The Financial Management Strategy provides the Council with a framework to guide the development of annual budgets and the preparation of longer-term financial planning. The key objective of the Financial Management Strategy is to ensure that Council can sustainably fund the ongoing delivery of services whilst implementing the objectives identified in the Strategic Plan. 

The Long-Term Financial Management Plan provides a tool for Council to consider the financial impact of its decision on Council’s future sustainability. The model assists Council to estimate future costs or opportunities that arise from short term decisions, enables continuous improvement of asset and financial management practise, maintains stable and predictable rates increases and establishes long-term financial sustainability and monitoring. 

Council is required to provide estimates of the Council's revenue and expenditure for each financial year. The budget is developed in alignment with both the Long-Term Financial Management Plan and the Annual Plan; balancing the activities of Council with financial sustainability over the long term.
