The Council Plan is our 10-year strategic plan and provides a strong foundation for the continuing rollout of projects, services and initiatives that go to the heart of the health and wellbeing of our diverse community.
The updated Council Plan 2020-21 was drafted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which presented us with many unexpected challenges. Supporting our community through the outbreak was fundamental, but it has come at a cost. Overall impact of COVID-19 on Council finances is estimated at $31 million, with $9.5 million felt in financial year 2019/20 and a further $21.5 million in financial year 2020/21. As our total Council budget is about $230 million each year, this poses a significant challenge.
We consulted with our community at every stage and the updated Council Plan and Budget 2020-21 was endorsed by Council on 19 August 2020.
Council Plan 2021-31
Work has started on the development of the Council Plan 2021-31, following the election of our new Council in November 2020.
You’ll be able to participate in several ways, including through surveys and workshops. To make sure you don’t miss out on opportunities to help shape the Council Plan, register your interest or sign-up for regular updates at Have Your Say.
