Executive SummaryThis asset management strategy is prepared to assist council is improving the way it delivers servicesfrom infrastructure including bridges, buildings, open space, plant, roads, footpaths, andstormwater. These infrastructure assets have a replacement value of approximately 145 million.The asset management strategy is to enable Council to show: how its asset portfolio will meet the service delivery needs of its community into the future, enable Council’s asset management policies to be achieved, and ensure the integration of Council’s asset management with its long-term strategic plan.1Adopting this asset management strategy will assist council in meeting the requirements of nationalsustainability frameworks, the Local Government Act 1993 and providing services needed by thecommunity in a financially sustainable manner.The asset management strategy is prepared following a review of the council’s service deliverypractices, financial sustainability indicators, asset management maturity and fit with council’s visionfor the future outlined in the West Coast Council Community Plan 2025 (As revised). The strategyoutlines an asset management improvement plan detailing a program of tasks to be completed andresources required to bring council to a minimum ‘core’ level of asset maturity and competence.Strategic Outlook1. Service level expectations are increasing in many areas requiring additional investment andinfrastructure over the medium- to long-term. Examples of this are the intention to move fromopen to piped stormwater, increasingly sealed roads, increases in requirements for footpathquality and increases in desired sport and recreation infrastructure.2. There are increasing statutory requirements, primarily relating to building, safety, andenvironmental standards that will necessitate increases in infrastructure in some asset classes(for example in waste areas and building compliance improvements).3. The funding for new and improved infrastructure will come from a mixture of Council allocationsand external grant funding.4. In accordance with the Long-term Financial Plan Council intends to no raise rates at levelssignificantly above relevant indexes and therefore cannot absorb the cost of increasedinfrastructure.5. Assets and services in some areas will need to be reduced to offset the increases identifiedabove while aligning with Council’s Long-term Financial plan of not increasing rates at levelssignificantly above relevant indexes.1LGPMC, 2009, Framework 2 Asset Planning and Management, p 4.West Coast Council Asset Management StrategyPage 1

1.0INTRODUCTIONAssets deliver important services to communities. A key issue facing local governments throughoutAustralia is the management of ageing assets in need of renewal and replacement.Infrastructure assets such as roads, drains, bridges, water and sewerage and public buildings presentchallenges. Their condition and longevity can be difficult to determine. Financing needs can belarge, requiring planning for large peaks and troughs in expenditure for renewing and replacing suchassets. The demand for new and improved services adds to the planning and financing complexity.2The creation of new assets also presents challenges in funding the ongoing operating andreplacement costs necessary to provide the needed service over the assets’ full life cycle.3 This isparticularly of concern on the West Coast where there are significant new assets being created (forexample MTB trails, gyms, and sealed roads).The national frameworks on asset planning and management and financial planning and reportingendorsed by the Local Government and Planning Ministers’ Council (LGPMC) require councils toadopt a longer-term approach to service delivery and funding comprising: A strategic longer-term plan covering, as a minimum, the term of office of the councillors and:o bringing together asset management and long-term financial plans,o demonstrating how council intends to resource the plan, ando consulting with communities on the plan Annual budget showing the connection to the strategic objectives, and Annual report with:o explanation to the community on variations between the budget and actual results,o any impact of such variances on the strategic longer-term plan,o report of operations with review on the performance of the council against strategicobjectives.4Framework 2 Asset Planning and Management has seven elements to assist in highlighting keymanagement issues, promote prudent, transparent, and accountable management of localgovernment assets and introduce a strategic approach to meet current and emerging challenges. Asset management policy, Strategy and planning,o asset management strategy,o asset management plan, Governance and management arrangements, Defining levels of service, Data and systems, Skills and processes, and Evaluation.52LGPMC, 2009, Framework 2 Asset Planning and Management, p 2.LGPMC, 2009, Framework 3 Financial Planning and Reporting, pp 2-3.4LGPMC, 2009, Framework 3 Financial Planning and Reporting, pp 4-5.3West Coast Council Asset Management StrategyPage 4

The asset management strategy is to enable Council to show: how its asset portfolio will meet the service delivery needs of its community into the future, to enable Council’s asset management policies to be achieved, and to ensure the integration of Council’s asset management with its long-term strategic plan.6The goal of asset management is to ensure that services are provided: in the most cost-effective manner, through the creation, acquisition, maintenance, operation, rehabilitation, and disposal of assets, for present and future consumers.The objective of the Asset Management Strategy is to establish a framework to guide the planning,construction, maintenance, and operation of the infrastructure essential for council to provideservices to the community.1.1.Legal ContextThe Local Government Act 1993 – Section 70D states that:1. A council is to prepare an asset management strategy for the municipal area.2. An asset management strategy for a municipal area is to –a. be consistent with the strategic plan for the municipal area; andb. contain at least the matters that are specified in an order made under section 70F (of theLocal Government Act 199) as required to be included in an asset management strategy.56LGPMC, 2009, Framework 2 Asset Planning and Management, p 4.LGPMC, 2009, Framework 2 Asset Planning and Management, p 4.West Coast Council Asset Management StrategyPage 5

1.2Asset Management Planning ProcessAsset management planning is a comprehensive process to ensure that assets are managed andmaintained in a way that enables affordable services from infrastructure to be provided in aneconomically optimal way. In turn, affordable service levels can only be determined by assessingCouncil’s financially sustainability under scenarios with different proposed service levels.Asset management planning commences with defining stakeholder and legal requirements andneeds, incorporating these needs into the organisation’s strategic plan, developing an assetmanagement policy, strategy, asset management plan and operational plans, linked to a long-termfinancial plan with a funding plan.7Asset Management Planning ProcessOrganisational Strategic PlanStrategicPlanningLegal and Stakeholder Requirementsand ExpectationsVision, Mission, Goals & Objectives,Levels of Service, Business Policies, RiskASSET MANAGEMENT POLICYASSET MANAGEMENT STRATEGYASSET MANAGEMENT PLANSTacticalPlanningObjectives, level of service target and plansServices & service levels to be provided,funds required to provide servicesServiceDeliveryOPERATIONAL PLANSService delivery in accordance with assetmanagement plansAsset solutions – operate, maintain, renew,enhance, retireNon-asset solutions – partnerships, demandmanagement, insurance, failure managementKnowledgeKNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENTOperationalPlanningASSET MANAGEMENT PLANNINGAssetManagementPhilosophy &FrameworkAsset data and information systemsFor some assets Council will manage assets using a specific strategy.
