With no additional funding - $674 million capital spend over three years

Illustration of a rugby goal poIllustration of a child on a swing, rugby pitch and woods in the background.st and a girl on a swing.We would be able to:

  • deliver the highest priority renewals
  • invest in growth and development projects that are contractually committed
  • deliver the highest priority projects, including Avondale Library and Community Centre, phasing out of boilers at aquatic facilities to reduce emissions, and some park development in higher deprivation areas
  • undertake technology and digital investment to support the move away from an asset-dominated approach.

The implications of no additional funding would expose us to more risk, including:

  • increased degradation of facilities with risk of failures due to reduced asset renewals
  • limited capacity for Community Facilities Network Plan projects
  • reduced capacity to deliver locally driven initiatives
  • new residential areas will not be provided with adequate community infrastructure, and growth and development investments are pushed out to future years
  • sports field redevelopments would be postponed
  • reduced breadth and availability of library and art collections.

With the additional funding of $65 million proposed - $739 million capital spend over three years

'Illustration of a person swimming, a library card, and some library books.We could also:

  • deliver $26 million of additional high-priority asset renewal investment - this would not meet all asset renewal requirements*
  • undertake some seismic strengthening of community facilities
  • deliver high priority growth projects, such as Scott Point’s sustainable sports park, Flatbush’s multi-use library and community centre, new open space in greenfield areas and Kāinga Ora development areas
  • deliver sports park capacity in areas of greatest need
  • deliver coastal protection projects, such as the Orewa Seawall.

*See page 29 and page 33 of the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 Consultation Document for more information on our proposed approach for community investment.

Note: the proposed investment level is not enough to adequately maintain all existing community assets. Refer to Key issue 4: Investment in our community for information on how we propose to address this.
