Hastings District Council

Welcome to the Plan

From the Mayor and Chief Executive This Draft Annual Plan represents Year Two of the 2012-22 Long Term Plan (LTP). Our 2013/14 Annual Plan process was about ‘fine tuning’ the considerable effort that Council and the community put into the Long Term Plan.

Key issues and changes from Long Term Plan A key consideration in this budget is our response to the withdrawal of New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) funding for parts of the Council’s roading programme contained within the Long Term Plan. While this was signalled by NZTA in 2012 (and some cuts were already incorporated within Council budgets in the Long Term Plan), ongoing discussions have occurred through to September 2012 when the final funding envelope from NZTA was released.

The budget in brief is presented on the next page. Key budget pressures for 2013/14 include additional insurance costs, the provision for further earthquake assessments on public buildings and funding support for the Pettigrew Green Arena. Despite the pressures above, the Council’s work programme remains fundamentally in line with that set out in the Long Term Plan, with a focus on maintaining core assets and existing service levels along with some additional investment in amenity and community infrastructure. Recent changes to the Local Government Act 2002 have amended the purpose of local government within the Act along with other related provisions. Council has reviewed its activity in light of these changes and provided linkages with the amended Act where appropriate. We welcome your feedback on the proposed budget for the 2013/14 year.

The impacts on Council’s roading programme are outlined on pages 15-16. The economic landscape is still challenging. This is at the forefront of our planning, not only in terms of the impact on revenue and expenditure pressures on Council activities, but also on the extent of the programme put forward in this plan and the community’s ability to fund it.

Ross McLeod

Lawrence Yule

Chief Executive

Mayor

The forecast Local Government Cost Index for the financial year is 3.07%. Council have presented a budget with a proposed rate increase of 2.8% which is within this forecast and less than the rates forecast (3.8%) in the Long Term Plan. This budget is also well within the rates and debt limits contained within the Council’s Financial Strategy. These savings have been achieved while still making provision for new investment in our parks and playgrounds, further walking and cycling initiatives and allocating finance for a proposed new roading arterial which will better link the Whakatu industrial area with the expressway and the Port of Napier.

Hastings District Council

What the Long Term Plan says The Council is taking a sustainable development approach to its planning. This means taking a longer term view. The Council’s Long Term Plan maintains the general service level expectations of the community, within the affordability constraints of the community, and places some emphasis on meeting the challenges ahead (as outlined on the diagram on the previous page).

Projects on the go DISTRICT PLAN REVIEW

COMMUNITY OUTCOMES AND PURPOSE OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT

The Community Outcomes Framework on the previous page is fundamentally the same as that outlined within the Council’s Long Term Plan. It outlines the key areas of focus to meet the needs of our community both today and in the future. Due to recent amendments to the Local Government Act 2002 the Council has taken the opportunity to reformat the outcomes framework so it clearly aligns to the new purpose of local government and the related provisions within the Act. Links to the “Things Council Provides” can be found on page 25 along with the objectives for our groups of activities from page 26.

ANNUAL RATING REVENUE MOVEMENT 5.0%

Protecting the productive capacity of the Heretaunga Plains, providing diversity in housing choice, planning attractive and vibrant commercial centres and planning for growth are some of the key objectives of the Council.

CIVIC SQUARE REDEVELOPMENT

SWIMMING POOL UPGRADES

The 2012/22 Long Term Plan incorporates funding of $7m for the redevelopment of Civic Square. The total project is scoped at $8.5m with the balance of funding to be sourced from fundraising and other sources.

After extensive consultation with the community on Council’s Aquatics Strategy, the retention and investment into Council’s four existing public swimming pools along with further investigation into a new district pool was recommended and adopted by Council.

Progress to date:

$5.5m was made available to enable implementation of the strategy.

The first two financial years (2013 - 2015) are dedicated to further refinement of the development concept and fundraising prior to the actual construction and utilisation of capital funding in Years 3 - 5 of the Long Term Plan.

Progress to date:

Council are in the process of appointing a design team that will spend the next 18 months transitioning the conceptual plans to a set of final design plans. In parallel Council is also confirming its fundraising strategy for this project, this will include procuring the services of external specialists to assist with key funding applications.

WHAKATU ARTERIAL ROAD

WILLIAM NELSON PARK

The Whakatu Industrial Park is at the heart of future industrial growth in the District. It is imperative that stronger transport links are developed with the Port of Napier and other industrial areas around Hastings. The Council’s Long Term Plan includes a project focused on investigating the feasibility of creating this transportation link.

