Property Council has been invited to take part in a Government’s reference group as part of the Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ) funding review.
Last week we have attended the first meeting where we discussed a broad range of topics to help the Government make an informed decision around a future funding model for emergency services.
This includes the Government’s work around climate change and how it aligns with the FENZ review work programme; Crown contribution; options for one-off charging; contributions for different types of transports; capturing non-insurers; operational capability costs and many others.
Following the reference group meeting, we had a great opportunity to meet with the Minister of Internal Affairs, Hon Jan Tinetti to further discuss how the FENZ model can be improved. We had a constructive discussion and hope our suggestions and recommendations will be taken on board to ensure the delivery of positive outcomes for all.
