Local board feedback on current proposals for achieving funding equity through the Long-term Plan


Resolution number OP/2023/124

MOVED by Chairperson AR Autagavaia, seconded by Deputy Chairperson O Dewes:  

That the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board:

a)      whakamihi/ thank the work of staff and the leadership of the Joint Governance Working Party (JGWP) for the work to date. The board continues to support the intent of this work to look at a more equitable funding model that isn’t based on historical and somewhat anomalous allocation of assets. 

b)      tuhi ā-taipitopito/ note that the scope of this work relates to a tiny fraction of funding spent in local areas, and therefore while supporting better local board governance and control over its budgets, will not necessarily improve overall equity in outcomes unless a similar lens is applied to a much bigger proportion of council group budgets especially in relation to infrastructure provision and maintenance

c)      tono/ request that the JGWP recommend a prioritised list of areas of council business where similar work to look at equity of funding allocation to/spend in local board areas is investigated. The Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board believe the next most urgent priority is Auckland Transport budgets in capex delivery, asset renewals and maintenance, and public transport service delivery in local board areas





d)      has significant concern about the scope and the results of the analysis contained in the discussion document. The Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board believe that implementation of the recommendations will significantly undermine the stated aim to ensure a more equitable funding allocation of community services budgets

e)      has been informed by project staff that the scope of the analysis of funding inequity and the funding available for redistribution excludes the $65m of discrete projects in the Long-term Plan (LTP).  The board believes this significantly undermines the validity of the analysis

f)       strongly believes that the ongoing need and viability of the discrete projects needs to be analysed further (and will be through LTP 2024-34). Council’s finances and direction on asset-based delivery has changed significantly since a number of these projects were approved. The fact that some of these projects are co-funded externally is an irrelevant consideration as to whether council still requires these projects

g)      believes a more credible analysis should include discrete projects in determining the current funding allocation by local board (as it is in fact currently allocated in the LTP), and also in the quantum of funding available for reallocation. The board understand that these projects would be assessed as part of the LTP, but for the purposes of this work and for the board and the public to provide informed feedback, the accurate current state of budgets should be portrayed

h)      whakaae/agree that growth funding (including unallocated growth) and targeted rate funding should be excluded from the analysis and reallocation calculations.

Transition provision in Local board Funding Policy

i)       is also concerned that the transition provision in the current local board funding policy where the Governing Body agreed that some boards such as Ōtara-Papatoetoe should continue to receive a higher allocation of Locally Driven Initiatives to support some longstanding community outcomes is included and considered an overallocation in the analysis

j)       tuhi ā-taipitopito/note the unjust nature of i) above was demonstrated in the original approach to the Annual Budget 2023/24 where  Ōtara-Papatoetoe stood to lose LDI funding at a rate higher than some other boards

k)      tuhi ā-taipitopito/note that there are a number of anomalies in historic funding allocation. The board request a more credible analysis to address any anomalies.

l)       tono/request that transition provisions in Locally Driven Initiative (LDI) allocation in the Local Board Funding Policy be excluded from current funding allocation to ensure a fairer and accurate picture of current state of equitable funding distribution.

Capex and Opex

m)     tautoko/ support the need to consider capex and opex separately

n)      does not support the proposal to use capex as a funding pool for boards to apply to and raise co-funding for. This is a retrograde step that puts in another bureaucratic and governance hurdle that is unjustified

o)      tuhi ā-taipitopito/note that the requirement for boards to raise co-funding through partnerships, local rates or asset rationalisation will ensure that asset rich and means-rich communities have an inherent advantage in attracting funding from the capex pool

p)      tuhi ā-taipitopito/note that Community Services capex funding has predominantly or exclusively been funded through general rates and asking for these now to be co-funded through local rates seems to be the antithesis of an equitable approach to addressing inequity

q)      believes capex should be allocated through normal transparent budget processes such as the Annual Plan and LTP and not through a new complex and inequitable allocation model.

