Strategic Community Plan 2023 - 2033

The Shire of Beverley Strategic Community Plan maps out our vision and represents a clear direction for Council. 

Council has recently completed a new Strategic Community Plan (Adopted November 2023). 

This Strategic Community Plan has been developed using previous plans, data, and surveys as its foundation. It has been ‘checked’ and priorities reconfirmed by the community and Council to ensure continuity and demonstrated progress towards our vision and purpose.

This Strategic Community Plan guides Council for the next 10yrs and it has a key place in the Shire’s delivery and management of services and infrastructure.

Since the previous plan was adopted in 2018, the Shire has achieved:


Construction of Moort Wabiny Park

Town Hall upgrades to the kitchen, flooring and entries

Construction of the Lesser Hall Courtyard

Upgrades to a number of Hunt Road Village Units

Completion of the Swimming Pool Feasibility Study and completion of design upgrades

Continued road upgrades including bitumising of town site roads, widening of gravel roads.

Completion and continuation of 5 year recordkeeping plan

Our Strategic Community Plan is based on community input and our research to ensure our future is sustainable.
