Annual Plan

Update on the Invercargill City Council Annual Plan 2020/2021

The Annual Plan will contain the budget for the financial year (July 2020 – June 2021) and include details of any variations to the forecast for Year 3 (2020/2021) included in the Long-term Plan (2018 – 2028)

Invercargill City Council will adopt and publish an Annual Plan prior to the end of June 2020.  This will be based on the third year of the Long Term Plan.  As a result consultation on the Annual Plan is not required.

Council made this decision at an Extraordinary Meeting of Council meeting held on Tuesday 24 March 2020, following consideration of the unique circumstances caused by Covid-19.

The rates rise forecast in the 2018 – 2028 LTP for 2020/2021 was 3.54%.  Council will deliberate prior to the adoption of the 2020/2021 Annual Plan and may continue with this forecast rates rise or adopt a lower level rate rise.
