Annual Report 2019/20

Nau mai ki tā mātou tirohanga rāpopoto o te tau 2019/20.
Welcome to our summary of the 2019/20 year.

Each year, local authorities are required to present an annual report that includes a set of audited financial statements. Our Annual Report 2019/20 was adopted by Council on 16 December 2020.

The kaupapa (theme) for this year’s report is based on the whakataukī, kia whakatōmuri te haere whakamua, which speaks to Māori perspectives of time, where the past, the present and the future are viewed as intertwined, and life as a continuous cosmic process. The past is central to and shapes both present and future identity. 

In an unusual year, we must reflect on the challenges and opportunities we faced and be strong in leading our city forward into our Long-term Plan review in 2020/21. We do not simply want to return to life before COVID-19 or ignore our infrastructure and resilience challenges – we want to create a better city fit for the future. From this perspective, the we will carry the past events into the future as a strong foundation for success.
