Wujal Wujal Plan

The Wujal Wujal Plan is a Council plan that aims to support the community’s vision for the support and development of the township of Wujal Wujal and surrounding region encompassing our traditional lands.

Wujal Wujal’s vision

Wujal Wujal is an active, safe, progressive and healthy community with increased participation in sports and improved economic opportunities available for the locals. Our people are culturally rich, and appreciate and value the traditional Eastern Kuku Yalanji knowledge, language, skills and connection to the natural landscape and resources.

The scenic landscapes, rainforest and the Bloomfield River are the traditional grounds of Eastern Kuku Yalanji people. The lands and rivers are protected, valued and managed sustainably. Land is limited and community development is determined by a collaborative partnership between all stakeholders, representing the community and providing a transparent decision-making process.

The Council’s Plan

The Council’s plan for local development, programmes and projects is outlined in the five-year Corporate Plan 2013 to 2018. The Corporate Plan was developed in close consultation with the community, including face-to-face meetings throughout the shire. It provides the Council and its teams with a strategic business plan and focus, setting out the priorities and plans for service delivery over the five-year timeframe.

Issues covered by the plan include:

  • Council aims, objectives and strategies
  • Council programmes
  • Community services
  • Corporate and technical services
  • Building and enterprises
  • Developments
  • Community consultation
  • Budgets
  • Performance reviews and progress reports
