Frequently asked questions

The Delivery Program is a three-year plan that covers the term of our elected Council. To create our Delivery Program, we reviewed the CSP and asked what we can achieve over the next three years to bring us closer to the community’s vision and priorities.

The Operational Plan 2019/20 outlines the actions and projects that will be undertaken for each three-year objective and identified who has primary responsibility. The resourcing strategies support these documents and provide us with important information about our current resources and show our consideration of the staff, assets and money required to deliver the three-year objectives and annual actions and projects
The Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) Framework recognises communities share aspirations around matters such as safety, health, built environment and liveability. It identifies that our plans shouldn't exist in isolation and that planning should occur holistically. All Council's in NSW must work within the IP&R framework which promotes integration across the various service areas within Council and also State level plans.

Our Budget forms part of the Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework. It outlines actions and objectives CN will undertake to achieve the strategies outlined in the Newcastle 2030 Community Strategic Plan (CSP).
