2014/15 Draft Annual Business Plan and Budget

Consultation has concluded

Have your say on the Draft 2014/15 Annual Business Plan and Budget

Over the past year Council has received many great ideas for our City, including those received in our inaugural Community Survey and these have helped us develop this Draft Annual Business Plan and Budget.

The development of our Draft 2014/15 Annual Business Plan and Budget is an important part of our planning. It links our Strategic Community Plan – Be The Future of Burnside 2012-2025 with our budget planning process to ensure that we achieve the best possible mix of services, infrastructure and facilities for our communities.

This Annual Business Plan and Budget has been developed as a draft to enable the provision of community feedback prior to the adoption of the final business plan and budget for 2014/15.

Council is determined to engage with our communities on a balanced budget for 2014/15. We are seeking your feedback!

The results also indicated that a number of services should be maintained at the same level of expenditure. These included roads, kerbs, drainage, traffic, parking, youth services, purchase of library materials as well as community facilities.

    The Annual Business Plan and Budget 2014/15 was adopted on 24 June 2014. It details the programs and services that Council will implement and the outcomes it seeks to achieve for the financial year.

    The Annual Business Plan and Budget 2014/15 has been prepared to:

    • Provide a sustainable budget position that reflects our community’s needs and expectations;
    • Avoid reducing services or service standards and the resulting impacts on our community;
    • Continue to meet current commitments, strategies and plans in relation to our projects and capital works, in particular the George Bolton Swimming Pool and Glenunga Hub;
    • Align with our long-term financial sustainability objectives;
    • Continue to deliver on the Strategic Community Plan.

    In tandem with our Strategic Community Plan, we have developed a rolling 10-year financial plan, which we call our Long-Term Financial Plan, which will ensure we deliver the Desired Outcomes of the Community Plan.
