Burdekin Shire Council has adopted the Corporate Plan which will guide the organisation’s services and functions for the next five years.
Mayor Bill Lowis said the Corporate Plan was the result of community consultation.
“We went to the community and asked what direction our residents wanted us to take and this plan is based on that feedback,” he said.
“This plan outlines the Burdekin’s strategic direction for the next five years and includes five key areas that were based on community priorities.
“These areas are infrastructure, economic development, social wellbeing, environment and organisational sustainability.
“I would like to congratulate all those involved in putting this document together – they’ve done a great job in producing an easy to read, concise, professional-looking document.”
Cr Lowis said Council’s extensive range of services and projects would align with at least one of the concise strategies.
“There will be a limited number of the full document printed, but it will be accessible via Council’s website for those wanting to view it,” he said.
“We will be sending out a summary of the plan to each household in the Shire to ensure everyone knows what Council is striving for.
“This summary is a concise and easy-to-read version that outlines the strategies and the evaluation measures Council will use to guide its services and functions.”
Cr Lowis said the Corporate Plan was a fluid document which would be reviewed annually.
“This plan will change and grow with the Burdekin and its residents. It’s not something that will be written in stone, but will allow change,” he said.
“The Corporate Plan also will guide Council operations and form the basis of our budget considerations.
“It allows Council to set goals and achieve them.”
The Corporate Plan Summary will be delivered to every Burdekin household at the end of March.
