Woollahra 2030 – our community, our place, our plan

Woollahra 2030 is our Community Strategic Plan that has been developed by Council in consultation with the Woollahra community and was revised in accordance with the legislative requirements following the Local Government Elections held in September 2017.

It presents a long term vision for Woollahra and is structured around five (5) broad interrelated Themes, each of which is supported by a range of Goals and strategies.

The Plan is a strategic document that:

  • Presents a long term vision for our area.
  • Describes our community.
  • Identifies our current and future social, environmental, economic and civic leadership aspirations and challenges.
  • Presents goals and strategies for Council, the community and other levels of government to deliver in partnership.
  • Focuses on delivering a sustainable future.

Woollahra 2030 was adopted by Council, as its Community Strategic Plan on the 18 June 2018. Woollahra 2030 is informed through Council's ongoing community engagement on strategies, plans and policies.  The Community Strategic Plan is formally reviewed every four years inline with Council's election cycle and integrated planning and reporting legislative requirements.  Due to the current Council election cycle being shortened (September 2017 to September 2021), the current plans will be reviewed in 2021.

Woollahra 2030 is based on a comprehensive and inclusive community engagement process undertaken in 2009/10 which developed the strategic framework and ongoing community engagement which continues to inform Council's strategies, plans and policies.  Council aligns and integrates these plans with the Community Strategic Plan through updates to the Delivery Program and Operational Plan.

This further community engagement included a Community Capacity Survey (December 2017), community engagement as part of a review of our Social and Cultural Plan and a further Community Satisfaction Survey (2017/2018).  In response to the community survey, Council implemented an online community engagement website for consultation on the Community Strategic Plan, Delivery Program and Operational plan - https://yoursay.woollahra.nsw.gov.au .  These processes provided residents, workers, students and visitors to Woollahra with a voice to ‘Have your say’ on the future of Woollahra.
