Council Plan goes digital

Issued Wednesday 12 July 2017

The City of Casey’s 2017-21 Council Plan has been transformed into a digital edition, outlining how Council will strive to achieve the ambitious title of Australia’s most liveable city.

The Council Plan was developed through Council’s biggest community engagement exercise, the Casey People’s Panel and Casey Next.

The digital version will foster continual engagement and allow residents to track the progress of Council’s eight key strategic objectives, as well as provide ongoing feedback.

City of Casey Mayor Cr Sam Aziz encouraged people to visit the website and see for themselves how we will deliver these priorities to the community.

“Our Council Plan for the next four years is driven by the expectations and the needs of our residents. The 54 Casey People’s Panel members helped identify these priorities, and will be part of the delivery of a number of key objectives to put the City of Casey ahead of the rest.

“As the biggest and one of the fastest growing municipalities in the state, we want to ensure that we are continually catering to the needs of our rapidly expanding community,” the Mayor said.

The implementation of the website aligns with Council’s objective to become more efficient and effective and will enable visitors to access Council’s strategic documents.

Council also intends to build its Annual Action Plan into the website and will report on the progress of its strategies and objectives against this Plan. This is a long term development which will be implemented over the next six months.

This year Council will continue to evolve and expand its digital services, including the delivery of:

  • Completely new content on Council’s website – casey.vic.gov.au
  • Further enhancements to the Bunjil Place website
  • Strengthening its data governance to ensure customer information is handled in the most secure way possible
  • Introduce data analytics to help decision making and long-term planning
