The Community Planning Framework, developed by community working groups in 2018, is being trialled in Yea, Marysville and Toolangi-Castella.

Community planning aims to put communities in the driver’s seat. Communities themselves – with a bit of help from Council – will talk about their local strengths and challenges, identify priorities for their future and collaborate in the development and delivery of solutions for their towns.

In 2019 many community meetings and discussions occurred, looking at ideas and opportunities for the future. A list of ideas has since been collated for each of the trial towns and we now need to prioritise them. Community Planning Dinners are being held to help shape the vision and key goals for each towns Community Plan:

  • Yea Community Planning Dinner - Monday 10 February at 6pm - Yea Shire Hall
  • Toolangi-Castella Community Planning Dinner - Thursday 27 February at 6.30pm - CJ Dennis Hall, Toolangi
  • Marysville Community Planning Dinner - Thursday 12 March at 6pm - Marysville Community Centre 

This project wouldn't be possible without the generous support of Australia’s largest general insurer IAG, and their local brands CGU and WFI.
