Imagine shellharbour, community vision, 'naturally balanced, vibrant and connected community'.
How was our vision developed?
The community vision was developed in consultation with the community. In June 2021, over 150 community members participated in 'Imagine Shellharbour' workshops, with groups asked to co-create a vision statement for the City that provides a clear picture of what we want to become.
Each vision statement was then open for voting at workshops and online, the most highly voted vision was 'Naturally balanced, vibrant and connected community'.
The community's vision and aspirations for the future are reflected in our Community Strategic Plan (CSP).
Why was the Community Strategic Plan reviewed?
Every 4 years, following an ordinary election of Council, the Council must review the Community Strategic Plan (CSP). Reviewing our CSP is important to track our progress against the plan, identify where we can improve and plan our priorities for the future.
The last time the CSP was reviewed in 2022. As part of this review Council carried out extensive engagement with community members and stakeholders to develop our CSP.

Community Strategic Plan 2013 - 2023
The Community Strategic Plan (CSP) focuses on what the community have told us they want for Shellharbour City. It explains the community’s vision and objectives to help us make our city an even better place to live, work and play, and is our most important document. It belongs to the community and guides our decisions regarding services, projects and works programs. The CSP guides us through the challenges of addressing the diverse economic, environmental and social needs of our community.
Shellharbour City Council acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Dharawal Country and recognises their continued connection to the land. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and the contribution they make to the life of this City.
