Our new Plan
Together with the community and the Banyule Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Advisory Committee, Council has been developing the new Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Plan 2017-2021. The Plan details the goals and strategies for enhancing outcomes for our Indigenous community over the next four years and is guided by the Inclusion, Access and Equity Framework 2017-2021.
Throughout Nov/Dec we completed the final phase of community consultation on the DRAFT Plan. Thank you to everyone who contributed, all feedback received will now be considered and the DRAFT Plan will be presented to Council for endorsement in Jan/Feb 2018.
Developing the Plan
Our new Plan has been developed through three phases of consultation with the community, we are now up to phase 3:
- Creating a vision for the Plan
- Setting Priorities and Key directions
- Public Exhibition of draft plan
Each year we continue to build on our successes and partnerships for implementing the Plan. Throughout 2014-2017 we have worked closely with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Advisory Committee who advise Council on undertaking projects and identifying new and emerging issues and opportunities. Take a look at the below Achievements Reports for examples of the collaborative work undertaken.
