Integrated Strategic Planning

A mandatory integrated planning and reporting framework for Western Australian Local Government was introduced by the WA State Government in June 2013. In line with the framework, we have prepared and adopted plans to better plan for our future.  The following documents are available for downloading on the website under Publications.

Community Strategic Plan 2033

The Community Strategic Plan 2033 represents our new approach to planning for the future for our shire. It builds on our past strategic planning work, addresses the challenges we face and sets out what actions we will take in the next 20 years to work towards achieving the community’s vision.

This plan has been developed through engaging our communities using a number of strategies including community surveys, community forums and community feedback as well as planning under the SuperTowns initiative. The Community Strategic Plan presents our community’s vision for the future and states the actions we need to take to achieve our vision.
