What is Our Wollongong 2028 Community Strategic Plan?

Our Wollongong 2028 Community Strategic Plan is a 10 year plan that identifies our community’s vision for the future. It outlines the community’s priorities and aspirations, and how these can be achieved.

Our Wollongong 2028, is a ‘whole of community’ plan, in which all levels of government, business, educational institutions, community groups and individuals have an important role to play.
