Hello MidCoast – it’s time to focus on our future!

The MidCoast Community Strategic Plan 2030 – Shared Vision, Shared Responsibility was developed in 2018, after extensive consultation with MidCoast locals right across our region.

As we track towards our vision for 2030, we’ve been checking in with you regularly in many different ways, to ensure that your priorities continue to be reflected in the Plan and its objectives and strategies continue to meet your needs and stay on track to achieve our vision for 2030.

Now it’s time to check in with you again and update our community strategic plan, MidCoast 2030: Shared Vision, Shared Responsibility.

What is the Community Strategic Plan?

In 2018, MidCoast community developed MidCoast 2030: Shared Vision, Shared Responsibility - our very own community strategic plan with 5 important priorities:

  • our unique, diverse and culturally rich communities
  • a connected community
  • our environment
  • our thriving and growing economy
  • strong leadership and shared vision.

The community also identified important actions to achieve these priorities.

The Community Strategic Plan:

  • is a whole of community plan. Council’s role is to bring together community stakeholders to build and achieve a sustainable plan for the future of our community
  • outlines where our community wants to be in 2030, how we will get there, who will be involved and how we will know we have arrived at our community’s vision
  • aims to celebrate what we love about MidCoast, enhance what could be made even better, and create new opportunities that work towards our long-term vision.

Why does the plan need updating?

The Community Strategic Plan 2030 is our focus for the future – but over time things can change, and new priorities can emerge.

We know that since the community developed the plan in 2018 we’ve experienced a range of events that have impacted us, from an unprecedented drought, to bushfires, pandemic and then floods.

We want to ask you now:

  • Does the community vision for 2030 still resonate with you?
  • What has changed since 2018?
  • Do we need to pivot or adjust the actions and strategies in our plan to achieve our vision for 2030?

Think of it as ‘tweaking’ the long term plan to respond to changes that we’ve seen on the MidCoast!
