Annual Plan 2014-2015
On Wednesay 25 June 2014, the Annual Plan for 2014-15 was adopted by council which is available for you to view below.
We are progressing in a number of areas based on our Long Term Plan (LTP) delivering benefits to the Hawke’s Bay community.
- Catchment based planning
- Science-informed land management
- Ruatanwhia Water Storage (RWS)
- Air Quality/HeatSmart
- Passenger Transport
- Regional Parks Network Plan
The Local Government Act requires us to plan in three-year cycles. Every three years we consult the community with a draft long-term plan. This sets out our intentions for the decade ahead and highlights the key issues facing our region, and how we plan to address them. Our current Long Term Plan was adopted in June 2012.
Each year between the long-term plans we take a fresh look at our work programmes and consider whether any changes are needed. These may be due to changes in external circumstances, revisions to budgets or new projects being required to deal with issues facing the region.
This Plan highlights the changes in 2014-15 from what was set out in the 2012-22 Long-Term Plan, and is set out in three parts.
As well as the online version - below - a full copy of the Draft Annual Plan is available at Hawke’s Bay Regional Council offices in Napier, Wairoa and Waipawa and public libraries. You can also contact HBRC for a copy.
