Wollongbar 2038

Are you a resident, a business owner, a farmer or a frequent visitor with an interest in Wollongbar and what the future holds?  
How would you like your place to change and develop over the next 20 years?
What sorts of things would you like to see happen? 
Do you like Wollongbar as it is? Or do you think there is room for new plans?

During 2017 Council sought feedback from the Wollongbar community on what it was like to live in Wollongbar and the things the community valued about their environment.

We have used the feedback that you provided and prepared the draft Wollongbar Planning and Environmental Study and draft Strategic Plan 2018 – 2038.

The above documents were authorised for public exhibition by the Council at its Ordinary Meeting on 26 July 2018. The public exhibition period commences on 22 August 2018 and ends on 2 November 2018. The public exhibition period is an opportunity to let Council know what you think.

The exhibition documents may be accessed by clicking onto the images below. A copy of the report considered by the Council on 26 July 2018 may be accessed from the following link July 2018 Council Report.
