Community Strategy 2014-2017


Council at its meeting on 8 January 2014 adopted the revised Community Strategy together with a series of Portfolio Plans, which will deliver the Council’s Priority Outcomes that are :

High Quality Environment - Place
Active Communities – People
Prosperous Economy – Prosperity
Effective and Efficient Council - Process

The Community Strategy provides a vision and direction for the District for the next few years. This update emphasises the Council’s role in achieving and delivering projects and programmes across the District to see change for the better. The Council will be the lead implementation body for the actions, but will work with partners and commission projects as required.

The Portfolio plans form the delivery plans for the Community Strategy and set out the responsibilities for each member of Cabinet and identify projects and programmes that will be delivered under each of the four priority outcomes.
