Long Term Plan 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.

The next Long Term Plan

If you’d like to receive notifications regarding the LTP please email haveyoursay@kaipara.govt.nz to be added to our contact list

Community involvement in the District’s 10-year-plan will be starting early for the 2018-28 LTP.

In addition to formal consultation which will take place in 2018, and issuing a Consultation Document to get community input on key issues and decisions, Council will be adding an extra step; early community engagement.

Council is taking this approach because we want to get a better picture of what the community wants before we develop the plan. It’s about gathering ideas, knowledge and information from our community and feeding that into the process early on. Earlier engagement will give us time to consider projects, costs and options and review existing asset management plans and work programmes to better inform the LTP process.
