Integrated Planning & Reporting Framework

The Integrated Planning & Reporting (IPR) framework is important for the strategic direction of local government and can assist to streamline and identify priorities for councils moving forward.

On this basis, Locale Consulting assisted a council on the south coast to review the IPR framework to establish a workable hierarchy of supporting documents so that outcomes of lower order documents were more easily feed into the IPR system.  The purpose of the hierarchy was to provide consistency with the overarching documents, assist staff to create connections to the strategic framework and to assist in senior staff and councillors to better understand the hierarchy of documents coming forward at council meetings.

The project developed templates for a range of documents and provided the tools to ensure the system could be rolled out across the council.
