What is a 10-Year Plan?

The 10YP sets out our strategic direction and work programme for the next decade. It is the blueprint for our services, the projects we will undertake, how much things will cost and how they will be paid for. It is the cornerstone of our long term planning and you (our customers) are an important part of the process.

To make it easier for you to provide us with feedback on our 10-Year Plan we produce a consultation document. Our 2018 - 2028 consultation document is called Are We Ready? This 32-page booklet will be dropped into letterboxes throughout the District from 6 April. 

However, you can download a copy below.

Are We Ready? 10-Year Plan consultation document [PDF, 3.8 MB] 

Please take the time to read it. If you didn't receive a copy in your letterbox, you can click on the link above  or pick up a copy from our civic administration building, Gore or Mataura library, or just call us on 2090330 and we will send one to you.

The Key Issues 

TOWN AND COUNTRY - Rating boundaries

Gore and Mataura’s urban boundaries have not changed since the days of the old boroughs, which went out of existence in 1989. We think it is time to introduce a more principled approach to provide consistency when defining urban boundaries across our district.

The feedback we want from you is do you agree or disagree with our proposal to change rating boundaries?

A PLACE TO ROAM - Dog parks

Wandering dogs are a nuisance and potential menace to the public, and costly for their owners.

The feedback we want from you is do you agree or disagree there is community-good in providing open spaces for dogs to exercise and socialise?

BRIDGING THE GAP - Pyramid Bridge replacement

The Pyramid Bridge was a popular thoroughfare for contractors, farmers, residents and tourists prior to its collapse in February this year. Plans to replace it have been in the pipeline for a number of years.

The feedback we want  from you is should the bridge be replaced with a widened one lane bridge or a two lane bridge?
