Howard and District Community Plan

Project Overview

What should our community's vision & priorities be for the next 10 years?

Community planning is an important mechanism for identifying and understanding community vision, aspirations and priorities for the future and helps enact community led change.

The Howard and District Community Plan Development Group are wanting to hear from you to identify the key community objectives, prority projects and actions for the future of the community.

In developing the plan, a Community Plan Development Group has been established. Local community members (Community Plan Development Group) volunteer their time to coordinate the development of the plan. The groups will engage the wider community to develop ideas via surveys, focus groups and open houses.

The role of this group is to work through a whole of community approach in identification and evaluation of community feedback in response to the question “what should our community’s vision & prioritise be for the next 10 years?”

Community Planning - Howard and District

The Howard and District (Howard, Cherwell, Burrum Town, Torbanlea, Burrum River and Pacific Haven) communities are currently undertaking a process to develop a community plan. Community planning is an important mechanism for identifying and understanding community vision, aspirations and prioritise for the future and helps enact community led change.

In developing the plan, a Community Plan Development Group has been established. The role of this group is to work through a whole of community approach in identification and evaluation of community feedback in response to the question “what should our community’s vision & prioritise be for the next 10 years?”

The project will seek a whole of community approach in terms of input into the foundation of the plans 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.

The community planning process will be implemented in a five stage process for each plan, across a period of approximately 3 months.
