8.2    PLANNING INSTITUTE OF AUSTRALIA AWARD

         l-r Zoe White, Darren Roche, Carmel Peacock; Sinclair Britton, Mayor Tom Tate, Cr Cameron Caldwell.
At the recent National Planning Institute of Australia (PIA) awards held on the Gold Coast on
15 May 2019, the City's Environment Planning and Natural Area Management teams were
successful in winning the award for Planning Excellence in the Improving Planning
Processes and Practices Category. The ‘Simplifying Offset Delivery’ project previously won
the Queensland award for this category, and was automatically nominated for the National
Award. The program competed against the winners of this category from the other State’s
and Territory’s, which the judges commended for their very high calibre.

Through the development of the external environmental offset program, the City of Gold
Coast is leading the industry in addressing the complexity of legislation surrounding
environmental offsets with their quantitative and qualitative approach. Environmental offsets
are a vitally important tool in maintaining and improving environmental values lost through
development and infrastructure delivery. The program simplifies the offset delivery process
for external entities, whilst ensuring that these environmental offsets are delivered within the
Gold Coast. To date, the program has facilitated the restoration of over 150,000 plants,
across 44.7 hectares of koala habitat, on behalf of external entities, with a further 2.4
hectares due to be planted early next year.

The award for excellence recognises the achievement of the City of Gold Coast in
demonstrating through innovation and collaboration, that complex problems can be
addressed to deliver widespread environmental benefits and efficiencies for industry.

5.2       Key Elements of the Revenue Policy

Rates and Charges

Council’s rate setting and charging structures are based on the following principles, where
applicable:

         Equity – ensuring the fair and consistent application of lawful rating and charging
          principles, without bias, taking account of all relevant considerations.
         Effectiveness/Efficiency – meeting the financial, social, economic, and
          environmental, and other corporate objectives stated in Council’s Corporate Plan and
          other adopted policies; and
         Simplicity – to ensure widespread community or stakeholder understanding of a
          complex system.
         Sustainability - revenue decisions support the financial strategies for the Continued
          delivery of infrastructure and services identified in Council's long term planning.

These principles apply to the following activities:

         making rates and charges;
         levying rates and charges;
         recovering rates and charges;
         granting and administering rates and charges concessions;
         charging for local government services and facilities;
         charging for competitive services and facilities;
         charging for business services and facilities (subject to National Competition Policy);
         funding Council infrastructure;
         imposing cost-recovery fees.

In making all rates and charges Council will have regard to:

         transparency - to inform the community of the basis of those rates and charges and
          hence Council’s accountability;
         creating a rating regime that is cost effective to administer;
         flexibility - taking account of changes in the local economy.

Deferments

Council may defer payment of specific rates to assist those pensioners (as defined in
Council’s Pensioner Rates Rebate Policy) and Seniors Card holders who are owner-
occupiers of their principal place of residence until their circumstances change or the
property ownership changes. Rates available for deferment are:
        The differential general rate or part thereof in an ongoing capacity, and/or
        All rates and charges at a point in time where the eligible ratepayers may seek a one-
         off deferment as the account is being considered for Sale of Land action under the
         Local Government Regulations.

Instalments

Council may agree to allow the payment of rates and charges by instalments upon terms
consistent with its Debt Recovery Policy as determined from time to time.

Recovery of Rates and Charges

Council will exercise its rate recovery powers to reduce the overall rate burden on
ratepayers, in which respect,

        It will ensure transparency by making clear the obligations of ratepayers and the
         processes used by Council in assisting them meet their financial obligations;
        It will make the processes used to recover outstanding rates and charges simple to
         administer and cost-effective;
        It will critically evaluate the prospects of success before undertaking recovery action,
         to minimise prospective wastage of its resources in pursuit of irrecoverable money;
        It will act consistently, to provide the similar treatment for ratepayers with similar
         circumstances; and
        It will be flexible by responding where necessary to changes in the local economy.

Community Service Obligations

S24 of the Local Government Regulation 2012 defines a community service obligation (CSO)
as an obligation that the local government imposes on a business entity to do something that
is not in the interests of the business entity to do. An example would be to provide certain
refuse services for community groups at no charge or to give a price concession to a specific
group of customers.

CSOs will be based on the agreed unit price and the estimated quantity to be provided. Each
CSO will be approved by Council and developed in accordance with the process for
establishing a Community Service Obligation.

The cost of carrying out the Community Service Obligations (less any revenue received from
performing the obligations) must be treated as revenue of the significant business activity.

13     STAKEHOLDER IMPACTS
The development of a Revenue Policy fulfils a statutory requirement and demonstrates good
corporate governance by making transparent the means by which Council intends to raise its
revenue and any conditions affecting that activity (e.g. Community Service Obligations). This
has benefits for both external and internal stakeholders.

14     TIMING
Adoption of the 2018-19 budget has been scheduled for 21 June 2018. The Revenue Policy
must be adopted by Council prior to the adoption of budget. The policy will take effect on 1
July 2018.

15     CONCLUSION

The adoption of the Revenue Policy 2019-20 will satisfy statutory requirements and provide
Council with a policy for the efficient management of its revenue activities in 2019-20.
