 Scenic Rim Asset Management Strategy 2014 - 2018

 

Effective asset management is an integral part of how we do business at Scenic Rim Regional Council.  We recognise that effective asset management is fundamental to delivering sustainable services to our community.  Council's Asset Management Plan balances cost, risk and performance to achieve best value from our assets, both now and into the future.  Council is systematically and consistently optimising our asset management practice across the organisation and our asset management system is consistent with the requirements of ISO 55001 Asset Management – Management Systems.

The Asset Management Strategy 2014 - 2018, CorePlus2018, was developed following a review of Council's Asset Management Policy, and provides the basis for the continuous improvement of Council's asset management practices.

 Scenic Rim Footpath and Bikeways Strategy

 

Council provides a network of almost 70 kilometres of footpaths and bikeways throughout the region.  This strategy outlines the desired strategic outcomes and associated actions to assist in developing an integrated and user-friendly pedestrian and cycle network across the region that supports safe walking and cycling and increased accessibility, while at the same time recognising the need to renew and maintain the current infrastructure that services the urban and semi-urban areas within the region efficiently and sustainably.
