Better Together - Our 2030 Plan

We're updating our community strategic plan and we want you to get involved and have your say.

The plan is a road map for Newcastle in 2030 and we need to hear from all parts of our community to create a shared vision for our city.

Around 2500 people have already told us what they'd like to see in Newcastle in 2030. We've are crunching the data and have started to prepare a draft plan. We will be sharing the draft plan with you in 2018 to get more feedback and ideas.

Please email Amber at newcastle2030@ncc.nsw.gov.au if you'd like to know more about the Newcastle 2030 community strategic plan.

You can also subscribe to receive updates on the Newcastle 2030 plan via email.

    Since June 2017 we've heard from more than 2500 people about what they'd like to see in Newcastle's future. We've identified seven major themes and draft strategies for the next Newcastle 2030 Plan, based on what we have heard.

    907 people did our latest survey to tell us if we are on the right track. Thank you!
    The survey has now closed. We will be reporting back results in 2018.
