Strategic Plan: Looking to the Horizon 2014-2018

Consultation has concluded

The 'Looking to the Horizon: Strategic Plan 2014-2018' plans ahead for the four year term of our new Council. It sets priorities for delivering services to the community and maintaining infrastructure. Each section of the Plan sets goals for short term achievement as well as proposes some project ideas to benefit the community, planned out over the longer term for sensible budget management.

While planning must be done within a local context there are regional and state-wide influences to be considered. The Plan aims to align with higher level strategic plans in a planned and financially conscious manner.

Have we got our priorities right? We are seeking your help to ensure that the Plan provides real guidance in developing our Annual Business Plans over the next four years to sustainably deliver on priorities and realise the ambitions of the community.

    by M. Robertson, almost 2 years ago
    CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

    Council has given consideration to the submissions received from the public consultation on the draft Strategic Plan that ended on 1st May 2015.

    A total of 70 people accessed information by either logging on to the “Your Say Yankalilla” consultation website or attending the two public forums held at the Council Chambers and fifteen people contributed their views.

    Many of the comments made were linked to other strategic documents such as the Annual Business Plan, Long Term Financial Plan, Asset Management Plan and Strategic Directions Report. The various processes associated with these documents will give additional opportunities for those ideas and suggestions to be considered at another time.

    A number of key issues were raised and in response eleven amendments were made to the draft Plan to help finalise the Strategic Plan 2014-2018.

    The final Plan was adopted by Council on 16 June 2015.
