On Tuesday 24 August 2021, the Icon for application/pdf Manningham Council Plan 2021-2025 (5.65 MB) was adopted at the Ordinary Council Meeting.

This key strategic document outlines our priorities and goals, why they are important and the actions we will take to deliver better outcomes for the community over the next four years.

The Council Plan 2021 - 2025 will guide us to improve our core services with emphasis on community wellbeing, particularly for younger and older people, our local environment and local businesses.

Developed through extensive consultation, the plan outlines the actions we will take to pursue our Community Vision 2040:

Manningham is a peaceful, inclusive and safe community. We celebrate life with its diverse culture, wildlife and natural environment. We are resilient and value sustainable and healthy living, a sense of belonging, and respect for one another.

The actions in the Council Plan 2021 - 2025 are included under key themes, with associated goals:

  • Healthy Community
  • Resilient Environment
  • Well Governed Council
  • Vibrant and Prosperous Economy
  • Liveable Places and Spaces

There were over 2,600 people over six months who informed this plan through a community survey, targeted conversations with key groups, four community engagement sessions with a deliberative Community Panel, Councillor workshops and staff consultation sessions.

Thank you to our inaugural Community Panel of over 40 local residents who deliberated on the feedback and other information. Sharing their experiences, recommendations and creating the new community vision furthered our understanding on where to focus in the future.

The Council Plan 2021-2025 is our promise to you in pursuit of our community’s vision for the future and to achieve the very best for Manningham.
