Resourcing Strategy

Resourcing Strategy

This public exhibition has now concluded.

Central Coast Council invited the community to provide their feedback on the draft Resourcing Strategy between 20 December 2021 and 21 January 2022. 

The Resourcing Strategy encompasses the Long-Term Financial Plan (2022-2032), Revised Asset Management Strategy (2018-2028) and the Workforce Management Strategy (2022-2026) and aims to ensure that the resources are allocated to achieve the objectives of the revised draft Community Strategic Plan which was also on exhibition. 

Long-Term Financial Plan

The Long-Term Financial Plan is a key component of Council’s long term resourcing strategy. The plan details financial projections based on key assumptions. Scenarios are included which test against the financial reality. 

Revised Asset Management Strategy

The Asset Management Strategy details how Council’s asset portfolio will meet the service delivery needs of the community. 

Workforce Management Strategy

The Workforce Management Strategy aims to lead and support Council in building capability through its people. This supports the objectives set and ensures Council provides valuable services which strengthen and support the Central Coast community. 

The community is invited to view the draft Resourcing Strategy available in the document library on this page.

Submissions were to be addressed to the Chief Executive Officer, Mr David Farmer between 20 December 2021 and 21 January 2022.

Outcomes of exhibition

Thank you to those who provided submissions and feedback on the draft Resourcing Strategy. All feedback has been thoroughly reviewed and recommendations were made in a Council Report.  

At the meeting of Council on 3 February 2022, Council noted the submissions received during the public exhibition period and resolved to adopt the Resourcing Strategy.

As also noted, Council will undertake another exhibition in May 2022. As Council has had to unavoidably exhibit these IP&R documents over the December 2021 and January 2022 holiday period. These documents do not come into effect until 1 July 2022 and given their importance, this will allow for further amendments, based on community need and new information coming to light, to be considered.

Will Council proceed with its application to IPART

Yes. At the meeting of Council on 3 February 2022, Council resolved to proceed with its application to IPART to secure the current rate income for a further 7 years.

What is a Resourcing Strategy? 

Resourcing strategies are developed to ensure that adequate resources are allocated to achieve the objectives set out in the Community Strategic Plan (CSP) and meet the Delivery Program 2022-2025 including: 

  • Finances – Long-Term Financial Plan
  • Human Resources – Workforce Management Plan 
  • Assets – Asset Management Planning 

How does the Resourcing Strategy align with the other strategic documents such as the Community Strategic Plan (CSP) and the Delivery Program (Operational Plan)? 

The Resourcing Strategy supports the Delivery Program and identifies how Council will deliver those actions, projects, programs and activities through its finances, people and assets.

How can I have my say on the Resourcing Strategy? 

The community were invited to have their say on the initial review of the Resourcing Strategy between 20 December 2021 and 21 January 2022. This could be done by: 

An additional public exhibition period for the Resourcing Strategy will be provided in May 2022.
