This one year plan was adopted by Council on the 9 December 2015.  

The plan provides Council with a framework and vision for reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.  

It lists 13 actions and is structured around 4 themes; Relationships, Respect, Opportunities and Tracking Progress.  

Reconciliation Australia has endorsed the plan and this endorsement comes with a responsibility to report annually on the achievement of actions.
