Towards 2042: Regional Community Strategic Plan
Canberra Region Joint Organisation
NSW councils are required to review and develop their Community Strategic Plans every four years under the Local Government Act 1993.
In early 2021, the Canberra Region Joint Organisation (CRJO) engaged Projectura to lead an engagement exercise across seven local government areas to listen to and understand community aspirations and priorities, and to prepare a Regional Community Strategic Plan.
Projectura engaged with over 6,700 people across the Canberra region. We asked people about their aspirations and priorities for the future to inform the development of a Regional Community Strategic Plan covering seven councils who are members of the Canberra Region Joint Organisation (CRJO). In October we presented the regional engagement findings to CRJO and participating councils.
In February 2022, Projectura presented seven Councils with completed Community Strategic Plans, ready for the review of newly elected councillors.
The following CRJO member councils were involved in the project:
– Bega Valley Shire Council
– Goulburn Mulwaree Council
– Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council
– Snowy Monaro Regional Council
– Snowy Valleys Council
– Upper Lachlan Shire Council
– Yass Valley Council
This project is a Finalist in the 2023 Local Government Professionals NSW Awards in the Partnerships and Collaboration category.
“Projectura provided the clear guidance and quality work you want when engaging a consultant. Their relatable and measured approach to the collaborative cross Council project was valued and saw a great outcome for our community and the broader region.”
