The integrated planning and reporting framework requires every NSW council to undertake long term planning that is based on community engagement and ensures activities are informed by long term plans for finances, assets and the workforce. The framework is designed so that Council and the community both have a clear picture of:

  • Where we want to go (Community Strategic Plan)
  • How we plan to get there (Delivery Program, Operational Plan, Resourcing Strategy)
  • How we will measure our progress (quarterly, annual and end of term reports)

The following diagram shows the relationship between the documents

Community Strategic Plan

The Community Strategic Plan defines our community’s vision and sets a direction for everything we must do over the next 10 years with our future planning, budgets and actions. The responsibility for making the long term community vision a reality rests with everyone and we look forward to working in close collaboration with the community, key partners and stakeholders in making Northern Beaches an even better place to live, work and play.

Delivery Program and Operational Plan

The Delivery Program outlines the work we will undertake over the next four years in response to community aspirations in the Community Strategic Plan. It outlines our key projects and services and how these will be funded.

The Operational Plan includes financial estimates and performance indicators that will be used to measure and determine the effectiveness of the activities detailed in the Plan.
