Endorsing Business Improvement District (BID) targeted rate grants for 2022/2023

File No.: CP2022/00478

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To recommend to the Governing Body the setting of the targeted rates for the Howick Village and Greater East Tāmaki Business Improvement District (BID) programmes for the 2022/2023 financial year.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) are rohe within Tāmaki Makaurau, where local business and property owners have agreed to work together to improve their business environment, encourage resilience and attract new businesses and customers.

3.       Auckland Council supports business associations operating BID programmes, including Howick Village Association (HVA) and Greater East Tāmaki Business Association (GETBA), by collecting a targeted rate from business rated properties within a defined geographic area. The funds from the targeted rate are then provided by way of a BID targeted grant to the relevant business association.

4.       Under the Auckland Council shared governance arrangements, local boards are allocated several decision-making responsibilities in relation to BID programmes. One of these is to annually recommend BID targeted rates to the Governing Body.

5.       Each business association operating a BID programme sets the BID targeted rate grant amount at its Annual General Meeting (AGM) when members vote to approve an operational budget for the following financial year. This budget funds the implementation of a business plan that delivers programmes based on each association’s BID strategic priorities.

6.       HVA members approved a BID targeted rate grant sum of $179,390 for 2022/2023. This figure is unchanged from the current financial year.

7.       GETBA members approved a BID targeted rate grant sum of $545,000 for 2022/2023. This figure is unchanged from the current financial year.

8.       The business associations operating BID programmes are incorporated societies that are independent of the council. However, to sustain public trust and confidence in the council, there needs to be a balance between the independence of the business associations and the accountability for monies collected by a public sector organisation.

9.       For the council to be confident that the targeted rate grant funds provided to the BID-operating business associations are being used appropriately, the council requires the BIDs to comply with the Business Improvement District (BID) Policy (2016) (Kaupapa Here ā-Rohe Whakapiki Pakihi), known as the BID Policy. 

10.     The council staff regularly monitor compliance with the BID Policy and this report is part of an active risk management programme to minimise inappropriate use of funds.

11.     Staff are satisfied both HVA and GETBA sufficiently comply with the BID Policy.

12.     Staff propose the Howick Local Board receives this report and recommends to the Governing Body the striking (setting) of the BID targeted rate grants sought by HVA and GETBA as part of the council’s Annual Budget 2022/2023 decision-making.

13.     After the Annual Budget is approved, the council collects the targeted rate funds and distributes them in quarterly BID grant payments, effective from 1 July 2022. This enables HVA and GETBA to implement programmes that contribute to Outcome 5. A prosperous local economy supporting business growth and opportunity, thereby supporting the aspirations of the Howick Local Board Plan 2020.

14.     Howick’s BID programmes, managed by the two BID-operating business associations, will continue to play an important role in supporting its members facing two global challenges. A BID programme can support local businesses to mitigate some of the economic flow-on effects from the COVID 19 pandemic through business resilience and recovery initiatives. A BID programme can also facilitate opportunities that address the climate change emergency, with a focus on sustainability.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Howick Local Board:

a)      recommends to the Governing Body the setting of the targeted rates for inclusion in the Annual Budget 2022/2023 for the following Business Improvement District (BID) programmes:

i.        $179,390 for Howick Village Association.

ii.       $545,000 for Greater East Tāmaki Business Association.

Context

BID programmes promote economic well-being and collaboration with the council

15.     The Auckland Council Growth Model 2021-2051 reports Tāmaki Makaurau is projected to include approximately 660,000 more people in the next 30 years. This level of population growth presents challenges and opportunities for Auckland town centres and commercial precincts.

16.     Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) are rohe within Auckland where local business and property owners have agreed to work together, with support from the council, to improve their business environment, promote innovation and attract new businesses and customers.

17.     The BID programme does not replicate services provided by the council but channels the capabilities and knowledge of the private sector to improve economic outcomes and achieve common goals.

18.     BID programmes provide the opportunity for the council group to work with business associations to seize on the opportunities from Auckland’s growth. 

19.     BID programmes encourage collaboration to achieve greater local outcomes. They provide a mechanism to enable local boards to engage with the business sector in local town centres and business areas in a co-ordinated way.

