Wollondilly's Corporate Planning Documents
The Integrated Planning and Reporting framework (IP&R) for Local Councils in NSW was introduced by the Department of Local Government in 2009. IP&R is another name for what most of us would call corporate planning.
Under the IP&R framework, Councils need to prepare a Community Strategic Plan (CSP) as their highest level long term plan. The CSP expresses the aspirations held by the community of Wollondilly and sets strategies for achieving those aspirations.
Supporting the CSP is a Resourcing Strategy which is made up of:
A 10 year Long Term Financial Plan;
A 4 year Workforce Management Strategy; and
A 10 year Asset Management Strategy.
Council then prepares a 4 year Delivery Program (which outlines Council’s commitment to the implementation of the CSP and which is aligned with the 4 year term of Council). Council’s annual Operational Plan is included as part of the 4-year Delivery Program.
Although the CSP is a long term strategic document it is reviewed on a 4-yearly rolling cycle to align with the incoming Council. It is therefore an important document to set and guide the direction of an elected Council during its electrol term.
