Council receives around 2400 LTCCP submissions

Council receives around 2400 LTCCP submissions

The Council has received about 2400 public submissions to its draft Long Term Council Community Plan (LTCCP).

This is three times the number received last year, however 2000 submissions were delivered by Citizens Against Privatisation and these, among other things, supported the Council’s position to not commercialise the City’s water supply system.

The LTCCP looks 10 years ahead, outlining the City’s priorities for growth and development and how it should be paid for. The 2003/04 Annual Plan (budget) is also part of the document.

Opinions covered a wide range of topics, such as the Council’s planned move to Henderson, public transport and traffic congestion, recycling and refuse services, walkways and footpaths, development of the Harbourview Park, protection of the Waitakere Ranges and local streams and the future of the Whenuapai Airbase.

Next year, the Council is planning major expenditure on more library books ($1.05 million), a new Waitakere City library in Henderson ($2.45 million), the Munroe Rd bridge in Henderson ($1.71 million), New Lynn’s Clark St roundabout ($1.44 million), building a new civic centre (to cost between $22.4 million and $26.4 million, depending on design), new parks infrastructure (paths, drainage, toilets, etc) ($4.13 million) and new infrastructure for stormwater ($7.33 million), wastewater ($2.08 million) and water supply ($1.99 million).

This work programme would result in an average rates rise of 5.8% - or $2.61 a week.

Public hearings will take place between June 6 and 16 and deliberations from June 20. A final decision on what will be in the Plan will be made on June 30.
