Auckland Boards on the Auckland Council

The Herald surveyed chairs of local boards in Auckland how they think the Council is going. The story is here and the raw responses are here. I’ve collated the scores below.

Model Plan Council CCOs Mayor Average
Albert-Eden 3 2 1 4 3 2.6
Devonport-Takapuna 3.5 4 3.5 4 4 3.8
Franklin 4 3 3 4 3 3.4
Howick 4 3 2 3 1 2.6
Maungakiekie-Tamaki 4 4 4 3 4 3.8
Otara-Papatoetoe 4 2 4 4 4 3.6
Orakei 1 2 2 2 1 1.6
Waiheke 4 3.5 4 3.5 4 3.8
Waitakere Ranges 3 3 3 3 3 3
Waitemata 3.5 3 3 3 4 3.3
Whau 4 5 4 4 4 4.2
Upper Harbour 3 3 3 3 3 3
Average 3.4 3.1 3.0 3.4 3.2 3.2

So the two elements that get the highest average scores are the model itself, and the CCOs. This is worth noting as Labour fought against both. Labour wanted no local boards, but instead larger bodies around the size of the old Council. They also fought against the CCO model, and that is the aspect local board chairs say is working best.

Mayor Len Brown is a bit lower on 3.2/5. The Council’s long-term plan is 3.1 and the Council (as in the Councillors) are 3.0.

The three happiest board chairs are Whau, Maungakiekie-Tamaki and Devonport-Takapuna. The three least happy are Orakei, Howick and Albert-Eden.
