Lismore City Council has placed on public exhibition its draft Imagine Lismore Community Strategic Plan and the combined Imagine Lismore Delivery Program and Operational Plan (2017/18 budget) for 28 days.

The Imagine Lismore Community Strategic Plan is a 10-year plan that details the community’s aspirations for the future and Council’s strategies to achieve these goals. The combined Imagine Lismore Delivery Program and Operational Plan then details Council’s next four-year program of projects, activities and events to deliver on these strategies as well as the 2017/18 budget.

In relation to the 2017/18 budget, Council’s net operating result for the year is a $15.230 million surplus. Excluding capital revenues (grants and developer contributions) the result is a $7.666 million surplus.

The 2017/18 budget is $159.034 million, which includes $33.6 million for roads and associated infrastructure, or 21% of the budget.

A total of $55.404 million in capital works is included in the 2017/18 financial year. This includes:

  • $20.0 million upgrade of wastewater infrastructure;
  • $10.8 million on new capital roadworks;
  • $4.5 million in water infrastructure;
  • $2.5 million for waste disposal – Container Deposit Scheme; and
  • $2.3 million for waste disposal – Commercial Waste Sorting.

There is also $721,200 for footpaths in the CBD and renewals, $735,000 for improvements at Lismore Regional Airport and $633,000 for CCTV cameras in Lismore’s CBD.

In relation to the typical residential bill, water will increase to $864 (an increase of $36 or 4.3%), wastewater to $886 (an increase of $31 or 3.6%) and integrated waste to $297.70 (an increase of $4.40 or 1.50%).

The general rate (after applying the full rate pegging increase of 1.5%) will increase the average urban residential rate by $18 to $1,169. This means the average urban residential rate bill would rise to $3292.

Submissions on the Imagine Lismore Community Strategic Plan and the combined Imagine Lismore Delivery Program and Operational Plan must be received by 4pm on 7 June 2017.

Submissions can be made online below, email council@lismore.nsw.gov.au or mail to the General Manager, Lismore City Council, PO Box 23A, Lismore NSW 2480.
