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.

Between April 2023 and June 2024, the Council will be creating the 2024-34 Long-term Plan. To find out more and have your say, visit Kōrero Mai | Let's Talk.

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.
