Climate impact statement

23.    The appointment of controller under the Civil Defence Emergency Management Act 2002 is not a decision that impacts on greenhouse gas emissions or approaches to reduce emissions.

24.    Guidance from the Ministry for the Environment advises that climate change will likely generate higher temperatures, rising sea levels, more frequent extreme weather events and a change in rainfall patterns before the end of the century.

25.    The occurrence of extreme weather events, for example can require Auckland Emergency Management being activated to coordinate an emergency management response under the direction of a controller. Maintaining a cadre of suitably qualified Controllers is an essential part of Auckland’s preparedness for emergencies.

Group Plan Update

File No.: CP2021/16647

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.      To update the Civil Defence and Emergency Management (CDEM) Committee on the progress of the Group Plan review and the intended project plan for this work.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.      Due to the timing of the Auckland Local Election and pre-election period, it is recommended that the objective for completing the group plan is moved to the end of the 2022-2023 financial year.

3.      This adjusted timeline will allow for appropriate consultation (including with Māori, agency partners, and elected members), adequate time to review and incorporate feedback, and appropriate time for the CDEM Group Committee to review the final draft and formally sign-off on the plan. This report seeks approval for the adjusted timeline for the Group Plan review.

4.      Auckland Emergency Management (AEM) have sought advice from Auckland Council democracy services, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and colleagues working to a similar group plan review timeframe in the Bay of Plenty Civil Defence and Emergency Management (CDEM) Group. The adjusted timeline and approach for the Group Plan review has been informed by this advice.

5.      AEM have formally commenced the review of the group plan and issued a public notice on 21 October 2021 in the New Zealand Herald.

6.      AEM are also conducting a review of actions and activities listed in the current 2016 – 2021 Group Plan for the purpose of informing the Group Plan review.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Civil Defence and Emergency Management Committee:

a)      receive the report on the Group Plan update

b)      approve the adjusted timeline for the Group Plan review.

 

Horopaki

Context

7.      The group plan is a statutory requirement of the Civil Defence and Emergency Management Act 2002 (the CDEM Act).

8.      The group plan presents the vision and goals of the Auckland CDEM Group for a five-year period, how Auckland will achieve this vision and a framework for measuring progress. It is designed to be the five-year strategic plan for the group, for key partners and stakeholders involved in CDEM functions, as well as the public within the Auckland region.

 

 

 

9.      The current group plan is titled ‘Working together to build a resilient Auckland – He tāpui tāngata hei āhuru mōwai mo Tāmaki Makaurau’ (which loosely translates to ‘an intertwined root system to give strength and to provide a safe haven for the people of Auckland’). It is dated 2016 – 2021.

10.    The statutory requirement is for CDEM Groups to commence a review of their group plan if it has been operative for five years or more and it is more than five years since the plan has been reviewed. A CDEM group plan remains operative for the period specified in the plan but if the plan is not replaced before the close of that period, it continues in force until replaced.

11.    The original timeline proposed in early 2021 identified the group plan review and sign-off would be completed by December 2022. This did not take into consideration the Auckland Local Elections and wider scope of the work required for the review.

12.    Auckland Local Elections are scheduled to take place on 8 October 2022, with the three-month pre-election period commencing at the beginning of July 2022.

13.    During this pre-election period Auckland Council policy suggested major policy decisions or changes which will significantly impact on the incoming council should not be made during the pre-election period.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

Timeline update

14.    Due to the timing of the 2022 Auckland Local Elections, the timeline for completion of the group plan review it is proposed that the completion date of the Group Plan review is adjusted to the end of the 2022-2023 financial year. This will extend the timeline into 2023.

15.    This will allow for appropriate consultation with Māori, Auckland communities, council stakeholders, agency partners, CDEM Group Committee and, once signed off, endorsement from the Minister of Civil Defence and Emergency Management.  The additional time will incorporate the expected limitations/challenges of the 2022 elections on our elected members and committee.

16.    This will also allow for the current CDEM Group Committee contribution and the contribution of (if any) new members of the CDEM Group Committee following the election.

17.    AEM have sought advice from Auckland Council democracy services, NEMA and colleagues from the Bay of Plenty CDEM Group regarding the amendment to the timeline to incorporate the election period.

18.    At the quarterly Coordinating Executive Group meeting held on 02 November 2021 the group were advised of the recommended timeline adjustment for the Group Plan review\. Following a discussion, the group recognised that the amendment would be prudent. This was supported by the Chair of CEG. 

19.    This report seeks the approval of the CDEM Group Committee to amend the proposed completion goal for the group plan from December 2022 to the end of the 2022-2023 financial year.

Public Notice – Commencement of group plan review

20.    The statutory requirement is for CDEM Groups to commence a review of their group plan if it has been operative for 5 years or more. Under section 52 of the CDEM Act, CDEM Groups are required to give notice to inform the public of the group plan review commencement. 

