10-Year Plan 2012-2022


Every three years all councils must provide a detailed plan which sets out their programme for the next 10 years, how much it will cost and what it will deliver to the city. Hamilton is a great place to live and work, and we are a significant city within New Zealand. 

However as a city we're facing significant financial challenges. This Plan is about living within our means, getting debt under control, returning to surplus and providing for our growing city in a sustainable way. It is about getting the city and its finances back on track.
