Toward a sustainable future
  • Tuesday 02 June 2009

Sunshine Coast Regional Council formally declares its vision to be Australia’s most sustainable region - vibrant, green, diverse with the official launch of its corporate plan during Local Government Week 2009.

Deputy Mayor and corporate planning and performance portfolio holder Councillor Tim Dwyer will be joined by several community representatives to officially launch this community-inspired corporate plan.

Cr Dwyer said the corporate plan is the culmination of 12 months of research as well as vital contributions received from community representatives, councillors and staff.

“The corporate plan is council’s core strategic document,” Cr Dwyer said.

“It identifies the priorities for council to 2014 and beyond. It also guides council’s decision-making, budget, operations and resource allocations to achieve our vision.

“From the feedback we received during the public consultation period, we are confident that our corporate plan reflects the ambitions and desires of our wider community.

"The plan outlines 8 supporting themes, emerging priorities and strategies that council will pursue in the coming years to help achieve the vision. Annual operational plans and budgets will further detail strategies, as well as specific projects, to be completed each year.

“Council and staff look forward to following the corporate plan and implementing the key priorities and strategies to help achieve our vision of the Sunshine Coast as Australia’s most sustainable region,” Cr Dwyer said.
