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 t10 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.
Community involvement in the district’s 10-year-plan will be starting early for the LTP 2018/2028.
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 is 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.

Our Long Term Plan (LTP) 2015/2025 was adopted by Council in June 2015. It covers the period 01 July 2015 to 30 June 2025, and remains current until the new LTP is adopted in June 2018.
