Ipswich City Council is currently developing a new Corporate Plan. This will include a community vision.
The current Corporate Plan was developed four years ago. It is no longer reflective of community or council needs.
The new Corporate Plan will improve Council's strategic and operational planning, because:
- The community profile has changed since the community vision was developed in 2015,
- Unprecedented changes within council requires improvements in transparency of decision-making and reporting,
- The population of Ipswich will rapidly increase over the next 20 years. This requires careful planning to maintain the livability of the city, and
- The format and content of the current plan is not ‘easy to use’. We need a plan with clear direction for council, and ultimately the community.
The project commenced in June 2020 and will conclude in June 2021. The new Corporate Plan will commence on 1st July 2021.
