Your Valley Your Voice 2030 is an opportunity for members of the community to help Council plan for the Valley’s future.
The Derwent Valley Council is currently undertaking the process of developing a new Community Strategic Plan – Your Valley Your Voice 2030.
The Strategic Plan will direct Council’s resources and set priorities for actions and investment for the next 12 years. This sets Councils’ long term vision and will shape; what the community will look like, the services available, how people will get to and from places and what infrastructure is needed.
As a community it is important for us to have a document that voices how we want to develop into the future. The Derwent Valley Community Strategic Plan 2030, will guide Council on how to achieve community goals and provide a measure for progress.
To ensure Council’s future planning is informed, robust and relevant to the community, it relies on input from individuals, business, community groups and other agencies.
Council will be holding a series of community workshops and listening posts throughout the Valley from July 23 -31, 2018.
