f)       provide feedback on the Annual Budget 2019/2020 on the regional proposals as follows:

Changes to rates and fees

Proposal

Feedback

Increase to the waste management targeted rate base charges.

Not supported as costs should be covered by those who create excess waste rather than applying a targeted rate.

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

Support all initiatives which reduce waste however note most Waiheke residents compost their own food scraps and a rate for this service on Waiheke would not be supported.

Phasing out the Waitākere rural sewerage service and targeted rate.

No feedback due to the low number of submissions on this topic.

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.

Do not support not charging rates on the listed criteria of religious use properties.

Increases to some regulatory fees to maintain cost recovery

Resource consent and building fees:

Do not support the increased charges due to the high fees already, and it could deter people from completing minor improvements.

Harbourmaster fees:

Generally do not support as responsible boat owners shouldn’t have to pay for those that leave boats damaged or abandoned.

 

g)      support the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 regarding transfer of legal ownership of properties within the council group.

CARRIED
