Long-Term Plan 2012-22

The Long Term Plan 2012-22 consultation closed 4pm 4 may 2012.

Greater Wellington manages and funds public transport services, builds and maintains flood protection along our major rivers, provides drinking water for most people in the region, provides regional parks and manages the region's natural resources. We also lead regional planning for transport, economic development, emergency management and climate change.

We're now finalising our Long Term Plan 2012-22 which outlines the services we will provide over the next 10 years, how much these services will cost and how we intend to pay for them. We would like to hear what you think about what we are proposing.

We aim to provide high-quality but afforable services, to maintain debt at sustainable levels and keep rates increases as low as possible.

To achieve this in 2012/13 we are proposing to:

  • maintain our day-to-day activities at current levels, but hold cost increase to less than inflation - at an increased cost of $6 for the average ratepayer
  • carry on with the infrastructure plans we have previously committed to, including our commitment to upgrading the public transport network and constructing new flood protection works along our major rivers - at an increased cost of $11 for the average ratepayer
  • improve services in some areas where this is necessary to meet demand or new requirements - at an increased cost of $8 for the average ratepayer

We invite you to join the discussion below.

If you would like to provide a formal submission (with the option of presenting your views in person to the Council) you can use an online submission form. Submissions close at 4pm on 4 May 2012.

More information on what we are proposing can be found in the Long Term Plan summary and full documents in the documents section.