Transition Timeframe and Alternate Models

r)       tautoko/ support a transition timeframe that mitigates the impact of changes on communities as much as possible. The appropriate transition timeframe will be determined by the funding decisions of the Governing Body. The more funding that is required from re-allocations (as opposed to new funding) a longer timeframe (longer than 3 years) seems justifiable

s)      support an appropriate transition timeframe contingent on a more accurate analysis of the data as advocated above. The inclusion of discrete projects and exclusion of LDI transition budgets under the Local Board Funding Policy will provide a much clearer and accurate picture of options and transition approaches

t)       is generally averse to reallocation as a way of funding equity. However, the board understands that significant and 100% new funding to support this work is unlikely and unaffordable. The board believes that if reallocation is to be justifiable then the date used for the reallocation and a picture of current state must include discrete projects and exclude anomalous transition budgets

Summary of feedback

u)      tono/ request the Joint Governance Working Party to recommend to the Governing Body a prioritised list of other areas of council-wide spending in local areas that should be subject to a similar analysis and change

v)      recommends that the next area of spending for this analysis is Auckland Transport’s capex, renewals, maintenance and public transport service delivery in local board areas

w)     tono/ request that discrete budgets in the Long-term Plan (LTP) is included in the analysis of current state of equitable distribution and in any reallocation pool

x)      excluded transition budgets approved as part of the Local Board Funding Policy

y)      do not establish a capex pool for boards to apply to contingent on co-funding and allocate capex as part of normal transparent budget processes

z)       kohuki/ consider the appropriate transition time once the source of funding for implementation has been confirmed.     







Local board feedback on the draft Future Development Strategy


Resolution number OP/2023/125

MOVED by Chairperson AR Autagavaia, seconded by Member A Lim:  

That the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board:

a)              whakarite / provide feedback on the draft Future Development Strategy.

i)               tuhi ā-taipitopito /note that local residents of Ōtara-Papatoetoe communities are very supportive of the strategy, with at least 72 per cent positive and supporting each of the questions asked in the feedback

ii)             tuhi ā-taipitopito/ note that the majority of submitters across all of Auckland also supported each question, however, for questions 1 and 2, feedback from Ōtara-Papatoetoe residents were 90 per cent and 90 per cent respectively, supportive – compared to 66 per cent and 75 per cent across Auckland. The first two questions are about having growth in urban areas and around local centres. The large percentages of support from local residents is possibly explained in that the local board area is very urbanised, and people recognise the need to develop brown field areas before moving into green field areas

iii)            tuhi ā-taipitopito/ note that the feedback from the local people shows concern for maintenance, renewal and upgrades of the current infrastructure in the local area as these are urban centres of the city. Communities of Ōtara-Papatoetoe acknowledge the need for intensification and protecting our green spaces and therefore a focus on investment into our urban areas and our infrastructure is crucial

iv)            tono/ request that in finalizing the draft Future Development Strategy full consideration is given to directing investment in Ōtara-Papatoetoe in ways to ensure equitable development in the region and providing quality urban environments for those living in conditions of high deprivation

v)             appreciate that local boards received the feedback from the local areas in time for finalizing our comments on the draft Future Development Strategy

vi)            tautoko/ support and ohia/ endorse the feedback from the Manukau Harbour Forum on the Draft Future Development Strategy (attachment B)

vii)          whakamihi/ thank the Governing Body for the opportunity to provide feedback on this work in shaping the future of the city.







Local board feedback on the Tāmaki Makaurau Recovery Plan and Making Space for Water


Resolution number OP/2023/126

MOVED by Chairperson AR Autagavaia, seconded by Member A Lim:  

That the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board:

a)      whakarite / provide the following feedback on the Tāmaki Makaurau Recovery Plan and the Making Space for Water programme, as set out in the public consultation documents (Attachments A, B, and C):

                  i)           tautoko/ support, in principle, the nine Making Space for Water initiatives

                ii)           tautoko/ support an increased focus on prevention and solutions to reduce the impact and damage of climate change

               iii)           tuhi ā-taipitopito/ note that although all the Making Space for Water programme initiatives are needed, they cannot be funded purely through a targeted rate or rates increase as that will put increased strain on our community who are already loaded with cost-of-living pressures

               iv)           tuhi ā-taipitopito/ note that there should be increased funding and support from Central Government to support the Making Space for Water programme

                 v)           tono/ request, where possible, quick wins, that can have a faster impact for affected and at-risk communities, are sought and implemented

               vi)           support the need for targeted engagement with those areas who were most affected by the floods and who experience more frequent and severe flooding

             vii)           tuhi ā-taipitopito/ note that the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board area has an increasing level of intensification, development, and brownfields and request plans and policies are future-focused to ensure that areas currently not experiencing severe flooding do not become at-risk in future

            viii)           tuhi ā-taipitopito/ note the importance of education and information-sharing in helping to prevent and minimise the damage from flooding and other climate change influenced weather events

               ix)           tuhi ā-taipitopito/ note that both need to ensure equity of outcome through considering the unique situation and community of each area and the affect this has on the ability to respond to an event like flooding, as some areas will be better positioned than others to implement preventative measures and stand-up projects during the recovery phase request effective, timely and repeated communications to affected residents regarding assistance post-event, including rates rebates

