Campaspe: Thriving Together

Kyabram Allan Street

You can shape the future of Campaspe

Council has completed an extensive community consultation program, where the community provided feedback about each community's future aspirations.

Subscribe to this page for updates as they occur.


About the project

In 2015, Council in conjunction with its communities set a vision for the future; ‘We want to be strong, supportive, vibrant and sustainable.

Now five years later it’s time to ask the community again what it aspires to and what are the issues that Council must address with and for its communities.

Council is seeking feedback from the residents and visitors of Campaspe to check if the issues identified back in 2015 are still relevant and together what can we do to address them. 

The feedback provided will enable Council to set clear strategic directions and support the alignment of services and assets to best meet the ongoing needs of our communities.

The result of all the hard work will be four key documents that will guide all future Council plans and actions:

  • Community Vision
  • Four-year Council Plan
  • Long-Term Financial Plan
  • Long-Term Asset Plan
