Stage One: Community consultation and engagement
6 March to 7 April 2017
The Community Strategic Plan is a community owned plan for the future of the Tamworth region. It is underpinned by data gathered through Tamworth Regional Council’s engagement activities, including online surveys, direct mail outs, electronic newsletters, pop-up engagement stalls located in high traffic areas including the upcoming agricultural shows in Tamworth, Manilla and Barraba. Social media, media relations, council working groups, stakeholder workshops, employee focus groups and the new concept ‘coffee with Council’ where members of the community are invited to drop in and have a coffee with Council at key locations across the region.
We want to know what you think about achievements to date and we want to hear your vision for the future of the Tamworth region.

Stage Two: Compile feedback, analyse data and draft plan
7 April to 18 April 2017
Once consultations are complete and data analysed, we will develop a revised Community Strategic Plan that will take us to 2027, and together with our Four Year Delivery Plan 2017-2023, our Resourcing Strategy 2017-2023 and our Annual Operating Plane 2017-2018 we will submit to Council for its endorsement at the 26 April 2017 Council meeting.
Stage Three: Public Exhibition
27 April to 25 May 2017
During the public exhibition stage, we invite comments and feedback on the revised Community Strategic Plan. The aim is capture as much information on the priorities for the next ten years so we can work together with the community and stakeholders to advocate and deliver on those priorities.
Stage Four: Review and Finalise Plan
29 May to 19 June 2017
During this stage Tamworth Regional Council will review the feedback received on the revised Community Strategic Plan and incorporate changes as appropriate to ensure the final plan represents the entire community’s view and aspirations.
This stage is where the plan is finalised and will be presented to Council at the 27 June 2017 Council meeting. Following endorsement by Council we will start working with the community and stakeholders to implement the plan.
The existing Keychange 2023 plan identifies four key themes that will remain unchanged in the revised plan:
- A Spirit of Community
- A Prosperous Region
- An Accessible Region
- A Region for the Future
