We're crunching the numbers for next year's budget

Preparing the Annual Budget is an essential part of the Council's work as we deliver more than 57 services to the community and maintain over $1 billion of assets.

Delivering quality services our community wants on a finite income is not easy especially given the impact of post-pandemic cost of living challenges we, and our community, are facing.

That's why we recently asked our community to help inform the development of the Proposed Budget to shape how and where money should be spent next year, ensuring your needs are better reflected in the final document.

This included ranking the variety of services Council delivers in order of their importance to you by allocating the 100 points provided across five areas. There was also an option to provide more detailed feedback.

Engagement has now closed. We are now considering feedback and will come back to you in the new year.
