Local Governments in NSW are required to undertake their planning and reporting activities in accordance with the Local Government Act 1993 and the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005. In 2009 the Local Government Act was amended to create an Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) requirement. As at 30 June 2012 NSW Councils are required to be working within the IP&R Framework.
A greater emphasis is placed on longer term
planning, this includes the preparation of a 10-year Community Strategic Plan,
a four-year Delivery Program and a 1-year Operational Plan.
One of the requirements under this Framework is the production of an End of Term Report every four years presented to the outgoing Council. This Report outlines Council’s progress in implementing our Upper Hunter Shire Council Community Strategic Plan.
End of Term Report 2012-2016
The achievements included in the End of Term Report 2012-2016 directly relate to Council's progress in implementing the Community Strategic Plan 2013+ over the four years.
The End of Term Report 2012-2016 is framed around Upper Hunter Shires 4 Key Focus Areas, 8 Goals and 28 Community Strategic Objectives. Each Goal is outlined in its own report card, including highlights of achievements and progress Council has made through its Delivery Program and Operational Plans between 2012 and 2016 against each of the 28 Community Strategic Objectives (CSOs).
Although the End of Term Report is a requirement, this Report has been produced in a new format with the aim of also making it a practical and easy to read resource for the Community.
