The Strategic Planning Framework maps out the role of current Council strategies and plans that work to deliver the vision for CBCity 2028. It is an interactive document which includes the links to the adopted plans, strategies and policies, outlines work in progress and is updated when new documents are completed.

​The framework works from the highest level of strategic direction in the Community Strategic Plan through to more detailed plans that will eventually drive works projects and programs on the ground. 

The framework is comprised of the​ following levels:

Supporting/Strategic Plans break down broad theme areas discussed in Lead Strategies into smaller themes providing high level actions. They identify broad works projects and programs required to deliver on these actions and may include indicative costing and resourcing requirements and delivery time frames.

Detailed Action Plans take actions from Supporting/Strategic Plans and identify specific works projects and programs required to deliver on these actions. Detailed Action Plans may include detailed costing and resourcing requirements and delivery time frames.​​

These also consist of Plans of Management for land that is classified as ‘Community Land' within its ownership, care, control and/or management.

The way 'Community Land' is to be used and managed is strictly governed by an adopted PoM, therefore a Plan of Management is the primary land management tool. It provides a clear framework for use and management of all ‘Community Land'. Council is required to review and update PoM's as part of legislation under the Local Government Act 1993, and the Local Government Regulations 2005.

A Plan of Management must:

  • Identify the important features of the land (i.e. natural significance, sportsgrounds etc)
  • Clarify how Council will manage the land
  • In particular indicate how the land may be used or developed (i.e. leasing, licencing etc)

Guidelines, Policies and Codes provide detailed information, rules for activities or guidance for specific works on Council or other lands.​

Our vision of the future is a City that is Thriving, Dynamic and Real!
