Help influence the future of our district

Add to favourites

Every three years Council produces a Long Term Plan (LTP). This plan looks closely at the first three years and then takes a more general view of the outlying seven years.

The most recent LTP was produced in 2018 and looks to 2028. Council will repeat this process in 2021 and that LTP will look out ten years to 2031.

What's on your mind?

Throughout October and November 2020 we want to hear what’s front of mind for you. What do you feel are key issues for our district going forward? What should be a priority in the next Long Term Plan? Your input influences how Council thinks about issues when planning ahead.

In the lead up to Council preparing the draft LTP and adopting the final there will be a number of ways you can lend your voice to the process. We encourage you to be part of the conversation.
