The Council Plan is the key document that each new Council must develop to determine its key goals and priorities over the next four years.
We will develop our Council Plan and Community Vision in accordance with deliberative engagement practices and community engagement principles, as required in the Local Government Act 2020.
At a critical time of transition, especially in light of the 2020 summer bushfires and COVID-19 pandemic, the Council Plan is an opportunity for us to engage with our community in a conversation about our shared vision and priorities for the future.
Over the next few months, we want to hear from as many of you as possible about how you would like to see our Shire evolve over the next decade and beyond, but also what you want us to focus on over the next four years.
There will be many opportunities for you to get involved to ensure your voice is heard. We’ll be hosting community drop in sessions, pop-ups and taking it to the streets to ask you what matters most. (Subject to COVID-19 restrictions at the time)
Right now you can share your thoughts and ideas for both the Community Vision and Council Plan priorities by completing this form.
You'll also find more details about the engagement process as well as links to documents that you may find useful, including the existing Council Plan 2017-2021.
