Integrated Planning & Reporting


Local government depends largely on its capacity to anticipate and respond to the forces that will shape communities in the coming years.  The Integrated Planning & Reporting framework is essentially a set of tools for council to create integrated plans for the future of the community which can be implemented in a meaningful way. The key benefits include:

  • improved sustainability of the local community by encouraging councils, State agencies and the community to work together on long term plans
  • improved connection between councils and community vision
  • a strengthened strategic focus for councils and the community
  • a more detailed understanding of the regional context within which councils operate
  • integration of planning processes and their implementation
  • reduced red tape and streamlined reporting
