Local board feedback on Community Bike Hubs - Te Poka Pū Paihikara i tēnei Hapori

File No.: CP2022/13300

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek formal views from the local board on the Community Bike Hubs - Te Poka Pū Paihikara i tēnei Hapori project.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       Community Bike Hubs is a project to accelerate Auckland Transport’s commitment to providing better access to bikes through the establishment of Community Bike Hubs.

3.       The project is funded through Auckland Council’s Ngā Tiriti Ngangahau - The Vibrant Streets (formerly Regional Streets for People) programme.

4.       In the new Community Bike Hub model, Auckland Transport owns the Bike Hubs and takes responsibility for set-up costs while the community runs and operates the Bike Hubs.

5.       This report is seeking views from the local board on:

·    what is the local board’s interest and preferred level of engagement in Community Bike Hubs?

·    does the local board support the Community Bike Hub approach?

·    are there any specific Bike Hub sites in addition to the ones proposed in Attachment A that the local board wants investigated?

·    does the local board have any community groups or individuals in particular they would like Auckland Transport to be engaging as part of this project?

6.       Auckland Transport will review the formal feedback from local boards. Auckland Transport will then evaluate and confirm Community Bike Hub Operators and progress landowner approvals. 

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendations

That the Waiheke Local Board:

a)      provide their formal views on the Community Bike Hubs project

b)      provide their preferred level of engagement in the Community Bike Hubs project

c)      provide any additional sites for consideration for Community Bike Hubs

d)      provide any community groups or individuals for Auckland Transport to engage with on Community Bike Hubs.

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       The Community Bike Hubs - Te Poka Pū Paihikara i tēnei Hapori project is developing a new model of Bike Hubs that are owned by Auckland Transport and operated by the community.

8.       The project seeks to promote the successes of community Bike Hubs by funding the establishment and ongoing operation of Bike Hubs while empowering local communities to run and operate the Bike Hub.

9.       Bike Hubs, Bike Kitchens, Bike Spaces and Bike Boxes have been successful community initiatives in Auckland that improve access to bikes by fixing up and redistributing bikes as well as providing events, activations, information and education. These community initiatives are variously supported by Auckland Transport, other Council-Controlled Organisations (CCO), local boards, other agencies and commercial partners and have been shown to be highly successful at the different scales they target.

10.     Bike Hubs were identified as the operating model best suited to growth, with strong organisational accountability, consistent hours, wide offerings and deep roots into the community.

11.     The Community Bike Hubs project has identified the following locations as being a good fit for the new model:

·    Papakura

·    Grey Lynn

·    Pakuranga

·    Manukau

·    Northcote

·    Epsom

·    Onehunga

·    Devonport

12.     The project also will scale up existing bike spaces in Mt Roskill and Waiheke into full Bike Hubs.

13.     Despite their success and their intention to grow, key barriers to growth have been identified for Bike Hubs such as set-up costs and uncertainty of ongoing funding. Auckland Transport’s Sustainable Mobility team has been leading a programme of work to address these barriers and enable growth of the Bike Hub network.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

14.     The new Community Bike Hub model is an Auckland Transport-owned, community-run model in which Auckland Transport takes ownership of landowner permissions, consenting, set-up costs and all ongoing site requirements. Auckland Transport then partners with and initially funds community organisations to operate these Bike Hubs, employing locals and developing extensive volunteer networks.

15.     Bike Hubs have historically been housed in two or three shipping containers and this is the model most appropriate to most locations. However, in some locations, CCO or other agency property, such as a town centre storefront or council facility, exists that could be used for a Bike Hub.

16.     Auckland Transport will fully fund these Community Bike Hubs in their first year and will aim in subsequent years to reduce funding to a sustainable level while adding other funding sources such as koha, donated bike sales, other grants or funders and commercial partnerships. Further, Auckland Transport will fully support these Bike Hubs and other existing spaces with dedicated resources, guidance and advice, connections to other Bike Hubs and the wider network, training and upskilling and more.

17.     This initiative supports Auckland Council’s strategic goals related to development of alternative modes of transport, especially cycling and its climate change goals.  Most local  board plans across the region prioritise responses to climate change, including the promotion of alternatives to travelling by car. 

