About the Community Strategic Plan

The Community Strategic Plan is a ten-year plan that reflects the visions, aspirations and needs of the community to guide Council's work and priorities. 

The Community Strategic Plan addresses four key questions for the community: 

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

This is an opportunity for the community to shape the future of Byron Shire and make it an even better place to live.

Everyone is encouraged to participate to ensure the plan represents you.

The feedback collected when developing the current plan resulted in a number of important programs and projects progressing around Byron Shire.

The Community Strategic Plan is being reviewed to ensure it is reflective of the community’s main priorities and aspirations for Byron Shire. 

All NSW Councils are required to review the Community Strategic Plan before 30 June in the year after a local government election. 

The Byron Shire Community Strategic Plan – 2032 was adopted by Council in June 2022 after extensive community engagement.

This Plan is being reviewed to make sure it is still fit for purpose. Any changes needed to refresh the Plan will be made to create the ‘Byron Shire Community Strategic Plan – 2035’.

A range of in person and online engagement activities are being planned to increase opportunities to participate and ensure Council is collecting feedback that is representative of the community.  

Demographic information is also being collected through the online survey to measure diversity of responses.
