2020-2021 Annual Plan Consultation (closed)

The Annual Plan 2020-21 Consultation Document is about the changes we have made to Year 3 of our Long Term Plan 2018-28 in response to COVID-19. This includes a proposal to reduce the overall General Rate rise to 2.2% (inflation), and provide $3m in targeted relief. We are also seeking extra funding from central government.

The aim of these measures is to soften the economic blow delivered by COVID-19, and provide extra support to the District as it works to recover.

About the Annual Plan Process

The Annual Plan sets out Council's budget and how it will finance the activities and services that will be provided for the upcoming financial year.

It focuses on any adjustments Council may wish to make in light of the previous year’s financial performance, updated financial figures, cost increases and inflation as well as resource requirements and availability.

It allows Council to take into account any new issues and to review progress towards the ten year objectives as set by the Long Term Plan.