BID programmes provide essential support in building business resilience and aiding economic recovery

20.     The economy continues to be impacted by the flow-on effects from the COVID-19 pandemic affecting both retail-based town centres and industrial precincts.

21.     BID-operating business associations provide the local business leadership required to help their members to mitigate some of the economic effects of the pandemic through business resilience and recovery initiatives.

BID programmes are funded by a targeted rate on business ratepayers within a set area

22.     BID programmes are funded by a targeted rate applied to all business rated properties within a designated area around a town centre or commercial precinct.

23.     Auckland Council supports business associations operating BID programmes by collecting the targeted rates and providing these funds, in their entirety, by way of a BID targeted rate grant to the relevant business association.

24.     This revenue is paid to the business association every quarter to provide a regular and sustainable income stream to implement an agreed work programme.

The BID Policy is the mechanism to ensure accountability for BID targeted rate grants

25.     Auckland Council’s Business Improvement District (BID) Policy (2016) (Kaupapa Here ā-Rohe Whakapiki Pakihi) ensures accountability for BID targeted rate funding and encourages good governance and programme management.

26.     The policy outlines the principles behind the council’s BID programme; creates the process for establishing, expanding, amalgamating and disestablishing a BID programmes; determines rating mechanisms; prescribes operating standards and guidelines; and sets accountability requirements.

The business association sets the BID targeted rate grant amount to deliver its work programme

27.      BID-operating business associations are provided with a rate modelling spreadsheet to help with their budget decision-making. The spreadsheet models any proposed changes to their current BID grant amount and, most importantly, how that influences the BID targeted rate for everyone who will pay it. When considering a change to the BID targeted rate grant amount, the association’s board must take into account what the local business and property owners can afford.

28.     Each BID-operating business association prepares an annual business plan for the following financial year that will deliver programmes based on their strategic priorities and financial parameters.

29.     The cost of implementing that business plan is set out in an annual budget that the association’s board (governing committee) agrees will be recommended for approval by the business association membership.

30.     The AGM provides the forum where members vote to approve the operational budget and, in doing so, set the requisite BID targeted rate grant amount for the following financial year.

Local boards are responsible for recommending the targeted rate grant if a BID complies with the BID Policy

31.     Under the Auckland Council shared governance arrangements, local boards are allocated several decision-making responsibilities in relation to BID programmes. One of these is to annually recommend BID targeted rates to the Governing Body. The local board should recommend the setting of the targeted rate if it is satisfied that the BID is sufficiently complying with the BID Policy.

32.     The Howick Local Board approved a similar recommendation for the BID programmes last year (resolution number HW/2021/66), as did 17 other local boards that have BID programmes operating in their rohe.

The Governing Body sets the targeted rate when it approves the Annual Budget

33.     The recommendation in this report is put into effect with the Governing Body’s approval of the Annual Budget 2022/2023 and its striking (setting) of the targeted rates.

34.     In accordance with the provisions of the Local Government Act 2002 and the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002, the Governing Body is authorised to make the final decisions on what BID programme targeted rates, if any, to set in any particular year or property (in terms of the amount and the geographic area to be rated).

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

35.     BID programmes are operated by independent business associations, and their programmes and services are provided according to their members’ stated priorities. In recognition of their independent status, the BID Policy does not prescribe standards for programme effectiveness. That is a matter for business association members to determine. Staff, therefore, cannot base recommendations on these factors, but only on the policy’s express requirements.

Both Howick Village and Greater East Tāmaki business associations comply with the BID Policy

36.     Staff are satisfied that HVA and GETBA have sufficiently met the requirements of the BID Policy.

37.     Staff require BID-operating business associations to provide to the council the following documents, and stay in touch with their local board at least once a year:

·   Current strategic plan – evidence of achievable medium- to long-term opportunities.

·   Audited accounts – assurance that the BID-operating business association is managing its members’ BID targeted rate funds responsibly.

·   Annual report on the year just completed – evidence that programmes are addressing priority issues that benefit BID targeted ratepayers.

·   Business plan for the coming year – detailed one-year programme, based on the strategic plan, to be resourced and achieved.

