Who really cares about LTP?

The Otago Regional Council is inviting submissions on its Long Term Plan.

Who really cares about it? I suspect only those with a particular issue they feel very strongly about will take up the invitation.

If changes mooted for local bodies come to fruition its probable the council will disappear long before the term of the plan but that doesn’t make submissions any less important.

This is one reason no farmer should begrudge paying a sub to Federated Farmers.

Few if any of us will bother to read the plan and fewer still will submit on it.

But Feds will do it on our behalf and we should be grateful that they do because the plan will affect the rates we pay and what we can and can’t do on our farms.
