Welcome. This website gives you the information you need to know to participate easily and effectively in the public consultation for "The Clarence 2027” Community Strategic Plan (CSP).

We need your input to help guide the development of the CSP. The purpose of the Plan it to identify the community’s main priorities and aspirations for the future of the Clarence, and plan strategies to achieve them. These strategies will take into consideration the issues and pressures that may affect the community and the level of resources that will realistically be available.

It is not only Council who will deliver these strategies, but also other stakeholders such as the state government and various community groups.

The CSP must balance vision and practical reality.

The CSP answers the following questions:

  • Where are we now?
  • Where do we want to be in 10 years?
  • How will we get there?
  • How will we know when we’ve arrived?

The CSP will be based on five major themes to guide all planning:

  • Our Society
  • Our Environment
  • Our Economy
  • Our Infrastructure
  • Our Leadership

You may want to think of these broad themes when you answer the surveys.

What can you do now?

There a many ways to get involved, including community workshops, listening posts and focus groups to reach as many members of the community as we can to get their views.

There are also two surveys on this webpage (a mirror of our workshops and listening posts) that we strongly encourage you to take:

  • “Tell us your vision for the Clarence” – Four open ended questions; write as much as you would like to say.
  • “Help us prioritise our service levels” – nine quick poll questions on public asset condition levels (1 – 5 scale) and your priorities for these.

If you have questions please ask them here and however you do it - thanks for your participation.

    Help us prioritise our service levels

    Council, with a finite budget, manages a range of assets on behalf of the community, such as roads, community halls and parks.

    While it is not possible to have all assets in a group across the Clarence at the same condition (e.g. not all bridges can or need to be at the same level) we need your input to get an overall picture of what condition level the community thinks asset groups should be maintained at.

    There are only nine short questions in this survey:

    • Eight questions are on different assets and
    • the last question