·   Indicative budget for the following year – Auckland Council’s Annual Budget requires targeted rates to be identified a year in advance to inform the Annual Budget process which sets all rates.

·   Board Charter – establishes guidelines for effective board governance and positive relationships between the association and its members.

·   Annual Accountability Agreement – certification that these requirements have been met.

·   Programme Agreement – a good faith agreement between each BID-operating business association and the council that sets basic parameters of the council-business association relationship.

·   AGM minutes – the provisional minutes of each business association’s 2021 AGM meetings which contain the resolution, voted on by members, confirming the BID grant amount for the 2022/2023 financial year.

 

38.     In addition, BID-operating business associations are required to inform the council staff of progress with other compliance requirements, including:

·   Incorporated Society registration – a current registration of the business association along with all required documents up to date.

·   Resolving problems or issues, if any – problems or issues that have an impact on the governance or operation of the BID programme.

 

39.     The BID Policy sets an annual compliance deadline of 10 March for the information to be forwarded to the council, as summarised in the table below.

Nothing to record

Nothing to record

 

40.     As both HVA and GETBA have sufficiently complied with the BID Policy, staff advise the local board to recommend to the Governing Body the setting of the targeted rates.

 

Howick Village and Greater East Tamaki Business Association retained their BID targeted rate grant amounts for 2022/2023

41.     As shown in Table 2 below shows:

·    Howick Village Association’s proposed BID targeted rate for 2022/2023 - $179,390. Records show this business association has not increased the sum since 2020.

·    Greater East Tāmaki Business Association’s proposed BID targeted rate for 2022/2023 - $545,000. Records show this business association has not increased the sum since 2020.

 

A regional perspective    

42.     Across Tāmaki Makaurau’s 50 BID-operating business associations, 26 increased their targeted rates between 1.6% to 10% - for 2022/2023, while 24 maintained the fiscal status quo.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

43.     Through targeted rate-funded advocacy and activities, BID-operating business associations promote and often facilitate environmental sustainability programmes.

44.     From running carbon-reducing ‘shop local’ campaigns to promoting online channels and championing waste reduction and recovery programmes, there are many examples of BID programmes leading the local business sector’s response to the climate change emergency.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

45.     Advocacy is a key service provided by business associations and those with BID programme-funded personnel are at an advantage. BID-operating business associations ensure the views and ambitions of their members are provided to elected representatives and council teams, including CCOs, on those policies, plans, programmes and projects that impact them.

46.     The BID-operating business associations work with Auckland Unlimited (AU) on economic development initiatives, events and sustainability programmes.

47.     The BID-operating business associations also work constructively with both Eke Panuku and Auckland Transport on often controversial proposals and projects.

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

Local impacts and local board views

48.     The local board’s views are most frequently expressed by its appointed representative on the board of each BID-operating business association. This liaison board member (or alternates) can attend BID board meetings to ensure there is a direct link between the council and the operation of the BID programme.

49.     Howick and Greater East Tamaki BIDs value their strong and enduring governance-to-governance relationship with the Howick Local Board. The contributions by the local board’s ‘BID representatives’, past and present, have promoted mutual understanding, collaboration and aligned economic outcomes.

Visions, plans aligned

50.     The BID-operating business associations and local board share an interest in the local rohe and are ambitious for its future and its people. They also share goals that include economic prosperity, community identity, placemaking and pride.

51.     HVA and GETBA BID programmes tangibly support the vision and aspirations of the Howick Local Board Plan 2020, best expressed in Outcome 5. A prosperous local economy supporting business growth and opportunity.

Local rohe, local benefit, local funding

52.     Recommending that the Governing Body sets the targeted rates for the Howick Village and Greater East Tāmaki business associations means that these BID programmes will continue to be funded from targeted rates on commercial properties in their respective rohe. They will provide services in accordance with their members’ priorities as stated in their strategic plans.

