COMMUNITY plans to help shape the future of Kew, Kendall, Herons Creek, Lorne and Rollands Plains will be presented for endorsement by council tonight (October 21).

The community plans are designed to identify each community's vision, priorities and actions to achieve positive change, whilst recognising the unique qualities of each community and the challenges posed by significant forecast growth.

The plans will enable council to better assess these priorities across the entire local government area and assist communities to deliver projects that they have identified as priorities for their community.

The community plans for the two communities of Kew, Kendall, Herons Creek and Lorne and Rollands Plains have now been completed as a result of extensive consultation with the relevant communities and development of the plans with Community-Council Action Teams (CCAT) for each area.

The Kew, Kendall, Herons Creek and Lorne area vision is for a vibrant well-connected place for all ages to live, work and grow. It is a place that celebrates its local stories and retains the past, while moving to the future, valuing its natural environment and its rural village character.

The Rollands Plains Community Plan aims to respectfully and sustainably develop agricultural and tourist industries, and provide for those who pursue a rural lifestyle while still needing to work in the nearby towns.

The community also included that new residents are welcomed into a tolerant and accepting social fabric.

The plans will go before the October 21 council meeting which commences at 5.30pm and can be viewed via council's YouTube channel.
