Integrated Planning and Reporting

Why Integrated Planning and Reporting?

The Integrated Planning and Reporting framework recognises that most communities share similar aspirations: a safe, healthy and pleasant place to live, a sustainable environment, opportunities for social interaction, opportunities for employment, reliable infrastructure, etc. The difference lies in how each community responds to these needs. That is what shapes the character of individual towns and cities. It also recognises that the council plans and policies should not exist in isolation and that they are in fact connected. This framework allows NSW councils to draw their various plans together, to understand how they interact and to get the maximum leverage from their efforts by planning holistically for the future. All councils in NSW are required to be working within the Integrated Planning and Reporting framework (shown below).
