Community Strategic Plan

The City of Parramatta endorsed the Community Strategic Plan 2018–2038 Butbutt yura barra ngurra in June 2018. Developed on behalf of our community and based on your feedback, the plan identifies your priorities and aspirations for the next 20 years, and provides a roadmap for how we will get there.

Butbutt yura barra ngurra means ‘the heart of the people of eel country’ in the Dharug language. This title acknowledges Parramatta’s ongoing connection to the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land and waters of Parramatta, and recognises that our entire community is the living, beating heart of the City of Parramatta.

Our Community Strategic Plan covers the period 2018–2038.

It is now time to check-in with you and make sure that the plan still reflects your priorities and aspirations for the future of our City. Have your say on Participate Parramatta.

The past three 3 years have been a period of growth and widespread change, both for the City and on a global scale. The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly changed the way we work, connect with each other, and move around the City.

We recently consulted with the community to make sure that the Community Strategic Plan still reflects your long term aspirations for our City and to understand your key delivery priorities for the next four (4) years.
