Delivery Program and Operational Plan

Central Coast Council’s Delivery Program is Council’s commitment to deliver the activities included in the Community Strategic Plan . Each financial year, an Operational Plan and annual budget sets out the individual projects and actions to be undertaken in a year and includes financial estimates and performance indicators, details of the capital works program and the Schedule of Fees and Charges. Progress and performance are monitored throughout the year, and outlined in quarterly and annual reports. Together, these documents link to the Community Strategic Plan and demonstrate Council’s commitment to delivering One – Central Coast.


Council’s Operational Plan for 2021-22 outlines an operating budget of $659.8M and a capital works budget of $175.0M. The budget reflects a commitment to deliver essential services and key projects whilst moving Council towards financial sustainability. Reducing capital expenditure by $70M was a fundamental component of necessary measures to ensure Council remained financially viable and to satisfy the requirements of commercial loans. The adopted Operational Plan reflects the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) decision to approve a 15 percent special rate variation increase for the Central Coast for three years commencing in the 2021-22 financial year.
