The 2018-2028 Long Term Plan

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.

In March 2018 Council released the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan Consultation Document for public consultation. Council then deliberated on public feedback prior to releasing a final copy of the full LTP.

Our 2018 -2028 Long Term Plan was adopted by Council in June 2018. It covers the period 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2028, and remains current until the new LTP is adopted in June 2021.
