Community Land & Business Plan
The Wagonga Local Aboriginal Land Council (WLALC) works for the benefit of the community.
The WLALC established a Community Land and Business Plan (CLBP) which puts in writing the community’s needs and provides a framework to help WLALC achieve specific goals and financial stability. The overall aim of the plan is to empower the community; socially, culturally and financially. The WLALC CLBP identifies our vision, our values and the main goals of the WLALC for the next five years from 2014 to 2018 (currently in the 3rd year) and includes core issues of; community, culture, employment, housing, education, health and the environment. The plan puts forward the Action Plans and updated outcomes that will assist us to achieve these goals.
On 10 June 2016 WLALC reviewed and updated their Community Land and Business Plan (CLBP) at a workshop which involved the members of WLALC and the surrounding Aboriginal community. The CLBP will reflect the core issues identified by the community including land management, housing, education and training, employment opportunities and the preservation and promotion of Aboriginal culture. It will also recognises the financial imperative of WLALC to manage its land and waterways in a long term and sustainable way, so that the income can be put towards our community service programs; to employ more staff, and develop business opportunities. The CLBP is a five (5) year plan from 2014 to 2018, and it is currently in its second year.
The successful implementation of this Plan will enable the WLALC to move into a new phase of financial and economic stability and to provide more services to members, particularly those services that will empower the Aboriginal community socially, culturally and financially.
Since 2014 the Chief Executive Officer of WLALC has achieved a significant amount of the CLBP’s actions which have been support and acknowledged by the members.
