The Tribune (NZ) - - CLASSIFIEDS -

The 2016/17 pro­posed An­nual PlaPlan has now been con­sulted on and was adopted on 20 June. Com­ments were re­ceived from 207 peo­ple and/or or­gan­i­sa­tions with is­sues rang­ing from ad­di­tional fes­ti­vals and events, pub­lic trans­port, cycling and walk­ing, park­ing changes, Massey Univer­sity Re­fec­tory, im­prov­ing the health of the river. SOME POINTS TO NOTE: • Most sub­mit­ters sup­ported the Coun­cil’s plans for

these ar­eas. • 57 of the 207 sub­mis­sions were pre­sented over eight hear­ing ses­sions by peo­ple/or­gan­i­sa­tions who wanted to talk about their sub­mis­sions in per­son. • Those that made a sub­mis­sion, whether they at­tended a hear­ing or not, will re­ceive a for­mal re­sponse to their sub­mis­sion based on the de­ci­sions made by the Coun­cil. • A sum­mary of “Re­sponses to Sub­mis­sions” has been pre­pared, which de­tails the Coun­cil’s de­ci­sions about the is­sues raised in all of the sub­mis­sions it re­ceived. • For the 2016/17 year the to­tal rates re­quired will in­crease by 3.9%. City Coun­cil rates on the av­er­age value sin­gle unit res­i­den­tial prop­erty will in­crease by $175 over last year. • In some parts of the City land val­ues have in­creased sig­nif­i­cantly – this means rates for them will in­crease by more than the av­er­age.
