Draft Annual Plan 2023/24 Consultation
Submissions on the Draft Annual Plan are now closed. The Annual Plan 2023- 2024 was adopted by Council on 29 June 2023. You can read the final plan here.
Thank you to everyone who made a submission and gave us feedback. Everyone who made a submission will receive a letter letting them know the outcome of their submission soon after the Annual Plan is adopted.
The Draft Annual Plan is Council’s updated plan for the coming financial year, setting out the work we are planning to undertake in your community over the next 12 months (1 July 2023 – 30 June 2024).
The Long-Term Plan was adopted 2 years ago (2021), during this period we have faced many challenges which have impacted our ability to achieve all the expected outcomes laid down in year three of the long-term plan. We now need to go back to the community and consult about what changes are being considered.
The biggest change being considered is the introduction of a Green Waste Charge, which will potentially impact those people utilising local Resource Centres to discard green waste. Do we make this a user pays service or add an annual general charge to our ratepayers?
The Annual Plan 2023/24 Consultation Document, available to view on this page under Key Documents, provides the key information and is the basis of consultation.
