Annual and long term plans

Every three years the Council develops a long term plan, with annual plans in the years in between.  Our current plan is our long term plan for 2018-38, below.  Check our previous annual and long term plan page for earlier plans.

The 2019 annual plan development process is underway and the plan will be adopted by 1 July 2019. Read more about developing the plan here.
