Our draft annual plan for activities, spending and funding for 2019 and 2020.
The key focus for this Annual Plan is protecting Christchurch’s drinking water supply and improving the health of the city’s waterways while keeping rates at below forecasted levels.
An average rate increase of 4.79 per cent has been agreed, which is less than the forecast in the 2018-28 Long Term Plan. For more details, please read the article on Newsline.
A budget that focuses on delivering core services while keeping rate rises to lower than signalled in the Long Term Plan will be considered by Christchurch City Council next week.
The Council is meeting on Tuesday to finalise its 2019/20 Annual Plan, which sets out the organisation’s work programme for the next 12 months and how it plans to finance it.
The budget papers that will be considered by the Council provide for an average rate rise of 4.99% – half a percent less than was proposed in the Long Term Plan.
