Planning and reporting to the community
The Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) framework guides the way councils in NSW document their plans for the future and report on their progress.
The plans in the IP&R Framework define our vision, and the goals and strategic actions to achieve them.
It also involves a reporting structure to communicate our progress to Council and the community, as well as a structured timeline for reviews to ensure the goals and actions are still relevant.
Planning for the future of the Tweed
10 year plan and outlook - Community Strategic Plan
The Community Strategic Plan 2017-2027(PDF, 4MB) (the Plan) is the overarching, visionary document in Council’s Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework. It translates the community’s key priorities and aspirations into long-term strategic goals that guide the future direction of the Tweed.
Environmental protection and stronger communities were leading concerns identified during community engagement to create the plan.
5 year strategies and actions - Delivery Program
The Delivery Program 2017–2022 and Operational Plan 2021-2022(PDF, 5MB) details Council’s role in the delivery of projects and services during the 5-year term of the elected council, to realise long-term strategic goals.
They detail the delivery of planned projects and services for each year, aligning each action to a budget and outlining any other resourcing issues. Each activity is also assigned to a Council officer who is responsible for its delivery.
