RiverLink Financial Clarifications

Matthew Young made this Official Information request to Hutt City Council

Response to this request is delayed. By law, Hutt City Council should normally have responded promptly and by (details and exceptions)

From: Matthew Young

Dear Hutt City Council,

At an open Council briefing on the RiverLink project on 27 January officers indicated their intention to request an additional $9.8M in funding for the RiverLink project (bringing the total to be sought to $111M from a current budget of $50-60M) but noted that this would be offset by $6.5M in capital subsidies from Waka Kotahi.

Can you please confirm;

1) The total confirmed funding for the RiverLink project in Hutt City Council's 2020-21 Annual Plan.
2) What the $6.5M of capital subsidies from Waka Kotahi is tagged for (i.e. will be required to be spent on) and;
3) Whether receiving the $6.5M of capital subsidies from Waka Kotahi is contingent on HCC approving the latest budget increase request of $9.8M.

Additionally, for many years reporting to this Council noted that a new Bus Interchange and Connections remained an unfunded part of the project. Can you please confirm whether this will now be a funded part of the project with a full budget now being requested.
Can you please also confirm which of the partner agencies is taking the lead on the Bus Interchange element of the project.

Thanks,
Matt Young

Dear Euan and Kara,

Thanks for this response. When I asked for RiverLink funding in the 2020-21 AP this was intentional, can I please be given a response to this.

Can you also specifically answer the question as to 'whether receiving the $6.5M of capital subsidies from Waka Kotahi is contingent on HCC approving the latest budget increase request of $9.8M.' In other words a) yes it is contingent or b) no it is not contingent.
This is important as the current response does not directly answer the question.

Thanks again,
Matt Young
