The Council is currently preparing its Draft Annual Plan 2019/20 which will outline its work programme and budgets for the 2019/20 year.

This will be the first Annual Plan following the adoption in 2018 of the Long-Term Plan 2018-2028, which sets out the detailed 10-year blueprint for the Council’s activities.

If the work programme and budgets outlined in the Draft Annual Plan 2019/20 are generally consistent with what was signalled in the Long-Term Plan, with no significant changes, then it will not be necessary for the Council to consult on the Draft Annual Plan. However we would still provide information for residents and ratepayers about major projects scheduled for the coming year, and the planned changes in rates.

More information on the Draft Annual Plan will be available in April.
