That the Henderson-Massey Local Board:

a)          whakarite / provide the following feedback to the Governing Body on whether Māori seats should be established for Auckland Council for the 2025 local elections:

i)           the Henderson-Massey Local Board supports the Parliamentary model, which proposes the establishment of two Māori wards for the 2025 Auckland Council election.

ii)         while the Henderson-Massey Local Board supports the Parliamentary model, it acknowledges that the Royal Commission Model, which involves mana whenua representation, could be explored in the future after the successful implementation of the Parliamentary model.

iii)        the Henderson-Massey Local Board acknowledges the important statutory roles and responsibilities of the Independent Māori Statutory Board under the Local Government (Auckland Council) Act 2009 to uphold the principles of Te Tiriti and to promote issues of significance to Māori within the Auckland Council group, and supports the retention of the IMSB should Māori Wards be introduced.

iv)        the Henderson-Massey Local Board has consistently expressed strong support for ensuring guaranteed Māori representation on the Auckland Council's Governing Body and Local Boards, recognising the importance of indigenous voices in local governance.

v)         with a significant Māori population of 60,400 residing in Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland), it is evident that Māori communities in the city deserve dedicated Māori representation on the Governing Body to ensure their perspectives and interests are adequately considered.

vi)        introducing Māori wards is expected to enhance the decision-making process at the Governing Body by incorporating Kaupapa Māori perspectives and fostering a more inclusive approach to governance that considers the needs and aspirations of Māori communities.

vii)      the Henderson-Massey Local Board has observed the positive outcomes of Māori community leaders actively participating in local decision-making processes in over 30 councils across Aotearoa New Zealand. These examples highlight the benefits of incorporating Māori voices in local government.

viii)     in addition to representation at the Governing Body level, the Henderson-Massey Local Board is eager to discuss Māori representation at the local board level, recognising the significance of local governance in addressing community-specific issues and concerns.

ix)        the Henderson-Massey Local Board acknowledges the important statutory roles and responsibilities of the Independent Māori Statutory Board under the Local Government (Auckland Council) Act 2009 to uphold the principles of Te Tiriti and to promote issues of significance to Māori within the Auckland Council group, and supports the retention of the IMSB should Māori Wards be introduced.

Funding Auckland's Storm Recovery and Resilence

 

Resolution number HM/2023/109

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson B Loader, seconded by Member B Brady:  

That the Henderson-Massey Local Board:

a)      tuhi ā-taipitopito / note that input is being sought from local boards at the same time as public consultation due to the very tight timelines involved and the need to provide certainty for impacted Aucklanders

b)      acknowledge that Auckland’s recovery from the severe weather events of early 2023 is extremely complex and going to require significant investment. We also acknowledge the use of Councils short-term borrowing to get the infrastructure repairs and the category 3 buy-out process moving as quickly as possible.

c)      tuhi ā-taipitopito / note that the January and February flood and storm events have had a huge impact on our local communities and on individual families, with several households experiencing their homes being destroyed for a second time in 17 months. Early evidence indicates the largest cluster of Auckland’s Category 2 and Category 3 properties are in the Henderson-Massey local board area, these homes are around Henderson, Rānui and Swanson. Several of these properties were badly damaged in August 2021 when streams such as Momutu, Swanson and Waimoko burst their banks. We acknowledge these residents whom many had only just moved back into their properties after having completed extensive repairs, only to be driven out again in the Auckland anniversary floods. These communities need solutions to move forward with certainty, as quickly as possible.

d)      whakarite / provide the following feedback to the Governing Body on the funding package that has been provisionally agreed with central government.

e)      tautoko / support in principle the proposed agreement for a $2 billion storm recovery funding package, to be co-funded between central government and Auckland Council.

f)       tautoko / support an approach guided by decisions that are simple, fair, cost-effective, timely, and give certainty to affected Aucklanders and ask that those properties affected by the 2021 and 2023 floods be prioritised.

g)      tautoko / support a locally lead response with Auckland Council taking the lead in the design and implementation of any package.

h)      tono / request a hyper-local community lead response specifically for West Auckland.

i)       tautoko / support Auckland council’s advocacy to central government to establish a national scheme to support recovery from future events, and to put in place better processes for managed retreat in advance of disaster.

j)       tautoko / support the ‘blue-green networks’ in areas with critical flood risks, and the rehabilitation of streams such as Swanson, Opanuku, Waimoko, so that they are more resilient to floods. We acknowledge the Waitakere City Council’s Project Twin Streams modal that was unique in its size and scale to purchase properties threatened by flooding. Flood plains are essential for the health of waterways as they absorb a lot of extra water to help slow the water’s flow.

k)      tautoko / support an increase of stormwater maintenance and overland flow path management prioritising Auckland’s most flood prone streams, which include but are not limited to:

•      Momutu Stream

•      Waimoko Stream

•      Swanson Stream

•      Opanuku Stream

•      Paremuka Stream

•      Oratia Stream

•      Te Wai-o-Pareira / Henderson Creek
