A summary of changes from the draft plan to the final 2022-2023 Annual Business Plan can be found at the beginning of the plan, however key changes include Council decisions to:

  • Reduce the rate increase to 2.7% (excluding increases due to growth). The draft proposed rate increase was 3.0% (excluding increases due to growth). The capital project named ‘Sport Field Floodlighting – To Be Determined TBA’ with a budget of $374k was removed from the capital works program in response to the rate increase change (14 June Council meeting)
  • Carry forward $3.5m of income and $11.8 of expenditure into the 2022-2023 Annual Business Plan as projects carried forward from the 2021-2022 year (24 May Council meeting)

Background

The draft Annual Business Plan and Budget sets out our proposed projects, services and programs for the financial year and how we intend to fund them.

As part of the planning process, we invite the community to provide feedback on the draft plan for 2022-2023.

To fund this year's Annual Business Plan and Budget we have proposed a 3.0% rate increase, excluding any increases due to growth. This will provide $88.5 million in operating income.

In the next financial year we plan to deliver more than $36 million in community infrastructure in a bid to boost the local economy, improve health and wellbeing outcomes and increase safety and accessibility across our City. This includes a $12 million community building and sporting clubroom at Harpers Field (Golden Grove) and upgrades for Modbury Sporting Complex (Ridgehaven) and Tilley Recreation Park (Surrey Downs). Funding will be offset through State Government partnerships.

Investment in roads, footpaths and open spaces such as playgrounds continues this year, with about $6.8 million to be spent on improvements.

More information is available in the summary document and the draft Annual Business Plan 2022-2023, which include a list of proposed capital works.


To get involved and have your say:

Email and written submissions can also be provided - see the summary document for more details.

Note that as public meetings are still suspended due to COVID-19, a public meeting for the draft Annual Business Plan will not be held this year.

Copies of the draft plan, summary document, and hard copy feedback form are also available at the Council's Civic Centre, 571 Montague Road, Modbury.

Your feedback is appreciate by Friday, 27 May 2022. Following the consultation process, Council will determine whether the direction and focus of this plan is appropriate, and to what extent the proposed initiatives and standards of service will be funded.
