Community Plan

Whitsunday Regional Council Community Plan 2011-2021 [PDF 3.6MB]

Whitsunday Regional Council used the development of the Community Plan as a unique opportunity to ascertain the viewpoints of all residents in the Whitsundays and to help direct those communities towards their longer term vision and their future.

The title, Whitsunday Regional Council Community Plan 2011-2021: Our Conversation with Our Community was adopted to signify that the Community Plan was a genuine attempt to promote and enable conversations between Council and our community.

Corporate Plan

Whitsunday Regional Council Corporate Plan 2016 - 2021 [PDF 3MB]

Council's Corporate Plan outlines our strategic agenda for the 2016 - 2021 five-year period and translates our community's long-term vision for the Whitsunday region into measurable strategies and outcomes. The document details the desired outcomes under each of Council's four key themes of Governance and Leadership, People, Place and Prosperity and includes Council's strategies to achieve these outcomes. 

This plan has been developed utilising the 2014 - 2019 Corporate Plan, which was prepared following extensive consultation and engagement with the community and elected members, and is essentially an extension of and minor update to that document. 

Whitsunday Regional Council resolved to adopt the amended Corporate Plan for the period 2016 - 2021 at its 10 June 2020 Ordinary Meeting and is again planning to engage with our community in order to inform a new Corporate Plan for the 2021 - 2026 five-year period during the 20/21 financial year. 

Operational Plan

Operational Plan 2020-21

Whilst Council’s Corporate Plan outlines our strategic agenda for the 2016-2021 five-year period and translates our community’s long-term vision for the region, it is the Operational Plan which translates these broad strategies into specific actions to be undertaken throughout the financial year and states how Council will manage operational risks. In alignment to the Corporate Plan, the Operational Plan is centred on the four key themes of Governance and Leadership, People, Place and Prosperity. These four themes will guide Council’s focus over the next five years and are aligned with a number of strategies and outcomes.

The Operational Plan for a local government must also include an annual performance plan for each commercial business unit of the local government:
