Community Engagement Report Published – July 2019

In November 2018, Council asked for feedback on a discussion paper to help inform the preparation of an updated Growth Management Strategy. This paper explored where and how growth could occur and which areas and values should be protected. The paper provided information on Shoalhaven’s changing community and the opportunities and challenges the City is likely to experience over the next 20 years.

The project team spoke with many people between November 2018 and January 2019 and collected 166 submissions. The community provided a large amount of feedback on a broad range of matters. This feedback has been summarised and is available via this link – GMS Community Engagement Report

Council will use this report and the detailed feedback in the submissions as a reference, considering this information as the project team update the Growth Management Strategy and develop the broader Local Strategic Planning Statement.
