Developing the Community Strategic Plan

 

The City of Parramatta’s Community Strategic Plan 2018-2038 Butbutt yura barra ngurra was endorsed by Council in June 2018 following extensive consultation.

The Community Strategic Plan is the highest-level plan that a Council prepares. Its purpose is to outline the community’s long-term vision and aspirations for the future and to plan strategies for achieving these goals.

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

 

What we have done

(Back to top)

In 2016, we consulted with over 9,000 community members about your vision and priorities for Parramatta’s future.

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

In addition, we consulted over 1,000 community members and stakeholders in July 2017 via an online survey and a community workshop. The Big Conversation exploring challenges, opportunities and key priorities for the City's future.

In November 2017, we consulted with over 1,400 community members via a series of pop-up kiosks and an online survey regarding the set of draft strategic objectives and strategies for the Community Strategic Plan. A workshop was also held with key stakeholders.

The information, ideas and feedback from this was used to develop the City of Parramatta’s Community Strategic Plan 2018-2038 Butbutt yura barra ngurra

The overall feedback was that the draft strategic objectives address the range of opportunities and challenges facing the City. Suggested changes were mainly to strengthen or clarify the language and eliminate jargon in the strategies.

We also held a workshop with key stakeholders who will help deliver the strategies.
