Planning for our community’s future

Blue Mountains Community Strategic Plan 2035 is our highest level long-term plan for our City.

It reflects our vision, aspirations and priorities for the future and outlines how we will work together to achieve these goals. It maps our journey of:

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

Every 4 years, following an ordinary election of Councillors, the Council must review the Community Strategic Plan (CSP). In preparation for the 2021 Council elections, we've started the process of reviewing and updating our CSP. Any changes to the CSP must be endorsed by the Council by 30 June 2025.


Community engagement

Council’s role is to guide the community and other key stakeholders through important conversations about what kind of City we want the Blue Mountains to be by 2050 and what the priorities and aspirations of our community are for the future.

We are committed to informed and transparent consultation and decision-making, and Council will use a range of engagement techniques to ensure the community and other stakeholders have an opportunity to have their say and provide meaningful input. The Community Engagement Strategy outlines how we will be consulting and engaging with our community and stakeholders.

Your input will help shape the future of the Blue Mountains to 2050.


Where is this project up to?

We're in the process of finalising the engagement reports from the first phase of engagement - the online survey and input from pop-up markets - regarding what you believe are the greatest achievements in the Blue Mountains, what you value most about our city, and what you believe is most important now for securing a successful tomorrow for everyone.
