Expansion on track
Today s ground-breaking ceremony for
stage one of the National Training
Centre, which is part of the $40 million
Millennium Institute expansion, has
been postponed due to this week s
earthquake in Christchurch.
The expansion will effectively double
the size of the Mairangi Bay facility
and provide New Zealand s top
athletes with a world-class place to
train. The first stage should be com-
pleted by February next year in time
for athletes building up to the London
Olympics to make the most of the high-
Millennium Institute chief executive
Mike Stanley says some of the new
features could be in use by August this
With the Olympics so close, we re
very concious that we can t afford to
disrupt the athletes preparation with
work on the expansion project.
The Millennium Institute will be
operating throughout the construction
period -- there will be no closures -- and
our aim is to minimise disruption to
members and athletes, he says.
It will be operated by AUT Millen-
nium Trust -- a 50-50 partnership
between AUT University and the Mil-
Maori Statutory Board budget divides
By JODEAL CADACIO
Auckland Council did the right
thing slashing the multi-million dol-
lar budget for the Maori Statutory
Board, Shore councillor George
The council s strategy and finance
committee originally voted for a $5
million budget over about two years
when it met under urgency at a
meeting closed to the public.
This month the council trimmed
down the budget to $950,000.
The nine-member board was
established after the government
rejected Maori seats on the council.
It became controversial when it was
revealed members would appoint
other unelected Maori members to
11 of the council s 18 committees.
Although he batted for an even
lower budget of $850,000, Mr Wood
says the cuts were good. He also
welcomes the board s move to seek a
declaratory judgement about the
But Awataha Marae spokesman
Anthony Wilson is concerned the
budget cut will undermine the
It seems to us that the statutory
board is being set up to fail, he
says. The budget cut has the poten-
tial to undermine the power of that
board to do a good job.
Mr Wilson says Maori represen-
tation in the council harks back to
the findings of the Royal Com-
mission on Auckland Governance.
A lot of people don t understand
that Maori and iwi partners have
special rights under the Resource
Management Act, under many acts,
and it s not issue of privilege.
Auckland Council has released its
Draft Annual Plan 2011/2012.
It sets out the council's plans for the year 1 July 2011 to 30 June 2012,
and the budget required to make them happen.
It outlines Auckland Council's proposal to undertake $773 million worth
of capital works in 2011/2012, and spend $1.8 billion on providing
services. It's your rates that help pay for council projects in your local
area and across the region, making Auckland a great place to live.
Soon you will find a summary of the draft annual plan in your
letterbox, which includes a freepost feedback form. We are interested
to hear your feedback on the draft annual plan along with amendments
we are proposing to our long-term plan.
