Council plans for the provision of sufficient resources – time, money, assets and people – to implement the strategies of the Community Strategic Plan.
The Resourcing Strategy includes:
The Long Term Financial Plan tests the community aspirations against its financial capacity and includes the projected income and expenditure, balance sheet, cash flow statements, planning assumptions, sensitivity analysis, financial modelling for different scenarios and methods of monitoring financial performance.
Workforce Management Planning
The Workforce Management Plan contains strategies to provide Council with the best people to inform its strategic direction, develop innovative approaches to complex issues and deliver services effectively and efficiently.
Asset Management Planning
Council manages a vast infrastructure network comprising transport, water and sewer services, recreational facilities and buildings. Infrastructure is what supports a community and is quite often taken for granted until something fails or no longer can provide an expected service.
These infrastructure assets represent a huge investment from the community, which has been built up over a long period of time. Council is responsible for ensuring that our infrastructure networks are resilient and are provided in a sustainable way.
Some of the main drivers of asset management are to ensure Council can:
● Plan and finance asset renewal.
● Use available resources effectively, efficiently and sustainably.
● Reduce network failures and provide infrastructure assets at agreed levels of service.
