Strategic Community Plan 2020-2030
The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s Strategic Community Plan is the primary document and must be reviewed every four years, but can also be reviewed at a strategic level every two years. Council’s Strategic Community Plan was reviewed and updated throughout 2019. The Plan takes into account current and expected changes in community demographics, social issues and local, national and global influences.
The Strategic Community Plan shapes the service delivery policy of the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder for a 10-year period. The plan focuses on 5 Community Aspirations:
Community - enhance the quality of life and encourage city wide development opportunities
Economy - boost opportunities for economic development and tourism
Infrastructure - enhance the built environment and provide quality infrastructure
Leadership - ensure the City maintains strong civic leadership
Environment - protect and where possible enhance the natural environment
The Strategic Community Plan 2020-2030 was adopted at the 28 April 2020 Ordinary Council Meeting.
Corporate Business Plan
The Corporate Business Plan is the detailed implementation outline for services, key projects, capital investment and areas of advocacy over the next four financial years. The Corporate Business Plan has been broken down into the five aspirations outlined within the Strategic Community Plan and Council projects, capital investment and areas of advocacy have been listed against the relevant Strategic Initiatives. The layout of the plan has been set to help demonstrate how the Council will meet the most important local needs and ensure that the community’s vision for the City is brought to life.
Long Term Financial Plan
The Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP) is a 10 year financial projection taking into consideration income, operational and capital expenditure.

Youth Strategic Action Plan 2018-2021
The Youth Strategic Action Plan (YSAP) 2018-2021 guides how the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder will deliver its services for young people over the next three years. The YSAP is the result of a six-week consultation process undertaken with more than 500 community members in 2017. The YSAP provides a snapshot of who are young people are and the strategic aims and actions the City will undertake to address the needs and gaps identified in the plan. Three key goals are identified in the plan, those being to build confidence in our young people, to grow the capability of our young people and to foster connection between them and the wider community.
Reconciliation Action Plan
The development of the City's Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) marks an important milestone and will guide the way our organisation works with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to achieve better outcomes. Development of the RAP occurred over two years and reflects considerable planning efforts with local stakeholders including the Goldfields Land and Sea Council, City councillors and various working groups.
By publicly declaring its commitment to reconciliation, CKB can build a more prosperous future for the City. The RAP will be championed by CKB executives with support, guidance and direction from the CKB Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group. The group will be comprised of various councillors and appointed local stakeholders to ensure the right people are engaged in delivering outcomes.
Water Utility Services Plan
The Water Utility Services Plan outlines the strategic intent for delivery of wastewater and recycled water services to the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder. This plan gives effect to actions set out in the City’s Corporate Business Plan 2017-2021. More specifically, it helps give effect to two of the five community aspirations, namely infrastructure - ensuring a sustainable asset and infrastructure base, and environment - utilising water efficiently and maximise reuse potential.
The plan is an ‘informing strategy’ to the Strategic Community Plan in the context of the Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework.
