Integrated planning and reporting

Integrated planning and reporting is an organisational framework used to identify our priorities that drive the Shire’s operations. The framework consists of number of strategic plans for identifying and prioritising local issues.

The strategic plans set the goals and direction for the Shire's future activities. It integrates asset, service and financial plans so that the Shires resource capabilities match our community’s needs. The most important of these is the Shire's Strategic Community Plan.

The Framework also helps ensure Council’s decisions consider the long-term future and the community’s aspirations into account to deliver the best results possible with the resources available.

Strategic Community Plan

A strategic community plan is a long-term overarching document that sets out our community’s vision and aspirations for the future. It also sets out the key strategies and high-level actions required to achieve these aspirations. The strategic community plan identifies how we will get from where we are now to where we want to be.

The purpose of a strategic community plan is to:

  • Acknowledge community aspirations and priorities.
  • Provide an opportunity for participation by the community in decision‑making processes.
  • Coordinate decision‑making and use of resources of the Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley and other organisations working with and in the community.
  • Provide a long‑term focus for the delivery of facilities and services by the Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley and other organisations working with and in the community.
  • Provide a basis for accountability.

The Plan has three broad strategic themes:

  1. Strong leadership and governance that underpins a more strategic approach to community engagement, regional development and organisational sustainability
  2. Greater returns from regional investment to ensure sustainable provision of appropriate physical and social infrastructure
  3. Protection and enhancement of lifestyle values, community facilities and the environment to provide safe and inviting communities.

The Strategic Community Plan was developed in 2013 through extensive community consultation. In 2015 the Shire conducted a two-year strategic review of the Plan through consideration of resident priorities, trends and drivers impacting the Shire.

Progress against the objectives will be reported in the Shire's Annual Report.
