All feedback received will be shared with Council prior to the Budget Submission Hearing on Wednesday 7 June and the endorsement of the below documents at the Monday 26 June Council meeting. 


Each year Council develops a new Budget and Annual Plan and reviews its Council Plan and Long Term Financial Plan to ensure we are continuing to meet the needs of our community.

These documents outline what activities we will undertake and how we will fund the following services:

  • Children, youth and families - childcare, maternal and child health, immunisation, youth services
  • Health and wellbeing - disability services, home and community care, food safety
  • Your home - rubbish and recycling, planning and building permits, pet registrations
  • Sport and leisure - sportsgrounds, leisure centres, parks and gardens, festivals and events
  • Roads and safety - roads and footpaths, car parks, street lighting
  • Community - libraries, theatre and the arts, community centres
