That the Henderson-Massey Local Board:

a)         receive consultation feedback on the Henderson-Massey Local Board priorities for 2019/2020.

Funding for a pool in the north west.

Bring forward funding in the Long-Term Plan to achieve earlier delivery of a pool in the north west to meet existing and expected growth needs.

Funding for Te Whau Pathway.

 

Allocate funding in the Long-Term Plan to Te Whau Pathway project in recognition of the important contribution it will make to the regional walking and cycling network.

c)         receive consultation feedback on regional proposals in the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and on the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 regarding property transfer of legal ownership of properties within the council group.

d)        provide the following feedback on the regional proposals in the draft Annual Budget 2019/2020:

Changes to rates and fees

Proposal

Feedback

Increase to the waste management targeted rate base charges.

Support the increase.

Extending food scraps collection targeted rates to the North Shore former trial area.

Support the extension.

Phasing out the Waitākere rural sewerage service and targeted rate.

Support bringing on-site wastewater systems under a regional compliance scheme, noting that improving water quality is a major issue for Auckland and the existing arrangement in the Waitākere area has not delivered desired improvements.

Notes the minimal impact for Henderson-Massey residents.

Adjusting the urban rating area.

Support the adjustment to incorporate areas that receive the same service as adjacent urban neighbours.

 

 

 

Changes to rating of religious use properties.

Notes that the proposal in the consultation material was poorly expressed and lacked context for the community and the board to understand adequately the impact of the changes; consequently, the board has no position on this matter.

Notes that under the Local Government Act land used for religious worship, religious education or as a cemetery is already not rated.

Increases to some regulatory fees to maintain cost recovery

Support the increase.

e)         support the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 regarding transfer of legal ownership of properties within the council group, noting the proposal is financially prudent and simplifies the handover of maintenance and operational   activities once developments are complete.
