Council & City

10 Year Plan

Council’s 10 Year Plan (long-term plan) is our big picture plan. It shows how we want the city to develop and sets out the projects and services we'll provide over the next 10 years.

We prepare a new 10 Year Plan in consultation with residents every three years. You can download the current plan and the two previous plans from the bottom of this page.

Our current 10 Year Plan [2018-28] was adopted on 25 June 2018. It supports Council's vision for Palmerston North: Small city benefits, big city ambition.

We're keeping with the same strategic vision as we draft our next 10 Year Plan [2021-31] but also giving consideration to post-Covid economic challenges. Consultation on the plan will open in March, so you can tell us what matters most.