21.    This public notice was published in the New Zealand Herald on 21 October 2021 and the AEM website has been updated. Once the dates for consultation have been identified, the public will be informed.

Review of the 2016 – 2021 group plan actions

22.    AEM are currently reviewing the actions and activities listed in the 2016 – 2021 Group Plan in consultation with Coordinating Executive Group member agencies.  This work will help inform the Group Plan review. 

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

23.    The amendment to the timeline for the review of the Auckland CDEM Group Plan is not a decision that impacts on greenhouse gas emissions or approaches to reduce emissions.

24.    Guidance from the Ministry for the Environment advises that climate change will likely generate higher temperatures, rising sea levels, more frequent extreme weather events and a change in rainfall patterns before the end of the century.

25.    This guidance, along with expert advice, will be considered within the risk assessment of hazards in the Auckland region required for the group plan.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

26.    The review of the Auckland CDEM Group Plan is a statutory requirement under the CDEM act. Local board elected member views will be included in the review and consultation of the group plan.

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

Local impacts and local board views

27.    The review of the Auckland CDEM Group Plan is a statutory requirement under the CDEM act. Local board elected member views will be included in the review and consultation of the group plan.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

28.    The review of the Auckland CDEM Group Plan is a statutory requirement under the CDEM Act 2002.

29.    AEM intend to work closely with Ngā Mātārae to initiate appropriate engagement with Mata Waka and Mana Whenua to ensure Māori can contribute to the development of the plan and that the Māori world view is appropriately and meaningfully woven into the final document.

30.    AEM are committed to honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi. Ensuring the views and knowledge of Māori and Iwi are incorporated and reflected in the group plan is a non-negotiable requirement of the review.

31.    An emergency event may adversely impact on land, water, sites of significance, wāhi tapu flora or fauna affecting mana whenua and Māori wellbeing in general. Building relationships with mana whenua and mataawaka is a priority for AEM and must include specific engagement on the group plan as the strategic plan for the region for the next five years.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

32.    The costs associated with the group plan review under the CDEM Act will be managed from within existing operational budgets.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

33.    There is a low reputational risk for the group regarding the timing of the review. The current group plan has an operation period of 2016 – 2021, but remains operational until it is revoked, regardless of its stated operational period, with the new plan seeking a 2023 sign-off date, rather than a consecutive 2022 date.

34.    Alternatively, there is a significantly higher reputational risk of compressing the group plan review timeline to before the pre-election period. This would not allow for appropriate consultation with partner agencies, stakeholders, interested groups, Māori and Iwi or allow time to incorporate upcoming strategies and policies. It would also not allow time for the plan document to be designed, translated, and produced. 

35.    The risk of not aligning with statutory requirements associated to reviewing the plan as stated in the CDEM act is very low. The group plan review has formally commenced with the notification of the public under section 52 of the CDEM act. AEM will work closely with NEMA to ensure all requirements of the group plan are met.

36.    There is a low risk associated to the outcomes of the trifecta review. AEM are working closely with NEMA to remain appraised of expected significant policy changes. As it stands, the purpose of the group plan isn’t expected to change. The expected dates for the completion of the review and release of new legislation are subject to Cabinet approval but CDEM groups will be given a grace period to incorporate changes.

37.    Finally, an updated completion goal would also ensure mitigation against interruption from potential future emergency responses as there will be the ability to build in a small amount of flexibility in the timeline as a contingency.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

38.    If approved, the timeline for the review of the group plan will be updated and finalised.

39.    Completion of the review of the current group plan actions and activities.

40.    The next step in the group plan review is reviewing regional risks and understanding their implications.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

8.           The recovery from the Papatoetoe Tornado was the first recovery undertaken in Auckland under the national framework including the Directors Guidelines for Recovery Preparedness and Management (DGL 24/20).


 

 

9.      An update on the recovery will form a part of a presentation to the Committee, together with what has been identified as working well, challenges and opportunities, including:

·    the establishment of the Mayoral Relief Fund worked well, providing a level of support to affected residents were otherwise unable to access

·    existing relationships were able to be leveraged to good effect while indicating the importance of having stronger relationships across the broader Auckland Council group

·    there was a smooth transition from emergency accommodation to temporary accommodation and strong relationships with the Ministry of Social Development and the Temporary Accommodation Service worked well

·    the Papatoetoe Tornado Recovery cut new ground as the first recovery under the revised national framework in Auckland, however, the nature of the recovery meant areas of recovery practice were not tested

·    there is an opportunity to gain insights to incorporate into, and guide future recovery practice from examining recent recovery experience.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

10.    Guidance from the Ministry for the Environment advises that climate change will likely generate higher temperatures, rising sea levels, more frequent extreme weather events and a change in rainfall patterns before the end of the century. These weather events could require Auckland Emergency Management activating to coordinate an emergency management response before transitioning to recovery.

