Council and Wellbeing Plan

Council and Wellbeing Plan front cover

The Council and Wellbeing Plan 2021 - 2025, developed by our Councillors, was informed by extensive consultation with the local community.

Councillors carefully considered all feedback gathered in our wide-ranging community engagement process - Imagine Peninsula 2040, as well as the finalised Community Vision and principles presented by our Imagine 2040 Citizens’ Panel.

We heard from 3,600 people from all over the Peninsula, including our Citizens’ Panel - a group of 36 community members who were independently and randomly selected.

Council also worked with many stakeholder groups in relation to the wellbeing components of the Council and Wellbeing Plan.

The thoughts and ideas of our community, gathered in this process, have informed the Council and Wellbeing Plan, which outlines how Council will work toward fulfilling our community’s vision for 2040.

The development of this Plan also, for the first time, brings together the Council Plan and Health and Wellbeing Plan, reflecting the importance of health and wellbeing in everything we deliver for our community.

The Plan is set out under three themes:

  • a healthy natural environment and well-planned townships
  • a robust, innovative and diverse economy
  • a flourishing, healthy and connected community

The Shire will be establishing a new Citizens’ Panel every year to review our progress on the Council and Wellbeing Plan.

Council will keep the community updated on the progress of the plan through regular quarterly and annual reports, published on our website.
