Com­mu­ni­ca­tion a pri­or­ity

Midland Reporter - - News -

BET­TER com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween the coun­cil and res­i­dents is a pri­or­ity in a new com­mu­nity plan adopted by the Kala­munda coun­cil last month.

Coun­cil­lors ap­proved the doc­u­ment ‘Kala­munda Ad­vanc­ing 2027’, with other key projects in­clud­ing build­ing shared path­ways, im­prov­ing road net­works, recre­ation and com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties.

A re­view of the Lo­cal Plan­ning Scheme is pro­posed to sim­plify the plan­ning process.

The plan also re­news the coun­cil’s com­mit­ment to care for the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment and work with the com­mu­nity to sup­port the ru­ral sec­tor.

Pres­i­dent An­drew Wad­dell said Kala­munda was a vi­brant com­mu­nity of many life­styles and no longer a quiet town on the edge of Perth.

“Based on com­mu­nity feed­back, our fo­cuses con­tinue to be the de­liv­ery of our com­mit­ment to con­nect­ing com­mu­ni­ties, pre­serv­ing our unique en­vi­ron­ment, ad­vo­cat­ing to dif­fer­ent lev­els of gov­ern­ment, and de­liv­er­ing high-qual­ity, value-for-money ser­vices to the com­mu­nity,” he said.

The Strate­gic Com­mu­nity Plan is the high­est-level plan pre­pared by the coun­cil to doc­u­ment com­mu­nity pri­or­i­ties over the next decade and the frame­work to be used to sup­port busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties and fu­ture plan­ning.
