Annual Plans

Annual Plans provide a process for the Otago Regional Council (ORC) to review the detailed budgets contained in the Long-term Plan 2021-31 (LTP). The nature and level of change to the LTP is of interest to the community and influences the way we reach out. Let us know if you think we should carry on with the programme as already agreed with the community. 

Annual Plan 2022-23

After carefully considering all community feedback, the Council has directed staff on the final direction and content of the Annual Plan. 

The Council thanks people who took the time to share their thoughts about our service intentions, to make Otago a better place with their ideas.

There was solid support for sticking to the existing agreed direction from the LTP. We also heard feedback about the financial pressures on households and businesses. We weighed up the importance of what the ORC needs to provide Otago and the uncertain economic times and took the tough decision to stick to the LTP and the planned rating increase. 

The council considered this matter carefully and has signaled its intention to focus more than ever on spending your rates wisely to benefit Otago’s people and environment. 

The new plan is in effect from 1 July 2022.
