Annual Plan 2016/2017

 

Resolution number HB/2015/173

MOVED by Chairperson JG Parfitt, seconded by Member J Fitzgerald:  

That the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board:

a)         provides the following views on potential Annual Plan 2016/2017 regional issues for the governing body to consider:

i.       Maori Freehold Land Rates - retain the status quo

ii.      Rural rates – a greater differential for farms over 50ha is not supported

iii.     Uniform Annual General Charge (UAGC) – increasing the UAGC to $650 is supported

iv.     a.       Interim Transport Levy (ITL) composition – support business paying a greater share to better reflect the use of the network improvements that are being funded with the levy

b.      request that council works towards targeting those businesses that use transport infrastructure more heavily as part of an interim solution.

b)        agrees the following key advocacy issues for the Annual Plan 2016/2017:

i.       Request funding to address coastal asset degradation, including implementation of the Orewa Beach Esplanade Enhancement Plan (OBEEP), in particular urgent works in zones 3, 3A and 4, Kohu Street to Marine View, Orewa.

ii.      Request equitable Asset Based Service (ABS) operational funding is provided for arts centres, community centres and youth centres.

iii.     Seek acknowledgement of the role that private/community owned assets, such as  Hibiscus Coast Youth Centre and Centrestage Theatre, play in contributing to the overall network of facilities in the Community Facilities Network Plan.

iv.       Request operational funding and resourcing to implement actions and give effect to the Community Facilities Network Plan, to undertake needs assessments, feasibility studies and business cases, and realise capital project delivery.

v.         Request resources and support for local planning and transformation projects, such as town centre development, is addressed particularly in circumstances where local boards have funded town centre plans.

vi.       Request that Penlink is delivered earlier than 2025-2035 to alleviate development issues and ease significant congestion at pinch points affecting residents and businesses on both the Whangaparaoa Peninsula and at Silverdale.  This project will also provide a ‘lifeline’ route when emergency situations cause traffic disruption or road closures along Whangaparaoa Road.  Residents raise ongoing concerns about feeling disconnected due to inadequate access for education, employment and business and Penlink would address many of these significant matters.

vii.      Request that the realignment of the East Coast/Lonely Track/Glenvar Roads intersection is undertaken at the same time as building Glenvar Ridge Road, to address safety concerns.

viii.     Support the development of more localised development contribution catchments to mitigate the effects as development occurs.

ix.       Advocate that development contributions more accurately reflect the cost of reserve land acquisition in the local board area and the actual cost of development.
