Moved (Mayor Jules Radich/Cr Cherry Lucas):

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%.

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."

DCC submission on the Draft Tourism Environment Action Plan 2023

Department: Enterprise Dunedin

 

 

 

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1          This report seeks Council approval for a Dunedin City Council (DCC) submission (Attachment A) on the Draft Tourism Environment Action Plan (The Plan).

2          The DCC have been granted an extension to submit on The Plan until 27 July 2023.

RECOMMENDATIONS

That the Council:

a)         Approves the draft submission, with any amendments, to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment on the Draft Tourism Environment Action Plan

b)        Authorises the Chief Executive to make any minor editorial changes to the submission if required.

BACKGROUND

3          The Plan is part of a broader industry transformation plan for tourism in New Zealand. The industry transformation plan aims to transform tourism in Aotearoa New Zealand to a regenerative model – one that gives back more than it takes from the environment, people and communities.

4          The Plan was created in partnership with the tourism industry, unions, government, Māori and environmental organisations through the Tourism Environment Leadership Group between October 2022 and June 2023.

5          The Plan explores six tirohanga hou (new outlooks) for ensuring the tourism industry protects and restores the climate and environment. These tirohanga hou are underpinned by 22 initiatives to achieve the outcomes sought. The tirohanga hou are:

·        Tourism journeys are decarbonised

·        Tourism champions biodiversity

·        Visitor management is optimised for te taiao (the natural world)

·        Accelerated technology uptake and innovation enable regeneration

·        Tourism businesses are incentivised and enabled for sustainability and regeneration

·        The tourism system and its levers are optimised and resourced to support regeneration

DISCUSSION

6          The DCC supports the draft Tourism Environment Action Plan 2023 and six tirohanga hou. The DCC is already taking actions aligned with The Plan.

7          The Plan aligns with the Ōtepoti Dunedin’s Destination Management Plan (the Destination Management Plan) which includes a commitment to world-leading environmental practices through environmental standards and guidelines and initiatives to support and improve the environment.

8          The Plan also aligns with the DCC’s target to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2030, which involves managing down emissions from transport emissions generated by international and domestic tourism, both inbound and outbound.

9          Principal comments include:

–     Support for the proposed assessment of the environmental impacts of the current mix of visitors. National guidance and insights on lower emissions markets would be helpful.

–     Encourage government investment to improve the emissions intensity of aviation fuels, including potential application of a sustainable aviation fuel mandate and particular emphasis on use of electricity for domestic flights.

–     Encourage government support for feasibility studies and investigations into the provision of shore power to marine vessels, specifically cruise ships.

–     Note government will need to support tourism businesses to decarbonise and enable sustainable and regenerative models and appropriately fund and support the draft Tourism Environment Action Plan 2023.

–     Support any initiative to increase the visibility of where and how visitors can ‘give back’ to Aotearoa New Zealand, including a potential contribution to local conservation initiatives.

–     Support for a national led tourism system that harnessed emerging technology within the tourism sector.

OPTIONS

Option One – Recommended Option

 

10        Approve, with any agreed amendments, the submission to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment on the Draft Tourism Environment Action plan.

Advantages

·        Opportunity to provide feedback on the Draft Tourism Environment Action Plan.

Disadvantages

·        There are no identified disadvantages.

Option Two – Status Quo

11        Do not approve the submission to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment on the Draft Tourism Environment Action Plan.

Advantages

·        No identified advantages

Disadvantages

·        Missed opportunity to provide feedback on the Draft Tourism Environment Action Plan.

NEXT STEPS

12        If the submission is approved DCC staff will submit it, with any amendments to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.

LGNZ Annual General Meeting Remits

Department: Civic

 

 

 

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1          The Local Government New Zealand (LGNZ) 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM) is to be held on Wednesday 26 July 2023, in Christchurch.  

2          At that meeting, consideration will be given to 11 remits that have been submitted by local authorities.  The remits 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 decide how Council wishes to determine which (if any) of the remits it wishes to support. 

