The Coober Pedy 2030 (CP30) Town Plan project was developed as follows:
On Monday 15 April 2019 a Town Meeting was held at which Tim Jackson, the District Council of Coober Pedy Administrator, proposed that a community plan be developed to identify ways for the town to move forward. At this meeting three areas requiring action, and key to the future of Coober Pedy, were identified. These were economic development, the environment and the social aspects of the community. On the basis of these three areas of community action three attendant working groups were established.
An Interim Steering Group was then formed to oversee the establishment and outcomes of the three working groups, and to enable cross-pollenisation of the ideas generated through each group and to maximise opportunities for the groups to work together on issues of joint concern. A “meet & greet”event was held on Wednesday 26 June 2019 at which “leads” were nominated for each working group. This was followed by a workshop on 14 July 2019 to identify what the working groups would be doing. Both these events were facilitated by Moira Were.
Following the workshop, the “Interim” Steering Group was replaced with a “Permanent” Steering Committee consisting of the Chair, the Lead of each working group and one other member of each working group.

In May 2020 the following draft documents were prepared:
