Long Term Plan 2018-28
Council adopted the Long Term Plan 2018-28 on 21 June 2018. The Long Term Plan sets out Council’s programme of works over the next 10 years.
Nelson is the Smart Little City. It is a vibrant place - where we are deeply connected with, and committed to, our natural, social and cultural environment. Clever business and innovation help us thrive. We enjoy living fulfilled lives in smart, sustainable communities.
This is our vision for our city, and guides us as we deliver the Long Term Plan 2018-2028. This vision helps us shape our efforts as we keep the key question in our minds - where do we, as a city, want to be in 10 years’ time? Read more
The Long Term Plan will also be available at Council libraries and at the Customer Service Centre.
Our Top Four Priorities for the next 10 Years
