Planning for Parramatta’s Future

Communities share similar aspirations, for example a safe, healthy and pleasant place to live, a sustainable environment, opportunities for social interaction, education and employment, and access to reliable infrastructure.

The plans and policies of government, businesses and other key organisations that respond to meet the local priorities and concerns of the City of Parramatta should not exist in isolation - they are inter-connected.

The Integrated Planning & Reporting (IP&R) framework allows Council to draw various strategic plans together, understand how they interact and get the maximum leverage from their efforts by planning holistically and sustainably for the future.

Community engagement is an essential element of an effective IP&R framework. Meaningful engagement drives the development of all Council’s strategic and delivery plans, ensuring they are based on sound evidence and reflect the aspirations and priorities of the whole community. 

To find out what the community has told Council in our community engagement reports, see the Community Engagement Strategy page.
