Draft Annual Plan out for consultation

Draft Annual Plan out for consultation


The draft annual plan sets Auckland Council’s proposed budget for the next financial year (1 July 2014 to 30 June 2015) and our planned investments, services and activities to improve Auckland’s liveability and support growth. The Annual Plan also incorporates the 21 local board agreements. The draft Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board Agreement (attached) proposes a programme of activity that builds on the momentum of the past three years. We will continue to invest in activities that deliver on our priorities of looking after our environment (with a focus on clean waterways and harbours), delivering easy, connected and safe public transport, making sure our community spaces work for us, ensuring residents have good-quality and affordable housing, and supporting thriving businesses and employment for our people.

To read more about what is planned across the council and the local board area for 2014/2015, the consultation topics and how you can make a submission please click here: http://www.annualplan.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/
Submissions for the Annual Plan close on Monday, 24 February 2014 at 4pm.

Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan
The Auckland Unitary Plan will ensure that Auckland can meet its economic and housing growth needs and help its centres meet their real potential, while protecting and enhancing what already makes the region great. For more on the role of the unitary plan in supporting economic growth, download the report, shaping a business-friendly city (PDF 4MB).

The unitary plan will determine:
• what can be built and where
• how to create a higher quality and more compact Auckland
• how to provide for rural activities
• how to maintain the marine environment.
It replaces the existing Regional Policy Statement and 13 existing district and regional plans. This is the next step in bringing Auckland together and delivering the vision of the Auckland Plan.

Urgent Bill Planned:
MP Pay Rises To Match Public Service

Prime Minister John Key today announced an overhaul of the Remuneration Authority Act, tying MP salaries to those of the wider public sector, which will be passed under urgency.

Mr Key says the decision was made after the Remuneration Authority’s latest determination which saw the total remuneration received by MPs increased by about 3.5 per cent...

The new legislation will be backdated to 1 July 2014, meaning the pay increase outlined in the latest determination will not be awarded. More>>
