Asset Management planning is a comprehensive process to ensure detailed information on all Council assets is available and delivery of services from assets is provided in a financially sustainable manner.

The Community Strategic Plan is the highest level plan that Council prepares. Its purpose is to identify the community’s main priorities and aspirations for the future and to plan strategies for achieving these goals. In doing this, the planning process considers the issues and pressures that may affect the community and the level of resources that will realistically be available to achieve its aspirations.

While Council has a custodial role in initiating, preparing and maintaining the Community Strategic Plan on behalf of the community, it is not wholly responsible for its implementation. Other partners, such as other level of government and community groups are also responsible for the delivery of long term strategies in the Plan. These responsibilities are also identified in the Plan.
