Our First Year

Sutherland Shire has a unique vibrancy. It makes the Shire a place where many people want to stay and never leave. Our role as Council is to use our community’s vision to guide our plans for the future. That’s why we created the four-year Delivery Program for 2017-2021, with a one-year Operational Plan and Budget for 2017/18 and have based it on the six key outcome areas you told us were most valuable and needed to maintain your quality of life.

Outcome 1 - A Community Informed And Engaged In Its Future

This has been a year of significant change within the organisation as we work towards better defining our service offering and aligning resources to meet the objectives of our Delivery Program 2017-2021. Such changes, whilst providing an important foundation do place pressure on the organisation and in some areas this has resulted in slower progress for some deliverables.
