In 2009 a new Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) framework for NSW local government was introduced. The IP&R framework requires councils to prepare a suite of long-term strategic documents, including a Community Strategic Plan, Resourcing Strategy and Delivery Program, as well as an annual Operational Plan. Integration of these strategic documents is key to effective long-term planning and assist us in providing ratepayers with the best level of service we can.
Council's Community Strategic Plan, Edward River 2050, sets out our community's aspirations for the next 28 years.
Council's Resourcing Strategy comprises the Asset Management Plan, Long Term Financial Plan and Workforce Management Plan.
The Annual Report provides a yearly summary of Council's performance and statutory reporting.
In the second quarter of 2021, Council conducted an extensive community consultation period. Here is the report.
Edward River Council is inviting members of the community to view and provide feedback on our draft Communications and Community Engagement Strategy.