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

RECOMMENDATIONS

That the Council:

a)     Delegates to the voting delegate (the Mayor) the authority to determine the DCC’s voting position for the remits submitted to the LGNZ AGM.

 

BACKGROUND

5          This year, 11 remits have been accepted for consideration at the LGNZ AGM.  Attachment A provides the details of each of those remits.

6          Mayor Radich, Cr Barker and Cr Gilbert will attend the AGM on behalf of Council.  The Mayor will be the voting delegate on behalf of the Council.

DISCUSSION

7          The DCC voting delegate attending the LGNZ AGM will have the opportunity to vote on the remits.  Council needs to determine how it wishes to vote on each remit.

8          Previously, the Mayor as the voting delegate has decided how they will exercise the vote.

9          Councils speak briefly 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.  Staff have included brief comments where appropriate. 

11        Remits already endorsed by Council are listed first, followed by remits that support current DCC policy positions and finally remits where there is no current DCC view.

REMITS ALREADY ENDORSED

Remit 1 – Allocation of risk and liability in the building sector

That LGNZ:

·   Engage directly with the Minister for building and Construction to advocate for a change to the current joint and several liability framework, including examination of the MBIE policy position statement for Risk, Liability and Insurance in the Building Sector. 

·   Make the case for alternatives and changes to joint and several liability through updating policy advice and engaging with industry groups.

Proposed by:           Queenstown-Lakes District Council

Supported by:         LGNZ Metro Sector (of which the Council is a member)

Remit 3 – Roading /Transport Maintenance Funding

That LGNZ:

·   Publicly lobby all political parties to increase Crown funding for state highway and local road maintenance budgets.

·   Consider and pursue other avenues including the Office of the Auditor-General to seek resolution of the issues facing the country in relation to the systemic rundown of our national roading infrastructure.

Proposed by:           New Plymouth Council

Supported by:         This remit is supported by 21 Councils including the Council.

Staff comment:      This has already been endorsed by Council.  

REMITS THAT SUPPORT CURRENT DCC POLICY POSITIONS OR OPERATIONAL PRACTICES

Remit 2 – Rates Rebate

That LGNZ advocate to Central Government to:

·   Raise the income threshold for rates rebate eligibility to enable more low and fixed income property owners access to the rebate

·   Adjust the rebate amount in line with inflation and cost of living

·   Investigate options to make rates rebates more accessible for residents by implementing an income data sharing process similar to that of Horowhenua District Council and Levin MSD office.  This will enable Councils to obtain benefit income on behalf of the ratepayer and make it easier to apply for the rates rebate

·   Investigate options for data sharing between Councils, Internal Affairs and Ministry of Social Development to proactively identify households that qualify for a rates rebate rather than waiting for people to apply.

Proposed by:           Horowhenua District Council

Supported by:         LGNZ Zone 3

Staff comment:      Raising the income threshold for the rebate and annual inflation adjustment aligns with the current DCC approach to rates rebates.

Staff recommend supporting this remit.

Staff note the administrative component to processing rates rebates is a cost to TAs that receives no government/external funding.  While the data sharing would be useful, it would place further demands on Council staff in relation to the processing of these rebates. 

An alternative may be that the data sharing involves Councils providing rating information to the relevant government body who would process the rebate.

Remit 4 – Local election accessibility

That LGNZ:

·   Ensure Local Government Elections are fully accessible by advocating to central government to make local government candidates eligible for the Election Access Fund.

Proposed by:           Whangarei District Council

Supported by:         LGNZ Zone 1

Staff comment:      DCC has committed to making elections accessible to all candidates.  This remit aligns with that position.  Staff recommend supporting this remit.

Remit 5 – Ability for co-chairs at formal meetings

That LGNZ:

·   Explores and promotes options that enable councils to make greater use of co-chair arrangements for standing committees, joint committees and subcommittees.

