Operations, Maintenance and Capital Expenditure Projections The peaks in planned capital new expenditure around the 2009 to 2013 period includes the anticipated replacement of Casuarina Pool in a joint venture with Charles Darwin University. This is expected to cost Darwin City Council around $10 million. It is anticipated that the pool will partly be funded through the sale of the existing Casuarina Pool land and the rest funded through borrowings. In this same period it is expected that $22.4 million dollars will be required for the construction of a multi-level carpark in Cavenagh Street which will be funded through reserves and borrowings. The peak in planned capital new expenditure in 2015 is due to the anticipated redevelopment of Nightcliff Pool which is expected to cost around $15 million. At this stage it is expected that this will be funded through grants and borrowings. The peak in projected capital renewal expenditure in 2015 mainly makes allowance for possible renewals of road assets and various building assets that includes the old Telstra Building in Mitchell Street. The significant peak around 2027 recognises that the Civic Centre and West Lane Carpark are expected to be at the end of their useful lives and are likely to require significant redevelopment or replacement around that time. In financial terms, a gap between projected and planned renewals gives an indication as to whether assets are being adequately maintained and renewed as they reach the end of their useful lives. The purpose of this asset management plan is to provide an indication of the levels of service that the community needs and can afford and to develop the necessary long term financial plans to provide this level of service in a sustainable manner. Figures 13 and 14 show the projected asset renewals in the 10 and 20 year planning periods from the asset registers. This identifies a possible renewal/rehabilitation
