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 every three years, and our next one is due by 30 June 2018.

We have a proposed plan for 2018-28 based on our proposed vision of Palmerston North: Small city benefits, big city ambition.

Feedback on the plan is now closed. Councillors are considering submissions before finalising the plan.
