To ensure that our City continues to prosper and retains its vibrancy and strong 'sense of place', the Council works closely to its strategic plans.
Strategic Plans assist the Council to maintain a clear focus on issues of importance and enable it to allocate appropriate resources to achieve the desired outcomes.
Community consultation is undertaken to develop strategic plans, to ensure that the aspirations and priorities of all stakeholders are taken into account.
The overarching planning framework for the Council's decision-making is the long-term strategic management plan CityPlan 2030: Shaping Our Future. Other key strategic planning documents include the Long-term Financial Management Plan and Asset Management Plans. These plans are updated and reviewed regularly to ensure that the priorities continue to be relevant.
