Join us for our Long Term Plan drop-in sessions

Published on 20 October 2023

Our Long Term Plan (LTP) journey is underway, and we need your valuable input ahead of formal public consultation next year.

The LTP is a vital planning document as it’s our blueprint for the coming 10 years that provides us with a long-term focus for our decision making and budgeting. It sets out the projects and initiatives we will be investing in, when we’re planning to do the work, and how much it will cost.

We’re holding some informal Long Term Plan drop-in sessions from Thursday 26 October to Saturday 28 October, and we’d like to hear from you - our residents and ratepayers - about what you consider is important for our district.

This is a chance to chat with your elected members and Council staff to share with us what you believe should be the focus of our long-term planning, and what projects and amenities you'd like to see in our future.

We're still in the process of prioritising key projects, so this is a good time to give your input before we put our proposals formally in the new year.

How do I attend the online session?

Our online Microsoft Teams session is Friday 27 October, from 10 to 11am, for those who can’t attend in person to hear from Mayor Len and technical council staff on our LTP progress. We've created a meeting link - you don't need to install the Teams app to join this meeting.
