Developing our new Community Strategic Plan

The Community Strategic Plan will identify the main priorities and aspirations of Parramatta’s communities and set out strategies to address these over the next 20 years.

The planning and development of all other Council plans must reflect and support the implementations of the Community Strategic Plan, making it the highest level of strategic planning undertaken by a Council.

A draft Community Strategic Plan is being prepared for consideration of the new council in September 2017.

Council must adopt a new Community Strategic Plan by 30 June 2018.

What have we done so far?

In 2016, we asked you about your vision for Parramatta’s future and what your priorities were.

In December 2016, the Statement of Vision and Priorities was endorsed by Council, providing a starting point for Parramatta’s new Community Strategic Plan.

How can I get involved?

There will be plenty of opportunities for you to have your say, and your feedback will help draft Parramatta’s new Community Strategic Plan.
