The Community Strategic Plan (CSP) is an overarching 10 year plan that is prepared by Council and the community based on community priorities.
It identifies the community’s aspirations for the future and outlines strategies to achieve them. The community owns this plan and it will serve as the primary resource for guiding future councillors on what the community wants.
The Community Strategic Plan essentially addresses four key questions for the community:
- Where are we now?
- Where do we want to be in ten years’ time?
- How will we get there?
- How will we know when we have arrived?
While Council creates the CSP and coordinates community input, it is not wholly responsible for the implementation. Individuals and community groups are responsible for some of the strategies, while other partners such as government agencies and businesses will be encouraged to deliver long-term objectives from the plan.
At the end of each council term a report is prepared by the council to the community which examines what progress has been made towards the achievement of outcomes identified in the Community Strategic Plan.
Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R)
Council is required to develop long, medium and short term plans that detail how the community’s vision, aspirations and priorities will be delivered via projects and services.
Snowy Valleys Council is committed to using the IP&R Framework to strengthen the linkages between community aspirations, financial capacity and practical service delivery.
