Vision and values
Lake Macquarie is a city with a lake at its heart encircled by distinctive towns and villages. We balance our cherished environments with our need for great spaces to live and visit, smart transport options and a thriving economy; which adapt and strive to be fair for all.
- We value our unique landscape: a place where the natural environment (bushland, coast, lake and mountains) is protected and enhanced; where our existing urban centres are the focus of our growth, maintaining their unique characteristics.
- We value lifestyle and wellbeing: a place that encourages safe, active and social opportunities.
- We value mobility and accessibility: effective transport systems that provide choices to conveniently move people, goods and services.
- We value a diverse economy: which is resilient and adaptable to change, making the best use of the unique advantages of our location and lifestyle.
- We value connected communities: that support and care for all and provide a sense of belonging.
- We value creativity: working together with creative process and outcomes that bring together history, culture, knowledge and expertise that supports new technologies and ways of thinking.
- We value shared decision-making: Lake Macquarie communities continue shared responsibility for governance
Help us turn these values into long-term goals and actions for our City.
- Shaping our future
- Leading at all levels
- Working together
