Integrated Planning and Reporting (IPR) Framework

Integrated Planning and Reporting (IPR) Framework

Local councils in NSW are required to undertake their planning and reporting activities in accordance with the Local Government Act 1993 (Act) and the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005 (Regulation).

The Act and Regulation provides guidelines for councils to follow to ensure community involvement is central to the formation of strategic plans that drive council’s long term planning and day to day operations. The Integrated Planning and Reporting (IPR) Framework (Figure 1) is the name given to that section of the Act and Regulation that deals with Council’s planning processes and the community’s involvement.

Community engagement through the Community Engagement Policy provides a comprehensive structure for gaining community feedback on the needs and wants for the Shoalhaven. Through community consultation a 10-year Community Strategic Plan (CSP) was developed and published. The CSP sets out the community’s long term vision for Shoalhaven.

Council’s four-year Delivery Program and one year Operational Plan addresses Council’s commitment to achieving its part in the CSP. Council’s Resourcing Strategy details the resources available to Council to deliver the Delivery Program Goals and Operational Plan Actions. Reporting on the progress of achieving Priorities, Goals and Actions closes the loop and provides Council and community with important information for the next iteration of the IP&R cycle.
