Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan

The Strategic Plan is the key Council document – it informs every annual budget, sets Council’s priorities and work loads and forms the basis of all financial plans. Following community meetings in 2019 and written feedback on the draft plan that was created following that feedback, Council's Strategic Plan 2020-2030 was adopted on 17 July 2020.

Comments received throughout the review of the Strategic Plan from the public will also be used to consider projects in the formulation of the Capital Works Plan and Long Term Financial Plan which provide the detail of projects to be undertaken over the next ten years and plan for the funding of such projects. The devleopment of these two strategic planning documents is scheduled to be undertaken between August and November 2020.

Formation of the Strategic Plan

The Strategic Plan is the key Council document – it informs every annual budget, sets Council’s priorities and work loads and forms the basis of all financial plans so feedback from the community is vitally important.

A community survey was conducted throughout July / August 2019 and Council held meetings with our community to discuss the results of this survey and seek further feedback as outlined below:

Meeting notes from those meetings can be accessed by clicking on the relevant meeting listed above and a copy of the presentation provided at those meetings can be accessed here and the full survey results, here.

Council was pleased with the feedback offered from the meetings, in person to Councillors and via email and used this information to develop the draft Strategic Plan which was released for public comment in June-July 2020.
