Council is seeking feedback on the draft Sutherland Shire Community Strategic Plan. The Plan outlines the community’s aspirations and long-term vision for the Sutherland Shire and has been prepared by Council in collaboration with and on behalf of residents, businesses and all levels of government and local agencies, to help build a vibrant and sustainable future for the local community.
Sutherland Shire Mayor Carmelo Pesce said the community strategic planning process provides an opportunity for us all to reflect on where we are and where we want to be in 20 years.
“Achieving the objectives of the Plan is everyone’s responsibility. Each level of government has a key role to play. We must also build and sustain productive partnerships with local businesses, community organisations and many others. And it is you, our community, who can provide us with inspiration as we plan for and deliver the outcomes described in this plan.
“Inevitably change and challenges will confront us, but together we have the skills and knowledge to capitalise on and create new opportunities that will continue to enrich our lives.
“As Mayor of the Sutherland Shire I am proud of Council’s role in facilitating the development of this Plan on behalf of our community. At Council we look forward to playing our part in achieving our community’s vision for the future,” said the Mayor.
The Plan has been approved by Council and will be on public exhibition from Thursday 23 March until Thursday 20 April 2017. The Plan can be viewed at Council’s Administration Building, Sutherland, at any library branch within the Sutherland Shire and online.
Feedback on the draft Plan can be submitted via the Join the Conversation
