This plan will update the previous City of Greater Shepparton Strategy Plan 1996 which formed the basis for the current Municipal Strategic Statement (MSS). The MSS is the local strategy component of the Greater Shepparton Planning Scheme.
A key element of the preparation of this plan was the integrated planning approach, and the process and extent of community engagement involving all stakeholders.
This engagement was achieved from a number of initiatives to obtain a depth of understanding of issues from both technical and personal perspectives. The feedback from the community consultation assisted in the development of visions for the municipality.
