What is the Delivery Program and Operational Plan?

The Council plans for service provision into the future, reviewing what services it provides and how much money is available to deliver those services. 

The Operational Plan provides details about what the Council will be delivering in the following financial year and how much it will be spending on providing these services.  It is part of the four-year Delivery Program that sets out four-year priorities and commitments that the Council is responding to.
