Annual Plans

Annual Plans are prepared in the years between each Long Term Plan. These plans set out what we propose to do that year, how much it will cost and how we will fund it.

Once the Long Term Plan is in place, the Annual Plan process continues, but the focus is on year-to year budgets. The Annual Plans produced in the intervening years support the Long Term Plan, and their primary purpose is to provide the base for setting and assessing rates.
