About the Annual Plan

On June 27 2017 Council adopted the Annual Plan 2017/18 and are happy to present this Plan to the Waimate community.

The Annual Plan provides an outline of Council's work programme for the 2017/18 year (beginning 1 July 2017).  The work programnme includes Council's ongoing activities and services as well as major projects planned for the coming year. The Plan also provides key financial information for the 2017/18 year, including how much the work programme will cost and how it will be paid for.

The overall rates increase for this year will be 3.98%, down from the 4.92% that was forecast in the Long Term Plan 2015-25. This demonstrates that Council are mindful of keeping spending at an affordable level for our residents and ratepayers. Further, we are confident that we have been and will continue to deliver cost-effective, efficient and high-quality services to the community.

We invite you to read the Annual Plan for more details on Council's Plan for the coming year. 
Hard copies of the Plan area available at Council, or to read in the Library.
