Auckland Mayor Phil Goff has outlined his vision and priorities for Auckland’s 10-year Budget (2018 – 2028).

 

“Our vision for Auckland is a world-class city where talent wants to live. It must be the city which can keep the best and brightest of our young people in New Zealand while competing globally with other cities around the world for skills, entrepreneurship and investment,” said Mayor Phil Goff.

“My key focus is to build infrastructure at a rate that matches unprecedented population growth to maintain our quality of life and make it easier to do business in our city.”

Investment in infrastructure

“The key to tackling these issues is our ability to lift investment in our infrastructure,” Phil Goff said.

“Investment in public transport, including light rail, in active transport modes like cycling and walking, and optimising our road network is critical.

“That’s why under our latest Auckland Transport Alignment Project we have set aside $27 billion for capital investment in the next decade. Currently, $5.9 billion of that is unfunded and has to be found.

“I welcome the government’s commitment to meet the larger share of that, but Auckland will also need to contribute more.

“The 10-year budget needs to consider where we source our share of the funds.

“The Interim Transport Levy is not user-related and does not raise sufficient funds. We can’t simply impose huge general rate increases to pay for infrastructure so some form of road pricing will be essential,” the mayor said.

Housing

“We need to build more houses more quickly. The Mayoral Housing Taskforce makes recommendations which we need to move to implement.

“The Auckland Unitary Plan enables land development, but we need to invest in infrastructure to allow houses to be built. This will involve intensification of houses, as well as new developments under the Future Urban Land Supply Strategy.

“Use of targeted rates as well as special purpose vehicles through Crown Infrastructure Partners will be essential. That also applies to protecting and enhancing our environment.

Environment

“Water quality is a top priority. We need to reduce wastewater overflowing into our streams and harbours. Building new water infrastructure will be our focus including new wastewater interceptors and green infrastructure.

Getting better value for money

“While the council is looking for new sources of infrastructure funding, we must also get better value for the ratepayers’ dollar.

“It is time to realise the benefits of amalgamation to deliver further efficiencies and economies of scale made possible by the super city.

“Findings from our group wide section 17A value for money reviews will be critical and I want the council to develop group wide shared services.

A world-class city

“APEC and the America’s Cup defence add impetus to our planning and provide the opportunity to create a lasting legacy for Aucklanders.

“We have the opportunity to make Auckland more prosperous, smart, innovative, inclusive and culturally rich, with a beautiful environment and choice and opportunity for all.

“With this as our vision and the investment we need in infrastructure, we will make Auckland a world-class city,” Phil Goff said.
