Capital Works Program

Council has an annual Capital Works Program which for 2016-2017 is worth over $28m.

This program of works is based on funds collected from standard Council resources such as rates, fees and charges. However, they are significantly added to by extra income streams. These extra income streams include successful grant applications from both Council staff and community groups, holiday park profits, property investments, developer contributions and donations.

Each year our corporate target is to reach 90% of the works outlined in the annual program.

The list of works to be completed in any given year is based on our forward works plans which form part of our integrated strategic plans.

Please also see the Capital Works Update for 2016-2017 (PDF 4.5MB) for more information.
