1.   Brief Summary

1.1       The purpose of this report is to enable the Submissions Committee to consider submitting on several Council consultation processes, namely:

1.1.1   The Christchurch City Council Draft Annual Plan 2022-23

1.1.2   Opting out of kerbside collection and targeted rate.

1.1.3   Proposal to increase rates on vacant central city land.

1.1.4   Proposal for a new Policy on Māori freehold land.

1.2       All four consultation processes opened on 11 March 2022 and close on 18 April 2022.

 

2.   Officer Recommendations Ngā Tūtohu

That the Waimāero Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board Submissions Committee:

1.         Considers making a submission to the Council on behalf of the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board regarding the following consultations:

a.         The Christchurch City Council Draft Annual Plan 2022-23

b.         Opting out of kerbside collection and targeted rate.

c.         Proposal to increase rates on vacant central city land.

d.         Proposal for a new Policy on Māori freehold land.

 

 

3.   Further Information

3.1       The Christchurch City Council Draft Annual Plan 2022-23 outlines what the Council will spend on projects and day-to-day services over the next financial year and how they'll be financed. Further information can be found here: https://ccc.govt.nz/the-council/haveyoursay/show/494

3.2       The proposal for opting out of kerbside collection and the associated targeted rate is to assist those who chose not to use the Council kerbside collection service. Currently, all developed properties pay the targeted rate for kerbside collection whether they use the service or not. The proposal is to establish a process so that property owners who choose not to use the kerbside collection do not pay the targeted rate, subject to certain conditions. Further information can be found here: https://ccc.govt.nz/the-council/haveyoursay/show/490

3.3       The proposal to increase rates on vacant central land is to introduce a “City Vacant” differential for the general rate that would apply to vacant land in parts of the Central City Business Zone and the Central City Mixed Use (South Frame) Zone from 1 July 2022. In the future the coverage area of this proposal might be extended beyond the central city to other areas in the Christchurch District with high concentrations of unimproved vacant land. Further information can be found here: https://ccc.govt.nz/the-council/haveyoursay/show/495

3.4       The proposal to adopt a new policy on Māori freehold land is in response to changes in legislation. Historically, unused Māori freehold land has technically incurred rates but in practice the Council has provided a rates remission. The changes will provide more certainty by confirming that this land is non-rateable.  The proposed Policy will also reflect new statutory requirements for the Council to:

·        Provide that the Council's Māori Freehold Land Policy must support the principles set out in the Preamble to Te Ture Whenua Maori (TTWM) Act 1993,

·        Consider remission of rates for Māori freehold land under development.
