Draft Long Term Financial Plan

Council resolved at its meeting on 14 April, 2020 to place the draft review of its Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP) 2021/2034 on public exhibition.

This review consolidates the delivery of the first five years of the 20-year LTFP originally adopted by Council in 2014. The plan provided Council and the community with a robust strategic direction to ensure the long-term financial sustainability of the area.

The plan included an above rate pegging Special Rate Variation that was approved by IPART, had a heavy reliance on external grant funding, and required the delivery of an ambitious capital works program over the first few years to address the infrastructure backlog. At this point, Council has exceeded expectations in relation to levels of external funding, and has delivered on an ambitious capital works program, and is well on the way to reducing its infrastructure backlog to the target levels in the coming years.

The next phase in the delivery of the LTFP is focused on the long-term sustainability of Council without the need for further above rate pegging increases, minimal borrowings, and a reduction in the reliance on external grant funding.

The Base Case developed as part of this review has been established on these foundations. The Base Case still includes a conservative level of ongoing external grant funding, and some major projects are subject to assumed levels of funding in order to be completed. Council will continue to focus on the planning and preparation required to ensure that we are ready to deliver for our community and funding partners when opportunities arise.

The draft LTFP will be on public exhibition until 4pm Friday, 15 May, 2020. Ratepayers and residents are encouraged to review the draft LTFP and provide feedback to the Council in the form of written submissions. To view the document, click here.
