funding Proposals – Draft Report.

 

Horopaki

Context

6.       In October and November 2020 workshops, local boards considered and provided input on the Equity of Service Levels and Funding Discussion paper which presented options, in respect of local community services, to:

·        increase local board decision making responsibility

·        increase equity of funding allocation between local boards

·        establish minimum service levels where required

·        address funding of multi-board services and decision-making on their service levels.

7.       The Joint Governance Working Party considered this local board input and provided direction to staff in the preparation of the funding and decision-making proposals of the Equity of Service Levels and Funding Draft Report (refer Attachment A).

8.       Staff presented the Draft Report to local boards in workshops between 6 April and 6 May 2021.

9.       The purpose of this report is to enable the local board to provide formal feedback on the draft recommendations which propose:

·        changes to local board decision-making responsibilities over local community services

·        implementation of an equity-based funding allocation approach for local community services.

10.     These matters will be reported to the Joint Governance Working Party and then to the Governing Body later this year. If adopted, public consultation would be undertaken with the aim of implementing decisions progressively between 2022 and 2024.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

11.     These proposals (refer Attachment A) are significant changes. If adopted by the Governing Body, these recommendations would:

·        increase local board decision-making responsibilities over community services

·        change the allocation of Asset Based Services (ABS) funding to local boards

·        require collaboration between local boards on some multi-board service decisions

·        have a high community interest

·        not affect existing local board responsibility for Local Discretionary Initiatives (LDI) service decisions or the current LDI funding approach.

12.     Feedback on these proposals is sought from the local board to assist the Joint Governance Working Party in providing direction to staff and the Governing Body on progressing these proposals.

13.     The Working Party’s final report to the Governing Body will also update illustrative funding outcomes with asset values and ABS budgets updated and adopted under Long-term Plan 2021-31. Funding outcomes remain illustrative until funding model and financial inputs are adopted, planned for Long-term Plan 2024-34.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

14.     Providing feedback on the draft report does not have a direct impact on climate change.

15.     Changes made to local community services as a result of the proposed policy may have a climate impact and will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

16.     If adopted, the proposed policy will impact on several divisions of the council including Customer and Community Services, Finance and Governance. Staff from these divisions have been involved in the development of these proposals.

17.     Staff from these divisions will also be significantly involved in the implementation of Governing Body decisions on the proposals. A critical implementation workstream will ensure staff have the capacity and the knowledge required to enable sound advice to be provided to local boards under these proposals.

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

Local impacts and local board views

18.     Over time, these proposals have the potential to fundamentally change local community service delivery depending on the extent to which local boards and their communities make changes.

19.     Local boards have discussed policy options in workshops in October and November 2021 and considered the proposed policy in workshops in April and May 2021. Local boards can also provide their input and views through their representatives on the Joint Governance Working Party.

20.     This report provides the opportunity for local boards to provide their formal feedback on the Draft Report proposals.

21.     More detailed discussion of the local implications of the policy proposal is included in the Draft Report, provided as Attachment A.

22.     As part of increased decision-making for asset-based services, and under local government legislation, local boards must demonstrate how Māori are involved, and their needs are reflected, in these decisions. This means that in making service decisions, local boards should be able to:

·        demonstrate effective Māori involvement in the local board planning processes

·        clearly articulate Māori priorities in local board funding and delivery of asset-based services.

23.     It is likely that these changes will result in more responsive services for Māori communities at the local level.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

24.     Introduction of the proposed policy would have several significant financial impacts, including:

·        changes to local board funding allocations that may result in funding increases for some local boards and funding decreases for others

·        broader local board decision-making responsibilities that will require greater flexibility in how local boards allocate their funding to service delivery

·        local board decisions which would include service impacts on assets, such as investment, enhancement, renewal, optimisation and removal from service.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

25.     Development of the proposed policy involved several workshops with each local board. Several local boards requested additional workshops on the proposals as their implications became better understood.

26.     A range of risks associated with approval and implementation of these proposals were discussed during workshops and considered in the development of these proposals, including:

·        whether there will be sufficient understanding of the proposals and support for their benefits to enable them to be adopted

·        what alternative approaches might address the issues these proposals seek to address, should they not proceed

·        developing alternative funding equity transition options including implications on local board funding and overall timing

·        developing options to respond to concerns of local boards which might be adversely affected by equity funding proposals

·        addressing local board concerns for the perceived downside of greater decision-making responsibility if the level of decision support does not increase

·        ensuring the organisation is structured, resourced and adequately supported to provide the quality service advice needed by local boards to make well-informed decisions.

