Explanatory memorandum

This memorandum is not part of the determination, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This determination comes into force, in relation to each local authority and community board, on the date on which the successful candidates for each local authority or community board come into office after the local body elections to be held in late 2007. The determination expires on 30 November 2007, but (under the provisions of the Remuneration Authority Act 1977) will continue in force, in relation to each local authority and community board, until the local authority has decided on its new structure and recommended to the Remuneration Authority (the Authority) how its remuneration pool should be divided and the Authority has made a new determination for the final salaries, meeting fees (if applicable), and schedules of allowances and expenses for the local authority and relevant community boards. Therefore, this determination will apply only for a short interim period (the interim period).

Under this determination, the Authority has determined specified salaries payable to elected officials. No meeting fees are payable during the interim period.

At the end of the interim period, once a new determination has been made for a local authority and the relevant community boards, it is proposed that salaries will be backdated for—

  • a deputy mayor or deputy chair of a regional council, from the date of appointment:

  • chairpersons of committees and other specified positions, from the date of appointment:

  • community board members, if new community boards have been established:

  • any chairpersons or deputy chairpersons of community boards, from the date of appointment:

  • councillors and community board members, from the date they come into office.

In this determination, a deduction for private use of vehicles has been factored into the salaries payable to chairpersons of regional councils and to mayors at the rate currently applicable.


Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.
