Thank you for your participation

You have helped us plan for a better City of PAE. Below is the outcome of our community engagement between 26 April - 25 May 2022.

Annual Business Plan 2022-2023

  • Our Elected Members have reviewed all the contributions we received. They have now adopted the plan as drafted. Meanwhile, we have referred any feedback that requires further investigation or consideration for immediate action. Alternatively, where appropriate, we have used such feedback to inform our ongoing planning and budgeting.


As we continue our community-led recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, we will deliver projects and services to help our community to connect, heal and thrive. An average rate increase of 3.95% will harness new opportunities and growth, while recognising the cost of living pressures on our community. This is significantly lower than March 2022 CPI (4.7%) and represents an average increase of $33 per year per household. During 2022-23 we will:
  • Complete Design of the Aboriginal Cultural Centre
  • Continue our adaptation to climate change through our Living Environment Strategy to green our City, lower our emissions, and protect our coast and landscape
  • Upgrade change rooms at Greenacres, T K Shutter and Gepps Cross Reserves to modernise and make them more accessible
  • Celebrate and enjoy the Port River with the inaugural three-day Port River Sports Festival featuring sports, performance, culture and food
  • Complete master plans for upcoming redevelopment projects at the Semaphore Foreshore and E P Nazer Reserve
  • Deliver eight playground upgrades across the City including Dover Street Reserve (Blair Athol) and Polonia Reserve (Croydon Park)
  • Deliver $64.2 million of infrastructure works to improve our streetscapes, community facilities, roads, drainage, parks and reserves

This budget will enable us to maintain our existing $1.7 billion of infrastructure and deliver services that are both sustainable and in line with our community’s needs and expectations.

Rates At Work

Council needs to think more broadly about the impact of infill development in areas like Queenstown. Moving from low density to medium.
