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.
