Late Submissions

7.      The LTP submission period closed at 5pm on 26 April 2022. A number of late submissions have been received after this date. Submissions received after 5pm on 26 April 2022 and up until 3 May 2022 are deemed to be ‘late’. However, in recognition of 25 April 2022 being a public holiday and COVID-19 disruptions to the postal service we have accepted and processed all submissions received up till 3 May 2022.

8.      Any submissions received after the 3 May 2022 will not be able to be included in this agenda. Staff will contact these submitters directly to discuss their options. Late submissions will be tabled prior deliberations but may not be analysed alongside submissions received during the period.

Strategic / Statutory Context

9.      Council is required to have a Long-term Plan under s93 of the Local Government Act. As part of this, it is required to utilise the Special Consultative Procedure under s93 (5) of the Act.


10.    The Local Government Act 2002 requires an assessment of the significance of matters, issues, proposals and decisions in this report against Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.  Council acknowledges that in some instances a matter, issue, proposal or decision may have a high degree of importance to individuals, groups, or agencies affected by the report.

11.    In making this assessment, consideration has been given to the likely impact, and likely consequences for:

(a)   the current and future social, economic, environmental, or cultural well-being of the district or region

(b)   any persons who are likely to be particularly affected by, or interested in,

(c)   the capacity of the local authority to perform its role, and the financial and other costs of doing so.

12.    In accordance with the considerations above, criteria and thresholds in the policy, it is considered that the LTPA and Annual Plan 2022/23 are of high significance.


13.    Taking into consideration the above assessment, LTPA and Annual Plan 2022/23 are of high significance, officers are of the opinion that no further engagement is required prior to Council making a decision due to the special consultative procedure having just concluded.

Next Steps

14.    Deliberations are scheduled to take place for the LTPA and Annual Plan 2022/23 over 24-26 May 2022.

15.    Council is due to adopt the final LTPA and Annual Plan 2022/23 on 27 June 2022.
