Community & Cultural Facilities Strategic Plan

The Community & Cultural Facilities Strategic Plan (Plan) provides direction for the future planning, provision and management of Hornsby Shire Council’s (Council) community and cultural facilities over the next 10 years. It is a revision of Council’s previous Community and Cultural Facilities Strategic Plan 2015 (the preceding Plan).

This Plan is focused on facilities which are owned by Council and considers the following facility types:

  • Libraries
  • Community and cultural centres
  • Scout and guide halls
  • Historical society buildings
  • Other Council-owned facilities providing social and/or cultural services.

In the preceding Plan, six districts were nominated. This Plan has consolidated the number of districts to four with links to each district analysis and key strategies available below:
