Have your say.. Community Workshops coming up!

The Shire is inviting community members to contribute to a review of the Strategic Community Plan by completing a survey and/or attending community workshops to be held in early May.

This is a great opportunity for residents to have input into the future direction of the Shire.  The Strategic Community Plan provides a long term (10+ years) plan for the Shire, expressing the vision, aspirations and priorities of the community.  It is the Shire’s principal strategy document, influencing all other planning and decision making at the Shire.
