Long Term Plan consultation

The Long Term Plan is a document that covers the work Council and the community have agreed we want to achieve together over the next ten years. It puts the work on a timeline and outlines where the money will come from to do this work.

We produce a new draft of the Long Term Plan every three years to keep it up to date and to reflect the community’s changing wants and needs.

We then consult with the community, asking for their preferred options on specific topics and for feedback on these key topics or other points raised in the consultation documentation.
