Annual Plan 2017/18

Welcome to the third year of Waimakariri District Council’s Long Term Plan (LTP) 2015-2025 work programme and budgets, the Annual Plan 2017/18.

In 2017/18 our main priority continues to be the upgrade and maintenance of core infrastructure for water supply, wastewater and stormwater, ensuring the network remains resilient, safe and cost effective. This work programme is reflected in an average district wide rate increase of 3.95 percent. This is comparative to the 3.72 percent increase signalled for 2017/18 within Long Term Plan (LTP).

The third year of our LTP – Annual Plan 2017/18 is about making sure we continue to deliver on our commitment to maintain existing services, invest in required infrastructure renewal, and spend wisely on new infrastructure needed to support the anticipated further growth of the district.

We would like to thank those who took the time to submit and who came along to present their submission to the Council in person. It really is a great opportunity to contribute to the decision-making that affects our District.
