Community Planning

Community planning enables people to create a shared vision and objectives for their local community.  It helps to establish what community members like about their township or district, what they want to change, and what they would like to introduce. Importantly, the planning and resulting actions are conducted by the community for the community, with Yarra Ranges Council supporting the process.

Community planning:

  • is positive and empowering
  • connects communities together
  • strengthens existing relationships, and
  • establishes new partnerships.

The process is driven by community members, who decide when to start, how to proceed, who should be involved, what objectives will be attempted, and what the priorities for action will be.  In this way the outcomes are owned by the community.

Community members will learn much about their community through the process.  Informed communities are best at identifying and resolving local issues.

Yarra Ranges Council can provide mentoring, support, advice, encouragement, information, training and seed funding along the way.
