Adoption of 10 year plan 2021-31

Department: Corporate Policy and Finance

 

 

 

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1          This report recommends the adoption of the 10 year plan 2021-31.  It describes changes made to the plan since it was approved for consultation on 9 March 2021. 

2          Audit New Zealand (Audit NZ) is currently auditing the 10 year plan document and will provide the Council with an ‘Independent Auditor’s report’ on completion of the audit.

RECOMMENDATIONS

That the Council:

a)     Adopts the Revenue and Financing Policy for inclusion in the 10 year plan 2021-31.

b)     Approves the 10 year plan 2021-31.

c)     Receives the ‘Independent auditor’s report on the Dunedin City Council’s 2021-31 Long Term Plan’ from Audit New Zealand.

d)     Adopts the 10 year plan 2021-31

e)     Authorises the Council’s Chief Executive Officer to make any minor editorial changes resulting from the final quality checks that will occur prior to the printing of the 10 year plan 2021-31 document.

f)     Authorises the Chief Executive Officer to drawdown debt up to total debt of $340 million in the 2021/22 year.

 

BACKGROUND

3          The Local Government Act 2002 (LGA) requires all local authorities to develop a 10 year plan.  Section 93(6) of the LGA provides that the purpose of the 10 year plan is to describe the Council’s activities; describe the community outcomes for Dunedin; provide integrated decision-making and co-ordination of resources; provide a long-term focus for the decisions and activities of the Council; and provide a basis for accountability of the local authority to the community.

4          Schedule 10 of the LGA specifies the minimum information and content that must be included in the 10 year plan including groups of activities (including capital expenditure, levels of service and funding impact statements); Council controlled organisations; Financial Strategy; Infrastructure Strategy; Revenue and Financing Policy; forecast financial statements (including balancing of budget, rating information and reserve funds); and significant forecasting assumptions.

5          The 10 year plan must be adopted before the commencement of the first year to which it relates (1 July 2021), and continues in force until the close of the third consecutive year to which it relates.

6          At is meeting on 9 March 2021, Council adopted ‘The Future of Us – 10 year plan consultation document 2021-31” for consultation with the community.  The consultation document explained the Council’s proposals for the 10 year plan, based on decisions made at the Council meetings on 14-15 December 2020, 27-29 January 2021, and 23 February 2021. 

7          The community consultation and engagement period ran from 30 March to 29 April 2021.  A range of community feedback activities and events were held during this period.

8          Council considered the community feedback received and made final decisions on that feedback at its deliberations meeting on Monday 31 May to Thursday 3 June 2021.  Reports presented at the deliberations meeting included a summary of the feedback received, requests for funding and new amenities/projects, and information on five specific engagement topics, kerbside collection, Shaping Future Dunedin Transport, community housing, performing arts venue, and public toilets. 

DISCUSSION

9          The final 10 year plan document has been developed based on the content of the consultation document and the supporting documents previously approved by Council.  The document reflects the resolutions made by Council during deliberations and decision making in May 2021.

10        The following points should be noted in relation to the financial statements:

·        Rates Revenue remains unchanged,

·        Development contribution revenue has been increased to reflect the increased level of charges in the policy that was adopted at the 31 May 2021 deliberations meeting, 

·        Grants and subsidies revenue from Waka Kotahi has been reduced to reflect the reduction of subsidised consultancy spend by the Transport department.  The revenue has also been adjusted down for the maintenance and renewal funding now confirmed for 2022-2024,

·        Other revenue has been increased to reflect revised depreciation costs for Waste and Environmental (see comment below) plus income from the additional new housing units approved by Council during deliberations,

·        Other expenses have been updated to reflect additional operating savings, partially offset by funding requests approved during deliberations.  It should be noted that the expenditure savings made will come from reduced consultancy and contracted services spend and therefore not impact levels of services.  These savings will be achieved by a mixture of in-sourcing the work and prioritising the spend on the appropriate activities,

·        Personnel costs have been adjusted to reflect revised staffing structures, the planned general wage increase for 2021/22 and an anticipated level of vacancies.  Costs have also been increased to reflect the in-sourcing of the Project Management function offset by a reduction in the PMO consultancy spend,

·        Financial expenses have reduced due to the planned lower levels of debt.  Debt has been impacted by the additional development contribution revenue, increased other revenue, interest and operational expenditure savings, partially offset by the lower level of Waka Kotahi funding,

·        Depreciation has been updated following an internal review of this expenditure line and includes adjustments primarily for Three Waters (to reflect the anticipated impact of the most recent accounting valuation) and increases in Waste & Environmental related to the planned diversion facilities and new landfill.