53.     Howick Local Board is among several local boards which provides additional funding to local business associations, however accountability for any grants is set by funding agreements between the local board and each business association. Those contractual obligations are separate from the requirements of the BID Policy and are not covered in this report.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

54.     Māori make up more than 5.7% of the population living in the Howick Local Board area, compared to 11.5% of Auckland (SOURCE: 2018 CENSUS)Individual business associations may, through operating their BID programme, identify opportunities for niche support or development of any Māori business sector in their rohe.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

55.     There are no financial implications for the local board. Targeted rates for BID-operating business associations are raised directly from business ratepayers in the district and used by the business association for improvements within that rohe. The council’s financial role is to collect the BID targeted rates and pass them directly to the associations every quarter.

56.     The targeted rate is payable by the owners of the business rated properties within the geographic area of the individual BID programmes. 

57.     If the Governing Body agrees with the BID targeted rate grants proposed by the business associations, the cost of grants will be met from the existing operational budget.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

58.     There are no direct financial risks to the local board or the council that could result from this recommendation to endorse the BID targeted rate grants for these business associations.

59.     To sustain public trust and confidence in the council, there needs to be a balance between the independence of the BID-operating business associations and the accountability for monies collected by a public sector organisation.

60.     The rules and obligations of the BID Policy are intended to help minimise the potential for business associations to misuse BID targeted rate grant funds by requiring each BID to plan for their intended use, report on its activities to its members and to have its accounts audited.

61.     The council staff regularly monitor compliance with the BID Policy and this report is part of an active risk management programme to minimise inappropriate use of funds.

62.     Economic disruption created by the flow-on effects of the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to be felt in Auckland’s town centres and business precincts. The BID programme is an internationally proven approach to engage and empower local businesses. The BID programmes in this local board area can, through business resilience and recovery initiatives, help to mitigate some of the economic effects of the pandemic.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

63.     If the local board supports this report, it will recommend to the Governing Body that the BID targeted rates be set as part of the Annual Budget 2022/2023.

64.     After the Annual Budget is approved, the council collects the targeted rate funds and distributes them in quarterly BID grant payments, effective from 1 July 2022, to the Howick Village and Greater East Tāmaki business associations. This enables the BIDs to implement programmes that improve the local business environment and support businesses as they recover from the flow-on effects from the COVID 19 pandemic and help address the climate change emergency through sustainability initiatives.

·   specific local board grant priorities

·   which grant types will operate, the number of grant rounds and opening and closing dates

·   any additional criteria or exclusions that will apply

·   other factors the local board consider to be significant to their decision-making.

8.       Once the local board grants programme 2022/2023 has been adopted, the types of grants, grant rounds, criteria and eligibility with be advertised through an integrated communication and marketing approach which includes utilising the local board channels.

Howick Local Board Grants Programme 2022/2023

The Local Grants Programme aims to provide contestable and discretionary community grants to local

communities.

 

Outcomes sought from the local grants programme

Applicants will need to read the Howick Local Board Plan before submitting an application. This can be viewed online at www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/localboardplans, picked up from the Auckland Council service centre, or ordered from the call centre on 09 301 0101.

The Howick Local grants programme will be targeted towards supporting the following outcomes and priorities as outlined in our local board plan 2020.

People in our communities feel safe, engaged, and connected

·    People actively contribute to their community

·    People are safe with access to services to support their wellbeing

·    Rangatahi /Youth in Howick have a voice, are valued, and contribute

 

Well planned public spaces that support active, healthy, and sustainable lifestyles

·    Sports and recreational opportunities respond to the needs of our communities

 

Heritage, local arts, and cultural diversity are valued

·    Enable people to engage with local history, and share their diverse cultures

·    Support local arts, culture, music and heritage activities and experiences

A prosperous local economy supporting business growth and opportunity

Effective and accessible transport choices

·    Active transport infrastructure enables connection with schools, key community facilities and transport hubs

 

 

Higher Priorities

The Howick Local Board will prioritise applications which:

·    Demonstrate SmokeFree programmes

·    Demonstrate zero waste activities

·    Events or activities that are held in the local board area and can demonstrate the benefit to the local community

·    Have considered other funding sources or there is a contribution from the application to the event or activity (financial or volunteer time).

 

Lower Priorities

The Howick Local Board will also consider applications for other services, projects, events and activities which may be considered a lower priority on a case by case basis.

