Draft 2013/2014 Shire Plan now out for comment

The Central Desert Shire Council is currently looking for submissions and feedback on its draft 2013/2014 Shire Plan.  “This is a big picture plan, it tells the story of what we want to do, what we hope to achieve over the next year” said Shire President Adrian Dixon .  “It belongs to everyone in the Central Desert region.  All the residents and the workers have played their part in this plan being put together.”

The Shire Council also wants to make sure that the services that we are providing continue to be of a high standard.  But we are also always on the look out for ways of doing things better.  The Shire is changing the way we go about our business giving more decision making power to Shire Services Managers and Coordinators in communities so that they can respond quicker to the communities’ request and needs.  

“We have also changed some of the ways we do our business to make sure we are keeping up with the reforms being brought in by the Northern Territory and Commonwealth Government.” Shire President Dixon advised.  “We think that we are pretty well placed to meet the any of the challenges presented by the reforms because we have made the smart decisions already so many of the changes Government is suggesting we are already doing.”  

The submissions on the draft 2013/2014 Shire Plan will be accepted until the 17th June 2013.
