Auckland Council submission on the Inquiry into Climate Adaptation

 

Resolution number MO/2023/144

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson H Fatu Toleafoa, seconded by Member C O'Brien:  

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      tautoko / support in principle the intent of the Climate Adaption set out in the Ministry for the Environment’s Issues and Options paper, highlighting community-led retreat, how the costs of adoption will be met, role clarification, Māori participation, regulatory alignment and assessing progress and provide the following feedback to be considered in Auckland Council’s submission:

i)           community-led decision-making is a valuable approach, but it frequently lacks the necessary resources for successful implementation. It's essential to recognise that empowering communities to make decisions about their own well-being is a positive step toward inclusivity and tailored solutions. However, to ensure its effectiveness, there must be adequate provision of financial, human, and infrastructural resources, as well as capacity-building support. This ensures that communities have the tools and means to execute their decisions and achieve the intended outcomes, ultimately promoting a more equitable and participatory decision-making process. Recent public engagements hosted by the local board highlighted the community’s consistency in seeking more community-led responsibilities, rather than decisions coming from the top-down (like the government or local officials telling them what to do)

ii)          our communities are motivated to contribute towards efforts to reduce climate change effects but barriers such as socio-economic disparities make it harder for our community to participate in programmes and activities to help reduce the causes of extreme weather patterns. The local board supports officials working together with the community to develop plans that are specific to our needs and cultural values. This way, everyone can adapt to climate change in a way that works for us all

iii)        it is crucial to acknowledge that the foundation of environmental practices lies within the hau kainga, as they hold intricate and specialised knowledge about the environment. This knowledge should be recognized as the starting point, rather than mere input, in the development of sustainable environmental strategies. By respecting and integrating their wisdom from the outset, we not only empower indigenous communities but also ensure that environmental initiatives are rooted in a deep understanding of local ecosystems, thereby promoting more effective and harmonious approaches to environmental conservation and management

iv)        tautoko / support integrating Māori cultural values, practices, and sites into adaptation efforts, and ensuring Te Tiriti principles are included to all climate response initiatives and acknowledging mana whenua perspectives and rights

v)          while the three-stage risk assessment process serves as a valuable framework, it is also essential to adopt a comprehensive approach that balances theoretical understanding with practical methodologies, acknowledging the complexities associated with each stage. Therefore, the local board support comprehensive risk assessment for effective planning that is informed by our local community

vi)        regularly reviewing risk assessments is crucial for maintaining accuracy and relevance, especially with advancing technology and evolving knowledge. The local board support involving a diverse range of stakeholders, including residents and local officials as being essential to assessments. In providing insights such as historical data on flood events and infrastructure weaknesses and adding value to a comprehensive risk assessment

vii)       implementing a local adaptation plan based on the level of risk and various scenarios including changing in risk levels is important for community preparedness. Enabling resources being directed towards areas facing the highest threats is crucial but efficient and effective. This is important particularly in areas prone to flooding risks such as our local streams and surrounding areas, and industrial areas prone to fires, to safeguard our community

viii)     approaching adaption in a balanced way is important. Option two, supporting a voluntary and mandatory component supports this principle. This balanced approach provides a way between individual agency and collective safety. For example, in a coastal retreat scenario, voluntary participation might allow residents to choose relocation alternatives that align with their preferences, while mandatory aspects ensure that critical safety measures are universally implemented

ix)        a clear equity provision or principle is imperative, extending beyond resource allocation to encompass a comprehensive perspective that actively considers and addresses the unique needs and challenges of marginalized and underrepresented communities. This equity lens ensures that decision-making processes, policies, and initiatives not only provide adequate resources but also actively work to reduce disparities, prioritize inclusivity, and promote fairness, thus fostering a more just and equitable society

x)          the lack of a dedicated funding framework for adaptation leads to uncertainty in cost-sharing. For instance, in areas where existing infrastructure requires significant upgrades, like Ōtāhuhu, there are barriers in having no clear budget and allocation hinders the implementation of crucial adaptation measures

xi)        tautoko / support providing financial provision to individuals, businesses, and communities facing the need for retreat as it is crucial in prevention of significant economic losses. However, this support must be carefully managed to strike a balance between incentivising responsible property ownership and alleviating hardship. For example, in the aftermath of the flooding early this year, offering targeted financial aid to affected individuals helped recovery and adaptation effectively

xii)       tuhi ā-taipitopito / note for everyone to work together, the government should clearly inform its community where they're putting their investment for climate protection by making an announcement every six years, along with the national plan for dealing with climate change. This will help the council and government to work together to address flood protection and nature-friendly solutions

xiii)     tuhi ā-taipitopito / note adapting through recovery requires clear guidance and consistency for reassessing risks after a disaster. This is compounded by uncertainty about decision-making authority regarding land-use changes to address risk (central government or councils) as an example. Also, uncertainty about the retreat process, including funding and responsibility concerns the local board.

