File No.: CP2017/25217




1.       To present the Mayoral Proposal for the Ten-year Budget 2018-2028 (Long-term Plan) including proposed items for consultation.

Executive summary

2.       The Mayoral Proposal for the Ten-year Budget 2018-2028 sets out the Mayor’s priorities and policy direction for Auckland Council for the next ten years.

3.       The key elements of the Mayoral Proposal are:

a)      introduction of a regional fuel tax to fund transport investment activities

b)      general rates rises at 2.5% for the first two years and 3.5% for each year after that, balancing the need to increase infrastructure spending with the need to keep rate increases low and reasonable

c)      a strong commitment to continue to find greater value for money and efficiency in Council spending

d)      accelerating investment in water quality improvement through the introduction of a water quality targeted rate

e)      increasing investment in protection of our natural environment through the introduction of an environmental levy

f)       changes to the rating of the online accommodation sector

g)      disestablishing the CCO Auckland Council Investments Limited with the investments in Auckland International Airport Limited and Ports of Auckland Limited to be transferred to Council parent.

4.       Many of these elements will require public consultation and will be the focus of the discussion and decision-making of the Finance and Performance Committee on 11 December 2017.

5.       The officers’ report for the 11 December 2017 committee meeting will include supporting material for the items above and other items arising from Auckland Council’s plans, policies and rating matters that are required to be included in the Ten-year Budget 2018-2028 public consultation document.



That the Finance and Performance Committee:

a)      receive the Mayoral Proposal for the Ten-year Budget 2018-2028.
