New Business Units Confirmed for Rotorua District Council

Rotorua District Council will pursue the establishment of separate business units to look after tourism, events and venues, the I Site and Castlecorp.

Chief executive Geoff Williams confirmed the decision to staff today [29 May 2014] following the announcement that the Core Organisation realignment had been finalised.

“The relative strengths and weaknesses of the Council Controlled Organisation proposals have been well debated and a lot of feedback has been received,” Mr Williams said.

“Most people see the bringing together of tourism, events and venues and the I Site as logical. Likewise, others are excited by the future potential of the Rotorua Contracting proposal.
Council will still have to make the final decision on the formation of the CCOs and public consultation is still required.”

In order to progress the proposed design, RDC will form two new business units encompassing each of the proposed CCOs. This retains the associated activities directly under the RDC umbrella and allows parts of the organisation to start organising and working towards outcomes identified for the CCOs.

“Forming business units does not commit Council to the development of CCOs. These units could stay in this form if the decision was made not to progress the CCO concept,” Mr Williams said.

The proposed structure and relationship to the existing CCOs is presented in the below diagram. If adopted it is expected RDC staff who are currently ring-fenced for the CCOs would transition into the new entities in November. A projected timeline of required activities is also attached.
