Tell us your vision for the future of the Lithgow region

By Lithgow City Council
Posted: 19 Nov 2021
Lithgow Council is inviting the community to share its vision for the future of the Lithgow area. This feedback will be used by the new Council after the December elections to update the Community Strategic Plan 2035 – Our Place, Our Future.

Since the Community Strategic Plan – Our Place…Our Future was last reviewed five years ago, a lot has changed in our region.  The impacts of climate change, bushfires, floods and COVID-19 have left deep imprints on how we live our lives. Sydney’s growth brings both pressures and opportunities for the city. We may have a long run still with some of our traditional industries but we need to diversify and attract more jobs and businesses.

“The Community Strategic Plan sets the long-term direction for the Lithgow Local Government Area” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Ray Thompson. “To start this process, we will conduct a telephone survey of 400 randomly selected residents from across the local government area, starting Monday 22 November.”

“An online version of the survey will also be made available once the telephone survey is complete.”

“This is a chance for everyone to be involved in shaping the future of the Lithgow region.  We want people to think about the community’s needs and speak up about it” Continued Mayor Thompson. Your opinion can shape customer service standards and help us to craft community health and wellbeing programs. You may have a view about how public infrastructure could be differently maintained.

The survey will enable Council to:

  • Identify what the community values most about living in the Lithgow area.
  • Identify what the community considers the highest priority issues will be in the Lithgow area over the next 10 years.

“The development of the Community Strategic Plan; ‘Our Place…Our Future’, requires long-term thinking – we can’t do everything at once, but this plan will give us a path to follow into the future” concluded Mayor Thompson..
