Community Plan

Front cover of the full Community Plan 2016-2036 During 2016, a long-term Community Plan was developed for Benalla Rural City, reflecting the aspirations and motivations of our community. The project was overseen by a community-based steering committee with 11 independent community representatives from across Benalla Rural City. Over 700 people and many community groups participated in developing the plan, which took over 12 months to complete. 

The plan guides our community in making decisions to promote the future we seek and is driven by the community for the community.

A Community Plan Implementation Steering Committee was established with three action teams:

  • Progressive Economy
  • Connected Community
  • Sustainable Environment

These teams worked on the 46 strategic directions identified in the plan.
