Annual Plan 2017/18
Gisborne District Council's 2017/18 Annual Plan adopted 29 June 2017.
Council did not propose any significant changes to our plans for year 3 of the Long Term Plan.
The Annual Plan consultation focused on Council delivering its plans for 2017/18 within the agreed financial limits (restricting rates increases to 2% and capped debt levels). We also asked for feedback on the future of Peel Street toilets, James Cook Observatory, Easter Sunday Trading and our dual name

Our consultation on the draft plan
We consulted on the draft Annual Plan over 4 weeks in March/April. Feedback and submissions were received from 250 people online and on Facebook.
In addition, we held community meetings throughout the district. Run separately to the Annual Plan process, the 'Council Cuppas' had an increased focus on individual communities.
