Revised draft Annual Plan 2020-2021

Submissions closed at 5pm on 1 July, 2020.

The annual plan sets our budget and work plans for the coming year and identifies what has changed from the Long-Term Plan 2018-28.

It includes rates, building projects, services, finances and more.

COVID-19 is causing financial hardship and uncertainty for the people of Tauranga, so we revised our draft Annual Plan to take this into account.