The development of a new inner city park built on land bordered by St Aubyn Street, King Street and Avenue Road will include a passive park area, children’s playground and skate plaza that includes the latest and most innovative designs.

The total cost of this project is estimated at $11.2m. A subsidy of 61% would be funded from the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA), leaving $4.4m to be funded by Hastings District ratepayers. These funds are spread over four years, with $1.5m allocated in the 2013/14 financial year.

Progress to date: During 2012 a comprehensive consultation process including seven public meetings, and an Enquiry by Design process, was undertaken to obtain the community views on possible alignment of the route. The current status of the project is as follows: 

Design & Assessment of Environmental Effects leading to a Land Designation has been commissioned. Land Purchase and other specification preparation prior to construction are being planned.

Progress to date: Council set a fundraising target of $394,000, and a large number of businesses, charities and schools have made contributions, with over $300,000 raised in 2012. Additional support has come from Sport Hawke’s Bay who, through their KiwiSport fund, have provided funds to enable the provision of an on-site coaching and mentoring programme for users of the skatepark at key times, 365 days per year. A management group has also been established with key representatives of the community including Sport HB, District Health Board, Atomic, Hastings Police, Directions, along with parents and skaters. The group meets regularly to ensure that provisions are in place to ensure this new park is a successful and safe place for young people to meet. The tender for the contract will be awarded early 2013.

SPORTS PARK HAWKE’S BAY The Regional Sports Park on Percival Road has been in development for a number of years and has now been operational for some time.

Key actions for 2013/14: 

Development during 2013/14 will be limited to completing works commenced during 2012/13. No new works are budgeted for in 2013/14.

Progress to date: The park is currently operational with athletics, netball and football facilities established. During 2012/13 a few elements at the park will be finished off to enable the codes currently located at the park to get maximum usage and enjoyment. These relate to football changing facilities, a perimeter cycling and walking track and some minor enhancements in landscaping and netball facilities. In addition, development of a hockey turf facility at the park is being progressed with funding assistance from the regional facility fund at the Hawkes Bay Regional Council (HBRC). The current state of the hockey turf development is as follows: 

Hastings District Council and the HBRC have provisionally approved funding for the development of a hockey facility that will provide much needed capacity to the local hockey community.

In addition a consortium of local businesses is in talks with Hockey New Zealand on the possibility of an ongoing international tournament to be held in Hastings. If this can be achieved, the Hockey facility will be further developed to enable it to host such tournaments.

FLAXMERE DEVELOPMENT

TE MATA PARK VISITOR/EDUCATION CENTRE

A town centre plan for Flaxmere has been developed in conjunction with the community. The primary goals are to improve economic opportunity, promote community identity and enhance community safety. A plan change for the project has been completed.

The Council support the construction of a purpose-built facility at Te Mata Park to act as a visitor/education centre and provide café, ablution and retail facilities for visitors.

Aligned with the town centre plan is the recent adoption of a reserve management plan for Flaxmere Park which addresses a number of issues identified with the existing park, such as safety, carparking and inadequate pathways.

Progress to date: Phase 1 of the community’s vision for the park is now complete. It has seen the creation of:  New carpark to improve accessibility;  1.5km of new walking and cycle paths;  New park lighting for improved safety;  New Splash Pad and children’s playground for improved play and recreation;  New toilet block and other amenities such as drinking fountain;  Adult fitness equipment and new community BBQ. The opening of the new park was held on 25 November 2012, with over 4000 people enjoying the sunshine and exciting new facilities.

SUPPORTING INDUSTRIAL AND RESIDENTIAL GROWTH 1.

Industrial Development

WALKING AND CYCLING In 2010 Hastings District Council was successful in being chosen as a model walking and cycling community by the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA).

As part of Council’s ongoing commitment to providing for industrial development and jobs, new industrial land development areas in Irongate and Omahu have been provided for within the Long Term Plan.

Government funding for the project totalled $4.1m including expenditure on walking and cycling initiatives and education.

On-going planning for industrial growth in the areas of Irongate and Omahu continues.

Council contributed a further $2.4m from related projects already budgeted in our plans towards footpath upgrades and connectivity and roundabout safety enhancement.

2.

