Finance / Ngā Kōrero ā-Pūtea

Last updated: 01 November 2023
Reporting frequency: Quarterly
Portfolio: Finance

We must manage our revenues, expenses, assets, liabilities, investments, and general financial dealings prudently and in a manner that promotes the current and future interests of the community.

Our budget

The Long-Term Plan/Te Pae Tawhiti (LTP) outlines our planned activities for the next 10 years, how much they will cost and how they will be funded. We refresh 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.

How are we doing in 2023/24?

To find out how we are tracking against our budget for 2023/24, including revenue and expenditure for each of our portfolios of work programmes and projects, see the latest report (1 November 2023) on financial performance to the Audit, Finance and Risk Committee (PDF File, 6.3MB). 

General rates are charged based on the capital value of property and location.
