Our previous strategic plan, the 2020 Vision covered a period from 2014-2020. We had hoped to have a new strategy in place covering 2020-2030 but this has been delayed due to coronavirus as it is our desire to undertake community workshops as an early part of the plan development.

In the meantime, we’ve published this list of our priorities and projects for 2021 – this is all on top of our ‘business as usual’ operations and events.
