Glenwood Community Planning 2020/2021

Project Overview

Community Planning

Fraser Coast Regional Council aims to undertake the development of community plans within the small communities of the Fraser Coast Region to provide future vision for building better communities. The development of the plans aim to enact community lead change initiatives in response to community visions, aspirations and objectives.

Community Planning is an important mechanism for identifying and understanding community aspirations and priorities; and is a process that can enact and empower community to carry ownership for the development and improvement of their communities.

Whilst Glenwood has an existing Community Development Plan is now dated and in need of review, update and reinitiation in the Community. This upcoming process will also be an opportunity for the master planning of the Glenwood Recreation Grounds as a centre point for community activity and congregation.

The project will seek a whole of community approach in terms of input into the foundation of the plan and in identification and prioritisation of specific key projects. To ensure a cross representation of community input specific focus groups will allow us to connect to key demographics and groups within community.

  • Project Timeline

In 2013 Council, in partnership with the Glenwood developed the Glenwood Community Development Plan (GCDP) - 2013.  The document was developed as a five year plan for strengthening and connecting the community.

The objectives of the GCDP were to:-

  •  Identify key issues within each community and develop an achievable, outcome focussed framework to resolving issues in a collaborative manner;
  •  Develop closer links between the Council and the community;
  •  Building community commitment and capacity to contribute to the development and implementation of the identified strategies and actions;
  • To provide guidance for the development and social enhancement of the community in order to stimulate economic and social development;
  • To identify specific priorities for action to build community capacity and enhance the community's social capital; and
  • Identify holistic and sustainable outcomes tailored to reflect the individual and distinctive characteristics of particular places and their communities.

A copy of the Glenwood Community Development Plan 2013 document is available through the "Key Documents" tab of this project page.

The purpose of this new project is to undertake a review of the GCDP, to amend it accordingly and to partner with the community to prepare a master plan for the Community Precinct land where the Community Hall and other community focussed infrastructure is located.
