LTP 2015-2025 Feedback on mayoral proposal

 

Resolution number HM/2014/188

MOVED by Chairperson VS Neeson, seconded by Member WW Flaunty:  

That the Henderson-Massey Local Board:

a)         Provides the following feedback on the Mayor’s Proposal for the Long Term Plan             2015 -2025. The board:

      i.        Agrees with the principle of conservative financial management but questions whether it is sustainable to restrict the rates increase to below Council’s rate of inflation while proposing major capital projects and having to provide for substantial growth in the plan period.

     ii.        Would like to point out there is a perception among ratepayers that spending is being concentrated in central Auckland. The board notes that of the $226.1m of local projects mentioned (p25) in the proposal, $126.8m are in the old Auckland City Council area, so this message has reinforced the perception. 

    iii.        The board is concerned that there is a public perception that when all the CCOs are taken into account there are more staff employed than under the combined previous councils.

   iv.        Is very concerned that parks, community and lifestyle activity areas takes the brunt of the proposed cuts and asks the Mayor and governing body to consider the impact on the daily lives of all residents.

    v.        Is concerned that the Mayoral Proposal does not support the implementation of the Auckland Plan across all of Auckland.

   vi.        Supports the City Rail Link and considers it essential that a funding mechanism is agreed with central government.

  vii.        Supports public private partnerships to develop council owned sites in areas that are not spatial priorities and requests governing body support for these initiatives to develop Council owned sites in Henderson.

 viii.        The board would not like to see excessive private sponsorships in parks.

   ix.        Does not support targeted rates as a means to achieving council’s strategic plans.

    x.        Supports challenging central government to play its part, and is willing to lobby local MPs.

   xi.        Does not support the sale of parking buildings as these should be a very profitable sources of non-rates revenue. The board recommends reviewing the operation of parking buildings to ensure they are performing above industry standards.

  xii.        Considers that the Westgate library and community centre be included in the list of priority projects as council is contractually obliged to build the library and community centre and has already invested $9m in its preconstruction phase.

 xiii.        Requests the governing body consider a less aggressive progression to fully funding depreciation, with a higher rate of progression in the period 2021 to 2025 to relieve financial pressure in the early years of the plan.

 xiv.        Supports using the cash raised by charging for depreciation (a non-cash charge) and totally fund asset renewals and debt repayment, but this money should not be used for anything else.  This should be clearly disclosed in the Council’s financial statements.

  xv.        Does not support the funding envelop approach. It is not transparent with some areas appearing to have received more favourable treatment eg Watercare, than others.

 xvi.         Notes departmental responses to the Mayor’s proposal seem to have focussed on cutting local initiatives rather than regional.  We ask the governing body to consider whether the organisation is adequately balancing the regional against the local.

xvii.        Observes any moratorium on local planning could have the effect of causing a local development backlog which would need to be addressed by future councils and could continue the ad hoc decision making experienced to date on some local projects.

xviii.        Supports community groups being more involved in delivery of community development and environmental activities whilst noting community groups require support to gain the skills to do this.

 xix.        Supports the commercial approach to the use of pools and recreation centres provided this does not result in under-utilisation of facilities in low income areas.

  xx.        Supports ATEED’s involvement in youth employment.

 xxi.        Supports the Lincoln Road and Te Atatu Road upgrades as these projects are complementary to NZTA’s State Highway 20 project.

xxii.        Supports user pays regulatory fees.

xxiii.        Supports the spatial prioritisation process to be used however noting significant growth will occur in other local areas that require additional support.

xxiv.        Requests the decision making allocation for community safety be transferred to local boards so local boards can tailor community safety programmes to the needs of their communities. Lack of any local community safety budget left the Henderson-Massey local board unable to respond to recent tragic events in Henderson, but bearing the brunt of political responsibility.

xxv.            Requests the decision making allocation for Sustainable Neighbourhoods and Waicare be transferred to local boards so local boards can take responsibility for community led environmental projects in their area.

Financial Policies Issues for Long-term Plan 2015-2025

 

Resolution number HM/2014/189

MOVED by Chairperson VS Neeson, seconded by Member WW Flaunty:  

That the Henderson-Massey Local Board:

a)    provides the following feedback on the Proposed Financial Policies  for the Long Term Plan 2015 -2025. The board:

      i.        Requests inflation be included in the amounts allocated to local boards under the Local Board Funding Policy Locally Driven Initiative provisions  as the uninflated amounts leave the local boards unable to meet budget requirements and will result in decreased levels of service.

     ii.        Supports any changes to the development contributions policy that results in development contributions being spent in the area they are raised.  The board is concerned that growth areas in Massey are not being provided with useable park space as development contributions paid for parks in Massey are directed to a regional fund and used to fund parks purchased outside Massey.

    iii.        Notes that Auckland Council development contributions charges are proportionately lower than other council areas in New Zealand.

   iv.        Do not support using targeted rates to fund infrastructure that was previously partly funded by development contributions such as pools and libraries.

    v.        Supports charging for development contributions based on the  type and size of the building.

   vi.        Suggests that when consulting with the public about the UAGC council should make available information about the effects of the options on the local board areas.

  vii.        Does not support any rating policy, other than the UAGC, that modifies the legislated rate to a rate that results in one group of urban residential ratepayers subsidising another. The west has already provided a three year buffer in the transition to a single rating system and further subsidisation by the west would not be consistent with the financial management strategy principle of fairness.

 

 viii.        Supports continued reduction of the business rate through to 2.0.  Businesses benefit disproportionately from transport and other services provided by council so a lower rates differential is not consistent with the beneficiary pays principle of council’s financial management strategy. It is not necessary to aggressively lower rates as Auckland is now one council and not six competing councils.  It should also be noted that rates are not a critical factor in economic growth and businesses are able to claim their rates as an income tax deduction/GST refund.

   ix.        Supports a rates prompt payment discount of more than 1% to give an incentive for ratepayers to pay their rates in advance.

    x.        Supports the proposed rural differentials.

   xi.        Requests the rural residential differential remain at 0.9 as most rural residential properties do not receive the full range of council services.

  xii.        Requests further information to support an opinion on whether rate support should be available for superannuitants.

 xiii.        Supports retaining existing systems for remitting and postponing rates for community, heritage and sporting organisations, with consistent criteria applied across the region.

 xiv.        Supports the 30% of gross income method for calculating the rental cost of social housing.

   xv.            Supports 100% cost recovery for street trading licenses as adjacent or competing businesses pay both rent and rates.
