The Hills Shire Council is calling for the community to view and comment on the draft 2013-2014 Hills Shire Plan – a five-part document that provides the framework by which the organisation plans to operate during the next financial year.

The Community Strategic Plan  “Hills  Future”  sets the long-term Strategic Direction  for The Hills Shire 
and was prepared  after extensive community consultation. This document  is structured around five themes. These themes reflect the highest priority issues raised by the community. Under each theme there are various outcomes. These reflect what the community wants. What Council will do to deliver the outcomes is reflected under the strategies. Effectiveness of these will be measured by the quality of life measures identified. 

The Delivery Program responds to the Hills Future Strategic Direction and its main purpose is to communicate what Council will deliver to the community over its four-year term and it is updated each year with any new actions that are required.

The Operational Plan sets out in detail the activities Council proposes to carry out in the next financial year and will be contributing to achieving the Council outcomes under each theme.

The Resourcing Strategy consists of the Long-Term Financial Plan (LTFP), Asset Management Strategy and the Workforce Strategy. The LTFP details all the financial policies upon which the LTFP has been prepared and it contains the operating statement, balance sheet and cash flow statements for the next 10 years. It also shows how the budget result reconciles to the operating surplus. The Asset Management Strategy under the draft Resourcing Strategy outlines all capital improvements Council plans to carry out in 2013/2014 and an indication of what is planned for the next three years. Also included is a schedule of draft Fees and Charges proposed for the next financial year.
