    What is an asset?

    An asset is everything Council owns that has value. For the purposes of this Asset Plan however, only tangible infrastructure assets that are managed by Council are considered, and are grouped into three categories:

    Council's assets enable us to provide valuable services to our community and make a real difference in the lives of our residents.

    What is an Asset Plan?

    The Asset Plan is a document that shows how Council will plan for, build, look after and use its assets to provide services to the community. The Asset Plan will help Council make informed decisions about its assets now and over the next ten years.

    Why do we need an Asset Plan?

    Under the Local Government Act 2020, Council is required to develop an Asset Plan. The Asset Plan will provide our community with a broad overview of the assets managed by Council and how we will responsibly manage these assets to meet the service delivery needs of our community into the future in a cost-effective way.
