A requirement of the adopted LEAP was to undertake a review of the document on a regular basis to determine whether the Shire and community are progressing towards achieving LEAP objectives.

The review includes the following scope of work:
The revised LEAP document has been initiated by Council for advertising purposes and is available for public comment until 26th June 2014. Following review of submissions the document will be adopted and made available through the website.
