Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework and Guidelines

It addresses the minimum requirements to meet the intent of the Local Government Act and outlines how a local government can produce an integrated plan.

These guidelines are not intended to restrict the planning processes; they simply provide good practice processes that will assist local governments in implementing the Integrated Planning Framework while meeting the outcomes prescribed in the legislation.

The Framework:

  • Recognises that planning for a local government is holistic in nature and driven by the community.
  • Builds organisational and resource capability to meet community need.
  • Optimises success by understanding the integration and interdependencies between the components; and
  • Emphasises performance monitoring so that local governments can adapt and respond to changes in community needs and the business environment.

A successful integrated planning process will deliver the following outcomes:

  • A Strategic Community Plan that clearly links the community’s aspirations with the Council’s vision and long term strategy
  • A Corporate Business Plan that integrates resourcing plans and specific council plans with the Strategic Community Plan, and
  • A clearly stated vision for the future viability of the local government area.
