  • Draft Annual Business Plan 2019-20: This proposes an increase in rates of 2.1% with a further .5% provided by growth (new developments and extensions). The projects includes new Operating Projects of $1 million, New Capital  of $17.191 million and Capital Replacement of $4.161 million.

  • Volunteer Management Policy: Unley has 267 active volunteers who contribute nearly $million dollars worth of hours each year that assist in the running of Council programmes. This updates the Management Policy for these individuals
  • Reduction of the Use of Plastic Bottles Dispensed at Council Venues: In reality Council uses little bottled water and is making some effort to reduce the use further where possible.
  • Council Assessment Panel-Appointment of a Deputy Member: The CAP has 5 members, 4 of whom are Independent and one who is a Councillor. While the councillor has a deputy (Cr Wright) the Independent members do not. This has meant that from time to time there have been as few a 3 people making a decision that is binding.  A deputy will be able to replace any of the 4 independents for all or part of a meeting.
  • City of Unley Sesquicentennial Celebration: Unley is 150 years old in 2021. This motion asks for a working party to be formed to work on what celebrations would be welcomed by our residents
