Knox Community and Council Plans

The Community and Council Plan 2017-2021 is our commitment to make Knox a great place to live, work and visit. We created the Plan with our community and identified eight goals to focus on for the future. These goals guide Council's current activities, policies and programs of work.

This plan is due to expire on 30 June 2021, and work has begun to inform the development of our new plans for the future.

Shaping the future of Knox - Community and Council Plans

We’ve developed five draft vision statements based on your words and ideas. We want you to tell us which one you think best reflects your aspirations for the future of Knox.

Over the last few months, we’ve been seeking community input to help us develop our new Community and Council plans. The Community Plan will include a Community Vision statement, which describes how we as a community want Knox to look and feel over the next 10 years. The Council Plan will outline what part Council will play in achieving that vision.

Through our forums and focus groups, you told us what you love about Knox and what you want it to be like in the future. We’ve listened and come up with five draft vision statements that we think reflect this. We’d like you to choose your preferred statement and tell us why.

Have your say

What we’ve heard so far

Over the last few months, we’ve had many conversations with community members and stakeholders about the future of Knox. Our forums and focus groups centred around questions such as:

  • What could a vision for Knox look like?
  • Are the goals in the current plan still the right ones?
  • How will we know if we’ve achieved success in some of these areas?
  • As a community, what should our priorities be for the next 10 years?
  • How can Council contribute to our success?

We appreciate the time and energy people have given. We had some interesting discussions, and heard some great stories and fantastic ideas, all of which will inform the development of the new Community Plan 2021-2031 and Council Plan 2021-2025.

Here’s a snapshot of what we’ve done so far.

For more detailed information about the engagement activities we’ve done to date, have a look at our consultation page.

What’s next...

We’ll be continuing our engagement activities over the coming months, including:

  • Identifying the health and wellbeing priorities of our community.
  • Further engagement with stakeholders and partners to inform the development of the Community Plan, identifying their contribution to the community vision.
  • Working with the new Council to identify their priorities and develop the draft plans.
  • Asking you to choose which vision statement best reflects your wish for the future of Knox.
  • Developing draft plans and testing these with you to see if they reflect what you told us.

About the current Plan

We created the Community and Council Plan with you, our community. The Plan is a roadmap for Council, community, local groups and businesses to improve life in Knox.

It outlines our community's priorities and meets a legislative need for a Council Plan and a Municipal Public Health & Wellbeing Plan.

Developing the Plan

Detailed research, community feedback and the following reports shaped the Plan:
