We are asking our residents and visitors to provide feedback
on the draft Ageing Population Plan 2018-2022 and to tell us if the Plan sets the right direction, goals and activities to make Lake Macquarie an even better place to live as we get older.
Any suggestions to improve the draft Plan and way we live in and enjoy Lake Macquarie for our next generation of over 55s and
beyond is welcome.
Why has Council developed an Ageing Population Plan?
With more than 30 per cent of our City’s population, more than 60,000 people, aged 55 and over – and this number is expected to grow –
Council is committed to engaging our local community to plan for services
and facilities to make Lake Mac an even better place to live as we get older.
We are updating our Ageing Population Strategy 2014-2017 to
plan for future service provisions and facility inclusions, upgrades and
developments to meet the needs of our increasing older population.
Ageing service providers, residents, family members and visitors of Lake
Macquarie City are welcome to provide feedback and contribute to this strategy.
It is open to anyone who is interested in planning for the
future of our ageing population.
We remember and respect the Ancestors who cared for and nurtured this Country. It is in their footsteps that we travel these lands and waters. Lake Macquarie City Council acknowledges the Awabakal people and Elders past, present and future.
