All going to Plan

CLOSED: This online engagement period has now concluded. Thank you for having your say.

By sharing your input you can contribute to our city’s future. We need to make sure we’re prioritising the right projects, and our long-term plans reflect our communities and what they will need in the future.

Every three years we formally consult on our ten-year Long Term Plan. This site profiles the projects agreed in LTP 2018-2028, and asks for your comments and ideas for what’s planned in your neighbourhood.

Use the map below in Major Projects to check out our investment in infrastructure, urban growth, leisure and wellbeing, and environmental sustainability. Projects in My Ward focus on development and key action areas in each of Hutt City Council’s six ward areas.

We want to have a conversation with you about what’s in our plan and how you can have a say in decision-making for the future of our city. There are lots of ways you can have input into what projects we fund and how we prioritise them. Share your thoughts!

    What about my rates?
    Our financial strategy is to keep rates increases as low as possible and to focus spending on the things that will make the biggest difference in our community. When setting rates, we take into account inflation (on the cost of providing existing services and facilities) and expected growth – which means costs can be shared between more people.

    For 2019/20, there will be an overall rate increase of 1.8% (excluding growth). For residential ratepayers, rates increases are likely to be approximately 2.6% as we continue to shift some of the rates burden from commercial ratepayers to...

    For 2019/20, there will be an overall rate increase of 1.8% (excluding growth). For residential ratepayers, rates increases are likely to be approximately 2.6% as we continue to shift some of the rates burden from commercial ratepayers to residential ratepayers, to best ensure that all ratepayer categories are charged fairly for the benefits they receive. An average residential property (CV of approximately $472,000), can expect a rates increase in 2019/20 of approximately $1.20 per week.

    Where does my money go?
    Hutt City Council is responsible for providing a large number of services (activities) to the public. View what your rates are paying for, and the cost of each activity for every hundred dollars spent.
