Council has prepared a number of draft Asset Management Plans (AMP) to meet the statutory requirement under the Local Government Act 1999. The AMPs have recently been updated and a consolidated Strategic Asset Management Plan has been prepared.

Read the Draft Strategic Asset Management Plan

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.

What is an Asset Management Plan and why do we do it?

  • Council provides a wide range of services. To deliver these services we own and manage many assets. These assets are categorised in five classes: buildings, stormwater, transport, recreational and open space, and wastewater.
  • Our asset management plans define the lifecycle costs of our assets, analyse risks associated with assets and their management, and establish funding strategies for providing agreed services and assets. Importantly, the plans identify any actions that can be taken to improve how we manage assets.
  • These asset management plans outline how we ensure assets (like roads, footpaths, bridges and buildings) are most cost effectively maintained and renewed for the long term.
  • Asset Management Plans guide the financial sustainability of the Council so we appreciate the financial ramifications of buying new assets like new trails and footpaths or sports hubs and swimming pools.
