Community Planning

About the Project

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. In 2019 many community meetings and discussions occurred, looking at ideas and opportunities for the future. A list of ideas were then collated for each of the trial towns. These ideas have now been prioritised at community dinners held in February and March 2020 to help shape the vision and key goals for each town's Community Plan.

The communities of Yea, Marysville and Toolangi-Castella have each developed a Community Plan, based on input from local community members. These plans were acknowledged by Council at its Meeting on 27 May 2020.

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