Why has Council developed the draft Event and Festival Strategy and Action Plan 2019-2024?

The draft Strategy has been developed to support a vision for the region that enables experimentation and development of new markets, economic growth opportunities and promotion of our shared identity.

The draft Strategy provides the strategic framework for the next five years of event delivery through Council, ensuring decisions and future directions for the service are informed and endorsed.


How can I provide feedback on the draft Strategy?

The draft Strategy is open for comment until 1 June 2019. Feedback can be provided by completing the online survey, by emailing council@lakemac.nsw.gov.au or sending your written submission to: Lake Macquarie City Council, Box 1906, Hunter Region Mail Centre NSW 2310.

Why is community feedback important?

Community input into Council strategies and plans during public exhibition periods helps to ensure they meet the needs of all aspects of Lake Macquarie community and all views are considered.
