Looking forward: Integrated plans
Our plans for a sustainable, successful and resilient Blue Mountains 2035.
Since 2000, the Council has worked with our community to set out the vision and aspirations for the City of Blue Mountains to achieve:
Our Community Strategic Plan, the highest level plan that Council prepares, presents the objectives and strategies we need to achieve in order to actualise our vision for a more sustainable and successful Blue Mountains.
Divided into six Key Directions, the Plan presents the vision, values, aims and aspirations for each, as well as the strategies to achieve the best possible value-for-money services for our community. Our Key Directions are the way in which we have categorised and communicate our service delivery to the community:
It began in 2000 with the Community Visioning Project – Blue Mountains Our Future. Between 2000 and 2003, over 6,000 people representative of the Blue Mountains community, including special needs groups, community organisations and government agencies, shaped the ‘community-owned and Council-led’ City Vision and Map for Action 2000–2025: Towards a More Sustainable Blue Mountains.
The Map for Action was further updated in 2007 and in 2010 to meet NSW Integrated Planning and Reporting requirements and our Community Strategic Plan is named Sustainable Blue Mountains 2035 to reflect community priorities and aspirations.
Get our 25-year City Vision
We have defined our united goal as Sustainable Blue Mountains ‘together’. Together, the community and the Council work to achieve our Community Vision. ‘Together’ is a statement of our united, inclusive and common goal for the City of Blue Mountains, for future generations. Together we can achieve a more sustainable and successful Blue Mountains – environmentally, socially and economically.