 The Howick Local Board has identified the following as lower priorities:

·    Fundraising events or activities, unless the activity or event has a wide community benefit beyond its primary purpose as a fundraiser

·    Onegoing operation costs including, wages and salaries, with the exception of fees for professional and specialised services

The Howick Local Board will take into account, if a group has a substantial cash surplus (relative to the amount applied for), unless the surplus has a specific purpose, which means it can’t be used as a contribution to the project.

Exclusions and Ineligibility

In addition to the eligibility criteria outlined the Community Grants Policy, the Howick Local Board will not fund:

·    Applicants who have failed to complete or provide a satisdactory Accountability Report from previous grants

Investment Approach

The Howick Local Board has allocated budgets to support the local grants programme as follows:

a)   Quick Response Grants

•     Minimum amount per grant: $300.00

•     Maximum amount per grant: $10,000.00

b)   Local Grants and Mulit-board Grants

•     Minimum amount per grant: $3,000.00

•     Maximum amount per grant: N/A

Note: Applications requesting more than $10,000.00 need to provide a full and concise budget when applying.

Accountability Measures

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

Learn to Play is a fun way to learn the sport of Ice Hockey. It keeps kids around our community active throughout the year. With ice time and hockey gear being the 2 major costs for kids to play the sport of hockey, successful grant applications help to keep the costs to families around Auckland down.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Sports and recreational opportunities respond to the needs of our communities

 

Our grant application is for funds to help cover ice time costs for our Learn to Play (aged 4-12) at the Botany Paradise Ice Rink. As ice time is our largest operating cost each year, this helps to keep the cost of our sport down for families around Auckland.

Project: Auckland King Tides Initiative Community CoastSnap Beach Monitoring

Location:

Clovelly Road Walkway, Eastern Beach

Summary:

Construct and install CoastSnap devices at public coastal locations that can be monitored by local communities. The process of capturing and providing beach state data (complementing water level data) to the Auckland King Tides Initiative provides an opportunity for communities to learn about the causes and impacts of sea level rise on their coastline. CoastSnap devices provide a focal point for communities, where repeat photos at the same location tracks how the coast is changing over time due to processes such as storms, rising sea levels, human activities and other factors. CoastSnap uses photogrammetry to turns photos into valuable coastal data that is used by coastal scientists to understand and forecast how coastlines might change in the coming decades.

Expertise:

In 2019 community participation was demonstrated by receiving 270 photos of king tide events disseminated via our website and social media platform. Direct participation of approximately 300 students and their parents in learning how to use a photo point to take a photo of a king tide and to upload it to our website was also evidence of community participation.
Website and social media updates and notifications of king tide events, photo galleries, blogs, as well as media stories increased community awareness of sea level rise as an impact of climate change. These communication streams have reached a minimum of 34,554 people via social media in 2019. A wider audience was also reached via media articles and the website.

Focus specific:

Event producer/contractor/3rd party:

Environmental benefits: Additional CoastSnap devices and existing tide gauges are required to validate radar-based data already being collected by the Council. This proposal provides additional devices to validate existing data. Data collected via this proposal is of a lower level of confidence than radar- collected data, but will be at an agreed and acceptable error level (as defined by Auckland Council and NIWA) to still be valuable in validating Council collected data.
Data collected by communities has a valuable purpose in validating Council collected data in order to assess inundation risk from sea level rise as outlined above.

Promotion:

Promotion via Auckland King Tides Initiative website and social media platform, including infographics, photos and other visual material. 
Promotion via media (previous national press coverage includes TV1, TV3, RNZ, The Listener, NZ Geographic,NZ Herald, stuff.co.nz, fairfax local newspapers).
 
Will seek promotion via Auckland Council publications (e.g. OURAUCKLAND), and publications by NIWA, New Zealand Coastal Society). 
 
Our content has been used free of charge by Auckland Council, NIWA, and the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment for their publications in the past.

