The Council Plan 2013-2017 is the strategic plan that explains how Darebin City Council will implement its Vision, Mission and Goals by the end of the Council’s four-year term. It articulates the goals and outcomes against which the Council will be measured and explains, at a high level, how the Council will achieve them.
The Council Plan commitments respond to the feedback and contributions gathered through a broad consultative process and an analysis of relevant trends. Darebin Council officers had direct discussions with well over a thousand people during the preparation process, the results of which have strongly influenced the Plan’s Vision, Mission and its detailed strategies.
The Plan describes the shared future the Darebin Community aspire to and what we intend to do to progress this outcome between 2013 and 2017. It includes amongst many things a strong commitment to good governance and many measures and strategies designed to support fair and inclusive access to council services, employment and economic development for residents, the promotion of Darebin’s arts, culture and festivals, improvements in community health, greater environmental sustainability and long-term responsible financial planning.
The implementation of Council Plan 2013-2017 is supported by a Strategic Resource Plan (SRP) that outlines how Darebin Council will ensure that Darebin remains a vibrant, unique and diverse place that delivers on the Vision that this is ‘The Place to Live’.
