An Asset Plan is developed to ensure that the public's assets are properly maintained now and into the future. It is a proactive approach combining the management of public assets with financial, engineering and technical considerations to ensure an appropriate level of services is provided at the most economical cost to the community. The Asset Plan will guide the way Council protects public assets to lengthen their lifespan and to ensure replacement, upgrade or renewal of all assets is undertaken and completed in the appropriate time.
Hobsons Bay City Council manages $1.1 billion of infrastructure assets ranging from buildings, road and storm water drainage, seawalls, playgrounds, and sporting grounds through to speed humps, park seating, rubbish bins and water fountains.
Council is seeking 25 representatives to get involved in the Asset Plan Focus Group.
The Asset Plan Focus Group will attend three workshops in September.
Feedback from the focus group will be used to:
- inform the intervention levels that triggers Council undertaking works to renew an asset
- assist in the development of an action plan that will inform the 10-year maintenance and capital renewal of the assets
- help shape the overarching Asset Plan.
The Asset Plan Focus Group is now meeting. Members of the Asset Plan Focus Group please click here to access further information.
