Long Term Plan

Our Long Term Plan sets out the priorities, projects and activities we’ll be focusing on over the next 10–20 years. It's 304 pages long - but surprisingly readable!

There is currently a real likelihood of rates increasing as we look to deliver our services and planned capital works programme. Council will review all current activities and projects, alongside considering a Long Term Plan that is focused on strengthening our foundations, above and below the ground.

Below the ground: getting the basics right by improving our three waters infrastructure.

Above the ground: a safe and vibrant city for our community to enjoy.

What is a Long Term Plan?

The Long Term Plan (LTP) is our vision for Napier's future. Essentially, it's a budget that sets out the projects and activities that we'll focus on over the coming ten years, and shows how they'll be paid for. 

The Long Term Plan is updated every three years, with the last update taking place in 2018, when the LTP 2018-28 was adopted. The next LTP (2021-31) will be adopted in mid-2021.

Typically, before we start finalising the contents of the LTP, we go through a pre-engagement process with the community. This means that we ask our residents and ratepayers what they think Napier’s priorities should be. This feedback helps to inform what we include in the LTP.

Once written, it goes back to the community for formal consultation. People can tell us what they think through the consultation’s submissions process. After this, and taking into account the community’s views, the LTP is formally adopted by Council.
