Councils develop a hierarchy of plans which fall-out of the Community Strategic Plan. The diagram below illustrates the framework.
Under the IPR framework, the Community Strategic Plan must adequately address the quadruple bottom line – Social, Economic, Environmental and Civic Leadership.
In addition, Councils must prepare and implement a Community Engagement Strategy for engagement with local community stakeholders in the review and development of the Community Strategic Plan.
