Long Term Plan

​​​The Long Term Plan 2018-28 is currently active.

The Long Term Plan is a large document so we have broken it down into parts:

​​Fees and Charg​es 2018-19


Why does Council produce a Long Term Plan?

Every three years Council produces a Long Term Plan or 10 year plan. This plan looks closely at the first three years and then takes a more general view of the outlying seven years. We are required to do this under current government legislation, however it is also sound planning practice for an organisation such as a council.

The most recent Long Term Plan was produced in 2015 and looks to 2025. Council will repeat this process in 2018, looking out to 2028.

The focus of the Long Term Plan is the Council Strategy, which identifies what Council will focus on over the next 10 years. As such, the Long Term Plan also details a 10 year programme of Council activities, forecast expenditure and intended revenue sources. All district and regional Councils are required to have an audited Long Term Plan. The full Long Term Plan can be viewed by scrolling down.
