Council calls for community involvement in Long Term Plan
Regional council calls for community involvement in
shaping its Long Term Plan
Regional Council is calling for community input into its
Long Term Plan (LTP) to help shape its work programme over
the coming decade.
The LTP sets out the projects the
council will undertake, what services it will provide and
how it will fund them. It enables the council to plan for
the next 10 years, and also sets the basis for Annual Plans
during this period.
To ensure the LTP reflects the needs
of region, the council is seeking views on what residents
think are the key issues and priorities facing the greater
Wellington region. To make your views known, visit HaveYourSay.gw.govt.nz between 18 August
and 12 September.
Further consultation on the LTP will
take place in March and April
