Community Safety

Consultation has concluded

We listened to what you had to say! Check out the draft Community Safety Plan on exhibition in September 2015.

Are you interested in making the Southern Highlands a safer place to live?

Have your say about community safety and crime prevention by completing our survey, identifying crime locations on a map or sharing a personal story.

"When people, organisations and government pull together across environmental, social, cultural and economic spheres, a community develops sustainable qualities such as being healthy and safe, inclusive and vibrant, enterprising and strategic." Community Strategic Plan: Wingecarribee 2031+

Whenever Council seeks input on an issue or proposal related to community development, it will be featured here on Your Say Wingecarribee. While we will continue to meet with people in person and provide printed materials at key locations, it is our aim to also provide community engagement opportunities online so it is available to as many people as possible (and at all hours) so you can have a say on the things that matter.

The Community Development team works across the Shire to create and support strong and resourceful communities through quality community strategic planning, research and policy development, community events, community grants and through the planning and provision of community infrastructure.

The team is made up of community development officers who each have a specialist focus on one or more of the following areas: young people, people with disability, older people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, women, arts and culture, families and children and community safety.

For further information about the team, please contact Nicole Williams, Community Development Coordinator on 4868 0866 or email nicole.williams@wsc.nsw.gov.au

    over 5 years ago

    Do you go about your daily activities feeling safe and without the fear of becoming a victim of crime?

    Please take a few minutes to tell us about your experience.

    Have you been the victim of a crime or do you just have a 'feeling' that something will happen if you are in a certain location or at a particular time? Community safety tackles issues that are both real and perceived and Crime Prevention describes any measure taken to prevent a crime before it occurs.

    Have you been the victim of a crime or do you just have a 'feeling' that something will happen if you are in a certain location or at a particular time? Community safety tackles issues that are both real and perceived and Crime Prevention describes any measure taken to prevent a crime before it occurs.

    Council plays a supportive role to the NSW Government in both community safety and crime prevention. We coordinate this work through the Wingecarribee Safety Committee and the Wingecarribee Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan. This plan is currently being updated and we would like to hear your opinion on community safety in the Wingecarribee and how Council can play a supporting role.

    So if you live, work or play in the Wingecarribee Shire, please take a few minutes to complete the survey by 31 March 2014.
