About the 2021-31 Long Term Plan Consultation Document
This Consultation Document sets out Marlborough District Council’s proposed major projects and services over the next 10 years, and the impact on rates and debt levels. It also summarises Council’s Infrastructure and Financial Strategies.
The challenges presented in preparing our Long Term Plan have been like no other. While we have fared better than other parts of the world, and other parts of New Zealand, Marlburians are still living in a period of uncertainty caused by the global Covid-19 pandemic.
It will, however, be difficult to get our proposed increase much lower than 5.73% because of the costs driving this increase:
- Inflation, advised each year by the Local Government Cost Index (LGCI)
- Increased infrastructure investment due to growth and increasing Government and community requirements
- Covid-19 recovery work and revenue impacts
- New Government regulations, which impact virtually every aspect of Council
