It’s about getting the basics right and putting in place strong foundations for the future – that is why there is a focus on increased investment in our infrastructure and services that support all of our people and city to thrive.
We’re facing big challenges that we need to address – population growth, ageing infrastructure and assets, a housing crisis, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change. But we also need to maintain our financial sustainability.
We’re proposing a doubling of our investment in infrastructure and capital projects to $1.4B over the next decade to manage these challenges – which will be funded using a combination of rates and borrowing. For 2021/22, we’re proposing to increase rates by 5.9%. Our rates calculator will let you know what this means for you as a ratepayer.
We want to hear what you think. Are we prioritising the things that matter to you? Are we on the right track to creating a vibrant, diverse, and growing city?
Have your say here between 6 April and 6 May 2021. Then the Mayor and Councillors will consider all feedback, which will inform the final plan in June 2021.
