Every Council-owned facility or asset, such as a road, building or park, is given a ‘star rating’ on a scale of 1 to 5, according to its significance.
The star rating of the facility helps us to prioritise maintenance and is defined by factors such as profile, usage, value and risk. Busy streets in the CBD would have a higher star rating than quiet suburban streets because they are used by more people and are in a high profile area. The more users potentially affected, the higher the star rating would be for that asset.
Inspections of 5-star assets would be undertaken more frequently and they would receive higher levels of maintenance. The majority of Council’s assets are considered to be 3-star rated.
the standard and finish of facilities and play equipment. the level of preventative maintenance performed on each asset. the response times when failures occur. The map below shows current star ratings for all roads and parks within the Cairns region.
