Council adopted the Delivery Program and Operational Plan at its Meeting on 20 May 2013.
The Delivery Program is a statement of commitment to the community from each newly elected council. This is where the community’s strategic objectives are systematically translated into actions. The Delivery Program replaces the former Management Plan requirements. All plans, projects, activities and funding allocations must be directly linked to this Delivery Program.
Supporting the Delivery Program is an annual Operational Plan. It spells out the details of the Delivery Program – the individual projects and activities that will be undertaken each year to achieve the commitments made in the Delivery Program. It will also include the council’s operational budget for the year.
The Budget is inclusive of the Infrastruture Levy, which aims to close the gap in Infrastructure Renewal.
Council has developed its long term Resourcing Strategies to achieve the objectives established by the Community Strategic Plan. The Resourcing Strategy informs the development of the Community Strategic Plan and will be informed by the adopted Community Strategic Plan. The Resourcing Strategy includes a Long Term Financial Plan, Asset Management plan and Work Force Plan.
In addition Council has developed a 5 years Works Program for Roads, Footpaths, Stormwater and Facilities, which increases the rate of renewal for these assets
