Have you ever taken your toddler to a playgroup, met with a community group, joined a local yoga class, kicked a ball with your friends in the park, or borrowed a book from the library? Then you’ve probably used one of the great community spaces in Newcastle.
Community spaces include community centres, libraries, museums and galleries, and our parks, recreation facilities and gardens (and the services and programs delivered within them).
City of Newcastle (CN) knows how important this social infrastructure is to the community, so CN is working on a new strategy to make sure the community has access to these spaces now and into the future.
They are consulting with people across the city to help better understand what you value about community spaces (social infrastructure) and what you and your community needs for the next 20 years.
CN wants to hear from you about what you value, love and need in your community, so head to newcastle.nsw.gov.au/yoursay. It’s your opportunity to provide your input.
There are a number of ways to participate:
- Online Survey – This is a short survey telling CN what you value; what community spaces, recreational, and cultural activities you participate in; and what you think Newcastle needs for the future
- Interactive Map – Drop pins on their mapping tool and start sharing your ideas for better community places, spaces, programs and services, across our neighbourhoods.
Have your say until 5pm Monday 30 November 2020.
