Community Strategic Plan - Think 2050

Community Strategic Plan

Port Macquarie-Hastings Council launched the Think 2050 Community Strategic Plan (CSP) community engagement on 4 December 2019. 

It is now time to get our community involved to helping us come up our future vision with ideas, and actions to develop a new CSP and understand what the expectations of our changing community are. 

Think 2050 is centred on engaging with everyone in our community from those that lives, work, study, attend school or do business, as well as those that shops or visits our beautiful region. We all have an interest in our place and we all have the opportunity to Think 2050 and create our future together. 

Throughout the first half of 2020 we will be asking our community members all kinds of questions, about all kinds of things! Your ideas, suggestions and feedback will help us plan for the ongoing and future needs of everybody in our region.  

We have planned a huge variety of ways you can talk to us about your big ideas for 2050; follow our posts and participate in our online polls on Facebook and Instagram, answer our postcard ‘question of the week’, chat with us at our many ‘pop-up’ engagements around the region, register to attend the Think 2050 Symposium, or nominate to become a member of our Think 2050 roundtable sessions. Register below to hear about opportunities to get involved! 

What is a CSP?

Community The CSP is the community’s plan, prepared by Council on behalf of the entire community it represents. The plan reflects the aspirations and priorities of our community into the future. 

The plan sits at the top of Council’s strategic planning framework and provides long-term direction for the organisation to align its delivery of the community’s policies, programs and services. The CSP integrates with key Council plans and policies and acts as a guide for other stakeholders (organisations, government agencies, business and individuals) in planning and delivering services for our area. The plan also responds to state, metropolitan and regional plans and priorities relevant to the Port Macquarie-Hastings region. 

The development of our Community Strategic Plan relies on your input, ideas, suggestions and feedback, so what are you thinking for 2050?
