Cumberland Draft Operational Plan 2019-20

Consultation has concluded

Cumberland Council is inviting public comment on its Draft Operational Plan 2019 – 2020.

The Draft Plan has been developed in response to community priorities, service satisfaction trends and Councillor priorities.

The Draft Plan is Council’s response to the strategic goals and community vision as identified in the Cumberland Community Strategic Plan 2017-27.

Specifically, the Draft Plan sets out the principle activities that Council will undertake to contribute to the vision, as well as how Council plans to sustainably resource these activities and measure and report on their progress.

A sub-section of the Draft Operational Plan is the Draft Fees and Charges for 2019-20. These are being exhibited as a separate document.

The Draft Plan is organised into 12 Key Service Areas:

  • Community Programs and Events – In this Service Area Council sets outs its activities for the wide range of cultural, social and community focussed projects aimed at access, inclusion and harmony. This Service Area helps increase the liveability and sense of community in Cumberland
  • Roads, Stormwater and Street Cleaning – Council maintains an extensive system of roads, stormwater drains and street cleansing services to ensure public places are clean and attractive.
  • Parks and Recreation – Council is responsible for planning and designing local open spaces, sportsgrounds and play spaces. Council also maintains local parks and gardens, sportsgrounds, golf courses, play spaces, hard courts, bush reserves, corridors and streetscapes that make up the approximately 700ha of green space in Cumberland.
  • Environmental Programs – Council provides a wide range of community-focused waste education and environmental initiatives to help residents live sustainably.
  • Household Waste and Recycling – Council ensures scheduled garbage and recycling bin collection for all residents. This includes pre-booked household clean-up service as well as dedicated collection services for problem and electronic waste types. Council also collects illegally dumped rubbish to keep public spaces tidy.
  • Children’s Services – Council develops and delivers programs to meet the needs of children and families in Cumberland. Council owns and directly manages 17 education and care centres that offer a range of flexible options for families. This includes long day care centres, holiday programs, occasional care and family day care centres.
  • Urban Planning and Development – Council provides strategic planning and development services to ensure land is used in the best way for the community and complies with Council’s best practice planning policies.
  • Regulatory Programs – Council regulates and enforces health and safety standards across the Cumberland LGA.
  • Libraries – Council provides a network of eight modern, well-resources libraries. Council’s library network provides a range of services and programs for the community. In its libraries, Council facilitates and conducts community learning, educational, recreational and development programs.
  • Pools – Cumberland Council operates 5 aquatic facilities located in Lidcombe, Merrylands, Granville, Guildford and Wentworthville. Services within these facilities include Learn-to-Swim programs, sporting events, gyms and family leisure activities.
  • Governance and Administration – Council ensures that its internal service functions maintain a transparent relationship with ratepayers through robust leadership underpinned by a foundation of good governance. These internal functions and controls ensure that decision making is transparent and accountable, and that internal activities are honest and free from fraud or corruption.
  • Community Facilities and Property – Council owns and operates a large number of community facilities used by the community to deliver social, cultural and recreational programs. These include multipurpose community centres, arts and cultural facilities, halls and meeting rooms.

The Draft Plan will be on Public Exhibition from 3 – 30 May 2019.
