About the plan
The Long Term Plan 2021-2031 is our key strategic planning document. It outlines our activities and priorities for the next ten years, and how we will pay for them.
The key areas where sought feedback included:
- climate change and sustainability
- rating options - how shall we pay for what we need?
- revitalisation of our city centre - changes to James Street and John Street
- funding for event facilities - where to allocate this budget?
The Long Term Plan also proposes a major boost to transportation funding over the 10 years of the plan.
