Local board input into the Emergency Budget 2020/2021 (Cover Report)

File No.: CP2020/09022




Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       This is a late covering report on the Local Board input into the Emergency Budget 2020/2021, which seeks Waitākere Ranges Local Board feedback on the proposed regional topics in the Emergency Budget 2020/2021.

2.       The comprehensive agenda report was not available when the agenda went to print and will be available at the Extraordinary Meeting of the Waitākere Ranges Local Board meeting on 9 July 2020.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

3.       Auckland Council publicly consulted from 29 May to 19 June 2020 to seek community views on the proposed Emergency Budget 2020/2021.

4.       The Annual Budget 2020/2021 was first consulted on in February/March 2020 (Consultation part 1). Since this consultation was undertaken, the COVID-19 pandemic exerted significant pressure on the council’s financial position, which has flow-on effects for the proposed budget for the 2020/2021 financial year. The council considered what those impacts are likely to be and has asked Aucklanders for their views on aspects of the proposed budget, now referred to as Emergency Budget 2020/2021, through a second round of consultation (Consultation part 2).

5.       During the second round of consultation, Aucklanders were asked for their views on three key proposals:

-    general rates increase for 2020/2021 of either 2.5 per cent or 3.5 per cent

-    rates postponement for ratepayers impacted by COVID-19

-    suspending the targeted rate paid by accommodation providers.

6.       The council received feedback through telephone interviews, written forms, including online and hard copy forms, emails, and letters.

7.       The comprehensive report to be tabled at the meeting will summarise the public feedback received through Consultation part 2 on the proposed Emergency Budget 2020/2021.

8.       Local Board views on these regional matters will be considered by the Governing Body (or relevant committee) before making final decisions on the Emergency Budget 2020/2021.

9.       Out of the 34,915 submissions received on the regional proposals in the Emergency Budget 2020/2021, 1,277 submissions were from people living in the Waitākere Ranges Local Board area.

10.     At the time of writing this report, the feedback had not yet been fully analysed. The comprehensive agenda report will be available at the Waitākere Ranges Local Board meeting on 9 July 2020.
