Why do we need an annual plan?

The Government requires every Council to prepare a Long Term Plan (Ten Year Plan). Nelson’s Long Term Plan (LTP) 2012-22 was drafted and adopted last year, but Council is also required by law to let residents know of any changes to what was planned for 2014/15, which is Year Three of the Long Term Plan.

So, in essence, each year of the LTP is its own Annual Plan and should really be what is known as “an exceptions document” to the LTP as it only covers new information from what Council published as its intent last year.
