Draft Council Plan 2017-21

Consultation has concluded

The Draft Council Plan 2017-21 is a vital roadmap to set Councils course for the future, provide accountability to the community, direct the organisation and help guide decision making. It also helps us track our performance and meet the legislative requirements set out in the Local Government Act 1989.

Alongside five key goals, the 2017-21 Council Plan sets out how we will deliver and achieve our goals by:

  • Customer Service: putting our customers first in all we do.
  • Community Engagement: making sure we seek the community’s input before we act.
  • Advocacy: speaking up on behalf of our community on issues that matter to you.

Council is keen to receive all comments on the Draft Council Plan, but in particular we'd like your views on Customer Service, Community Engagement and Advocacy.
