What are council assets?

We manage $1.237 billion assets on behalf of the community – things like roads, paths, drains, bridges, buildings, playgrounds and sports facilities.

The choices we make today about how we look after and invest in those assets can impact the quality of life of future generations.

Over the next 10 years we will spend $698.3 million to renew, improve and care for our assets.

We need to carefully balance how we spend the budget available to make sure we:

  • maintain our assets well so they last the test of time
  • upgrade them so they last longer and better meet the needs of users
  • build or acquire new assets that meet new needs in the community

Understanding our community’s changing needs and priorities helps us ensure that our investment in assets is appropriate.
