Community Plans are effective tools for capturing and prioritising the aspirations of communities and providing a 'roadmap' for how to get there. Developing a Community Plan is a comprehensive exercise that covers a broad range of community goals and issues. The process is led by the community, but Council's Community Team provide support throughout the development and implementation phases, and offer advice as to what needs to be done, and when.
This Plan outlines the goals of the community. The Plan helps everybody to see their part, and collective community energy can be harnessed to protect the things they treasure. It gives strength to those who undertake, and advocate for, projects that increase wellbeing and enhance the local environment.
