Greater Wellington Regional Council Pre-Election Report

2 August 2013

Greater Wellington Regional Council releases Pre-Election Report

Greater Wellington Regional Council has published its Pre-Election Report ahead of this year’s local government elections.

The report is a requirement of the Local Government Act 2002, which was amended in 2010 and requires the Chief Executive to prepare a Pre-Election Report to provide information for the community and prospective election candidates and enable a better informed election debate.

Wellington Regional Council CE David Benham says the Pre-Election Report brings together information previously published in the council’s Long Term Plan, Annual Plan and Annual Reports as well as updated financial figures based on the latest budgeting information.

It provides a set of financial statements that cover the last three years and projections for the next three years to give an insight into council’s long term strategies.

“The Pre-Election report also includes a summary of the major projects either underway or proposed to be undertaken by Greater Wellington Regional Council over the next three years. These highlight the on-going and significant role the council plays in planning and implementing essential regional infrastructure.

“The Regional Council believes it is crucial to continue to invest in our regional infrastructure to improve the standard of our assets and maintain them to an appropriate level. We have developed long-term strategies to guide our investment in regional infrastructure in a way that will deliver enduring outcomes for the Wellington region, and in particular the regional economy.

In 2023, the government is clutching its pearls because senior Labour MP Damien O’Connor has dared suggest that Gaza’s civilian population - already living under apartheid and subjected to sixteen years of an illegal embargo, and now being herded together and slaughtered indiscriminately amid the destruction of their homes, schools, mosques, and hospitals - are also victims of what amounts to genocide.

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal.
