Integrated Planning and Reporting

A planning and reporting framework was introduced in 2009 across all NSW local government areas, to improve local Council's long term community planning and asset management as well as streamline the reporting process to the community.

The IP&R framework aims to improve the sustainability of local communities by encouraging councils, residents and state agencies to work together to achieve the objectives set out within these long term plans.

Integration of the Community Strategic Plan, Delivery Program and Operational Plan, along with Council's Resourcing Strategies (Long Term Financial Plan, Workforce Plan & Asset Management Plan) is key to meaningful planning. Sound planning helps us provide ratepayers with the best level of service we can.

Our Council faces a number of challenges over the next 20 years as the implementation of the community strategic plan gathers pace. By strengthening collaboration between community, business and government, we can overcome these challenges as we work together to achieve the Vision and Key Directions.

These are our plans - developed by the people of the Snowy Monaro Regional Council - for the people of the Snowy Monaro Region. We are fortunate to call this place home. How we care for it and plan for its future, is our most important undertaking.


Snowy Monaro 2042 Community Strategic Plan

The Snowy Monaro 2042 provides an important strategic roadmap for our community during this exciting and challenging period of transition for the region.  This Plan will help guide and direct our community’s priorities and decision making, 
working across all levels as well as service planning and delivery choices, to deliver the best outcomes for our communities.

The following documents were adopted by Council on 16 June 2022:


Delivery Program and Operational Plan

These documents set out the priorities, direction and expected levels of service that our community expressed during the development of our Community Strategic Plans. The Delivery Program 2022-26 presents a single point of reference outlining Council's actions for the next three years. 

Before the beginning of each consecutive year of a Delivery Program, Council is required to develop an annual Operational Plan.   

Council will now deliver our 2023-2024 Operational Plan . This should be read in conjunction with the Snowy Monaro 2042 Community Strategic Plan, and the 2022-26 Delivery Program, revised 2023.

The 2023-2024 Operational Plan incorporates Council’s 2023-2024 Capital Works ProgramAnnual Budget, Statement of Revenue Policy and Schedule of Fees and Charges.

The 2023-2024 Operational Plan, 2023-2024 Statement of Revenue Policy and 2023-2024 Schedule of Fees and Charges, were adopted by Council on 29 June 2023.

Resourcing Strategies

Snowy Monaro Regional Council's Resourcing Strategy(PDF, 17MB) has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the State Government's Integrated Planning Framework and gives consideration to the capacity for Council to deliver on its responsibilities within our Community Strategic Plan.

Both the Community Strategic Plan and the Resourcing Strategy inform and are informed by the four year Delivery Program, which has also been developed to meet the requirements of the Integrated Planning Framework.

The Resourcing Strategy incorporates the Workforce Management Plan, Asset Management Strategy and The Long Term Financial Plan.

The Workforce Management Plan(PDF, 2MB)  is focused on retaining staff, developing leaders, skilling managers and positioning Council as an employer of Choice.

The Asset Management Strategy(PDF, 2MB) is a reflection of Council's intention that our community's infrastructure network is maintained in partnership with other levels of government and stakeholders to meet the need of the local residents. 

 The (PDF, 2MB)Long Term-Financial Plan 2022-2032, 2023 revised(PDF, 5MB), focuses on Council's long term goal of financial sustainability and delivering quality services to the community.


Annual and Financial Council Reports

In 2009, the NSW Government introduced a new framework guiding local government in a new approach to planning for and reporting on their activities. This new framework is known as Integrated Planning & Reporting (IPR) and all councils were required to adopt the new framework by 30 June 2012. The IPR framework is a holistic approach to identify and link the aspirations of the community with long term planning to ensure the sustainability or our actions, both for current and future generations.


Financial Sustainability Report 2022

The independent Financial Sustainability independent review was undertaken by AEC  in 2022 – maps a pathway for Council to reach financial sustainability, through a series of recommendations.
