Water Services Entities Bill

File No.: CP2022/09541

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To provide feedback for inclusion in Auckland Council’s feedback on the Water Services Entities Bill.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

1.   The Water Services Entities Bill was introduced to Parliament on 2 June and referred to the Finance and Expenditure Select Committee on 9 June. Submissions close 22 July.

2.   The introduction of the Bill follows release of the exposure draft in December 2021 to support the work of the Representation, Governance and Accountability Working Group. The Government has responded to recommendations of this Working Group and this response is reflected in the Bill introduced on 2 June.

3.   The Bill establishes the Northern Water Services Entity that includes Auckland Council, Far North District Council, Kaipara District Council, and Whangārei District Council.

4.   There are several changes in the final Bill which include provisions for:

·    the allocation of population-based shares to territorial authority owners – however these do not come with decision-making rights and cannot be sold so do not provide the typical ownership that shareholding normally brings

·    a divestment proposal requiring unanimous support from territorial authority owners to proceed to a public poll

·    the Water Services Entity (WSE) to fund the work of the Regional Representatives Group (RRG), regional advisory panels, territorial authority owners and mana whenua

·    the introduction of regional advisory panels to the RRG

·    a single constitution that applies to the RRG, the regional advisory panels and the WSE board

·    the Statement of Strategic and Performance Expectations to include how the WSE will give effect to Te Mana o Te Wai

·    the strategic elements of the Statement of Intent to be approved by the RRG

·    an individual iwi or hapū or group of iwi or hapū providing Te Mana o Te Wai statements that may relate to one or more freshwater bodies

·    the Minister to consult with the RRG and Taumata Arowai in the preparation of a Government policy statement

·    each local government organisation to provide the Department of Internal Affairs with information about intended decisions during transition that relate to the provision of water services

·    review of governance and accountability arrangements after five years and legislation after 10 years.

5.   The Water Services Entities Bill can be found here.

6.   Local board input into Auckland Council’s submission is being sought. Staff have agreed to receive feedback from the Waitematā Local Board by 12 July 2022 for feedback to be considered in the council’s submission, or 19 July 2022 for feedback to be appended. A draft submission is being prepared by staff and will be shared with local boards on 12 July 2022. The final submission is due by 22 July 2022.

7.   Further context and information is included in Attachment A to the agenda report, a memo provided to the mayor, councillors, and local board members on 10 June 2022 regarding the Water Services Entities Bill.

Local board feedback on the strategic direction of Auckland's Future Development Strategy

File No.: CP2022/09719

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek local board feedback on the strategic approach to the Future Development Strategy (FDS).

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The purpose of the FDS is to provide the basis for integrated, strategic and long-term planning. It should assist with the integration of land use and infrastructure planning and funding decisions and set out how Tāmaki Makaurau will:

·    achieve outcomes across the four well-beings

·    achieve a well-functioning urban environment

·    provide sufficient development capacity to meet housing and business land demand over the short, medium, and long-term

·    coordinate critical development infrastructure and additional infrastructure required and explain how this integrates planning decisions with infrastructure and funding decisions.

3.       The updated FDS will replace the existing Development Strategy in the Auckland Plan 2050 and will incorporate the new requirements of the National Policy Statement on Urban Development (NPS UD). New information on environmental and social changes such as responses to climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic will also be included.

4.       During the early development of the FDS, topics and issues will be researched at a regional scale. As the FDS work develops and becomes more detailed, local board specific material will be available and workshopped with local boards. This is planned for Quarter1 and Quarter 2 2023.

5.       Over the first half of 2022 seven ‘big issues’ facing Auckland were discussed at series of Planning Committee workshops. These issues were: hapū and iwi values and aspirations for urban development; climate change, emissions reduction and urban form; inundation and natural hazards; intensification – dispersed or focused; infrastructure; greenfields and future urban areas; and business and employment.

6.       Local board feedback is sought on this direction, prior to seeking endorsement from the Planning Committee in August and/or September 2022. If endorsed, the staff will use the strategic direction as a basis for developing the draft FDS over the second half of 2022.

7.       An updated FDS is needed in time to inform the Long-term Plan 2024-2034 (LTP). To provide strategic direction that will usefully feed into the LTP process the FDS will need to be completed by mid-2023.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Waitematā Local Board:

a)      provide feedback on the strategic direction for the Future Development Strategy.

 

Horopaki

Context

What is the Future Development Strategy?

