2023-2024 Operational Plan including 2022-2025 Delivery Program

The council has combined the annual Operational Plan with its four-year Delivery Program 2022-2025 in one document.  The Delivery Program outlines how Council will contribute to achieving the vision set out in the Community Strategic Plan 2032.

 
Supporting the Delivery Program is an annual Operational Plan. Adopted by Council each year alongside its annual Budget, the Operational Plan identifies the plans, projects and activities that will be carried out over the financial year covered by the Operational Plan to achieve the commitments made in the Delivery Program.
 
The Operational Plan includes the Budget, Fees & Charges, and Revenue Policy for the 2023-2024 financial year.  The Fees & Charges are available as a separate document.
 
The combined Delivery Plan 2022-2025 and 2023-2024 Operational Plan is available to download.
