Implementation of the Coburg 2020 Structure Plan
Council have adopted a place management approach to managing change and have appointed a place manager for each Council structure plan.
Place management is the mechanism for managing the wide range of issues, challenges and opportunities that face an activity area every day. It is a management approach that enables issues to be pursued in an integrated, coordinated way to achieve the economic, social and environmental potential of an activity area.
This approach recognises the complexity of managing change in Coburg and the need to focus on both the big picture and improving and influencing day-to-day service delivery.
