The Community Strategic Plan was originally introduced alongside the Integrated Planning and Report Framework in 2011.
The first version of 'Lane Cove 2025' was produced after an extensive two year community consultation process and came into effect in 2013. Council then undertook a review of the Plan in 2018 to develop Liveable Lane Cove: 2035, a refined version of the plan which would guide Council and its community towards 2035.
In 2022, another comprehensive review of the community strategic plan was undertaken. More than 700 local residents participated in various community consultation opportunities, helping refine a number of goals, objectives and strategies contained within Liveable Lane Cove 2035.
As part of this process, Council developed the Delivery Program and Operational Plan which outlines specific strategies, actions and new initiatives to be undertaken by Council over the next 2-3 years to achieve the goals and objectives set out in Liveable Lane Cove: 2035. The Budget to support these strategies, actions and new initiatives is also included in the Delivery Program and Operational Plan.
Liveable Lane Cove; 2035 is comprised of goals, objectives and strategies across six (6) planning themes
- Our Society
- Our Built Environment
- Our Natural Environment
- Our Culture
- Our Council and
- Our Economy
As this is a community plan there may be strategies which involve Council to lobby and enter into dialogue with other levels of government, private enterprise, community organisations, educational institutions, non-government, religious organisations and neighbouring councils.
