Our Long Term Plan (previously called Ten Year Plans) sets out Council's financial priorities for a period of 10 years, and is updated every three years. We are required, by legislation, to develop a Long Term Plan (LTP), which is to be revised every three years. What is a Long Term Plan? The Local Government Act 2002 states that all Councils must produce a Long Term Plan (to be revised every 3 years). The Plan is to ensure the Council: Provides a long-term focus for the decisions and activities of the local authority Provides integrated decision-making and co-ordination of the resources of the local authority Provides an opportunity for participation by the public in decision-making processes on activities to be undertaken by the local authority In this section Long Term Plan 2021-2031 Long Term Plan 2018 - 2028 Long Term Plan 2015 - 2025 Ten Year Plan: 2012 - 2022 Our Long Term Plan allows us to take a long-term view of our responsibilities while enabling us to adjust for changing financial factors and keep budgets up-to-date. We are required to carry out consultation prior to the adoption of the plan.
