Report on Outcomes of the together Community Forum

about 2 years ago

The together Community Forum was held at the Blue Mountains Theatre and Community Hub in Springwood on Saturday 18 February 2017. It was independently facilitated by a Sydney-based company - People, Place and Partnerships - in association with Blue Mountains City Council.

The goal of the forum was to inform the update of the Blue Mountains Community Strategic Plan by obtaining input from all stakeholders across the City on their key values, aspirations and priorities regarding the future of the Local Government Area. Additionally, it provided an opportunity to assess progress made in the City since 2012, and to confirm the key findings from other community consultations conducted during 2015 and 2016.

The forum was well-attended by representatives of all sectors of the City of Blue Mountains - people who live, work, study and recreate in the Blue Mountains. A total of 120 people attended on the day, representing more than 60 different organisations. In addition to organisational representation, there were a number of residents randomly-selected by IRIS Research from each of the five Council Planning Areas.

The Together Community Forum Report contains full details on the forum outcomes.
