Media statement: Draft Long-Term Financial Plan endorsed for public consultation


At its meeting on Monday 5 February, the Council provided ‘in-principle’ endorsement of the draft 2019 to 2028 Long-Term Financial Plan for public consultation.

Pursuant to Section 122 of the Local Government Act 1999, the Council is required to prepare a Long-Term Financial Plan for a period of at least ten years.

The Long-Term Financial Plan reflects the Council's objectives, goals and desired outcomes in financial terms. The Council's long-term sustainability is dependent on ensuring that, on average over time, the Council's operating expenses are less than the associated revenues.

Details about the public consultation period will soon be available from the Council’s website at:
