Long Term Plans

Our Long Term Plan sets out Council's financial priorities for a period of 10 years, and is updated every three years.

What is a Long Term Plan?

Our Long Term Plan (LTP) sets the direction we’re heading for the next 10 years and provides a long-term focus for decision making. It outlines all the services and projects we’re planning, what they’re going to cost and how we’ll fund them (including what rates increases are likely to be for the next ten years).

To accommodate change Council also develops an Annual Plan in year two and three of the LTP and produces a LTP every three years. 

Input from our communities into the process is important to help us meet our community’s expectations and deliver the services and projects it wants.

Our current LTP is for 2021-31 and the next LTP will be adopted in 2024.
