Waipa District Council
Draft 10-Year Plan 2018-28

Thanks for being part of Waipa’s story for the next 10 years.

Consultation on our plans for the next 10 years has now closed. It was great to hear from so many of you - all up we received more than 640 submissions on this website alone!

Our Mayor and councillors are now looking through the submissions and on 8 and 9 May, will hear from all of you who wanted to speak to your feedback in person.

Our story for the next 10 years will be finalised on 26 June. We will publish all of the decisions right here so stay tuned.

So What’s the story for Waipa? You sure told us!

In order to know where we are going, we need to know where we have come from.

Planning for the next 10 years isn't something that starts today. It starts by taking a step back and looking deep into our past to find out who we are and where we have come from.

Our story for the next 10 years is gearing up to be an exciting one.

This website outlines the key issues we are looking at over the next 10 years that we want your feedback on. It doesn't include every project, but it gives you an overview of projects or issues that have a significant cost, have high community interest or are different from what we said we would do in our last 10-Year Plan.

This feedback will then help the Mayor and councillors make their final decisions.

So, what’s the story? You tell us!

MAKING CENTS OF

COUNCIL DOLLARS

Over the next 10 years, we are budgeting on spending $1.26 billion in our district

We are looking at an annual average rates increase of 2.23 per cent over the next 10 years. That's including covering the costs of water. As of 1 July 2018, you will be charged for water separately. If we took away that charge, the average annual rates increase would be 1.53 per cent.
