“This is a budget and Operational Plan focussed on getting the fundamentals right, providing value for money and securing our future financial management,” Craig Swift-McNair, General Manager Port Macquarie-Hastings Council.

The 2015 - 2016 Draft One Year Operational Plan outlines all the activities, programs and capital works Council will undertake during the next financial year.

Total expenditure for next financial year is $214.7m which includes $100m on the ongoing operational costs, $105m on capital works projects and $9.7m on the cost of servicing ongoing debt. Rates and annual charges make up 49% of this funding, with a further 28% in grants and contributions.

The community are encouraged to review Council’s plans and budget and have a say on what Council will deliver on your behalf next financial year.

Fact Sheets about the Draft Operational Plan and Draft Fees and Charges - Ferry Fees will help clarify what's proposed and how it is funded.


The plans are on exhibition until Friday 1 May, 2015. All submissions will be collated and assessed in order to prepare a final report to Council in June.
