Draft Integrated Planning and Reporting documents

Consultation has concluded

On the 9th of October 2018 Council endorsed a decision to proceed with an application to IPART for a Special Rate Variation (SRV) increase of 7.5% per annum (including rate peg) over seven-years, to be a permanent increase which will be retained within the rate base.

As part of the SRV application, Council must demonstrate its capacity to deliver projects funded by a SRV by revising its Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) documents, (as legislated under the Local Government Act 1993 documents) and publicly exhibit these documents for community comment.

The draft IP&R documents are available for Public Exhibition from Wednesday 14 November to Friday 21 December 2018, and include:

  • Delivery Program and Operational Plans 2018-2021
  • Long Term Financial Plan 2019 -2029
  • Strategic Asset Management Plan 2019 – 2029 (SAMP9)
  • Workforce Plan 2018-2021
  • Debt Recovery and Hardship Policy incorporating a Rates Assistance Program

The documents can be viewed online, at the Port Stephens Council Administration Building, Raymond Terrace Library, Tomaree Library and mobile library locations. You can see how the proposed rates and charges will affect you over the life of the SRV by viewing the appropriate Ready Reckoner by clicking the Draft IP&R and other key documents tab on the right of the page.
