The Council Plan 2017 - 2021 is a strategic document outlining what the City of Ballarat will do to help achieve Council’s and the community’s vision of Ballarat as a proud city that is bold, vibrant and thriving.
The plan describes Council’s priorities and outcomes for its four-year term and how these will be resourced. In comparison to previous years, Council Plan 2017-2021 is a streamlined document that will provide a clear, easy to understand and overarching vision, mission and purpose as well as goals, priorities, outcomes, progress measures, and key facts and figures.
The plan has four goals:
Liveability: Improve the quality of life for our community
Prosperity: Advance our economic position as the capital of Western Victoria
Sustainability: Protect, maintain and enhance our built and natural assets
Accountability: Provide strong and decisive leadership, and transparent governance
Council is required in each of the intervening financial years to review and make any necessary adjustments to the Council Plan.
