Integrated Planning and Reporting

In essence the Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework (IP&R) begins with the community’s aspirations for a period of at least 10 years – The Community Strategic Plan (CSP). 

All other plans developed by council as part of the IP&R suite must reflect and support the implementation of the Community Strategic Plan.

The Framework includes a suite of integrated plans that set out a vision and goals and strategic actions to achieve them. It involves a reporting structure to communicate progress to council and the community as well as a structured timeline for review to ensure the goals and actions are still relevant.

At the end of each Council term a report is prepared for the community to examine what progress was made towards the achievement of outcomes identified in the Community Strategic Plan.


The Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) suite of documents includes Council's Community Strategic Plan; Long-Term Financial Plan; Resourcing Strategy (Asset Management Plan & Workforce Management Plan); Delivery Program; and a yearly Operational Plan and Operational Budget.

Community Strategic Plan

Snowy Valleys 2028 is our community’s long term plan for capturing the priorities and ideas of our people to create a better future for our region.  It guides Council’s decisions and actions, and informs our ongoing reviews of services and our other numerous strategies.

The plan was formed by the contributions and conversations of more than one thousand community members of the Snowy Valleys, whether through survey, submission or one of many engagement activities that took place across towns, villages and communities.

Delivery Program

The Delivery Program is the primary public planning document for Council’s proposed activities and the performance measures for the next four years. The Delivery Program incorporates the yearly Operational Plan which identifies the principle activities for Council from 1 July to 30 June each year.
