Tablelands Regional Council has been working with a focus group of around 60 community representatives to identify and narrow down key priorities and responsibilities for a new community plan which will be called Tablelands 2030+. 

“We’re now seeking input from the wider community to build on the focus group’s work, and to drive and create our regional roadmap,” Mayor Rod Marti said. 

“This is a unique and important opportunity to help us co-create the desired future we want to achieve for the next generation who will live, work, study, invest and participate in our community.” 

Mayor Marti said the current Community Plan was developed a decade ago when the organisation was a recently amalgamated Council so the new plan would be an important tool to inform council’s decision making and partnerships ging forward. 

“The draft priorities and vision are available on our engagement portal and you can provide comments directly about the draft, suggest a vision, contribute ideas, and make comments on our interactive map and imagery,” he said. 

“We’ll also be at markets, supermarkets, events and other locations in the community asking for the community’s feedback.” 

Residents have until Monday 18 April to participate in the community consultation. Go to
