Each year we plan ahead for the next 12 months. In our Annual Plan, we also outline our major projects, and how we intend to pay for these (which includes the setting of next year’s rates). If the Long-Term Plan is the grand strategy, mapping our goals for Napier in the decade ahead, then the Annual Plan details how we’ll get there.
Our Annual Plan also shows how we’re tracking against our Long Term Plan. It gives us an opportunity to review information, update budgets and make adjustments if we need to.
Because even the best-made plans sometimes don’t go to plan! There are various reasons we make changes – sometimes we can’t deliver what we hoped and have to push a project into next year, or there might be compelling reasons to bring work forward that was scheduled for further down the track.
Our Annual Plan 2019/20 (14MB) was formally adopted by NCC on Friday 28 June, 2019. It contained some significant changes to our Long Term Plan. The key elements of the final Annual Plan include:
This infographic outlines our priority areas from our Long Term Plan - and what we're intending to do in 2019/20.
We took our draft Annual Plan 2019/20 out to the city in April 2019. Many of the changes we were proposing involved trade-offs. An example? Our recycling levy was previously $19 per household per year, yet the actual cost is $72 per household (and rising). We had been covering the shortfall from our reserves (savings), but this was obviously not sustainable long-term. And so we asked our residents how they wished to fund the service. We had a couple of options:
The community's preference was for a part-pay option which was duly adopted by NCC.
Our consultation period ran from Monday 8 April until Monday 13 May 2019. We advertised this heavily in newspapers, radio and social media. We also had three public meetings. These were the significant dates from consultation to adoption.