11        Capital budgets have been updated to reflect decisions made at the deliberations meeting, along with a review of timing for the delivery of capital works.  The capital budget has increased by $10.0m over the 10 years to reflect the additional investment in new community housing.

12        The final 10 year plan will include an opinion from the Auditor General on the extent to which the Council has complied with the legislative purpose of a 10 year plan and the quality of the information and assumptions underlying the forecast information in the plan.

13        Audit NZ, on behalf of the Auditor General, has reviewed the changes made to the 10 year plan content since the audit of the consultation document and supporting documents in February / March 2021.  An update on the status of the audit opinion will be given at the meeting.

OPTIONS

14        As the adoption of the 10 year plan is a legal requirement, there are no options.

NEXT STEPS

15        Once adopted, the 10 year plan will be subject to final quality checks and graphic design, and printed for public distribution in hard copy and on the Council’s website.

16        Information on the 10 year plan and the outcome of Council decision making will be included in FYI and in the Star in mid-July 2021.

Department: Finance

 

 

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1          Following the adoption of the 10 year plan 2021-31, the Council now needs to set the rates as provided for in the Funding Impact Statement for the 2021/22 year.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS

That the Council:

a)     Sets the following rates under the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002 on rating units in the district for the financial year commencing 1 July 2021 and ending on 30 June 2022.

1          General Rate

A general rate set under section 13 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002 made on every rating unit, assessed on a differential basis as described below:

·        A rate of 0.3091 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "residential" category.

·        A rate of 0.2937 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "lifestyle" category.

·        A rate of 0.7604 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "commercial" category.

·        A rate of 0.5410 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "residential heritage bed and breakfasts" category.

·        A rate of 0.2473 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "farmland" category.

·        A rate of 0.0621 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on the “stadium: 10,000+ seat capacity” category.

2          Community Services Rate

A targeted rate for community services, set under section 16 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002, assessed on a differential basis as follows:

·        $102.00 (including GST) per separately used or inhabited part of a rating unit for all rating units in the "residential, residential heritage bed and breakfasts, lifestyle and farmland" categories.

·        $102.00 (including GST) per rating unit for all rating units in the "commercial and stadium: 10,000+ seat capacity" categories.

3          Kerbside Recycling Rate

A targeted rate for kerbside recycling, set under section 16 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002, assessed on a differential basis as follows:

·        $106.10 (including GST) per separately used or inhabited part of a rating unit for rating units in the "residential, residential heritage bed and breakfasts, lifestyle and farmland" categories.

·        $106.10 (including GST) per rating unit for rating units in the "commercial" category.

4          Drainage Rates

A targeted rate for drainage, set under section 16 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002, assessed on a differential basis as follows:

·        $618.50 (including GST) per separately used or inhabited part of a rating unit for all rating units in the "residential, residential heritage bed and breakfasts, lifestyle and farmland" categories and which are "connected" to the public sewerage system.

·        $309.25 (including GST) per separately used or inhabited part of a rating unit for all rating units in the "residential, residential heritage bed and breakfasts, lifestyle and farmland" categories and which are "serviceable" by the public sewerage system.

·        $618.50 (including GST) per rating unit for all rating units in the "commercial, residential institutions, schools and stadium: 10,000+ seat capacity" categories and which are "connected" to the public sewerage system.

·        $309.25 (including GST) per rating unit for all rating units in the "commercial, residential institutions and schools" categories and which are "serviceable" by the public sewerage system.

·        $102.25 (including GST) per rating unit for all rating units in the "church" category and which are "connected" to the public sewerage system.

Rating units which are not "connected" to the scheme and which are not "serviceable" will not be liable for this rate.  Drainage is a combined targeted rate for sewage disposal and stormwater.  Sewage disposal makes up 78% of the drainage rate, and stormwater makes up 22%.  Non-rateable land will not be liable for the stormwater component of the drainage targeted rate.  Rates demands for the drainage targeted rate for non-rateable land will therefore be charged at 78%.

5          Commercial Drainage Rates – Capital Value

A targeted rate for drainage, set under section 16 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002, assessed on a differential basis as follows:

·        A rate of 0.2878 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "commercial and residential institution" category and which are "connected" to the public sewerage system.

