Have your say on the City of Adelaide’s Draft 2020-2021 Business Plan & Budget.

A word from our Lord Mayor...

What is the Business Plan & Budget and why is it important?

The Business Plan & Budget is the key annual operational and financial planning document of the City of Adelaide. It sets out the key activities, projects and services we plan to provide in the upcoming financial year, our sources of revenue, and how we propose to allocate our budget.

The 2020-2021 Business Plan & Budget (the Plan) is the first annual business plan and budget to deliver on the 2020-2024 Strategic Plan and the vision - Adelaide the most liveable city in the world.

The Plan has been developed in the context of delivering our long-term strategic direction set out in the City of Adelaide 2020-2024 Strategic Plan and in the context of the challenges, financial constraints, and opportunities arising from COVID-19.

The restrictions on social gatherings, the temporary closure of venues and cultural institutions, border closures and many businesses closing, reducing hours, or supporting their people to work remotely, has dramatically changed the landscape of the city.

The absence of people in our City for many weeks directly affected City of Adelaide revenue. The pressure on our income and cash-flow was immediate and the effect has extended into this financial year, including an expected reduction in our fees and charges income of approximately $21 million.

We know that in 2020-2021, given these ongoing economic impacts and challenges presented by COVID-19, that we need to reduce our operating expenditure by $20 million.

We are seeking your views on how we might best do that by understanding the value you place on the services we deliver.

    I wonder whether the Council has considered what 'value metrics' might be established to measure 5.07? I would be very interested in working with you to explore the development of this policy. In particular I am interested in how procurement links to economic growth in community via localised production. in regards to KEY ACTIVITIES FOR 2020 - 2021 FOR ENABLING PRIORITIES 5.07 Develop a new policy covering the way council buys goods and services, with a focus on best value for money and improving social, environmental, cultural and local business outcomes. Delivered by: December 2020 Strategic Plan Key Action: 5.07 Implement Sustainable (financial, environmental, social, cultural) Procurement Policy

    Angelina Russo Asked 22 days ago

    Thanks very much for your question and your interest in our Sustainable Procurement!  Council is considering numerous ways to implement this strategic key action and has already held workshops to better understand what this could mean. The immediate result to delivering on this will be a new policy for Council. This policy document will help guide our external community who wish to participate in our procurement processes and provide a better understanding on what ‘social, environmental, cultural and local’ means.  We are also working to identify key metrics and measures and I’m sure that there will be further opportunities to engage with yourself and the broader community as we progress with the developing the policy further

    Is there a long term plan of putting residential street power cables underground? Removing the poles will clean up the noise, modernize the streetscape and eliminate interference with trees.

    J L Townsend Asked 26 days ago

    City of Adelaide (CoA) supports the Undergrounding of SA Power Networks Overhead cabling and the removal of SA Power Networks Stobie Poles.

    We are currently undertaking a review to update the Undergrounding Policy and associated CoA Undergrounding Funding Schemes in 2020-2021.  

    These works will inform the long term planning of undergrounding projects within our City including residential streets.

    Undergrounding works recently completed in Jeffcott Street, Adelaide included the undergrounding of overhead power lines and the removal of stobie poles, enabling the trees to be preserved and streetscaping to improve the appearance of the locality. These works were completed by the City of Adelaide in conjunction with the Power Line Environment Committee
