    The Draft Annual Business Plan has been developed within an overall planning framework which sets the strategic directions for the Council over the medium and long term and converts these into annual actions and outputs.

    We are proposing to carry out $82 million of capital works in 2017/18. View the Draft Annual Business Plan Projects Infographic here.

    For 2017/18 the adopted LTFP forecasts we require a total rates increase of 2.7% (plus growth or forecast new properties of 1.2%) to fund the high-level parameters for the core service levels, projects and capital expenditure projected for 2017/18.

    This year, we have developed a wide range of ways you can have a say including the Budget Webinar live online Q&A. Go here for more information.