·        A rate of 0.1439 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "commercial" category and which are "serviceable" by the public sewerage system.

·        A rate of 0.2159 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "school" category and which are "connected" to the public sewerage system.

·        A rate of 0.1079 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "school" category and which are "serviceable" by the public sewerage system.

·        A rate of 0.0233 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on the “stadium: 10,000+ seat capacity” category.

This rate shall not apply to properties in Karitane, Middlemarch, Seacliff, Waikouaiti and Warrington.  This rate shall not apply to churches.  Drainage is a combined targeted rate for sewage disposal and stormwater.  Sewage disposal makes up 78% of the drainage rate, and stormwater makes up 22%.  Non-rateable land will not be liable for the stormwater component of the drainage targeted rate.  Rates demands for the drainage targeted rate for non-rateable land will therefore be charged at 78%.

6          Water Rates

A targeted rate for water supply, set under section 16 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002, assessed on a differential basis as follows:

·        $469.00 (including GST) per separately used or inhabited part of any "connected" rating unit which receives an ordinary supply of water within the meaning of the Dunedin City Bylaws excepting properties in Karitane, Merton, Rocklands/Pukerangi, Seacliff, Waitati, Warrington, East Taieri, West Taieri and North Taieri.

·        $234.50 (including GST) per separately used or inhabited part of any "serviceable" rating unit to which connection is available to receive an ordinary supply of water within the meaning of the Dunedin City Bylaws excepting properties in Karitane, Merton, Rocklands/Pukerangi, Seacliff, Waitati, Warrington, East Taieri, West Taieri and North Taieri.

3          Differentials Based on Provision or Availability of Service

The Council uses this matter to differentiate the water rates.

The differential categories based on provision or availability of service are:

·        Connected – any rating unit that is supplied by the water supply system.

·        Serviceable – any rating unit that is not supplied but is capable of being supplied by the water supply system (being a rating unit situated within 100 metres of the nearest water supply).

Minimum Rates

c)     Approves that where the total amount of rates payable in respect of any rating unit is less than $5.00 including GST, the rates payable in respect of the rating unit shall be such amount as the Council determines but not exceeding $5.00 including GST.

Low Value Rating Units

d)     Approves that rating units with a capital value of $6,000 or less will only be charged the general rate.

 

Land Use Codes

e)     Approves that the land use codes attached to this report are adopted as the Council's land use codes for the purpose of the rating method.

Separately Used or Inhabited Part of a Rating Unit

f)     Adopts the following definition of a separately used or inhabited part of a rating unit:

"A separately used or inhabited part of a rating unit includes any portion inhabited or used by the owner/a person other than the owner, and who has the right to use or inhabit that portion by virtue of a tenancy, lease, licence, or other agreement.

This definition includes separately used parts, whether or not actually occupied at any particular time, which are provided by the owner for rental (or other form of occupation) on an occasional or long term basis by someone other than the owner.

For the purpose of this definition, vacant land and vacant premises offered or intended for use or habitation by a person other than the owner and usually used as such are defined as 'used'.

For the avoidance of doubt, a rating unit that has a single use or occupation is treated as having one separately used or inhabited part."

Lump Sum Contributions

g)     Approves that no lump sum contributions will be sought for any targeted rate.

Rating by Instalments

h)     Approves the following schedule of rates to be collected by the Council, payable by four instalments.

Penalties

j)     Resolves to charge the following penalties on unpaid rates:

1          A charge of 10% of the unpaid rates instalment will be added to the amount of any instalment remaining unpaid the day after the instalment due date set out above.

2          Where a ratepayer has not paid the first instalment by the due date of that instalment, and has paid the total rates and charges in respect of the rating unit for the 2021/22 rating year by the due date of the second instalment, the 10% additional charge for the first instalment shall be remitted.

3          For amounts levied in any previous financial year and which remain unpaid on 1 October 2021, 10% of that sum shall be charged, including additional charges (if any).

4          For amounts levied in any previous financial year and which remain unpaid on 1 April 2022, 10% of that sum shall be charged, including additional charges (if any).

Assessing and Recovering Rates

k)     Approves that the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Rates and Revenue Team Leader be authorised to take all necessary steps to assess and recover the above rates.

 

BACKGROUND

2          The rating method for the 2021/22 year formed part of the supporting documentation made available during the community engagement period of the 10 year plan 2021-31.

