Proposed 2021-31 Long-term Plan

Horizons Regional Council's proposed 2021-31 Long-term Plan (LTP) sets out how we plan on managing the region’s natural resources for the next 10 years. This includes identifying the activities we propose to deliver and what rate contributions will be required to help cover the estimated costs for each year.
