You’ve spoken. And we’ve listened.

  • 8 Council Advisory Groups
  • 13 community consultations over the past 18 months
  • 2,564 Community Participants
  • 22,300 words captured as comments

Our Council Plan 2022-32 is the result of an extensive period of consultation with our community over the past 18 months. The below graphic illustrates how your input and feedback collected during our various consultations and Community Scorecard survey have influenced our planning.

It sets out our 10-year vision, how we will achieve and resource our priorities and how we will measure and report our success.

We think it’s a much simpler and easier way of letting our community know what to expect from us and combines the legislative and reporting requirements of our Strategic Community Plan & Corporate Business Plan of the past.

But have we got it right? We’re looking for a final tick-off from our community to ensure the course we are charting is the direction toward 2050 you intended.

A period of public comment is now open and we would welcome your feedback. Printed copies of the Council Plan are also available for viewing at our Administration Centre, Eaton, Dardanup Office and Eaton Community Library.

Submissions are open until Monday, 6 June and can be:

Posted: PO BOX 7016, Eaton, WA, 6232

The following information is provided to assist you with understanding in more detail what the process of creating our Council Plan has involved.


What is the Council Plan 2022-32?

Outlines vision, values, aspirations and priorities for the next 10 years, taking into account the Shire of Dardanup’s other plans, information and resourcing capabilities.

It combines our Strategic Community Plan and Corporate Business Plan of the past into one succinct document. It follows the Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework guidelines and satisfies a legislative requirement for all local governments to have a plan to shape the future.

It is our blueprint for success and sets out objectives and priorities under five core performance areas of:

  • Community
  • Environment
  • Amenity
  • Prosperity
  • Leadership

While the Plan sets a 10-year direction, it will be fully reviewed again in consultation with the community in 2026.
