Detailed strategic plans guiding the future of our community
In June 2017, Council adopted a new set of strategic plans to guide Council's strategic direction and activities into the future.
The Imagine Lismore Community Strategic Plan 2017-2027 details the community’s 10-year aspirations for Lismore and sets the scene for what the community wishes for its future.
The four-year Delivery Program is Council’s action plan for achieving the community’s vision while the accompanying one-year Operational Plan is Council’s annual budget.
These three plans are the overarching documents that lead Council's work. The State Government requires all NSW councils to develop these strategic documents at the beginning of each new council term.
Watch our video by General Manager Gary Murphy on a few key highlights from the plans or read/download the plans in full below.
