This draft Annual Plan covers financial year two of the Long Term Plan, from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020. It contains some changes from the information contained in the Long Term Plan for the 2019/20 year. 

You can find more information about the changes in Consultation Document [PDF, 789 KB], but here is a summary of our main proposals:

  • An overall average rates increase of 4.96 per cent. We expect future rate increases to be in line with the LTP.
  • Operational expenditure of $598.9 million – an increase of $8.3 million over the amount in the LTP.
  • Capital expenditure of $538.1 million invested into the city – an increase of $82.9 million over the amount in the LTP.
  • Borrowing is $77.3 million less than planned.
  • A balanced budget in the 2019/20 year.