Local board feedback on proposals for fees and charges for the financial year 2024/2025

 

Resolution number MO/2023/147

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson H Fatu Toleafoa, seconded by Member M Kolo:  

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      tuhi ā-taipitopito / note the proposed changes:

i)           phase two of Active Communities fees and charges review – Membership fees, Aquatic entrance fees, Swim school fees and Recreation fees; including the Ōtāhuhu Pool and Leisure Centre and Moana-Nui-ā-Kiwa Pool and Leisure Centre

ii)          phase one of Venue Hire and Bookable Spaces review

b)      whakaae / approve deferring its feedback on the proposed changes to local fees and charges regional proposals until the public consultation phases results are presented in full to the local board as this will also allow the local board to be more informed in setting its local fees and charges schedule, and local performance measures

c)      whakarite / provide the following feedback in the interim:

i)           is concerned that increasing fees and charges in our local facilities exacerbates existing disparities on communities such as Māngere-Ōtāhuhu. We urge the Governing Body to implement an equity-based fee structure, to ensure fair access for all residents especially in communities where household budgets are struggling to cope with the cost of living

ii)          acknowledge that pricing has become a substantial obstacle for our community to access local facilities, potentially driving residents to opt for more affordable private alternatives.  Auckland Council should explore innovative ways to align pricing with community expectations while maintaining service excellence as a priority

iii)        is opposed to the introduction of spectator fees and is viewed as a negative development for its community. It raises concerns that this is an obstacle to accessing council swimming pools, particularly for parents observing their children or attendees at community events. This policy may inadvertently deter community engagement and participation, which runs counter to the local board’s goal of fostering inclusivity and accessibility, and request to review this policy

iv)        the board's drive to grant adults free access to local pools via a targeted rate highlights its dedication and commitment to foster community health and wellbeing. We propose the Governing Body allocate regional funds, contributing to the forecasted 3.5% inflation for council’s local recreation services in 2024/2025. This measure will assist local ratepayers amid current economic challenges.

Katoa, Ka Ora - draft Auckland Speed Management Plan 2024-2027

 

Resolution number MO/2023/148

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson H Fatu Toleafoa, seconded by Member P Peo:  

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      tuhi ā-taipitopito / note Auckland Transport’s responses to previous local board queries about Katoa, Ka Ora (Attachment A)

b)      whiwhi / receive and express gratitude to submitters on the Auckland Speed Management Plan 2024-2027. A total of 7,927 submissions were received - 340 submissions from the local board area, 71 from local residents, and the remainder from visitors, commuters, cyclists and pedestrians

c)      acknowledge the Katoa, Ka Ora programme on a reduction in deaths and serious injury since June 2020. When the safe speed programme started, road deaths reduced 30 per cent in the areas where speed limits have changed. In comparison over this same period, the rest of the network has seen a 9 per cent increase in road deaths

d)      acknowledge the customer research findings and pleasing to see that:

i)           61% of residents believe lower speed limits could decrease accidents, and 74% are open to longer travel times for safer roads

ii)          initially, 44% oppose speed limit reductions, while 43% support. With information on reduced accidents, support increased to 57%, peaking at 74% for limits near schools and community sites

iii)        parents strongly support school speed limits and safety measures, enabling safer walking to school

e)      tautoko / support the location and scope of the proposed speed limit changes identified for this local board area (Attachment C and Attachment E)

f)       tautoko / support a speed limit review of additional locations requested in public consultation feedback and recommended for the next future consultation in Attachment C, and request that the review results are workshopped prior to final decisions on speed limits in the identified areas

g)     tuhi ā-taipitopito / note that Māori are 12% of Auckland's population but represent 16% of road deaths and injuries and request that more is done to reverse this rate by transport authorities, Auckland Council and central Government through infrastructure interventions, education and training programmes

h)     reiterate the following:

i)           tono / request for more investment to engage with the varied ethnic and cultural communities in local area noting that demographic profile of submitters is disproportionate to the ethnic and cultural diversity of this local board area

ii)          tono / request action to implement signage including electronic signage on changes to speed zones in a timely manner to ensure awareness and safety for all

iii)        tono / request ongoing dialogue with the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board to ensure community voices are considered in regional and national transport projects

iv)        tono / request action for community safety education and ongoing training in parallel to roll out of speed changes, that is coordination of education and enforcement activities

v)          continue to stress the need for action on safety concerns through infrastructure improvements by Auckland Transport through their other programmes at all high- risk locations

vi)        tono / request areas where urbanisation and motorisation continue to grow are investigated to reduce speed limits as these places are where cars, cyclists and pedestrians mostly interact.
