Knox Community and Council Plans

Over the last 18 months, Council worked with the community and various stakeholders to develop the following plans:

  • Community Plan 2021-31 - developed with our community and stakeholders, this plan includes a Community Vision and describes what we all need to focus on over the next 10 years to get there.
  • Council Plan 2021-25 (including the Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan) - outlines the part Council will play in achieving the vision over the next 4 years.It also includes the Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan. This ensures that supporting, protecting and improving the health and wellbeing of our community is at the forefront of everything we do.
  • Financial Plan 2021-2031 - provides a long-term view of the resources Council will need and how they’ll be used over the life of the plans.

Council adopted these plans on 25 October 2021.
