How are we doing?

As the regional council for Canterbury/Waitaha – our priorities include freshwater management, climate change resilience, emissions reduction, pest control and protection and regeneration of biodiversity. Learn more about Council's role, responsibilities and work, or find out how we're tracking.

The Long-Term Plan/Te Pae Tawhiti (LTP) (LTP) sets out our strategic vision, commitment and accountability to the community. It outlines our planned activities for the next 10 years, how much they will cost and how they will be funded. It also describes the outcomes sought for the community. 

Long-term planning is a continuous process. Council refreshes the LTP every three years. In the years between LTPs, all councils must produce an Annual Plan, with their budget for the next financial year. 

Our current LTP covers the period 2021-31. We are reporting here on the Annual Plan/Mahere ā Tau or the period from 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023. Our next update to these pages will be in October 2023, to provide a report on quarter one of the next reporting period – 1 July 2023 – 30 September 2023.

Our work programmes, and our reporting, are organised into five portfolios, with Levels of Service targets and key initiatives.

How are we tracking overall for the period 1 July to 30 June?

Our Annual Plan for the 2022/23 year describes 40 Levels of Service, each of which has one or more measures and specific targets.

For the period from 1 July 2022 to the end of June 2023, our results (subject to audit) show that we have achieved 30 Levels of Service, nine were not achieved, and one was not measured – a completion rate of 77%.
