Long-term Financial Plan 2021-2031
Consultation closes 5:00pm, Wednesday 6 January 2021.
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
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.
