Plan for the Future

Throughout 2020/21, the Shire of Derby/West Kimberley (SDWK) has been raising the volume as part of its community consultation while undertaking a significant review of its Strategic Community Plan (SCP) 2012-2021 and associated documents.

Strategic community plans must be reviewed every ten years and as part of the process, the SDWK committed to reaching as many of its 7,730 residents as possible with opportunity to provide feedback.

Since July 2020, the SDWK has heard from over 1,700 respondents and engaged with over 3,000 people including representatives from agencies, organisations and groups. 

The Draft SCP has now been developed and is ready for further review from mid-December 2020 until late March 2021, ahead of final adoption by Council on 29 April 2021.

Although the SCP is about more than a vision statement, the proposed new vision sums up an exciting decade ahead:

A place where people want to live, invest, visit and return to.

We proudly invite interested residents and stakeholders to review the Draft Strategic Community Plan 2021-30 below and provide any additional feedback.