Progress to date:

Residential Development

In the short/medium term new residential land demand will be located in the new urban development areas of Lyndhurst, Williams Street and Arataki, which were earmarked by previous growth strategies to be areas to be rezoned in accordance with projected demand or need. Development focus will continue in these areas. Note: The costs associated with growth such as the installation of underground services are funded from contributions levied upon new developments.

The final year of the initial project (2012/13) saw completion of routes in Havelock North, Oak Avenue, Whakatu to Clive arterial and other urban road enhancements.

Key actions for 2013/14: Further enhancement projects for 2013/14 include:  Further additions and enhancements to the cycle collector route network throughout the area, in order to complete the originally planned iWay network. These will include both on-road cycle lanes and off-road pathways  Launch of key campaigns in schools and businesses to promote active transport in the area  Additional facilities such as bike racks, shelters, maps and seats along some routes  Planning for major connectivity improvements, including across State Highways and bridges.

Key Changes TRANSPORTATION The Council receives financial assistance from the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) for a significant proportion of the annual transportation programme. The financial assistance distributed by NZTA is generated through fuel levies and road user charges. This funding generally accounts for about 50% of the cost with the balance coming from local rates. Currently more of NZTA’s investment emphasis is being placed on roads of national significance, which has impacted on the share distributed for our local roads. Changes in funding allocations have resulted in a $3.1m funding shortfall over 3 years to support the transportation programme planned within the first three years of the Long Term Plan (2012/13 – 2014/15). When this is combined with the associated local share of rate funding ($2.99m) the total impact on the planned transportation programme is $6.1m over 3 years The subsidy shortfall from NZTA for the 2013/14 financial year is $1,035,000 which equates to a total reduction in the transportation work programme for 2013/14 of $2.03m (when combined with Councils share $995,000).

FINANCE AND PROGRAMME IMPLICATIONS The Council has assessed the options to accommodate the funding shortfall outlined opposite. The Council’s position is that local rates should not be used to fund works that the Council considers central government should be funding. If we were to do so every dollar of ratepayer funds used will only achieve approximately half the amount of work. This approach will require a scaling back of the Council’s planned work programme in areas such as: 

Road side mowing and CBD sweeping

Asset planning knowledge and monitoring

Our crash , customer and vandalism responses

The renewal of our roads

Conversion to energy efficient street lighting

The strengthening of bridges

The Council’s assessment is that these measures can be sustained in the short term with the least impact on the roading network and road users.

The deferral of work above will leave a budgeted local rates funded share ($2.99m over 3 years) which is unmatched with NZTA subsidy funding. Options in regard to the use of rate funding which is unmatched with NZTA subsidy are discussed over the page.

Annual Plan 2013/14

15


Hastings District Council

UNMATCHED SUBSIDY FUNDING – OPTIONS In the Council’s view the shortfall in funding will have long term implications on the quality of the roading network. The planned programme of works within the Long Term Plan specifically addresses our long term roading investment needs – particularly in terms of road renewals and bridge strengthening. These pressure points on our roading network are not going to disappear. It isn’t considered equitable to leave this funding burden to future ratepayers alone. The approach proposed therefore is to continue to collect local rates (for our key critical roading needs) and to place these in a ring fenced financial reserve for the purpose of being able to fund our future roading programmes when NZTA subsidies become available. This approach will also mean that ratepayers are not asked to respond to rapidly fluctuating financial demands in the future.

OTHER OPTIONS (1) Council could continue to undertake roading works without

the subsidy support – this has been discounted as an option

as Council considers that it should be maximising subsidy opportunity and not subsidising programmes which should be partly funded by NZTA. (2) A greater share of the rates funds ($2.99m over 3 years) could be deducted from Council’s budgets and therefore reduce the rating impact in 2013/14 and 2014/15 - this

has been discounted as an option as the funding programme within Council budgets is considered the optimal programme for the integrity of the roading network and is a funding need that should be met by both current and future ratepayers. The Council welcomes feedback on the options outlined.

The proposal is to: (1) Allocate $320,000 (over 3 years) to additional road safety works which NZTA have confirmed will attract subsidy support (2) Place $2,310,000 (over 3 years) in a dedicated roading reserve for future works programmes as funding from NZTA becomes available. (3) Deduct $160,000 from roading budgets from the 2013/14 year and $200,000 in the 2014/15 financial year to assist in reducing rates in those years – and to acknowledge that despite ongoing discussions with NZTA the full amount of subsidy funding is unlikely to be obtained.

