Hornsby Shire Council has created the Community Strategic Plan 2018-2028. This is more than a plan, it is a vision of where our community is headed.

Residents love living in Hornsby because of the natural environment. So a major focus of the plan is finding the right balance between creating a modern community where there are opportunities for everybody, without sacrificing what makes our community so special.

The Community Strategic Plan sets out a range of targets for Council aimed at achieving four key goals: liveable, sustainable, productive and collaborative.

“At the heart of every major decision of Council will be a simple question – does this policy make our Shire more liveable, sustainable, productive or collaborative?” Mayor Ruddock said.

“Ideally, we will be aiming to make decisions that achieve all four of those benchmarks.”
