At its Special meeting held on 28 June 2016, the Mansfield Shire Council revised Council Plan 2013-17 (including Strategic Resource Plan 2015-19) was adopted by Council. 

General information about the Council Plan
Whilst the Council Plan sets the agenda for the next four years, in accordance with section 125 of the Local Government Act 1989 Council must consider, at least once in each financial year, whether the current Plan requires any adjustment in respect of the remaining period of Plan.  It has subsequently been reviewed and updated to ensure Council's projects and objectives continue to be in line with the community's needs and Council's broader vision.

The 2013-17 Council Plan was first adopted on 20 June 2013.

The Plan outlines the directions that the local government of Mansfield Shire takes over the four years from 2013-17 following the election of a current Council.  The Plan sets out Council's strategic objectives and priorities and also identifies the way in which policies are developed and implemented.

A copy of the revised Plan can be downloaded using the link to the right of this page.  Hard copies are also available  upon request from the municipal office, 33 Highett Street, during normal office hours. 

Any person requiring further information in relation to the revised Council Plan 2013-17 should contact Council’s Governance Co-ordinator, on 5775 8555.
