The Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework (IPR) is a nationally consistent approach to local government planning for service delivery. The main focus of IPR is to establish local priorities and link this information to operational functions.

Council’s minimum obligations relating to planning for the future (IPR) are listed in S5.56 (1) of the Local Government Act 1995.

Plan for the Future (SCP/CBP)

The Plan for the Future is the integrated approach to combining the Strategic Community Plan and Corporate Business Plan into one document and is our principal strategy and planning document that links community aspirations with the Council's vision and long-term strategy.

The Strategic Community Plan (SCP) forms the basis of the IPR Framework and provides the foundation to develop other strategic documents, including the Corporate Business Plan, Workforce Plan, Asset Management Plan and Long-Term Financial Plan.

In accordance with statutory requirements, the SCP is reviewed and updated on a 4-year review cycle including community consultation, with a desktop review being undertaken every 2 years.

The Corporate Business Plan (CBP) identifies projects, initiatives and actions that the Shire will undertake over a four-year period to improve operations whilst delivering key services and facilities that support the community vision.

In accordance with statutory requirements, the CBP component of this Plan for the Future is reviewed and updated annually to assess the progress of projects and realign the Plan’s actions and priorities based on current information and available funding. 

Long Term Financial Plan

The Shire’s LTFP comprises long term financial forecasting over a fifteen-year period. This consists of projecting revenue (money coming in) and expenditure (money going out) over the fifteen years. The LTFP does this by using assumptions about the economy, future spending, funding sources and other variables. The LTFP then aligns the Shire’s financial capacity with the strategic priorities of the community to ensure the Local Government remains financially sustainable while planning for new or improved services.

The Long Term Financial Plan will be reviewed annually to ensure it remains contemporary and reflects any relevant changes that have occurred during the preceding twelve months.

Asset Management Plan

The Shire’s Strategic Asset Management Plan is a twenty-year plan that identifies, records and values Shire-owned assets. The Plan also identifies the point at which assets need to be replaced or renewed, and the associated cost, to ensure that services can be delivered for future generations.

The current Asset Management Plan was adopted in November 2018 and contained Fair Value valuations as at 30 June 2018 for Road Infrastructure. The Shire is developing (due to be completed in late 2021) a revised asset management plan for major asset classes in accordance with Council’s Asset Management Policy.

Workforce Plan

The Workforce Plan is the Shire’s four-year ‘people plan’ that ensures the organisation has the right people, in the right positions, at the right time for the right cost. It seeks to provide the best opportunity for achieving the Shire’s Strategic Community Plan aspirations and Corporate Business Plan projects.

Waste Management Plan

The Waste management Plan is an 'informing document' to the Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework. The WMP will assist the Shire to lobby for resources to implement the plan and to guide the direction and delivery of sustainable waste management services in the Ngaanyatjarra Lands into the future.
