The Annual Business Plan identifies Council’s commitment to projects for 2017-18 and is derived from Council’s Strategic Management and Action Plan 2014-2018. The Plan aims to maintain and improve relevant, efficient services for the Community.

Council has adopted an ambitious 10 year Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP) with the end objective being financial sustainability. The 2017-18 Annual Business Plan is the third year of the LTFP and Council is committed to this 10 year journey which will include identifying and adopting specific objectives and actions for the year consistent with the Council’s Strategic Plan, Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP) and Infrastructure and Asset Management Plans (IAMP) to ensure the appropriate management of Council’s revenue.
