What is a Community Strategic Plan?

    The Community Strategic Plan sits above all other Council plans and strategies. It is the Council’s highest level plan, prepared on behalf of and in consultation with the community.

    It identifies the community’s main priorities and aspirations for the future, and sets out strategies for achieving these goals.

    Why is the Community Strategic Plan being reviewed?

    It is a requirement under the Local Government Act 1993 (s402) that every 4 years, following a Council election, Council must review the Community Strategic Plan. Any changes to the Community Strategic Plan must be endorsed by the Council by 30 June 2025.

    When will I get to see the revised Community Strategic Plan?

    The draft updated revised plan will be on public exhibition during April – May 2025. During this time, all members of our community will be able to submit feedback which will be taken into consideration when confirming the final Community Strategic Plan.
