Alexandrina 2040: Shaping our Future

Help shape the future of Alexandrina!

Over the next 12 months, Alexandrina Council will be reviewing the strategic management plans which guide everything we do.

Planning for the future is a big task and we can’t do it alone.

Your ideas are important to us! To plan effectively for the future, we need to know as much as possible about your long-term needs, hopes and priorities.

We want to hear what you love about Alexandrina, what challenges and opportunities you think our community will face between now and 2040, and your big ideas for making Alexandrina an even better place to live, study, work and play!

The information we gather will be used to prepare an updated Community Strategic Plan for 2020-2040 as well as our Long Term Financial Plan and our Infrastructure & Asset Management Plan.

There are lots of ways you can be a part of the conversation, from community workshops, to online discussions and surveys, to having a face-to-face chat with Council staff at community events. For more information about how to get involved in the Alexandrina 2040 consultation process, take a look at our FAQs.

We look forward to hearing from you!

    Community Values

    Right now you can still tell us what you think about the community values listed in Council’s current Community Strategic Plan 2014-23. We want to know if these values are still important to you and your view on whether Council is achieving outcomes consistent with these values.

    We have a roadshow of Village Conversations and a Participatory Budgeting survey planned for February-March 2020. Full details of all upcoming events will be listed here soon. We look forward to seeing you there!

    Consultation on draft Plans - August/September 2020

    The last step in the process will be formal consultation on our draft set of strategic plans in August-September 2020. The draft Plans will be informed by everything you’ve told us between October 2019 – March 2020.
