Annual Plan and Report

Our Annual Plan sets out what we aim to achieve in the given financial year. It presents the proposed budget and work programmes and is closely aligned to our Long-term Plan.

The Annual Plan 2017/18 updates the forecasted outputs and financial information in the third year of the council’s current Long-term Plan 2015-2025 (LTP).  It remains true to the council’s priorities consulted on via the LTP consultation document Southland’s Big 3 (water, air, biodiversity) in 2015, and has no significant changes.

A number of major projects are highlighted in the latest Annual Report for 2017/18 which has been formally adopted by council.

The report sets out progress on the projects and programmes in the past 12 months that were committed to in the Annual Plan and Long-term Plan 2015–2025.

Overall, we achieved what we set out to do – progress freshwater management, support the community to improve air quality and better coordinate the effo​rts within the Council and across Southland to improve biodiversity.​
