The Mooroopna Community Plan was first developed in 2010 and continues to provide an important role in the community driving the priorities which are important to them. This third iteration of the plan seeks to identify what is important to the Mooroopna community and what the priorities will be for the 2022-2026 period.

What is Community Planning?

Community Planning is planning for the future of an area that is led by the community. The purpose of Community Planning is to give local people greater ownership over their small town or neighbourhood by empowering individuals and groups to take a proactive role in shaping the future of the areas in which they live.

Through information gathering, identification of community assets (community resources) and community engagement, Community Plan Groups are established. Groups are then supported by Council to undertake consultation (such as this!) to develop a Community Plan and a list of actions that the group would like to achieve.

Council then partners with Community Plan Groups to implement their plan through advocacy, seeking funding opportunities and building the skills and capacity of the group. Community Plans are reviewed periodically to ensure priorities continue to be relevant to the community.
