Council Plan 2017-2021

The Council is committed to setting a strategic direction that will deliver key sustainable outcomes for the community. 

The Council Plan 2017-2021 sits within the Council’s planning framework and identifies the main priorities and expectations for the next four years. The Council Plan has taken into account where the Shire is currently situated in relation to the 2041 journey and what needs to be undertaken in the coming four-year period to remain on track.

On an annual basis the Council Plan will be reviewed to take into account any future developments and direction of Council.
