What's the Strategic Community Plan (SCP)?

The Strategic Community Plan 2021 - 2031 details the Shire’s vision and aspirations for the next decade and will set out the key strategies and actions required to achieve them.

The Shire’s Strategic Community Plan requires valuable input from residents, ratepayers, businesses and community groups and will be undertaking extensive consultation to understand the needs and desires of these important stakeholders.

What stage are we at in the review process?

Broad community feedback was gathered through a survey and interviews during the month of March 2021.  The Consultants used this feedback and other relevant information to develop some findings and recommendations around what the major revision to the SCP should look like.

A snapshot of the community survey results is presented in the Draft SCP.

The Draft Strategic Community Plan (PDF) was adopted by Council at its Meeting held on the 24th June 2021 and is now available for public comment until Friday 16th July 2021.

Why review it?

The development and review of a SCP is a statutory requirement of the State Government’s Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework (External link). The Local Government Act requires the SCP to have a minor review every two years and a full review every four years to ensure its relevance and responsiveness.