27.     Plans are either in place or currently being developed to address these risks. The proposed two stage implementation timeline (see below) is designed to progressively grow the council capability, develop robust processes, and ensure effective and transparent management of necessary changes.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

28.     Staff will report local board feedback to the Joint Governance Working Party which will consider this feedback, along with further staff advice, and provide its recommendations to the Governing Body later this year.

29.     The Governing Body would undertake public consultation on its draft decisions as follows:

·        under the Annual Plan 2022/23, in the case of changes to the Allocation of Decision-making Responsibilities policy

·        under the Long-term Plan 2024-2034, in the case of changes to the Local Board Funding policy.

30.     Proposals adopted by the Governing Body would be progressively implemented from 2022 to 2024.

3.       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.

 

4.       The Puketāpapa Local Board adopted the Puketāpapa Local Board Community Grants Programme 2020/2021 on 21 May 2020 (Attachment A). The document sets application guidelines for community contestable grants.

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

6.       The local board has set a total community grants budget of $138,543 for the 2020/2021 financial year.

Analysis and advice

5.       The aim of the local board grants 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

7.       The local board grants programme aims to respond to Auckland Council’s commitment to address climate change by providing grants to individuals and groups with projects that support community climate change action. Community climate action involves reducing or responding to climate change by residents in a locally relevant way. Local board grants can contribute to expanding climate action by supporting projects that reduce carbon emissions and increase community resilience to climate impacts. Examples of projects include:

·    local food production and food waste reduction

·    decreasing use of single-occupancy transport options

·    home energy efficiency and community renewable energy generation

·    local tree planting and streamside revegetation

·    education about sustainable lifestyle choices that reduce carbon footprints.

Adoption of the Puketāpapa Local Board Agreement 2021/2022

File No.: CP2021/07727

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To adopt the local content for the 10-year Budget, which includes the Puketāpapa Local Board Agreement 2021/22, the message from the chair, and local board advocacy.

2.       To adopt a local fees and charges schedule for 2021/2022.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

3.       Each financial year, Auckland Council must have a local board agreement, as agreed between the Governing Body and the local board, for each local board area.

4.       From 22 February to 22 March 2021, council consulted on the proposed 10-year Budget 2021-2031. Local boards considered this feedback and then held discussions with the Finance and Performance Committee on 12 May 2021 on regional issues, community feedback, and key local board initiatives and advocacy areas.

5.       Local boards are now considering local content for the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 which includes a local board agreement, a message from the chair, and local board advocacy, as well as a local fees and charges schedule for 2021/2022.

6.       On 29 June 2021, the Governing Body will meet to adopt Auckland Council’s 10-year Budget 2021-2031, including 21 local board agreements.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Puketāpapa Local Board:

a)      adopt the local content for the 10-year Budget, which includes the Puketāpapa Local Board Agreement 2021/22, the message from the chair, and local board advocacy (Attachment A).

b)      adopt a local fees and charges schedule for 2021/2022 (Attachment B).

c)      delegate authority to the Chair to make any final changes to the local content for the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 (the Puketāpapa Local Board Agreement 2021/22, message from the chair, and local board advocacy).

d)      note that the resolutions of this meeting will be reported back to the Governing Body when it meets to adopt the 10-year Budget 2021-2031, including each Local Board Agreement, on 29 June 2021.

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       Local board plans are strategic documents that are developed every three years to set a direction for local boards. Local board plans influence and inform the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 which outlines priorities, budgets and intended levels of service over a 10-year period. For each financial year, Auckland Council must also have a local board agreement, as agreed between the Governing Body and the local board, for each local board area.

8.       Throughout the development of the 10-year Budget 2021-2031, local board chairs (or delegated local board representatives) have had the opportunity to attend Finance and Performance Committee workshops on key topics and provide local board views on regional issues being considered as part of the 10-year Budget 2021-2031.

9.       From 22 February to 22 March 2021, the council consulted with the public on the 10-year Budget 2018-2028. one locally held event was held in the Puketāpapa Local Board area to engage with the community and seek feedback on both regional and local proposals.

10.     A report analysing the feedback on local board priorities, as well as feedback from those living in the local board area related to the regional issues, was included as an attachment on the 06 May 2021 business meeting agenda.

