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.
