Councils 4 Year Plan - revised 14 October 2021
The Burnie City Council adopted a 4 Year Council Plan at its October Council meeting last night.
The Council Plan has been developed with the input of both Councillors and senior staff which contains three key deliverables that will determine the major areas of focus for the Council over the next four year period.
Burnie City Council Mayor Steve Kons said “The key deliverables (goals) in our 4 Year Plan are:
  1. to have a Vibrant Town Centre by enhancing the attractiveness and vitality of our town centre
  2. to use strategic management in planning for, delivering and operating all of Council’s Community Facilities to Support Liveability; and
  3. to be Environmentally Responsible by protecting and improving our environment as a whole.”

To achieve a Vibrant Town Centre the Council is committed to delivering a town centre that is clean, well maintained and attractive; ensuring that recreational and public space is activated and that entertainment and leisure events are facilitated with key partners, and that the town centre is multi-functional, well connected and lived in.

For our Community Facilities to Support Liveability - the Council is committed to ensuring that the building and maintenance of Council facilities aligns with Council’s strategic priorities and community needs and that facilities are maximized for community benefit, are well managed and are used safely.
The Council is committed to being Environmentally Responsible by protecting and improving our environment as a whole, to minimising Council’s negative impact on our environment, mitigating the impacts of climate change, and reducing Burnie’s waste stream to landfill while also supporting our community to improve our environment for future generations.
Importantly, the Council Plan also includes six enablers which will underpin the successful delivery of the Council Plan by ensuring an effective and efficient operating environment focused on: financial management; our people; community consultation; data to inform evidenced based decision making; digital transformation; and agility.
