The consultation for the Annual Business Plan has concluded. Thank you to all for your feedback.

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback as part of our Draft Annual Business Plan 2020-21 consultation.

Your comments are being reviewed and considered by the project team and Council and we will report back soon on the outcomes.

Background

Our Draft ABP 2020-21 outlines how we plan to achieve our goals over the next financial year.

These goals are linked directly to a number of plans and strategies, including our Strategic Plan 2020-24 – A Brighter Future, which was developed in close consultation with our community.

Our Draft ABP meets the requirements of the Local Government Act 1999, and provides our community with important information about the year’s proposed programs, projects and services and how we plan to fund them.

    I understand that AHC is intending to raise the quantum of rates charged to each property by 2.9%. Given that most of the Local Council areas hare going to forgo any increase this year, can you advise the rationale for this increase? It is particularly irksome in the context of the recent survey about LGA boundary changes as they impact residents close to the edge of AHC and Campbelltown.

    Thank you for getting in touch with your question.

    The rate proposed in our Draft Annual Business Plan 2020-21 is a general rate increase of 2.95%, which will allow us to maintain financial sustainability as well as fund our initiatives to support businesses and community members who have been impacted by the Cudlee Creek bushfire and COVID-19.

    For a residential property of average value, this equates to an increase of approximately $59 across the 2020-21 year. (Rate increases may vary from the average where there has been new development, capital improvements or significant changes to the value of the property.)

    Rates revenue accounts for 85% of our Council’s operating income (with grants, fees and charges making up the majority of our remaining operating income).

    Anyone concerned about payment of their rates is encouraged to contact Council so we can discuss individual circumstances and provide help that is most suited to your needs. Please email mail@ahc.sa.gov.au or call 8408 0400. Your request will be registered in our system and a member of our rates team will get in touch with you as soon as possible.

    Why are council owned sporting grounds locked and therefore unaccessible to rate payers within the Adelaide Hills Council area. Eg tennis courts in Crafers, Equestrian Centre at Mylor etc.

    Deb asked 5 months ago


    Thank you for your enquiry regarding sport & recreation sites in the Adelaide Hills Council region.

    Several court & other organised sport & recreation sites in our region are leased to Clubs for their operation & activity; and while these clubs are encouraged to have some courts available to the public (by either leaving them open, or through a booking system), their lease does not actually require them to do so.  

    If the community are wanting to use one of these sites, they are encouraged to contact the club directly to organise the hire of the site.

    Having said that, Council is currently in the process of reviewing all aspects of recreational facility provision in the Council region; and  we are hoping that increased community access to sites is one of the outcomes.  The document (Community & Recreational Facility Framework) is due for completion expected in late 2021.

    Please feel free to contact our Sport & Recreation Planner, Renee O’Connor (roconnor@ahc.sa.gov.au) if you have any further questions.
