Horsham Rural City Talks - Our Future

Horsham Rural City Talks is a community-wide conversation kicked off by Council to give every member of our community the opportunity to discuss and share their views about our shared future to help shape our Community Vision.

The Community Vision is produced and owned by the community. It will be used by Council to guide strategic planning and decision making about the future of the municipality. It will capture what our residents value most about their community and set out the vision for Horsham Rural City Council in 2041.

The Community Vision will be developed over the next few months.  People from every corner of the municipality have been encouraged to have conversations and share their thinking with us or to complete a survey. A Community Panel has been established, involving people from across the region, to consider all the input and draft the Community Vision. We know there are high expectations and that many people in our communities are wanting to work with Council in a different way on things that are important. So we're hoping this is the start of a new way to engage with Council and with each other to shape the future of our municipality.

The community panel's first meeting was scheduled for Sunday 30 May unfortunately due to COVID restrictions the panel meeting has been postponed.