18.     Auckland Transport recommends that local boards support this initiative. Auckland Transport is seeking feedback and more information on:

i.    Interest – Does the local board support the Community Bike Hub project?

ii.    Engagement level - Does the board wish to engage in this project. If so, would it like to:

A.   Collaborate: fund or provide resources and participate as a partner with Auckland Transport (now or in the future)

B.   Consult: engage actively, express its views and work with Auckland Transport

C.  Be Informed: Auckland Transport will keep the local board informed about the project’s progress.

iii.   Site selection – Are there Bike Hub sites beyond those proposed in Attachment A that the local board thinks would be worth investigating? Community members have helped identify possible locations in each local board area. This report is seeking local boards to provide specific sites they think would be especially appropriate or inappropriate for this project.

iv.  Community groups –  Are there any community groups or individiuals in particular the local board recommends Auckland Transport engage as part of this project?

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

19.     Auckland Transport engages closely with the council on developing strategy, actions and measures to support the outcomes sought by the Auckland Plan 2050, Auckland’s Climate Action Plan and the council’s priorities.

20.     Auckland Transport’s core role is in providing attractive alternatives to private vehicle travel, reducing the carbon footprint of its own operations and, to the extent feasible, that of the contracted public transport network.

21.     The primary climate change benefit of this plan is that Bike Hubs encourage more people to cycle, reducing the number of car journeys and therefore carbon emissions.

22.     The Community Bike Hubs project contributes to Te-Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan as the hubs enable reduced emissions.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

23.     This project is engaging with Community Facilties, Parks Sports and Recreation, Eke Panuku and local boards in order to identify options for possible locations.

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

Local impacts and local board views

24.     This report is seeking formal feedback from impacted local boards.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

25.     Auckland Transport is committed to meeting its responsibilities under Te Tiriti o Waitangi and its broader legal obligations in being more responsible or effective to Māori.

26.     Auckland Transport’s Maori Responsiveness Plan outlines the commitment to 19 mana whenua tribes in delivering effective and well-designed transport policy and solutions for Auckland. We also recognise mataawaka and their representative bodies and our desire to foster a relationship with them. This plan is available on the Auckland Transport website - https://at.govt.nz/about-us/transport-plans-strategies/maori-responsiveness-plan/#about

27.     The Community Bike Hubs project has te ao Māori woven throughout. The designs and marketing draw from Māori artists and designs, and the Bike Hub Operating Model explicitly calls out engaging with cultural groups and individuals.

28.     There is opportunity for mana whenua to operate and be involved with these Bike Hubs.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

29.     Auckland Transport is fully funding the Bike Hubs for the first year of operation, and looking to slowly step down Auckland Transport funding to around 40 per cent of operating expenses in the long term. Auckland Transport expects the shortfall to be made up from sale of bikes, koha, other grants or funders and commercial partnerships.

30.     This decision has no financial implications for Waiheke Local Board at this time as Auckland Transport is funding the bike hub for the first year. If the local board wishes to contribute financially in future the implications will be reported then.

31.     Should the local board wish to contribute funding in the future, the project team would welcome a discussion on the matter. The outcome of that discussion would need to be recorded in a decision report, and that report would include detailed information about financial implications. 

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

32.     The proposed decision to proceed with the Community Bike Hub project does not put the Waiheke Local Board at financial or legal risk.  The decision authorises feedback to an Auckland Transport process and that organisation carries the decision-making risk.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

33.     Auckland Transport will review the formal feedback from local boards. Auckland Transport will then evaluate and confirm community community bike hub operators.

34.     An estimate timeline of actions is provided in Table One below.

7.       The Auckland Council Community Grants Policy supports each local board to adopt a grants programme.

8.       The local board grants programme sets out:

·    local board priorities

·    lower priorities for funding

·    exclusions

·    grant types, the number of grant rounds and when these will open and close

·    any additional accountability requirements

9.       The community grant programmes have been extensively advertised through the council grants webpage, local board webpages, local board e-newsletters, Facebook pages, council publications, radio, and community networks.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

10.     The aim of the local board grant programme is to deliver projects and activities which align with the outcomes identified in the local board plan. All applications have been assessed utilising the Community Grants Policy and the local board grant programme criteria.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

