The Strategic Community Plan 2040 details the community’s vision for our local government area.  

About the plan

The Plan builds on past strategic planning, details the challenges we face, and sets the goal areas where the organisation will deliver. 

This document has been developed with input from more than 1,570 community members and key partners to describe where we want to be in 20 years and how we will get there.

Following is an excerpt from the plan. The full plan can be downloaded below.
