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 adopted the Annual Plan 2023 – 2024(PDF, 4MB) on 28 June 2023, which takes effect 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 doesn't differ from the LTP Year 3 in a significant way, so there was no formal consultation. 

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.

Having begun the 2023 – 2024 year, we are now in the process of preparing the Annual Report for 2022 – 2023. The Annual Report will go through an audit process as part of its preparation and we expect to adopt it on 25 October 2023.

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.