11.    The practice of recovery has received renewed focus in recent years and Auckland Emergency Management has an ongoing work programme to improve preparations for, and the management of recovery. Recovery from the Papatoetoe Tornado provides an opportunity to apply insights and learnings to improve preparations for future events.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

12.    The recovery was a collaborative effort with parts of Auckland Council as reported in the accompanying presentation, Governing Body report and the Papatoetoe Tornado Recovery Plan.

13.    Recommencing work on the business-as-usual recovery work programme, will involve increasing engagement across the Auckland Council group and external organisations most likely involved in collaborative recovery efforts.

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

Local impacts and local board views

14.    Progress on the repair of homes affected by the tornado will be included in the presentation to the Committee. The dedicated email address for the recovery will continue to be passively monitored until closed on Friday, 26 November 2021

53.    The Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board was closely engaged in the recovery from the tornado and the development of the Papatoetoe Tornado Recovery Plan. The Board also received an update of the recovery after the report to the Governing Body. 

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

Provision was made in the Recovery Plan for “Working with local Iwi/Marae to develop greater recognition, understanding and integration of iwi Māori perspectives and Tikanga in emergency management” as a long-term focus.

17.    Working with Iwi/Māori in emergency management has been the focus of recent attention at the national level, as well as element of Auckland Emergency Management/Auckland Council’s support of the national response to Covid-19. Further work is identified as a priority on Auckland Emergency Management’s work programme.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.      Provide the Report on the Recovery from the West and North-West Auckland Floods to the Civil Defence Emergency Management Committee.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.      An adverse weather event over 30-31 August 2021 caused flooding of low-lying areas and slips to parts of west and north-west Auckland affected parts of the Henderson-Massey, Waitakere Ranges and Rodney Local Board areas. 

3.      Auckland Emergency Management activated in response, which transitioned to recovery on 10 September 2021.

4.      The development of a recovery plan was replaced by preparation of the Report on the Recovery from the West and North-West Auckland Floods (the Report), in consultation with the National Emergency Management Agency, as:

·        there were only low numbers of requests for assistance

·        significant activities were being managed by their respective organisations within their business-as-usual processes and resources without the need for coordination across recovery environments.

5.      The Report presents an overall summary of:

·        the storm/rain fall event

·        the response

·        the recovery and completion of activities by their respective Auckland Council business units and organisations, and te Temporary Accommodation Service

·        opportunities to enhance Auckland Emergency Managements’ work programme.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Civil Defence and Emergency Management Committee:

a)      receive the Report on the Recovery from West and North-West Auckland Floods.

 

Horopaki

Context

6.      A slow-moving rain band within a broadscale rain event passing over Auckland bought thunderstorms and localised downpours on 30-31 August 2021. The affected area included parts of the Rodney, Waitakere Ranges and Henderson-Massey Local Boards. Multiple streams and their tributaries drain the Waitakere Ranges and their foothills wind their way to the sea through this area.

 

 

 

7.      Low lying land in southern Rodney, including SH 16 south of Hellensville and areas around Waimauku, Huapai Kumeu and Riverhead experienced flooding, with water entering business premises in Kumeu.

8.      The Waitakere Ranges received higher rainfall than the Auckland average as it did on this occasion. Coastal settlements to the west experienced flooding, slips and washouts. The watershed contributed to the flooding downstream in the Waitakere Ranges and neighbouring local board areas to the east and north. Ten slips affected the local roading network.

9.      Multiple streams and their tributaries drain the Waitakere Ranges and their foothills wind their way to the sea through the western area of the Henderson-Massey Local Board area. Parts of Swanson and Ranui were impacted by flooding.

10.    The Insurance Council New Zealand has advised preliminary figures for insured losses of approximately $56.5m from just over 2,400 claims.

11.    The response to the West and North-West Auckland Floods transitioned to recovery on Friday 10 September 2021. This was the second recovery initiated under the national framework after the Papatoetoe Tornado earlier this year.


 

 

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

Recovery

12.    The national framework for civil defence emergency management comprising the Civil Defence Emergency Management Act 2002, the National Disaster Resilience Strategy, National Civil Defence Emergency Management Plan (Order 2015) and relevant director’s guidelines.

13.    The national framework establishes processes to support recovery from an emergency event, informed by Directors Guidelines; DGL 20/17, Strategic Planning for Recovery and DGL 24/20, Recovery Preparedness and Recovery and the local arrangements thereunder.

14.    The recovery was characterised by different local impacts over a broad area with; flood damage to homes and businesses, storm debris deposited on land and in water courses in low lying areas, and slips causing damage to private property and public infrastructure in the Waitakere Ranges.

