Our key plans and strategies outline how we'll tackle the challenges of the future. Our overarching strategy document is the Community Strategic Plan. Here you’ll get a snapshot of all our current strategies. We're working towards new Northern Beaches Council strategies for things that matter to you, in the meantime former strategies will help guide decision making.

Asset Management Strategy

This Asset Management Strategy defines objectives that will improve our management practices and knowledge of all assets. It provides a road map to support the achievement of the community’s vision: Northern Beaches - a safe, diverse, inclusive and connected community that lives in balance with our extraordinary coastal and bushland environment.

The Asset Management Plan is a ten year document for investment into our infrastructure that discusses the considerations between risk, performance and cost across our asset portfolio.
