Our 2021-31 Long Term Plan

We’re looking into the next 10 to 30 years, and our proposed plans for getting to Our Place/Ngā kaupapa o tā tātou kainga – which is the ideal Hauraki District that our communities imagined when we spoke with them last year.

We asked for feedback on our plans and what they mean for you and your whānau, especially when it comes to paying the rates bill. The written feedback period is now closed, however if you would like to have your say, please contact us to speak at a Council hearing on 18/19 May 2021.

We’ll look at all feedback at on 18/19 May, and make some decisions on our future plans. Check back here in July to view our new long term plan.

Our 2018-18 long term plan below will still be in effect until 30 June 2021.
