Community Safety

Bathurst Regional Council is partnering with the Bathurst Regional Community Safety Committee to develop the Bathurst Community Safety Plan 2019 – 2023. It will support the development of the Bathurst Region as a healthy, socially cohesive, and safe community.

The Bathurst Regional Community Safety Committee encompasses a skills-based group of professionals who represent a cross section of local organisations and services. The purpose of the Committee is to work in a collaborative and proactive manner to develop, enable and monitor the implementation of the actions identified in the Bathurst Community Safety Plan.

Bathurst Community Safety Plan 2019 – 2023 will be Bathurst’s third Community Safety Plan.  The draft Bathurst Community Safety Plan 2019 - 2023 is currently on display and Council is inviting community feedback to assist with the development of the final plan.  Submissions will be received up until Thursday 16 May 2019.  A copy of the draft Plan is available here.

Hard copies of the Plan are available for viewing at the Civic Centre, ground floor and first floor.

Previous Bathurst Community Safety Plans include:

Bathurst Community Safety Plan 2011 – 2014
Bathurst Community Safety Plan 2015 – 2019 

Both Plans saw the implementation of a number of successful crime prevention strategies, including Bathurst Says No to Domestic Violence and Don’t Invite Crime.

Wide reaching community consultation is currently being carried out to develop the Community Safety Plan 2019 – 2023. This will ensure the perceptions, ideas and concerns of the community are reflected in the Plan.
