Council's Corporate Planning and Reporting
All Councils in NSW are tasked to produce a set of documents as part of the State Government’s Integrated Planning and Reporting (IPR) Framework. These documents set out where Coffs Harbour wants to be in ten years and how Council will respond to help achieve these aspirations through details of its budgets, activities and performance measures. 
The IPR documents are: 
  • Coffs Harbour 2030 (Community Strategic Plan) - Long-term (ten year) aspirations of the Coffs Harbour community. At the end of every four-year Council term, Council produces an End of Term Report to outline how we are progressing as a community towards meeting these aspirations.
  • Delivery Program - Council’s four-year plan to address Coffs Harbour 2030 (including four year budgets)
  • Operational Plan - What Council will deliver in the current financial year in implementing the Delivery Program (includes detailed budgets as well as fees and charges schedules)
  • Annual and 6-Monthly Reports - How Council performed against the Delivery Program and Operational Plan
  • Resourcing Strategy - Council's Long Term Financial Plan, Asset Management Strategy and Workforce Management Plan.

On 23 June 2016, Council adopted its Delivery Program 2016-2020, Operational Plan 2016/17, Delivery Program Budgets 2016-2020 and Fees and Charges 2016/17. These documents are implemented from 1 July 2016.


Improving Council's Financial Sustainability

Council's budgets for 2016-2020 include two central features that will assist our long-term financial sustainability:
·         A Special Rate Variation (SRV) in 2016/17 to assist Council to meet its infrastructure maintenance and renewal needs. Council’s SRV application was approved by the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) on 19 May 2015.


  • The ongoing Transformation to Sustainability (T2S) project to help the organisation address an underlying operational deficit.
