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.
