Our annual plans and reports

Annual Plan

Every three years Upper Hutt City Council produces a Long Term Plan (LTP) setting out the projects, activities and services that we will invest in and develop over a ten year period. The Long Term Plan incorporates the Annual Plan for that year. In the intervening years, an Annual Plan is produced on its own.

Annual Plan 2023 – 2024

We're in the process of completing the Annual Plan for 2023 – 2024, which will be operative from 1 July 2023. There are changes we've made to Year 3 of the Long Term Plan 2021 – 2031 due to the circumstances and challenges that Upper Hutt continues to face. We're maintaining levels of service but, in order to finance our operating costs, we'll need to use more reserves than we've done in the past. This year won't differ from the LTP Year 3 in a significant way, so we're not asking for submissions.

Annual Plan 2022 – 2023

We adopted the Annual Plan 2022 – 2023(PDF, 4MB) on 29 June 2022, which is operative from 1 July 2022. The Annual Plan incorporates changes we've made to Year 2 of the Long Term Plan 2021 – 2031 due to the circumstances and challenges that Upper Hutt is now facing. This meant we had some big decisions to make—particularly around rising costs and delivery timing of our LTP projects. During our consultation in April and May, we received 693 submissions, which provided us with valuable feedback on what we were proposing and helped to guide our decision making.

Annual Report

The Annual Report is a document Council produces each year outlining our achievements and accountability to the community for decisions made throughout the year. As well as highlights from the past year, the report includes performance measures and financial information.

We adopted the Annual Report for 2021 – 2022(PDF, 5MB)  on 14 December 2022. Temporary legislation has been passed, giving local government entities until 31 December 2022 to complete and adopt their annual reports.

Our annual report demonstrates what we have delivered 2021 – 2022, how we tracked against our financial and performance targets, and how we continued to support our community through the COVID-19 pandemic. 

For those readers wanting a quick overview, a summary of key information from the report is available in our Annual Report Summary 2021 – 2022.(PDF, 2MB)  

A limited number of printed copies will be available from late January 2023 at Council reception (HAPAI Service Centre) and Upper Hutt Libraries.
