Operational Plan and Budget 2024/25


The Operational Plan and Budget 2024/25 outlines the projects, programs and activities that Council plans to undertake during the 2024/25 financial year. It also details the cost of delivering these activities and how Council will monitor and measure performance.

The Operational Plan and Budget 2024/25 is a companion document to Council's Delivery Program 2023-2025 which sets out the principal activities and core business to be delivered by Council between now and the end of June 2025.

All councils in NSW are required to have an Operational Plan which addresses community priorities, supports the commitments in the Delivery Program and ensures the Council remains financially sustainable, responsible and accountable.

Draft Resourcing Strategy 2024 - 2034


The Draft Resourcing Strategy 2024 - 2034 helps to guide decision making about resource allocation, investment and project delivery. It informs how we prioritise valuable resources across a variety of services - from waste and water services to the provision of libraries, recreation facilities and local roads.

Together with Council's Delivery Program 2023 - 2025 and our annual Operational Plan and Budget, it provides the community with visibility of the costs attached to service delivery. It also serves to provide information about resourcing challenges and strategies to remedy these.

The Community Strategic Plan (CSP) is a whole of community plan in which all levels of government, business and educational institutions play an important role in delivering on the community vision and aspirations for the Shire. The purpose of the Resourcing Strategy is to articulate how Council intends to allocate its resources to deliver services and implement the strategies set out in the CSP. It focusses, in detail, on matters which are the responsibility of Council and how the resources allocated will deliver the objectives under its responsibility.

The Resourcing Strategy consists of four parts:

  1. Long Term Financial Plan 2024 - 2034
  2. Asset Management Strategy 2024 - 2034
  3. Digital Strategy 2023 - 2025
  4. Workforce Management Strategy 2023 - 2025
