Draft 2017-2021 (Revised 2019) Delivery Program and 2019-2020 Operational Plan

Consultation has concluded

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 2019/20 financial year.

The 2019/20 draft Operational Plan is the third annual plan since the Council election held in September 2016, and is on public exhibition until Thursday 18 April.

The draft 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 and vegetation management as well as 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.

A few of the key projects that are proposed in the 2019/2020 draft Operational Plan include:

  • Finalising construction of the upgraded Port Macquarie Airport Terminal

  • Commencing work on the establishment of new sporting facilities at Rainbow Beach

  • Continuing construction of the Kew Sewerage Treatment Plant upgrade

  • Finalising design for the Port Macquarie Aquatic Facility

  • Reconstruction of The Ruins Way

  • Stage two of the upgrade to Bago Road

  • Construction of the Hastings Regional Sporting Complex

You are invited to have a look at the draft documents and to have your say. All documents on exhibition are available in the Document Library section on your right (or below if you are using a mobile device).

  • Draft 2017-2021 Delivery Program (DP) (Revised 2019)
    Developed by the newly elected council following the September 2016 local election to cover a four year period 2017-2021. It outlines Council’s commitment to the Port Macquarie-Hastings community during the four-year term of office. These commitments focus on achieving strategic goals of the Community Strategic Plan (CSP), that are translated into actions relating to individual projects and activities detailed in the Operational Plan (OP).
  • Draft 2019-2020 Operational Plan (OP)
    A one year sub-plan of the Delivery Program that lists individual actions that will be undertaken during the financial year. The Operational Plan also includes, Schedule of Fees and Charges, Revenue Policy and Rating Maps.

A snapshot of key projects taking place in the Camden Haven, Port Macquarie and Wauchope regions and a Budget Snapshot can be seen in the Document Library (to the right) as well as a handy Fact Sheet for those community members who would like a high-level overview of the draft Plan.

The plans are on exhibition until Thursday 18 April 2019 and a viewing copy is available at Council Libraries and Customer Services Centres in Laurieton, Port Macquarie and Wauchope.
