Project details


Council’s draft Statement of Vision and Priorities will guide Council until a single Community Strategic Plan is developed for the inner west. The draft Statement of Vision and Priorities was created over a three month period which included extensive community and staff input.

The draft Statement was endorsed for review by the community at a Council meeting on 6 December 2016.

What’s in the Statement?

The Vision

‘We are Inner West, Land of the Gadigal and Wangal peoples, whose rich cultures, heritage and history we acknowledge and respect. Together we are an inclusive, passionate, creative, vibrant community united in our desire to build a great future for all who live and do business here’

What will happen next?

The feedback received will be used to develop a final Statement of Vision and Priorities which will be considered by Council at its meeting on 28 February 2017.

The final vision and priorities in the Statement will then be used in the development of the Community Strategic Plan (CSP).

Work on the CSP will commence in early 2017, and the community will be invited to contribute. The CSP will not be finalised until after Council elections in September 2017.
