Annual Plan progress strategic goals

Auckland City Council 's approval today of its Annual Plan for 2000/01 progresses several key strategic goals, says Mayor Chris Fletcher.

Mrs Fletcher says the plan is a responsible approach to meeting the city's present needs along with making provision for future requirements.

"The Annual Plan increases rates overall by 0.52%. It is pleasing that the overall increase has been kept to a minimum due to growth in the rating base."

As a result of changes to rates differentials between residential and non-residential properties, rates for businesses in the Central Business District will fall by 2.92%. Residential rates will increase by 1.9%, or $20.00 for the average property.

Mrs Fletcher says, the plan for the coming year shows vision and makes a start on implementing a number of priorities contained within the strategic plan.

"I am especially pleased that Council has approved $845,000 for the Tag-Out graffiti strategy to provide a 24 hour response to remove graffiti. This initiative was a key 2005 milestone in the strategic plan, early implementation shows Council's resolve to deal with the issue seriously," she said.

$4.8 million has been provided in the plan for a dedicated fund for passenger transport and an arena. Another $5 million, from a special dividend from the Airport shares, has also been allocated to transport.

"The dedicated funding for passenger transport provides a substantial basis for the large contribution that Council faces in reducing congestion.

"It is a well balanced Annual Plan which has taken into account public submissions by keeping rates down and still making progress on our strategic objectives," said the Mayor.

Ends.

Gordon Campbell: On Why Shipping Is NZ’s New Trade Problem

So Jacinda Ardern and Theresa May have signed a piece of paper promising peace in our time when it comes to our trade with Britain... Right now, a statement from Theresa May on Brexit has as much credibility as a statement by Donald Trump about North Korea’s plans for scrapping its nukes. Despite her recent crushing defeat in the Commons, May is continuing to playing chicken with Britain’s future, for personal and party advantage.
