City Council confirms its 2005/06 Annual Plan

Christchurch City Council confirms its 2005/06 Annual Plan

Christchurch City Council has today (Thursday, 30 June) finalised its Annual Plan for the 2005/06 year.

The plan, for the 12 months from 1 July, follows closely the commitments made in last year's 2004-14 Long-Term Council Community Plan. To maintain the levels of service set out in that long-term plan, the 2005/06 Plan requires an increase in the total rates take of 3.49 per cent.

It means an average city residence, worth a little under $260,000, will attract a rates bill of $1080 - about $21 a week.

The draft document was made available for public comment from 11 April until 13 May. The Council received nearly 200 submissions and held public meetings earlier this month to consider these and to discuss the draft plan.

At this morning's meeting of the City Council, Mayor Garry Moore said many of the topics raised by submitters would be considered by the Council as part of the work it has planned over coming months to review and produce a new long-term community plan.

The report considered by City Council at today's meeting is online at www.ccc.govt.nz/council/proceedings/2005/june/cnclcover30th/finalcccap.pdf

Public submissions on the draft of the annual plan are also online, at www.ccc.govt.nz/Ltccp/AnnualPlan/Draft/APSubmissions/

The 2004-14 Long Term Council Community Plan is on the web at www.ccc.govt.nz/Ltccp/
