Our vision for the Waikato district

What will life be like in the Waikato in 2028?

This is the question we ask every three years when we update the Long Term Plan (LTP) which sets the direction we’re heading in for the next 10 years.

The LTP describes our proposed activities across the district and outlines how the activities would be managed, delivered and funded.

This year we are reviewing the LTP. Our refreshed vision and the following five themes will be used to guide us in our planning to build the district we want to have in 2028.
