Asset Management Plans 

Mount Barker District Council has prepared a number of Infrastructure Asset Management Plans (AMPs) to meet the statutory requirement under the Local Government Act 1999. 

In 2018 the AMPs were updated and a consolidated Strategic Asset Management Plan has been prepared which was endorsed by Council at the meeting held on 6 August 2018.

Asset Management Plans are critical for describing the services Council provides to the community from its infrastructure assets and how much it costs to provide these services. It also describes future demand requirements, lifecycle costs and risks and funding strategies for providing services. Importantly the plans also identify any actions that can be taken to improve asset management practices.
