Have your say and shape the future of the City of Parramatta

City of Parramatta’s draft Operational Plan 2017/18 is planned to be on public exhibition in early May and Council is inviting the community to provide feedback.

This important plan sets out the proposed actions, projects and services that Council will provide to its community, and outlines Council’s budget and proposed rates, fees and charges for the new financial year.

The draft Operational Plan has been prepared with direction from the City’s new vision and priorities.

Council plans to deliver more than $230 million on essential services, quality assets and infrastructure including:

  • waste collection
  • community events
  • improving roads
  • footpaths, cycle
  • stormwater and sewerage networks
  • protecting the built and natural environment
  • maintaining community facilities
  • providing open space and recreation programs
  • and many other activities that help make Parramatta a great place to live.

A series of drop-in sessions will be held throughout the Local Government Area and community members are welcome to ask questions and discuss the plan with Council staff. Proposed locations and times are:*
