Draft Annual Business Plan 18/19

We are seeking your feedback on our 2018/19 Draft Annual Business Plan.

The Draft Annual Business Plan has been developed within an overall planning framework which sets the strategic directions for the City of Charles Sturt over the medium and long term. The Annual Business Plan converts these into annual actions and outputs.

Financial modelling tools are used to examine the potential long term impact of decisions made by Council. The modelling provides a high-level budget framework to guide us when preparing the budget detail and ensure we understand the impact of decisions made today on our future.

In 2018/19 the City of Charles Sturt has continued with a strategy that will maintain the operating surplus position it has achieved in ensuring we continue to be financially sustainable whilst delivering the range of services and infrastructure for affordable rates.

The high level framework for development of the annual budget 2018/19 proposes a 1.8% rates increase plus assumes new property growth of 1.0%, for which it would deliver:

  • Core services such as maintenance of parks, reserves, roads and community buildings, waste collection and recycling services, development planning and compliance, and provision of five library services throughout the City at a total operating cost (excluding depreciation) of $88.373m.
  • Additional annual operating initiatives of $2.15m including economic development and initiatives to support business, school holiday sports programs, and greening the City projects.
  • A Capital works program investing $67.3m (net council’s contribution of $55.12m for road and footpath program, traffic management initiatives, playgrounds, continuation of flood mitigation stormwater works on Port Road, upgrade of the St Clair Recreation centre and West Beach Rockwall.

The Draft plan includes projects for consultation which we will review against the high level budget parameters in determining the final budget and rates increase.

Your feedback on these projects will help us decide the priorities in the final budget.
