RESIDENTS may receive a phone call as part of council’s future planning process.
Council has called on residents to help guide the shire’s future after councillors supported a review of the community strategic plan, Wingecarribee 2031.
The first stage of the review will involve a random telephone and online survey.
Micromex Research will carry out these surveys between October 17 and November 20.
The online survey is intended for residents, business owners and community organisations.
Council general manager Ann Prendergast said council wanted as many people as possible to participate in the review and share their thoughts.
“Council’s community strategic plan is one of most important documents for our shire,” Ms Prendergast said.
The community strategic plan is the shire’s leading planning document and details the community’s long-term vision for the region.
“While Council is responsible for developing and reviewing the Plan, its implementation is a shared responsibility.”
She said other partners such as state agencies and community groups had a role in delivering the long-term objectives of the plan.
“Only with feedback from our shire’s residents, community groups and other agencies will we get a genuine picture of the priorities and aspirations that matter most to our local community,” Ms Prendergast said.
Further opportunities to contribute to the plan will follow in early 2017.
