    We are currently reviewing the City of Charles Sturt Community Plan 2013-2027 and invite you to submit feedback.

    The review provides the opportunity to adjust the plan to reflect changing priorities and needs, and ensure that we remain on track in delivering the quality of life and environment that Charles Sturt residents, businesses and visitors desire.

    To date, we have undertaken a review of the goals and objectives set in 2013 for each theme area. We have reviewed this content against the work we have completed over the last 3 years, and our current and planned projects and priorities. Council staff, Elected Members and our community E-panel have provided significant input into the review.

    As a result we have refined the 5 theme areas and their associated goals and objectives. A new vision and mission for the City of Charles Sturt as a local government organisation has also been developed.

    We are now seeking community feedback on the Draft Plan. Go here to get involved.
