Wollongong 2022 is a long term Community Strategic Plan for the City. The Plan plays a vital role in the future of Wollongong, and provides direction for the delivery of key projects and services, which will help meet the needs of the community.
The NSW Government’s Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework (IP&R) requires that all Council’s develop long, medium and short term plans which detail how the community’s vision, aspirations and priorities will be delivered via projects and services. Wollongong City Council transitioned to IP&R in June 2012. This followed extensive community engagement in 2011 and 2012 to develop a long term vision for Wollongong. This vision and six community goals are outlined in the Wollongong 2022: Community Strategic Plan. The Community Strategic Plan is supported by Council’s Resourcing Strategy, Delivery Program and Annual Plan including the Budget, Capital Budget and Revenue Policy, Fees and Charges.
From the mountains to the sea, we value and protect our natural environment and we will be leaders in building an educated, creative and connected community.
To achieve our vision, six community goals were created which will guide Council, business and the community for the next ten years.
- We value and protect our environment
- We have an innovative and sustainable economy
- Wollongong is a creative, vibrant city
- We are a connected and engaged community
- We are a healthy community in a liveable city
- We have sustainable, affordable and accessible transport
The Resourcing Strategy 2012-2022 highlighted that Council faced significant challenges and for this reason, the ‘Securing our Future’ financial sustainability review commenced in 2013. As a part of this review Council engaged the community in conversations about long-term financial sustainability. This resulted in the development of the Revised Resourcing Strategy 2012-17 (adopted 17 February 2014) and Revised Delivery Program 2012-17 (adopted 17 February 2014). Further information on this review can be found on Council website.
