Submissions close Sunday 14 January 2018

Background

Council is the custodian of a large number of physical assets that the community use every day in a number of ways. These assets include facilities such as:
  • roads
  • bridges
  • footpaths and recreational trails
  • car parks
  • furniture
  • stormwater network
  • parks and reserves
  • sportsgrounds
  • playgrounds
  • ocean pools
  • aquatic centres
  • buildings, and
  • public amenities.
The management of these assets is guided by an Asset Management Policy, which, until now, has been done under three separate policies for the former Councils.

In developing an integrated draft Asset Management Policy, the former policies have been reviewed, streamlined and consolidated into a single policy for Northern Beaches Council.

The draft Policy provides guidelines for Council to consistently manage our assets throughout the Northern Beaches to meet the community’s needs and expectations in a sustainable manner.

At its meeting on Tuesday 28 November 2017, the draft Policy was presented to Council for endorsement. The Council resolved to:

A. Place the draft Asset Management Policy on public exhibition for a period of 28 days
inviting submissions.

B. Report back following close of public exhibition period.

Following the exhibition period, the final Policy will be presented to Council for adoption with a recommendation to revoke the former Council’s policies.
