Buller District Council

Long Term Plan’s

The Long Term Plan (LTP) provides a long term focus on Council’s decisions and activities.  It is a 10-year plan that explains how Council intends to contribute to our communities well-being, the financial impact of these activities and how progress will be monitored.

The Long Term Plan is reviewed and published every three years, with an Annual Plan produced during the two intervening years.

Council is aware of the significant cost of producing a printed copy of these substantial reports.  We consider that by making the document primarily available electronically costs are reduced and it is more considerate to the environment.

 


2018-2028 Long Term Plan

Council’s 2018-2028 draft Long Term Plan went out for consultation from Monday 23 April, closing Friday 25 May.  In total 124 submissions were received, including one petition containing 314 signatures.

Councillors heard verbal submissions on Thursday 7 June and deliberations and decision making took place on Friday 8 June.  Major changes to the draft LTP were made when Council decided not to pursue the purchase of the Holcim Assets.  This project was removed from the final LTP, and the District Revitalisation and Building Rationalisation projects were changed from the original proposals.  Full details of these can be found in the LTP below.

On Wednesday 27 June 2018 Audit NZ provided an unmodified Audit Opinion on the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan, which means they have audited every facet of the document and it meets legislative requirements.  Councillors then approved the adoption of the final Long Term Plan.
