Draft Business Plan 2020/21-2022/23

Port Pirie Regional Council is pleased to present our draft 2020/21-2022/23 Business Plan & Budget for public consultation. The public consultation period begins Monday 12 October 2020 and continues until 5.00pm Wednesday 11 November 2020.

View the 2020/21 -2022/23 Draft Business Plan Public Notice here

Council has delayed this year’s Business Plan and Budget following an offer from the South Australian Government to allow councils time to better understand the financial impacts of COVID-19 on our communities. This will result in a later adoption of the Business Plan and therefore, later issuing of rates.

The first instalment rates notice for 2020/21 is scheduled for December 2020 (following the adoption of the Business Plan) and the remaining three instalments will be spread evenly between this date and June 2021. Council encourages residents to consider making payments on their rates in advance to ease financial pressure before Christmas and into 2021.

    Draft Revised Community Plan 2016-2025

    Port Pirie Regional Council is embarking on a review of our Community Plan 2016-2025 and we would love to hear from you!

    The Review Process

    Councils are required to undertake regular reviews of their Strategic Plans with a focus on strategies and objectives.

    A community survey was conducted in April/May this year to gather valuable information from the community on Council services, facilities and activities.

    The community provided us with great feedback and it is clear that community wellbeing, footpaths, unsealed roads, tree maintenance and the overall appearance of towns, playgrounds and the Port Pirie Riverfront are key focus areas. These ideas have been incorporated into the revised Community Plan.

    Workshops with Elected Members and input from Council’s Executive Management Team has also guided the revised draft Community Plan.

    Service Delivery

    As the COVID-19 pandemic has created a somewhat uncertain financial climate, Port Pirie Regional Council is considering a 5 year plan as opposed to a 10 year view.

    Council has also adopted an Integrated Business Improvement Framework which explores the strategic direction of Council, our service delivery and more effective communication of our service improvements and efficiencies. Throughout this process, Council has reviewed its vast array of plans to ensure the plans that are retained advance the direction of our strategic Community Plan.

    This alignment of plans is important to assist Council in becoming more focused on the services we deliver and closely align our promises to our capacity to deliver.

    How You Can Be Involved

    It is important that, as the name suggests, Council’s Community Plan 2016-2025 reflects the needs and desires of our community. We therefore invite you to take the time to read through our Community Plan and provide your feedback.
