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.

Long-Term Plan time for Canterbury

Across the region all the councils are preparing plans for 2018-28 – and these plans need community input to help make sure they will deliver what the people of Canterbury actually want. You will see information in your letterbox and local media about two different plans.

One from the council for the district/city you live in eg Mackenzie, Selwyn or Christchurch. This is your ‘territorial authority’ and it is the council that provides services for your area eg libraries, footpaths, rubbish collections and water.

The other plan you will see is from Environment Canterbury (the regional council), that acts across Canterbury to look after regionwide issues such as air quality, freshwater quality, natural hazards and the buses.

All property owners in Canterbury pay rates to both the local territorial authority and Environment Canterbury, through the territorial authority rates bill.

Both the plans for where you live have consultation documents available in March and April and feedback is invited from all members of the community on both plans. To find out more visit the website of your council and Environment Canterbury.
