Annual Business Plans

Introduction

Section 123 of the Local Government Act 1999 requires that each Local Government Authority must develop an Annual Business Plan and Budget for each financial year.

The Annual Business Plan sets out Council's program for the respective financial year to achieve the goals and objectives of Council's Strategic Management Plans.

The Annual Business Plan is based on the annual operating budget for service delivery and asset maintenance, and a capital works budget for the acquisition or enhancement of assets.  The Annual Business Plan and Budget are aimed at satisfying current service requirements and expanding service delivery where possible and affordable, whilst recognising the need to put Council in the best financial position to provide services to the members of our community, both today and into the future.

The Annual Business Plan focuses on ensuring the long-term financial sustainability of the Council to ensure that Council will be able to provide services for current and future generations, within rating and charging policies that are acceptable to the community.

Council is responsible for a wide range of services. Some of these are required under various Acts of Parliament and include: Planning, Building and Development, Environmental Health Services, Fire Prevention, Dog & Cat Management.

In addition to these, Council also provides services for the benefit of ratepayers and the community, such as Street Lighting, Roads Construction & Maintenance, Waste Management, Immunisation support, Health Services, Libraries Support, Recreation facilities, Reserves and picnic areas, Playgrounds, Caravan Park, Tourism, Community Water Waste Management Scheme, Economic Development, Cemeteries and numerous others. 

The Annual Business Plan is focused on the efficient and effective delivery of these services which are prescribed by legislation or provided in response to expressed community needs.

The Annual Business Plans are prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Act, part of which is to provide the community with an opportunity to comment on the Draft Annual Business Plan.

Community Forums are held throughout the District to outline the Draft Annual Business Plans and Budget and to provide community members with an opportunity to ask questions.

Formal written submissions are also welcomed as are verbal submissions before the Council at the appropraite meeting.
