2024/25 Operational Plan

Lithgow City Council has commenced preparation for its 2024/25 Operational Plan, and we would like to know your ideas for projects and programs for the Lithgow LGA.

The Council is inviting residents and community groups to put forward proposals to be considered for inclusion in the draft Operational Plan.  This can include new infrastructure projects, community activities/ events, or ideas for improvements which will enhance the quality of life in our community.

What is the Operational Plan?

The annual Operational Plan sets out the projects and activities which Council commits to undertaking over the financial year and includes the budget, performance measures and timeframes to achieve this.

Prior to submitting your idea Council encourages you to:

  • Discuss your proposal with friends, family or community group/s.
  • View the 2023/24 Operational Plan to find out what projects and programs are being undertaken in the current financial year.

What happens with my submission?

Whilst we encourage everyone to make a submission, this is not a voting process, submissions are considered in accordance with budget availability, staff capacity and value to the community. Multiple submissions for a project or program will be considered as one submission.

All submissions will be considered, and you will be kept informed of the process and progress with your proposal as the 2024/25 Operational Plan is developed.

Proposals open Friday 22 December and will close on 15 February 2024.
