Draft Annual Business Plan 2015-16
.Before a council adopts it’s Annual Business Plan it must prepare a Draft Annual Business Plan and undertake a public consultation process.
In drafting the Draft Annual Business Plan 2015-16(External link), council seeks to achieve a reasonable degree of rate stability over time while ensuring ratepayers are paying for those services and infrastructure maintenance obligations they require.
A Long Term Financial Plan has been developed to assist Council with developing a budget within a prudent, longer-term financial framework. The key objective has been to ensure financial sustainability in the medium to long term, while still achieving Council’s goals as detailed in the Community Plan 2033 and Annual Plan objectives. This Long Term Financial Plan has informed the development of the Draft Annual Business Plan 2015-16(External link).
