About the Long-term Plan
Long-term plans such as the 10-year budget are one of the main planning tools used by the council to help us shape and improve our city and region. We review – and seek public feedback – on these plans every three years. The Long-term Plan we’re currently working on will cover what we intend to do over the next 10-year period and how we propose to fund our activities.
We’ll be asking Aucklanders for your feedback on our new plan at the end of February 2024.

The Long-term Plan is one of the main tools that helps to shape and improve our city.
Auckland Council’s six demographic advisory panels have outlined to the Mayor and Councillors what they think needs to be done in the next three years to support their communities in our region.
Rates are an essential part of the funding that allows Auckland Council to maintain a vibrant and sustainable Tāmaki Makaurau. It’s how we fund the services and facilities that matter and helps creates a city where all Aucklanders can thrive.
