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: 

  • The MyCoffs Community Strategic Plan - Long-term (minimum ten year) aspirations of the Coffs Harbour community.

  • Delivery Program - Council’s four-year plan to address the MyCoffs Community Strategic Plan (including four year budgets). The current Delivery Program has been extended to cover a fifth year (2021-22) because of the 12-month deferral of the local government elections due to COVID-19.

  • Operational Plan - What Council will undertake 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

  • End of Term Reports - Prepared prior to the end of a Council term and report on progress in achieving the Community Strategic Plan. (The planned 2020 End of Term Report has been deferred to 2021 in line with the changed election cycle).

  • Resourcing Strategy - Council's Long Term Financial Plan, Asset Management Strategy and Workforce Management Plan.

On 25 June 2020, Council adopted its 2017-2022 Delivery Program (Year 4) and supporting documents (see documents under Current Plans below).
