In 2010 Scenic Rim Regional Council prepared two strategic plans - a Social Plan 2010-2020 and a Sport and Recreation Plan 2010-2020. Both plans recommended a review in 2015. As the two plans shared many common goals and objectives, the review resulted in the merging of the two documents into the Scenic Rim Health and Wellbeing Plan 2015-2020 which better reflects the social, health, sport and recreation needs of the region.
The two original plans will remain important reference tools for Council and the community. They contain valuable consultation information and data to track overall trends and performance.
