Our 2017/18 initiatives

The November 2016 earthquake highlighted the need to further increase the city’s resilience. As a result, it has become a priority for the Council to develop and fund resilience projects, and this has seen a change in the timing of some projects and related capital spending contained in the Long-term Plan. 

These proposed changes do not affect the Council’s core levels of service (for example, roads, water and sewerage) for 2017/18. In preparing the proposed changes for each project we have reviewed a range of options, including making no changes for 2017/18.