11.     Local boards considered this feedback, and then held discussions with the Finance and Performance Committee at a workshop on 12 May 2021 on regional issues, community feedback and key local board initiatives and advocacy areas.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

12.     Both staff and the local board have reviewed the local feedback received as part of  consultation on 10-year Budget 2021-2031 and local boards have received a report analysing the local feedback. It is now recommended that local boards adopt local content for the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 (Attachment A), including the Local Board Agreement 2021/2022, the message from the chair, and local board advocacy, as well as a local fees and charges schedule for 2021/2022 (Attachment B).

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

13.     The decisions recommended in this report are procedural in nature and will not have any climate impacts themselves.

14.     Some of the proposed projects in the Local Board Agreement may have climate impacts. The climate impacts of any projects Auckland Council chooses to progress with will be assessed as part of the relevant reporting requirements.

15.     Some of the proposed projects in the Local Board Agreement will be specifically designed to mitigate climate impact, build resilience to climate impacts, and restore the natural environment.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

16.     Local boards worked with council departments to develop their local board work programmes for 2021/2022 that will be adopted at June business meetings. The local board work programmes help inform the local board agreements.

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

Local impacts and local board views

17.     This report seeks local board adoption of its content for the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 and other associated material, including the Local Board Agreement 2021/2022.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

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

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

20.     Of those who submitted to the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 from the Puketāpapa Local Board area 12 identified as Māori. Four mana whenua and two mataawaka entities made a submission on both Puketāpapa local board priorities and the 10-year Budget 2021-2031. These submissions were provided to the local board for consideration at local board workshops during the development of their local board agreement.

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

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

22.     The local board agreement includes the allocation of locally driven initiatives (LDI) funding and asset based services (ABS) funding to projects and services for the 2021/2022 financial year.

23.     LDI funding is discretionary funding allocated to local boards based on the Local Board Funding Policy (included in the 10-year Budget), which local boards can spend on priorities for their communities. Local boards can also utilise LDI funding to increase local levels of service if they wish to do so.

24.     Funding for asset based services (ABS) is allocated by the Governing Body to local boards based on current levels of service to run and maintain local assets and services including parks, pools and recreation facilities, community facilities, and libraries.

25.     A local fees and charges schedule for 2021/2022 is adopted alongside of the Local Board Agreement 2021/2022. The fees and charges have been formulated based on region-wide baseline service levels and revenue targets. Where fees and charges are amended by a local board that results in lower revenue for the council, the shortfall will need to be made up by either allocating LDI funds or reducing expenditure on other services to balance overall budgets.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

26.     Decisions on the local content of the 10-year Budget 2021-2031, including the Local Board Agreement 2021/2022 and a local fees and charges schedule for 2021/2022, are required by 17 June 2021 to ensure the Governing Body can adopt the final 10-year Budget 2021-2031, including each Local Board Agreement, at its 29 June 2021 meeting.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

27.     The resolutions of this meeting will be reported to the Governing Body on 29 June 2021 when it meets to adopt the 10-year Budget 2021-2031, including 21 local board agreements.

28.     It is possible that minor changes may need to be made to the attachments before the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 is adopted, such as correction of any errors identified and minor wording changes. Staff therefore recommend that the local board delegates authority to the Chair to make any final changes if necessary.

29.     Local board agreements set the priorities and budget envelopes for each financial year. Work programmes then detail the activities that will be delivered within those budget envelopes. Work programmes will be agreed between local boards and operational departments at business meetings in June 2021.

Delegation of feedback to be provided to the Establishment Unit Board of the City Centre to Māngere light rail project

File No.: CP2021/07867

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To formally delegate one local board member to provide feedback to the Establishment Unit Board of the City Centre to Māngere light rail project.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       An Establishment Unit is being set up by the Cabinet to provide the public face of the City Centre to Māngere light rail project, undertake stakeholder and community engagement, and take forward work to resolve key outstanding questions in relation to project scope and delivery. A key output of the unit will be to develop a business case over approximately six months which looks at the available options.

3.       The work of the Establishment Unit will be guided by an inclusive governance structure made up of representatives of central and local government, Treaty partners and an independent chairperson.

4.       Minister of Transport Hon Michael Wood wrote to local board members in May 2021 inviting local board members to select a single representative to be appointed to the Establishment Unit Board. At the May 2021 Chairs’ Forum, Margi Watson was selected for this role.

5.       The Establishment Unit now has until early September 2021 to gather the views of local boards, ward councillors, and the public.

