Annual Plan 2017/2018 consultation

Use the form on this page to comment on the three issues we are consulting the public about as we prepare our Annual Plan 2017/2018.

Two years ago we consulted widely on a 10-year plan to take us through to 2025. We’re still on track with this long-term plan, but are proposing changes to three of our programmes in the 2017/2018 financial year:

  • An exciting and potentially game-changing trial of enhanced predator control techniques in the region, leveraging off local and national initiatives.
  • A new flood control scheme for Opunake.
  • Replacement of The Lodge as part of the upgrade of Pukeiti.

Financially, the development of the changes is relatively minor. With all three proposals included in the 2017/2018 Annual Plan, general rates will go up 1% as opposed to the 0.5% rise forecast for 2017/2018 in the 2015/2025 Long-Term Plan.

The deadline for submissions is 4pm on Thursday 13 April 2017 (the Thursday before Easter).
