The Council Plan 2017-2021 has been in operation since 1 July 2017, and was last reviewed in June 2018.
It is a requirement under the Local Government Act Section 125 (7) that ‘at least once in each financial year, a Council must consider whether the current Council Plan requires any adjustment in respect of the remaining period of the Council Plan.' The updated Council Plan includes the following additions and changes:
  1. A new action 1.4.6 Develop a Reconciliation Action Plan
  2. Amendment of item 2.1.5 Develop stage 1 of Chiltern Industrial Land as per the Chiltern Placemaking Report, removing the reference to stage 2.
  3. Amendments to 2.1.6 and 2.1.8 to reflect the Council resolution in December 2018 about the future prioritisation of placemaking projects.
  4. Amend the wording of item 2.3.8 from a “Cycling and Walking Strategy” to a “Trails Strategy” to broaden the scope of the strategy to include horse riding.
  5. Amendments to the timing of actions 1.5.2, 2.1.1, 2.1.4, 2.1.6, 2.1.10, 2.1.12, 2.1.13, 2.2.5, 2.2.7, 3.1.1, 3.2.3, 3.2.4, 4.2.2, 5.2.4, 5.3.1, 5.3.2.
