Asset Plan

The Central Goldfields Shire Asset Plan 2022-2032 is available for the community to view and become familiar with. It’s an important document which talks about how Council will manage and maintain its assets over the next 10 years.

Council assets include everything from roads, footpaths, bridges, buildings including libraries and public toilets, drainage, playgrounds, picnic tables, lakes, garden beds – just to name a few.

The Plan will continue to develop in the future as the individual asset plans for the sub-areas of the Asset Plans are created.
