“The cor­po­rate plan aims to achieve the vi­sion and out­comes for our re­gion and is in­formed by a range of key strate­gic plans, both in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal to coun­cil,” Cr Cham­bers said.

“Ba­si­cally, it keeps us ac­count­able, and that is ex­tremely im­por­tant to us as a coun­cil.”

Cr Cham­bers urged com­mu­nity mem­bers to have their say.

“The cor­po­rate plan de­fines the goals and am­bi­tions of our coun­cil over the next five years, com­mu­nity com­ments and in­put is not only wel­come but es­sen­tial feed­back for coun­cil,” Cr Cham­bers said.

The draft cor­po­rate plan out­lines coun­cil’s aims in re­gards to job growth, em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties, im­prov­ing road in­fra­struc­ture and en­sur­ing health and ed­u­ca­tion is ad­dressed.
