Integrated planning and reporting gives local governments a framework for establishing local priorities and to link this information to operational functions.
To achieve an integrated strategic planning process, at least two plans are needed - a Strategic Community Plan and a Corporate Business Plan. The Strategic Plan outlines the community's long term vision and priorities. The Corporate Business Plan ensures these priorities and services are resourced and fully integrated into our long term financial planning, workforce planning, asset management and annual budgets. A range of inputs, including a biennial community perceptions survey, are considered when developing the Corporate Business Plan.
