The ‘Moira 2035’ Community Vision was prepared in accordance with section 88 of the Local Government Act 2020 and Council’s Community Engagement Policy. The vision describes the community’s aspirations for the future of the municipality.
A Project Team was established and worked with a consultant to undertake the development of the Community Vision and supported the process through community consultation and recruitment of a diverse and inclusive Community Panel.
The Community Vision was adopted by Council on 27 October 2021.
