Council's Corporate Planning and Reporting
Coffs Harbour City Council uses a suite of strategic tools to set out the budgets, activities and performance measures to be pursued to help achieve the organisation's objectives.
The format meets the legislative requirements of the State's Integrated Planning and Reporting (IPR) Framework. The framework is intended to enhance local councils' long-term focus in line with the aspirations of their communities. It is also designed to make councils more accountable.
Council sets out the activities it proposes to pursue through a four-year Delivery Program and a subsidiary, one-year Operational Plan (accompanied by Program Budgets and a schedule of Council Fees and Charges). The format matches the thematic structure of the Coffs Harbour 2030 Community Strategic Plan and is supported by a Resourcing Strategy that addresses Long Term Financial Planning, Asset Management and Workforce Management. The Delivery Program and Operational Plan have to be reviewed every year.
The 2015/2019 Delivery Program, 2015/2016 Operational Plan, Division Budgets 2015/2019 and 2015/2016 Fees and Charges were adopted on 11 June 2015. The budget strategy includes two central features:
·         Special Rate Variations (SRVs) in 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 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.
