Community Strategic Plan

This Plan outlines the community’s aspirations and long-term vision for the Sutherland Shire and has been prepared by Council in collaboration with, and on behalf of residents, businesses, all levels of government and local agencies, to help build a vibrant and sustainable future for the local community.

Sutherland Shire Council has long recognised the importance of a strong local economy and is committed to developing a prosperous community for all.
We want Sutherland Shire to be a community in which each and every one of us can be well educated, where people can work closer to home, and where our local businesses prosper and provide more employment. This will provide the foundation for how we live and enjoy life.
