SWDC adopts Long Term Plan 2021-31
Released: Monday 5 July 2021
South Waikato District Council adopted its Long Term Plan 2021-31 by unanimous vote on Wednesday 30 June.
This is the culmination of over 18 months of work which has involved all of our Elected Members and a large number of staff, especially section heads and management.
The plan contains some major pieces of work in it for us to achieve which is very exciting - all set in the context of significant community input and engagement.
“The next three years are going to be a period of huge change and components of the LTP have helped prepare for this change and the potential for an evolving role for Local Government,” said Ben Smit, Council’s Chief Executive.
“Adopting the plan takes all of about two minutes which in no way reflects the 18 months of countless hours by Elected Members and staff,” said Mayor Jenny Shattock.
“My personal thank you to all my Councillors for their effort and the considerable time they have put into attending well over ten full or half day workshops over the period; and to staff who prepare the numbers, plan the process, ensure we adhere to requirements, write and re-write documents and content, keep the process on track and innumerable other tasks necessary to achieve an LTP, my sincere thank you.”
The Long Term Plan 2021-31 and all aligned policies, including Fees and Charges are now available on Council’s website.
ENDS. Words: 234
