Find out what we heard: Community Strategic Plan consultation

The Murray River Council community is being invited to view the consultation results from the recent engagement undertaken to develop a new Community Strategic Plan.

The consultation kicked-off in April with Council’s first ever ‘virtual town hall’ where residents connected into an online Zoom session, and was then followed by a month of weekly, interactive activities where residents had their say on the development of the Plan via Council’s Your Say Murray River site.

Murray River Council mayor, Chris Bilkey thanked the community for their positive engagement in the process

“Whilst Strategic Planning is a legislative requirement for all NSW Councils, the best results are delivered off the back of feedback and input from the community.” 

“We had some fantastic ideas and comments provided during our consultation period, so I would encourage the community to jump online and take a look at what we heard.”

The Community Strategic Plan is a 10-year plan that sets Councils’ strategic objectives, goals, priorities and direction and identifies the community's vision and aspirations for the future.

“A lot of people think that consultation activities don’t end up anywhere, but the reality is every community infrastructure project that has recently been delivered, or even a new service, is the result of communities telling us that these things are needed.”

“We hope that by providing the consultation results the community can get a big-picture view of the process and where we are at with it,” Cr Bilkey said.
