Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

A new Council Plan is coming!

Every four years Council works with the community to develop a new Council Plan. The Plan identifies priorities for action and determines how Council will allocate resources to make them happen.

This year, we also want to check in on the Wellington 2030 Community Vision. 2030 is the community's long-term hopes for the future of our Shire. The 2030 Vision was developed in 2017 and we want to see how the first four years of delivery against it have gone and check if it needs updating for the future.

Join the conversation to share your priorities for the future and feedback on the impact of Wellington 2030 so far.

Stage 1 consultation is open 8 February – 2 April 2021.


What is this consultation all about?


Background

In 2017 we undertook extensive community consultation, and you identified your vision for 2030 was:

“Happy people, healthy environment and thriving communities in the heart of Gippsland.”

There are five main themes to Wellington 2030. To view more details about each of the themes, please click on the headers below.

We heard that you valued:

Community


"We know and support each other and have a strong sense of community belonging. Diversity is respected and there are many social and community activities providing opportunities for all people to interact. We strive for good health, feel safe in our communities and are prepared for natural disasters."


Services and infrastructure


"Wellington has a built environment that is sustainable, appropriate, accessible and responsive to the community. Transport connects people to communities and places. Events and services support our strong communities.”


Natural environment


"Wellington’s natural environment and landscape is clean, diverse, beautiful, accessible and protected.”


Lifelong learning


“Wellington has a broad choice of local training, education and holistic learning and development options that lead to meaningful employment and personal fulfilment.”


Economy


“Wellington has a wealth of diverse industries providing employment opportunities for all. There is growth in the Wellington population and economy which is balanced with the preservation of our natural environment and connected communities.”



What is happening now?

Now we want to know your thoughts on progress against Wellington 2030 – what has been successful, what still needs work and what new challenges or opportunities have emerged since then? We also want to hear about your priorities what do you want to see done over the next four years?
