Our Advocacy Action Plan provides a guide to address some issues that are beyond the capacity of Indigo Shire Council, working alone, to find solutions for.
As a small rural Council, we need to work in partnership with and advocate to a range of stakeholders and other levels of government to deliver on community expectations and priorities.
Advocating on issues, priorities and needs that matter to our community is identified in the Council Plan as Strategic Objective 5.2. Developing a new Advocacy Action Plan and reporting to the community quarterly on progress is a key deliverable.
Our advocacy efforts will include direct lobbying of decision-makers, writing submissions to federal and state governments; ongoing community consultation and engagement and public campaigns.
This action plan has the following objectives:
Our action plan is also the basis for prioritising projects and funding bids, especially when new funding programs are announced by State and Federal Governments.
Council adopted the latest Advocacy Action Plan on 27 September, 2022.
