Carterton’s Ten Year Plan – Te Māhere Ngahurutanga

Carterton’s Ten year Plan, more commonly known as the Long Term Plan(LTP), is the Council’s key planning document. Its purpose is to enhance transparency and accountability to the Carterton community by outlining the activities of the Council over the next ten years, including costs and funding. Consulting on a draft plan  is another step in the ongoing process to understand community needs and how to best respond to them.

It also provides a link to other Council planning documents, plus regional and national documents that are relevant to the Council.

Development of the LTP requires the Council to look at the ‘big picture’ as well as focusing on planning on a year-to-year basis. The LTP sets out the short, medium, and long-term priorities of the Council and shows how the Council will contribute to the four well-beings (social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being) and achieve progress towards the community outcomes.


Submissions for the 2021-2031 Ten Year Plan will open on 18 March 2021


Taking the ideas 715 ideas from the Big Jar of Ideas and putting them in the draft plan

In July 2020, we asked you:

  • What’s your big idea for Carterton?
  • Have our district’s needs changed in the last year?
  • What things would you like the council to focus on for the next 10 years? 

What was in the jars?

Which ideas will the council end up using?

We need to look at which ideas are achievable for a small council like ours, and which ones are community-led projects we can support. The draft 2021-2031 Long-Term plan will be put together before 18 March 2021, with your ideas helping the council consider what type of things may be able to be included.

The council will then consult with residents between 18 March and 17 April to give you a final say on the items it is proposing to include.
