Planning and Resourcing Our Future

The NSW Government adopted an Integrated Planning & Reporting Framework for local councils, requiring each council to develop a Community Strategic Plan, Delivery Program, Operational Plan and a Resourcing Strategy.

In response to the legislation, Leichhardt Council adopted an Integrated Planning & Reporting framework. The framework has a tiered structure designed to cascade down, from Community Strategic Plan 2025+, Strategic Service Plans, Delivery Program and Operational Plan and to the Annual Report.

The indicative relationship between Leichhardt 2025+, the Integrated Planning & Reporting Framework and other Leichhardt Council plans and strategies is provided below:
