The Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework

The Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework is essentially a set of tools to create integrated plans for the future of the community.

The framework allows council to identify and plan for funding priorities and service levels in consultation with the community, while also preserving local identity and planning for a more sustainable future.

In response to the Gosford 2025 Community Strategic Plan, council has developed several key documents and processes detailing its responsibilities and commitments to the plan. 

These plans, along with the reports on the progress of each plan, outline the work council is currently doing within the community, as well as priorities for future services and how we are working to achieve the plans.

The End of Term Report summarises how council has implemented the Gosford 2025 Community Strategic Plan.
