Mayor Pedwell said this year’s plan was a comprehensive guide to all the triumphs, important updates, and changes to the council moving forward.
“This Regional Plan continues to promote Council’s focus of ‘Moving Forward Together’, a sentiment that guides our approach to decision making and service delivery across our vast region and was developed through a strong focus on community engagement,” Pedwell said.
“A lot of hard work has gone into this year’s Regional Plan, and I would like to extend my gratitude to all of those who contributed to this year’s report.”
A draft copy of the Regional Plan was released for public consultation on 2 June for a 21-day period.
