Cessnock 2023 Community Strategic Plan

Cessnock City Council undertook a comprehensive program of community consultation activities during 2010 to develop Cessnock’s original Community Strategic Plan. During 2013 the vision, outcomes and objectives from the original document were confirmed with the community and Cessnock 2023 was adopted. This document is the community’s plan for the future of the Cessnock local government area and it provides the strategic directions for our community over the next 10 years.

Cessnock 2023 was developed from information gathered during consultation and engagement activities across the Cessnock area. It was important that every member of the community had the opportunity to be involved and have their say about the future.

Cessnock 2023 identified five desired outcomes as the priorities for the local community:

  • a connected, safe and creative community
  • a sustainable and prosperous economy
  • a sustainable and healthy environment
  • accessible infrastructure, services and facilities
  • civic leadership and effective governance
