Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework
The Integrated Planning and Reporting framework recognises that most communities share similar aspirations: a safe, healthy and pleasant place to live, a sustainable environment, opportunities for social interaction, opportunities for employment, reliable infrastructure, etc. The difference lies in how each community responds to these needs. That is what shapes the character of individual towns and cities.
The framework also recognises that the council plans and policies should not exist in isolation and that they are, in fact, connected. This framework allows NSW councils to draw their various plans together, to understand how they interact and to get the maximum leverage from their efforts by planning holistically for the future.
All councils in NSW are required to be working within the Integrated Planning and Reporting framework (shown below).
Coonamble Shire Council’s suite of Integrated Planning and Reporting documents has been prepared in line with the NSW Government’s framework requirements outlined above.
Community Engagement Strategy
The Community Engagement Strategy identifies stakeholders and the methods of engaging each of these groups for the development and review of the Community Strategic Plan.

Community Strategic Plan
The Community Strategic Plan identifies the community’s vision, wishes and desires for the development of a positive future, regardless of whether its components fall within the responsibility of Local Government or not. It is the community's long-term vision, usually over a 10-year period. Download a copy of the Community Strategic Plan below.
Delivery Program and Operational Plan
The Delivery Program is a four-year plan for Council that identifies and prioritises those components of the Community Strategic Plan that are within the sphere of control and responsibility of Council. Meanwhile, the Operational Plan and Budget is a one-year plan and budget that sets performance measures to ensure the activities of the Delivery Program are systematically implemented and achieved. The budget captures the anticipated cost of implementing the activities of the Operational Plan. Download a copy of the current Delivery Plan and Operational Plan below.
The Resourcing Strategy identifies how Council will achieve the objectives of the Community Strategic Plan and consists of the following:
- Long Term Financial Plan (10-year plan) projecting Council’s financial position for at least 10 years and includes improvement strategies proposed by Council to improve sustainability.
- The Statement of Revenue Policy provides information on Council’s rating structure, fees and charges, including a comparison of proposed modifications to the rate base.
- The Workforce Management Plan, outlining Council’s strategies and actions for developing and maintaining a workforce to underpin the delivery of four-year objectives outlined in the Delivery Program.
- Asset Management Plans (10-year plans) including: Transport, Water and Sewerage.
- The Strategic Asset Management Plan 2022-2032.
