Community Strategic Plan
The Community Strategic Plan is the highest-level plan that Council prepares. The purpose of the Community Strategic Plan is to identify our 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 impact the community and the level of resources that will realistically be available to achieve its aspirations.
Informed by extensive community and stakeholder consultation, the Edward River 2030 Community Strategic Plan seeks to answer four key questions:
- Where are we now?
- Where do we want to be in 10 years' time?
- How will we get there?
- How will we know when we have arrived?
At an operational level, the Community Strategic Plan is implemented through Council's Delivery Program and annual Operational Plans, which outline the activities and actions that are the responsibility of Council in achieving our shared vision.
