Council adopts Long Term Plan 2018 - 2028

28 June 2018

"Steady as we grow"

Western Bay of Plenty District Council has today adopted its Long Term Plan (LTP) 2018 – 2028.

The plan sets an average rates increase of 2.7 percent for existing ratepayers across the ten years of the LTP (of which inflation accounts for 2.3 percent). The increase for the 2018/19 year is 3.6 percent (of which inflation accounts for 2.0 percent).

Recap

This time around, the Long Term Plan has occurred in three community engagement stages:

  1. The first set the agenda (phase 1 'community conversations' May to July 2017)
  2. The second checked back in using a set of four themes (phase 2 'are we on the same page' September to October 2017)
  3. The third and final tests the specific proposals for the plan (phase 3 'consultation on the proposals' March to May 2018) .

What are we engaging on in this third and final phase?

Council has prepared your Consultation Document for feedback. There are four key proposals:
