Our plan for the future

1. Strategic Community Plan

The Strategic Community Plan 2022-2032 is the overarching strategy and planning document that reflects our community’s long-term vision, aspirations and priorities.

2. Strategic Framework

The Town endeavours to undertake its work using a carefully crafted and best-practise strategic framework. This strategic direction is broad and varied, includes extensive and ongoing local community engagement and is ultimately set by our locally appointed elected members. Our strategic framework is complex and interlinked but follows a clear hierarchy. 

The Strategic Community Plan is the overarching strategy and planning document that reflects our community’s long-term vision, aspirations and priorities.

To achieve our vision, the SCP is delivered through a framework of supporting plans and strategies, including:

Corporate Business Plan

The Corporate Business Plan outlines the projects and services that the Town will deliver over a five-year period to help achieve the objectives of the Strategic Community Plan.

Long Term Financial Plan

The Long Term Financial Plan sets out the funding required to deliver the Town’s strategic programs and ongoing services, prioritised and timed according to the Town’s financial outlook.

Place Plans

The Town's Place Plans pull together all of the work and projects identified to be delivered in each of the Town's 10 neighbourhoods over the coming four years.

Informing Strategies and Strategic Programs of Work

To deliver the Strategic Community Plan, the Town has a series of detailed strategies on a range of topics including transport, economic development, events, public places and more.
