Community Strategic Plan

Our Blacktown 2036  

We have developed Our Blacktown 2036 on behalf of the community of Blacktown City, as its long term Community Strategic Plan. This plan identifies the main priorities of our community and aspirations for the City over the next 2 decades and beyond. Its directions and objectives are comprehensive and are based on principles of sustainability and social equity.

Our Blacktown 2036 outlines our practical approach to achieving the community’s aspirations for the City. Alongside the strategic directions are a set of transformational projects that complete the vision for the City, ensuring that Our Blacktown 2036 is delivered.

The strategic directions and transformational projects have been designed to ensure that the City is in a position to make Our Blacktown 2036 a reality.  

To achieve the vision, the way the City functions is divided into 6 strategic directions, each reflecting a particular theme or aspect of the City and the life and wellbeing of the community.

These 6 strategic directions are interdependent, reflecting the requirements for a sustainable city. The identification of these strategic directions allows us to target key areas and develop their potential in Blacktown City now and into the future.

Strategic directions

  • a vibrant and inclusive community

  • a clean, sustainable and healthy environment

  • a smart and prosperous economy

  • a growing city supported by accessible infrastructure

  • a sporting and active city

  • a leading city.

The plan has a series of measures that will be used to monitor our progress towards achieving the vision.
