Evolve

Consultation has concluded

The Evolve logo shows multiple speech bubbles to represent the project's focus of communicating with the community.



What is Evolve?

The objective of the Evolve project is to understand the community’s future needs and desires for the Town by October 2016 so that we can create a Strategic Community Plan for future years. Our desired outcome is for the Town and the community to work together to identify services and implement projects that meet the community's expectations.

To achieve this we want to start a conversation and engage with the community in a way that has never been done before. There will be genuine and open discussions with the community about the future of the Town.

At the end of the project, the Town will have a Strategic Community Plan, a Corporate Business Plan, a Long Term Financial Plan, Asset Management Plan(s), and a Workforce Plan; all of these documents being genuinely informed by the community.

What's happening now?

The public participation phase of Evolve has now ended.

We've had the feedback received through workshops, cafe conversations, online participation and pop-up engagement analysed, and have called for submissions on the Draft Abridged Strategic Community Plan 2017-2032.

The Strategic Community Plan is intended to outline the long-term vision, mission and strategic outcomes for the Town. The draft abridged document represents a shorter version of a traditional Strategic Community Plan. We wanted to include as much of the strategic components of the Plan in one document that could be easily read, hence this abridged version.

We will now be looking at the submissions received and making any required changes. The Strategic Community Plan will be considered by Council at a Special Council Meeting in late May 2017.

    Do you think the Town needs to be cycle friendly?

    Is the Town currently cycle friendly or would you like to see improvements made? If so, what do you think should be done?

    The Town implemented parking management in 2014. Now, a couple of years down the track the original model has been changed and tweaked as we listened, and acted, on your concerns.

    Third-party research shows that there are more people in the area than before parking management was implemented. We have noted better access to business and reduced congestion from commuters.

    How do you think parking management is going?

    A lot of the responses to our Ask the People survey have mentioned public spaces and community facilities in the Town. 

    Are you happy with what is provided, do you have any ideas on how these can be improved or do you think that we are currently over-servicing this priority?

    Let us know your thoughts.
