Council Plan and Budget

In 2021–2022 the Budget provides nearly $260 million to fund service delivery and infrastructure projects. Each year, our Budget provides services for people at all stages of life, maintaining our infrastructure, community facilities and parks, operating our libraries, events, festivals and art centre as well as rubbish and recycling collections.

This Council Plan and Budget was developed following a time of significant upheaval for our residents and local traders, due to the pandemic. Recognising ongoing help is needed to get us back on track, this budget will build on our existing COVID Recovery Package.

The package will receive a $3.86 million boost — to a total of $9.128 million in ongoing support for our community.

Long Term Financial Plan

The Long Term Financial Plan 2019-2029 represents a sound and comprehensive financial framework on which Frankston City Council can base its financial decision making over the coming years.

Long Term Infrastructure Plan

Frankston City Council’s Long Term Infrastructure Plan (LTIP) is the product of robust budget development processes and guide Council’s capital investment for the next ten (10) years. 

The LTIP outlines Council’s approach to maintaining and improving core infrastructure during the period of 2019 to 2029.  The LTIP has been developed after careful consideration of existing commitments and plans and aims to:

  • Better integrate land use and local infrastructure planning in support a growing and changing community;
  • Plan, prioritise and deliver an infrastructure program that represents the best possible investment and use of Council funds;
  • Optimise the management, performance and use of Council’s assets;
  • Provide the infrastructure necessary to support Council’s current and future service delivery to the community; and
  • Embrace the future of technology and leveraging our technology to transform the way Council delivers its services to support our customers and our business needs.

Finance Plan

The Finance Plan defines the broad financial boundaries for Council over the next ten years.

The plan is made up of three main sections:

  • The Financial Policies that set out the financial targets that ensure Council remains financially sustainable
  • The Financial Strategy that identifies the approach Council intends to take to achieve the financial policies
  • The Financial Statements that apply the financial strategies to a ten year financial model to ensure that Council meets its Financial Policy targets.

The Local Government Act 2020 (The Act) requires Councils to prepare a ten year Financial Plan in the year following a general election through the introduction of governance and supporting principles which include an integrated approach to planning, monitoring and performance reporting.
