Community Strategic Plan

The Community Strategic Plan (CSP) is a shared vision – a roadmap of where our people want Hornsby Shire to be in ten years. The CSP identifies our community’s main priorities and aspirations for the future and sets the broad strategic direction for Council’s operations.

While Hornsby Shire Council takes a lead role in implementation of the Plan, responsibility for achieving the long-term goals rests with all levels of government, businesses, industry groups, community organisations and the community itself.

Hornsby Shire Council's highest level plan, a 10-year vision that was developed collaboratively with the community.

Your vision | Your future 2032

Hornsby Shire’s Your vision | Your future 2032 was endorsed by Council on 8 June 2022.

What does the Community Strategic Plan do?

It identifies the main priorities and aspirations for the future of Hornsby Shire, acting as Council's long-term plan to deliver the best possible services. It also sets the strategic direction for where the people of Hornsby Shire want to be in 2032.

The Delivery Program 2022-26 including the Operational Plan supports Your vision | Your future 2032 and defines the services Council will undertake in the short term towards achieving the long term community priorities.

How will we measure progress?

Your vision | Your future 2032 includes Community Indicators which over the longer term will measure progress towards achieving our community priorities. Councils are required to track and report on progress in implementing the Community Strategic Plan using these Community Indicators. The results will inform a State of the Hornsby Shire Report to be produced and presented to the new Council after the next election showing progress towards the overall Vision identified in Your vision | Your future 2032 and will also inform the review and development of the next Community Strategic Plan.

The Community Indicators are included in each of the four Themes in Your vision | Your future 2032 and are also available here Measuring Progress (PDF 188kb) in more detail to provide information on the data source and frequency of reporting.
