Planning is now well under way to introduce the 2013–2017 Darebin City Council Plan (the Plan) and the 2013/14 budget.
The Council Plan explains how Darebin City Council will implement its Vision, Mission and Goals by the end of the Council’s four-year term. It articulates the goals and outcomes against which the Council will be measured and explains, at a high level, how the Council will achieve them. The detail of what Darebin City Council will do and how it will fund its activities is agreed each year as part of the Plan and Budget process.
The Council Plan commitments respond to the feedback and contributions gathered through a broad consultative process and an analysis of relevant trends. Darebin Council officers had direct discussions with well over a thousand people during the preparation process, the results of which have strongly influenced the Plan’s Vision, Mission and its detailed strategies.
The proposed 2013/14 budget details how the first year of the 2013/2017 Council Plan will be resourced. The proposed 2013/14 Rating Strategy details how the rates will be set for 2013/14.
