The Community Strategic Plan is a high level plan for our Shire developed in partnership with the community to outline the future for the local community. The plan sets out all the strategic priorities, outcomes and aspirations for the future of our local community, and is structured under eleven (11) key strategic directions (themes).
It identifies the main priorities and aspirations for the future of our local government area and addresses a broad range of issues and challenges that are relevant to the whole community and link to the agreed Community Vision “Nambucca Valley - Living at its best”
The Nambucca Valley will value and protect its natural environment, maintain its assets and infrastructure and develop opportunities for its people.
While Council is responsible for leading the development of the Community Strategic Plan, it has been done with the understanding that it will be delivered as a partnership between Council, and other stakeholders such as federal/state agencies, community groups and individuals.
The Strategy provides a guide for Council on the priorities for funding its community facilities such as libraries and community centres, and for its public open space such as parks and sportsgrounds. The Strategy identifies those facilities and public open spaces which should be upgraded and what is needed to be done.
The Strategy was produced following consultation with the community and various community groups, as well as Council staff. It was adopted by Council on 12 February 2015.

A total of 85 hectares of parks and reserves, playgrounds, sporting fields and foreshore areas are available for public use, and are maintained by Council on a regular basis.
