The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is proposing to make various amendments to the Council’s Community Land Management Plans, pursuant to Section 198(2) of the Local Government Act 1999 (the Act)

What are Community Land Management Plans?

In accordance with the Act, all councils are required to prepare and adopt Community Land Management Plans for all Community Land located within their Council area. Community Land includes parks and reserves, sporting facilities, civic and community facilities, and operational land.

Community Land Management Plans set out the Council’s objectives, strategies and performance targets for ongoing management and use of community land.

For more information on the Council’s Community Land Management Plans, visit: Community Land Management Plans

Review of Community Land Management Plans

A review of the Council’s Community Land Management Plans has been undertaken following one year of operation. A number of amendments are proposed to update information and to ensure consistency with other Council strategic plans and recent legislative changes.

In addition, some changes have been made to the leasing and licensing provisions in the Plans to accommodate existing arrangements entered into with tenants since the adoption of the Plans and proposed arrangements moving forward.

A table providing an overview of the proposed amendments is available for download below, along with the amended Plans.

Norwood Parade Precinct Consultation

Consultation closes 5pm Wednesday 28 April 2021

2021 2022 NPPC Annual Business Plan Tile

 

 

 

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is seeking comments from The Parade, Norwood business community on the:

  • proposal to continue the Separate Rate applied to Parade commercial properties for the next three financial years
  • Draft 2021-2022 Parade Precinct Annual Business Plan.

Continuation of Separate Rate

The Separate Rate enables the Council to raise sufficient revenue to ensure high impact marketing and promotional programs for The Parade, whilst minimising the impact on individual ratepayers who will experience the benefits of these program through increased patronage.

The Council is proposing that the Separate Rate be set at $215,000 for the 2021-2022, 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 financial years to assist with marketing, promotion and development of The Parade as one of Adelaide’s premier destination precincts.

This Separate Rate model for The Parade has been designed to ensure that The Parade remains viable in an increasingly competitive market, whilst bearing in mind the additional cost to the property owners and businesses.

The Parade Separate Rate was not collected for the 2020-2021 financial year due to the impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The budget normally generated by the collection of the Separate Rate was instead funded by the Council to enable to the marketing and promotion of The Parade to continue.

Long-term Financial Plan 2021-2031 (consultation closed)

Long Term Financial Plan 2021 2031 thumb

 

 

 

Background

The Local Government Act 1999 requires all councils to prepare a Long-term Financial Plan (“the Plan”) covering a period of at least ten years. 

The Long-term Financial Plan is a key document in the Council’s Strategic Planning Framework. It is the primary financial management tool linking the Councils' Strategic Plan, CityPlan 2030, Whole of Life Asset Management Plans and the Annual Business Plan and Budget

About

As a result of the financial and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Council responded with a $1.159 million Financial Support Package in the 2020-2021 Budget, with the main element of that package being a 0% rate revenue increase, which for wider community resulted in a zero rate increase. 

The long-term financial impact of the zero percent increase over the 10-year life of the LTFP, is a loss of rate revenue in the order of $7.8 million.

The Plan assumes that from 2021–2031, the Council has implemented changes to its operations and that the provision of existing services, programs and activities have resumed.

The financial projections contained within the Plan provide an indication of the Council’s direction and financial capacity rather than predicting the future financial performance and position of the Council. The Plan should be viewed as a guide to future actions or opportunities which encourages Council to think about the future impact of decisions made today on the Council’s long-term financial sustainability.
