Don’t miss your chance to have your say on SDWK’s future

The Shire of Derby/West Kimberley is currently in the middle of a very exciting community engagement program as part of developing its next 10-year Strategic Community Plan for 2021, and wants you to have your say.

Shire President Geoff Haerewa said the Shire is trying to reach the 8000 residents and ratepayers of the Derby and Fitzroy communities.

“Keep an eye out for the many opportunities to provide feedback whether an online survey; or face-to-face at the shops, markets, and community and business events, Cr Haerewa said.

“Our feedback postcards have also proven very popular as an easy way to have your say for those who prefer.

“The SCP engagement activities began in July with the community launch events in Derby and Fitzroy Crossing.

“All local governments in WA must have a Strategic Community Plan and we want all members of our community to embrace their future and provide their feedback.

“This is a unique opportunity for all residents, ratepayers, employees, visitors and stakeholders to have their say on the Shire’s future aspirations and priorities.

 “Once we’ve analysed the feedback from this initial round, we’ll then go back to the community to make sure we’ve got it right before the Strategic Community Plan is officially adopted by Council.”
