Long Term Plan (LTP)

Tētahi mahere roa

Every three years the Council must adopt a Ten Year Plan and in the years between Council adopts Annual Plans. This is the blueprint for investment in the district's infrastructure and services over the next ten years.

The plan affects every single person in our district and is prepared in consultation with our residents and ratepayers, outlining a proposed work plan and how we propose to fund it. Consultation is undertaken in line with the requirements of the Local Government Act 2002 and wider engagement on key topics aim to ensure everyone gets to know what's being considered, what the options are, and how they can have their say. 

2024-2034 Long Term Plan

Council is preparing a draft Long Term Plan 2024-2034 in a challenging context.

Everything we do costs more to deliver. Civil construction costs are up by 27% and like everyone, we’re grappling with high inflation, interest rates, insurance and compliance costs. Growth challenges are opportunities also bring more costs.

We know we need to keep delivering for our communities and make sure we’re ready for the future. The draft plan we’ll present to the community focuses on getting the basics right first.

The LTP will set out Council’s proposed workplan for the next ten years, how we propose to pay for it and what it means for the rates you pay.

Submissions are expected to open on 28 June. This is a plan that affects everyone, so keep your eyes peeled for more information coming soon and have your say.