Proposed by:           Northland Regional Council

Supported by:         LGNZ Zone 1

Staff comment:       Neither the Local Government Act nor Standing Orders currently provide for co-chairs at committee meetings.  Standing Orders are currently being reviewed and having this flexibility could be useful. Staff recommend supporting this remit.

Remit 6 – Parking infringement penalties

That LGNZ:

·   Advocate to central government to enable councils to determine penalties for parking infringements

Proposed by:           Whangarei District Council

Supported by:         LGNZ Zone 1

Staff comment:       Waka Kotahi are considering a number of transport related regulatory changes including updates to parking infringement penalties and towing charges. Staff recommend supporting this remit.

Remit 7 – Rural and regional public transport

That LGNZ:

·   Acknowledges the Government stated support for a major uplift in all urban bus networks nationwide under New Zealand’s first emission reduction plan.

·   Calls on the Government and opposition parties to commit to increasing investment in public transport for rural and regional communities to support access to essential services and amenities, vibrant rural communities and just transition to a low emission transport system.

Proposed by:           Waikato Regional Council

Supported by:         Zone 2 Meeting May 2023. Remit discussed and received unanimous support

Staff comment:       This aligns with Council strategy – public transport between towns and to rural communities is limited.  Staff recommend supporting this remit.

Remit 11 – Audit NZ Fees

That LGNZ calls on central government to take action to reduce council audit fees by:

·   Revisiting the scope and requirements of reporting and auditing on councils

·   Conducting a review on the practice of audit in councils and work on best practice guidance to streamline this process.

This review should examine whether the reporting and audit requirements of councils are consistent with the level of reporting and audit that is required of other public entities.

Proposed by:           Whanganui District Council

Supported by:         This remit is supported by five councils.

Staff comment:      The Audit and Risk Subcommittee and staff are concerned with the increases in audit fees and the scope requirements of audit.  Staff recommend supporting this remit.

REMITS WITH NO CURRENT DCC POLICY OR OPERATIONAL POSITION

Remit 8 – Establishing resolution service

That LGNZ:

·   Investigates the creation of an LGNZ independent, national process to handle complaints or concerns, ensuring fairness, protection, and accountability in local government.

·   Works with the Local Government Commission to implement findings from its September 2021 Report – Local Government Codes of Conduct.

Proposed by:           Hutt City and Young Elected Members Committee

Supported by:         This is supported by seven councils.

Staff comment:      The Council is due to review its Code of Conduct given various issues that have arisen with its application over time.  

Remit 9 – Earthquake prone buildings

That LGNZ:

·   Investigate and report to members on ways to help councils and communities that are struggling with the time frames in the Earthquake Prone Building (EPB) sections of the Building Act and council policies pertaining to Priority Thoroughfares.

Proposed by:           Manawatu District Council

Supported by:         LGNZ Zone 3

Staff comment:      We are not convinced merely extending the timeframe will guarantee seismic strengthening is completed in an extended time period.  Staff recommend not supporting this remit.

REMITS – SUPPORT PREVIOUSLY DECLINED

Remit 10 – Kiwisaver contributions for elected members

That LGNZ:

·   Ask the Government to amend the law to enable councils to make contributions to an elected members’ Kiwisaver scheme.

Staff comment:       Council declined to support this remit in its earlier iteration.

Dunedin City Holdings Limited Share Capital

Department: Executive Leadership Team

 

 

 

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1          The current DCC Group borrowing arrangements require the level of Dunedin City Holdings Limited (“DCHL”) uncalled share capital to be greater than DCC Group debt.

2          This report seeks approval to increase that uncalled capital from the current $1.200 billion to $1.600 billion.

3          This level of uncalled capital aligns with the forecast group debt as at 30 June 2026 as set out in the approved 2023/2024 Statement of Intent for Dunedin City Holdings Limited.

