About the Annual Budget 2020/2021

The annual budget outlines:

  • what we plan to deliver
  • how we plan to pay for it
  • how we set property rates for the coming financial year.

We develop annual budgets in the two intervening years between each 10-year budget which is also known as the long-term plan (LTP). The 10-year Budget 2018-2028 is our current LTP.

The annual budget also includes the local board agreements of each of our 21 local boards.