DISCUSSION

3          The rating method for the 2021/22 year incorporates the following changes:

·        An increase in the community services targeted rate from $100.00 to $102.00 for the 2021/22 year.

·        The differentiated stadium: 10,000+ capacity rates have been increased for the 2021/22 year by the June 2020 Local Government Cost Index of 2.0%.

Limit on "Fixed" Charging

4          Section 21 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002 includes a limit on certain rates.  In any one year, the Council may not collect more than 30% of its total rates revenue by way of:

·        Any uniform annual general charge.

·        Any targeted rate that is calculated as a fixed amount per rating unit or separately used or inhabited part of a rating unit (and which is not used solely for water supply or sewage disposal).

5          The Council does not use a uniform annual general charge.  The relevant targeted rates for the 2021/22 year are the kerbside recycling rate, the community services rate and the drainage fixed charge.  These rates equate to 21% of total rates revenue.

OPTIONS

6          The option provided is to set rates in accordance with the Local Government Act 2002 and the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002 in order to provide rates funding in the 2021/22 year in accordance with the 2021/22 budget.

NEXT STEPS

7          The Council can now set and assess the rates described in its Funding Impact Statement.

Event Road Closures

Department: Transport and Legal

a)         City activation: Fiji vs All Blacks International Test Match: 10 July 2021.

b)        Graduation parades: 23 July and 21 August 2021.

2          This report recommends temporarily closure of the roads concerned using the provisions of the Local Government Act 1974, to enable the events to proceed.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Lower Stuart Street, from the Octagon to Moray Place, closed from 7:00am Saturday, 10 July to 5:00am Sunday, 11 July.

George Street, from Bath Street to the Octagon (southbound only), closed from 7:00am Saturday, 10 July to 5:00am Sunday, 11 July.

The central carriageway of the Octagon, closed from 3:00pm to 7:00pm on Saturday, 10 July.

 

BACKGROUND

3          Events and festivals contribute to the vibrancy and uniqueness of Dunedin; creating economic opportunities for the city and reflecting and enhancing social, recreational, environmental and cultural well-being. The contribution events make to the city’s vision of being one of the world’s great small cities is reflected in strategies and plans including the Social Well-being Strategy, the Economic Development Strategy, Ara Toi Ōtepoti, Parks and Recreation Strategy, and the Festival and Events Plan 2018-2023. 

4          The area proposed to be used for these events is legal road and can therefore be temporarily closed to normal traffic if the statutory temporary road closure procedures are followed.

5          There is a clearly defined process for closing roads in the Local Government Act 1974 ("LGA 1974"). Where the proposed temporary road stopping relates to public functions, the decision to close a road cannot be delegated to Council staff; a resolution of Council is required.

6          Section 319 of the LGA 1974 gives Council the power to stop or close any road or part of a road in the manner and upon the conditions set out in section 342 and Schedule 10 of the LGA 1974.

7          Under clause 11(e) of Schedule 10 of the LGA 1974, there are conditions which are required to be met. A copy of Schedule 10 of the LGA 1974 is attached.  These conditions include the following:

a)         Consultation with Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and the Police.

b)        Being satisfied that traffic is not likely to be unreasonably impeded.

c)         When closing under Schedule 10 section 11(e), the road cannot be closed more than 31 days in the aggregate in any one year.

d)        That public notice must be given of the intention to consider closing any road or part of a road, and notice given of the decision to close the road.

DISCUSSION

 

Consultation and Notification:

8          Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and the NZ Police have been consulted and neither have any objection to the proposed road closures.

9          The proposed temporary road closures were advertised in the Otago Daily Times on 5 June 2021, this notice is attached to the report.  Council is also required to give public notice of its decision. This notice will be published after the Council meeting prior to the events.

10        The event organiser for the city activation in the Octagon on 10 July (Fiji vs All Blacks International Test) notified affected property owners and/or occupiers within the area concerned of the proposed road closures. Vehicular access to properties will be restricted during the periods of closures.

11        A two-week period for feedback was provided.  The event organiser received one query relating to access to Bath Street, which will remain available to those businesses during the city activation event.  A request was made by some Octagon businesses to extend the hours of closure to enable them to extend their licenced premises during this time.  This request was able to be accommodated by the event organiser. 

Traffic Impacts

12        Closure of the central and lower carriageway of The Octagon for events has been carried out previously for similar events, and traffic was not unreasonably impeded.  There are detours available very near the closed roads.  Being a public function, pedestrian access will remain available.  Emergency services will have immediate access made available if required.  There is no impact to public transport. 

