Infrastructure and Asset Management Plans

Infrastructure and Asset Management Plans (IAMPs) provide Council with a summary of Council’s assets, the current status of the assets, set future goals and upgrades and highlight potential future expenses due to maintenance, renewal or upgrade.

Council is in the process of its scheduled review of its IAMPs. As part of this review it was determined to have all plans contained within a single document with chapters for each asset class as well as an introductory chapter containing information common to all asset classes as well as an overall picture of all Council assets.

The planned structure is:

  • Chapter 1 – General Statements
  • Chapter 2 – Airport
  • Chapter 3 – Buildings and Complexes
  • Chapter 4 – CWMS
  • Chapter 5 – Land
  • Chapter 6 – Plant and Equipment
  • Chapter 7 – Recreation and Open Space
  • Chapter 8 – Stormwater
  • Chapter 9 – Transport

Chapter 1 – General Statements, Chapter 4 – CWMS and Chapter 8 - Stormwater of the IAMP have been developed and Council is now seeking feedback on the documents.

The previous versions of these plans and the other existing IAMPs are available on our website. These will be reviewed as scheduled and updated to be included within this framework.

The documents for comment are available for download:

Chapter 1 – General Statements

Chapter 4 - CWMS

Chapter 8 - Stormwater of the IAMP 

Consultation closes 5.00pm Thursday 12 December 2019.
