Feedback on Equity of Service Levels and Funding Proposals - Draft Report

 

Carlos Rahman, Senior Local Board Advisor was in attendance to speak to this report.

 

Resolution number WTM/2021/136

MOVED by Chairperson R Northey, seconded by Member J Sandilands:  

That the Waitematā Local Board:

a)          provide feedback below for consideration by 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:

I)          support the principle of local boards having decision-making responsibility over its local services, service levels and service assets

II)          request that the Governing Body consider the actions listed in Table 1 of the draft report, these actions are required to deliver this greater decision-making responsibility to local board and the internal capability to support those responsibilities

III)           strongly support the principle of local community service funding based on equity rather than assets. We believe this is necessary to address disparity and to ensure that communities living in conditions of high deprivation are not further compromised through council’s services

IV)          strongly support the proposed changes to the funding model, as we believe the changes would ensure fair and balanced distribution of funding

V)           support the scope of decision-making responsibility being proposed as we believe this delegation is appropriate

VI)          support giving local boards the responsibility for developing local area plans within their local board areas with Governing Body consultation and input into the scope of the area plan and then into its content

VII)         support measures that result in giving local boards responsibilities and necessary resources to deliver tailored services to local community priorities

VIII)       support the scope of funding being  allocated based on equity drivers, not based on the asset portfolio

IX)          support and agree with the proposed allocation weightings, including the five per cent allocation based on land value

X)           strongly advocate that a higher weighting be given to deprivation, preferably 25%

XI)          note that land values vary widely across the region and it is only fair that this high proportionate component of providing assets is considered

XII)         note that the average land value per square metre in the Waitematā Local Board area (as demonstrated by the charts in the draft report) is more than five times the median land value across the region and failure to tale it into account would make the cost of providing new assets in Waitematā in response to densification prohibitive

XIII)       note that higher land value often correlates to higher density accommodation where apartment dwellers lack gardens and family space and therefore have a high need for community facilities

XIV)       recommend that land value is taken into account to enable more resources to be retained by other local boards such as Ōrākei and Devonport-Takapuna local boards that would be negatively impacted if deprivation was to be a more important criterion for resourcing

XV)        support the transition towards an equitable funding system over no more than a ten-year period, and believe that inequitable funding allocations should not persist over any longer a period than necessary

XVI)       note that the shared governance structure of Auckland Council has matured over the past ten years, and that the role of local boards in terms of decision making on local issues, activities and services is constrained by the little budget on which local boards have direct control over

XVII)     support the introduction of a visitor services factor for local boards that have significantly more visitors than residents. This would be particularly fair for Waiheke

XVIII)    support the proposed minimum service levels including asset condition as health and safety service levels

XIX)       support the proposed criteria for identifying multi-board services. Noting that the full cost of service criterion will need to be inflation adjusted over time

XX)        support the allocation of funding for multi-board services under the ‘Hybrid’ approach

XXI)       support the proposed approach of host local boards continuing to make the decision but consulting three yearly with other local boards with a significant user base with each local board plan and for any major decisions at any other time

XXII)     recommend that the process for multi board service funding be relatively simple to administer

XXIII)    strongly prefer a substantially increased and increasing allocation to local boards for these services over a ten-year transition period at such a funding level that no  local board loses funding. This would also have the benefit that the negative impacts of the long-term plan’s lower priority for community service assets are reduced and that every area gets adequate services

XXIV)    In the first years of the increased allocation, it should go to those boards that will be catching up most under the new criteria, particularly the increased deprivation level funding. In subsequent years within the ten-year transition period as those particularly disadvantaged boards’ level of required adjustment comes down to that other boards would join in receiving the increased allocation they are entitled to until the equity formula is fully in force in ten years.
