Our Long-Term Plan sets out our service priorities, work programmes and resource requirements such as expenditure and funding for a 10-year period. We produce a new Long-Term Plan every three years, which incorporates our Annual Plan for the first of the three years.  A separate annual plan is produced for years two and three. Please click here for more information about our Annual Plans.  

The Long-Term Plan online survey has now closed.

Long-term plan engagement phase

Long-Term Plan 2015-25

Our most recent Long-Term Plan outlines service priorities and financial and revenue policies for the period 2015-25.

The council considered 375 public submissions on the proposed Long-Term Plan, which resulted in a number of changes before it was approved and adopted on 25 June 2015.

Each year’s annual plan process includes engagement with the community, particularly if any changes to the Long-Term Plan are needed.
