City of Adelaide currently owns and manages approximately $2 billion worth of assets on behalf of our community. These assets range from infrastructure such as roads and buildings through to items such as park furniture and play equipment. These assets are a significant investment and require sound strategic management so that they are sustainability managed and continue to support the needs of the community.
The Strategic Asset Management Plan (SAMP) is Council’s strategic approach to delivering its asset management policy and managing its assets over the next 10 years. The aim of the SAMP is to transform the way that the City of Adelaide manages assets to enable long-term sustainability. This approach will enable Adelaide to grow and prosper over the next decade, while maintaining levels of service and ensuring intergenerational equity.
The SAMP is the strategy set by Council to inform the development of detailed Asset Management Plans.
The Council, in the SAMP, has identified strategic actions to support the delivery of its asset management policy. We would like to know what you think of these. Council’s significant ageing asset portfolio needs strategic management to ensure that it is managed sustainably. Council have developed some “levers” which can be implemented to ensure we are getting the best value for rate payers and stretching Council’s dollar further in relation to the City of Adelaide asset portfolio.
Consultation has concluded.
