Long Term Plan (LTP) 2018 - 2028

Tēnā rā tātau katoa ki tā tātau Mahere Pae Tawhiti 2018-28. Ko te āhuatanga o tēnei Mahere Pae Tawhiti hei mea angitu ki tā tātau hapori: ngā takitahi, ngā iwi, ngā hapū, ngā tūmōmō pākihi, ōhanga rānei; kia whakawhāiti mai ki tā Kaunihera aronga, whakaarotau, hōtaka mahi me ngā mahere pūtea hoki ki ngā tau tekau e whai ake nei. Kua puta te Kaunihera te kaupapa ‘Tukua Mai’ i te tau 2017. I taua wā i uia te hapori e mātau, me pēhea tātau hei whakatau ngā aronga, ngā whakaarotau, ngā hōtaka mahi me ngā mahere pūtea? Mai i ngā whakautu, ka taea e te Kaunihera ngā aronga mō ētahi kaupapa matua mā koutou hei whakaarohia. Ka whakauia mai anō mātau mō tā koutou whakawhāiti ki te kaupapa anō hoki. Ko te ‘Hāpaitia’ te kupu kitenga ki te wāhanga nei o te Mahere Pae Tawhiti.

Tēnā ra tātau katoa and welcome to our Long-term Plan (LTP). This 2018-28 LTP has provided an opportunity for our community: individuals, iwi, hapū, local organisations and businesses; to become involved with Council’s direction, priorities, work programme and budgets for the next 10 years. “Hāpaitia” is Council’s vision for this LTP engagement and includes key themes like sustainability, having pride in our place, keeping you at the forefront of our operations as a local government body and getting on with the job. Although economic development remains a key priority for us, maintaining our levels of services and infrastructure is core business for us. Infrastructure provides a foundation for building strong and resilient communities and Council will be investing in infrastructure over the life of this plan.

We will continue to focus on growing our population, transforming our district, and delivering a world class service. We are not prepared to sit back and do nothing. In saying that, decisions will be made with the whole community in mind. We understand that some of these decisions might be difficult, but they will be necessary for us to all achieve our goals. We would like to commend this Council and staff for having the courage to tackle these issues head-on, and with the best of intentions.

Council undertook an LTP pre-engagement process called “Tukua Mai”, where we asked you how we should set our priorities, work programme, direction and budgets. Based on that feedback, Council has now prioritised some key projects for you to consider. We are now asking you to become involved with this consultation process. “Hāpaitia” is the theme for this stage of the LTP and we want you to be involved.
