Funding Auckland's Storm Recovery and Resilience

 

Resolution number PKTPP/2023/134

MOVED by Member R Hay, seconded by Chairperson E Kumar:  

That the Puketāpapa Local Board:

a)         support the council accepting the proposed funding package from central government given the only other option is to decline the offer.  Note that full funding by the central government regarding managed retreat is the most appropriate funding mechanism.

b)        support the principles behind the categorisation of properties.

c)         support use of market value, with the possibility of hybrid approach to expediate the process, for the methodology of buy-outs.

d)        note that more assessment Auckland Council is required to understand whether an ownership contribution is appropriate across the whole buy-out process or in specific areas only. Particularly if Auckland Council, in its decisions historically, is in any way responsible for increasing risk to a particular property or area.

e)         do not support fully funding the properties with no or limited insurance noting banks require insurance as part of any borrowing arrangements.  We believe it is appropriate to have a differential between fully insured and under insured properties.

f)          support 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.

b)         note on the current Māori representation in the Independent Māori Statutory Board (IMSB) has two members sit on some of the Auckland Council committees with voting rights.

d)         support the existing representation arrangements, through the IMSB for Auckland Council

e)         oppose additional Māori representation.
