Integrated Planning and Reporting

To provide services that meet community needs both currently and into the future, Council has prepared a range of documentation which can be accessed from this page.

Kyogle Council, in line with NSW Local Government reforms, has introduced a new integrated planning and reporting (IP&R) framework. The aim of the new integrated system is to enhance Council’s long-term planning in line with the aspirations and wishes of the community.

As part of the framework, Council is required to prepare a long-term Community Strategic Plan (CSP) with a Resourcing Strategy, a Community Engagement Strategy, a Four Year Delivery Program and an annual Operational Plan. They replace the former Management Plan and Social Plan.

The Community Strategic Plan identifies the community’s main priorities and aspirations for the future and sets out strategies for achieving these goals.

It is supported by a suite of other Council plans and documents, including:

  • The Delivery Program, which sets out the projects and services Council will deliver over the next four years (2016-2020) that work toward achieving the outcomes identified in the Community Strategic Plan
  • The Operational Plan which contains a high level of detail of Council’s budget, actions and projects for each financial year;
  • The Asset Management Strategy which provides detailed information on the type and condition of council’s assets and their expected renewal requirements.
  • The Long Term Financial Plan which brings the budget, resourcing, and asset management components together.

Every year Kyogle Council also puts out an annual report outlining its achievements over the last 12 months and performance in key service areas.

The report, required under the Local Government Act 1993, also provides information on the the condition of council’s assets and links to its audited financial statements and State of the Environment Report.
