It is Long Term Plan time here at Waimate District Council. Every three years Council prepares a Long Term Plan (LTP), laying out what Council plans to do over the next 10 years, and how this will be funded.

As part of the process for developing our LTP we must produce a Consultation Document. This document provides us with an opportunity to discuss the key issues and challenges we are facing with you. Most importantly, it gives you a chance to tell us what you think about our plans for facing these issues and challenges.

Our Consultation Document is called Our Future - Today. It is available here online, at the Council office, the Library, the Event Centre, and will be delivered to every mailbox in the District from Thursday 19 April.

Submissions to the Long Term Plan Consultation Document are now closed.

Our Future - Today discusses:

Our Key Issues:

  • Water Treatment Upgrades: We need to upgrade our water treatment plants to provide safe drinking water. What is the best way to do this?
  • Addressing Our Deteriorating Roads: Some of our roads are deteriorating faster than in the past. How much should we spend on maintaining them?

Our Other Plans:

Addressing our Key Issues are priorities for us over the next 10 years, but we have plenty of other things planned across all our activities and services. Our Consultation Document details some of these plans:

  • Economic Development
  • Water and Sewerage Pipe Renewals
  • Library Redevelopment
  • Waste Minimisation
  • Community Support Grants
  • Policy Changes and Development

Our Strategies

Our Consultation Document also provides summaries of our key strategies:

  • Infrastructure Strategy: Details how we plan to meet our infrastructure needs in the most affordable way by replacing what is deteriorating and planning well for the future to maximise the assets we have.
  • Financial Strategy: Details how we plan to keep rates affordable in the face of some costly projects. We will increase debt so that we can spread the cost of these projects over a longer period of time. This will help reduce the impact on rates in the coming years and share the cost over current and future ratepayers.
