How much & on what?

How much & on what?


We are expecting our total spend in year 1 to be just under $97 million.


Here’s a breakdown by work area:



Environment

This group of activities works to achieve the sustainable use of our water, land, air and coast. It also includes protecting our unique biodiversity and implementing our regional pest plan. The delivery of our land and water framework is a priority and this makes up the majority of the spend increase in year 1, with a focus on increasing our science and monitoring capacity. Our biosecurity proposal and establishing a biodiversity monitoring programme accounts for further increases in this area. Wilding pine control spend has increased as well - this is covered by government grants.

$9,864,992 increase from 2020-21 budget



Safety and resilience

To ensure our communities are kept safe, we identify and monitor natural hazards, manage flood protection and drainage schemes, provide harbourmaster services, and support Otago Civil Defence and Emergency Management. While our flood protection and drainage schemes make up most of the expenditure in this area, there is also increased expenditure in years 1 and 2 for identifying and monitoring natural hazards and for climate change adaptation studies.

$1,339,643 increase from 2020-21 budget



Transport

We’re responsible for public transport in Otago and provide services in Dunedin and Queenstown. We offer the Total Mobility scheme to meet the needs of people unable to use public transport. We also facilitate wider transport projects in Otago. The increased expenditure spans both Dunedin and Queenstown services, with the latter including funding for business case work for improving the future services and associated infrastructure.

$3,642,410 increase from 2020-21 budget



Regional leadership

We have a responsibility to promote environmental, economic, social and cultural wellbeing across the region and engage and work in partnership with our partners and communities to do this. This group of activities also includes regional planning and regulatory service that provide elected leadership with an important lever to effect change in Otago. The increased spend is largely associated with a significant and required increase in staff to deliver a regulatory consenting activity that fits with Otago's needs. The increase also reflects more capacity for our regional planning activity.
