What is the Community Strategic Plan?

The Community Strategic Plan (CSP) is an important strategic document that outlines our community's vision for the City. It identifies key priorities and outlines strategies to help us achieve them.

The CSP is developed in consultation with the community, it's the community’s plan for its future. It translates the community’s priorities and aspirations into key objectives. These objectives reflect our community’s vision for what and how Shellharbour City should look like in 10 years. The CSP is the highest level plan, setting Council’s direction for the next 10 years.

Why are we reviewing the CSP?

Every 4 years, following an ordinary election of Council, the Council must review the CSP. In preparation for the 2021 Council elections, we have started the review process.

Reviewing our CSP is important to track our progress against the plan, identify where we can improve and plan our priorities for the future.

The last time the CSP was reviewed was 2017. Council carried out extensive engagement with community members and stakeholders to determine the current CSP.

When the review is completed, we will have determined a refreshed Community Vision and objectives. Together, these will provide a road map of where we want to be and actions we can take to get there.

Community Vision

The CSP describes the community's vision and aspirations for the future. A vision statement is a short, but clear picture of what we want to become.

In early June over 150 community members participated in 'Imagine Shellharbour' workshops. Each workshop group co-created a vision statement for the City.

Each vision statement was open for voting at workshops and online. Voting has now closed. We are currently collating the online and paper votes, we will announce the winning vision shortly.

These vision statements have been developed by community members that participated in workshops. The most highly voted vision will be our next CSP Vision.

Your vision. Our future.
