4.         Conflict of Interest

Members need to be vigilant to stand aside from decision-making when a conflict arises between their role as a Member of the Council and any private or other external interest they might have.  This note is provided as a reminder to Members to scan the agenda and assess their own private interests and identify where they may have a pecuniary or other conflict of interest, or where there may be perceptions of conflict of interest. 

If a Member feels they do have a conflict of interest, they should publicly declare that at the start of the relevant item of business and withdraw from participating in the meeting.  If a Member thinks they may have a conflict of interest, they can seek advice from the Chief Executive or Executive Advisor/Manager: Office of the Chief Executive (preferably before the meeting). 

It is noted that while Members can seek advice and discuss these matters, the final decision as to whether a conflict exists rests with the member.

REPORT TO:               Council

MEETING DATE:        Tuesday 5 June 2018

FROM:                           Strategy Manager

Lex Verhoeven

SUBJECT:                    Long Term Plan Submissions 2018-2028        

 

 

1.0       SUMMARY

1.1       The purpose of this report is to inform the Council on submissions received to the Draft Long Term Plan and to obtain decisions for incorporation into the final plan for Council adoption on 28 June 2018.

1.2       This issue arises from legislative provisions within the Local Government act 2002 requiring Council to have a Long term Plan adopted by 30 June 2018.

1.3       The Council is required to give effect to the purpose of local government as prescribed by Section 10 of the Local Government Act 2002. That purpose is to meet the current and future needs of communities for good quality local infrastructure, local public services, and performance of regulatory functions in a way that is most cost–effective for households and businesses. Good quality means infrastructure, services and performance that are efficient and effective and appropriate to present and anticipated future circumstances.

1.4       The objective of this decision relevant to the purpose of Local Government is to fulfil the statutory requirements of the Local Government Act 2002 in regard to consultation and decision making.

1.5       This report concludes by making a number of recommendations in section 5.0 to enable the Long Term Plan to be completed for final Council adoption on 28 June 2018.

3.9       Youth Council

3.10    A Long Term Plan focussed session was held with the Youth Council, where good discussion was held on a number of the consultation topics.  The key themes will be circulated to relevant officers as appropriate, and will be particularly useful to inform the more detailed future planning in the CBD and in our parks and reserves.  

4.0       RATING REMISSION SUMMARY

4.1       The purpose of this component of the report is to provide Council with a summary of the key submission themes in relation to the proposed changes to the Rate Remission and Postponement Policy, and to provide some commentary in relation to those themes.

            BACKGROUND

4.2       Council has historically applied the majority of its uniform and targeted rates on a per ‘separately used or inhabited part of a rating unit’ (SUIP), which is consistent with the majority of councils in New Zealand. In the case of residential properties, a rate is therefore applied per dwelling, unit, flat or cottage.

4.3       In April 2014, as part of a data integrity review, officers noted a significant number of properties contained additional SUIP’s that were not being rated in accordance with council’s rating policy. Officers wrote to these properties advising of council’s intention to update its records from 01 July 2014.

4.4       A number of submissions were made as part of the 2014/15 Draft Annual Plan. Council considered those submissions and agreed to amend the ‘Sundry Remission’ component of the Rate Remission and Postponement Policy to include the following:

·    To remit fixed charges on any additional dwelling, unit, flat or cottage that is being occupied by a direct family member (i.e Parent / Daughter or Son)

·    To remit charges on any additional dwelling, unit, flat, cottage, workers accommodation or visitor accommodation unit that is unable or incapable of being occupied.

·    To remit charges on any additional dwelling, unit, flat, cottage, workers accommodation or visitor accommodation unit that is provided to an employee because it’s essential in the opinion of Council they must reside on the rating unit for the on-going running of the business.

4.5       We currently have 83 properties that have made an application and meet the above criteria for remission, of which 58 meet the criteria required under the ‘direct family member’ component.

4.6       Officers were concerned that some of those ratepayers did not meet the essence of what council intended to provide rating relief for, and sought direction from the Rating Review Working Party (RRWP). Following discussion, the RRWP supported a change from ‘direct family member’ to ‘dependent member’ ensuring there was more of a dependency (medical, health, financial or other) relationship between the ratepayer and the person occupying the additional SUIP.

4.7       The proposed change was supported by Council and the proposed change was consulted upon as part of the 2018-28 Draft Long Term Plan.

            CURRENT SITUATION

4.8       Council wrote to all ratepayers who currently receive a remission under the ‘direct family member’ component of the remission policy advising them of the proposed change, some of whom may be affected by the proposed change depending on their individual circumstances.

4.9       Submissions closed with Council receiving 9 submissions in relation to the proposed change. Officers have provided commentary in relation to each submission under the Public Excluded Report.

4.10    In summary, the main underlying themes coming through the submissions were:

·    The current remission policy is appropriate.

·    The additional rates are disproportionate to the impact on council services. A fairer approach would be a charge based on the number of persons occupying the property.

·    The additional dwelling is used on an ad hoc basis by visiting family members.

·    The additional dwelling receives no additional services.

·    The ‘dwelling’ should not be classified as a ‘separately inhabited part of a rating unit’. 

·    The additional rates discourages the provision of ‘’visitor accommodation’.

·    Council should consider applying a partial charge.

·    The total number of persons (6) living on the property (across the three units) is no greater than other households.

·    The increase in rates would put a financial burden on the family.

4.11    Some of the ratepayers that submitted against the proposed change are likely to meet the proposed criteria as there appears to be a ‘dependency’ relationship between the ratepayer and the persons occupying the additional unit.

4.12    It is acknowledged that rates are a blunt tool and with over 30,000 differing rating units, it is inevitable that some perceptions of inequity exist. For example: a pensioner living in a dwelling on their own in Hastings will pay the same level of uniform and targeted rates as a dwelling occupied by a family of 5 living in Flaxmere.

4.13    Applying uniform and targeted rates on a SUIP basis is a common approach by other councils in New Zealand, particularly those that use land value to determine a properties share of the general rate. Whilst it is acknowledged there will always be some exceptions, the basic premise of applying charges in this manner, is that in most cases additional rating units will equate to additional persons who will impact and have access to council services.

4.14    Schedule 3 of the Local Government (Rating) Act prescribes the factors that can be used by council for calculating the liability for targeted rates. Applying a partial SUIP charge is not permitted, although Council could achieve that outcome by amending its Remission Policy, by setting out the specific circumstances where a partial remission is applied.

4.15    The general objectives of the policy is to provide the ratepayer with some financial assistance where they might otherwise have difficulty paying their rates, to address instances where the rating system results in anomalies in the incidence of rates, and to support Council’s broader policy objectives. 

4.16    If council were of a view that there were specific anomalies it wishes to address, raised through the submissions or otherwise, it could consider amending its remission policy where it considers appropriate. The objectives, parameters and criteria for remission would need to be clearly set out to ensure staff are not making subjective judgements. This could be a matter for the RRWP to consider.

4.17    It should be noted that any remission of rates, will be spread across the rest of the rating community.

F)        That the Council resolves, in terms of Section 82 (3) of the Local Government Act 2002, that the principles set out in that section have been observed in such a manner that the Hastings District Council considers, in its discretion, is appropriate for the decisions made during the course of this meeting.