13        Graduation parades have been satisfactorily held for many years without causing unreasonable delays to the travelling public. The parade operates as a ‘rolling closure’ within the window of time specified, and generally the closure for the actual parade is about 10 minutes. The process has been refined over the years with traffic management providers set up to arrange remote control of traffic signals to optimise road network efficiency and to reduce the amount of traffic management devices (road cones and signs). This reduces the visual impact, whilst ensuring the event complies with the code of practice for temporary traffic management. Footpath access will remain available for pedestrians.  Emergency service will have immediate access made available if required.  Public transport services will be managed through the temporary traffic management process.

14        The temporary traffic management plan process will ensure that other issues are addressed such as temporary relocation of certain parking (e.g. taxi, mobility and AVO).

15        Under section 11(e) of Schedule 10, LGA 1974, the road cannot be closed for more than an aggregate of 31 days in any one year. The 31-day limit will not be exceeded by the approval of the proposed temporary road closures. 

OPTIONS

16        It should be noted that recommendations in this report cannot be amended without first carrying out further consultation with affected parties, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, NZ Police, and verifying that traffic impacts are acceptable.

Option One – Recommended Option

 

17        That the Council closes the sections of roads as detailed below;

Graduation parade: starting 12:00pm Friday, 23 July 2021.

Great King Street, between Frederick and Albany Streets, closed from 10:00am to 1:00pm.

Frederick Street, between Great King and George Streets, closed from 11:45am to 12:45pm.

George Street, between Frederick Street and the Octagon, closed from 11:45am to 12:45pm.

Moray Place, between George and Filleul Streets, closed from 11:45am to 12:45pm.

Moray Place, between Upper Stuart and Filleul Streets, closed from 12:00pm to 12:20pm.

Graduation parade: starting 11:30am Saturday, 21 August 2021.

Great King Street, between Frederick and Albany Streets, closed from 10:00am to 1:00pm.

Frederick Street, between Great King and George Streets, closed from 11:15am to 12:15pm.

George Street, between Frederick Street and the Octagon, closed from 11:15am to 12:15pm.

Moray Place, between George and Filleul Streets, closed from 11:15am to 12:15pm.

Moray Place, between Upper Stuart and Filleul Streets, will be closed from 11:30am until 11:50am.

City activation: Fiji v All Blacks International Test Match

The Lower Octagon, from George to Princes Streets, closed from 7:00am Saturday, 10 July to 5:00am Sunday, 11 July.

Lower Stuart Street, from the Octagon to Moray Place, closed from 7:00am Saturday, 10 July to 5:00am Sunday, 11 July.

George Street, from Bath Street to the Octagon (southbound only), closed from 7:00am Saturday, 10 July to 5:00am Sunday, 11 July.

The central carriageway of the Octagon, closed from 3:00pm to 7:00pm on Saturday, 10 July.

Advantages

·        The road will be able to be closed and the events will be able to proceed.

·        Closure will enable the benefits (economic, social, cultural) associated with events being held in Dunedin.

Disadvantages

·        There will be temporary loss of access through the closed area.  However, there are detours available nearby, and safety can be assured through the use of temporary traffic management.

Option Two – Status Quo

18        That the Council decides not to close the roads in question.

Advantages

·        There would be no detour required for travelling public, and the road would be able to be used as normal.

Disadvantages

·        The events would not be able to go ahead and the benefits of the events would be lost.

NEXT STEPS

19        Should the resolution be made to temporarily close the road, Council staff will proceed to accept the temporary traffic management plan and notify the public of the closures.

LGNZ Annual General Meeting Remits

Department: Civic

 

 

 

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1          The Local Government New Zealand (LGNZ) 2021 Annual General Meeting (AGM) is to be held on Saturday 17 July 2021 in Blenheim. 

2          At that meeting, consideration will be given to seven remits that have been submitted by local authorities, that have received either formal support from councils, or support from at least one zone or sector group meeting prior to being submitted, and have been screened through the LGNZ Remits Screening Policy.  The DCC delegate will vote on DCC’s behalf on each. 

3          The purpose of this report is to present the remits that are going to the LGNZ AGM. It asks that Council give consideration as to whether it wishes to give pre-AGM direction to the voting delegate about DCC’s support or otherwise of any of these remits and proposed rule change. 

