Proposed 5-year Environmental levy program (2014-19)
The Randwick City Plan reflects the community's aspirations for the future. It is based on the extensive research, input from the ongoing and well thought out community engagement processes that are in place and reflects the changes in community expectations as captured through biennial community surveys. It is also based on the knowledge that Council has about its community and the local area. It reflects NSW 2012, the ten year State Plan, the Metropolitan Plan for Sydney 2036 and other key relevant State and regional plans and integrates with key internal documents such as the new Local Environment Plan and Development Control Plans.
The outcomes and directions in the Randwick City Plan direct the specific strategies that we develop in our Sustaining our City program.
Section 33 of the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act (PPIPA) requires each public sector agency to prepare and implement a Privacy Management Plan.
Randwick Council's Privacy Management Plan incorporates:
- an introduction to the Act and to personal information;
- details about personal information held by Council;
- the information protection principles as set out in the relevant legislation;
- a list of Public Registers held by Council and specific purposes relating to their use;
- procedures that Council will use for internal review of privacy complaints; and
- the role of Council's Privacy Contact Officers.
Randwick Council's Privacy Management Plan was adopted at the 12 December 2006 Council Meeting and is available for viewing and downloading by clicking on this link: Privacy Management Plan (pdf 318 kb).
The Randwick City Council Equity and Diversity Management Plan is an integral component of Council's commitment to establishing and maintaining employment equity and a working environment free of discrimination. The Equity and Diversity Management Plan complements our Management Plan and outlines our strategies to achieve equity.
Both Federal and State legislation define the Council's obligations. The Local Government Act 1993 requires Councils to prepare and implement an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Management Plan which will:
- Eliminate and ensure the absence of discrimination on the grounds covered by the Act
- Promote equal employment opportunities for identified groups.
Charter of Public Service in a Culturally Diverse Society
Our Equity and Diversity Management Plan has been developed based on the seven best practice principles defined in the Commonwealth's Charter of Public Service in a Culturally Diverse Society. The principles as stated in the Charter are:
Government services should be available to everyone who is entitled to them and should be free of any form of discrimination on the basis of a person's country of birth, language, cultural race or religion.
Government services should be developed and delivered on the basis of fair treatment of clients who are eligible to receive them.
Government service providers should use strategies to inform eligible clients of services and their entitlements and how they can obtain them. Providers should also consult with their clients regularly about the adequacy, design and standard of government services.
Government services should be sensitive to the needs and requirements of clients from diverse language and cultural backgrounds, and responsive as far as practicable to the particular circumstances of individuals.
Government service providers should be results oriented focused on meeting the needs of clients from all backgrounds.
Government service providers should optimise the use of available public resources through a user responsive approach to service delivery, which meets client needs.
Government service providers should have a reporting mechanism in place, which ensures they are accountable for implementing Charter objectives for clients.
Equity and Diversity Committee
While the General Manager is responsible for compliance with all statutory responsibilities and for the adoption of diversity management practices, the Equity and Diversity Committee has been established to provide strategic and practical advice on equity and diversity matters to the General Manager, community and our staff. The Committee will provide support through:
- Fostering a culture that values and responds to the diversity of the community and our staff
- Development and championing of the Council's EEO and Diversity Management Plans
- Identification and recommendation of options for the elimination of discriminating practices
- Leads the organisation through change by capitalising on the diversity of our workforce.
Randwick City Council Equal Employment Opportunity Policy: summary statement
Randwick City Council is committed to the principles of Equal Employment Opportunity and creating an equitable work environment. This is supported by our commitment to:
- the application of statutory requirements and related policies
- the implementation of Council's EEO Management Plan.
We are committed to fostering a culture that values and responds to the diversity of our staff and community together with the identification and implementation of proactive options for the elimination of discriminating practices.
In fulfilling this policy the Council aims to eliminate and ensure the absence of direct, systemic and indirect discrimination on the grounds of:
- Transgender status
- Marital status
- Carers responsibilities
- Race, ethnic or ethno-religious background, decent or nationality
- HIV/AIDS status.
The policy also seeks to establish an equitable working environment in relation to:
- Access to services and information

Structure of the Equity and Diversity Plan
The Equity and Diversity Plan has been developed with reference to current demographics and business directions of Council. The plan outlines objectives, strategies and performance indicators together with the departments responsible for the achievement of our goals.
The Equity and Diversity Plan spans a three-year period from 2001 to 2003 and will be reviewed in line with the review process outlined in Council's Management Plan. Following the annual review an Equity and Diversity Management Plan report will be produced assessing the progress of the objectives of the Plan and make recommendations to address any issues identified.
The objectives of the Equity and Diversity Management Plan will be allocated to areas of responsibility through the Operational Plans that form part of the Management Planning structure. This will ensure that the Equity and Diversity Management Plan continues to support the business directives of the Council.
Asset Management Plans promote management of infrastructure assets over the lifecycle of the asset in the most cost-effective manner to provide a specified level of service.
The Road Pavement Asset Management Plan has been prepared and adopted by Council, and plans for other assets are in preparation.
Road Pavement Asset Management Plan
The Road Pavement Asset Management Plan documents Council's current road pavement asset management practices and strategies, identifies deficiencies, recommends areas for progressive improvement and models the most appropriate management of Council's road pavement assets into the future.

The Pesticides Use Notification Plan is based on the principle that people have the right to know when pesticides are used in public places so they can then make informed choices about their exposure to pesticides. The Plan describes how Council will notify the community when Council or its contractors use pesticides in Council controlled public places.
Pesticide Use Notification Plan (pdf 170 kb)
This Plan is line with recent changes to the State Government's Pesticides Regulation 1995. For information on the new law for notifying the community when public authorities use pesticides in public places go to:
