2021-2031 Long Term Plan

Council is currently working on its Long Term Plan (LTP) for the 2021 - 2031 period. The LTP document is Council’s most important planning tool, it sets out what we plan to do over the next decade - and how we intend to pay for it. It includes detailed information on the activities, services and projects we intend on delivering and when. 

The plan we are putting in place sets us up to be a Thriving, Connected and Resilient Grey District.​


The Draft Long Term Plan 2021-2031 is now out for public submissions. Please read the Consultation Document below and have your say.