15.    There were surprisingly low numbers of requests for assistance received through the response or recovery phases. This may result from the level of resilience amongst communities in the affected area, levels of insurance cover, the Covid-19 environment and arrangements already in place to support families in this environment.

16.    Development of a recovery plan commenced with the assessment of impacts and identification of goals. It became apparent through plan development that some activities would be completed before a recovery plan could be approved. The remaining significant activities were being managed by their respective organisations within their business-as-usual processes and resources without the need for coordination across recovery environments. On this basis, together with the low numbers of requests for assistance the decision was made, in consultation with the National Emergency Management Agency, to prepare a recovery report instead of a recovery plan.

17.    The Report presents an overall summary of:

·        the storm/rain fall event

·        the response

·        the recovery and completion of activities by their respective Auckland Council business units and organisations

·        opportunities to be incorporated into Auckland Emergency Managements’ work to prepare for recovery from emergency events in the future.

18.    Further particulars of the recovery are outlined in the attached Report.

Opportunities

19.    Section 9 of the report identified opportunities to pursue enhancements of Auckland Emergency Management’s work programme. Each will be of benefit to the recovery from future events.

Recovery Preparedness

20.    Business as usual work on recovery is focused on improving arrangements for recovery from future events. Recent experience gained from the Papatoetoe Tornado Recovery and the West and North-West Auckland Flooding Recovery will be incorporated into the recovery work programme outlined in Appendix 2 of the Report.

21.    Arrangements were made earlier in the year, through Local Board Services, to commence workshops with local boards on recovery in October 2022. These workshops have been deferred until 2022, though will benefit from the lessons of recent experience.

Māori Responsiveness Plan

22.    Developing relationships with Māori, iwi and mataawaka is part of Auckland Emergency Management’s broader work programme across the 4 R’s of emergency management - Reduction, Readiness, Response and Recovery, will improve the practice of recovery in Tāmaki Makaurau.

Community Resilience Building

23.    There is an opportunity to Auckland Emergency Management to partner with Auckland Council’s Connected Communities department to help build community connection using a variety of initiatives such as:

·    Growing community connection and collaboration to support communities to develop their own community resilience planning.

·    Hosting multi-stakeholder workshops/network events to supplement information in the Lifestyle Block Emergency Preparedness Handbook and improve emergency resilience of lifestyle block owners.

·    Partnering with the Northwest Country Business Improvement District, to build the businesses community’s resilience to emergency events through the provision of information packs, workshops (online and in person) and follow-up activity (as required).

Early Warning and Operational Responses

24.    This opportunity relates to a specific project of Healthy Waters in a Piha catchment, and potential operational improvements through integration with Auckland Emergency Management systems.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

25.    Guidance from the Ministry for the Environment advises that climate change will likely generate higher temperatures, rising sea levels, more frequent extreme weather events and a change in rainfall patterns before the end of the century.

26.    The Report outlines opportunities identified through the recovery from West and North-West Auckland Floods to benefit the recovery from future emergency events, including intense weather events.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

27.    The Report incorporates input from business units and organisations across the Auckland Council group.

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

Local impacts and local board views

28.    The Report outlines the impacts on part of the Henderson-Massey, Waitakere Ranges and Rodney Local Boards resulting from the stalled rain band within the broadscale rain event that passed over West Auckland on 30-31 August 2021.

29.    The Report is being reported to the Henderson-Massey (Tuesday, 16 November 2021), Rodney (Wednesday, 17 November 2021, and Waitakere Ranges (Tuesday, 23 November 2021) Local Boards to support discussion of the recovery and opportunities to work with local boards in 2022 on future arrangements for the recovery from such events.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

30.    Emergency events may adversely impact land, water, sites of significance, waahi tapu flora or fauna affecting mana whenua and Māori wellbeing in general. The recovery from such events is of significant interest to Māori.

31.    Building relationships with mana whenua and mataawaka as a part of enhancing Auckland Emergency Management’s work programme is identified as an opportunity in the Report.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

32.    The costs associated with the West and North-West Auckland Floods were classified as non-operating costs and not covered by operating budget. The recovery costs will also be examined as a part of the opportunity to gain insights from recent experience to improve the future practice of recovery.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

33.    Section 6 of the Report outlines risks associated with works addressing impacts of the flooding and the rainfall event that caused it. These relate to sourcing construction materials and restrictions associated with Covid-19.

34.    Implementation of Auckland Emergency Management’s work programme and its enhancement are subject to disruption when Auckland Emergency Management is activated to respond to, or recovery from emergencies.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

35.    Ongoing passive monitoring of a dedicated email address established to receive requests from the public.

36.    Reporting to the Henderson-Massey, Rodney and Waitakere Ranges Local Boards.

37.    Recommencing the business-as-usual recovery work programme includes planning to engage local boards on the practice of recovery in 2022
