Regional Strategic Alignments


Communities across the Pilbara are diverse and unique, and each Local Governments Strategic Community Plan is developed to reflect its individual qualities. However as each plan identifies long-term visions, values, aspirations and priorities for its communities, each member’s plans are likely to reflect a degree of regional similarity.

An opportunity exists to examine each of the Pilbara Local Governments strategic documents, to identify similarities and to create awareness of regional focus points. In this process, alignment with other key documents and strategies should be undertaken to understand alignment opportunities with key regional stakeholders.


By undertaking this analysis, greater regional awareness will be created as well increasing the potential for significant and/or meaningful collaboration on regional focus points.