8.       The purpose of the FDS is to provide the basis for integrated, strategic and long-term planning. It sets out how, where and when Tāmaki Makaurau is expected to grow over the next 30 years and outlines where and when investment in planning and infrastructure will be made. The updated FDS will replace the existing Development Strategy in the Auckland Plan 2050. It sets out how Tāmaki Makaurau will:

·   achieve outcomes across the four well-beings

·   achieve a well-functioning urban environment

·   provide sufficient development capacity to meet housing and business land demand over the short, medium, and long-term

·   coordinate critical development infrastructure and additional infrastructure required and explain how this integrates planning decisions with infrastructure and funding decisions.

9.       The FDS will show how the direction and outcomes in the Auckland Plan 2050 will be achieved spatially and it will incorporate a clear statement of hapū and iwi values and aspirations for urban development.

10.     It will identify the existing and future location, timing and sequencing of growth and infrastructure provision. It will also identify constraints on development.

11.     Sequencing of development areas within the existing urban areas and future urban areas will be assessed as part of this update.

Why is it being updated now?

12.     There have been many changes since the Development Strategy was adopted as part of the Auckland Plan 2050, nearly four years ago, including central government initiatives under the Urban Growth Agenda and new national policy statements such as the NPS UD. In addition, council has led strategy and policy work focused on environmental and social challenges, including responses to climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic. The growth model is also being reviewed and updated to support the spatial evidence for the FDS.

13.     This changing context, but specifically the requirements of the NPS UD, means Tāmaki Makaurau’s long-term spatial plan requires updating. The update will consider the detailed NPS UD changes to the Auckland Unitary Plan, such as intensification around train and bus rapid transit stops, however the purpose is different as it has a long-term (30 year) strategic focus.

14.     At its 30 November 2021 meeting, the Planning Committee approved the development of an update to the FDS and endorsed the high-level work programme (committee resolution PLA/2021/137).

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

Strategic direction on the ‘big issues’

15.     Over the first half of 2022 seven ‘big issues’ facing Auckland were discussed at series of Planning Committee workshops. The Future Development Strategy will need to address these issues (set out below).

16.     Local board feedback is sought on this direction, prior to seeking endorsement from the Planning Committee in August and/or September 2022. If endorsed, the staff will use the strategic direction as a basis for developing the draft FDS over the second half of 2022.


 

Hapū and iwi values and aspirations for urban development

17.     The NPS UD directs that the FDS is informed by ‘Māori, and in particular tangata whenua, values and aspirations for urban development’. These values could provide a strong framework for taking a longer term, more sustainable approach to development in Auckland.

18.     Strategic direction:

·   hapū and iwi values and aspirations are a key aspect to the FDS and should be an overarching theme throughout, rather than a separate section or workstream

·   a thorough engagement approach is critical to understanding directly from hapū and iwi what their values and aspirations for urban development are

·   mataawaka and relevant Māori organisations should be included in the engagement.

 

Climate change, emissions reduction and urban form

19.     An increased focus on climate change is a key aspect of updating the FDS. The council has committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50 per cent by 2030 and achieving net zero emissions by 2050. Auckland needs to prepare for the impacts of climate change and plan for a potential 3.5 degree temperature increase. Urban form plays a major role in our ability to reduce emissions, as well as our exposure to natural hazards (see below).

20.     Strategic direction:

·   climate change related outcomes are non-negotiable, and every decision needs to consider climate change implications

·   achieving climate change related outcomes should be an overarching theme throughout the FDS.

 

Inundation and natural hazards

21.     There are areas of Auckland that are, and with the impacts of climate change (discussed above), increasingly will be, exposed to natural hazards such as inundation, flooding and erosion.

22.     Strategic direction:

·   take a strong approach to development in hazardous areas and provide clear public messages about risks and liability.

 

Intensification – dispersed or focused

23.     Recent government direction relating to intensification under the NPS UD (around centres and rapid transit stations) and the Medium Density Residential Standards (MDRS) impact the council’s ability to influence where intensification could or should occur.

24.     Intensification that is dispersed (what MDRS enables) is likely to result in low(er) levels of intensification across most of the urban area. This will impact on the ability to provide services over time, for example, public transport.

25.     Focused intensification would direct growth to specific areas or locations, for example, around centres, areas with good public transport access or near areas of high employment.

26.     A combination of these two approaches would allow intensification across much of Auckland but would also allow greater intensification in specific areas. This approach may undermine the level of intensification in places that are best suited, as growth would also be happening in many other places.

