2014 -2015 Annual Plan Proposal

2014 -2015 Annual Plan Proposal

The Council is consulting on its 2014 - 2015 Annual Plan Proposal from 2 April to 5 May 2014. This is your chance to let the Mayor and councillors understand your views about the proposed Plan and to put forward other ideas, so please take the time to get involved and have your say.

What is an Annual Plan?

Every three years the Council is required to develop a Ten Year Plan which outlines the projects and services the Council intends to carry out in the district. Each intervening year the Council also develops an Annual Plan which highlights the Council’s programme for that year and identifies any differences in that programme with what the Council said it was going to do in its Ten Year Plan. The most important thing about the Annual Plan is that it sets the rates for the coming year.
