Established in January 2015, Advance Heathcote Inc works to advance the liveability and community wellbeing of Heathcote & Districts.

About Advance Heathcote Inc

Heathcote & District community has had a Community Plan in operation since 2007. The Community Plan has been revised several times during this period and guided the development of community projects over these years. Early in 2014, the Heathcote Partnership Group initiated a review and consultation with the community to assess achievements of the Revised 2012 Community Plan, community needs and new projects which contributed to the development the 2014 – 2017 Community Plan.

In January 2015, Advance Heathcote Incorporated was established as not-for-profit association as the governance model to implement and drive the Community Plan.