27.     Strategic direction:

·   work within the legal parameters, use the levers we still have available to focus intensification

·   quality aspects are increasingly important with intensification, including the value of greenspace.

 

Infrastructure

28.     Funding and financing all the infrastructure needed in Auckland is a significant challenge. The council cannot provide infrastructure everywhere at the same time and reconsideration is needed of where funding will be focused / provided, and who funds what aspects and to what extent.

29.     Strategic direction:

·   strong, clear signals are needed that the council will use infrastructure as a lever to support or not support development

·   the timing and sequencing of development in strategic plans must be followed.

 

Greenfields and future urban areas

30.     The current Development Strategy (and the Auckland Unitary Plan) provide for 15,000ha of greenfields / future urban land, sequenced for development over a 30-year period. In the first decade (2017-2027) 32% of that land was live-zoned and more future urban land is being considered for live-zoning through private plan changes.

31.     Live-zoning is happening much faster and in a haphazard way, creating major infrastructure issues. Additionally, some of this future urban land will, in future, be exposed to greater flooding risk and other natural hazards.

32.     Strategic direction:

·   reconsider and possibly pull back some Future Urban zone areas, particularly:

o areas at risk of flooding and natural hazards

o other areas given the direction on emissions reduction

·   the FDS should give strong signals regarding non-live zoned Future Urban zone land e.g., in terms of sequencing of development and infrastructure provision.

 

Business and employment

33.     Business operations and future needs are changing, for example, the impacts of Covid and working from home, increases in online retail, the needs for large footprint businesses and the role that local centres may play in future.

34.     Auckland Council’s data on business land, needs and trends needs updating and work is underway to address this.

35.     Strategic direction:

·   business land, operations and future needs is an important aspect of the FDS and further research is supported, particularly in relation to the demand for industrial space, robotic warehousing, the weightless economy and the impacts of covid

·   access to business and employment is a critical issue, both in terms reducing the need to travel through proximity to residential areas, and accessibility by public transport and active modes

·   the importance of access to and provision of quality employment opportunities for Māori and Māori businesses.

 

Work programme – timeframes, key milestones

36.     The high-level milestones of the FDS are set out below. The FDS will be completed by mid-2023 to provide clear strategic direction to the 2024 LTP, as directed by the NPS UD.

37.     Research, stakeholder engagement and development of the draft FDS will be on-going in 2022. Engagement with Tāmaki Makaurau Māori and key stakeholders is planned throughout 2022 and the first half of 2023. Public consultation is expected in the first half of 2023.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

41.     There is an increasing national focus on climate change through legislation[1] and through initiatives such as declaration of climate emergencies[2] and the report of the Climate Change Commission (June 2021). The council adopted Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan in 2020. The plan provides a long-term approach to climate action, with a target to halve regional emissions by 2030 and transition to net zero emissions by 2050. The built environment is one of the priority areas within the plan and the associated action areas focus on reducing emissions and adapting to the impacts of climate change.

42.     The government’s Emissions Reduction Plan (May 2022) and the council’s Transport Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP) being developed are recent plans seeking to reduce emissions. The TERP will provide a pathway for achieving a modelled 64 per cent reduction in transport emissions by 2030 in Auckland. Staff are working to align land use aspects of the TERP and the FDS to 2030, while acknowledging that land use and planning decisions typically see climate impacts over the longer-term. This means that decisions need to be made now to realise the benefits as soon as possible.

43.     Land use and planning decisions, particularly those around urban form, development and infrastructure, are fundamental to climate action. The impacts of different growth scenarios on climate change mitigation and adaptation are essential to the development of the FDS. These decisions influence and lock in our emissions trajectory and our ability to deal with the risks and impacts of a changing climate for decades to come.

44.     For example, in relation to transport emissions, more expansive urban forms generally lead to longer travel distances. Longer trip lengths typically result in higher transport emissions and less propensity for mode shift. Strategic land use decisions consider climate change risks and impacts such as the effects of coastal inundation and sea level rise.

45.     The approach taken in the FDS and the council’s approach to implementation has the potential for significant long-term implications. These aspects will be further researched and developed over the course of the project.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

46.     The FDS provides Auckland-wide alignment on growth and development approaches and influences the council strategies, programmes of work and investment decisions. Involvement, information and support from staff across the council group is a critical aspect needed to achieve alignment.

