Overview of the draft Community Facilities Plan 2019-2036

Community and cultural infrastructure plays a critical role in providing spaces of social inclusion, health and well being for all members of our community - where people of all ages, cultural backgrounds and abilities can connect and share knowledge and interests, and create a sense of belonging and solidarity in the community.

The draft Community Facilities Plan considers community and cultural buildings including libraries, community centres and halls, museums, art galleries and some tenanted facilities like pre-schools; including those owned and/or managed by Council or private community service providers.

The aims of the draft plan are to protect and enhance the quality of community infrastructure and deliver a network of community facilities that are welcoming, accessible, affordable and adaptable, and be financially and environmentally sustainable.

A detailed needs assessment and consultation with community, stakeholders and the community services sector have informed the draft plan’s Shire-wide and district level network action plans, which recommend the type of new and expanded community facilities needed to be delivered in the short, medium and long-term to 2036.

If adopted, this plan will guide Council’s decision-making around the planning, re-purposing, financing, governance and management of the network of community facilities to meet the needs of future generations. Council will work collaboratively with State and Federal Government, the development industry and broader community services and social infrastructure providers to deliver well-located, high-quality and adaptable community facilities and services that provides existing and future residents and visitors with diverse, dynamic and enjoyable places to work, live and play.