By placing our local share (rates) in a ring fenced reserve we will be in a position to match any subsidised funding should it become available in the future. The funds will be used to offset Council debt in the meantime so as to reduce borrowing costs to ratepayers.

This is Council’s preferred option and has been reflected within this draft budget. Annual Plan 2013/14

RATING POLICY The Council’s Long Term Plan which was adopted in June 2012 contained amendments to the levels of differential rating. Due to the impact of the change an 8 year phase-in period was introduced. The 2013/14 financial year will be the second year of that phase-in. The Council’s Rating Review Committee have continued their programme of review during 2012 and are recommending the following changes for introduction from 1 July 2013.

Change to Waimarama Seawall Targeted Rate

Three distinct zones were created reflecting the different level of benefit properties were receiving from the seawall. Within each zone the total rate requirement was levied on properties based on the land value of the property – therefore properties would contribute different amounts relative to the properties land value. After submissions from groups within the community the council has reviewed the basis on which the rate is being levied within each of the three zones. A change is being proposed whereby each property within each zone would pay the same uniform rate irrespective of property value on the basis that repairs and upgrade of the seawall was a shared and equal responsibility. The initial assignment of costs would reflect any difference in benefit between properties in each zone. The effect of this change is detailed below: Current distribution of rates based on a properties land value within each zone Properties 45 21 25 91

Proposed distribution of rates based on a uniform targeted rate on properties within each zone

Rating Area Two – Classification of Small Holdings As part of the Councils previous review into differential rating the following differentials were set on the general rate in Rating Area Two: Farming/Horticulture

100

Residential

76

Commercial

104

(Note: previously all properties paid the same rate in the dollar other than commercial properties which had a differential of 250 – or 2.5 times the standard rate). Farming and horticulture properties were assessed as receiving a higher level of benefit from some of Councils expenditure relative to residential properties– particularly within the roading activity. These changes are being phased-in over 8 years. Now that a difference exists in the rate in the dollar between Residential properties (lower rate) and Farming /Horticulture properties (higher rate) the Council have reviewed the classification of properties to ensure they are allocated to the appropriate differential. This Draft Annual Plan outlines a proposed change to more clearly define when a small holding should be treated as a residential site and when it should be treated as a Lifestyle / Horticulture / Farming site.

17


Hastings District Council

The proposal is that any small holding less than 1 hectare be classified as Residential, whilst any small holding 1 hectare or greater would be treated as Lifestyle/Horticulture/Farming for the purpose of applying general rate differentials. It is considered that a less than 1 hectare site is more clearly akin to a residential site.

Clive – Residential Boundary Change Periodically the Council reviews its rating boundaries to ensure properties are allocated to the correct rating classification. This is particularly the case where new development occurs on boundary fringes.

The effect of this change is detailed below: This would involve the transfer of: 

233 properties from Horticulture / Farming to Residential. These properties would be advantaged by paying a lower Rate in the Dollar of Land Value.

458 properties from Residential to Lifestyle / Horticulture / Farming. These properties would be disadvantaged by paying a higher Rate in the Dollar of Land Value.

In a recent review it was identified that some new development areas in Clive which sit outside the existing Clive residential rating boundary need to be incorporated within it, given that the same level of service is being provided to these properties relative to the other residential areas of Clive. The effect of this change is detailed below: This would involve the transfer of 52 properties from their current classification of Residential Non-Urban to Residential Clive. The impact on an average property is outlined in the table below:

4,250 properties remain in their current differential classification and would have a minor advantage from the change.

Rating Group

The following table shows the impact on an average property being transferred between rating differentials:

Annual Plan 2013/14

Land Value

Property owners in Waipatiki are being separately consulted on proposed increases to the water supply targeted rate to fund works relating to the quality of the water supply. Consultation is also occurring in respect to the recovery of capital costs associated with the Waipatiki Water Supply Scheme. A targeted rate is proposed on all properties in Waipatiki – payable over either a one or a three year term.

Policy Amendments REMOVAL OF POLICY ON PARTNERSHIPS WITH PRIVATE SECTOR A former requirement of the Local Government Act 2002 was for the Council to have a policy within its Long Term Plan in regard to various arrangements relating to private sector partnerships. This part of the legislation was repealed on 27 November 2010. Due to the legislative change the Council is formally withdrawing its previous policy on Partnerships with the Private Sector. This is purely an administrative tidy-up to align Council practice to the amended Local Government Act 2002.

