Create Singleton 2032
Singleton Council is reviewing the Community Strategic Plan and we’re inviting all residents, businesses, organisations and community groups to be involved in Create Singleton 2032.
This is the best way for everyone in our community to be involved in setting the vision and direction for Singleton for the next 10 years.
And we’re making sure it’s easy and accessible for everyone. From 29 May to 30 September, there’s a whole program of events, workshops and children’s activities to capture your ideas about what you want for Singleton in 2032. You can write a submission, draw a picture, come along to a workshop, make a comment on social media, chat to us or stick a post-it note on a wall.
The CSP sets out our community's aspirations for our area. It provides the foundation for Council to work towards common goals, and sets the suite of measures and targets for Council to report against. These measures and targets create a shared purpose, meaning and accountability not only for Council, but for many people, groups and organisation to contribute to achieving our community's goals and priorities.
You're helping create Singleton 2023!
The year 2032 may seem a long time away, but Singleton Council is already planning to meet the future needs of our community.
We're reviewing our 10-year Community Strategic Plan and everyone is invited to get involved in setting the vision and direction for Singleton for the next decade.
In this short survey, we want to hear about your priorities for Singleton. Click here to take the survey.
As well as having a say into the future of our local government area, you will go into the draw to win one of two $250 Spend in Singleton gift cards. Terms and conditions apply.
