Strategic plans guiding the future of our community
In June 2017, Council adopted a new set of strategic plans to guide its strategic direction and long-term and short-term planning. All NSW councils develop these strategic documents using a model called the Integrated Planning & Reporting Framework.
The diagram below shows how the plans connect: long-term objectives identified by the community are translated in to strategies, activities and actions that the Council will undertake. These plans are updated each time a new Council is elected.
COMMUNITY STRATEGIC PLAN
The Imagine Lismore Community Strategic Plan 2017-2027 details the community’s 10-year aspirations for Lismore and sets the scene for what the community wishes for its future.
DELIVERY PROGRAM & OPERATIONAL PLAN
The four-year Delivery Program is Council’s strategic plan for achieving the community’s vision while the Operational Plan is a sub-set of the Delivery Program that includes specific activities that will be undertaken during the 2019/20 financial year as well as the accompanying budget.
Council produces regular Progress Reports to update the community on progress in achieving the strategies outlined in the Delivery Program.
