Annual Business Plan 2018-19

The Annual Business Plan identifies Council’s commitment to projects for 2018-19 and is derived from Council’s Strategic Management and Action Plan 2014-2018. The Plan aims to maintain and improve relevant, efficient services for the Community.

Council has adopted an ambitious 10 year Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP) with the end objective being financial sustainability. The 2018-19 Annual Business Plan is the fourth year of the LTFP and Council is committed to this 10 year journey which will include identifying and adopting specific objectives and actions for the year consistent with the Council’s Strategic Plan, Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP) and Infrastructure and Asset Management Plans (IAMP) to ensure the appropriate management of Council’s revenue.

Emu Bay Pop-Up Café License

The 3-month trial period for the Emu Bay Pop-Up Café is now closed. Over the 3months, Council’s Asset Services, Development & Environment and Governance Officers have been working with the Café owner in trying several positions for the van and monitoring the impact the van has in terms of vehicle and pedestrian traffic movement and general safety in the area.

That the land was revoked from Crown Land to Council’s care and control has been of significant benefit as the Asset Services’ Technical Program Manager has been able to design road infrastructure and develop mechanisms to better control traffic movement and improve safety. These inputs, which have been commenced and would benefit the area regardless of whether the Café was in place, can be seen on the area map below.

 PC Mini De Lights Map

The owner of the Mini De Lights Pop-up Café has applied for a License to operate the business on the site shown on the map  above. Under Section 202 (2) of the Local Government Act 1999, Council is required to undertake a Community Consultation prior to granting a license over Council land.

Hard copies of this consultation will also available for public viewing at the Kangaroo Island Council office and the Penneshaw Community Business Centre. 


Have your say:

Consultation opens 9.00am, Wednesday 9 May 2018 and closes 5.00pm, Wednesday 6 June 2018. 


Next Steps:


Following consultation, all feedback will be documented and tabled before Council for it to make a final determination on whether to grant the License.
