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 will be managed, delivered and funded.

The Council has now adopted the Long Term Plan 2018-28. Our refreshed vision – to create liveable, thriving and connected communities - and the following five themes are our guideposts for working with you to plan and build the district we want to have in 2028.
