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.

2019/20 Annual Plan

The Council has adopted the 2019/20 Annual Plan at its meeting of 29 May 2019. The Annual Plan contains the work programme, forecast financial costs and income for the year 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020.

Unless major changes are warranted, the annual plan in essence provides for a refinement and update of what was already planned for in the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan (LTP). We’ve reviewed our work programme and we don’t consider that the plans for 2019/20 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.

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
  • the full list of projects planned for the year
  • our forecast financial statements including sample rates properties.