6.       Staff are requesting that local boards delegate a member to provide feedback on behalf of the local board, to ensure that feedback can be provided in a short timeframe after public feedback has been collated and provided to the local board.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Puketāpapa Local Board:

a)      delegate one local board member to provide feedback on behalf of the local board to the Establishment Unit Board of the City Centre to Māngere light rail project.

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       In March 2021, the Cabinet met to agree how to progress the next steps for the City Centre to Māngere light rail project (CC2M).

8.       To give effect to this, the Cabinet has directed that an Establishment Unit be set up to provide the public face of the project, undertake stakeholder and community engagement, and take forward work to resolve key outstanding questions in relation to project scope and delivery entity.

9.       The Establishment Unit Board will be chaired by an independent chair appointed by the Minister of Transport and the Minister of Finance. Membership will comprise:

·        a single representative (the chief executive or a senior delegate) from Auckland Council, Auckland Transport, Waka Kotahi, Kāinga Ora and the Ministry of Transport

·        a representative from mana whenua

·        a representative of Auckland Council’s local boards (Margi Watson)

·        a representative of Auckland Council’s Governing Body (Chris Darby)

·        Te Waihanga (the New Zealand Infrastructure Commission) and Treasury will support the work of the Establishment Unit Board as observers.

10.     A key output of the unit will be to develop a business case over approximately six months which looks at the available options. This will enable quality decisions on key matters based on evidence, such as mode, route alignment and delivery.

11.     The Mayor and Deputy Mayor have been invited to join Minister of Transport Hon Michael Wood and Minister of Finance Hon Grant Robertson as sponsors of this project. This sponsors group will play an important function in ensuring political alignment on the project between central and local government and setting strategic direction.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

12.     The Auckland Light Rail team will be engaging with local boards first so that local board members are clear about the scope and programme of engagement.

13.     This will take place as follows:

·        11 June: briefing the six local boards that are within the planned corridor for light rail - Waitematā, Albert-Eden, Puketāpapa, Maungakiekie-Tāmaki, Māngere-Ōtāhuhu and Ōtara-Papatoetoe

·        14 June: presentation to Chairs’ Forum

·        30 June: inviting local board chairs or their delegate to attend a Planning Committee briefing

·        Further briefings will be organised to take place after the public consultation period in July/ August 2021.

14.     Staff will focus on providing local board members with an understanding of the approach being taken by the Establishment Unit and key constraints, so that local board members can respond to any queries they received and champion the engagement process within their community.

15.     Throughout the engagement period, the Establishment Unit will be seeking broad views, key themes (could be geographically based) and feedback on the outcomes the project is set to achieve. This will mirror the public engagement process that will also focus on outcomes and community experience.

16.     In order to ensure that there is adequate time for local boards to review public feedback ahead of providing local board feedback, staff are recommending that local boards delegate a member to provide the local board’s feedback

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

17.     Delegating to one local board member the authority to provide feedback to the Establishment Unit Board of the City Centre to Māngere light rail project does not have any quantifiable climate impacts.

18.     The Establishment Unit Board will have an opportunity to consider climate impacts as part of making recommendations on the project.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

19.     The Mayor and Deputy Mayor have been invited to join the Minister of Transport Hon Michael Wood and Minister of Finance Hon Grant Robertson as sponsors of the project.  The project sponsors will set the strategic direction for the project, including the project scope and engagement plans, and maintain political cooperation between central government and Auckland Council with regards to the project.

20.     The Governing Body representative and the local board representative will be joined by the Chief Executive as the representatives of Auckland Council on the Establishment Unit Board.

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

Local impacts and local board views

21.     This delegation will provide the opportunity for all local boards to provide formal feedback to the Establishment Unit Board within the given timeframe of this first stage of work.

22.     Margi Watson, as the local board representative on the Establishment Unit Board, will develop good lines of communication with other local board members. Having a local board representative on the Establishment Unit Board is not a proxy for local board engagement on this project and does not replace the need to obtain feedback from local boards.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

23.     The work of the Establishment Unit will be guided by an inclusive governance structure made up of representatives of central and local government, Treaty Partners and an independent chairperson.

24.     A key function of the Establishment Unit will be to undertake high quality engagement with communities, stakeholders, mana whenua and mataawaka. 

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

25.     Delegating to one local board member the authority to provide feedback to the Establishment Unit Board of the City Centre to Māngere light rail project does not have any financial implications.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

26.     No risks have been identified for delegating to one local board member the authority to provide feedback to the Establishment Unit Board of the City Centre to Māngere light rail project.

