Long Term Plan 2018-2028

Bay of Plenty Regional Council’s Long Term Plan (LTP) 2018-2028 was adopted on 28 June 2018, taking effect from 1 July 2018.

The Long Term Plan sets our direction as a council and establishes the work we will deliver to the community over the next 10 years, as well as setting out how that work will be funded, such as the setting of rates. It also acts as the Council’s Annual Plan 2018/19.
