Strategic Planning

Our consultants UHY Haines Norton facilitated a series of workshops with elected members and staff last Tuesday and Wednesday using the information gathered from the surveys. These workshops were to identify strategies and performance indicators to achieve the local community objectives (Local Strategic Community Plan). This information will be used to define the communities; vision and aspirations, objectives and strategies. The community feedback will be integrated into a Strategic Community Plan which is expected to be finalised by end of June 2012

The Strategic Community Plan and Corporate Business Plan are intended to drive the development of the annual budget and will become the Shire’s principal strategic documents demonstrating measurable linkages between community aspirations, financial capacity and practical service delivery. The 10+ year
Strategic Community Plan and Corporate Business Plan will deliver the following outcomes:

  • a long term strategic community plan that links community aspirations with the council’s vision;
  • a corporate business plan that integrates resourcing plans with the strategic community plan; and
  • a vision for the future viability of the local government area linked to the annual budget

A draft Strategic Community Plan will be available for public comment by the end of June 2012.
