Draft Annual Plan Consultation

The draft Annual Plan 2019/2020 is now out for consultation. 

The draft plan focuses on saving money through better financial management, improving partnerships with the community, businesses and our Treaty partners and investing in the people, systems and processes Council needs to provide the services our community is asking for.

The draft plan includes additional investment in roads, footpaths and streetlights, $1million towards a new pool, completing core community facilities work and adjusting our fees so that those who use our services (such as building consents) pay a fair share of the cost of providing them.

The draft plan also focuses on waste management and minimisation. The impact of the earthquake on our waste means there are about 3 years’ space left at the landfill at current disposal rates and our waste management and minimisation plans and strategies are due an overhaul to make sure Council and the community can work together to manage our waste as sustainably as possible in the future.

Whats in the plan

As Council continues to rebuild, repair and plan for the future of Kaikoura, the Ngai Tahu whakatauki that is the theme of this year’s Annual Plan reminds us that the decisions we make today, we make not only for ourselves but for our future generations.

 “Mō tātou, ā, mō kā uri ā muri ake nei – for us and our children after us”.

This year is year 2 of of the Three Year Plan. The Draft Annual Plan outlines what's changed between last years plans and today.  

Council is focused on ensuring a sustainable approach to improving our services and taking opportunities to protect, enhance and develop our District. This means working with our community, our Treaty partners and our visitors and investors and navigating increasing regulation and compliance requirements.