MINOR AMMENDMENTS TO COUNCILâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S SIGNIFICANCE POLICY The Local Government Act 2002 requires a Council to have in place a Significance Policy. This policy outlines the general approach of the Council to determining the significance of issues, proposals and other matters. The relative level of significance of a particular matter then informs the approach the council undertakes in terms of consultation and decision making. Recent amendments made to the Local Government Act 2002 require two minor and inconsequential amendments to be made to Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Significance Policy. The nature of the two amendments is as follows: (1) To remove reference to the Policy on Partnerships with the Private Sector (a provision which has been repealed as explained opposite). (2) To remove wording that refers to the social, economic, environmental, or cultural well-being of the district or region (changed to reflect the wording changes made to the amended Local Government Act 2002).

Other Matters

.

CLIFTON COASTAL ISSUES The future of our coastline and the impacts of erosion are a key strategic matter for the Hastings District. The stretch of land between Te Awanga and Clifton has been particularly vulnerable to coastal erosion for some time. Access to both the existing campground (No.1) and to the Clifton Boat Ramp is now under serious threat. Retention of public access to this boat ramp is desirable; given it is the only ramp south of Napier (other than Waimarama), that provides direct access to the sea. The Council encourages community feedback on the appropriate response. Whilst no definite way forward has been set out as yet, some possible options are as follows â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as the basis of a starting point for discussion on this matter: 1. Protection of the road access to the boat ramp and the campground could be undertaken via protection works (enabling replenishment and building up of the beach) in front of the existing access road. 2. A possible retreat away from the main camp ground (No.1) to land directly behind the No.2 campground with the resultant vacant land providing space for a wider public reserve development. An approximate cost of protection works (Option 1) would be in the order of $100,000 plus consent costs in the order of $60,000 to $80,000. Any decision by Council to support such works would be subject to a full costing and feasibility study as well as obtaining the necessary consenting requirements. This option would likely need to be funded from rates (approximately 0.3% rates increase) The costs and feasibility of purchasing or leasing land to enable relocation of the campground and development of a wider public reserve have not been scoped at this time.

Annual Plan 2013/14

Hastings District Council

Protection versus Relocation

Who would pay?

The protection of the existing road may be the most cost effective short-term solution to protect access to the existing No.1 campground and boat ramp.

Protection works of the nature outlined above would likely need to be paid by rates (in full or in part) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; do you consider such works to have a public benefit and to what degree? Should rates money be used to fund such works in full or in part?

However, the on-going nature of coastal erosion means that a longer term view may be the most prudent approach to securing the future of recreational opportunities in the Clifton area into the future. Whilst further detail is required to fully assess the best way forward, community views are welcomed at this time as to three fundamental alternatives: (1) Protect existing access to campground and boat ramp.

A broader plan and approach could be to develop a new reserve with public access at an alternative location. Do you consider there to be a public benefit in a wider public reserve development. Should rates money be used to fund such works in full or in part?

(2) A managed relocation of the campsite to the general locality of the existing No.2 campground, along with a wider public reserve development. (3) No Council involvement in providing for future recreational opportunity in Clifton.

GAS TO ENERGY The Omarunui Joint Refuse Committee (the Committee) has agreed to enter into an arrangement with an entity to sell landfill gas to enable the establishment of a gas to energy facility at the Omarunui Landfill. Currently gas generated from the Omarunui Landfill is flared off. Furthermore the committee has recommended to the parent councils (Napier City and Hastings District) that they consider investing in the construction and ownership of a landfill gas to energy facility at the Omarunui Landfill. Hastings District Council have been in negotiations with two energy sector participants for some time and have developed a high level business case. A detailed business case is being prepared and one of the energy sector participants has indicated that they will design, build, operate, fund and own 100% of a 1 MW gas to energy facility providing it meets their investment criteria and is approved by their Board. A new gas to energy facility will supply power to around 1500 homes. Council has approved the building of the gas to energy facility so that if it is approved by the Board of the energy partner referred to above the project can proceed. This energy sector participant has provided Hastings District Council and the other energy participant with an option to acquire up to 40% of the venture at a cost of up to $900,000. This is required to be exercised by 31 August 2013. It is expected that the other energy sector participant will take up a stake in the venture thereby reducing the maximum amount that will be available to Council (i.e. $450,000).

