In July 2020, Council adopted a new Strategic Community Plan (SCP), which defines the Town’s vision, aspirations and priorities for the next 10 years. It is the key guiding document that informs all other plans, strategies and policies and the Town’s actions and decisions.

One of the seven priority areas is “Strengthening and Connecting our Community”, which seeks to create an environment where people feel safe and welcomed, and the Town recognises that safety and security, both actual and perceived, are essential to fostering a sense of wellbeing and place.

Whilst the SCP is a high-level, strategic document, it clearly demonstrates the Town’s desire for a safe environment and connected community, in which we all have a part to play. This page contains information to help businesses operate, grow and prosper.
