Draft Long-Term Plan now open for feedback

No longer on display. Expired on 09 May 2024, 04:00 PM

Palmerston North City Council is now seeking feedback on its draft long-term plan. The plan outlines the services we are proposing to provide and major projects we will undertake over the next decade (2024-34), how much these will cost, how they will be funded and what rates will need to be.

Part of the proposed plan includes seeking feedback on whether we change the rating system we use to determine rates, how we proceed with seismic upgrades to our Central Library and Te Manawa Museum, and proposed upgrades to, and additional, community facilities.

We also outline proposed water, transport, housing and growth projects for the city for the next decade. This includes our plan on how we fund our Nature Calls wastewater project in the future, once consent is granted in the coming years.

As part of this consultation we’re also seeking feedback on our proposed waste management and minimisation plan, amendments to our development contributions policy, revenue and finance policy, Oranga Papaioea city strategy and plans, financial strategy, infrastructure strategy, rates remission and postponement policies, and the draft significance and engagement policy.
