Wyong Shire Council Strategic Plan 2014-2018

Wyong Shire Council Strategic Plan 2014-2018

Wyong Shire Council adopted its Strategic Plan (including the Annual Operational Plan and Budget for 2014/15 as well as strategies for financial planning, asset, workforce and information management and its Revenue Policy) on 28 May 2014.

The Plan focuses on delivery of services against community aspirations as detailed in the Community Strategic Plan.

The Wyong Shire Council Strategic Plan 2014-2018 includes a record-breaking capital works program for 2014/15 of just over $100 million.

The extensive works program has been made possible only after several years of organisational reform and demonstrates a major investment in the Shire’s road and transport network, as well as in leisure and recreation assets highlighted by the construction of The Art House and Norah Head Boat Ramp.

Investment in essential infrastructure is a key priority, with $70 million to be spent on roads, footpaths and drainage, with $10.1 million is being spent on addressing our asset backlog due to the community’s support to increase revenue via a four-year Special Rate Variation.

Playgrounds, water and sewerage infrastructure, footpaths, and fire trails will also get their fair share of attention in addition to high profile projects like the new cinemas at Lake Haven, reconstruction of historic Alison Homestead, the design of a regional sporting facility at Pioneer Dairy and a Masterplan for Ourimbah Town Centre.
