What's Your Dream for the Blayney Shire in 10 Years Time?

Under the Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework (IP&R), every 4 years following the ordinary election of Councillors, Council is required to develop or review and endorse a Community Strategic Plan (CSP). Following this Council is required to prepare and adopt a Resourcing Strategy, a 4-year Delivery Program (DP) and annual Operational Plan (OP) by 30 June the following year.  With this in mind, Council staff and Councillors have commenced the process of reviewing all current Blayney Shire Council IP&R documents by 30 June 2018.

The CSP is a community document with priorities and aspirations for the future of the Shire covering a period of at least 10 years and following workshops and extensive consultation with local residents and stakeholder groups in 2012, the current CSP entitled ‘Blayney Shire 2025 - All the Pieces Together’, was adopted in March 2012.

The vision established for Blayney 2025 recognised our communities; of the town, villages and settlements as supportive and welcoming to those who live here and also those who visit.  With beautiful and productive landscape, a showcase of rural and mining heritage, of how agriculture, mining and industry can work together for the greatest good. An area where there is both space and time to make and live your dreams!

Council has recognised the importance of working together for the benefit of the community and local businesses.  As Blayney is the ‘Shire of Villages’, we chose a different tact to develop in partnership with local Progress, Town/Village Associations individual Community Plans which have now been reviewed and updated for Millthorpe, Carcoar, Mandurama, Lyndhurst, Neville, Newbridge, Blayney and now Barry/Hobbys Yards.  These local level community plans will be the primary source for feeding local priorities and projects into the new Blayney Shire CSP.

Council wants to know what is important to you and what should be the focus for the future of the region.  Council invites you to undertake the following short survey so that your views and feedback may be included in the new CSP.
