Resourcing Strategy

A plan considering the availability of resources to deliver the Community Strategic Plan.

The Resourcing Strategy assesses the capacity of Council’s financial, workforce, technology and asset management resources to deliver the Community Strategic Plan. It informs the preparation of the Delivery Program to ensure that what is planned can be sustainably delivered.

The three components of the Resourcing Strategy are:

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Asset Management Strategy
    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 time frames 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.
