Council Plan 2013-17

The Council Plan is a medium term strategic plan that sets out our strategic direction and priorities for the four-year Council term. The plan guides Council through its four year term and is shaped by the community vision, Moonee Valley Next Generation (MV2035).

The Council Plan consists of strategic objectives or goals that are framed around five themes. The delivery of each objective is supported by key strategies and are measured by a number of indicators.

The  Council Plan 2013-17 (pdf, 3.7MB)(accessible docx, 220KB) was adopted by Council on 25 June 2013.

How we resource this plan

A central part of developing the Council Plan is taking into account the financial environment in which Council works. The Council Plan includes a Strategic Resource Plan, a four-year plan of resources we will need to implement the Council Plan.

How we report on our progress

We report on our progress on implementing the Council Plan through our Annual Report.
