The Springvale Community Hub – Strategic Plan will guide the direction of the precinct for the next five years. The strategic plan will inform other plans for the site including programming and activation, venue hire, communications and open space use.
The plan will be accompanied by an annual action plan, informed by community consultation. The actions incorporated into each annual action plan will be informed by community feedback and needs or issues identified. This will be ratified through a report to Council every 12 months, including reporting on the status of each goal and measure which will also be available via the Council website.
The Strategic Plan aims to provide a direction for the Hub over the first five years, incorporating goals, aspirations and expectations while delivering on the vision 'Encouraging active participation in cultural exchange, creative celebrations and life-long learning, through a welcoming community hub that inspires learning and creative living'.
The Springvale Community Hub will be a community centred place of connection. To achieve this Council will facilitate management of the hub, working closely with the local community. This will involve taking a proactive place-based community development approach, working with individuals, community groups and other stakeholders to fulfil the vision of the hub.