                x)           tono/ request engagement with residents who have private streams to ensure they are sufficiently aware of the programme and provide support to assist them to implement changes needed

               xi)           tono/ request that when assessing damages, the Plan includes informal housing, including garages, so that those in informal housing are still able to receive assistance



b)      whakarite / provide the following feedback on the proposed principles and structure of the Tāmaki Makaurau Recovery Plan

               i)         tautoko/ support the seven proposed principles of the Tāmaki Makaurau Recovery Plan

              ii)         tautoko/ support engagement with mana whenua on the Tāmaki Makaurau Recovery Plan

            iii)         tono/ request targeted engagement and ensure consultation with ethnic groups and smaller communities to ensure all perspectives and heard and taken into account

            iv)         tuhi ā-taipitopito/ note that not all communities and people find engaging with council processes easy and therefore council needs to ensure all efforts are made to reach those groups

              v)         tono/ request translations of all materials in more languages to ensure increased engagement and understanding of the issues

            vi)         tono/ request frequent communication and engagement with local boards throughout this process and when the Tāmaki Makaurau Recovery Plan is reviewed as local boards are able to provide key local knowledge, context and communications





Local board feedback on the proposed direction of the draft Waste Management and Minimisation Plan 2024


Resolution number OP/2023/127

MOVED by Chairperson AR Autagavaia, seconded by Deputy Chairperson O Dewes:  

That the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board

a)          whakarite / provide feedback on the proposed direction of the draft Waste Management and Minimisation Plan for 2024-2030 as follows:

i)                      tautoko/ support continuing the current pathway to zero waste by 2040

ii)                    tuhi ā-taipitopito/ note that food scraps roll out must be coupled with effective community engagement for our culturally and linguistically diverse communities. Community education is necessary as families get to understand, learn and practice the change. This will be a significant change to waste collection, including the eventual fortnightly collection of all waste

iii)                   tono/ request for regional investment for more community recycling centres

iv)                   tono/ request that Auckland Council advocate to central government for investment in the development of the Eco Park in South Auckland, designed to promote a circular economy and a resource recovery centre for the region

v)                    tono/ request that more effort be put into the reduction of commercial waste which is the largest contributor to waste going to landfill, and for which has not been on target under the previous Plan



vi)                   tautoko/ support key opportunities in para 34 of the report, in particular

·        Refreshing our focus areas for commercial waste streams,

·        Strengthening our focus on climate change mitigation, adaptation and resilience

·        Extending our food scraps collection services to additional urban areas in alignment with central government requirements

·        Strongly support action for reflecting ways to strengthen our partnership approach and opportunities with mana whenua and to recognise the benefits of te ao Māori in waste management and minimization

·        Re-focusing advocacy to central government to ensure the 2023 waste strategy goals are delivered and targets met, and that cross-ministry policy supports a circular economy

vii)                 advocate that council learn from the rates vs user pays discussion over funding general waste collection, i.e. challenging the assumption that user pays as a tool to reduce waste disposal, rather that rates funded can be just as effective, and cost the same.







Auckland Transport - Auckland Rail Programme Business Case (ARPBC)




Resolution number OP/2023/128

MOVED by Chairperson AR Autagavaia, seconded by Member A Lim:  

That the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board:

a)          tautoko / support, in principle, the Auckland Rail Programme Business Case 30-Year Investment Plan

b)         tuhi ā-taipitopito /note that the purpose of the Auckland Rail Programme is aligned to the goals of the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board Plan 2020 and the draft Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board Plan 2023 – A well connected local area; Our Places with accessible, reliable and safe transport options for all

c)          tuhi ā-taipitopito /note the following feedback comments

               i)         tautoko/ support the need for a well-maintained, resilient and attractive heavy rail network that supports passenger and freight movements and delivers economic benefits to both the regional and national economy

              ii)         tono/ request that rail transport infrastructure planning is prioritized for Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board area and wider South Auckland. These areas of the south have a high need for increased capacity, speed and reliability of public transport services

            iii)         tautoko /support all moves to achieve results for the Transport Emissions Reduction Pathway (TERP) which was endorsed by Auckland Transport’s board and adopted by Auckland Council in August 2022

            iv)         tautoko/ support Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri’s (Auckland's Climate Plan) target to halve Auckland’s regional emissions by 2030 and see the Auckland Rail Business Case as a critical step in the right direction to reduce carbon emissions

              v)         note the commuter needs are high as is currently evident in the local board area and its adjacent board areas e.g. The rail line between Wiri and Westfield areas is known to be the busiest in the country. The Auckland Rail Programme Business Case needs to be a timed to meet needs of residential growth and development in South Auckland

