Following workshops with elected members, Council management and staff, and key external stakeholders, and broader consultation with the community, Council’s Strategic Plan 2019 – 2029 has been finalised.
The Local Government Act 1993 (The Act) requires Council, in consultation with the community, to develop a 10 year strategic plan. The Strategic Plan is one of the most important documents Council produces. It describes how Council will progress towards the longer term requirements of our community and influences our operations, including the way we deliver our services, how we engage with our community and how we govern the organisation. This plan must be reviewed every four years at a minimum to ensure that it continues to address the changing needs of the community.
Copies of the Strategic Plan 2019 – 2029 are available from Council’s Website and the Council Offices.
The Act also requires Council to prepare an Annual Plan and budget that is consistent with the Strategic Plan. Our Annual Plan and budget was passed at the June Council meeting and outlines the activities we will undertake to help us meet the goals and objectives of our Strategic Plan. These activities are reported on in Council’s Annual Report, which provides the community with an opportunity to see how Council is delivering on our strategic objectives.
The plan was endorsed at the June Council meeting.
