Newcastle 2030 Community Strategic Plan

Newcastle 2030 Community Strategic Plan

As we work with State and Federal agencies to reduce the spread of Covid-19, the timeline for our Community Strategic Plan has been revised. We will continue to engage with you on our 2030 plan at a later date and thank you for your involvement in consultation activities this year.  Your valuable feedback will still inform our CSP.

The Newcastle 2030 Community Strategic Plan 2018-2028 is based on the aspirations, knowledge and values of our community. The Community Strategic Plan (CSP) is a shared community vision to inform actions over the next 10 years. It represents the highest level of strategic planning undertaken by local councils, and is a requirement under the Local Government Act 1993. Having developed the CSP in consultation with the community and analysis of key economic, environmental and societal trends almost 2-years ago, we're now checking back-in. 

Our vision

In 2030, Newcastle will be a smart, liveable and sustainable global city.

Strategic directions

The CSP was developed to have 7 strategic directions. Our strategic directions cover everything we want from our future Newcastle, from vibrant and active public spaces to a smart and innovative city with open and collaborative leadership.

Frequently asked questions

The community strategic plan represents the highest level of strategic planning undertaken by local councils.

The plan identifies the main priorities and aspirations of the community, providing a clear set of strategies to achieve Newcastle's vision for the future.

It's the story of our key  strengths, opportunities and challenges for the future --- as we work together to realise our vision of becoming a smart, liveable and sustainable city.

This plan is the guiding document for our four-year delivery plans and yearly operational plans. It tells us what services we should be providing to our community, what buildings and other infrastructure we will need to provide these services and what are the key things you want to see happen in our city over the next decade.

Newcastle City Council plays a leadership role in initiating and developing the community strategic plan on behalf of the community, however it is not wholly responsible for its implementation. Other partners such as state government agencies, non-government agencies, businesses and community groups also play a key role in delivering Newcastle's vision for the future.

The plan will be better if we make it together.

As per the legislative requirements of the guidelines NSW Government’s Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) framework, the City is expected to conduct major reviews of the Strategic Community Plan every four years and minor reviews in the second year of the Plan to assess the shifting community priorities, values, expectations and needs.
