CSP public workshops and village stall dates
October 29, 2012
Shoalhaven City Council will be hosting a series of public workshops and village stalls to allow local residents to have their say on the review of the Community Strategic Plan (CSP).
Given the substantial community input and Council direction reflected in the 2010 CSP Council will focus on a review, rather than a ‘blank canvas’ approach to the 2013-2023 CSP.
The public workshops and village stalls have been created to allow local residents the opportunity to ask questions about the CSP review process and make comments on the future direction of the City.
The workshops include -
• St Georges Basin Country Club - Wednesday 21 November
• Nowra School of Arts - Thursday 29 November
• Ulladulla Ex-Serviceman’s Club - Thursday 6 December
Each workshop will take place from 5.30pm-7pm.
The Village stalls include -
• Nowra Twilight Markets (Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre Forecourt)- Friday 16 November (4pm-8pm)
• Milton (outside the IGA) -Thursday 6 December (1pm-3pm)
• Ulladulla (foreshore viewing platform) - Thursday 6 December (3.30pm-4.30pm)
• Berry (outside the Berry Post Office) - Thursday 13 December (1pm-3pm)
• Bendalong (outside Bendalong Shop) -Friday 14 December (1pm-3pm)
• Bawley Point (outside the IGA) - Thursday 20 December (1pm-3pm)
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Joanna Gash said the upcoming public workshops and village stalls would allow interested stakeholders to have their say as part of the CSP review.
“Council is inviting the entire community to become involved in the engagement process by having their say on a better Plan for the future direction of the City,” said Clr Gash.
“The initial workshops and village stalls will provide local residents the opportunity to ask questions of staff members and provide issues affecting the Shoalhaven over the next 10 years”.
“We really want as many local residents as possible to make comment during the engagement phases.”
Council will be providing a number of different opportunities for local residents, business and property owners to make comment throughout the exhibition period.
Other engagement activities will include a specially designed CSP website, CSP displays at various information points, reply paid postcards as well as the ongoing the use of social media.
