Consultation has concluded

Have your say on our community's assets to ensure that our Asset Management Plans meet future community needs.

What are Asset Management Plans?

Council is responsible for the management of more than $524.5m worth of assets for our community. Asset Management Plans (Plan/s) are developed to assist Council in managing these assets to an agreed standard of service, and to meet the needs of current and future users.

Council has four Plans that outline what is required to meet these defined service standards over the next 10 years.

Each Plan focuses on a distinct class:

What are Asset Management Plans?

Council is responsible for the management of more than $524.5m worth of assets for our community. Asset Management Plans (Plan/s) are developed to assist Council in managing these assets to an agreed standard of service, and to meet the needs of current and future users.

Council has four Plans that outline what is required to meet these defined service standards over the next 10 years.

Each Plan focuses on a distinct class:

buildings - such as the library, community centres and sport facilities.

open space - parks, playgrounds, bins, street furniture and lighting.

stormwater - drains, culverts and stormwater pits.

transport - footpaths, roads, kerbs and traffic control devices.


The Plans are Council's approach to managing our community's assets and include service levels, proposed funding requirements, forecasts of community needs, renewal and upgrade cycles and maintenance Plans.

Why are you consulting me?

The existing Plans are being revised, and Council is seeking your opinion on the current state of our community's assets, and how they are managed.

This feedback will be used to ensure that the future service levels and funding proposed for each of our asset classes is appropriate.

The revised AMPs

The existing Plans have been reviewed based on the management history of the assets and community satisfaction feedback from the November 2015 Annual Community Survey.

Your opinion will also inform the Plans to ensure that they deliver in line with community needs into the future.

What about the financial implications?

The financial implications of managing assets to achieve current and future service levels for the next 10 years - through renewal, upgrade and maintenance - are also defined within the Plans.

A summary of the proposed investment required to achieve these service levels is shown below. More detail on each asset class can be found within the Plan documents.

Where can I find copies of the Plans?

The four draft Plans (buildings, open space, stormwater and transport) and a Summary Information document are available in the Document Library (top right hand corner of this screen) and for viewing at the Civic Centre.

    21 November, 2016

    The Asset Management Plans engagement was open for community feedback from 22 September to 21 October 2016. Over 800 responses were received throughout this period.

    Key feedback from the consultation included a high level of satisfaction (97 per cent) in relation to the maintenance, cleanliness and safety of council buildings; and 68 per cent felt more could be done to improve the accessibility of our buildings.

    Footpaths generally rated well although 31 per cent said that more could be done to make them safer.

    80 – 90 per cent of respondents said our roads are well maintained, clean, accessible and safe.

    Overall there was general satisfaction that our stormwater system allows use of paths and roads in heavy rain (87 per cent). There was some concern (23 per cent) regarding the stormwater system protecting properties from flooding.

    The majority of the respondents (92-96 per cent) said our street furniture is well maintained, clean, accessible and safe; and 75 per cent were satisfied with the lighting of footpaths and roads.

    Our Library was rated as the most frequently visited council building, with 41 per cent of respondents saying they visited at least monthly.

    Three main areas of concern were raised and Council’s response to these comprises:

    · An audit of all of Council owned buildings scheduled to occur this year to identify accessibility issues. Issues raised can be included in Council’s schedule of works to progressively address any gaps.

    · As a full review of our approach to renewing footpaths was recently undertaken, there is now a systematic, priority-based approach to addressing footpath defects in place. These changes should assist in improving the overall quality of our footpaths.

    · A recently completed stormwater capacity study for our entire Council area to identify key areas for flooding. This information will be used to develop our future program of works to improving drainage infrastructure. The stormwater issues raised in relation to recent flooding events are also currently being evaluated and prioritised.

    All four Asset Management Plans have now undergone a full review and were endorsed by Council on 8 November 2016. The updated documents are available on our website, www.burnside.sa.gov.au
