In July 2020 Government committed an initial $761m to councils across New Zealand, to support investment across the economy, helping stimulate economic activity and jobs in the wake of Covid-19, and to support the objectives of the three waters services reforms.
To gain access to the stimulus package, councils needed to opt into a partnership process with Government to reform three waters service delivery arrangements. Hawke’s Bay’s councils did so in August, making them eligible to apply for $50m, allocated across the region as follows:
• Wairoa District Council $11.04m
• Napier City Council $12.51m
• Hastings District Council $15.36m
• Central Hawke’s Bay District Council $11.09m
Each council was required to submit a project plan detailing how the funds would be spent, with projects required to start before March 2021 and be completed by 30th March 2022 as per the conditions of the funding allocation.
Each of the four council’s plans were approved in November 2020, paving the way for a comprehensive package of critical projects to commence.
