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.
If you would like a copy of any previous plans, please contact us.
Formal consultation on the Long Term Plan 2018/2028 starts in March 2018. This is when you will see what has been proposed in the Consultation Document and the detail that supports it. We will do 'drop in sessions' across the District to discuss the Consultation Document with you and encourage you to make a submission. If you would like to tell us what you think about the document directly, you can attend an event and we will record your feedback. You can also choose to present your submission to Council by selecting that option in the submission form, and you can submit via our online portal (which will be active from March 05 2018).
These dates and times are subject to Council adopting the Consultation Document at their meeting February 28 2018.
Presentations will be held at the following locations (venue details and times will be updated when finalised):
We will be adding more dates and times (including weekends and evening sessions across the district).
