Have Your Say

We are updating Kiama’s Community Strategic Plan and we would love you to be involved.

Our Community Strategic Plan is a long-term plan that identifies the main priorities and aspirations of our community for the future. It is shaped by our community, for our community and we are encouraging you to join the conversation.

The Plan must be reviewed following each local government election - to ensure it remains relevant and captures the aspirations of the whole community.

The Kiama 2017- 2027 Community Strategic Plan reflects the community’s vision for Kiama and is our guide for action over the next 10 years.

Vision: Working together for a healthy, sustainable and caring community.

It tells us:

  • What we are striving to achieve
  • Strategies we are using to achieve it
  • Outcomes that will indicate we have reached our goals.

Council takes a lead role in the implementation of this Plan, however, responsibility for achieving our long-term goals also rests with all levels of government, businesses, industry groups, community organisations and individuals.


  • A Healthy, Safe and Inclusive Community
  • Well Planned and Managed Spaces, Places and Environment
  • A Diverse, Thriving Economy
  • Responsible Civic Leadership that is Transparent, Innovative and Accessible

We conducted an online survey that was open from December 2021 to March 2022 to help us review our vision and priorities. You can download the results of the CSP online survey from this page. 

We also had four Community Strategic Planning workshops for the community and hosted by our Councillors, which were held in different locations across the municipality. 

The next development will be our Draft Community Strategic Plan, which will be put on exhibition for community feedback soon.
