Fit for the Future

Consultation has concluded

The State Government has introduced a series of reforms for NSW Local Government called Fit for the Future. These reforms are intended to provide communities across the State with confidence that councils are financially sound, operating efficiently and in a strong position to guide community growth and deliver quality services.

All Council's in NSW must submit a proposal to the State Government addressing criteria in the areas of scale, capacity and financial health. Wingecarribee Council is developing strategies to strengthen our operations and improve efficiencies. The early signs are that our current financials are in good shape, however we still have a great deal of work before us.

Please take a look at the information in our document library or ask a question. Further information will be shared on the page as work on our submission progresses.

    Hi Brie, thanks for the question.

    It's difficult to answer without specifics but we have an ongoing process for reviewing the suitability and effectiveness of any position that becomes vacant to ensure the functions and responsibilities of positons are meeting both customer and organisational needs.

    As part of the development of our Fit for the Future proposal Council continues to look at ways to become more efficient and effective in the delivery of services and facilities to the community.
