Draft Annual Plan

​​​​Welcome to our Draft Annual Plan 2019/2020 (Draft Plan), which is based on year two of the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan. A Draft Plan maps out Council’s proposed services and projects for the next 12 months. It also outlines the performance targets Council strives to achieve for each group of activities.

In the consultation document we have summarised the key issues we are addressing, our proposed projects and funding which has been included in our budgets, projects which have not been included, the proposed rates for the next year and our financial position. More detailed information can be found in the full Draft Plan.

Please take the opportunity to have a read of both the consultation document and full Draft Plan and then have your say. This is your chance to have an input into the future of your town and help ensure it is a progressive, sustainable area where people want to live, work, play and invest in.​
