Have Your Say Council Plan 2021 - 2025

Website Council Plan Graphic

You are invited to have your say on the priorities for the Southern Grampians Shire Council Plan 2021-2025.

Council is required to prepare and adopt a Council Plan every four years. It’s an important document that outlines the vision for the four year term of the Council and includes the objectives, strategies and actions which need to be implemented and undertaken to ensure this vision is realised.

The 2021-2025 Council Plan will be guided by the work already undertaken in the development of the 2041 community vision framework, which is the longer term strategic plan for the next 20 years.

Community members are invited to contribute their ideas to the 2021-2025 Council Plan and can participate in the planning process in a number of ways including joining virtual sessions, filling in postcards and submitting online forms.

Face-to-face gatherings have also been planned, with every township having the opportunity to meet the Mayor, CEO and Councillors to share their vision for the next four years.

*Virtual sessions will be held on the Council Facebook Page.
