Annual Plan 2019-20
Developing the 2019-20 annual plan
There is lots of information that will guide the future annual plan for 2019-20, along with the current plan for 2018-19 in toitu Kāpiti on our Kapiti 2038 long term plan pages.
We’ll continue to add information to this page as the 2019-20 plan is developed between now and when it starts on 1 July 2019. Read the mayor's media advisory about the start of the process.
What is an annual plan?
It’s a document that outlines Council’s budget and all its services for the coming year.
It’s where any budget changes from the long term plan are identified, for example, where funding may need to be reprioritised because of changes in the operating environment.
What has happened so far?
Councillors kicked off the process at a workshop discussion with staff on 14 February. This workshop revisited what plans were agreed for 2019/20 during the toitu Kāpiti 2018-2038 consultation in 2018. They formally agreed the draft content of the plan at the Council meeting of 14 March.
This talks about where budget will be allocated and to what parts of the Council's work programmes and the community can make comments for Council to consider. There have been only small adjustments made since toitu Kāpiti 2018-38 long term plan was agreed in June 2018.
The guide also confirms what the planned work programme will mean for setting rates for the new financial year.
How will I hear about what's happening?
We'll let the community know the guide is ready so people can refresh their understanding of what we said we'd do in the long term plan for the 2019/20 financial year.
This information will be provided through our online and digital channels, like this website and Facebook and there'll be hard copies of material available in our service centres and libraries. There'll also be information in your local newspaper.
Council will adopt the annual plan towards the end of May ready for the start of the financial year on 1 July.
