Consultation has concluded

Great News! The Annual Business Plan and Budget 2021 – 22 has been endorsed.

This year we will reduce the operating deficit by $2 million and keep the rate revenue increase to CPI (1.2 per cent) plus growth, one of the lowest in the state, while ensuring we still deliver the services and projects our community need.

We were pleased to receive 40 submissions this year, the most we have ever received. All submissions were presented at the meeting on 29 June 2021, where Council preceded to endorse the Annual Business Plan and Budget 2021 - 22. We’ve also created a Snapshot.
