 Long Term Plan 2018-28

The Long Term Plan (LTP) is the way the Council can let the community know what it plans to do for the next 10 years when it comes to expenditure and infrastructure investment. It also outlines that infrastructure investment over the next 30 years. It’s how we let you know what work is going to be done , what services will be provided, what the rate impact is going to be and how much we will have to borrow to achieve the outcomes the Council wants to deliver.

The LTP is important because effectively it represents our commitment to the community about how we will spend the funds we have to make our communities better. So we are asking you to get involved and give us feedback. We really need to hear from you so that we can plan for a future that includes all of our community and provide you with all the services you need to be able to thrive now and in the future.
