Community Plan

Our long term plan is centred around a strong and sustainable future, supported by a progressive and supportive community. We are seeking to capitalise on our natural assets, as well as our tourism potential and create and environment encourages innovation and investment. We are able to draw on an active commercial sector, an engaged Chamber of Commerce, local government support, our volunteers and our strong community network. Our ‘big ideas’ set the scene for our longer term future. Some will take time, others provide opportunity for short term gains, renewed confidence and a chance at further development. They are set out in our 20 Year Plan. They involve infrastructure and industry development, expanding tourism opportunities, fostering creativity and artistic development as well as supporting our people, our volunteers and our emerging leaders.

Implementing our short term priorities is our first big challenge. And we’re full of optimism.

Community Plan - Final Draft

Narooma Recovery Lunch

We have a date! Sunday 21 March at Club Narooma.

Our community suffered immeasurably through the bushfires and then the pandemic. 2020 has been dire for many businesses on the South Coast. The aim of our Chamber is to bring people together to celebrate our resilience and give traumatised locals a sense of community.

The lunch will be available to 300 members of our community and food will be provided free thanks to a grant from the Mayor’s Disaster Relief Fund. Bookings will be essential.

The Chamber is taking the opportunity to re-launch our brand narooma… how life should be and update progress of outcomes of the Narooma Community Plan.
