Long Term Plan 2024-27

Web Banner LTP EE

Our Long Term Plan (LTP) sets our direction and our work and describes the outcomes we aim to achieve over a 10 year period.

Recognizing the devasting impacts of Cyclone Gabrielle, the Government changed the requirement to produce a 10-year LTP for severely impacted councils. The Government has instead directed that those councils, including the Wairoa District Council, produce a 3-year plan for 2024-2027, focused on cyclone recovery.

The Wairoa District Council is responsible for delivering a wide range of essential services and facilities including water supply, wastewater (sewage treatment and disposal), waste management (rubbish and recycling), transport (roads and footpaths), parks and reserves, libraries, economic development, and animal control to name a few. 

As we begin to prepare our 3-year LTP, we are mindful that the extensive time and resource pressures resulting from Cyclone Gabrielle as well as the rising inflationary costs of providing our core services and facilities present real challenges for the Council and the community.

Community consultations on the last LTP helped the Council set its direction on the levels of services for 2021-2031. Once again, we need to think about our levels of service and how they will be funded as we rebuild and recover from Cyclone Gabrielle, while minimising the impacts on our community and our ratepayers.

The LTP is more than just a workplan for the Council – it’s about working towards the kind of community we want to live in and the future we want for us all. Our Mayor and our Councillors want to hear from you. We want to understand your concerns and your needs as we travel this road of recovery together.
