Emergency Budget 2020/2021

After considering all relevant factors, including public feedback and the impact of COVID-19 and drought, we decided on a budget which maintained the previously planned 3.5 per cent average general rates increase and minimised cuts to services and investment.

Budget decisions we made in response to public feedback

  • Maintain a capital investment programme of over $2.5 billion in 2020/2021.
  • Maintain investment in initiatives to reduce our climate emissions, support the homeless and extend the living wage to contract cleaners.
  • Reinstate $40 million of transport capital expenditure, including safety funding.
  • Not reduce the local board discretionary funding.
  • Not reduce library opening hours.
