Council Launches "Towards 2042" Consultation

Goulburn Mulwaree Council is excited to launch the Towards 2042 consultation, which will shape the future of

our community through a new Community Strategic Plan.

Council will guide the community through important discussions on the main ideas and priorities for our local

government area for the next term of Council and beyond, documenting these in a Community Strategic Plan.

“This is a great opportunity to share your ideas and influence our future. It’s your chance to envisage what

you, your friends, family and the wider community will need to grow and thrive towards 2042” said Mayor Bob


Towards 2042 community consultation will commence with a range of activities across the local government

area, including a survey which can be completed online at

“I encourage everyone to get involved June and July to have their say. We’ve got full details on how to get

involved on our website. There will be several opportunities for people to conveniently share their thoughts,

including surveys, a public meeting in Goulburn and drop-in sessions in Marulan and Tarago. There are also

creative ways for our younger residents to provide feedback including creative drawing kits.”

“We all have aspirations for a better future. Towards 2042 allows us to consider what we love about where we

live, what we’d like our future to look like, and how we will get there. Together, we can document a future

vision that respects our unique local area and lifestyle and that will influence the next elected Council in their

decision making.”

Consultation will also involve phone surveys during July, and three face to face engagement sessions:


  • Goulburn – Grace Millsom Centre, 5:30-8:30pm on Friday 9th July

  • Marulan – Marulan Hall, 8:30am – 11:30am on Saturday 10th July

  • Tarago – Tarago Hall,1:30pm – 4:30pm on Saturday 10th July

Towards 2042 asks the local community some key questions, focusing on where we are now, where we want

to be in ten years, how we will get there, and how we will know if we’ve been successful.

Council has a custodial role in initiating and preparing the Community Strategic Plan, but it is a community

plan. Many partners, such as state agencies and community groups, will be responsible for its implementation.

The Community Strategic Plan ensures the whole community is working towards a shared vision for a better
