The Draft North Sydney Community Strategic Plan is now on public exhibition click here to read the Plan and scroll down for further information or to provide feedback.

Following each Local Government election, it's Council's responsibility to lead a review of the North Sydney Community Strategic Plan in consultation with the community. This plan outlines the community's vision for the future of the North Sydney local government area, including our shared priorities for the next 10 years. It is part of our statutory Integrated Planning & Reporting (IP&R) suite which will guide the incoming term of Council. The plan must be prepared and delivered as a partnership between Council and its community stakeholders, including state agencies, community groups and individuals.

Council needs to prepare and adopt its revised IP&R documents, including the Community Strategic Plan, by 30 June 2022. Your feedback will also be used to prepare the following Council documents:

  • 4-year Delivery Program including financial estimates (and the annual Operational Plan & Budget)
  • 10-year Resourcing Strategy consisting of three inter-related components - Long Term Financial Plan, Asset Management Strategy and Workforce Management Strategy

Stage 2 Engagement (Apr to Jun 2022)

Feedback collected via the below Stage 1 methods, together with the findings from the 2020 Customer Satisfaction Survey, the 2021 Liveability Census, and numerous recent consultations regarding a wide range of themes and services, including the North Sydney Local Strategic Planning Statement were used to inform the draft plan.

On 26 April 2022, the Council endorsed the draft plan for public exhibition for 42 days in accordance with the Community Engagement Strategy.

The draft North Sydney Community Strategic Plan - North Sydney Vision 2040:

  • includes a new community vision statement and guiding principles
  • consists of Outcomes and Strategies centered around five themes, known as Directions - 1. Our Living Environment, 2. Our Built Infrastructure, 3. Our Innovative City, 4. Our Social Vitality and 5. Our Civic Leadership