27.     The risks of not appointing a delegate may be that formal feedback is not able to be provided by the local board within the relevant timeframe or may need to be provided via the urgent decision mechanism.

Seeking local board views on Hīkina te Kohupara - Kia Mauri ora ai te iwi submission: Pathways to Net Zero by 2050

File No.: CP2021/07621

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek formal input from Puketāpapa Local Board into Auckland Council’s submission on the Hīkina te Kohupara – Kia mauri ora ai te iwi: Transport Emissions: Pathways to Net Zero by 2050.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Ministry of Transport is consulting on the discussion document Hīkina te Kohupara – Kia mauri ora ai te iwi: Transport Emissions: Pathways to Net Zero by 2050 (Hīkina te Kohupara). Hīkina te Kohupara identifies what Aotearoa could do to shift the transport system onto a pathway to zero emissions by 2050.

3.       Hīkina te Kohupara will inform Government’s first Emissions Reduction Plan (due to be released at the end of December 2021) and support the development of a 10-15 year transport emissions action plan for New Zealand.

4.       There are many similarities between Hīkina te Kohupara and the Climate Change Commission’s draft advice, which many local boards provided feedback on. Notable differences include a greater emphasis in Hīkina te Kohupara on the impact of urban development, street design and mode shift interventions in reducing transport emissions. Freight also features more prominently in Hīkina te Kohupara.

5.       Auckland Council’s Transport Strategy Team and Auckland Transport are preparing a joint submission on Hīkina te Kohupara. The submission process closes on 25 June 2021.

6.       Local board views on Hīkina te Kohupara received by 23 June 2021 will be appended to Auckland Council’s submission.

7.       Staff will take a report to the Environment and Climate Change Committee meeting on 10 June 2021 that will set out proposed high level positions in response to key policy matters and seek delegation for a political working party to finalise the submission.

8.       The table below sets out the key timeframes for local board input into the Hīkina te Kohupara discussion document:

10 June 2021

Environment and Climate Change Committee considers report on Hīkina te Kohupara and provides delegated authority for final submission

17 June 2021

Draft submission circulated to all elected members

23 June 2021

Final deadline for local board views to be appended to submission

Seeking local board views on He Tūāpapa ki te Ora: Infrastructure for a Better Future, Aotearoa New Zealand Infrastructure Strategy

File No.: CP2021/08111

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek formal input from Puketāpapa Local Board into Auckland Council’s submission on Te Waihanga New Zealand Infrastructure Commission's consultation document, He Tūāpapa ki te Ora: Infrastructure for a Better Future, Aotearoa New Zealand Infrastructure Strategy.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The New Zealand Infrastructure Commission, Te Waihanga, is an autonomous Crown entity with an independent board, officially formed on 25 September 2019. The Commission seeks to lift infrastructure planning and delivery to a more strategic level and by doing so, improve New Zealanders’ long term economic performance and social wellbeing.

3.       A key function of the Commission is to produce a 30-year infrastructure strategy to replace the government’s current 30-year plan. In addition, the Commission has progressively developed a pipeline of infrastructure projects which is published quarterly.

4.       The Commission has released its consultation document He Tūāpapa ki te Ora, Infrastructure for a Better Future which sets out the approach that it proposes to take in developing its draft 30-year Infrastructure Strategy. This consultation is open for public submission from 12 May, with a closing date of 24 June.

5.       Auckland Council has previously provided input to the Commission’s Asset Owner Survey, which was a key input in informing their draft 30-year Infrastructure Strategy. This work identified infrastructure challenges and opportunities across different sectors. Some of the key themes identified included funding and financing challenges, asset management and procurement, natural hazards and climate change, and the challenges of moving to a low emissions economy.

6.       This is the main and final opportunity for Auckland Council to input into the development of the Commission’s draft 30-year Infrastructure Strategy. Following consultation, the Commission will finalise the 30-year Infrastructure Strategy and present it to the Minister for Infrastructure in September 2021. Local board formal feedback is due on 17 June 2021.

7.       The table below sets out the key timeframes for elected member input into the submission:

Local board feedback on the draft Statement of Expectations for Council-Controlled Organisations (CCOs)

File No.: CP2021/08114

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To provide Puketāpapa local board feedback on the draft Statement of Expectations (SOE) for Council Controlled Organisations (CCOs), authorised by the Chair, J Fairey under delegation.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       Section 64B in the Local Government Act 2002 (the Act) allows for Council to issue a ‘Statement of Expectations’ to its Council-controlled Organisations (CCOs). This is a new power inserted into the Act in late 2019.

