Creating a safer community

Consultation has concluded

Creating a safer community is a priority for Lake Macquarie City Council. Council will achieve this priority through adopting programs that have been shown to work, and delivering these in partnership with the community.

Thank you to everyone who completed the survey. The Crime Prevention Strategy is now available.

Throughout the consultative and community engagement phases undertaken to develop Council’s Community Strategic Plan 2013-2023, residents indicated the importance of crime prevention and community safety. As a result, the Community Strategic Plan clearly identifies a safe and healthy community as a priority for the community and as an area for action by Council (Section 4.2.2).

The Community Strategic Plan represents the partnership between Council and the people of Lake Macquarie to achieve the shared vision for the city. This plan outlines the main priorities of the community and sets out the long-term strategies developed to respond to these priorities.