 

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

Auckland residents become aware of the potential impacts of sea level rise in the next 30-50 years on the wider region and their own local coastal environment.
We create and maintain a CoastSnap and water level (tidal) gauge network (supported by an exisiting website and social media platform) that continues a conversation around what sea level rise might mean for local communities and Auckland as a whole. 2014 saw the creation of a portal to capture king tide event images and associated information relating to sea level rise.
Users of this portal become part of an active network of individuals, communities, businesses and authorities that take actions that allow communities to adapt to sea level rise (e.g. location and nature of future development, erosion protection works, community response to impacts).
Specific measured outcomes for participants would include:
1. Involvement with the programme that is “hands-on”; involving an action component (e.g. photo and/or water level measurement).
2. Greater importance and value of capturing the impacts of king tide events on coastal locations.
3. Talking to others about sea level rise.
4. Getting involved in a citizen science project.
5. Looking after their local part of the coast.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Protect and enhance our unique coastline

 

Auckland Council collects water level data via radar-based tide gauges in order to allow the validation of extreme sea level estimates that are based on modeled data, in order to gain an appreciation of coastal inundation risk across the region under a range of sea level rise scenarios.
These radar-based gauges need to be supplemented by staff gauges on site, to provide a visual comparison to validate the data captured.
This project encourages a community-led approach that captures the required supplementary data via water level (tidal) gauges that also provides a means to engage the public around sea level rise. The proposed CoastSnap device takes this a step further to compliment data collected by tide gauges installed in the vicinity. It does this by building a community database that provides new insights on beach responses to changing weather and wave conditions, extreme storms and changes in sea level. Over time, CoastSnaps will record erosion and recovery cycles, and any long-term changes, helping us understand why some beaches are more dynamic or resilient than others.

Demographics

Māori outcomes:

Māori focus - tikanga (practices), mātauranga (knowledge), reo (language)

Use of mātauranga (knowledge) maori would be valuable in understanding historic sea levels. We have historic background data on sea levels going back to the 1800's, but understanding practices and patterns of use and settlement on the coast by maori in
the past would provide valuable context to the western scientific data that we have. Communities in the coastal locations outlined in the proposal will have this knowledge.

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes- CoastSnap device will be located in public spaces that have vantage points that are accessible to people with disabilities.

Target ethnic groups:

All/everyone

Healthy environment approach:

Promote smoke-free messages, Encourage the reduction of carbon emissions or increase community resilience to the impacts of climate change*

CoastSnap devices will be located in smoke-free public spaces, providing an opportunity to take part in the project in a smoke free environment.
 
Seeing the visual impacts of sea level rise on beach profiles can provide motivation for individual and communities to transition towards a low carbon lifestyle. This project provides this opportunity in a public space, where CoastSnap devices can show how the magnitude and impacts of a king tide will be an average daily tide within our lifetimes. 
 
The project also encourages a community-led approach to capture water level data and beach profile photos that will help agencies understand the coastal inundation risk that the city will face in the next 30 to 50 years.

Identified community outcomes:

 

Increasing the cricket facilities in the area for the Rangatahi to develop their game in a safe and quality facility. Apart from HPCC and 1 or 2 schools the Howick area does not have quality cricket training facilities. As stated earlier, we work closely with the HPCC. The club uses our facilities for trainings and games for their junior club as there is a demand in the area, the game has had great growth and the area facilities have not grown accordingly.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Sports and recreational opportunities respond to the needs of our communities

 

We would like to develop cricket practice facilities at our school. Benefitting the local community by providing a further resource for the Rangatahi of the area. At the moment there are minimal facilities in the area for the youth to develop their cricket skills. We have a healthy working relationship with the Howick Pakuranga Cricket club who are the main providers of facilities in the area. We share facilities when available and will continue this relationship.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

There is a large number of Chinese migrants living in the Howick Ward. As most of the information, community activities and seminars for dementia are disseminated in English, it is difficult for the Chinese to have an in-depth understanding of dementia and to fully participate in the activities. This project is language specific as it will be conducted in Cantonese to people living in East Auckland.
 
