The Your Vision for our Future – Hunters Hill Community Plan was developed in 2017/2018 through significant consultation with residents, community groups, stake holder, businesses and other government bodies.
The plan represents a vision and framework to guide the aspirations and needs of the Hunters Hill Municipality over the next 10 years. It is designed to not only articulate our foresight for the future, but also outline expected levels of service, financial responsibilities and the ability to respond to future opportunities and challenges. Most importantly, it will address the level of resources that will realistically be available to achieve these aspirations and needs.
The Plan does not exist in isolation and is supported by other more detailed plans and strategies, including a Delivery Program with a four year outlook and an operational plan with a one year outlook. This integrated framework acts as a ‘blueprint’ and encourages Council to draw the various plans together and understand how they interact to get the maximum leverage from our efforts by planning holistically for the future.
Whilst it is a State Legislative requirement to develop this plan, Council’s role within this process was to provide the platform for the community to have ‘their say’ and document their responses. These valuable contributions strengthened Council’s partnership with all stake holders and endorsed the distinctive and beneficial role of all partners involved.
This plan should be considered as the basis of our impending prosperity and empower the community to take collective action and responsibility in creating a stronger more connected community.
Between June 2017 and March 2018 a comprehensive engagement process was implemented to inform, consult, involve, collaborate and empower the community to shape the future direction of Hunters Hill Municipality. Through this process Council endeavoured to learn from the community and increase our knowledge of what is important to you!
The engagement strategy was designed to ensure we heard from a wide range of perspectives, age groups, cultures, locations and special interest groups. The response was overwhelming and represented the most successful community engagement process Council has ever undertaken.
The Hunters Hill Community Strategic Plan includes the Delivery Program and Operational Plan as one combined document.
The Council, under the Local Government Act 1993, is required to have a community engagement strategy, based upon social justice principles, for engaging the community when developing the Community Strategic Plan (CSP) and for other planning activities. The purpose of this strategy is to outline the processes Council will use to engage the community in a range of planning contexts. It describes how the Council’s Community Engagement Policy will be implemented and it informs how individual engagement action plans will be developed and carried out. Please view our Community Engagement Strategy and Policy here.
The Community Strategic Plan (CSP) represents the highest level of strategic planning undertaken by a local council. All other plans developed by the council as part of the Integrated Planning and Reporting framework reflect and support the implementation of the Community Strategic Plan.
YOUR future 2028 is the Community Strategic Plan for the future of the Hunters Hill Muncipality. The plan reflects the aspirations and priorities of the community that were identified following extensive engagement.
Based on what you said throughout the extensive engagement processes, the plan identifies five key themes:
Council’s Resourcing Strategies identify how the goals and aspirations identified in the Community Strategic Plan will be prioritised and achieved.
The Resourcing Strategies divided into three components:
The Resourcing Strategies are also intended to make clear what elements of the Community Strategic Plan the council will take responsibility for. Other levels of government, business, non-government organisations, community groups and individuals will also have a role in achieving the outcomes of the Community Strategic Plan.
