Community Strategic Plan
The Community Strategic Plan sits at the top of Council’s planning framework and will influence all the activities that Council will undertakes during the coming 10 years. This planning framework is determined by the Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) requirements of the Local Government Act 1993.
The Community Strategic Plan sets out the community’s goals and objectives over the coming 10 years and is supported by a Resourcing Strategy and Delivery Program. The Resourcing strategy looks at the finances, assets and human resources required to deliver our long-term goals, while the Delivery Program sets a course of action to progressively achieve these goals during each four-year increment, in-line with the term of the elected Council.
Blayney Shire 2025 - All the Pieces Together, identifies the priorities of our community for the future of the Blayney Shire. It provides information about Council's service response to these priorities as well as the input from other agencies. Council adopted its Community Strategic Plan, Blayney Shire 2025 - All the Pieces Together at an Ordinary Meeting of Council held on 12th March 2012 and annually thereafter.

Informing other plans
The Community Strategic Plan will form an important reference point for State agencies preparing their plans and programs for our region. They will be encouraged to build activities around the Objectives and Strategies set-out in our Plan. One of the opportunities to achieve this is through the Regional Coordination Management Group (RCMG) network, which is managed by the New South Wales Premier's Department. RCMG’s are set up in regional areas to bring State Agencies together to help deliver the outcomes of the State Plan and to work cooperatively on regional plans and programs.
Blayney Shire Council's strategy for raising State Agency awareness of the issues in our Community Strategic Plan is to form closer links with the Sate Government and organisations such as CENTROC. We will also be working more cooperatively with our neighbouring councils (Orange, Bathurst, Cabonne, Wellington and Central Tablelands Water).
