Every three years we develop a 10-Year Plan which sets out the major projects, budgets and financial strategy (including proposed rate increases) for the next 10 years.
An Annual Plan is produced in the two years between each 10-Year Plan and outlines any changes or additions to the projects, activities and financial information included in the 10-Year Plan. If there are no significant changes from the 10-Year Plan, Councils are not required to consult on their Annual Plan.
2020-21 Draft Annual Plan
Back on track - Hamilton's COVID-19 response budget
Every year Council develops a plan that sets out the projects and budgets for the year ahead. As a Council we had our plan sorted – to follow what we said we were going to do in Year 3 of our 2018-28 10-Year Plan.
But, COVID-19 changed that plan.
We have relooked at our plan for the next 12 months and considered new savings, revised spending and how we can best support our great river city.
The draft Back on track COVID-19 response budget is open for feedback until 10 July 2020.

2019-20 Annual Plan
The 2019 Annual Plan forms year two (2019/20) of the 2018-28 10-Year Plan, which has an average rate increase of 3.8%.
At the Council meeting on 26 February 2019, the Council determined the budget changes and proposals for 2019/20 were not significantly different from what we said we'd do in the 2018-28 10-Year Plan, and therefore no consultation was required.
The 2019/20 Annual Plan was adopted in June 2019. Click below to read what the Council's plans are for the next 12 months, how much it will cost and how it will be funded (including the setting of rates).
