Delivering Newcastle 2040

City of Newcastle's (CN) Delivery Program and Operational Plan are known as Delivering Newcastle 2040. Delivering Newcastle 2040 is one of our most important documents as it demonstrates how we will achieve the community’s vision and priorities, including clear actions that guide the delivery of our services and projects.

Delivering Newcastle 2040 is prepared annually to provide the community with an outline of the commitments and projects we will undertake over the coming year to continue striving towards our goal of making Newcastle a liveable, sustainable, inclusive global city.

Key Highlights:

We will invest over $415 million into our city, delivering key services and infrastructure that will bring our community's vision to life. We provide over 60 services to our community and plan to deliver 282 projects and 170 actions across the city.

In 2024/25 we will continue to deliver initiatives from our informing and supporting strategies such as the Environment Strategy, Cycling and Parking Plan, Climate Action Plan, Social Strategy, and Sustainable Waste Strategy
