Long Term Plan (LTP)

This page contains information about our Long Term Plan.
Updated: 12/06/2018 11:44 a.m.

The Local Government Act 2002 (LGA) requires every council to produce a Long-Term Plan (LTP) every three years.

The LTP outlines our activities and priorities for the next ten years, providing a long-term focus for decision-making. It also explains how work will be scheduled and funded.

Under the LGA LTPs must be reviewed every three years with full consultation with the public each time. An Annual Plan is developed in the years in between.

The next Long Term Plan

Community involvement in the District's 10-year-plan kicked off early for the 2018-28 LTP. In addition to formal consultation we ran early engagement with communities. 

Council took this approach to get a better picture of what the community wanted before we developed the draft plan.

Earlier engagement gave us time to consider projects, costs and options and review existing asset management plans and work programmes to better inform the LTP process.

Formal consultation period is now closed. It closed on Sunday 8 April 2018.

You can see what has been proposed in the Consultation Document, the concurrent consultations and the detail that supports it. To find out more follow the links below:
