Welcome to Tauranga City Council’s Annual Plan 2016/17. This Plan represents the second year of our Long Term Plan 2015-2025 (LTP).
It sets the budget and work plan for the year from 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017 and identifies what has changed from the LTP. It sets Council’s direction for the year, and provides accountability to the community.
The Annual Plan was adopted by Tauranga City Council on Monday 27 June 2016.
