Integrated Planning and Reporting

Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) legislation was introduced by the NSW State Government in 2013 and sets requirements for all Councils to lead the development of long term plans for their city, detailing community aspirations and strategic directions.

City of Newcastle has embraced this opportunity to engage with our community to ensure our planning and reporting is informed, relevant and responsive to community needs.

Our Community Engagement Strategy provides a framework for how the community can participate in our planning and decision-making'.
