Planning and reporting to the community
Planning for future Reporting on delivery
Council plans for a sustainable future whilst keeping the community informed along the way.
We follow the Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) framework, which 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 the vision for councils, and the goals and strategic actions to achieve them.
Planning for the future of the Tweed
To ensure that we plan for our long term future, a 10 year plan called the Community Strategic Plan (CSP) is developed to identify the community’s vision for the future of the Tweed, including long-term goals, strategies to get there and how to measure our progress towards that vision.
10 year plan and outlook - Community Strategic Plan
The Community Strategic Plan 2017-2027(PDF, 4MB) (CSP) sets out the community’s vision and Council’s commitment, it sits above the other strategies, policies and procedures that underpin our work.
The CSP was developed after many months of consultation with the local community to support Council to design plans that are in line with the community expectations. Leading concerns identified were environmental protection and stronger communities.

Resourcing Strategy and Workforce Management Plan
The Resourcing Strategy forecasts Council’s ability to deliver assets and services to the community over the next 10 years, in line with the adopted Community Strategic Plan.
Asset management – current and future condition
Council manages a broad range of assets valued in excess of $2.8 billion.
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.
It includes 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.
Reporting on the delivery of the Plan

To view the Annual Report, End of Term Report and other financial statements, head to annual and financial reports.
