An autonomous, prosperous and sustainable community and council


We develop strategic plans to set priorities for our operations and guide our budgetary management.

At a higher level, our strategic plans fit within the 20-year Torres Strait and Northern Peninsula Regional Plan.

We run to a five-year Corporate Plan. To implement the vision, goals and objectives in the Corporate Plan, we also follow an Operational Plan each year.

The Operational Plan sets out our major projects and is aligned with our annual budget. Our Corporate Plan and Operational Plan are approved by Council by resolution through the Council meeting process.

We also develop and regularly review plans for:

  • disaster management
  • asset management
  • long-term community planning.
