|Title:||Southern New England Social and Community Plan 2009 - Covering Local Government Authorities: Armidale Dumaresq, Guyra, Uralla and Walcha||Contributor(s):||Horacek, Stefan (author); Branagan, Marty (author) ; Scott, John (author) ; Reavell, Ron (author)||Corporate Author:||New England Strategic Alliance of Councils (NESAC)||Publication Date:||2009||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/11078||Abstract:||The Southern New England (SNE) Social and Community Plan is a guide to collaborative, integrated planning involving the three spheres of government, the community and commercial sectors. The Plan is based on social justice principles such as: • Equity - fairness in resource distribution, particularly for those most in need • Access - fairer access for everyone to the economic resources and services essential to meeting their basic needs and improving their quality of life • Rights - recognition and promotion of civil rights • Participation - better opportunities for genuine participation and consultation about decisions affecting people's lives. The Plan is also aimed at improving the accountability of decision-makers, and should help the councils, in conjunction with their communities meet the state government's social justice commitments. Preparation of a social and community plan is required at least every five years, and as with most councils, Armidale Dumaresq Council (ADC) has produced two already, one in 1999 and one in 2004, following the amalgamation of the former Armidale City and Dumaresq Shire Councils in 2000. Those Councils formerly prepared their own Plans in 1999, based on shared consultancy work on a community profile. This is the first joint Southern New England Plan, featuring Armidale Dumaresq, Walcha, Uralla and Guyra Councils. This Social Plan has aimed to identify and address the needs of the local community by: • describing who makes up the community • summarising key priority issues • assessing the effectiveness of any previous plans • recommending strategic ways for council and other government and non-government agencies to met community needs.||Publication Type:||Report||Publisher:||Armidale Dumaresq Council, Guyra Shire Council, Uralla Shire Council and Walcha Shire Council||Place of Publication:||online||Field of Research (FOR):||160512 Social Policy||HERDC Category Description:||R1 Contract Report||Other Links:||http://www.uralla.nsw.gov.au/files/uploaded/file/Development/Social%20&%20Community%20Plan/Social_and_Community_Plan_2009.pdf
