Social Planning

Mapping Mosman’s Community Services and Programs (January 2018)

A social planning analysis was undertaken in late 2017 and provides strategic advice based on demographic data, identification of existing local community services, programs and facilities, and results of the most recent consultation and planning undertaken by Council and State and Commonwealth and non-government agencies.

Mosman’s Social Directions: A Discussion Paper (August 2012)

This discussion paper provides an analysis of the major social directions emerging from demographic analysis, social policy trends, and consultation on community needs to inform the review of MOSPLAN, Council’s Community Strategic Plan

Health Needs Analysis (adopted 6 March 2012)

In response to identified health issues, Council undertook a health needs analysis for the community during 2011. The resulting report details relevant demographic and health data and provides an overview of the current provision of local health services and facilities and future directions in health services provision. It also identifies key health issues for Mosman residents. The analysis will assist Council in advocacy for retention and expansion of health services in the local area and assist in future planning.

Social Planning Overview

This Social Planning Overview provides a discussion of the social issues impacting on Mosman that informed the development of Council’s MOSPLAN including the Community Strategic Plan (2010-2020); and in particular, the Delivery Plan (2010-2014) and should be read in conjunction with them.

While Council is no longer required to prepare a separate Social Plan, social planning objectives are embedded in MOSPLAN.

Hard copies of MOSPLAN are available from Barry O’Keefe Library.
