 Community Strategic Plan - Our Shire, Our Future 

The community's long term vision and plan for our future.

Our Shire, Our Future - Our Guide for Shaping the Shire to 2030 is a community plan developed by council with significant community input.  It has been implemented in partnership with the community and other agencies. It identifies the long term aspirations for the Shire. We can then monitor and report on  how goals are met.

Take a look at The Community Strategic Plan to see what our community is aiming for.

You can also see the issues raised by and discussed amongst the community in our last review which took place in 2011.

Delivery Program

Council's projects and services planned for 2013-2017.

Our focus is on ensuring that through our actions, we work towards our community's vision for the future. Our Delivery Program and Operational Plan set out what we will be doing over the four year period and the year ahead respectively. This program also specifies how council's progress and performance will be measured, then informs how council will deliver specific functions.

For 2016/17, the Delivery Program 2013/14 - 2016/17 incorporating Operational Plan 2016/17 was combined into one document.
