singleton in 2027 logo.jpg
The Singleton Community Strategic Plan 2017 – 2027 will be the blueprint for the future of Singleton for the next 10 years, setting the course for a vibrant, progressive, sustainable, connected and resilient community.

The Singleton Community Strategic Plan is a representation of the long term vision of our community. This Plan has been determined by you, our community, and outlines the expectations, aspirations and challenges for the Singleton community into the future.

The Plan will be supported by the Delivery Program 2017 – 2021, Resourcing Strategy and 2017 – 2018 Operational Plan.

Delivery Program 2017 - 2021
The conversations our community had with Council during the development of the new Community Strategic Plan were vital to outlining the vision for Singleton for the next 10 years, and ensuring the services we provide align with the needs and expectations of our residents.  

The Singleton Council Delivery Program 2017-2021 is an important document, because it drives the medium-term action plan for how our Council is going to turn the Community Strategic Plan into a reality over the next four years, and ultimately set the course for the next 10 years.

Operational Plan 2018 - 2019
The Singleton Council Operational Plan is a detailed map of how Council will work to deliver the needs and aspirations of our community as outlined in the Community Strategic Plan and Delivery Program.

Resourcing Strategy

The long term aspirations of the community cannot be achieved without the planning and provision of sufficient resources such as time, money, assets and people.

The Resourcing Strategy details how Council intends to manage these resources over the long term as it delivers the strategies and actions detailed in the Delivery Program and the Operational Plan.

The Resourcing Strategy consists of three key components. These three components provide the evidence for Council and the community to understand the constraints and opportunities it must work within to deliver the objectives of the Singleton Community Strategic Plan.

The three components of the Resourcing Strategy are:

Long Term Financial Plan   

The Long Term Financial Plan (10 years) ensures Council has analysed and planned the financial resources required to manage its assets, infrastructure and operations over the next ten years as our community moves towards the strategies outlined in the Singleton Community Strategic Plan.

In particular, it focuses on how Council will manage its finances to implement the Four Year Delivery Program and the annual Operational Plan. Given the future is unknown, it presents a series of scenarios and outlines the assumptions that underpin the financial planning. The Long Term Financial Plan will be reviewed and updated regularly as part of the quarterly reporting process.

Workforce Management Plan – Our People Strategy 

Workforce Management Planning - The Workforce Management Strategy (4 years) details how human resourcing will be managed to implement the Four Year Delivery Program and Annual Operational Plan. The Strategy deals with both labour supply arrangements and human resource management actions. It analyses the current environment and outlines broad strategies that Council will implement to manage potential risks and gaps.

Asset Management Plan

The Asset Management Strategy (10 years) and Asset Management Plans detail the actions necessary for Council to understand and improve its asset management capability, to project asset related resource requirements and to set timeframes for key asset maintenance and replacement activities.

It provides details of our key assets, current assessment of service levels and our risk management approach associated with these assets. It is a comprehensive picture of the state of our assets and the future management requirements.

Fees and Charges Schedule 2017 - 2018
Singleton Council's Fees and Charges Schedule 2018 -2019 details the costs of using Council's services and facilities. 

Integrated Planning & Reporting Framework
A new planning and reporting framework was introduced in NSW in 2009 replacing the former Management Plan structure. The new framework helps communities plan for their future under the stewardship of local government.

The changes required Council to prepare a 10-year Community Strategic Plan, a four-year Delivery Program and a one-year Operational Plan.
