Your Dollars At Work
See how we invest every $100 of our $452 million budget.
Tuesday 15 June 2021
We, like every other NSW Council, are required to undertake long term financial planning with our community on services and facilities. This process is directed by the Integrated Planning and Reporting framework and is informed by plans for finances, assets and the workforce.
The delivery program sets out the work we will undertake over the next four years to address community priorities and needs as outlined in our Community Strategic Plan.
As part of delivery program, we prepare an annual budget that identifies our spending for the financial year. It includes expected income and expenditure for all planned services and infrastructure, as well as, ongoing maintenance and depreciation commitments.
Our Fees and Charges detail our proposed charges for services in 2021/22.
These documents were exhibited between Friday 30 April and Sunday 30 May 2021 and adopted with an amendment at the Council Meeting held Tuesday 15 June 2021.
The amendment relates to cafés and restaurants with outdoor dining on Council land. Those that are facing ongoing financial hardship due to COVID-19 can apply for a proportionate reduction in outdoor dining fees through deferral and/or waiver until 31 December 21

During the exhibition period held between Friday 30 April and Sunday 30 May, 526 submissions were received.
A broad range of issues were
raised through the submission process. This included concerns in relation to
the increase in rates, the domestic waste management services charge, permit
fees for Church Point Parking facility as well as the introduction of boat
tie-up fees at Bell and Carol’s wharves on Scotland Island.
Infrastructure requests for footpath construction on Barrenjoey Road was also strongly supported by those who provided a submission.
A small amount of submissions raised concern in relation to proposed fees in the areas of Long Day Care, parking, community and aquatic centre fees.

The draft Delivery Program sets out the work that Council proposes to undertake over the next four years as part of the delivery of the community outcomes and goals of the Community Strategic Plan. The first year of the Delivery Program is the Operational Plan.
The Delivery Program is updated annually and includes:
Also included in the delivery program are financial forecasts for the future three years.
The Budget is Council’s planned spending for the financial year. It includes expected income and expenditure for all planned services and infrastructure, as well as ongoing maintenance and depreciation commitments.
The draft Fees and Charges document details what Council proposes to charge for services in 2021/22. This includes regulatory services such as development applications as well as access to other services and facilities such as domestic waste service, hire of halls, entry to the aquatic centres and childcare. Fees and charges are set annually in accordance with Council's Pricing Policy.
Fees generally rise by a modest percentage each year.
We prepare these as part of our integrated planning and reporting obligations under the Local Government Act, 1993 (as amended).
The integrated planning and reporting framework requires every NSW Council to undertake long term planning with their community on services and facilities, informed by plans for finances, assets and the workforce.
The Delivery Program and Operational Plan and Budget (including the Fees and Charges) are part of this framework.
In 2017 and 2018 Council engaged with the community to develop the Delivery Program 2018-21 which determined the projects that we would priorities over the coming four years.
The total income that can be raised from levying rates on property is capped by the state government based on a determination by the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART). IPART determined that general income from rates in 2021/22 may be increased by a maximum of 2 percent.
The increase allowed by IPART relates to general income in total and not to an individual ratepayers’ rates.
Rates for individual ratepayers may vary by more or less than the percentage allowable as the new rating structure is implemented with new minimum and ad valorem rates applying.
