Fairfield Council have released their Draft 2017/18-2020/21 Delivery Program and 2017-2018 Operational Plan for public exhibition and are asking the local community to take a look and have a say.
The Delivery Program outlines the proposed services and projects the council will seek to deliver over the next four years, which work towards achieving the community’s vision, priorities and goals as identified in the 2016-2026 Fairfield City Plan.
The 2017-2018 Operational Plan, which includes the 2017-2018 Pricing Policy, Fees and Charges, details all services and projects that are proposed to be delivered over the next financial year.
Fairfield is a diverse region with many different types of residents, businesses and community groups to consider. To make sure that the council moves towards a future that everyone in our local region can be happy and prosper in, it’s important that we all have our say on the issues that matter to us.
The reason that many local projects and programs get the go-ahead (or possibly get shelved) is because of community demand, so if people don’t speak up and let the council know what they want for the future then it might not eventuate.
If you’re interested in reading the draft documents you can do so at the council’s administration centre, libraries and leisure centres. The documents can also be viewed online at the Fairfield Council’s website – http://www.fairfieldcity.nsw.gov.au/.
All feedback received will be considered before the final documents are adopted by the council. Both will be on public exhibition until 5 May 2017.
Even if you don’t plan on providing your feedback, it is well worth reading the current council plans to find out what is planned for Fairfield in the future.
