Read the 2020/21 annual budget.

A bit about our draft annual budget

Each year, we develop an annual budget which outlines how we will deliver everyday, high quality services and programs to our community.

This covers everything from rubbish and recycling collection, roads, parks and infrastructure upgrades, libraries and leisure centres, services for people at all stages of life and much more.

We'll be making sure that our 2020/21 budget is financially responsible and continues to build on the solid foundation of previous years' budgets.

We asked you to share your ideas and priorities between Monday 4 November and Tuesday 31 December 2019.

Your feedback will help to inform our draft budget. The draft budget will be developed in early 2020, and released for further community feedback in April 2020. At this time you will be invited to make a formal submission to the draft budget.

Our budget goals

In developing the budget, we’re guided by the goals outlined in our 2017-2021 Council Plan. These goals are:

Community health, safety and wellbeing are a focus in everything we do.

Inclusion, diversity and uniqueness are welcomed, respected and celebrated.

We are leaders in sustainability and we protect and enhance our natural environment.

Development and growth are managed to maintain and enhance the character and heritage of the city.

Local businesses prosper and creative and knowledge industries thrive.

Connectivity and travel options are environmentally sustainable, integrated and well-designed.

Transparency, performance and community participation drive the way we operate.
