Draft One Year Operational Plan 2021-22

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Consultation has concluded

Our 2021/22 Operational Plan was drafted prior to the March 2021 flood and storms.

The storm and floods have caused significant widespread damage and disruption for our community and our organisation.
Our staff are working hard to restore access to properties, repair damaged roads and bridges, whilst also liaising with a wide range of government and non-government agencies who are providing disaster relief services to our community.

Our 2021/22 Operational Plan will be reviewed in light of these events and we will share this with you in the coming weeks.
If you have suggestions on the current priorities or what Council should focus on for the next 12 months, please let us know through the submission form below.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.


Over the next month the Port Macquarie Hastings community are invited to ‘have your say’ on Council’s proposed actions, activities, projects, budget and performance measures for the 2021-22 financial year.

The draft Operational Plan is the last annual plan during the current term of Council, before the next Council election in September this year, and is available to have your say until 30 April 2021.

The draft Operational Plan is part of Council’s integrated suite of planning documents, and demonstrates how Council is achieving the objectives and vision of the Community Strategic Plan.

Continuing to plan for and deliver the infrastructure to accommodate the continuing growth that the Port Macquarie Hastings local government area is experiencing remains a major focus for Council. This includes providing:

  • waste,
  • water and sewer services,
  • road rehabilitation and maintenance,
  • stormwater maintenance.
  • vegetation management, and
  • future planning for the region’s growing infrastructure needs.

In addition, the ongoing development and maintenance of our parks, reserves, and sporting grounds and construction and maintenance of footpaths is a high priority, as Council works hard to ensure our area can cope with the current and anticipated future growth.

Planned budget

Our projected income for the 2021-22 financial year is expected to be $208.9 million, and total expenditure is $194.1 million, which includes…

  • $116.37m on the ongoing operational costs (excluding depreciation and loss on disposal of assets)
  • $58.64m on capital works projects
  • $12.59m on the cost of servicing debts (including loan repayments and interest)
  • $6.50m on developer provided assets

Key projects

A few of the key projects proposed in the Draft One Year Operational Plan 2021-22 include:

  • Undertake road resurfacing and rehabilitation works across the LGA;
  • Deliver sporting facility renewal and upgrades program across the LGA
  • Kew Main Street Upgrade;
  • Rainbow Beach Sports Fields - commence construction;
  • Gordon Street Upgrade
  • Westport Park - continue boat ramp parking upgrade
  • Hastings Regional Sporting Complex - Completion of preconstruction
  • Pappinbarra Bridge Replacement - Design and Construction
  • Pembrooke Road Beechwood Rd & Stoney Creek Rd
  • Bril Bril Road Sealing - Investigations and concept design

    The plan is in PDF format based on pictures. Is there a version that is based on text so that people can search (Ctrl+F) for related or specific terms rather than read the entire 100 plus pages of the document?

    Simon Thresher asked 5 months ago

    Hi Simon - apologies for the delay in getting back to you. We do not have a text based version of the plan but you should be able search the pdf version use CTRL-F and your search term. This should work in both the web based pdf viewer and other pdf viewers such as Adobe Acrobat Reader
