Wellington 2031


Wellington 2031 Community Vision

Wellington 2031 is our community’s vision for the future. Wellington Shire Council has facilitated the development of this vision and will play a role in supporting the community to achieve it.

The  original  Wellington  2030  Strategic  Vision  was  developed  through  community  consultation  in  2008  and  was  renewed  in  2017 due to significant regional, national and global changes affecting the Shire and the impacts of these on our population.  The  common  themes  from  this  engagement  were  used  to  develop  the  five  key  themes  in  this  community  vision:  Communities,  Services  and  Infrastructure,  Natural  Environment, Lifelong Learning and Economy.

In 2021, we completed a ‘check-in’ process to see if people’s views about what was important to them had changed and what they wanted to see achieved in the next 10 years. Because  the  existing  Community  Vision  is  still  relevant,  we  have  not  changed  the  content  during  the   2021   ‘check-in’.   Instead,   we   have  provided  an  update  to  the  community  in  the  end  pages  of  this  plan  about  what  Council  has  achieved in the last 4 years towards your vision.

The  Wellington  Shire  Council  Plan,  prepared  every  four  years,  delivers  the  action  Council will take to help achieve this vision.

All community members, community groups  and  organisations  are  encouraged  to  use  2031,  reference  it,  share  it  and  deliver action to achieve the vision.

Council will provide information annually on how we are progressing towards this vision.

Our Vision: "Happy people, healthy environment and thriving communities.”

Theme 1: Communities

Our Vision: "We know and support each other and have a strong sense of community belonging. Diversity is respected and there are many social and community activities providing opportunities for all people to interact.

Theme 2: Services and Infrastructure

Our Vision: "Wellington has a built environment that is sustainable, appropriate, accessible and responsive to the community. Transport connects people to communities and places. Events and services support our strong communities"

Our Vision: "Wellington has a broad choice of local training, education and holistic learning and development options that lead to meaningful employment and personal fulfilment."

Theme 5: Economy

Our Vision: "Wellington has a wealth of diverse industries providing employment opportunities for all. There is growth in the Wellington population and economy which is balanced with the preservation of our natural environment and connected communities"
