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 2020/21 financial year.

The 2020/21 draft Operational Plan is the fourth and 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 Friday 17 April.

Draft Operational Plan

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.
  • 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

The total projected income for the 2020/21 financial year is $200.4 million, and total expenditure is $198.5 million, which includes…

  • $36.1 million on roads and transport;
  • $22.1 million on sewerage services;
  • $23.2 million on water supply;
  • $22.9 million on waste management;
  • $11.2 million on sport and recreation.

Key projects

A few of the key projects proposed in the 2020/2021 draft Operational Plan include:

  • Construction of the Kew Main Street Upgrade;
  • Commencing construction of the Rainbow Beach Sports Fields;
  • Upgrading Town Green West Reserve;
  • Continued rehabilitation of Bago Road;
  • Structural repairs to Kindee Bridge;
  • A focus on road resurfacing and rehabilitation across the region;
  • Finalising design for the Port Macquarie Aquatic Facility; and
  • Investigation and concept design for the potential sealing of Bril-Bril Road.

    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).

    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 the Schedule of Fees and Charges, Revenue Policy and Rating Maps.
