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.

Financially, Environment Southland is in good shape, with a strong balance sheet and significant financial reserves. The Council is able to report a better than expected overall result, with a deficit of just $1.517 million compared with a budgeted deficit of $1.553 million.
