Integrated Planning & Reporting (IP & R)
All local councils in NSW are required to plan and report in line with the Government's Integrated Planning & Reporting Framework (IP&R). The IP&R Framework includes a suite of integrated plans that set out a vision and goals, strategic actions and resources required to implement the key directions identified by the Bathurst community in our Bathurst 2040 Community Strategic Plan (CSP). To view the Bathurst 2040 Community Strategic Plan click here.
All other plans developed by council as part of the IP&R suite must reflect and support the implementation of the Community Strategic Plan.
The Delivery Program and Annual Operational Plan outlines the strategies and financial resources required over the next four years to implement the key directions identified by the community in our Bathurst 2040 Community Strategic Plan. The Delivery Program incorporates the yearly Operational Plan which identifies the principal activities for Council from 1 July to 30 June each year.
The Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP) is a financial projection that quantifies the cost of Council’s services, investments and capital programs for the next ten years, and how Council intends to fund those, given certain assumptions and estimates. It is the mechanism where Council can test the assumptions and objectives against financial realities to achieve the value statements included in the CSP process.
Council, on 29 June 2022, adopted the current Bathurst 2022-2023 IP&R documents, including the Delivery Program 2022-2026 and Annual Operational Plan 2022/2023 (incorporating the Revenue Policy 2022/2023) and the Long Term Financial Plan 2022-2032.
