Strategic Planning


A community for everyone

Our mission 

To work with the community in providing and facilitating the provision of services that enhance the quality of life of all Shire residents.


Inverell Shire Council’s planned future direction is divided into three (3) separate documents, each interdependent. Our Community Strategic PlanDelivery Plan and Operational Plan are integrated plans which will enable Council to meet the future needs of our community.

The Community Strategic Plan is our primary strategic document, which sets out our shared goals and aspirations (‘Destinations‘) for the future, including the Council’s mission and purpose.

The Delivery Plan is a four (4) year plan outlining the ‘Term Achievements’, which align directly to the Destinations. The Delivery Plan provides greater details on the strategies to be used to achieve progress towards the Destinations.

The Delivery Plan is reviewed annually to establish which objectives set out in the Community Strategic Plan can be achieved with Council’s available resources and an Operational Plan of actions for the coming year is created. This ensures that Council’s long-term planning is consistent with the current and future needs community.

The Operational Plan outlines our annual Objectives, including activities undertaken by Council and the officers responsible. The document includes information on Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) and measurable outcomes.

The Resource Strategy outlines Council’s capacity to manage assets and deliver services that support the three integrated plans above. The Resource Strategy includes three (3) key elements – a Workforce Management Plan, an Asset Management Plan, and a Long Term Financial Plan.

For ease of navigation, each document is divided into Destinations along with a corresponding colour. The below graphic illustrates the format used across all five Destinations.