In addition turning gas into energy which is currently flared makes good environmental sense, and occurs in other parts of New Zealand. The returns from the holding of a stakeholder investment are also expected to provide a positive return to rate payers and reduce reliance on rate payer funding. Energy plants that provide energy into the local grid also improve the security of electricity supply to Hawke’s Bay. Financial details are commercially sensitive, but assuming the Board of the energy entity approve the final detailed business plan, it is expected that the plant will be commissioned during 2014. Hastings District Council has until 31 August 2013 to exercise its option to take an equity share. On the basis that all profits were distributed to shareholders, this would have the following impact on ratepayers: HDC 40% investment share $ impact % impact on rates

The entity if established will buy gas from the Omarunui Landfill providing a long term revenue stream. The high level business case demonstrates that sound commercial returns are forecast from the investment in the venture. Council’s participation as a stakeholder in this venture will be subject to Council’s final approval of the detailed business case and appropriate shareholder, governance and contractual agreements. Council’s participation in this venture as a stakeholder will facilitate a strategic alignment of the interests of the landfill and the owners/operators of the energy plant. The joining of Local Government and Energy Sector participants has proved to be a successful model for these businesses.

Implementation and costs Key Messages

This section showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re planning to do, and how much it is expected to cost to implement Year Two of the Long Term Plan. Variations from what was planned in Year Two of the Long Term Plan are also outlined.

Overall Financial Position BUDGET PROCESS

COMPLIANCE WITH FINANCIAL STRATEGY

Whilst the Year Two budget within the Long Term Plan contained inflation allowances (3.5% Roads and Water, 4.7% Energy costs and 3.2% for other expenditure) the Council started the budget process with a non inflation adjusted budget and looked to manage its activities within its 2012/13 budgets. In some cases known cost increases have been factored into the budget, such as forward maintenance contracts in our asset areas. Any items of proposed new expenditure were fully scrutinised by a Budget Review Board and only those items considered a necessary priority have been included within the draft Annual Plan budget.

The Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial strategy contained within the Long Term Plan 2012-22 sets out limits on rate requirements, rates increases and debt levels.

RATES The total rates forecast within the Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial strategy for 2013/14 is $64.9m, which equates to an average rates increase of 3.8%. This draft budget contains a total rating requirement of $64.3m which equates to an average rates increase of 2.8%. (Key changes are outlined on page 3). Note: Individual property increases could vary from above due to the phase-in of changes to the rating system which commenced in 2012/13 and which form part of a further seven year phase-in period.

The Draft 2013/14 budget is set well within these limits as follows:

Financial Strategy Limit

2013/14 Draft Budget

Rates increase (CPI + 4%) < 4.9%

2.80 %

Net debt as a % of equity < 20%

4.92 %

Net debt as a % of income <150%

77.00 %

Net interest as a % of income <15%

5.19 %

Net interest as a % of annual rates income <20 %

8.18 %

Liquidity (Term debt + committed loan facilities to existing debt) >110%

138.04 %

DEBT The Long Term Plan 2012-22 forecast the net debt for the 2013/14 financial year at $87.8m. This draft budget contains a net debt forecast level of $78.0m. The variance from the LTP forecast relates to a lower opening debt position as at 30 June 2012, largely due to deferral of growth related expenditure because of the challenging economic conditions.

Hastings District Council

Disclosures Reporting Entity Hastings District Council ("the Council") is a territorial authority within the definition of the Local Government Act 2002 and domiciled in New Zealand. No changes have been made to Council as a reporting entity from that outlined within the 2012/22 Long Term Plan. The primary objective of the Council is to provide goods and services for the community or social benefit rather than making a financial return. Accordingly the Council has designated itself and the group as public benefit entities for the purposes of New Zealand equivalents to International Financial Reporting Standards (NZ IFRS). All available reporting exemptions allowed under the framework for Public Benefit Entities have been adopted.

The Council financial statements presented in this Draft Annual Plan include a forecast statement of comprehensive income, reconciliation between the forecast statement of comprehensive income and forecast cost of service statements, a statement of cashflows, a statement of financial position and a statement of movements in public equity, with supporting notes, encompassing all activities of the Council. In order to meet its obligations of public accountability, the Council has also included for each group of activities, a separate statement of operating costs and revenues and capital costs and revenues. Measurement Base

The financial information contained within the Draft Annual Plan may not be appropriate for purposes other than those described.

