An Annual Plan details the Council's activities, work programmes and services, and financial and funding statements, for the period 1 July to 30 June.

An Annual Plan is closely linked to the  Long Term Plan (LTP) and essentially updates what was detailed in that Plan for the relevant financial year. The LTP should be referred to for more detailed information than is presented in the Annual Plan.

2017/18 Annual Plan

AP1718cvrThe 2017/18 Annual Plan comes into effect 1 July 2017 and a summary of the contents will be published in June 2017.

The Annual Plan contains the work programme, forecast financial costs and income for the year 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018.

Unless major changes are warranted, our annual plans in essence provide for a refinement and update of that already planned for in the 2015-2025 Long Term Plan (LTP). We’ve reviewed our work programme and we don’t consider that our plans for 2017/18 are significantly different to what we said in our LTP. This supports the direction of the Government to streamline annual plans and avoid re-consulting on matters already consulted on. Our annual plan documents are now much smaller, with references to the LTP rather than repetition, and we are trying to make them easier to read.

What you’ll find in the annual plan:
  • our progress against our financial strategy – how the plan stacks up
  • how much it costs us to provide each service group
  • specific changes to each activity including expenditure, income and service performance
  • our forecast financial statements including sample rates properties.
