Our plan for improvements and upgrades in Randwick City
Our Community Our Future (OCOF) is Randwick City Council's plan for the future; how we will continue to provide you with great services and facilities and deliver exciting new projects.
OCOF commenced in July 2018 and will provide $19M funding for a wide range of improvement projects and upgrades across Randwick City expected to be complete by 2025.
How is it funded?
Our Community Our Future is funded through a Special Rate Variation (SRV) paid by each ratepayer in Randwick City. The SRV applies across three financial years (2018-19, 2019-20 and 2020-21).
The SRV was approved by the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal in May 2018 following significant community consultation with local residents in late 2017 and early 2018.
For the average residential ratepayer paying about $1,200 a year in rates, the cost of the SRV is about an extra $68 per year to fund the Our Community Our Future projects.
Council consulted with the community between 1 December 2017 and 1 February 2018. This timing was to meet IPART’s requirements. An information pack was sent to every ratepayer with the opportunity to provide feedback via a survey or through information sessions and workshops.
