5.   Our Space 2018-2048: Greater Christchurch Settlement Pattern Update  Whakahāngai O Te Hōrapa Nohoanga - Report and Recommendations of the Hearings Panel

 

Committee Comment

The Independent Chair and Committee members acknowledged and thanked the Hearings Panel for their work and also acknowledged the considerable service provided by staff from across the Partnership. Members acknowledged the continuing importance of such collaborative working.

The Committee noted that periodic monitoring and review is an integral part of ensuring Our Space is a living document and that this will be informed by a further capacity assessment scheduled to be completed in 2020.

The Committee noted that there will be consequential changes to Chapter 6 of the Canterbury Regional Policy Statement (CRPS) and it is hoped these will be fully supported by the Partnership. The Committee noted the Panel’s recommendation not to support a number of submitters requesting that their land be enabled for urban development and that these people would be advised that a submission as part of the full review of the CRPS is the best method to pursue such requests.

5.     Information and advice for the incoming Committee and partner governance

Reference:

19/907521

Presenter(s):

Keith Tallentire, Partnership Manager

 

 

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is to outline a proposed approach for information and advice to be provided to the incoming Greater Christchurch Partnership Committee, and partner governance representatives more broadly, following the local body elections in October 2019.

2.   Relationship to Partnership Objectives

2.1       A strong commitment to partnership working during the next triennium period will be assisted by a good understanding of the purpose of, and background to, the Greater Christchurch Partnership including the principles that underlie effective collaboration. Te Tira Tū Tahi - One Group, Standing Together.

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Greater Christchurch Partnership Committee:

1.         Affirms a commitment to continued partnership working for the next triennium, acknowledging the role of the incoming Committee in considering and agreeing the priorities for the Partnership following the local body elections.

2.         Notes that the Chief Executives Advisory Group will oversee preparations for the agreed approach to assist the incoming Committee and partner governance. 

4.   Context

Reconvening the GCP Committee post-elections

4.1       This is the last meeting of the Committee for this triennium period.

4.2       The Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) for this Committee, endorsed in April 2017 and subsequently ratified by partner councils, is included as Attachment A.

4.3       This MoA confirms that the Committee is not disestablished at the end of this current triennium period and so enables the Committee to endure and reconvene once partner representatives have been confirmed.

4.4       The first meeting of the incoming Committee is therefore likely to be scheduled for late November or early December 2019 to allow time for such appointments to occur.

GCP Committee workshop

4.5       A workshop of the GCP Committee on 12 July 2019 provided some initial thoughts on matters that would assist the incoming Committee and partner governance. It requested that the Chief Executives Advisory Group (CEAG) come back to this Committee with some structured advice for further consideration.

4.6       This paper outlines the proposed actions and steps recommended by CEAG arising from its last meeting at the end of July.

5.   Assisting a renewed Partnership

5.1       A summary A3 diagram of the recommended approach is included as Attachment B and explained further below.

5.2       The objectives that inform this approach include:

·    providing clear, simple and engaging material on the purpose of the Partnership

·    succinctly explaining the genesis of, and background to, the Partnership and UDS

·    allowing time for the incoming Committee to establish and find it's feet, and

·    ensuring there is good understanding of potential opportunities and challenges to inform Committee consideration of priorities for the 2019-2022 triennium period.

5.3       Much of the information would be equally useful for wider dissemination amongst partner governance, so opportunities to integrate such material within individual partner briefing programmes would be encouraged.

General partnership related information and activities

5.4       The following information will be prepared and activities scheduled to establish baseline understanding of the Partnership, familiarisation with the wider Greater Christchurch area, and enable early partner governance networking opportunities.

·    Partnership Overview (2 page summary)

·    UDS Background summary

·    Partnership video perspectives from GCP representatives (past and present)

·    Partnership Post-election Networking event for all partner governance

·    Greater Christchurch familiarisation coach tour(s) and/or site visit(s)

Reaffirming a collaborative approach

5.5       Underpinning any voluntary partnership will be the commitment, leadership and collaboration principles demonstrated by partnership representatives and partner organisations.

5.6       Before the Partnership considers priorities for the next triennium it would benefit from a short period to reaffirm these foundation aspects and allow new representatives to contribute fresh insights and perspectives.

5.7       Where appropriate, this could involve both separate and joint sessions assisted by a facilitator familiar with multi-agency partnership working.  

Opportunities and challenges for Greater Christchurch

5.8       The Partnership, partner organisations and other agencies collectively hold a wealth of information on the likely future opportunities and challenges facing Greater Christchurch. Much of this is contained in a range of recent publications but it would benefit from being consolidated, summarised and supplemented to fill any knowledge gaps.

5.9       Central Government will be integral to how these matters might be addressed and it continues to outline an ambitious series of reforms relevant to urban areas across New Zealand. An understanding of the Government agenda would form part of this work.

5.10    This condensed, up-to-date evidence base would then be invaluable in assisting the Committee determine priorities for the next triennium. It would also help distinguish what is best progressed collaboratively through the Partnership versus being undertaken separately but within an agreed and coordinated framework. 

A Partnership fit for purpose Partnership for the 2019-2022 triennium

5.11    The Partnership has advanced some key land use matters this triennium, particularly through the future development strategy. Looking to the next triennium it will be important that the Partnership builds on this and other work to establish and champion clear priorities. These priorities should:

·    reflect on the aspirations and strengths of Greater Christchurch

·    consider opportunities to align with the Government agenda, and

·    present a compelling way forward for Greater Christchurch and the value this can provide to New Zealand.

5.12    Feedback at the GCP Committee workshop suggested advice to the incoming Committee should not be too prescriptive and instead be framed as questions to guide such discussions. Examples could include:

a.    What are the big opportunities and challenges facing Greater Christchurch?

b.    How relevant is the direction outlined in the UDS2007?

c.    What are the key remaining elements of the intended UDS Review?

d.    How best to align local priorities with the Government agenda?

e.    How to complement regional and South Island partnerships?

f.     How to be aware of and adaptable to significant changes in the way we live and work brought about by demographic, social, economic, technological and environmental change?

And arising from that:

g.    What are Partnership priorities for the 2019-2022 triennium?

h.    How to continue to integrate and align the work of individual local organisations and agencies to best effect?

i.     How can partners combine skills, knowledge and resources to work most effectively? 

5.13    Following the Committee reaching agreement on Partnership priorities it could then review associated matters and arrangements such as appropriate structures, membership, the MoA, geographical boundaries, frequency for Committee meetings, etc

5.14    The steps would place the Committee in a good position to then extend a further invite to relevant Ministers to discuss strengthened central-local government engagement.

6.   Next steps

6.1       Following the Committee’s consideration and direction on this matter the Independent Chair and Partnership Manager will work with the CEAG to finalise the necessary materials and schedule the agreed programme of activities.

6.2       Partner Chief Executives will also be requested to consider how such arrangements can be effectively integrated within individual partner briefing programmes.
