Our Community Strategic Plan (CSP) is our community-led plan, which sets out what the City of Canada Bay will look in the future and guides all the work Council will do to get there. We're reviewing this plan and to do so, we're looking ahead to 2036.

Now's the time to have your say. Your input and ideas will be used to develop our new community-led plan, Our Future 2036.

What is the CSP?

The Community Strategic Plan (CSP) is our community-led plan and is the highest level of planning undertaken by a local council. It sets out the community's vision and goals for the next 10+ years. All other plans developed by Council reflect and support the implementation of the CSP.

Focus groups

We will be hosting focus groups in the second round of consultation from October to December to discuss survey findings and ask follow up questions.
