Each year the Council allocates funding to a capital works program. Capital expenditure requirements are sourced from Council’s asset management plan, inspection programs and condition assessments, as well as the Strategic Plan.
Asset renewal expenditure is expenditure on an existing asset to renew or replace it as it has reached the end of its useful service life. An example would be the resealing of a bitumen road. Asset upgrades are carried out to address deficiencies in current service levels or to meet new standards or statutory requirements. An example of this would be the need to increase the diameter of a stormwater pipe, or to increase the softfall requirements in a playground due to changes in Australian Standards.
The following table is a summary of some of the capital works planned for 2020/21 (more info). Please continue to check this page for updates on projects.
