Asset Management Planning
Council provides a range of services to the community. Some of these services are provided by infrastructure assets. Council has acquired infrastructure assets by purchase, contract, construction by council staff and by donation of assets from developers and others to meet increased levels of service.
Council’s goal in managing infrastructure assets is to meet the required level of service in the most cost effective manner for present and future consumers. The Asset Management Strategy and General Asset Management Plan provide a framework allowing Council to make informed decisions on current and future services/service levels.
Plans are reviewed regularly to include revised plans that are specific to individual assets classes - stormwater drainage, roads, bridges,buildings, footpaths, parks and recreation, coastal infrastructure and the Airport.
Playground & Public Open Space Strategy
The Playground and Public Open Space Strategy (POS) was developed to give the Shire clear forward direction relating to the management, upgrade and development of playgrounds and public open spaces over the next ten years.

Dempster Head Management Plan
Council adopted the Dempster Head Management Plan 2018 at the June Ordinary Council Meeting.
Minor changes were made to the Plan after it was released for public comment in April this year. South Coast Natural Resource Management (SCNRM) was engaged to undertake key works to review and update the 2003 Dempster Head Management Plan to reflect the current conditions of the area and provide clear direction on the future management of this reserve.
South Coast NRM sought information from a range of community groups to develop an updated Plan that would ensure this natural asset will continue to be enjoyed by locals and visitors. The Draft Plan was released for public comment for a period of 21 days in which time Council received 34 submissions. The submissions received were reviewed by the Shire and South Coast NRM, with the final document reflecting the many users of this reserve.
