Community Strategic Plan (CSP) 2021-2025

Our CSP is perhaps the single most important document of all strategic planning documents produced by Council. It is developed after wide consultation and identifies the type of community we want to have in 10 years. It reflects our aspirations and sets the broad parameters that guide decision making. From Council’s perspective, all decisions should be consistent with the direction set out in the plan.

In essence it is a guiding document that shows the way for the planning documents that fall beneath it, such as the Delivery Program, Operational Plan and Workforce Management Strategy. The community strategic plan sets the 10-year vision, the delivery program sets out what is to be achieved over four years and the operational plan details projects that are to be completed each year, while the workforce management strategy identifies the workforce needs for those projects to be completed.

The delivery program, operational plan and workforce management strategy are designed to meet the objectives of the strategic plan and set achievable goals that go towards reaching the 10-year vision. Community strategic plans are reviewed every four years with the election of a new council. The four-year review means the document maintains its forward vision and allows for changes in community expectations or aspirations to be incorporated into future planning. It is a living document.

    Why are we here?

    • To hear your hopes and ideas for your community
    • To discuss what kind of community you want to create

    We want to get a sense of people’s aspirations and learn about the kind of community they want to create. We will be holding these conversations with people from across the community to talk about their aspirations, concerns and how we can move forward.  We can’t promise to create new projects based on this, but we do promise to give you back feedback and how we will use the information.

    What happens to this information:

    • Will form part of social planning and preparedness in across the Clarence Valley.
