Community Plan Proposals open

Published on 29 November 2021


Council has commenced its budget planning for the next financial year and is encouraging residents to submit proposals as part of the process.

Residents can put forward Community Plan Proposals for new infrastructure, projects, activities and improvements throughout the region to be considered in the 2022/23 Operational Plan.

The Operational Plan sets out the projects and activities which Council is committed to over the coming financial year, as well as measures and time frames to achieve this.

The plan includes Council’s Revenue Policy (Rating Model), 2022/23 proposed Fees and Charges, Capital Works program, Annual Budget and Delivery Program.

Council’s General Manager, Brad Cam said this is the community’s chance to let Council know what projects and activities they’d like to see.

“If you’d like to see investments in public facilities, improvements to neighbourhood footpaths or more public toilets – now is your chance to have your say,” Mr Cam said.

Successful community proposals that have recently been completed include new shade sails at Gulgong Pool and improvements to the Lawson Park East footpath. A number of projects are currently underway including road guttering in Kandos and toilets at Putta Bucca Wetlands.

Community Plan Proposals close 10 January, 2022.