11.     The local board grants programme aims to respond to Auckland Council’s commitment to address climate change by providing grants to individuals and groups with projects that support community climate change action. Local board grants can contribute to climate action through support of projects that address food production and food waste, support alternative transport methods, support community energy efficiency education and behaviour change, build community resilience, and support tree planting.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

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

Local impacts and local board views

14.     Local boards are responsible for the decision-making and allocation of local board community grants. The Waiheke Local Board is required to fund, part-fund or decline these grant applications against the local board priorities identified in the local board grant programme

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

21.     Updates on the Joint CCO Engagement Plan between the local board and Auckland Council’s substantive Council-Controlled Organisations does not have a direct impact on climate, however the projects it refers to will.

22.     Each CCO must work within Te Taruke-a-Tawhiri: Auckland's Climate Action Framework and information on climate impacts will be provided to local boards on a project or programme basis.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

23.     Receiving the Quarter Four updates for the CCO Engagement Plan addresses key elements of recommendations made by the CCO Review, including ensuring the communication of clear, up to date information from CCOs to local boards on projects in their area.

24.     These plans will be shared with the integration teams that implement local board work programmes and will give council staff greater ongoing visibility of CCO work programmes.

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

Local impacts and local board views

25.     Local board engagement plans enable local boards to signal to CCOs those projects that are of greatest interest to the local board, and to ensure that engagement between the local board and the four CCOs is focussed on those priority areas.

26.     Joint CCO engagement plans also give local boards the opportunity to communicate to CCOs which projects they expect to be of most interest to their communities.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

27.     Receiving the Quarter Four updates for the Joint CCO Engagement Plan may have a positive impact on local engagement with mana whenua and mataawaka.

28.     While both CCOs and local boards have engagement programmes with Māori, the engagement plan will allow a more cohesive and coordinated approach to engagement, with more advance planning of how different parts of the community will be involved.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

29.     Receiving the Quarter Four updates for the CCO Engagement Plan between the local board and Auckland Council’s substantive Council-Controlled Organisations does not have financial impacts for local boards.  

30.     Any financial implications or opportunities will be provided to local boards on a project or programme basis. 

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

31.     It is likely that there will be changes made to work programme items in the engagement plan during the year, or to the level of engagement that the board or the community will have. This risk is mitigated by ensuring that the document states clearly that it is subject to change, contains a table recording changes made since it was signed, and will be re-published on the local board agenda quarterly, to ensure public transparency. 

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

32.     The local board will receive the next quarterly update for Quarter One in late 2022.

2022 local government elections - meetings and decision-making until new local board members make their declarations

File No.: CP2022/12770

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To provide for appropriate arrangements for decision-making between the final local board meeting of the current electoral term and the inaugural meeting of the new local board.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The last meeting of the Waiheke Local Board in this current term is scheduled for 28 September 2022. Between that meeting and the first meeting of the local board in the new term, decisions may be needed from the local board. As for each of the previous terms, temporary arrangements for making these decisions need to be confirmed.

3.       The term of office of the current local board members ends the day following the official declaration of election results. Following the declaration, which is expected to be Friday 14 October 2022, the term of office for members elected to the local board will commence.

4.       For the period from the commencement of their term of office until their inaugural meeting where members are sworn in (interregnum), decisions may be made by the Auckland Council Chief Executive under existing delegations.

5.       The existing local boards delegation to the Chief Executive requires, amongst other things, that staff consult with the allocated local board portfolio holder/lead on certain decisions. As a temporary measure, this report seeks to allow staff to make decisions without complying with the requirement for consultation during the interregnum. 

6.       Staff also seek confirmation of arrangements for making decisions at the local board level in the period between the final local board meeting and the official end of term. The urgent decision delegations and process that is already in place adequately caters for this scenario.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendations

That the Waiheke Local Board:

a)      confirm that the local board’s existing urgent decisions delegations process will be utilised where decisions are required from the local board between the final local board business meeting 28 September 2022 and the end of term (15 October 2022).

b)      note that from the commencement of the term of office of new members until the inaugural meeting of the incoming local board (interregnum), all decision-making will be undertaken by the Chief Executive under current delegations.

c)      note that the Chief Executive will not be required to comply with consultation requirements in the local boards’ delegation protocols when making decisions during the interregnum.

d)      request that the Chief Executive exercise restraint when making decisions during the interregnum and to consider referring significant decisions to the first meeting of the incoming local board.

