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).

Community Engagement Strategy

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.
