April Update

Thank you to all those who contributed to the review of our Community Strategic Plan, The Plan. We received 709 direct responses from our community, and your feedback has contributed to the priorities and goals Council has outlined for the future. We’re now ready to publicly exhibit this draft document and invite everyone to view and share their thoughts on what we’ve developed. Below is a snap shot of some of the outcomes we're setting out as part of The Plan for the next ten years:


You wanted to green our area with more trees and biodiversity. We included:


2.3 Greening, canopy cover and bushland and biodiversity preservation are maximised.
2.3.1 Increase and promote our tree canopy, shrubs and bushland coverage.
2.3.2 Protect and reinstate our biodiversity including endemic flora and fauna.



You also wanted greener, cleaner town centres, that are vibrant and activated and have good amenities. We included:


3.2 Our town centres are green, clean, vibrant and activated and have good amenities.
3.2.1 Provide regular maintenance and cleansing of town centres and public toilets.
3.2.2 Encourage and support targeted, place based events and activities to activate town centres.
3.2.3 Implement greening and planting strategies in town centres.

The Plan. The priorities – you choose.

Council has a Plan which identifies the community’s (your) main priorities and aspirations for the future – the Community Strategic Plan. The survey was part of a review of the Community Strategic Plan to help establish the priorities.

We have consulted with many residents and business owners over the last three years on a number of strategies and intend to use these results to review our current Community Strategic Plan, rather than starting from scratch.


You told us

Our consultation with the community has revealed that you value:

  1. Our diverse culture and strong social services.
  2. Our varied and productive economy.
  3. Our green open spaces, sporting facilities and our river.
  4. Facilities to meet the needs of a growing population.
  5. Our convenient location and transport.
  6. Efficient operating models that focus on service maintenance across the broad range of Council services.

We want to ensure that the Plan is still relevant and reflects your priorities and needs for the Georges River Local Government Area.


Your say

During August and early September we informed, consulted and involved you in this review. We provided you with relevant information and opportunities to be engaged. We did this through a range of methods from providing information on Council’s website, social media platforms and through online workshops and webinars.

It is a requirement of the Local Government Act that Community Strategic Plans are reviewed every four years. This Community Strategic Plan Review must be adopted by the new Georges River Council by 30 June 2022.


Our Engagement Schedule

The Plan is important and it was our preference to meet with you in person, but it's more important we keep you and your family safe.

Across late August and early September, we held a number of online engagement sessions. Thank you to everyone who tuned in. It was great to hear from you and we hope you took away something from our sessions.

If you didn't get an opportunity to meet with us live, our online sessions have been uploaded to this page and can be accessed via the Webinar widget on this page. We were able to have some insightful discussions with our guests, and some of the most popular topics were:



What's Next?

We are excited to learn what your priorities are and we are doing this by analysing the information received from the survey, webinars and other input. Results will be reported to Council in early 2022 and this page will also be updated with the results.
