2018 Revenue and Financing Policy Consultation

Every three years we prepare a Long Term Plan (LTP). We look at what we've achieved over the last few years, where we want to go, and how much it will cost us. As a part of this, we review the Revenue and Financing Policy.

The purpose of the Revenue and Financing Policy is to set out how Council proposes to fund the operating and capital expenditure of the activities it undertakes. 

Please read the Statement of Proposal for more details on the changes we are recommending.
