TERMS OF REFERENCE

(Excerpt – full terms of reference available as a separate document)

 

The terms of reference set out the purpose, role and protocols of the Panel.

Panel members abide by the Code of Conduct for members of Auckland Council advisory

panels.

 

Purpose

As one of council’s engagement mechanisms with diverse communities, the demographic

advisory panels provide advice to the governing body and council staff within the remit of the

Auckland Plan on the following areas:

 

Outcomes

The panel’s advice will contribute to improving the outcomes of diverse communities and

social cohesion as set out in the Auckland Plan. The panel will advise through their agreed

strategic agenda and detailed work programme.

 

Strategic agenda and work programme

The panel must develop a work programme and set a strategic agenda for the term. The

agendas should be focused and integrated across the panels for collaborative input into

shared agendas, particularly on the Auckland Plan, the Long-term Plan and annual plans.

The panel should advise on council’s organisational strategies relevant to diverse

communities.

The governing body and council staff should work with the panel for the development of their

strategic agendas and work programme. An appropriate committee will approve the panel’s

work programme and any subsequent major changes to it.

 

Submissions

The panel must not make formal submissions to Auckland Council on council strategies,

policies and plans, for example, the annual plan.

In its advisory role to the council, the panel may have input to submissions made by the

council to external organisations but do not make independent submissions, except as

agreed with the council.

This does not prevent individual members being party to submissions outside their role as

panel members.

 

Review

The form and functioning of the panels may be reviewed prior to or after, the end of the

panel’s term in September 2022.