3.       In August 2020, the Governing Body received the report of the independent CCO Review.  Among the 64 recommendations, the review panel recommended that Council use section 64B of Local Government Act 2002, which allows local authorities to issue a Statement of Expectations to its CCOs.

4.       A Statement of Expectations will provide guidance on how CCOs should undertake their business, as compared to the Accountability Policy contained in the Long-term Plan, which focusses on what CCOs must do.  As it will not be part of the Long-term Plan and therefore not subject to the special consultative procedure, it will be easier to amend than the Accountability Policy, as it is refined over time.

5.       The SOE contains a number of elements which previously were in the Accountability Policy. Therefore, there is some urgency for an initial SOE to be confirmed around the same time as the Ten-Year Budget/Long-term Plan so that those expectations on CCOs remain in place.  Given this, the Statement of Expectations is intended to reflect existing and established practice. This is true of the material in relation to local boards, which re-states and reinforces the shared governance model of Auckland Council and CCOs obligations to local boards within that.

6.       Auckland Council staff recognise however, that the CCO Review also contained a number of recommendations which are currently being worked on, which will affect how CCOs work within the governance system and with local boards.  It is anticipated therefore that the SOE is likely to be subject to a relatively early revision to take account of these changes.

7.       A report was provided to Puketāpapa local board in April, seeking the board view on the Statement of Expectations.

8.       The Puketāpapa local board provided feedback on the draft revised Code of conduct on 6 May 2021, authorised by delegation to the Chair, Julie Fairey, in accordance with Puketāpapa Local Board resolution PKTPP/2021/1 made on 15 April 2021.

9.       A copy of the board’s submitted feedback has been included in the Recommendations section of this brief report below.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Puketāpapa Local Board:

a)      Note the following feedback on the draft Statement of Expectations for Council Controlled Organisations (CCOs), the board:

i)          supports the issuance of a Statement of Expectations to CCOs pursuant to 64B of the Local Government Act 2002.

ii)       notes the following remarks of the Independent Panel on the Review of Council Controlled Organisations in 2020:

A)        Council needs to give CCOs clear strategic direction to translate the council’s high-level plans into practical work programmes

B)      The council’s many plans, policies and strategies offer almost no practical strategic direction to CCOs. They do not contain careful, detailed information about the council’s expectations of CCOs so they can set their work programmes and priorities accordingly

C)     Plans and policies are often too broad and lacking in specifics, and require considerable interpretation by CCOs to make them operational

D)     Letters of expectation are too vague and fail to give CCOs adequate guidance in preparing their statements of intent

E)      CCOs’ interactions with local boards does not result in effective accountability. CCOs largely inform local boards about projects in their area rather than seek real input into their design. CCOs are also not sufficiently responsive to local boards’ concerns and do not co-ordinate their efforts in local board areas with other CCOs

F)      Council rewrites its Governance Manual for Substantive CCOs so the focus is squarely on its expectations of CCOs, removing policies to a separate document and requiring incoming directors and senior managers to read the manual.

iii)      is concerned that the draft Statement of Expectations (SOE) is too high level and will not provide the requisite detail to CCOs of council’s expectations on “how” CCOs must undertake their business.  It is necessary that the adoption of an SOE leads to a meaningful understanding of expectations and a change in approach.

iv)        believes that the wording of the draft SOE, specifically to “build good relationships” and “consult” with local boards does not recognise them as governors but continues to treat them as one of many stakeholders.

v)         provides the following specific feedback:

A)      Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri (Auckland’s Climate Plan) should be explicitly mentioned as it has been agreed at the political level that it should be the lens on all council work

B)      CCOs should develop plans to support local board governance, for instance annual work programmes or community engagement plans.  This should include prioritisation of the CCOs work programmes and delivery in each local board area.

C)     endorse the focus on requiring CCO’s to understand and give effect to Tāmaki Makaurau’s shared governance model.

D)     request the addition of a specific requirement for CCOs to take account of Local Board Plans when developing work programmes.

E)      recommend including reference to the value of using common processes across the Council family, when appropriate, particularly as the public do not see CCOs and Council as separate from each other.

F)      require clarity on the reporting back mechanism for progress against the SOE, including how local boards will be included in evaluating progress and receiving progress reports.
