Interagency Planning Workshop - April 2016

The Interagency Planning Workshop was held on 11th April 2016 at the Blue Mountains Theatre and Community Hub in Springwood. The key aims of the workshop were to:

  • Identify key achievements;
  • Obtain input into the update of the Community Strategic Plan;
  • Better understand each organisation's priority focus; and
  • Build relationships so we can work together better.

The workshop was well-attended, with 45 participants representing 24 different organisations. These were mostly State Government agencies, with additional representation from adjoining councils and some key non-government organisations.

Recurring themes that emerged from this workshop were around fostering partnerships and improving collaboration and connectivity at regional, city and local levels, and sharing a strategic vision by aligning planning objectives, strategies and performance measures.

Priority focus areas identified for the next four years include:
  • Improve transport infrastructure, network and services;
  • Strengthen disaster management preparedness and response;
  • Develop tertiary education;
  • Develop centres of excellence;
  • Increase employment opportunities; and
  • Improve alignment of planning and reporting between agencies.

More detail on the workshop outcomes can be found in the Interagency Planning Workshop Report.
