Explanatory memorandum

Note: the following explanatory memorandum should be read in conjunction with the explanatory memorandum(s) appended to:

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

This determination comes into force on 1 July 2016 and expires on the close of 30 June 2017.

Under the system used by the Authority for local government elected members, the Authority sets a base councillor rate for each council and councils can make submissions on the additional remuneration for those councillors undertaking additional duties. Under the system, a relationship between the size of a council (measured using a size index) and mayor, chairperson, and base councillor salaries is determined every 3 years in election year. A similar approach is used to set the remuneration of community board members, where the remuneration of each community board is related to its population.

The Authority undertook a review of the remuneration framework for local government during 2015, including job sizing the positions of a representative group of councils and assessing workloads. The Authority found clear evidence regarding the size of positions but has less confidence in the evidence relating to workload.

Given that uncertainty, the Authority has not proceeded to fully or partially implement increases that would in many cases have been well in excess of 10%. It has instead applied increases to the base remuneration payable to councillors ranging from 1.5% to 3% depending on the size of the council. These reflect at the higher level the movements in public sector remuneration more generally.

The Authority also adjusted upwards the amount of money available for councils to spend to recognise members undertaking additional duties. These modest increases reflect the Authority’s concern that the local government sector continues to be under considerable pressure to restrain expenditure and rate movements.

However, the Authority is also concerned that the expectations placed on local representatives continue to increase and remuneration does not in all circumstances reflect the skill and effort required from members. It will therefore begin further work this year to establish an ongoing basis for remuneration that treats both the ratepayer and the elected member fairly.

Minor amendments are also made to some allowances to reflect submissions made to the Authority.

Note: the preceding explanatory memorandum should be read in conjunction with the explanatory memorandum(s) appended to:

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 30 June 2016.
