Evolve and Strategic Community Plan review

The Strategic Community Plan (SCP) is the principal strategy and planning document that reflects community long-term vision, values, aspirations and priorities.

The Town completes a major review of its Strategic Community Plan once every four years. The last major review the Town completed was known as the Evolve Project.

The Evolve Project ran from November 2015 to November 2016 with the purpose of informing, educating and engaging the community to help inform the Town's Strategic Community Plan. This was the largest community engagement process the Town has ever undertaken, with over 1,000 community members involved.

What is happening now?

We are currently in the planning phase of the next major SCP review. This includes:

  • Review of the Evolve Project
  • Research into best-practice strategic planning
  • Development of a project plan for the delivery of the major review and the Integrated Planning Reporting Framework (IPRF) documents.

How can I get involved?

If you were involved in the Evolve Project, we want to hear from you! We want to know your experience and recommendations. Feedback received will assist us in evaluating the effectiveness of the engagement, help shape and strengthen future engagement and inform the next stage of the review.
