Every three years we ask our community to give us feedback on our proposed plan for the next ten years. Your feedback helps us to shape our Long-Term Plan 2024-2034, which sets out our work and budget for the next decade.

Consultation on our draft Long-Term Plan 2024-34 is open from Friday 3 May until Monday 3 June 2024.

As we look at how we navigate a way forward, there are many challenges facing our Islands. In our consultation document you’ll see that we’re looking at:

  • How we manage our reliance on external funding
  • How we meet future legislative requirements regarding three waters
  • Our inability to invest in critical infrastructure
  • A potential rates rise

Our consultation document [PDF, 1013 KB] outlines the issues and choices facing our community. You can also read the draft Long-Term Plan 2024-34 [PDF, 2.7 MB], as supporting information.
