Community Planning

The Community Planning Framework, developed by community working groups in 2018, is now 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.  

Long term the Project will see Council support each of the pilot towns to make detailed plans for what needs to happen to get from A (idea) to B (outcome).

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