Major Strategic Review 2016


This is the second strategic review undertaken by the Shire of York. The first was carried out in 2012 and the documents developed at that time can be found here. Since that time the Council has developed the Roads and Bridges Asset Plan and the Buildings and Structures Asset Plan which provide new information about the base level of needed Council expenditure.   These continue to be updated and will be reviewed again as a part of the Major Strategic Review. The Council has recently adopted an Asset Management Policy and has commenced an asset management plan review.

The legislation also requires the Council to undertake a risk assessment process as part of the Strategic Review. The Council has recently adopted a Risk Assessment and Management Policy and will continue to develop this area.
