What we need to balance

Rising investment demand

  • Rapid growth.
  • Changing community needs.
  • Transport demand.
  • Ageing assets.
  • Need to respond to climate change.
  • Need to support recovery.

Reduced investment capacity

  • COVID-19 revenue impacts.
  • Existing commitments.
  • Keeping borrowing at responsible levels, and leave enough headroom to deal with future shocks.
  • Considering the overall impact of our proposals on the well-being of our community.
