How Do You Imagine Our Community’s Future?

Published on Thursday, 20 May 2021 at 1:26:07 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.

Never heard of these Plans?

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 June 2021 Council will be seeking feedback 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.

How do you imagine our community’s future?

How to Have Your Say

Feedback will be sought via a public survey (link to be posted in the near future) and through a series of workshops from 22-24 June in GinginGuilderton and Lancelin.

The following is the 2nd and 3rd of 4 x Infographics/Fact Asked Questions sheets and videos that the Shire is putting out for public viewing (view the others here). These FAQ sheets and videos (coming shortly) specifically look at the Shire’s Asset Management Plan and Long Term Financial Plans and they explain other considerations and processes that need to be included in the development of these Plans.
