Long-term Plan

A Long-term Plan (LTP) outlines to our community how we intend to invest for the next 10+ years. Any year there is not a Long-term Plan review and we have significant projects that require public feedback, we will create an Annual Plan.

Long-term Plan 2024-34: Have your say

Formal consultation on Wellington’s 10-year plan and budget is closed. The Long-term Plan 2024-34 is scheduled to be adopted Wednesday 26 June by Council’s Kōrau Tōtōpū | Long-term Plan, Finance, and Performance Committee.

Understanding the Long-term Plan

It costs about a billion dollars each year to run Wellington City. We collect this money through rates, fees and charges, development contributions, grants and borrowing.

With input from the community, we need to decide how much we’ll spend on what, and what level of rates to set, so every three years we develop a Long-term Plan.

The Long-term Plan sets out the Council's priorities. It includes detailed information on the activities, services, and projects we intend to deliver, and therefore what the proposed rates and debt will be for the next 10 years.
