The Corporate Plan 2014 - 2019 was adopted by Council on 27 June 2014.
Council's financial management system is defined by Section 104 of the Local Government Act 2009 and includes the Corporate Plan as the primary planning document.
The Corporate Plan 2014 - 2019 outlines the vision, goals, outcomes and strategic actions that aim to ensure the region's future meets the needs and aspirations of the community.
