The Chatham Islands Council adopted the 2022/23 Annual Plan on Wednesday 22 June 2022.

The key projects for 2022/23 regarding roading infrastructure include:

  • Replace the Whangamoe Bridge with a large culvert
  • Rehabilitate areas of sealed pavement in Kaingaroa and Waitangi
  • Design works for a barge loading facility at Owenga, and predesign works for the Maipito Bridge replacement
  • Key structural repairs and safety improvements to the existing Kaingaroa Wharf

Safe, reliable and sustainable water and wastewater services for Chatham Island remain at the forefront of our key projects.

There have not been any significant changes made between year two of the Long-Term Plan 2021–31 and the 2022/23 budget.

The Crown appropriation for the 2022/23 year will be $4.37M, which should enable the Council to continue business as usual.
