Budget Consultation 2014/2015

Consultation has concluded


Review the 2014/2015 Draft Annual Business Plan and Budget!




Council has endorsed a Draft Annual Business Plan and Budget for Consultation. During this second of consultation we are asking you to review the Draft Annual Business Plan and tell us what you think!

Currently the Plan includes a range of Capital Projects (New and Upgrade works) and Operating Projects (service level increases or non-capital project items) in excess of the Long term Financial Plan parameters. The intent of this is to allow the community to provide feedback against projects that they do not see as having a high degree of merit, that could either be stopped, deferred or allocated less funds.

The parameters of the endorsed Long Term Financial Plan dictate that expenditure that can occur for Council to remain Financially Sustainable with the identified total rate for 2014/15 increase which is targeted to be 5.2%, this will equate to a residential rate increase in the order of 4.5 – 5%.

The quantum of projects that are over the Long Term Financial Plan targets is around $900k for Operating Projects and $3.6m for New and Upgrade Capital Works.



There are a number of ways you can get involved:

  • Review the Draft Annual Business Plan here
  • Tell us what you think by making a submission
  • Ask a question using the Q&A tool
  • Come along to the open evening on 30 April, 4.30-7.00pm at the Civic Library

Consultation closes Monday 5 May 2014.
