Presenting our new plan for a better Manningham

31 Aug 2021
Well Governed Council

At the Council meeting on 24 August 2021, we adopted our new Council Plan 2021 – 2025. Our Plan is the key strategy that sets our priorities to achieve better outcomes for Manningham over the next four years.

Extensive consultation guided the development of the plan which 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.’

Manningham Mayor Cr Andrew Conlon said it is an exciting time as we now start to deliver on the feedback from our community.

“We’re looking forward to implementing projects and initiatives that are important to those that live, work and play in our community,” he said.

“Our Council Plan 2021 – 2025 provides a road map for the future to help the organisation deliver our core services and infrastructure projects. It has an emphasis on community wellbeing, particularly for younger and older people, our local environment and local businesses.”

Manningham Council sincerely thanks residents and community groups who took the time to provide their invaluable feedback to shape this plan.

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 actions are included under key themes:

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

We now look forward to working with our partners including community, local and regional agencies and groups, businesses and other levels of government to deliver the actions.

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