Community Strategic Plan
On 4 June 2012 Council resolved to adopt the Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework suite of documents following extensive community consultation. As part of this process Our Place…Our Future Community Strategic Plan 2025 was developed. This plan established an overarching framework based on the community’s main priorities and aspirations for the future of our area.
At the commencement of its term of office each new Council is required to review the Community Strategic Plan. The Community Strategic Plan 2030 is the result of this review. The plan has been updated following extensive consultation with the community and elected representatives. The Community Strategic Plan 2030 was adopted by Council on 26 June 2017.
Delivery Program 2017-21 & Operations Plan 2019-20
The Delivery Program 2017-2021 and Operational Plan 2019-2020 is a document that is required by the Local Government Act 1993 to identify “the Council’s activities for at least the current Council’s four year term of office; and the Council’s revenue policy for the next year”.
The Draft Operational Plan 2019-2020 achieves these requirements and builds upon last year’s Plan to incorporate the strategies from the Community Strategic Plan 2030.
Long Term Financial Plan
The financial modelling supporting the Long Term Financial Plan 2019-2029 is used to forecast the Councils financial future over 10 years. The Strategy is a tool which provides for decision making and problem solving, enabling decisions to be made on how to best achieve the Council’s corporate objectives while addressing its long term financial challenges. The Long Term Financial Plan is not intended as a document to indicate what services or proposals should be allocated funds, but rather it addresses areas that impact on Council’s ability to fund its services and capital works whilst maintaining financial sustainability.
Strategic Asset Management Plan
Lithgow City Council has a responsibility to provide an extensive range of services to the community, and these services rely on the acquisition of assets. These assets in turn need to be operated effectively and maintained in a satisfactory condition, all of which requires resources. This Strategic Asset Management Plan sets the framework for how Lithgow City Council intends on setting directions to determine how assets should be operated, maintained, acquired and disposed of over the next ten (10) years.