4          As this is an administrative report there is no summary of considerations.

RECOMMENDATIONS

That the Council:

a)     Decides whether Council wishes to determine DCC’s voting position for the remits, for action by the delegate attending the Annual General Meeting.

 

BACKGROUND

5          The AGM is held immediately following the LGNZ conference.  LGNZ has a Remits Screening Policy which determines which remits submitted by local authorities will be considered at the LGNZ AGM.  This year, seven remits have been accepted for consideration.  Attachment A provides the details of each of those remits.

6          An additional four remits were referred to the National Council for action as they are primarily technical in nature.  One remit was declined as it was previously debated and endorsed in 2020.

7          Mayor Hawkins will attend the AGM on behalf of Council as the Council’s voting delegate.  Council is only entitled to one voting delegate who would exercise the Council’s voting rights and as the Council’s senior office holder the Mayor is the most appropriate delegate to attend.  

DISCUSSION

8          The practice has been for the Council to decide whether or not it wishes to determine the Council’s voting position for action by the delegate attending the meeting.

9          The DCC delegate attending the LGNZ AGM will have the opportunity to vote on the remits.  So that the delegate can represent the position of Council, consideration needs to be given to the remits, and a decision made on whether council supports the remits proposed.  Council may decide that it does not have a position on a remit, and that the delegate may make a decision at the meeting following discussion on the particular matter.   It is important to note that councils speak to their remits, so delegates at the AGM may be in a more informed voting position than councillors are prior to the AGM.

10        A summary of each of the remits to be considered at the LGNZ AGM is presented below.  Given the short timeframe staff have not had an opportunity to provide advice on the remits.  An update will be provided at the meeting if there is anything that aligns with the strategic framework.

Remit 1: Tree Protection

That LGNZ:

·    Advocate that the provisions that were added to the RMA, that restricted tree protection, be repealed urgently and that this change be carried through into new resource management legislation, thereby restoring the right to councils to adopt and enforce locally appropriate policies to protect trees in their district.

·    Advocate to use the current RMA reform process to ensure these changes are carried through into new legislation. 

Proposed by: Auckland Council

Supported by: Auckland Zone

 

Remit 2: Rating Value of Forestry Land

That LGNZ:

·    Request the Valuer General amend the relevant legislation to allow for local government to address the growing disparities between the rating valuation of forestry land and other land uses.

Proposed by: Palmerston North City Council  

Supported by: Zone 3.

 

Remit 6: WINZ Accommodation Supplement

That LGNZ works with the government to

 

  Conduct an urgent review of the Work and Income NZ (WINZ) Accommodation Supplement (AS) system zones in partnership with territorial authorities

Schedule a two-yearly review of the WINZ AS system zones in partnership with territorial authorities ongoing. 

 

Proposed by: Queenstown Lakes District Council  

Supported by: Hamilton City Council, Nelson City Council, Porirua City Council, Southland District Council, Clutha District Council and Central Otago District Council.l

That LGNZ works with the Government to obtain legal protection/indemnity from the Crown in favour of all Councils, and/or to implement a warranty scheme, for any civil liability claim, brought against a Council with regards to building consent functions carried out by Consentium (a division of Kainga Ora), as any such costs should not be borne by ratepayers.

 

Proposed by: Waikato District Council l

Supported by: Upper Hutt City Council, Hauraki District Council, Waipa District Council, Otorohanga District Council, Thames-Coromandel District Council and Hamilton City Council.

Option One – Council gives direction to voting delegate

Advantages

·    The voting delegate is aware of the preference of Council.

Disadvantages

·    Council gives direction without being fully informed of the discussion that will take place at the AGM about the remits.

Option Two – decisions on the voting position on the remits remains with voting delegate (the Mayor)

Advantages

NEXT STEPS

12        The DCC delegate at the LGNZ AGM will vote on the remits in accordance with the decisions made.

Proposed Parking Restriction Changes - June 2021

Department: Transport

 

 

 

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1          At its meeting on 22 April 2021, the Regulatory Subcommittee considered a range of proposed changes and clarifications to current parking restrictions, and corrections to the GIS database.

2          This report seeks Council approval of the recommendations made by the Regulatory Subcommittee at its meeting on 22 April 2021. 

RECOMMENDATIONS

That the Council:

a)     Considers the recommendations of the Regulatory Subcommittee on the proposed changes to parking and traffic restrictions.

b)     Approves the recommended changes to the parking controls that are shown in the April 2021 update of the Dunedin City Council’s traffic and parking controls database, https://tinyurl.com/ParkingApril2021.

c)     Notes that all parking controls previously approved by Council remain unchanged.

