Have your say to shape the MidCoast's future

Published on 12 June 2024


If there is one important thing to do before 30 June, it’s to have your say on a plan that will shape the MidCoast region’s future and it will take less than 10 minutes.

“There’s still plenty of time and opportunity to have your say on the strategy that will set the direction for the MidCoast for the next 10 years,” said Council’s Mayor Claire Pontin.

“We encourage everyone to head online at https://www.midcoast.nsw.gov.au/CSP and complete a short survey to tell us what your priorities are for the region in future.”

With final pop-ups still to be held in Nabiac and Taree, and the last community workshop in Hawks Nest on Monday 17 June, you can also provide your feedback directly to Council staff.

The Nabiac pop-up will be outside the Greenhouse Café from 10am-2pm on Thursday 13 June.

The Taree pop-up at Envirofair has been rescheduled after the event was postponed. You will find the team on Victoria Street near Raw Sugar café on Wednesday 19 June from 9am-1pm.

This plan sets out the community’s long-term vision and the outcomes that matter to them. The plan is used by Council and community, State and Federal Government agencies to plan for our region’s future.

The community is asked to review the plan every four years to ensure when new Councillors come on board after a Local Government election, there is a clear direction from the community on what is important.

The community’s priorities are captured in the plan, and help Council prepare its annual plans for implementation. Other agencies will also use the plan to deliver outcomes in the areas of their responsibility.

“We know things change over time, so we want to know if there are emerging priorities for our region that need to be included in our plan,” said Mayor Pontin.

If you’re not online, and can’t make any events, you can call 0419 980 566 and leave a voicemail with your feedback.

Consultation will close on Sunday 30 June, so don’t delay.
