Comment on our plans for the future

Help us make Wollongong an extraordinary place.

We're refreshing our city's long-term goals, and our more detailed plans for the next few years. And we want to make those plans with you.

You might think Council plans don't mean much to you. But these plans will help shape all our lives, every day: from your bins getting picked up to the library books you're reading, the playgrounds and sportsgrounds you visit, or the places you walk, ride your bike or drive.

Our plans also explain how we work with government and business partners, and advocate for things that benefit our city.

Listening to our community and updating our plans gives us the chance to respond to changing needs and circumstances. The effects of COVID-19, intense weather and climate change are just some of things we need to adapt and respond to. Our population, the way we live, and the mix of businesses in our city, are all changing too - and our plans need to adjust to keep in front of these changes.

We're also getting ready to be the host City for one of the world's biggest annual sporting events, and the largest event ever to come to Wollongong - the 2022 UCI Road World Championships in September.

Plans we're updating

Feedback on all of these plans is open until 31 May 2022.

What happens next?

After 31 May, we'll review everyone's feedback and consider if we need to make any changes to the draft plans.

Feedback and any proposed changes will be presented to Councillors, who will then finalise and adopt the plans at a Council meeting in late June. Once this happens, the plans become the guide for all the work Council does to serve our community.