The measurement base adopted is that of historical cost, modified by the revaluation of certain classes of property, plant and equipment, and financial instruments (including derivative instruments).

Basis of Preparation

Functional and presentation currency

The Council, who are authorised to do so and believe that the assumptions underlying these forecast financial statements are appropriate, adopted the Draft Annual Plan 2013/14 on 26 March 2013. The Council and management of the Hastings District Council accept responsibility for the preparation of their forecast financial statements, including the appropriateness of the assumptions underlying the prospective financial statements and all other required disclosures. Note: The assumptions which underpin the Long Term Plan 2012/22 are still considered current and based on best information. These have been used in the development of the Draft Annual Plan 2013/14.

The financial statements are presented in New Zealand dollars and all values are rounded to the nearest thousand dollars ($â&#x20AC;&#x2122;000). The functional currency of the Hastings District Council and group is New Zealand dollars.

No actual financial results have been incorporated within the prospective financial statements.

The information in the prospective financial statements is uncertain and the preparation requires the exercise of judgement. Actual financial results achieved for the period covered are likely to vary from the information presented, and the variations may be material. Events and circumstances may not occur as expected or may not have been predicted or the Council may subsequently take actions that differ from the proposed courses of action on which the forecast financial statement are based. The information contained within these forecast financial statement may not be suitable for use in another capacity.

Statement of compliance The financial statements and group financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Local Government Act 2002, which includes the requirement to comply with New Zealand generally accepted accounting practice (NZ GAAP). They comply with NZ IFRS, and other applicable Financial Reporting Standards, as appropriate for public benefit entities. The accounting policies have been applied consistently to all periods presented in these financial statements.

Changes in Accounting Policies There are no changes in accounting policies for the 2013/14 financial year. Please refer to the Long Term Plan 2012/22 for the full Statement of Accounting Policies and underlying assumptions. Cautionary Note

Review of Forecasts The forecast will be reviewed as part of the Annual Plan consultation process and any significant changes will be explained in the final plan.

Hastings District Council

Reserves Council Created Reserves The Council has created a number of reserves, commonly referred to as special funds, to set aside funds for various purposes (e.g. asset replacements, emergency funds etc). The Council sets aside and invests funds for these reserves with any interest earned on the investments being credited to the reserves. The major categories of Council created reserves are: Plant, Equipment and Vehicle Replacement Funds are set aside to provide for the ongoing replacement of operational assets such as essential plant, vehicles and equipment. Property Maintenance and Improvements Funds are set aside to maintain and enhance existing Council assets and also to provide funds for new projects such as motorway linkages. General Purpose Reserves Each of the Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rating groups has a general purpose reserve. Any year end balance for the rating group is placed into the general purpose reserves to enable the use of those funds to be debated at the next budget round. It has been the practice of Council to use the general purpose reserves to either reduce debt or to reduce the rating requirement in subsequent years. Emergency Funds Council has set aside funds to assist in the event of an emergency. Purposes for which funds are currently set aside are flood damage and rural fire. Effluent Disposal Council operates an effluent disposal scheme together with major users. Each year funds are placed into a reserve for the maintenance of the scheme with funds withdrawn to fund major works. Sundry Reserves This represents a number of other reserves set aside for various purposes. Separate Rates Reserves This represents the balance of funds collected from various targeted rates which have not yet been spent.

Restricted Reserves These are reserves, the use of which is restricted by some external force, e.g. trust deeds or legislation. Trusts and Bequests are funds which have been bequeathed to Council for specific purposes. Funds are separately invested with the interest earned on these investments added to the balance of the various special funds. Reserve Purchase and Development Funds are funds which have been levied on subdivisions under Section 274 of the Local Government Act 1974.

DIFFERENTIAL CATEGORIES AND CHARGING FACTORS The following statement relates to the statutory requirement to outline the definition of rateable land and the factors used in calculating liability for rates.

