Community outcomes describe what the community values now and what it wants in the future. These are items that reflect what the community sees as important for its
well-being. In 2005 we consulted with the community and key stakeholders to establish a comprehensive community outcomes programme in response to the feedback we
received.

    rating unit. Each separate business is considered a separately used or inhabited
    part. There may be exceptions where the different businesses are so closely linked
    that they are considered different parts of the same business.
-   For residential rating units each self contained residential area is considered a
    separately used or inhabited part. Each situation is considered on its merits but
    some of the factors taken into account to determine whether an area is self-
    contained are:
    - Does the area have its own toilet facilities?
    - Does the area have its own cooking/kitchen facilities?
    - Does the area have its own entrance?

 Income
 Income includes rates revenue, operational revenue, grants and subsidies as well as income received in relation to capital projects. The $23m decrease in revenue when compared with the
 City Plan forecast is mainly due to lower rates increase proposed $6.5m, lower development contributions income projected $12m, and reduced Land Transport NZ subsidies $6m.

 Expenditure
 The overall expenditure is $1.4m higher than was projected in the City Plan. Depreciation is $4.4m lower than forecast in the City Plan, whilst employee benefit expenses are $0.7m higher
 and other expenditure $5.1m higher.

Capital expenditure
The increase in new capital expenditure is mainly due to the Birkenhead Library project which has been partially deferred out to 2008/09, some wastewater project work which has been brought
forward to accelerate the delivery of a few key projects, and budget provision of $1.7m for an Animal Shelter which was not provided for in the City Plan.

The proposed renewals capital works programme is largely in line with that proposed in the City Plan 2006-16 except for the wastewater programme where capital works have been brought forward.

Equity is the community’s interest in the council and is measured as the difference        1 first-time adoption of NZ IFRS in relation to its infrastructure, property and other
between total assets and total liabilities. Equity is disaggregated and classified into    assets that are currently carried at valuation. Under this exemption the council is
a number of reserves.                                                                      permitted to use the carrying values of property, plant and equipment under current

reporting as deemed cost. This is a one-off exemption that can only be applied on
the opening NZ IRFS balance sheet. The impact for the council is the transfer of
$1.4b from the revaluation reserve to general equity.

Change to accounting policies since the Annual Plan 2007/08
Borrowing costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition, construction or
production of a qualifying asset are capitalised as part of the cost of the asset.
Previously they were recognised as an expense.

Infrastructure
The city’s infrastructure is its lifeblood. It enables people to have a high quality of life, for our environment to be protected and businesses to operate more effectively.

Our infrastructure constantly requires renewing as it ages and expanding as the city grows. More recently the council has been upgrading the infrastructure to improve
the city’s environmental performance and to protect the environment for current and future generations. It is the significant activity that uses the most resources and is
one of our highest priorities.

Four output areas make up the infrastructure significant activity - Wastewater - Stormwater - Transportation - Water Supply

These output areas contribute to the council’s key outcomes in the following way:

Environmental Management
Many people come to live and work on the North Shore because of the lifestyle and environment the city offers. We need to make sure the qualities that make our city special
are protected and enhanced - now and for the future. By identifying the type of city we want, the council can plan the future of our city, enhancing its environmental features
and heritage. Controls for development and bylaws make sure the special qualities of our city are preserved while monitoring the health of our environment.

As our population increases and urban development intensifies, further pressures are placed on our environment. Because of these pressures the council’s environmental
management activity has become more important.

Four output areas make up the Environmental Management significant activity - Environmental Policy and Planning, Environmental Protection, Environmental Consents
and Compliance and Waste Minimisation.

These output areas contribute to the council’s key outcomes in the following way:




                                                                         Output Area / Activity

                   Note 1:
                   The increased operating expenditure in this output area is mainly due to increased indirect costs for Corporate Support as well as increased
                   processing costs for consent applications which have been partially offset by increased revenue.

                   Note 2:
                   There is no capital expenditure in 2008/09 for this output area.

Community Services
Encouraging people to take part in community activities creates a positive spirit in the city and enhances community and personal development. It adds to the health and
vitality of the city and its people.

The council provides a range of opportunities for community groups and individuals to get involved in recreation, leisure, arts, culture and educational activities. It also
supports community volunteers and groups by using grants, subsidies and providing facilities. As the city’s population has increased, its people have become more diverse.
This has increased the demands and the range of the council’s community services.

Six output areas make up the Community Services significant activity - Libraries - Parks, Beaches and Sportsfields - Leisure Services - Community Liaison, Grants, Arts
and Civil Defence - Housing for Older People - Cemetery.

