The next Annual Plan

A change in legislation has meant that councils are no longer required consult on annual plans when there no significant or material differences to the content of the Long Term Plan (LTP) for the relevant year.

Council will not be consulting on the 2017-18 Annual Plan because there are no significant changes to those matters already signalled in the LTP.

The 2017-18 Annual Plan will be adopted on or before 30 June 2018.

Instead Council will focus on "early community engagement" for the 2018-28 Long Term Plan and a comprehensive rates review.

The 2016-17 Annual Plan

This is the 2016-17 Annual Plan developed following consultation with, and feedback from, the community. It outlines minor changes made to Year Two of the LTP and a summary of general issues raised during the consultation process and how they will be addressed.

The 2016-17 Annual Plan can be described as a 'steady as you go' plan, featuring no major changes to the programme outlined for Year Two of the LTP.

The Annual Plan was adopted by Council on Tuesday 28 June 2016.