            vi)         tono/ request that the business case include a reference to local urban regeneration programmes such as Transform Manukau, Unlock Papatoetoe, that are supported by the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board, as these plans need to inform the Auckland Rail Programme Business Case. Such referencing will help inform the business case for cogent planning for key sites and locations such the Manukau Sports Bowl for instance

          vii)         appreciates that the Auckland Rail Programme Business Case is vital for progress at national, regional and local levels. However, at the same time has concern for those residents and families that are asked to bear the burden of the greater common good. The board requests that measures be considered to minimize risks and mitigating the adverse impacts such as noise on those properties and residents




         viii)         recognize that the Auckland Rail Programme Business Case can deliver a critical piece of infrastructure to the regional and national economy. Ensuring that such infrastructure is resilient and protected from risky events, weather and human activities must be built into the planning. There are lessons and insights to draw from recent experiences – adverse weather, storms, floods, and the incidents of fire at Sims Pacific Metals (Favona, James Fletcher Dr).. Changing or strengthening legislative and/or regulatory measures, including Land Zoning (Auckland Unitary Plan) and timely enforcement is a must. Engaging with local boards and communities on the impact of any change to land use must be early and in time

            ix)         tono/ request that important Local Board planning documents such as Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board – Area Plan, its Middlemore Addendum, Local Paths (Greenways) Plan and the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Urban Ngahere action plan are referred to, at all stages in informing the Auckland Rail Programme Business Case

              x)         tono/ request attention to the key moves identified in the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Area Plan - Middlemore Addendum and advocates for investment and resourcing for the opportunities identified in the plan. Integrating planning and funding for the key moves of the Middlemore Addendum, into the construction timelines, will make the Auckland Rail Business Case be effective in servicing the local area, South Auckland and the wider Auckland region as well

            xi)         note that it will be a timely opportunity to design and build the ‘southern spur’ as part of the Auckland Rail Business Case, to build a well-connected area. Manukau is more than a metropolitan centre and services southern Auckland which extends into Hamilton/Tauranga. It is unfortunate that people from the south have to transfer at Puhinui Station and wait before back tracking to go to Manukau. Commuters to and from Manukau central area is growing as is the tertiary hub with Manukau Institute of Technology, Auckland University of Technology as well as many government departments and offices, apartments, entertainment, retail and industry

          xii)         tautoko /support all moves to improve connections and accessibility for the benefit of local communities, noting that support for the Auckland Rail Programme Business case paves the way for enhancing business opportunities

         xiii)         tautoko /support initiatives such as the Auckland Rail Business Case and request that local social procurement is the default position in business planning to ensure pathways for work and employment for local communities

         xiv)         tono/ request that communication and public engagement be tailored to the local context for such a large programme; to provide clear communications to help ethnically and linguistically diverse communities be supported to give informed views and feedback even if for instance they do not live in close proximity to planned rail stations (currently three in the local board area)

          xv)         tono/ request that associated planning for park and ride services and urban housing, high-rise dwelling around need also to be reflected in the Auckland Rail Business Case.

d)         appreciate the opportunity for local boards to give early feedback.





Auckland Civil Defence Emergency Management Group Plan


Resolution number OP/2023/129

MOVED by Chairperson AR Autagavaia, seconded by Deputy Chairperson O Dewes:  

That the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board provide the following feedback on the draft CDEM Group Plan provided as Attachment A of the report:

a)      tautoko/ support, in principle, the overall approach taken in the CDEM Group Plan and the moves to decentralise and integrate a local perspective in the planning

b)      tono/request that resourcing local communities need to be hand-in-hand, noting that large parts of communities of Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board area are living in conditions of high deprivation. Our communities need to be resourced to respond to and be resilient in emergencies. While they have demonstrated immense capacity to weather the storms of adversity, be it the pandemic, the tornado in Papatoetoe and the floods and storms this year, their community resources have worn-thin. More specifically, while the mission of the plan says “empowering and supporting everybody to be ready to respond to and recover from emergencies”, one of the cross cutting themes is equity and inclusiveness, which only talks about superdiversity – not the ability (funding and resourcing) of communities

c)      tautoko / support the fourth theme of accountability and transparency. The board identified that collection of data and progress was an issue at the Civil Defence Centre in Otara during one of the weather events earlier this year. Decisions were being made at the regional level based on incomplete data collected locally. Data collection processes need to be improved, and/or direct input from local leaders of CDCs need to be included in the structure of the CDEM

d)      tono/ request for a periodic update to the local board on the progress on the CDEM Group Plan.
