Delivering our long term plan

It is the responsibility of managers and staff to deliver the initiatives decided by councillors, along with the ongoing operational responsibilities of the council in the district.

In this section, chief executive Pat Dougherty talks about the council’s capacity to deliver on the long term plan initiatives.

We provide an overview of the council’s financial strategy. This explains our management of finances and how we set rates and ensure appropriate levels of spending and borrowing to meet current needs and plan sustainably for the future.

This overview also outlines our approach to funding the district’s essential infrastructure such as roading and water.
