Shellharbour City Council adopts key strategic planning documents

Shellharbour City Council has adopted its Delivery Program for 2018 – 2022, its Operational Plan for 2021 – 2022, Long Term Financial Plan for 2021 – 2031 and Asset Management Plan for 2021-2031.

These documents are part of the Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework and in the case of the Operational Plan, set out Council’s planned actions (including budget) for the 2021-2022 financial year.

Council will continually engage with the community and deliver on their expectations in alignment with the Community Strategic Plan (CSP). This plan details the current and future plans for Council’s service areas and operational functions.

The Operational Plan has a strong focus on financial sustainability, enhancing our natural environment and asset renewal. It’s supported by a budget that details rates, fees, and charges, as well as specific actions for the financial year.

The Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP) forecasts council’s capacity to provide financial resources to meet the objectives of the CSP.

The 2021-2022 Operational Plan includes capital works totalling $46.8M. Key projects in the capital works program include:

• Shellharbour Airport Business Park

• Warilla Beach seawall renewal

• Oak Flats Depot redevelopment

• Shell Cove Marina facilities

• Additional sports field at Myimbarr Fields

• Albion Oval and Panorama Oval sports field facility renewals

• Playground renewals at Fred Ball Park & Collins Reserve

Council has been successful in securing grants to improve our transport network and these funds combined with Council allocations will deliver $6.9 million in road and footpath projects.

Shellharbour Mayor Marianne Saliba said the plans demonstrated Council’s progress towards achieving the community’s vision of a vibrant, sustainable, well-planned, economically strong and inclusive city.

“Council is committed to improving amenities, facilities and services, as well as upholding a strong fiscal responsibility to ensure the city’s long-term sustainability,” Cr Saliba said

“I’m looking forward to seeing council’s upcoming key projects unfold and the continued delivery of its services and facilities.

The program plays a significant role in shaping the daily lives of our community, stimulating the economy and progressing the city into the future,” she said.
