Importantly the LTP sets out our service priorities, work programmes, and resource requirements (expenditure and funding). This information is provided in detail for the first three years of the 10 year planning period and provides the basis on which the 2016/17 and 2017/18 Annual Plans are considered.
In the process of agreeing the LTP the Council considered 375 public submissions on the proposed LTP. After considering these submissions the Council made a number of changes that are reflected in the adopted LTP. The final Council decisions and consultation feedback is provided below.
Future community engagement on changes to the LTP will be decided, in a formal Council meeting, as part of the Annual Plan process. This decision about ‘the need for’ and ‘nature of engagement’ will be made well in advance of approving changes to the LTP. In brief, the significance and materiality of proposed change is an important influence on the degree and approach to engagement.
Acknowledging that the Council’s provision of service to the regional community is ongoing and that this LTP 2015-25 has built on previous LTPs – links to the previous two Plans are provided as background information.
