The 2022-2023 Business Plan and Budget is our key annual operational and financial planning document. It delivers Year 3 of the City of Adelaide 2020 – 2024 Strategic Plan, with a vision of ‘Adelaide. The most liveable city in the world.’ This annual plan sets out the key projects, priorities and services that we will deliver, our sources of revenue, and how we propose to allocate our budget and other resources to achieve this.

Council is committed to maintaining quality services and facilities for our community. With a future proofing focus, we will deliver services which attract people to live, work, play, study, visit and undertake business within the city. We are proud to have delivered and maintained a $4.7m budget repair as well as finding $7.5m through efficiencies to support Reignite Adelaide. We will continue to focus on responsible financial management without impact to services in 2022/23. Our budget proposes a small deficit position of $214,000. Council is committed to being innovative with the resources we have, to be deliberate about improving service efficiency, to identify new revenue sources, to manage risks and create new opportunities for income.

    The Draft Annual Business Plan and Budget 2022/23 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.

    Each year, we develop our annual Business Plan and Budget in alignment to our long-term strategies: Council’s Strategic Plan, Long Term Financial Plan and Strategic Asset Management Plans. This ensures we stay on course to achieve our objectives. To support this, we also develop Service Plans by listening to and working with our community, businesses, other levels of government and visitors, and by considering external factors. This helps us to understand, cost and plan for today and the future and ensures continued and sustainable services are delivered for our communities. The proposed services and budget initiatives in this Plan have been formed based on information and insights, in response to what we know about our city and our communities from our research and engagement activities (please refer to page 14 of the document for further information, by clicking here).
