Draft Council Plan and Budget 2019/20

The Draft Council Plan 2017-2021 (2019/20 Actions) outlines the key projects and objectives Council wants to achieve over four years, with projects and services funded via the Draft Budget. Each year, we undertake a broad range of community consultation and engagement activities to support Council in setting these priorities. This year, this included:

  • A community indicators survey of 500 randomly selected telephone interviews
  • An online and paper based community indicators survey
  • Facebook Q&A online discussion.

Both Council and Council Officers carefully considered your feedback during the development of the Draft Council Plan and Budget, and this feedback shaped the development of key actions for 2019/20 and beyond. The Draft Council Plan includes further information on this engagement process and the feedback we received.

The Council Plan and Budget are expected to be formally adopted by Council 24 June 2019.

How to provide your feedback:

In accordance with section 129 of the Local Government Act 1989, public notice has been given that copies of the Draft Council Plan and Budget will be available for inspection from 1 May to 29 May 2019 at Council’s Customer Service Centres and Libraries.
