Long term community vision

The Long Term Community Vision sets out the direction for what Bass Coast will look like in the year 2040, the Council Plan outlines the actions that will be taken to work towards the Vision during the current Council Term, while the10-year Financial Plan provides the detail on how investment will be made to deliver on both the Long Term Community Vision and the Council Plan.

Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari said that it is really important to give the community the opportunity to help shape these important documents. "We want to know what the community wants to see in Bass Coast, not just now, but into the future as well," Cr Tessari said.

Have your say during the engagement period

"Long term planning is a huge part of Council’s role and it’s really important for us to get the community involved in setting the direction we will take over our four-year term. I would encourage everyone to consider having their say during the engagement period – we want to hear from young and old, residents, ratepayers, visitors – anyone who has an interest in what the future holds for Bass Coast," Cr Tessari concluded."
