Glenelg Shire 2040 Community Plan

Front Page

The Glenelg Shire 2040 Community Plan and Vision provides a shared vision for community members, businesses and government to work towards over the next 20 years.

The Plan will be used to guide the future decisions of Council and the actions of our engaged and hardworking community.

Development of the Plan

Development of this Plan was supported by community members across four Community Reference Groups. These groups have played an important role in shaping the visions for each region and guided the development of the document.

We would also like to thank and acknowledge the more than 1,600 people that participated in the project, helping us to understand how to best serve our community.

Overall Vision

"By 2040, Glenelg Shire is known as a very liveable region of Australia, featuring rich Indigenous heritage, outstanding natural beauty, and providing access to diverse economic and educational opportunities."

Priority Themes

The six priority themes listed in the document are:

  1. Our Natural Environment.
  2. Our Industry, Education and Employment.
  3. Our Health and Wellbeing.
  4. Our Access, Transport and Technology.
  5. Our Lifestyle, Neighbourhoods and Culture.
  6. Our Voice and Action.

This plan is a living document, developed at the start of our 20-year journey. Priority areas and actions will be reviewed to ensure this plan remains relevant and in line with community aspirations and national trends.

While some priorities can be delivered sooner in the near future, some actions will take longer than 20 years to achieve.
