Residents are encouraged to be part of Council’s strategic direction by having their say on the new draft Corporate Plan, which was adopted by Council for public consultation at today’s General Meeting.
Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said the draft Corporate Plan 2015-2020 would be open for public consultation from Friday 27 March until Friday 24 April.
“This important plan outlines Council’s strategic direction for the next five years, so it is important the community is involved in its development,” she said.
“The Corporate Plan is more than an internal corporate document; it builds on the Redlands 2030 Community Plan, aligning Council’s corporate objectives with the aspirations of the community.
“This plan is essentially the recipe that guides how Council prioritises and delivers its services, programs and facilities to the community
Cr Williams said the draft Corporate Plan 2015-2020 retained the eight existing outcomes from the community plan;
- Healthy natural environment,
- Green living,
- Embracing the bay,
- Quandamooka Country,
- Wise planning and design,
- Supportive vibrant economy,
- Strong and connected communities, and
- Inclusive and ethical governance.
“These eight outcomes were identified as priorities by residents and provide a benchmark to ensure Council continues to meet the needs of the community,” she said.
“The draft plan was prepared following consultation with the community including a community survey and meetings with representatives from 13 environmental and community groups.
“The next step is for the community to now provide feedback on the draft plan, which will then be updated and formally adopted by Council.”
The draft Corporate Plan 2015-2020 will be available on Council’s website from this Friday or in Council libraries and customer service centres.
