Annual Plans

Our Annual Plan explains how we intend to finance activities and services each year. It is made available to the community every February/March, based on a financial year that runs from 1 July to 30 June.

An annual plan is produced for each year of the Long-Term Plan (ten year rolling plan, reviewed every three years).  For the first year of each Long-Term Plan (LTP), the annual plan is incorporated into the LTP document.  

For subsequent years a stand-alone annual plan document is prepared, which refers back to the relevant year of the LTP.  For more information about our Long-Term Plans, click here.
