PLANS FOR THE FUTURE

Submissions to Council's Future Planning documents are now closed. A report will go to Council's Extra Ordinary meeting on June 27, 2017.

Councillors and staff at Kempsey Shire Council have spent considerable time reviewing community feedback, participating in workshops and debating priorities.

We have now compiled our draft forward planning documents for the coming financial year and more broadly this term of Council.

Council need your feedback on these draft documents. We want to hear your thoughts on the projects we are proposing, on the targets and indicators of success that we’ve identified and on the funding model developed.

Improvements to the beach reserves and caravan parks as well as increased sporting facilities and investigations into an alternative bridge are just some of the major projects Council is considering.

Council believes that seeking investment from the community in this program will deliver economic growth, attract residents and visitors to the area and make it possible to create new housing and business opportunities.

What are your thoughts?

Submissions must be made in writing either using the submissions tab online or addressed to the General Manager. Submission close on 22 June.

    The four year Delivery Program combines a period of consolidation while continuing to maintain our biggest asset, our roads. In the later half of the program attention turns to renewing and refurbishing other assets and particularly our passive and active community spaces.

    Funding the Delivery Program over the next four years won’t be achieved on the current levels of income. Like all organisations council is faced with increasing costs of maintaining our assets and providing services to the community, revenue generated is not keeping pace with the costs of providing these services.
