Community Strategic Plan
The Community Strategic Plan is the highest level plan that a council and its community will prepare.
Its purpose is to identify the community's main priorities and aspirations for the future and to plan strategies for achieving these goals. In doing this, the planning process considers the issues and pressures that may affect the community and the level of resources that will realistically be available to achieve its aspirations.
While Council has a custodial role in initiating, preparing and maintaining the plan on behalf of the community, it is not wholly responsible for its implementation. Other partners, such as State Agencies and community groups are also responsible for the delivery of the plan. The aim of the plan is to encourage council, the community and other agencies to work together as one community to deliver on our vision for the future.

To guide this process, Council has developed a Community Engagement Strategy to outline when and how Council will have this important conversation with the community.
A set of key community indicators have been developed to monitor the progress of the Community Strategic Plan, which Council will track and report on in four years’ time.
