Local Community Plans


In 2009, Council initiated a local action planning program to engage and work cooperatively with local communities to identify priorities and actions for improvements.

The Local Community Plans aim to make a difference through developing a relationship between communities and Council, solve problems through creative thinking and identify actions to bring about improvements. The foundation of the actions plans are visions and aspirations of the people who live in the Macleay Valley for the people of the Macleay Valley.

The Community Plans identify how Council will work with communities to identify, promote and enhance the distinctive character of the local areas.

Communities involved

Plans have been developed for these distinct catchment areas/village communities throughout the Macleay Valley. Since the plans where developed Council has been progressing the actions identified within the Community Local Plans.

Community Catch-ups

In 2017 Council began a program of Community Catch-Ups to engage with towns and villages across the shire to understand their current needs and future visions.
