Our Community Vision

We are a prosperous, diverse and sustainable community, built on a deep sense of trust, care and commitment for each other and our environment.

Key Strategic Themes

The following themes were developed through extensive community consultation held during 2016-2017 with each theme assisting Council, the community and key stakeholders to work and focus together to achieve our vision for the future:

  1. Our Community
  2. Our Environment
  3. Our Economy
  4. Our Infrastructure
  5. Our Civic Leadership

Underlying each theme there are goals, strategies and actions which are supported by measures whereby the progress of each action can be reported to the community. The goals, strategies and actions reflect what the community told Council about their main concerns and priorities for the future. They also reflect Council's priorities based on knowledge about our future, our present and our history.