Short-term benefits: 
1) Keeping older Chinese in our communities feel safe, engaged, and connected through the same language speaking activities; 
2) Encouraging older Chinese’s participation by the convenient location that is close to residential areas and easily accessible and the activities are free; 
3) Appropriate and age-friendly distribution of information through community talks and volunteer’s support
 
Medium-term benefits: 
1) Enhancing the social connection and promoting mutual support in our communities through providing community education talks and brain health activities;
2) Providing brain health activities to prevent dementia and social isolation so as to keep older people healthy, independent and active
3) Encouraging intergenerational integration by empowering and supporting people who are caring for the older people with dementia (such as family members, young volunteers) 
 
Long-term: Reducing the stigma on people living with dementia

Project: Hauora/Wellbeing Space for New Entrants

Location:

28 Sandspit Road, Cockle Bay, Auckland

Summary:

We are looking to create a new wahi tamariki (children's space) that would support the hauora of our younger students.  The space we have in mind is located in front of our new entrant classrooms and is currently devoid of character or decoration (see later photo attachments).  Improvements would include bench seating, a water fountain/bottle filler, and the conversion of an existing retained garden into a sensory māra kai or vegetable garden. The garden would also include a section with flowers and a bird bath. It would be planted and tended by our youngest students. We envisage a child-centric, calm and uplifting space and plan to invite senior students to contribute artwork that supports our māra kai and wellbeing theme.

Expertise:

As part of our schoolwide hauora planning, staff recently undertook professional development in "Pause Breathe Smile" training to assist with integrating mindfulness into our classrooms and managing the increased levels of stress and anxiety in the students.  The school's staff and parents would provide the labour to establish the garden, while the children would be taught how to plant and care for the garden.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

We are seeing unprecedented levels of need for wellbeing support from our students, staff and our wider school community.  Physical distancing and ventilation requirements necessitated by the pandemic have highlighted an urgent requirement for more outdoor kōrero areas. The past two years have been very demanding on our staff and students and our youngest children have needed to become independent quickly to cope with physical distancing, staff wearing masks all day, constant cleaning of high touch areas and a myriad of other introduced routines. Home life throughout the pandemic has also not been easy for many.  Parents have lost jobs and businesses through mandates, lockdowns and border closures, and everyone around the children has been on edge with their own concerns and worries.  At Cockle Bay School we have been implementing a number of initiatives to counter some of the anxiety and stress that children have been feeling and we believe that this project would lift the morale of everyone involved, introduce our younger students to sustainable living and, most importantly, give them a calm, connected space that they can take pride in and call their own.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     People are safe with access to services to support their wellbeing

 

Cockle Bay School is currently noting unprecedented levels of need for wellbeing support from our students, staff and our wider school community.  The physical distancing restrictions and ventilation requirements necessitated by the pandemic have highlighted an urgent requirement for more outdoor kōrero areas where students can gather in small groups or have one-on-one support.
 
We believe that wellbeing can be "taught" and "caught".  There is evidence that whole school promotion on wellbeing (flourishing) and resilience leads to higher levels of personal wellbeing and that aspects of wellbeing and resilience can be taught and learned. In our wellbeing responsiveness planning we have identified the need for more hauora spaces throughout the school where  we can incorporate the four dimensions of hauora: taha tinana (physical well-being – health), taha hinengaro (mental and emotional well-being – self-confidence), taha whanau (social well-being – self-esteem) and taha wairua (spiritual well-being – personal beliefs).

 

Demographics

Māori outcomes:

Māori focus - tikanga (practices), mātauranga (knowledge), reo (language)

'He māra kai’ - the food garden - where students will follow the process of planting, tending, then cultivation of the vegetables and flowers.  Each vegetable or flower would have its own plant marker with its name in both English and te reo.
The bird bath we would like to purchase features a double koru. The koru is symbolic of peace, tranquility, positive change and awakening - perfect for our mindfulness theme. The 'He māra kai’ theme will be carried through the garden by artwork provided by our senior students.

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes- Our school is inclusive and is fully equipped for people with a variety of disabilities.  Our garden will be wheelchair accessible and, as part of its wellbeing theme, will also be sensory - appealing to children with autism spectrum disorder and the visually and hearing impaired.  It has been proven that children with disabilities who participate in gardening show improvement in their non-verbal communication skills and situational awareness, which helps them better interact with peers, allowing them the opportunity to make connections and form relationships.

