Delivery Program / Operational Plan

In accordance with statutory Integrated Planning and Reporting requirements, Council has a fixed-term Delivery Program, a ‘statement of commitment’ to the community from each newly elected council.


Delivery Program 2018/19-2021/22

This plan outlines what Council intends to do from 2018/19 to 2021/22 towards achieving the desired outcomes of the North Sydney Community Strategic Plan 2018-2028. The plan includes financial estimates in accordance with Scenario 3 of the Long Term Financial Plan, a component of Council's Resourcing Strategy 2018-2028.

The relationship between the Delivery Program/Operational Plan and the North Sydney Community Strategic Plan is shown below.



Preparation of the Delivery Program

The draft Delivery Program 2018/19-2021/22 (incl. Operational Plan 2018/19) was publicly exhibited May-June 2018, and initially adopted on 25 June 2018.

Amendments to the plan were publicly exhibited November 2018 - January 2019 in conjunction with Council’s special rate variation (SRV) and minimum rate increase application. The amended plan was adopted by Council on 29 January 2019.

On 13 May 2019, IPART approved a 7% increase pa. for the period 2019/20 to 2021/22, inclusive of the annual rate peg; Years 2 and 3 of the Delivery Program include a special rate variation and minimum rate increase. Refer to our rates page.

Delivery Program 2018/19-2021/22 (8MB)

Due to COVID-19 and the deferral of the next local government election, a fourth year has been added to the Delivery Program. 

The Delivery Program is presented by ‘strategic view’ - by the five Strategic Directions per the Community Strategic Plan.


Operational Plan 2020/21

This plan was adopted on 27 July 2020. It outlines the individual activities (projects and services) that will be undertaken in Year 3 of the Delivery Program. It also includes Council's annual Revenue Policy which should be read in conjunction with Council’s annual Fees and Charges Schedule.

 Operational Plan 2021/22 (7MB)

The Operational Plan is presented by ‘divisional view’ - all projects and services per financial year are collated by Department and grouped by organisational Division.
