Corporate Publications

Legislation requires Council to establish a number of plans upon which it relies for future decision making. Many of these can be viewed and printed from the table below.

Two of Council's key planning documents are the Corporate Plan and the Operational Plan.  

Corporate Plan

Please note, Council's Corporate Plan is due to be superseded by the Community Strategic Plan in 2023.
The Corporate Plan is a 5 year strategic document that informs the direction and priorities of Council over the period. This document defines the commitments and outcomes that Council intends to achieve and outlines action areas to deliver. The Corporate Plan captures Council’s internal priorities for our staff, decision-making processes and accountability, as well as our community, relating to service delivery, assets, programs, partnerships and the economy.
The Plan is structured around the following themes:
  • Economic Prosperity
  • Environmental Health
  • Social Cohesion
  • Culture & Heritage
  • Transparency & Accountability
  • Governance & Structure
  • Assets & Infrastructure
  • Customer Service
  • People First
  • Innovation & Transformation
The Corporate Plan, in conjunction with the Strategic Financial Plan, will set the Council's resource and budgeting priorities for the life of the Plan. Councillors are provided with a quarterly update by way of the Operational Plan reporting.
The Corporate Plan translates the community's vision into actionable programs deliverable by Council.  These measures are reported on through Council's Annual Report.
The Plan is adopted prior to the start of the first financial year covered by the plan and reviewed on an annual basis.
Council's 2021-2025 Corporate Plan was adopted 19 May 2021, and is available for inspection at the Administration Centre and Excelsior Library. A fee is charged for copies of the Corporate Plan that are printed and released to members of the public.

Operational Plan

The Operational Plan links Council's strategic directions (set out in the Corporate Plan) to the projects, initiatives and ongoing activities to be delivered for a particular financial year, and funded through Council's annual budget. The plan is comprised of a number of key activities and outputs which Council is committed to delivering over a financial year. Council is required to report quarterly on the progress of all operational activities to ensure financial responsibility and the sustainability of our Region and community assets.

The Operational Plan for 2022/2023 was adopted by General Meeting of Council on 29 June 2022.

Progress on the implementation of the Corporate and Operational Plans is measured using a suite of performance measures and reported quarterly through the Corporate Performance Report, by the Chief Executive Officer to Council, and is viewable in the Agendas published.
