Long Term Plan (LTP)

The Long Term Plan is “the big one” – it outlines all the services and projects we’re planning for the next ten years, what they’re going to cost, and how we’ll fund them (including what rates increases are likely to be for the next ten years).

Council is required to produce and update a Long Term Plan (LTP) every three years. This plan must be reviewed every three years, with an Annual Plan developed on the years in between. The LTP outlines Council’s activities for the next ten years, providing a long-term focus for decision making.

Council approved the 2024-34 Long Term Plan on 3 July 204.
