Some of the key decisions made by Council in the Final Ten Year Plan 2009-2019, set 30 June 2009, included:
- Introducing a Tourism Targeted Rate of $137.21 (including GST) to be charged as a flat rate on tourism related businesses. The total funding provided by Council to Nelson Tasman Tourism will be equivalent to last year, plus inflation.
- Agreeing to the formation of a Holding Company to hold Council’s share of the assets in Port Nelson Ltd, Nelson Airport Ltd, and Tourism Nelson Tasman Ltd.
- Providing for a new storage facility for the Tasman Bays Heritage Trust to store Provincial Museum assets at a cost to Council of $60,000.
- Amending the Development Contributions Policy, which means that the contribution reduces from a maximum of $22,948 per unit to $20,394. The contribution for roading will be $5,034.
- Bringing forward the public passenger transport service funding into 2009/10 for transport between Richmond and Nelson, but reducing the amount of funding and the level of the service provided.
- Changing the roading programme of works to bring forward the cycleways in the vicinity of the Ruby Bay Bypass, and seal extensions in Eighty-Eight Valley road and Gibbs Valley Road.
- Including the Motueka reticulated water supply project subject to a satisfactory Government subsidy being received.
- Including the Lower Motueka flood control proposal but subject to further public consultation on the design and timing of the project, prior to approval to proceed with the re-construction of the stopbank. As part of the consultation process the Council will consider the affordability on the Motueka community of the combined impact of the Motueka water supply and stopbank projects.
- Agreeing to provide the Takaka central business district with a fire fighting water supply and to consult with the Takaka community on whether to extend the fire fighting water supply to a fully reticulated community supply subject to receiving a Government subsidy. This change was at the request of the Golden Bay Community Board and others from Golden Bay.
- Deleting the proposal for a multi-bin kerbside recycling and waste collection service. Agreeing to explore recycling and waste management options, including maintaining a mix of private and Council contracted services, through the review of Council’s Waste Management and Minimisation Plan.
- While noting the Council’s support for a rowing and watersport course proposed at Rabbit Island, funding has been removed from the Plan while a feasibility study is undertaken. Council has shown a willingness to re-consider funding the proposal subject to the results of the feasibility study.
- Adding in funding for some of the numerous community projects asked for by individuals and community groups.
A draft Ten Year plan is produced after initial consultation with a range of stakeholders and community groups. The draft plan is released to the public and open to public submissions and hearings.
The Draft Ten Year Plan 2009-2019 was released 23 March 2009.
The Council also prepared a 17 Settlements document as supplementary information to the draft Ten Year Plan, to make it easier for people to find out what is happening in their local area.
