The Millewa Community Plan Development

This is an exciting time for your community as you come together to determine what is important, and to set goals for the future of your community.

Work is now underway for the review of the 2016-2020 Millewa Community Plan and for the development of the a new four year plan for your community.

Community Plans are important documents, a road map laying out the shared vision for the future, focusing on your community well-being, public facilities, town pride, transport, education and safety as well as a plan to highlight how you will achieve your goals.

Community Plans also help identify priority projects, key partners, community priorities and so much more. Community feedback and suggestions are vital to ensure these plans best represent the wants, needs, and goals of the Millewa residents.

We encourage you to participate and have provided a number of options to contribute to this plan.

How you can participate
