All councils in NZ are required to undertake planning to ensure that the services they provide are appropriate and sustainable, and the community must be given the opportunity to have their say on the important elements of this planning.
The main process to achieve these objectives is the preparation by each Council of a Long Term Plan (LTP). This process is conducted every three years, with the resultant Plan covering a ten year period, but with particular emphasis and detail on the next three years.
The key matters and challenges within the LTP that we believe that the community should be aware of and may wish to give feedback on are summarised in an LTP Consultation Document (CD). The Consultation Document can be downloaded here [PDF, 1.1 MB]. Alternatively, a hard copy can be obtained from the Council Office at 17 Maniapoto St, Otorohanga and the public libraries in Otorohanga and Kawhia.
