Outlining a vision for the future

Warringah's Community Strategic Plan

The Community Strategic Plan 2023 sets out the long term aspirations of the Warringah community. It reflects where we want to be in ten years and is the key reference point for decision making during this period. The plan was prepared by Council on behalf of Warringah’s residents, business and land owners, Councillors and community groups, and with regard to State and Regional policy direction. The Plan has taken over 12 months to develop and involved a range of consultation with the Warringah community to capture the aspirations for the future.
