INTEGRATED PLANNING AND REPORTING

Integrated planning and reporting is an organisational framework used to identify our priorities that drive the Shire’s operations. The framework consists of a number of strategic plans for identifying and prioritising local issues and requirements. 

The Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley wishes to advise community members that the current assets management plan is being redrafted and will be replaced once completed. 

Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework

The Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework (IPRF) ensures Council decisions look to the long-term future and consider the community’s aspirations to deliver the best results possible with the resources available. The framework is also designed to have a stronger focus on place-shaping and wellbeing while requiring a greater level of community engagement.

The primary aims of the Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework include:

  • articulate the community’s vision, priorities and desired outcomes
  • allocate resources to achieve the vision, striking a considered balance between aspirations and affordability
  • monitor and report on progress

The IPRF requires the Shire to have three levels of integrated strategic planning, informed and supported by appropriate resourcing and asset management plans.  The framework consists of a number of strategic plans for identifying and prioritising local issues. The strategic plans set the goals and direction for the Shire's future activities. It integrates asset, service and financial plans so that the Shire’s resource capabilities match community needs. The most important of these is the Strategic Community Plan.

Strategic Community Plan 

The Strategic Community Plan sets out the long term vision of the community for the next 10 years.  It is a strategic roadmap of where the community wants to go and how we will get there.  The Plan is intended to be a resource to help guide policies, strategies and actions that relate to the Shire and the community.

The Strategic Community Plan goes beyond what the Shire can address directly through existing services and facilities.  The Strategic Community Plan sets the foundation for working in partnership with others to achieve desired goals and outcomes, and also identify issues for which the Council and Shire administration will advocate on behalf of the community.

Focus Area 1:  PEOPLE - Healthy vibrant active communities
Focus Area 2:  PLACE - Enhancing the environment
Focus Area 3:  PROSPERITY - Economic prosperity
Focus Area 4:  PERFORMANCE - Civic leadership

Corporate Business Plans 

The Corporate Business Plan is the Shire’s 4-year planning document. It gives effect to the first four years of the Strategic Community Plan and is pivotal in ensuring that the medium-term commitments are both strategically aligned and affordable.

The Corporate Business Plan guides the Shire on what services and projects will be resourced and delivered over the next four year period. The Plan is the key document informing the preparation of our annual budget and ensures that the Strategic Community Plan is activated whilst also taking into account other key strategies and plans such as the Asset Management Plan, Long Term Financial Plan and Workforce Plan.

The activities within the Corporate Business Plan are reviewed and reprioritised annually to ensure the community’s vision is being implemented.

Key Informing Plans 

The Strategic Community Plan and Corporate Business Plan are informed by several other key informing plans.  Key informing plans inform the Shire about how capable it is to deliver the services and assets required by the community.

The Shire’s Key Informing Plans form the basis of the resourcing strategy.  The Key informing plans outline the resources available in terms of people, finances and assets.

The Council will ensure that there are adequate resources provided in the integrated planning development and delivery stages of the Framework to ensure timelines and legislative requirements are met and that the community expectations are addressed in a sustainable manner.
