What exactly is a Long Term Plan?

Really simply, the Long Term Plan (LTP) is a roadmap outlining what your Council wants to achieve and how it will be funded over the next 10 years. It outlines the activities, services, and projects we intend on delivering, and determines when, where and how we will deliver them.

It’s time for a check in. By law, the Long Term Plan must be reviewed every three years, and the last LTP was reviewed in 2021. Plenty has changed since then, Cyclone Gabrielle, changes to our Covid-19 response, high cost of living - certainly time for a fresh look.

Think of this consultation document, as a condensed version of the Long Term Plan. We use this opportunity to get your input on key issues, so that we can shape our decisions together.

The 2024-2034 Long Term Plan will come into operation from July 2024.
