On March 9 the Christchurch City Council released the consultation document for its long term plan covering the period 2015 to 2025. This is a critical document that will shape the future of our Council and our City.
The document can be downloaded at www.ccc.govt.nz.
It is really important that we all have input into the document during the consultation period which is open now and closes on 20 April 2015.
CECC will be making a comprehensive submission. We are however, just one voice. It is vital that individuals and companies submit on the plan. Every submission is valued and critical in ensuring that we get optimal outcomes from the plan.
The plan explains the services and projects the council will provide over the next ten years and importantly how they will be funded.
This is a pivotal time for the Council with a projected $1.2 billion shortfall and some serious choices to be made to address the funding problem.
Have your say. It will count!
