The purpose of Nelson City Council’s Long Term Plan 2021–31 consultation document is to put the social, cultural, economic and environmental wellbeing of the Nelson region at the heart of our plans over the next 10 years. Every three years we develop a Long Term Plan for our City. The Plan looks at the next 10-year period and outlines what Council will be aiming to achieve, how much it will cost and how that activity will be paid for. Learn more about the Long Term Plan.
