The Community Safety Plan has been developed to coordinate community safety and crime prevention initiatives, and identify, prioritise and address issues at a local level.

The plan is a key action identified in the Council’s Community Health and Wellbeing Plan to promote and enhance safety in Clarence.

Mayor of Clarence, Alderman Doug Chipman said the plan was an important strategic document to guide Council to assess, make judgements and communicate its response in respect to safety in the community.

“Our goal is to ensure people are connected, safe and empowered in our community,” Mayor Chipman said.

“This plan identifies what Council can do to achieve this. The plan identifies action for Council to better respond and work with other organisations to improve personal safety, create and maintain safe streets and spaces and build resilient communities.”

Feedback on the Community Safety Plan is now being sought.

A copy of the plan is available from the Council’s website at or by contacting Suzanne Schulz on 6217 9599.

Submissions are to be made in writing to the General Manager by Friday 18 November 2016.
