Annual Plan 2017/18
Gisborne District Council's 2017/18 Annual Plan was adopted by Council on 29 June 2017. Council did not propose any significant changes to our plans for year three of the Long Term Plan.
Our Annual Plan consultation focused on Council delivering its plans for 2017/18 within the agreed financial limits (restricting rates increases to 2% and capped debt levels). We also asked for feedback on the:
- Future of Peel Street toilets.
- Future of the James Cook Observatory.
- Issue of Easter Sunday Trading.
- Dual name

Our consultation in March on the draft plan
We consulted on the draft Annual Plan over 4 weeks in March/April. Feedback and submissions were received from 250 people online and on Facebook.
In addition to the Annual Plan consultation, we held community meetings throughout the district. Run separately to the Annual Plan process, the 'Council Cuppas' had an increased focus on individual communities. Altogether 387 people attended 25 meetings and events to talk with our Mayor, Councillors and staff.
