Yarriambiack Shire Council is now taking expressions of interest for West Vic Business’ 2024 Town Strategy Program, commencing in February.

The program, which is fully subsidised through West Vic Business's successful FRRR Drought Preparedness grant, will be free to all participants.  The program will encourage all to work collaboratively together and key stakeholders, to build an effective strategic plan to help build their town.  The focus and concept of this program is that a town or city is a business in its own right, and strategic planning could and should be applied in the same manner.  George Laicos and his team at Spark Strategy will facilitate the program, which will be delivered via zoom to accommodate the geographical spread of the cohort, however there will be one in person gathering mid year for project updates, and to celebrate progress.  


West Vic Business are committed to bringing community and councils together to build effective and cohesive relationships, and this program has been developed to help build the foundations for such.  The Town Strategy Program follows on from the incredibly successful Town Strategy Masterclass that was held in early 2023, and we ask that you provide the names and email contacts for the following within your town:

  • community groups
  • action groups
  • progress associations
  • business groups

For more information or to register an expression of interest, contact Community Strengthening Coordinator Tom Huf at or 0439 264 506.
