Our Community Strategy Plan (CSP) is the overarching document that sets the direction for all of our subsequent plans, policies and strategies.
Our CSP, Imagine2050 describes our community's shared vision for the Port Macquarie Hastings future.
Our vision is to create the most liveable, sustainable and innovative place in Australia.
We are coordinating our business, activities, funding priorities, and services to achieve this vision by the year 2050. Under that vision, we have six key focus areas which support our progress. Those six themes are:
Sustainable - we have a healthy natural environment that is resilient to the impacts of natural hazards and environmental change.
Resilient - we are a welcoming, safe and inclusive community that nurtures healthy minds and bodies.
Connected - we live in accessible communities with a range of options for connecting with each other.
Liveable - we are a well-designed, diverse and vibrant region which offers a range of lifestyles and great places to live.
Thriving - we have a diverse and flourishing local economy which provides employment opportunities for people of all ages and abilities.
Authentic - we have leaders who represent the best interests of our community and are engaged, open, transparent and accountable.
While we take a lead role in the development and implementation of Imagine2050 - as it is a shared vision and plan between the community, there is a shared responsibility for achieving our long-term objectives. This rests with the collective commitment of all levels of government, businesses, industry groups, community organisations and individuals.
