  • Draft Annual Business plan now available for comment

    4 months ago
    Light_bulb_energy_sm_cropped

    The Draft Annual Business Plan has been developed within an overall planning framework which sets the strategic directions for the Council over the medium and long term and converts these into annual actions and outputs.

    Council uses financial modelling tools to examine the potential impact of its decisions over the long term in determining what the community can afford for a level of rates, debt and services. The modelling provides a high level budget framework to guide us when preparing the budget detail and ensure we understand the impact of decisions made today on our future.

    We are now seeking community feedback!

    This year, we have developed a wide range of ways you can have a say. You can join in with our exciting new Budget Webinar, make a submission, participate in a discussion forum and more! Go here to get involved.

  • Illegal dumping in our City

    4 months ago
    Illegal_dumping_3

    Have you experienced illegal dumping in your neighborhood?

    We are undertaking a review of the way we manage illegal dumping in our City and need your help.

    Illegal dumping is the unauthorised deposit of waste (larger than litter) onto private or public land where no licence or approval exists to accept or deposit such waste. In simple terms - any item that is placed onto the kerbside (or any other public or private land) outside of Council’s hard waste and kerbside bin services.

    We would love to hear your experiences of illegal dumping within our City. Go here to complete a survey and provide your feedback.
