    The Annual Business Plan and Budget is a balancing act for Council with the delivery of services and projects for the community and the raising of rates to pay for them.  

    Average rates increases have declined over the past four years. With the economic environment this year, Council is cutting its income in real terms by even more. 

    The proposed budget proposes a Rates increase of 1.05% compared to a published CPI  of 2.1%.

    We encourage the community to read the Draft 2020/21 Annual Business Plan and Budget document and provide your feedback via the below online forum.

    • Have we got the balancing act right? 
    • In reviewing the list of proposed projects and services within the plan, are there any items Council needs to consider to add, reduce or delete?
    • What enhancements would you like to see within the plan?
    • Do you have any other comments or questions?

    We seek your feedback.
