Our Long Term Plan is supported by a number of Strategies and Policies.
Ko te kaupapa here Moni Whiwhi me te Ahumoni - Revenue and Financing Policy
The Revenue and Financing policy describes how Greater Wellington intends to fund its expenditure. It outlines the sources of funding that Greater Wellington intends to use, and the relative level of funding from each source, for each activity. The Revenue and Financing Policy underwent a major review in 2018 during the development of the 2018-28 LTP. It was amended following 2019/20 Annual Plan consultation to introduce a general rate differential for Wellington City only. The next substantive review of the Revenue and Financing Policy will be before 2023.
Ko ngā kaupapa here Whakahaere Tūraru Rawa tae noa ki te whakahaere Kawenga, Haumi hoki - Treasury Risk Management policy, including Liability Management and Investments Policies
The Treasury Risk Management Policy provides the framework for all of the Council’s treasury management activities and defines key responsibilities and the operating parameters within which treasury activity is to be carried out. This was reviewed and adopted by council on 1 April 2021.
Ko ngā kaupapa here Whakaiti Reti me te Tārewa - Rates Remission and Postponement Policies
The Rates Remission and Postponement Policies address financial assistance and support for ratepayers, as well as anomalies and other schemes. Greater Wellington may remit some or all of the regional council rates in special circumstances where it considers it just and equitable to do so. The updated Rates Postponement Policy was adopted by Council on 20 August 2020.
Ko te kaupapa here Hirahira me Tūhono - Significance and Engagement Policy
The Significance and Engagement Policy records how we consider community views and preferences when making decisions. It identifies how and when communities can expect to be engaged in, or specifically consulted on, decisions about issues, proposals, assets, decisions and activities. It enables us and our communities to understand the significance that we place on certain issues, proposals, assets, decisions, and activities.