 

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       Current elected members remain in office until the new members’ term of office commences, which is the day after the declaration of election results (Sections 115 and 116, Local Electoral Act 2001). The declaration will be publicly notified on 14 October 2022, with the term of office of current members ending and the term of office of new members commencing on 15 October 2022.

8.       The new members cannot act as members of the local board until they have made their statutory declaration at the inaugural local board meeting (Clause 14, Schedule 7, Local Government Act 2002).

9.       Following the last local board meeting of the current electoral term, decisions may be needed on urgent matters or routine business as usual that cannot wait until the incoming local board’s first business meeting in the new electoral term.

10.     As with each of the previous electoral terms, temporary arrangements need to be made and/or confirmed for:

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

Urgent decisions – arrangement for remainder of the term

11.     Between the last business meeting and the declaration of results expected around 14 October 2022, current local board members are still in office and can use their existing urgent decisions delegations to make decisions that are required from the local board during this time.

12.     The urgent decisions process includes a delegation to the chairperson and deputy chairperson that enables them to make decisions on behalf of the local board where it is not practical to call the full board together.

13.     All requests for an urgent decision will need to be supported by adequate staff advice and information and clear recommendations.

Decision-making during the interregnum

14.     All local boards have made a general delegation to the Chief Executive. During the interregnum, any decisions that will be required from the local board, and which cannot wait until a local board meeting, will be undertaken by the Chief Executive under his existing delegations.

15.     The delegation to the Chief Executive is subject to a requirement to comply with the delegation protocols, which require consulting with the local board on some decisions that are made by staff under delegated authority. Consultation is often done through a local board lead (referred to as a portfolio holder in the delegation protocols). The most common area requiring consultation is landowner consents relating to local parks. Parks staff receive a large number of landowner consent requests each month that relate to local parks across Auckland.

16.     During the current term, while the elected members remain in office, staff will continue to consult with leads/portfolio holders as required by the delegation protocols (or chairperson where there is no portfolio holder). However, during the interregnum, staff will be unable to comply with this requirement due to the absence of appointed portfolio holders/lead/chairpersons to consult with.

17.     As a temporary measure, it is recommended that staff continue to process business as usual decisions that cannot wait until the local board’s first business meeting without consultation. Following the election of chairpersons at the inaugural meetings, staff will consult with the chairperson when and if required and can resume consultation with appointed representatives once new arrangements for leads/portfolio holders are in place.

Climate impact statement

18.     This report relates to procedural matters and has no quantifiable climate impacts.

Council group impacts and views

19.     The arrangements proposed in this report enable the council to proceed with necessary business during the election period. During the interregnum, staff will exercise restraint and ensure that any significant decisions are deferred to the incoming local board.

20.     These arrangements apply only to local boards. The reduced political decision-making will be communicated to the wider council group.

21.     The governing body has made its own arrangements to cover the election period, including delegating the power to make urgent decisions between the last governing body meeting of the term and the day the current term ends, to any two of the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and a chairperson of a committee of the whole. From the commencement of the term of office of the new local board members until the governing body’s inaugural meeting, the Chief Executive will carry out decision-making under his current delegations.

Local impacts and local board views

22.     This is a report to all local boards that proposes arrangements to enable the council to process routine local matters during the election period. This will enable the council to meet timeframes and provide good customer service.

Māori impact statement

23.     A decision of this procedural nature is not considered to have specific implications for Māori, and the arrangements proposed in this report do not affect the Māori community differently to the rest of the community.

Risks and mitigations

25.     There is a risk that unforeseen decisions will arise during this period, such as a decision that is politically significant or a decision that exceeds the Chief Executive’s financial delegations.

26.     This risk has been mitigated by scheduling meetings as late as possible in the current term and communicating to reporting staff that significant decisions should not be made during October 2022.

Next steps

27.     The decision of the local board will be communicated to senior staff so that they are aware of the arrangements for the month of October 2022.
