The document explains how with consistent, strategic decisions we can achieve our goals.

It also aligns to National, NSW and Georges River policy and planning directions while pushing the boundaries, allowing us to look beyond our current work plans and business. 2050 is Council’s promise to the city that we will be future focused, ambitious and committed to being a positive leader for change.
