About our planning framework
It is based on the Integrated Planning and Reporting principles embedded in the Local Government Act but considers every document that guides the way Council operates as part of the framework in addition.
The sustainable Future Framework is how Council does business.
Community Strategic Plan: Wagga View 2040
As a community it is important for us to have a document that defines how we want to grow into the future. We also need to outline what we want and need as a community now. This document is called a Community Strategic Plan. The Community Strategic Plan guides us all in how to achieve these goals and how we can measure if we are on track or not.
This document is us. This document is Wagga View - 2040.
Delivery Program and Operational Plan
The Delivery Program identifies an elected Council's priorities for their term of office and the action required to meet the community's long-term vision as stated in the Community Strategic Plan 2040 - Waggaview
All Council plans, projects, activities and funding needs are directly linked to the Delivery Program. In preparing a Delivery Program, Council considers the available resources (as detailed in the three Resourcing Plans) and its resulting capacity to deliver services and projects to the community.
The Operational Plan is a sub-plan of the Delivery Program and sets out the projects, programs and activities to be undertaken in a 12 month period. The Operational Plan includes specific projects and budget allocations.
The Revenue and Pricing Policy outlines the scheduled fees and charges for Council's services and activities.
The Long Term Financial Plan outlines the future finances of Council's operations taking into consideration key elements such as rate movements, service levels to our community major infrastructure, assets replacement and renewals as well as borrowings and cash reserves.
The Workforce Plan aims to ensure Council's workforce has the right skills, at the right time and in the right quantities to ensure sustainable service delivery in the future.
The Asset Management Plans provides tools to assist Council's decision making on infrastructure funding needs, the impacts of budget decisions into the future and the resourcing requirements needed to meet agreed levels of service delivery.
The Wagga Wagga Spatial Plan provides clear strategic indicators for the development of Wagga Wagga over the next 30 years and beyond. It is the key strategic planning document for directing and managing urban growth and change.
Fit for the Future
The Fit For the Future Council Improvement Proposal outlines how Council plans on becoming Fit For the Future over the next 5 years. This document is Council's response to the Fit for the Future local government reform package announced by the State Government in September 2014.
