Mount Barker District Council Draft Annual Business Plan 2017/18

Mount Barker District Council’s Annual Business Plan and budget has been formulated as a draft to enable public comment from members of the community prior to its adoption in July 2017.

The annual business plan sets out the Council’s proposed services, programs and projects for 2017/18. It aims to maintain efficient service for the community and continued progress towards the longer term objectives of the District set out in the Mount Barker 2035 District Strategic Plan adopted by Council on 21 December 2015. Specific objectives for the year proposed are consistent with Council’s draft long term financial plan and asset management plans to ensure the long term sustainability of Council’s financial performance and position.

Wastewater Commitment Separate Rates

Council previously introduced a Wastewater Commitment separate rate as the primary security mechanism which a developer could utilise when they have entered into a Wastewater Commitment Deed for the provision of a Council sewer service.

Council is now proposing to declare Wastewater Commitment separate rates on some additional land parcels within the growth areas where requested by a developer.

 

Mount Barker District Council Draft Long Term Financial Plan 2017/27

Mount Barker District Council’s Draft Long Term Financial Plan 2017-2027 is one of a suite of strategic documents required by legislation, and created to enable Council to plan and deliver on community aspirations, to manage growth and service and infrastructure levels and standards, without unplanned and disruptive increases in rates or cuts to services.

Council’s future plans take into account population growth doubling as a result of the 30 Year Plan for Greater Adelaide which was implemented in 2010 by the State Government, and resulted in Council producing a very different set of plans for its future.

Council has been innovative in its approach to planning for the future and the delivery of critical new roads, open space and community facilities, by working with developers, schools and the government, to minimise the impact on ratepayers while recognising rates remain Council’s major source of income and a major factor in the long term financial plan.
