A quick guide to the DPOP

What is the Delivery Program and Operational Plan?

The four-year Delivery Program and 12-month Operational Plan, also known as the 'D-POP', is Council's guiding document. It involves input from the community, councillors and staff. It looks at priorities in the Community Strategic Plan and decides which activities will receive resources and funding in the coming financial year.

It's where you get to see your rates at work, and the full range of projects and programs happening across the City of Parramatta.

Keeping us on track

There are key themes in the Community Strategic Plan that inform the overall direction of Council's delivery program. They are:

  1. Investment in green initiatives
  2. Traffic and transport
  3. Community services and facilities
  4. Open green and recreation investment
  5. Affordable and diverse housing and accommodation
  6. Equal/fairer distribution of funding and facilities across all wards and strong governance

The Delivery Program and Operational Plan is evidence that Council is bringing about the community's vision.
