 This Strategic Plan complies with Section 122 of the Local Government Act by:

  • Providing a vision for our District that reflects community issues and needs;
  • Guiding Council and its community in ensuring a healthy society, economy and environment; and
  • Ensuring that Council’s vision and strategies can be aligned with operational activities and work programs.

Mount Barker 2035 – District Strategic Plan contains 5 goal areas. Under each Goal area there are a number of Objectives and Strategies that reflect the diversity of community issues Council must consider when planning and budgeting for projects, programs and services. The objectives and strategies are at a high level as Council looks 20 years into the future. Projects, programs and services will be aligned to these strategies over 4 year planning cycles via a Corporate Implementation Plan.