These output areas contribute to the council’s key outcomes in the following way:

(*) The title of this measure is quoted as “household” in the City Plan 2006-16, although the actual figures are measured by “resident”. Therefore the title in this
    Annual Plan has been amended to accurately reflect what is being measured.

The Local Government Act 2002 requires the council to provide for recreation and        ➾   Albany Lakes development
the Reserves Act sets the process for classifying and protecting reserves. The city’s   ➾   Sanders Reserve recreation facilities development planning
extensive range of parks, beaches and coastal walkways is enjoyed for a variety of      ➾   Milford Reserve bridge
reasons. North Shore City has an extensive coastline that is highly valued by           ➾   Takapuna/Devonport coastal walkways
residents and visitors. There are long stretches of white sand to relax on, safe        ➾   Schopolo Reserve walkway
locations for picnics and vantage points to the sea.                                    ➾   Campbells Bay walkway
                                                                                        ➾   Ashley Reserve public convenience
Many people use these spaces for playing, exercise and other forms of recreation.       ➾   Three Rivers
Other people value these spaces for the solitude or views they provide. There are
large parks in all regions of the city, many of which have sportsfields, playgrounds,
bush walks, streams and other recreational amenities.

As the city’s population and residential density increase, availability and
affordability of additional parkland reduce. Changes in society and lifestyle are
changing people’s recreation patterns. The focus will gradually shift towards
appropriate, sustainable improvement of existing parks to meet the city’s open
space and activity requirements. It is important we provide for future generations
by protecting natural areas and ecosystems.

The council has chosen to provide this service through in-house planning and
administration with contracted physical works for all operational, maintenance and
capital works.

Note 1:
Income from Development Contributions for this output area has been revised down by $3.9m compared to projections in the City Plan, mainly due to current expectations of collectable consent
numbers.
Note 2:
Operating expenditure increases are due to price adjustments of existing contracted maintenance services as a result of inflation driven cost factors such as fuel and general operating costs.
Note 3:
The reduction in capital expenditure for the 2008/09 year is due to the earlier completion of work relating to Wainoni Park walkway development. For further details of this output area’s capital
projects in the plan, please refer to the Capital Projects section.
Note 4:
Please refer to the council’s Revenue and Financing Policy and Treasury Management Policy for further explanation as to the funding sources utilised for this output area. These are both located

Note 1:
Increased financing costs for this output area relate to the North Harbour Stadium loans as the council resolved to take over the stadium loans it had guaranteed earlier than anticipated in the
City Plan, as there are projected long term savings in interest costs.
Note 2:
There is no capital expenditure for this output area in 2008/09.
Note 3:
Please refer to the council’s Revenue and Financing Policy and Treasury Management Policy for further explanation as to the funding sources utilised for this output area. These are both located
in Module 6 of the City Plan 2006-16 and in the Statement of Proposal to amend the City Plan 2006-16.

Economic Development
The prosperity of the North Shore and its people is determined by its economic health. Levels of business activity and growth, a skilled workforce and tourism all
contribute towards a healthy economy. While not directly involved in economic development, there are many ways in which the council can plan and promote it. For
many years the council has sought to become more self-sufficient, encouraging economic development in the city to provide employment opportunities close to home.
Higher levels of self-sufficiency not only improve people’s quality of life; they also help reduce traffic congestion. The council has also sought to attract science,
education and technology industries to the city. With increasing global competition, we need to have the right infrastructure and support systems in place to attract
the industries we want for the city to succeed in a knowledge economy and to attract tourism. We also need to make sure our citizens have access to the right skills
and knowledge to be able to get involved in the economy.

Economic Initiatives is the output area that covers the council’s economic development activity.

Tourism has been identified in the North Shore City Economic Development Strategy
as a lead sector with significant growth potential. North Shore city has much to offer
as a tourist destination. Tourism creates jobs, generates income and can attract
investment from external sources. Well-managed tourism can also enhance the
environment, enrich our communities and improve individual quality of life. The
day visitor clearly forms an integral part of the North Shore city tourism system and
for this reason is included din all discussions in North Shore City’s Tourism
Management Plan.

Local Visitor Information Centres also have an important role to play in providing
information, reservation services and marketing for the city’s attractions. Located at
Takapuna and Devonport, they are open 364 days of the year.

The council has decided to provide this service through in-house planning and
administration with a mix of in-house and sponsored service delivery.

Governance and Leadership

Local government provides community leadership and represents its citizens. Councillors, the Mayor and community board members are elected to represent the view
of North Shore’s citizens and to make decisions on their behalf, in the best interests of current and future generations. North Shore City genuinely encourages

groups. This significant activity is fully covered by the Governance and Leadership output area which contributes to the council’s key outcomes in the following way:
