Strategic Community Plan - 2021 Major Review

How do you imagine our community’s future?

2021 is a busy year for the Shire’s Administration with the Strategic Community Plan (SCP) up for a major review mid-year. Additionally the Long Term Financial (LTFP), Asset Management (AMP) and Workforce Plans (WFP) also require reviewing this year. 

The SCP is a major component of the Shire of Gingin’s Integrated Planning & Reporting Suite (IPR Suite) together with the Corporate Business Plan (CBP) and Annual Budget. Under the Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996 each WA local government is required to have these documents and to review them regularly. This makes them ‘living’ documents.

The LTFP, AMP & WFP play a major role in the development of the SCP together with feedback from the community about what you feel our Shire’s long term objectives should be. What areas do we want to focus on and continue to grow into the future? Are our objectives realistic? It’s easy to set objectives but do they take into account Shire resources, staff time and how much money the Shire realistically has to spend? Or are our objectives an unrealistic wish list?

It’s important to get this process right in order to have plans for the future that DREAM BIG but are also REALISTIC.

Community Consultation 

Council will commence consultation with the community for the major review of the Strategic Community Plan.

The purpose of this consultation will be to come together as a community to discuss what really matters to us. What areas do we want to focus on? What can we achieve together as a Shire and community taking into account the Shire's resources, staff time and how much money the Shire realistically has to spend? 


These workshops were undertaken in Gingin (22 June), Guilderton (23 June) and Lancelin (24 June).
