TCDC: Final call for submissions on our Long Term Plan

We are into the last hours now for submissions on our 2018-2028 Long Term Plan.

The deadline for submissions is 4pm today.

Go to our website at www.tcdc.govt.nz/ltp to make a submission on our proposals and tell us what else you'd like to see from Council in the next 10 years. Or you can send us an email to consultation@tcdc.govt.nz. There are also hard copy submissions forms available at our council offices and district libraries.

The Long Term Plan is our main way of setting priorities for Council spending, identifying who should pay for what Council services and what exactly our services should be.

We have an annual expenditure of $85M and it's important that our residents, ratepayers and our communities take part in setting where that funding should be utilised to make this a great district to live.

"We won't have another major consultation like this until 2021 so we encourage you to make the most of this opportunity to shape the future of our district," says our Mayor Sandra Goudie.

If you have any last minute questions you need answered to help with your submission, please don't hesitate to contact our staff on 07 868 0200.

Earlier today, Transport Minister Phil Twyford announced that one of two new roads that the government would be co-financing would be a PPP – namely, the Penlink project that will link the northern motorway to the Whangaparaoa Peninsula.
