Last year the Council, after consulting with our community, adopted the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan (LTP). Now that we are in the second year of the LTP, there are additional matters about which we want to hear your thoughts.
The Council is seeking your views on its draft 2019/20 Annual Plan.
The Annual Plan describes the activities of Council and provides a basis for accountability of those activities to the community. The Annual Plan builds on the decisions included in the Long Term Plan 2018-2028 (LTP), which set out the Council’s plan for that ten year period.
Council’s top priorities for 2019/20 were signalled in the LTP and this year’s draft Annual Plan continues to giving effect to them. They include:
Our projected average rate increase, excluding the ‘opt-in’ kerbside refuse collection service, is 4.5%. That compares to 4.3% signalled in last year’s LTP.
Rate increases for individual properties across the District will vary depending on the services received by the property and the extent of new upgrades needed to water, sewer or drainage systems in those areas. Accordingly, some properties’ rate increase will be more than 4.5% and for others it will be less.
To find out how this will affect you visit the Rates Finder.
While the priorities noted above were confirmed during the LTP, the Council is keen to hear the community’s views on the following proposals:
