Junee Shire Council’s Integrated Planning and Reporting framework comprises the following key elements:

Community Strategic Plan ‘Making Tracks’ – identifies the community’s main priorities and aspirations for the future and outlines strategies for achieving these goals. It has a long-term outlook of 10 to 20 years. Each newly elected Council must complete a review of its Plan by 30 June in the year following the local government elections and roll the planning forward by at least four years, that way it is always a minimum 10 year plan. Junee Shire Council’s current Community Strategic Plan was adopted on 16 May 2017.

Combined Delivery Program and Operational Plan – describes the activities and actions the Council will undertake over the next four years to achieve its long term goals and outcomes. It is accompanied by Financial Estimates to support the delivery of those services and projects. A Delivery Program must be prepared by 30 June in the year following a local government election. The Operational Plan lists the actions to be completed over the ensuing 12 month period. It is reviewed and adopted by 30 June each year. Financial information for the four year rolling cycle 2019/2023 is contained in the Junee Shire Council Financial Estimates contained in Part 2 of this document.

Progress Reports
