Integrated planning and reporting gives local governments a framework for establishing local priorities and to link this information to operational functions.
There are three major parties to the development of an integrated strategic plan:
1. The community – participates in a community planning process to determine major vision or intended big picture directions and also participates in regular reviews of those directions.
2. The Council – signs off the Strategic Community Plan resulting from the community planning process, the four year reviews updating that plan, and the annual budget.
3. The local government administration – supports delivery of the Strategic Community Plan, the four-yearly reviews, and annual budget through its corporate business planning.
To achieve an integrated strategic planning process at least two plans are needed - a Strategic Community Plan and a Corporate Business Plan.
