Council Plan


The Council Plan is developed every four years in accordance with legislative requirements and is based on a planning framework that aligns the Hobsons Bay 2030 Community Vision to Council’s planning, resource allocation and service provision to the Hobsons Bay community. The Council Plan sets the strategic direction and objectives for Council's work.  

Following an extensive community engagement campaign between January and September 2021, the Council Plan 2021-25(PDF, 2MB) was adopted at the Council Meeting on Tuesday 12 October, 2021.  The campaign involved a wide range of media and engagement activities to encourage as many members of the community as possible to participate. Over 1,400 people from the community were engaged and Council received over 4,800 ideas about what Council should focus on over the next four years. 

The Council Plan 2021-25 also incorporates the Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan that outlines the areas of priorities for Council to focus on in order to support the health and wellbeing of our community.

The Council Plan 2021-25 replaces the previous plan, Council Plan 2017-21(PDF, 2MB).

Tracking our progress
