Community Strategic Plan - The Clarence 2027

The Community Strategic Plan maps out your vision for the Clarence Valley for the next 10 years. It's our blueprint for the future and it needs your input.

Welcome! This website gives you the information you need to know to participate easily and effectively in the public consultation for the “Clarence 2027” Community Strategic Plan (CSP).

We need your input to help guide the development of the CSP.  The purpose of the Plan it to identify the community’s main priorities and aspirations for the future of the Clarence, and plan strategies to achieve them.  These strategies will take into consideration the issues and pressures that may affect the community and the level of resources that will realistically be available.
It is not only Council who will deliver these strategies, but also other stakeholders such as the state government and various community groups.
 
The CSP must balance vision and practical reality.

The CSP answers the following questions:

  • Where are we now?
  • Where do we want to be in 10 years?
  • How will we get there?
  • How will we know when we’ve arrived?

The CSP will be based on five major themes to guide all planning:

  • Our Society
  • Our Environment
  • Our Economy
  • Our Infrastructure
  • Our Civic Leadership

This is your plan so take the time to tell us what you would like our community to look like 10 years from now.
