Buller District Council

Annual Plans

Every three years Council completes a Long Term Plan, and in the intervening two years an Annual Plan is produced.  The 2015-2025 Long Term Plan was adopted by Council on Wednesday 30 June 2015.

The Annual Plan explains what Council is proposing to achieve in the year ahead, how much it will cost and how progress will be monitored.  It provides Council with chance to review progress and variations against Council’s latest Long Term Plan and takes into account any new issues.  It is an opportunity to consider whether the Long Term Plan still reflects the strategic direction Council is intending to take.  Any significant deviations to the Long Term Plan in terms of funding and policy need to be agreed through community consultation.

The community are consulted before the Annual Plan is finalised.  Written submissions are invited from members of the community and an opportunity for submitters to address Council on their submission is provided during a hearing session.

2017/ 2018 Annual Plan

The plan explains variations from the Council’s Long Term Plan 2015-2025 and provides both financial and service provision information across all activities intended to be carried out by the Council for the 2017/2018 year.

Consultation for the Draft Annual Plan is now closed and the following submissions have been received:
