Notes to variances:

  1. After an unsuccessful trial period, Council has agreed not to replace the current public rubbish bin system, which was originally expected to provide savings of $500k per annum. Additionally, $350k is due to the redevelopment of the Lyall Bay Surf Club, which will now be funded by the use of prior year surpluses. Budget increased by $100k for the maintenance of the Pukeahu National War Memorial.
  2. Increased cost of this activity attracts a higher allocation of corporate overheads.
  3. Reduced budget in 2015/16 due to the completion in 2014/15 of renovations to the caretaker's house at Otari-Wilton's Bush, and refurbishment of the baithouse at Greta Point.

  2. Funding for the Smart Energy Capital initiative has moved to this activity from Activity 1.1, and has been extended past the original 3-year funding period.
  3. Increase due to a change of timing of renewals creating a higher level of scheduled asset replacements in 2015/16.

Notes to variances:

  1. Water network costs have reduced resulting in funding required from collection of water rates.
  2. Greater Wellington Regional Council bulk water charges have increased 5% from last year's budget.
  3. The availability and use of improved asset information and asset management systems, these systems have resulted in better informed renewals spend. This has changed the timing of the asset replacement programme.
