Planning for the future of the Knox Economy

The Knox Community and Council Plan 2017-2021 sets a vision for the City of Knox and identifies our eight community and council goals that will drive Council activities over the next four years

This Plan has been formulated in partnership with our community. It provides a guide for individuals, businesses, local groups and other levels of government on strategic priorities for Knox. These priorities have been developed from information gathered through a community engagement process, supported by an analysis of State of Knox data, and with reference to key government and social policies.

The Plan is the strategic framework for all Council plans and activities. It meets Council’s legislative requirement to produce a Council Plan and also meets the obligations of the Public Health & Wellbeing Act 2008 by identifying goals and strategies based on available evidence and community engagement for the Knox community to achieve maximum health and wellbeing. The Strategic Resource Plan, which forms part of this Plan, is a rolling 10 year plan that outlines the financial and non-financial resources the Council requires to achieve our goals and strategies described in the Plan.