 

 

BACKGROUND

3          Traffic and parking restrictions are made under the Traffic and Parking Bylaw and contribute to the objectives of the Dunedin Integrated Transport Strategy 2013 by supporting the achievement of a safe, efficient, and accessible transport network.

4          Council maintains a GIS map database of traffic and parking restrictions (the database) which reflects all on-street parking restrictions that are implemented with markings and/or signs.

5          The Regulatory Subcommittee has the delegation to make recommendations to Council on existing bylaws and their implementation and proposed changes to traffic and parking restrictions.

DISCUSSION

6          The Council receives a range of unsolicited requests from individuals and businesses to change parking restrictions. When considering these requests, staff assess a range of factors including safety concerns, user needs, the road width, topography, traffic flow, neighbouring on-street parking spaces, visibility concerns and crash statistics. A proposed change supported by staff will include consultation with residents, businesses and property owners, unless the change is being made to address an identified safety concern.

7          On 22 April 2021, the Regulatory Subcommittee considered and supported proposed changes and clarifications (including database corrections) to parking controls.

8          Recommended changes, clarifications and corrections to parking restrictions are shown in the database at https://tinyurl.com/ParkingApril2021 and detailed in Attachments A (TPC 23 - Minor Changes), E (TPC 24-Clarifications and corrections) and F (TPC 25 - Corrections off street carparks).  The GIS layer includes a bookmark feature which links the numbered cases presented in the tables of Attachments A, E and F, to their specific location on the GIS layer.

9          The proposed changes will improve the safety, efficiency and access of the transport network through enabling property access by prohibiting obstructive parking, making existing parking controls clearer, providing for access to new driveways, providing an improved and enforceable framework of parking restrictions, providing appropriate length of parking stay according to the surrounding land uses and increasing visibility at intersections.

10        The recommended minor parking restriction changes detailed in Attachment A (TPC 23 - Minor Changes) include:

 

a)         Where appropriate, engagement has been carried out with affected parties when parking changes to improve safety, efficiency or access were proposed, and

1          

b)        Where appropriate, engagement has been carried out with the Otago Regional Council (ORC) when changes to improve the operation of the bus network were proposed.

 

11        A summary of consultation with affected parties, including owners, residents and businesses in the area is shown in Attachment B (Consultation Table) and Attachment C (Consultation and Feedback Summary). The consultation documents have been updated since the Regulatory Subcommittee meeting to include late feedback received in support of the proposed changes to Cosy Dell Road.

             Bus Network

·                 

12        ORC as the bus service provider, has proposed changes and/or improvements to several bus stop locations. These are detailed in the table in Attachment A (TPC-23 Minor Changes). ORC has consulted on the new locations for the bus stops. The changes proposed are part of DCC and ORC’s common strategy for improvement to the bus network.

             Cosy Dell Road

 

13        Parking restrictions are being proposed from 4 to 20 Cosy Dell Road. The road is very narrow and is not suitable for parking on both sides of the road. Earlier in the year, staff received multiple complaints from people who could not easily traverse this road, including six complaints in February 2021, and seven in March 2021. Waste collection trucks could not easily collect refuse, and essential services such as Meals on Wheels were finding it difficult to access properties on the street. St John New Zealand verbally confirmed poor parking could make it difficult for an ambulance to attend an emergency. As a result of the concerns raised, a temporary traffic management plan was put in place in late March to stop parking on one side of the street. Since the temporary measures were implemented, no complaints have been received about this stretch of Cosy Dell Road.

14        Consultation has been undertaken with residents on the street about making the parking restriction on one side of the road permanent. The results of the feedback are shown in Attachment C (Consultation and Feedback Summary). The temporary measures will be removed after Council has decided on the proposed changes for Cosy Dell Road.

Parking spaces - Losses and gains

 

15        Following the recommendation of the Regulatory Subcommittee, net losses and gains have been recalculated to better reflect the reduction of actual parking spaces (as opposed to lost meterage) on Cosy Dell Road and Prosser Street. This change was made because the spaces initially counted as parking losses are not actual losses as cars cannot safely park opposite to each other on these narrow roads. Consequently, there is a variance to the net loss of car parks presented to the Regulatory Subcommittee. It is now proposed there will be a net reduction of 1 parking space due to the proposed parking changes.

