Communication a priority
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.
