Annual Plan 2017/18 submissions and hearings
The Annual Plan process serves to update the work plans and budgets that were set through the Long Term Plan for the year ahead (1 July 2017 – 30 June 2018). Consultation on the draft Annual Plan 2017/18 closed on Thursday 20 April.
Council received a total of 253 submissions on the draft Annual Plan. Submissions covered the key projects on the table for consultation: the proposed iconic Visitor Information Centre in Mount Maunganui, financials (rates and debt levels) and Mainstreet targeted rates. The Visitor Information Centre was at the centre of most submissions with 178 received on the proposed investment, location and design.
Hearings start on Wednesday 10 May. Fifty five people are scheduled to come speak to Council in support of their submissions over two days, representing either themselves as residents and ratepayers, or larger groups.
