The Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) Board, creates a Strategic Plan for their term of office. Aligning projects with a strategic plan and other planning documents, and keeping in mind current economic conditions and challenges faced by the Sunshine Coast community, the Board’s goal is to keep services affordable and taxes as low as possible when reviewing the budget.

Financial Plan Reports

Each year, the SCRD Board updates a Financial Plan. This process requires that all services and funding levels be thoroughly reviewed by the SCRD Board to ensure public funding is allocated efficiently, effectively, and with accountability. The process also requires public consultation, which is achieved through open committee meetings and public information sessions. The Financial Plan content and process is a requirement for all local governments under the Local Government Act.
