Annual Business Plan

The Annual Business Plan links our Community Plan 2035 with the annual budget planning process to ensure that we continue to develop and maintain essential infrastructure services such as roads, bridges and open spaces as well as providing important services including libraries, health, planning and waste collection.

Our Community Plan sets the long-term directions for the city and each year we develop a business plan to fine-tune the detail. The Annual Business Plan outlines council's priorities for the year and includes the budget and rating policy.

Considerable effort goes into developing our budget each year to ensure that the mix of services and capital works meets the needs of residents, businesses and visitors to the region. At the same time we also aim to balance the provision of services and facilities with the ability of our communities to pay.

Each year we undertake community engagement and invite feedback from our communities about the draft plan. 

2017-18

The Annual Business Plan including the budget and rating policies for 2017-18 was adopted by Council at its meeting on 4 July 2017.
