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.
