Cassowary Coast Regional Council manages assets with an approximate replacement value of AU $1.8 billion spanning all traditional local government types including roads, bridges, footpaths, stormwater, water, sewerage, parks, buildings, waste, marine facilities, fleet and information technology.
Council’s adopted core Asset Management Plans for every asset class are available for download at the bottom of the page.
The next priorities for Council are defined in its Asset Management Strategy and also within the Improvement Plans contained in every Asset Management Plan.
There are numerous improvement projects occurring across Council to improve services and manage costs to ensure the public infrastructure is maintained to a desirable level, whilst not negatively impacting long term sustainability.
Council has commenced the Asset Rationalisation project to achieve its commitment to ratepayers to generate savings by rationalising some assets that are unused or underutilised. Through a methodical and inclusive approach Council is engaging key stakeholders to determine a better way of achieving improved outcomes for the community, for relevant user groups and for the ratepayer.
