Capital Works Program

As part of the annual budget, expenditure related to Council-owned and managed assets is called the Capital Works Program.

The Capital Works Program is made up of infrastructure, property, plant & equipment-related projects.

We prioritise projects based on community need and Council’s Asset Management Strategy.

These projects can be classed as:

  • renewal
  • upgrade
  • expansion
  • new acquisition