Healthy environment approach:

Promote smoke-free messages, Include waste minimisation (zero waste) messages, Healthy options for food and drink, including water as the first choice, Encouraging active lifestyles including movement or fitness programmes, Encourage the reduction of carbon emissions or increase community resilience to the impacts of climate change*

Smoke Free -  the Cockle Bay School site is Smoke and Vape free and signage is present all around the school site.
Zero Waste - all garden waste will support our worm farm located nearby.  Cockle Bay School is an Enviro school.
Healthy options for food and drink - this would be the first modern drink fountain with a bottle filler on the school site and the children would love it.
Encouraging active lifestyles - gardening is an immersive exercise that can brings connection between mind, body and spirit.
Increase community resilience to climate change - teaching young children sustainability through growing their own food.

If we are unable to fully fund the project plan we would prioritise the seating arrangements as these are central to our hauora plan for increasing mindfulness areas around the school for children who need some quiet time or a calm down space, where they can regulate their emotions.  If we had to try to make up the difference in funding we would attempt fundraisers, although we are reluctant to ask families for money, knowing that many of our parents have lost jobs or have struggling businesses.

Project: STARS Pakuranga

Location:

Te Tuhi Arts Centre, 13 Reeves Rd, Pakuranga, Auckland

Summary:

STARS Pakuranga is a therapeutic and creative dance / movement programme designed to support the development of young people on the Autism Spectrum, and with related disorders including Global Developmental Delays, ADHD, Anxiety, and Dyspraxia. The goal is to support tangata whaiora (service users), their parent(s) or carers to help participants reach their goals and translate the benefits into their daily lives. The key objectives are to celebrate and empower tamariki with disabilities, developing their social and communication skills, emotional intelligence and wellbeing, coordination and motor function, as well as increasing their participation at school and the community. Sessions are led by a team of three facilitators, and run weekly for eight weeks with six children each term.

Expertise:

DTNZ has been running clinical dance movement therapy groups since our inception in 2010. Our therapy team is made up of qualified and highly experienced Dance Movement and Arts therapists who have been rigorously trained either in Aotearoa New Zealand, or through reputable international organisations. DTNZ provides regular supervision to our therapists who facilitate clinical groups including STARS Pakuranga for both client and therapist safety, and to ensure a sustainable approach to every programme is maintained. We have a comprehensive Health & Safety Policy and are experienced at facilitating groups online when we can't come together in person.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

The key community benefit of our programme, especially during this difficult time, is ensuring that youth with disabilities feel connected and their whānau feel adequately supported by the community. In the past year we had 131 attendances to our STARS Pakuranga programme, which is reflective of a dip in participants due to online delivery over the extended lockdown between August and December, 2021. Looking ahead, we anticipate these numbers to increase to over 180 attendances based on previous years and the fact we currently have a fully subscribed group of six clients.
 
To enrich the community, it's vital that participants feel confident in exercising the skills learnt in our groups outside of the programme with their whānau, with peers, at school, and in other community settings. We achieve this by providing wraparound support, regularly checking in with parents, holding review meetings, and requesting feedback every six months. STARS allows young people who often cannot participate in mainstream after-school activities because of additional behavioural or sensory needs, to develop social connections with others through the meaningful shared experience of dance and movement. This will serve to bring positive energy and a renewed sense of vibrancy to the community as a whole.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     People are safe with access to services to support their wellbeing

 

STARS Pakuranga provides accessible and fun wellbeing support services to youth with intellectual and/or physical disabilities in the Howick Local Board area. This programme runs weekly on Wednesdays during school term from 3.45 - 4.45pm at the Te Tuhi Arts Centre, which is an accessible location for our tangata whaiora. Led by experienced facilitators, Brittany Kohler & Tanvi Rodrigues, this group provides a safe space for tamariki to develop their social and communication skills, coordination and motor function, emotional intelligence and compassion, but most importantly, their self-confidence. We've built a sense of community here, with participants coming back each term to see their friends and the facilitators. Even when we've been unable to come together in person due to Covid-19 related disturbances, we've swiftly moved sessions online to Zoom. DTNZ realises the importance of stability, routine and social connection, especially for young people on the spectrum. Trust-based relationships are important here, so we can better understand the needs and goals of each client, providing individual support wherever needed. Therapists are also in regular contact with whānau to see how the benefits of this group are translating into their everyday lives.
