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