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.
