Long Term Plan 2018-28

We have been thinking about the needs of the communities of our District for the next ten years and beyond. The plan considers the ‘big issues’ that our District faces – the issues that are significant because of their impact on communities, their financial cost, or their public interest.

We have two key issues we are consulting on:

1. Changes to the Rating System.  What is the fairest way to distribute the cost of services?

2. Protecting people and property from flooding. What is the best way to pay for stormwater improvements?

We have thought about the best way to address these issues and have made some initial decisions on our preferred way forward.

But we want your feedback on the options presented in the plan. Your feedback will help us make informed decisions that reflect our community’s values and interests.
