Long Term Financial Plan and Asset Management Plans

Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP) is produced to support Council in considering the longer term impact of financial decisions made and assumptions used in the preparation of the Annual Budget and Business Plan.

The Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP) addresses:

  • the sustainability of the Council’s financial performance and position;
  • the maintenance, replacement or development needs for infrastructure within its area; and
  • identification of any anticipated or predicted changes that will have a significant effect upon the costs of the Council’s  activities/operations

Council is required to review its LTFP annually, as soon as practicable after the adoption of its Annual Business Plan. See here

The Long Term Financial Plan covers a period of ten years and along with Asset Management Plans form part of Council’s suite of Strategic Management Plans.
