Strategic Community Plan

Talk to me…Katanning, is the community engagement campaign that will be used to develop the Shire of Katanning Strategic Community Plan 2022-2032.

All local governments in Western Australia are required to prepare a Strategic Community Plan. The plans undergo a major review at least once every four years and the Shire’s current plan is due for its review.

Your previous input to the last Strategic Community Plan has led to more than 70 different outcomes including the Welcome Precinct and All ages Playground, Lake Ewlyamartup upgrades, work at the Waste Transfer station, artwork, Eco Lane, grants programs, youth and senior programs, services and events that support our diverse community and support for the Premier Mill development.

Talk to me…Katanning is an opportunity for the community to get involved and share their ideas – big or small, on their vision and aspirations for Katanning.
