The Shire of Harvey's draft Strategic Community Plan 2021-2031 is now open for public comment.

What is the Strategic Community Plan 2021-2031?

The Strategic Community Plan is our highest level strategic planning document that describes the community’s vision and aspirations for the Shire. It’s our plan for the future, and will guide Council decision-making in the short to medium term to ensure that all projects and activities delivered by the Shire align with our vision of Together, towards an even better lifestyle.

How was the Plan developed?

In December 2020, the Shire conducted a MARKYT Community Scorecard survey. Nearly 1,000 community members responded, giving us valuable insight into what people think the Shire does well, what it needs to improve and what people would like to see prioritised moving forward. The Community Scorecard told us that the community would like the Shire to prioritise:

  • Playgrounds, Parks and Reserves
  • Crime Prevention and Safety
  • Youth Services
  • Local Roads
  • Footpaths, Trails and Cycleways
  • Communication
  • Streetscapes, Trees and Verges
  • Mosquito and Pest Management

The Strategic Community Plan describes the goals and objectives the Shire intends to work towards in order to address the community's priority areas.

What do we need to know?

Do you feel the strategic direction outlined in the draft Plan will lead to an improvement in the above priority areas? We would appreciate you taking the time to complete the short online survey below or by using the printable version of the survey (to the right) . Alternatively you can email any queries or feedback to communityengagement@harvey.wa.gov.au or call 9729 0300 and ask to speak to the Corporate and Community Engagement Officer. We welcome your feedback, with the period of public comment closing 4pm, Friday 4 June 2021.


If you would like a paper copy of the Strategic Community Plan, please email your request to communityengagement@harvey.wa.gov.au

The document can be made available in alternative formats or languages on request.
