Alpine Shire Council draft Plans – August 2021

Alpine Shire Council has prepared a draft Community Vision, Council Plan and Financial Plan, and are keen to know if the draft documents meet the needs of our community.

These key strategic plans provide medium and long-term strategic guidance for Council and have been developed following deliberative engagement with Council’s Community Panel.

If you would like to share your views on these key documents, please take some time to read them and make a submission by 3pm Thursday, 9 September 2021.

Your voice is important – please help us ensure these plans are reflective of community needs and aspirations.

Draft Community Vision 2040 and Council Plan 2021-2025 incorporating the Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan

The Draft Community Vision 2040 describes the community’s aspirations for the future of the Alpine Shire, through to the year 2040.  These aspirations feed into the Draft Council Plan 2021-2025, which documents the strategic drivers, objectives, indicators and major initiatives that Council will implement over the next four years.  The Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan is incorporated into the Council Plan.

Draft Financial Plan 2030/31

The Draft Financial Plan documents the financial resources required for Council to give effect to the Draft Community Vision and Council Plan.  It includes information about the decisions and assumptions that underpin the forecasts in the financial statements.

Please think about the following five questions as you review the documents…

  1.  What do you like about the draft Community Vision?
  2. How could the draft Community Vision be improved?
  3. What aspects of the draft Council Plan incorpating the Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan do you support?
