Long-Term Plans

Every three years we develop a 10 year plan which sets out our direction and work programme. It lets you know what we will be doing - the services we will provide and the projects we will undertake, how much it costs, how we intend to pay for it, and how we will measure quality and our effectiveness.

The issues we face and the context within which we work are continually evolving. For this reason, a Long-Term Plan is produced every three years.

Our current LTP was adopted by Council on 30 June 2021. Visit ItsOurPlace.nz to see the feedback we received on our draft plan.
