At the last public council meeting councillor Tricia Jones said the new plan will be designed to reflect the ideals of the newly elected councillors.

“This council is itself working on a Council Plan,” Cr Jones said.

“So while council officers are working on [the one by the previous council], we will also work on one that [reflects what we believe] the community considers important.”


Six of the council’s nine councillors are new to the council as of last year’s election.

The present Council Plan set out objectives for the 2011-2015 period.

    Hohohum…we will see when it’s done ?

  2. Jack Johnson says:

    And when will we, the community, get a chance to have real input into this so called plan ‘that the community considers important’? Or will we be given a few short weeks to once again be asked to rubber stamp something that we have had no genuine say in? C’mon Councillors – open it up for our input too!

  3. Christine McLaren says:

    More short term thining and moving priorities. No wonder nothing long term gets done and no one–community, council officers, councillors–know what is important and what to do/will get done. It is shifting sand.
    We need a proper plan that has stong community input and puts us on a known path over the medium to long term.

    They seem like a switched on team lets give them a go and see what happens.
