Project Update 21/4/2021: Consultation has now closed
Consultation for the Community Vision and Council Plan has now closed. Thank you to everyone who has made a contribution over the last three months online, in workshops or via mail. Council staff will now collate all results to develop a draft plan for Council's consideration and public exhibition.
Help refresh Councils' vision and four year plan
The work of Council is guided by the 2030 Community Vision and our Council Plan, which is developed every four years.
In the coming months, we are developing our new Council Plan 2021 -25 with you, the people of Hobsons Bay!
We would like to know what you believe are the important issues facing our municipality and your ideas to solve them.
There are several ways to be involved
- Complete a quick survey (below) to refresh the 2030 Community Vision
- Attend a community workshop in your ward or on a particular topic of interest
- Have a chat to Council staff at one of the many events planned across the coming weeks
- Provide feedback on the Community Vision and draft Council Plan once they are released for community comment in mid 2021.
