STRATEGIES & PLANS 

The Shire of Carnarvon’s Planning and Reporting framework is the strategic direction for the Shire, providing a primary source of guidance for the organisation and the community.  

The Shire of Carnarvon is committed to using this strategic framework to strengthen the linkages between community aspirations, financial capacity and practical service delivery. This framework is required by all Local Government authorities to ensure that priorities and objectives are delivered based on a community established vision for the future. 

Council reviews and updates its Strategic Community Plan and Corporate Business Plan and subsequent plans in accordance with S5.56 (1) of the Local Government Act 1995 and regulation 19C (4) of the Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996.
