Long Term Plan 2024 - 2034
Our Long Term Plan (LTP) sets the direction for all the activities and services we provide, and how the Council will pay for these services over the next 10 years.
Through the Letter of Expectations (adopted by Council 5 April 2023) the Mayor and Councillors set out their expectations to inform the work staff will undertake to support development of the LTP 2024 – 2034. This makes clear Councillors’ expectations around LTP content – the major strategic issues that the LTP needs to address, and provides clarity and certainty to both governance and staff around how the LTP process will unfold, including joint development. An overall view of the LTP key milestones and timeline is available here.
Long Term Plan Council briefings
On this page you can find recordings of the Council briefings that are taking place while the LTP is being developed.
From inflation to supply chain issues, there are a number of challenges facing the city as we head into the next decade. The briefings give the Council a chance to work through these topics with staff and develop a plan that delivers the level of service our residents need while keeping rates down.
The schedule of LTP joint development briefings - updated as of 2 November 2023 throughout the latter half of 2023 is available here (timings subject to change).
