(9/4/07 - C)  It sets out how Council will spend our money, and what it proposes to achieve, in the coming year

Every resident should take an interest in this document, because (in theory at least) it is a key driver of what Council intends to do in the coming year.  This is your chance to comment on it, BEFORE they do it.  Check Council's website for details about making submissions:  NB  When MRRA has access to details we will post an update on this item.


Council Calls For Public Input On "Council Plan" by 6 June

(9/5/06 - C)  Formerly the Corporate Plan, it's the 'dominant planning and vision-setting tool' for the Shire for the next 4 years.  You really do need to read and comment on this critically important document

We often complain about what our Council does, but how many of us actually get involved in setting the ground rules?  Getting the Council Plan right is a fundamental requirement if Council is going to represent, and make decisions based on, community values.  This is an opportunity for you to have input on what happens in Macedon Ranges Shire, so have your say on what's important and where we go in future.  Click here for more information.


MRRA Says:

We think it would be a good start if the Council Plan was renamed the Community Plan to better reflect who has ownership of it. How about you?
