The Local Government Act 1999 (The Act), section 122, requires Councils to prepare a suite of Strategic Management Plans (“SMPs”) that set out the long-term vision, planning and financial sustainability of a Council’s operations.
The City of Port Lincoln’s Strategic Management Plans are:
The Long Term Financial Plan and the Infrastructure and Asset Management Plan are essential to both enabling and ensuring the delivery capability and financial sustainability of the community’s needs, expectations and plans over the future 10 year period.
The LTFP enables Council to model, forecast and make decisions on possible future funding for operational needs, renewal and replacement of existing assets and new and upgraded assets to meet future service demands.
The purpose of the LTFP is to express, in financial terms, the activities that Council proposes to undertake over the medium to longer term to achieve its stated objectives and it is a guide for future action. The aggregation of future intended outlays and anticipated revenues enables the accumulating overall financial implications to be readily identified and, if warranted, proposed future activities to be revised.
Council is required to undertake a review of its LTFP as soon as practicable after adopting Council’s Annual Business Plan (ABP) each financial year (122(4)(a)).
At the meeting of Council held March 7, 2016 the Long Term Financial Plan for 2017-2026 was adopted.

The City of Port Lincoln has a significant portfolio of community assets under its care and control. Council is the custodian of buildings, recreation and other community assets in partnership with government, community, private groups and other external parties. Through its assets, Council aims to provide quality public infrastructure and amenities that are safe, functional and meet the needs of the local community, visitors, tourists, industry and commerce and Council employees.
The purpose of the Infrastructure and Asset Management Plan is to demonstrate responsive management of assets (and services provided implicitly from assets) in compliance with regulatory requirements, and to communicate funding required to provide and maintain the required levels of service.
The IAMP reflects current asset data held for financial purposes in Council’s Asset Register, including remaining useful life, condition rating and replacement value for all assets, except for road re-seal expenditure, and identifies ‘projected’ expenditure required on maintenance and renewal of existing assets based on the Asset Register and RSM data, together with a number of new and upgrade capital infrastructure projects that Council has previously identified to deliver the Strategic Directions Plan 2012.
The IAMP incorporates the asset classes:

The Sustainable Projects Delivery Plan will be used as a key reference in the compilation of the Annual Business Plan and Budget each financial year. The Plan has taken the Strategic Actions from the Strategic Directions Plan 2016-2026 and prioritised and budgeted the Strategic Actions over the next 10 year period.
At the meeting of Council held November 21, 2016 the Sustainable Projects Delivery Plan for 2018-2027 was adopted.
