Livingstone 2050: Shaping Our Tomorrow

Livingstone Shire Council is undertaking a long-term strategic community planning project in order to gain a greater awareness of the Livingstone community's needs, aspirations, opportunities, and challenges over a thirty-year horizon.

Livingstone 2050: Shaping Our Tomorrow will draw on consultation and engagement from stakeholders across the local community, not-for-profit community organisations, advocacy groups, non-government organisations, and government agencies to ensure a comprehensive vision for the future is achieved.

This project, guided by the community, will enable Council to:

  • provide a united strategic vision for long-term sustainable growth and development in the Livingstone region;
  • provide a foundation for consistent decision making over the long term;
  • provide a basis for project and resource allocation priorities;
  • facilitate understanding of our roles and responsibilities in the community and build stronger relationships between Council and the community; and
  • give confidence to key stakeholders, investors and the public that the Council and the region knows where it is heading and how it intends to get there.

Throughout the development of the Livingstone 2050: Shaping Our Tomorrow project, stakeholders from across the community will be invited to participate in consultation and engagement activities and asked to provide comment, feedback, perspectives, and other information to guide the long-term strategic planning process.

These activities will include:

  • Telephone Survey - residents across Livingstone may be contacted by Council's representative and asked to participate in a short telephone survey. This 10-12 minute survey will enable participants from across the community to provide input into the overall project;
  • Online Survey - all members of the community will be invited to complete an online survey through Council's Get Involved platform. This survey will provide another opportunity for participants to provide input into the overall project;
  • Community Pop-up Consultations - the project team will facilitate "pop-up" community engagement sessions at prominent community events / locations that will enable participants to provide brief responses to some important questions. These consultations will also enable participants to prioritise topics important to them and their community;
    • Saturday 15 June - Yeppoon Central 8am 12noon
      - Yeppoon Lagoon Foreshore 1pm - 5pm
    • Sunday 16 June - Emu Park Markets 8am - 12noon
  • Stakeholder Engagement Workshops - the project team will also facilitate workshops to engage with stakeholder groups, likely to include the business sector, government agencies, non-government organisations, advocacy groups, and the general community. These engagement workshops will drill into specific aspects of the Livingstone community's future.

The Livingston community is encouraged to actively participate in the consultation and engagement activities associated with the project to ensure meaningful comment, feedback, and information is gained to guide development of the plan for the community's next thirty years.
