Cobden’s original Twenty 20 Vision community plan was developed through the latter half of 2010 and finalised in March 2011. It outlined 11 strategies and 65 actions under six key themes. The Plan was reviewed in 2014 and priorities were confirmed and reset. A further review was conducted in 2018.

Cobden is currently working on the following top priorities:

  1. Encourage young people to get involved
  2. Develop caravan dump site, caravan park, free camping
  3. Create a community noticeboard for all activities
  4. Upgrade Victoria Street/ improve traffic management
  5. Build ‘Terminal 1’ at Cobden Airstrip
  6. Develop local tourism (Visitor Information Centre) (ongoing)
  7. Maintain completed projects
