Draft Operational Plan and Budget 2020-21

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Each year, Randwick City Council prepares an Operational Plan and Budget which outlines our planned activities for the coming financial year.

This year, when crafting our Draft Operational Plan and Budget 2020-2021, our focus is on resilience and adaptability. When our community (and the world) was hit by COVID-19, we needed to adapt to address the needs of the community.

Through a balanced and well-considered long-term strategy, which includes maintaining our three-year IPART-approved rating path, reducing expenditure, and accessing loan funding, we’ll target our investment into areas that need it most to help stimulate recovery.

There are four key areas that we have identified as being crucial to creating a resilient Randwick City:

Job creation - Implement a $48.6M million dollar capital works program to create more than 3,000 jobs;

Community support – Provide funding to help local community service providers support those who have felt the emotional and mental impacts of the pandemic. Work with ratepayers suffering financial hardship to find suitable repayment plans;

Business development – Invest more than $2.8M into initiatives purely focussed on local business support, such as waiving fees, expanding outdoor dining areas and more;

Recovery planning – Support business resilience by developing a destination management plan and exploring opportunities to enhance our night-time economy as well as improve lighting and footpaths in town centres.
