Integrated planning and reporting

Integrated Planning and Reporting (‘IP&R’) was introduced by the NSW State Government in 2012 as part of the Local Government Reform Program. IP&R brought about wholesale changes which affected strategic and operational planning, and also how Councils must report on performance and delivery of actions.

Our IP&R Framework has been developed in consultation with Constituent Councils, having specific regard to their community strategic plans. Our IP&R Framework identifies Council’s main business activity priorities for at least 10 years from when the plan is endorsed, and establishes strategic objectives together with methods for achieving those objectives. The Framework is designed to provide an integrated forward plan; setting out what Council will do, how it will do it and how its performance will be measured and reported. Financial management, people management and asset management are all included in this planning.

As of 1 July 2016 Rous Water, Far North Coast Weeds and Richmond River County Council merged as Rous County Council. Far North Coast County Council (FNCW) and Richmond River County Council (RRCC) have been dissolved with all functions transferring to Rous County Council effective 1 July 2016.  While there will be some operational changes to attend to, our community and customers can expect business as usual with the continued delivery of high quality services in all three areas. Council will continue to provide existing documents until such time as a Rous County Council version is made available.

A copy of Council’s current suite of documents may be found below:
