How Do You Imagine Our Community’s Future?

Published on Wednesday, 21 April 2021 at 4:17:14 PM

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, Asset Management and Workforce Plans also require reviewing this year.

Last week we put out a FAQ/Infographic Sheet about the Strategic Community Plan on our Facebook page and website. This week we have a video to help explain things further.


Well the plans each form a major component of the Shire of Gingin’s Integrated Planning & Reporting Suite (IPR Suite). 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.

To create the SCP Council needs your feedback! In a few months’ time Council will seek 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 .

The above is the first of 4 x videos (together with Infographics/FAQ sheets) that the Shire will be putting out in the coming weeks for public viewing. This FAQ video and last week's FAQ/Infographic sheet specifically look at the SCP and they both explain other considerations and processes that need to be included in the development of the Plan. Keep a look out for the roll-out of more information in the coming weeks -
