About the Plan

Purpose of the Asset Plan

This Asset Plan is a document that communicates the importance and magnitude of the infrastructure assets that Bass Coast Shire Council owns or manages. The document aims to inform the community on how these assets are to be managed, to achieve the Council Plan objectives and align with the Community Vision statement.

Compliance with the Local Government Act 2020 and Regulations

The Local Government Act 2020 and other regulations require councils to record their compliance with Section 92 (the Asset Plan) of the Act by completing the Governance and Management Checklist. This Checklist will continue to be published on our ‘Know Your Council’ website and in Council’s Annual Report. The Checklist helps to maintain transparency and accountability and to reassure the public that their assets are being responsibly managed. In developing this Plan, Council has ensured that the key components of this checklist have been adhered to.

Community Engagement

The Asset Plan sits alongside the Community Vision, Council Plan and Long Term Financial Plan and will demonstrate a consistent message among the four documents.

The Draft Asset Plan was open for public exhibition and community comment from 26 May to 7 June 2022.

We received 7 submissions on the Draft Asset Plan. The responses were consolidated and summarised with proposed responses.

The Bass Coast Asset Plan 2022 was adopted by Council at its meeting on 15 June 2022.
