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 – October 2019 to March 2020

    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.

    Listening Posts – October/November 2019

    During October and November, Council’s strategy team held Listening Posts at 13 community events, held 4 community focus groups in Goolwa and Strathalbyn, visited 7 schools across the District, held workshops with more than 100 council staff and received ideas from more than 1100 people. A report on what we heard was released in January 2020 – you can read it here.

    Village Conversations– February/March 2020

    In 2019, more than 1100 people shared their ideas for making Alexandrina an even better place to live, work and play. Through February and March 2020, we held a series of Village Conversations to inform the community what we heard about their vision for the future of Alexandrina and to talk with other local people about how you would prioritise Council spending to achieve community goals. These facilitated workshops provided lots of opportunity for community members to share their hopes and ideas for the future of our community.
