Newcastle 2030

City of Newcastle listens to our community to understand what our priorities should be and where rates should be spent. Every four years a Community Strategic Plan (CSP) is developed based on the vision and direction our community would like to see in our future city. This long-term vision informs the projects and programs we deliver each year.

The current CSP, Newcastle 2030, is being closed out with a new CSP to be considered by the elected Council in early 2022. It's time to reflect on the changes in Newcastle over the past decade.

We take a lead role in the implementation of this Plan; however, responsibility for achieving our long-term goals rests with all levels of government, businesses, industry groups, community organisations and individuals.
