Community Engagement - Have Your Say

Community engagement, have your say on upcoming projects

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT MEANS HAVING YOUR SAY

We believe it’s important that the community can see and have a direct impact on Council’s decisions that shape our City. We want to ensure our engagement identifies community needs and priorities, and aligns with our direction on projects and plans.

We’ve updated our Community Engagement Strategy which details how we will engage with you and how you can have a say on projects that matter to you.

Please take a few minutes to tell us what you think about our draft Community Engagement Strategy. Your comments will help us better understand how you prefer to be involved in decisions.

For more information and to complete a short survey, visit Council’s engagement portal.

The survey can be completed in Arabic, English, Hindi, Korean and Simplified Chinese.

Our consultation period closes at 5pm, Tuesday 19 November 2019.
 

HAVE YOUR SAY ON THE DRAFT LOCAL STRATEGIC PLANNING STATEMENT AND DRAFT LOCAL HOUSING STRATEGY

The City of Parramatta is growing rapidly, with the city’s population set to double in the next 20 years. To manage this growth, Council has developed a Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) which provides a vision and strategic direction to ensure the city is well-planned, liveable, productive and sustainable into the future.

Alongside the Draft LSPS, Council has developed a Draft Local Housing Strategy (LHS) to map out areas for housing growth and to ensure a range of housing styles will cater to the needs of Parramatta’s diverse community.

Have your say on Council's Local Strategic Planning Statement

The vision for the city is to build-on and celebrate its unique identity, to provide homes, jobs and transport to support a lifestyle that is inclusive, vibrant and welcoming – and for Council to make an ongoing contribution to local communities through improved facilities and services at the local and state levels.

HOW TO HAVE YOUR SAY

We are interested in your response to the Draft LSPS and Draft LHS. For more information and to have your say, please take our survey by visiting Council’s engagement portal.

HAVE YOUR SAY ON THE DRAFT COMMUNITY INFRASTRUCTURE STRATEGY

Community infrastructure is essential to our community’s well-being. Open spaces, libraries, and childcare centres underpin our lives and ensure everyone can access the essential services and recreational spaces needed to live well.

Have your say on Council's draft Community Infrastructure Strategy

The Draft Community Infrastructure Strategy (CIS) helps us to identify and plan for current and future infrastructure needs for the City of Parramatta.

Council plays an important role in providing adequate and high-quality facilities and spaces for the community. We recognise the importance of planning for growth and investing in the right infrastructure to meet the needs of our growing community.

We want to capitalise on the City of Parramatta’s growth to ensure a more resilient, productive, sustainable place to live.