16        The description of ‘Restricted all-day’ parks in the Table TPC 23 - Minor changes (Attachment A) has been changed to ‘Unrestricted’ parks in order to make the distinction between the different types of parks clearer.

17        The table below shows the net losses and gains due to the proposed parking changes:

18        The table below shows the net losses and gains on parking changes by zone (See Attachment D - Map Zones):

George Street - Port Chalmers bus relocation

 

19        Consultation was undertaken on a proposal to move a bus stop on George Street in Port Chalmers. Staff are still considering the feedback provided and assessing options for the stop. A new potential option is being discussed with ORC, the Dunedin Tramways Union and the New Zealand Transport Agency (Waka Kotahi). The final preferred option will be discussed with the West Harbour Community Board and presented at a later Regulatory Subcommittee meeting.

Clarifications and corrections

 

20        Clarification of parking restrictions and corrections to the database are detailed in Attachment E (TPC 24-Clarifications and corrections) and Attachment F (TPC 25-Corrections - Off street carparks). They do not change current parking restrictions, but include:

 

a)     Changes to markings or signs intended to clarify parking controls which are already in place. Changes may make existing markings or signs clearer or reinforce existing rules (for example installation of no-stopping lines to clarify that no vehicles may stop within one metre of a driveway or within six metres of a junction under the Land Transport (Road User) Rules 2004). These clarifications are considered necessary for access or safety reasons and are an exception to Council’s general approach not to mark anything that is currently enforceable under existing rules.

 

b)    Corrections to the database that have been made to accurately reflect the parking restrictions which are on the ground.

Corrections - Off-street carparks

·                 

21        In June 2020, Council resolved to include DCC paid off-street carparking spaces in the database. Three off-street restricted and unpaid carpark locations were not included at that time. This report recommends that they are included. These are:

P34L2#yIS1

a)         16 Church Street, Mosgiel

 

 

 

P38#yIS1

b)        10 Cameron Street, Dunedin

2          
P40#yIS1

c)         37, 37A, 39, 41, 43 and 43A Rankeilor Street, Dunedin

OPTIONS

Option One – Recommended Option

22        Approve the proposed changes to the traffic and parking controls database.

Advantages

·        Improves safety, efficiency and access on the transport network.

·        Improves public transport infrastructure by providing bus stops to support bus services and, enables buses to safely enter and exit bus stops.

·        Contributes to achieving an integrated, affordable responsive, effective and safe transport network.

Disadvantages

·        There are no identified disadvantages.

Option Two – Status Quo

23        Retain the existing parking restrictions without amendment.

Advantages

·        There are no identified disadvantages.

 

Disadvantages

·        Does not improve efficiency and access to the transport network.

·        Does not improve safety or reduce conflict points.

·        Does not contribute to the Integrated Transport Strategy goals.

NEXT STEPS

24        If Council approves the recommended changes to parking restrictions, these will be implemented through appropriate signs and road markings and restrictions will be enforced under the Traffic and Parking Bylaw.

Proposed Amendments to DCC Grants Subcommittee Delegations

Department: Civic

 

 

 

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1          This report seeks to correct an administrative error by amending the delegations for the Council’s Grants Subcommittee (the Subcommittee) to enable the appointed mana whenua representative to have the same voting rights as other members. 

2          When the mana whenua representative was appointed the delegations were not amended to reflect the appointment.

3          As this is an administrative report there are no options or summary of considerations. 

RECOMMENDATIONS

That the Council:

a)     Amends the delegations for the Grants Subcommittee to enable the mana whenua representative to consider and determine grant applications alongside other members.

 

BACKGROUND

4          The Subcommittee has had an appointed mana whenua representative for at least six years.

5          The mana whenua representative, alongside other appointed community representatives, and up to five Councillors considers and makes decisions on a number of grants.  

6          The current delegations for the Subcommittee do not permit the appointed mana whenua representative to make decisions on the grant applications.  This is an administrative error and was never the intention.

7          This report seeks to amend the error by updating the delegations.

DISCUSSION

8          The attachment shows the proposed changes to the Grants Subcommittee delegations.

 

OPTIONS

 

9          As this is an administrative error there are no options.

NEXT STEPS

10        If the Council approves the recommendation, the Grants Subcommittee delegations as set out on pages 35 – 37 of the Committee Structure and Delegations Manual will be updated, and the mana whenua representative advised of the change.

11        The Committee Structure and Delegations Manual will be reissued to reflect the change.
