Annual Plan 2017/2018 consultation document and source documents


Council would like to hear from you about the Annual Plan for 2017/2018.  This year’s Annual Plan is providing some good news for ratepayers.  While there are no significant changes from the third year of the Long Term Plan 2015/2025, the average rates increase is proposed to be lower than we stated in the Plan.  Instead of 3.65% on average increase, the proposed average increase will be 2.65%.

We do not need to go through a formal consultation process for this year’s plan, with submissions and hearings.  This is because amendments to the Local Government Act 2002 recognise that often Annual Plans are not significantly different to what was consulted on in the Long Term Plan process.  Therefore it does not make sense to consult again on plans already contained in the Long Term Plan 2015/2025. However, we do want to know your thoughts on the small, but good, changes that are proposed.  Instead, we are asking for your feedback, which will be considered as part of finalising the Annual Plan 2017/2018. 

Please submit your feedback on our consultation document via our online feedback form (use link on right).  We also invite you to attend one of our roundtables in April to meet your newly elected Councillors to further discuss the consultation document.

Roundtable locations and times are as follows:

  • Mana Whenua Forum Annual Plan Hui - Northern Wairoa War Memorial Hall (Dargaville Town Hall - Hokianga Road) - Tuesday 28 March - 10.00am

If you cannot make the roundtables, please give feedback online or collect a feedback form from Council offices in Dargaville or Mangawhai.

The period to give feedback closes at 4:30pm on Tuesday 18 April 2017.