47.     A range of relevant staff from across the organisation, including the Council-Controlled Organisations, are involved in the project’s topic areas or workstreams.

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

Local impacts and local board views

48.     The FDS is the long-term strategic spatial plan for Tāmaki Makaurau. The FDS provides information on how, when and where growth is anticipated. This is a topic which is of relevance to local boards as growth and development can have significant impacts at a local board level and informs local board plans.

49.     This report seeks local board views on the strategic approach to the Future Development Strategy prior to agreement being sought from the Planning Committee.

50.     As the FDS work develops and becomes more detailed, local board specific material will be available and will be workshopped with local boards. This is planned for Quarter 1 and Quarter 2 2023.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

51.     The purpose of the FDS is to provide the basis for integrated, strategic and long-term planning. It will reflect the direction and outcomes in the Auckland Plan 2050 spatially. The updated FDS will include a clear statement of hapū and iwi values and aspirations for urban development based on engagement with relevant hapū and iwi (as required by the NPS UD).

52.     Auckland Council has committed to achieving Māori outcomes through Kia Ora Tāmaki Makaurau, influenced by the Māori Plan and Issues of Significance, and Auckland Plan 2050. These documents provide guidance in understanding the priority areas for Tāmaki Makaurau Māori and a number of these priority areas are relevant to the development and implementation of the FDS, for example:

·   involve Māori early in the decision-making process

·   Māori housing aspirations

·   protection of existing natural resources

·   allowing for kaitiakitanga

·   benefits to Māori, for example, housing, economic opportunities, and improved access

·   impacts of climate change, for example, on marae, whānau, and sites of significance

·   opportunities to showcase Māori identity.

53.     The priority areas already identified, along with feedback from previous engagement will be incorporated in the development of the FDS. This requires a review of past Māori engagement and provides a starting point for engaging with Māori, in a way that supports their capacity to genuinely participate in the development of the FDS.

54.     Staff have developed a Māori engagement plan and are in the beginning phases of engaging with Māori across Tāmaki Makaurau.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

55.     To support updates to the Auckland Plan (incorporating the FDS) by mid-2023, budget for additional consultancy and engagement costs to begin work in the current financial year will be re-prioritised from other work programmes that have been deferred or delayed.

56.     Remaining costs which largely fall in FY23, including engagement and consultation aspects of the programme, are provided for in the 22/23 Annual Budget (subject to approval).

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

57.     The council faces significant risks (achieving desired development outcomes, financial and reputational) in the absence of a clear, cohesive and strategic approach responding to the FDS requirements of the NPS UD and LGACA. The development of an FDS seeks to address those risks.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

58.     Workshops are planned for the first half of 2023, when information specific to each local board will be available.

Urgent decision to approve Waitematā Local Board submission on the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment's proposed Building Code update 2022 - Transition period for the energy efficiency of housing

File No.: CP2022/09534

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To receive the local board feedback made under Urgent Decision on the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s proposed Building Code update 2022 – transition period for the energy efficiency of housing.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is consulting on a proposed amendment to the transition period for the energy efficiency of housing contained in Acceptable Solution H1/AS1 and Verification Method H1/VM1.

3.       In November 2021, following public consultation, MBIE implemented updates to the acceptable solutions and verification methods for H1 Energy Efficiency to make new residential buildings warmer, drier and healthier. Changes included increasing insulation requirements in residential properties to reduce energy required for heating.

4.       Since November 2021, MBIE has received concerns about the feasibility of implementing the changes required within the one-year transition period, due to changing circumstances in the building and construction sector. This has prompted MBIE to consider a 6-month extension to the transition period, from 2 November 2022 to 1 May 2023. This would mean the previous Acceptable Solution H1/AS1 and Verification method H1/VM1 Fourth Edition Amendment 4 documents could be used to demonstrate compliance with the Building Code until then.

5.       The consultation document can be accessed here: https://www.mbie.govt.nz/dmsdocument/21213-consultation-document-building-code-update-2022-transition-period-for-the-energy-efficiency-of-housing

6.       The consultation opened on 30 May 2022, and feedback was due by 5pm on Monday 13 June 2022. As the previous local board meeting was held on 17 May 2022, and the next was not scheduled until 21 June 2022, there was no opportunity to consider this at a business meeting. Accordingly, the urgent decision process was utilised.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Waitematā Local Board:

a)      receive the urgent decision to approve local board feedback on the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s proposed Building Code update 2022 – transition period for the energy efficiency of housing.