RECOMMENDATIONS

That the Council:

a)         Approves the required increase in share capital of Dunedin City Holdings Limited to provide $1.600 billion of uncalled capital.

b)        Authorises the Dunedin City Council to execute the required shareholder resolution(s) and associated documents to achieve the increase in share capital noted in (a).

c)         Notes that this level of uncalled capital aligns with the forecast group debt as at 30 June 2026 as set out in the approved 2023/2024 Statement of Intent for Dunedin City Holdings Limited.

 

BACKGROUND

4          The assets of Aurora Energy Limited, Dunedin City Treasury Limited (“DCTL”) and DCHL – including its uncalled share capital – are included in the DCC Group’s existing debenture agreement (which underpins all DCC Group debt).

5          This uncalled capital was last updated at the Council meeting dated 23 November 2021, with the following Council resolution.

Moved (Cr Mike Lord/Cr Doug Hall):

That the Council:

 

a)         Approves the required increase in share capital of Dunedin City Holdings Limited to provide $1.200 billion of uncalled capital.

b)        Authorises the Dunedin City Council to execute the required shareholder resolution(s) and associated documents to achieve the increase in share capital noted in (a).

c)         Notes that this level of uncalled capital aligns with the forecast group debt as at 30 June 2024 as set out in the approved 2021/2022 Statement of Intent for Dunedin City Holdings Limited.

During discussion Cr Doug Hall left the meeting at 3.13 pm.

Division

The Council voted by division:

 

For:                 Crs Sophie Barker, David Benson-Pope, Rachel Elder, Doug Hall, Marie Laufiso, Mike Lord, Jim O'Malley, Chris Staynes, Steve Walker, Andrew Whiley and Mayor Aaron Hawkins (11).

Against:         Crs Carmen Houlahan, Jules Radich and Lee Vandervis (3).

Abstained:   Nil

 

The division was declared CARRIED by 11 votes to 3

 

Motion carried (CNL/2021/001)

 

DISCUSSION

6          The 2023/2024 Dunedin City Holdings Limited Statement of Intent was approved by Council at its meeting on 27 June 2023.

Moved (Cr Sophie Barker/Cr Andrew Whiley):

That the Council:

 

a)     Agrees to the 2023/2024 Statements of Intent of Dunedin City Holdings Ltd and its subsidiary and associate companies.

Motion carried (CNL/2023/002)

7          This 2023/2024 Statement of Intent included a forecast group debt of $1.546 billion by
30 June 2026.

8          Below is an extract from the 2023/2024 DCHL Statement of Intent showing the level of group debt over the next three financial years.

9          The increase in debt is primarily driven by the planned capital expenditure programmes for:

·    Aurora Energy Limited required as part of their approved CPP, and

·    Dunedin City Council as set out on the approved 10 year plan 2021-2031.

10        The current group debt requirements are detailed in the table below, including the current group facility limits and increases requested to those limits.  It indicates the need to increase uncalled capital beyond the current $1.200 billion in order that the requested facility limits can be accommodated.

11        It is important to note that:

·        the increase to DCHL share capital does not commit DCC or Aurora to future debt levels – they simply enable the future debt to be available for the planned capital expenditure programmes; and

·        an increase to DCHL share capital does not incur any significant cost; and

·        the recommendation seeks to increase the level of DCHL uncalled share capital to
$1.600 billion which is in excess of the forecast debt.  The recommended excess of uncalled share capital over forecast debt is known as liquidity headroom; and

·        liquidity headroom is highly regarded by rating agencies and is consistent with the DCC Treasury Risk Management Policy which allows for a liquidity buffer.

OPTIONS

12        No options are provided – the increase in uncalled capital gives effect to the forecast group debt as set out in the approved 2023/2024 Statement of Intent for DCHL as approved by Council at its meeting on 27 June 2023.

NEXT STEPS

13        If approved officers will begin the process of increasing DCHL’s share capital.

14        The level of uncalled capital will be reviewed again in July 2024, including the impact of the proposed Three Water Reforms on the level of debt funding required by the DCC.