Residential properties in Rating Area One are used as the base (factor 100) and other property types are adjusted against this base. In Rating Area Two the base is the Lifestyle/Horticulture/Farming differential. For Rating Area One properties Residential Clive and Residential Non Urban (including Townships & Small Settlements), have both been discounted to varying degrees due to their locality and ability to use all services provided. Horticulture/Farming properties within Rating Area One have also been discounted for similar reasons, in particular costs relating to urban stormwater services do not apply to this category. Commercial properties are required to pay a greater proportion of the general rate and the differential factor reflects the increased impact on the roading network and urban amenities such as footpaths and stormwater systems for commercial properties. The Council have had a policy of increasing the use of fixed per property charges in the last ten years, which shifts the incidence of rates away from the commercial sector. The commercial differential factor also takes into consideration the impact this policy change has had on the distribution of rates between different categories of property. The Commercial Non UrbanPeripheral category is discounted in comparison to the main commercial category due to locality and availability of services.

The objective of using differential rating is to spread the incidence of rates as equitably as possible, by balancing the level of service provided by the Council with ability to pay and the incidence of costs in relation to benefits received. The Council does this in two ways:

The Community and Resource Management targeted rate is calculated separately for Rating Area One and Rating Area Two. For Rating Area One properties in the Residential Clive, Residential Non Urban, Horticulture/Farming and Commercial Non Urban -Peripheral categories are charged 70% of the amount charged to the Residential and Commercial categories to reflect the distance from the main urban services. The structure is as follows:

(A)

Differential Rating Area One

DIFFERENTIAL RATING GROUPS – GENERAL RATE COMMUNITY SERVICES/RESOURCE MANAGEMENT RATE

AND

Two Rating Groups

All land in the Hastings District will be allocated to either Differential Rating Area One or Differential Rating Area Two. These areas are defined on Council map “Differential Rating Areas” and are based on broad areas of benefit from the Council’s services and facilities. All costs are allocated into the two rating groups based on a range of formulas designed to reflect the benefit received by properties in each main group. (B)

Differential Classifications

Within each rating group differential classifications have been applied to reflect differences in the levels of service and benefit properties receive based on their location and the nature of the activities undertaken. Annual Plan 2013/14

The differential categories for the sewage disposal and wastewater treatment rates are: Differential Category

Council intends to refine its differential categories as part of its ongoing Rating Review work. This may lead to the reclassification of some properties from one Differential group to another. NOTE: i) Properties which have no apparent land use (or are vacant properties) will be placed in the category which best suits the zoning of the property under the district plan except where the size or characteristics of the property suggest an alternative use. ii)

iii)

iv)

v)

Properties which have more than one use (or where there is doubt as to the relevant predominant use) will be placed in the category with the highest differential factor – or if in the Council’s opinion it is fair and reasonable to do so, then the Council may undertake a rating division and allocate each part to the most appropriate category. Subject to the right of objection as set out in Section 29 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002, it shall be at the sole discretion of the Council to determine the use or predominant use of all separately rateable properties in the district. "Residential use" means land used solely for one or more household units. "Household unit" means a self contained unit (but not a* commercial accommodation provider or prison) used or intended for the habitation of one household with or without a right to use facilities or amenities in common with other households. Where a ratepayer under Section 20 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002, has land which is contiguous and treated as contiguous for the purpose of rates, the combined area of those rating units will constitute its differential factor.

Amendment to Long Term Plan 2012-22

Annual Plan 2013/14

74


Hastings District Council

Amendment to Long Term Plan 2012-22 Development Contributions Policy A separate document outlines the policy and the proposed changes in detail. Outlined below is a summary of the proposed amendment and its impact.

What is the Development Contributions Policy? This policy requires those responsible for creating growth within our district, whether through subdivision, building, new service connections or a change in land use, to pay a fair share of the resulting additional infrastructure cost being borne by Council.

(2) To make non consequential wording changes to the policy to align some of the wording with changes made to the amended Local Government Act 2002. A copy of the full Draft Development Contributions Policy is available on the Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consultation website www.myvoicemychoice.co.nz, at public libraries, or you can phone 871 5000 and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll post you a copy. Submission forms are also available at the locations above. Submissions Close 13 May 2013.

Why amend the policy? The policy is being amended for 2 key reasons: (1) To signal further refinement of the costs associated with proposed industrial developments in Omahu Road and Irongate which have been ring-fenced and will be recovered from those properties benefiting from the new industrial zone and the infrastructural investment within it. Note: The Council has now developed two refined design solutions for Irongate, both of which are anticipated to result in lower overall capital investment requirements. Council will continue to consult with Stage 1 Landowners in Irongate regarding these refined services design plans, and endeavour to confirm the services plan between now and June 2013, including amendments to capital budgets and any changes to development contributions levies
