Newcastle 2030 Community Strategic Plan

Young girl and boy at NAIDOC Family Fun Day stall and woman wearing a Better Together Tshirt.

The draft Newcastle 2030 Community Strategic Plan (CSP) represents the highest level of strategic planning undertaken by local government. It is a shared community vision developed to inform policies and actions over the next 10 years.

Extensive community engagement was undertaken from June to November 2017 to ensure community input informed the development of the draft plan. More than 2,700 people across the community have been involved to date.

The public exhibition period was between 3 May and 30 May 2018 providing another opportunity for you to have your say.

This is not the first version of Newcastle 2030. You may have seen the first version published in 2010; or the revised 2013 version. This is the draft 2018 version. This plan is updated every four years to ensure it continues to reflect the needs of our community.

Key revisions include:

  • Modification of the Vision Statement
  • Minor wording changes to the seven strategic directions
  • Updated objectives and strategies that better reflect the changing needs of our community and the role of Council and other stakeholders in implementation of the plan.

    We've learnt what people love most about Newcastle are its resilient people and friendly communities, its coastal location, great lifestyles, built environment and public spaces, and economy and businesses.

    We've also learnt that people perceive the city's biggest challenges to be our transport systems, built environment and public spaces, economy and jobs, governance and leadership and population changes.

    The top five Council services people would like improved are roads and parking, parks and playgrounds, cycle, shared pathways and footpaths, the environment, and ocean baths and beaches.

    Participants were generally satisfied with the 23 strategic directions in the current Community Strategic...
