The 10-year $13.1 billion budget focuses on investing in core infrastructure, delivering key services, and positioning Christchurch and Banks Peninsula for the future.

The proposed Draft 202131 Long Term Plan takes into account the challenging economic conditions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and incorporates savings of $329 million over 10 years in the day-to-day running costs of the city.

The Long Term Plan is our commitment to delivering the services and infrastructure our city needs to thrive, and an opportunity for everyone to shape the right game plan for our city for the next 10 years.

COVID-19 has had a major impact on all of us. We also need to prepare for the impact of climate change on our city.

We want to hear your thoughts about our city as we develop our Long Term Plan
