As a community, it is important for us to have a document that defines how we want to grow into the future. We also need to outline what we want and need as a community now. This document is called a Community Strategic Plan, an NSW Government requirement of all Councils. The Community Strategic Plan is Council’s highest level forward planning document that identifies the community’s priorities and guides the direction of the Bathurst region over the next 20+ years.

Guided by community input, the Community Strategic Plan provides a clear strategy for Council and its staff to deliver the infrastructure and services to ensure that the Bathurst region continues to grow and prosper into the future.

We are seeking your feedback on this, the long-term vision for the Bathurst region. Community feedback plays an essential part in developing a Community Strategic Plan which reflects the needs and priorities of Council and its community.

Community input into the development of the Cultural Vision 2036, Destination Management Plan, Economic Development Strategy, Heritage Plan 2017-21, Bathurst 2036 Housing Strategy and the Centennial Park Scoping Study, have all influenced the development of the community strategic plan so far.

The draft Community Strategic Plan, Bathurst 2040, is on public exhibition from now until 27 April 2018. The final Plan, along with a summary of submissions and amendments, will then be prepared for consideration by Council in May 2018.
