2022-23 Annual Plan

Tō Tātau Tairāwhiti Māhere ā-Tau 2022/23 - Our Tairāwhiti 2022/23 Annual Plan.

Gisborne District Council adopted its 2022/23 Annual Plan on 23 June 2022. It's the second year of our 2021-2031 Long Term Plan.

The plan outlines our continued commitment to delivering on the aims of our current Long Term Plan - established in consultation with the people of Tairāwhiti - to provide quality, resilient infrastructure and services that support our community’s wellbeing, while striving to support the kaitiaki of our rohe.

The focus of the 2022/23 Annual Plan will be to continue to:

  • navigate the changing legislative environment within which we work
  • build our treaty relationships and partnerships
  • effectively deliver our major capital investment projects
  • support the kaitiaki of our rohe to ensure our natural resources are managed sustainably, through effective planning and place shaping.
