Draft Council Plan 2017–2021 released for community review

Thank you to all our residents and ratepayers who took the time to respond to Council’s request for ideas and feedback to assist the development of the new Council Plan for the next four years.

Council received more than 350 survey responses by the end of February, supplemented with ‘focus-group’ style feedback gathered during the Community Summit. In addition, we received 262 worksheet submissions from local primary school students, and the Children’s Summit held in February also provided valuable and creative ideas. The level of involvement of our younger residents in this consultation process is particularly pleasing.

Your significant feedback has made a major contribution to the drafting of the Council Plan 2017–2021, which is now available for public review.

To read the draft Council Plan, please click here or visit Council’s offices at 50 Learmonth Street, Queenscliff between 9.00am and 4.30pm.

What is the Council Plan?

The Council Plan defines the priorities and guides the direction of Council over their four-year period of office. It is the most important document produced by Council. The Council Plan sets out:

  • What Council wants to achieve over the next four years,
  • Strategies for achieving these objectives,
  • How Council will measure its performance,
  • The resources and funds required to achieve the objectives.
