Ten Year Plan: 2009 - 2019

The 2009 - 2019 Ten Year Plan is superceded by the 2012 - 2022 Ten Year Plan adopted by Council on 27 June 2012.

What you can expect from us over the next decade

The Council's Ten Year Plan sets out what it plans to do over the next ten years, how much it will cost and how it will be funded. On 30 June 2010, the Council decided to amend the Ten Year Plan adopted last year to provide for the transfer of control and ownership of the Waikawau Recreational Reserve. The process for how this will be managed will be determined at a later stage.

The Ten Year Plan includes four documents:

  • Summary 
    A short overview of the Ten Year Plan
  • Volume One 
    Detailed plans and costs for the next ten years
  • Volume Two 
    A number of policies and statements which support these plans.
  • Ten Year Plan Amendment 
    The transfer of control and ownership of the Waikawau Recreational Reserve (developed in alignment with the 2010/2011 Annual Plan).

Submissions Received

The Council received a number of submissions to its Ten Year Plan in February 2009 and Ten Year Plan amendment in February/March 2010.

Submissions received on the Ten Year Plan amendment are included with the 2010/2011 Annual Plan pages.

We are required, by legislation, to develop a Long Term Plan (LTP), which is to be revised every three years.

At this Council, we call the LTP the "ten year plan", which is the document that sets out the activities and services that we intend to provide for a period covering a minimum of ten years. This allows us to take a long-term view of our responsibilities while enabling us to adjust for changing financial factors and keep budgets up-to-date.

We are required to carry out consultation prior to the adoption of the plan.

The Ten Year plan is the basis for the Annual Plan and is the basis upon which the Council sets rates.


What is a Ten Year Plan?

The Local Government Act 2002 states that all Councils must produce a Ten Year Plan (to be revised every 3 years).The Plan is to ensure the Council is

  • providing a long-term focus for the decisions and activities of the local authority
  • provides integrated decision-making and co-ordination of the resources of the local authority
  • provides an opportunity for participation by the public in decision-making processes on activities to be undertaken by the local authority
