Community Strategic Plan (CSP)

The Community Strategic Plan (CSP) is an overarching 10 year plan that is prepared by Council and the community based on community priorities. It enables Council to coordinate its funding priorities, activities and services.

New South Wales Government legislation recognises that councils and communities don’t exist in isolation and that different planning documents must be integrated. The legislation guidelines indicate the CSP should be based on the social justice principles of equity, access, participation and rights. The CSP should also consider how social, economic, environmental and civic leadership issues can be addressed.

The CSP is a reference tool for Council, the community, government agencies and other stakeholders. It identifies the community’s aspirations for the future and outlines strategies to achieve them. The community owns this plan and it will serve as the primary resource for guiding future councillors on what the community wants. 

We produce an End of term report at the closing of each elected body's (your Mayor and Councillors) term of service, which is every four years. This reports shows Council's achievements in implementing the Community Strategic Plan. You can see what was achieved in recent years in the 2016 - 2021 End of Term report(PDF, 5MB).
