Waikato District Council formally adopts Long Term Plan 2021-2031
Waikato District Council has formally adopted its Long Term Plan. With the vision of liveable, thriving, and connected communities guiding its decisions, the Council now begins implementing its 10-year budget and plans.
The decisions include a confirmed general rate increase (based on capital value) of 6.5% for the 2021/22 year (down from a proposed 9% increase), followed by 3.5% increases in the following two years. These came after lengthy consideration by Councillors to balance the needs of a growing district, with what people can afford.
