Consultation Status: Submissions closed on Monday, 10 April 2017. 

Submissions on Council’s 2017/18 Annual Plan closed on 10 April 2017, with the submission period having opened on 10 March.

As outlined in the Consultation Document, much of what Council is proposing to do this coming financial year, being 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018, is in line with what it committed to do as part of the 2015-2025 Long Term Plan. However, there were three key topics that Council sought the community's feedback on as part of the consultation on the 2017/18 Annual Plan. These topics were:

  • Shared Pathways;
  • the Significance and Engagement Policy; and
  • Heritage Incentive Funding.

Council also asked the community to identify any issues and potential projects that Council should consider in the lead up to the development of the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan.


Submissions are available for viewing on our Minutes & Agendas page (3 May 2017 Council Ordinary Meeting).
