Parramatta 2038

Pretty Garden with red and pink flowers and lots of green

Parramatta 2038 is our City's Community Strategic Plan. It is a long term-vision for the Parramatta Local Government Area, links to the long-term future of Sydney and outlines how we can spread the benefits locally and regionally. Parramatta 2038 was adopted by Council in June 2013.

As a result of the Proclamation in May 2016, the City of Parramatta has changed. In fact, we have 30% more residents and cover more land area than before. The Council will review and update our Community Strategic Plan for the new City of Parramatta over the coming 18 months.
