Congratulations to Whittlesea City Council and Bass Coast Shire Council which won the 2017 LGPro Corporate Planners Network Awards.
Whittlesea City Council took out the 2017 Corporate and Community Planning Award for their Orchard Road Community Centre Project Partnership Project.
This project was the result of a partnership between the Council and the YMCA to deliver a new community centre which is providing services that surpass the capacity of either organisation to deliver in a standalone facility of this scale.
This model has created new knowledge in partnership management, legal structures, capital works financing, project management and integrated services delivery agreements.
Bass Coast Shire Council who won the Best Practice and Innovation in Council Plan Development Award for their Council Plan Community Engagement.
The process used demonstrated the greatest breadth of any engagement campaign the Council has ever undertaken and it set a standard and expectation for community engagement going forward.
It also created opportunities for the newly elected Council to develop and extend their relationships with the community and raise the bar on Council’s community engagement processes.
