2030 Community Vision
Council is committed to planning for and delivering key priorities for the Alpine Shire community. To achieve this, the Alpine Shire 2030 Community Vision was developed in 2005, and reviewed in 2010. The 2030 Community Vision outlines how the community would like to see the Alpine Shire in the year 2030. While it is an aspirational document, the key directions in it feed down into the Council Plan, which is Council’s means of delivering the vision.
The Council Plan is a strategic document detailing Council’s direction and desired outcomes for the four financial years following each Council election. The Council Plan also contains a Strategic Resource Plan, which identifies the resources, financial and human, required to deliver the Council Plan, as well as the Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan. The Council Plan and the incorporated Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan are reviewed annually to ensure they remain relevant for the remainder of the term of the Council Plan.
The Council Plan is supported by the annual budget, which provides the detail and annual activities that contribute to achieving the objectives contained within the plan. The Annual Report provides an ‘end of year’ report on progress against the Council Plan.
The Strategic Resource Plan 2020-2023 can be found on page 26 of the Council Plan, accessible in the link above.
Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan
The Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan is incorporated into the current Council Plan, accessible in the link above.
Alpine Shire Council's Budget is aligned with the vision in the Council Plan 2017-2021. It seeks to deliver projects and services that support and build community wellbeing, and that boost the local economy.
Council's Annual Report provides a report on its operations for the year, including a report against the achievement of the Council Plan. It also contains audited financial statements, and the performance statement. The Annual Report is released in October each year.
Community Satisfaction Survey
Council participates in the annual Community Satisfaction Survey, coordinated by Local Government Victoria. The survey interviews 400 residents within the municipality, collecting feedback on overall performance, community consultation and engagement, advocacy (lobbying on behalf of the community), customer service, and overall direction. Results are compared against performance in previous years, between similar size councils, and state-wide results.
Local Government Victoria also releases a State-wide report, demonstrating results across all participating councils.
