Have your say on our Community Strategic Plan

Project Overview


Many things have changed over the last five years and it's time to once again take stock of our community priorities. Council is reviewing its 10-year Community Strategic Plan for our future and would like to invite you to share your vision.

The Community Strategic Plan sets the overarching direction for all of Council's services and programs and will be used to drive the delivery program for this term of Council. The plan also allows Council to work towards achieving the long term vision of the Community.

We're listening and together we can ensure we continue working towards a shared long-term vision for Tenterfield Shire Council.

Help us set the future for Tenterfield

With Council elections in December 2021, it is time for us to review the vision for Tenterfield Shire Council. We want to hear from you, the community, to help Council review and update our set of plans for the future direction of Council and the community for the next ten (10) years. Council is required by legislation to have a suite of Integrated Planning & Reporting documents and we will be undertaking community engagement where we will meet with the community to ensure you have your say.

From December 2021 through to early February 2022 we want to hear about your priorities and aspirations for the Tenterfield region. We will be visiting and talking to the community in Tenterfield, Mingoola, Jennings, Urbenville, Liston, Legume, Drake and Torrington.

Followed the engagement we will be updating our Community Strategic Plan and placing it on public exhibition. With an updated Community Strategic plan we will establish a new draft Delivery Plan, draft Operational Plan and Budget for 2022/2023 that will also be placed on public exhibition and then presented to Council for adopting.

Submissions on the Community Strategic Plan should be forwarded to The General Manager, Tenterfield Shire Council, PO Box 214, Tenterfield NSW 2372.

On 1 October 2009, the NSW Government’s new framework for integrated planning and reporting for local councils came into effect.
Each council in NSW is required to prepare and review a number of plans, which provide details on how the council intends to deliver services and infrastructure in the short and long term, based on community priorities that have been identified through community consultation and engagement.
This web page has been designed to gather information from community members to review the existing Community Strategic Plan for Tenterfield Shire Council and revise our future 10 year vision where needed.
This vision will then enable Council to review its resources and strategies to ensure we deliver the vision.  Council developed the original plan locally with input from the community and other government agencies.
