'More than a mining town': Singleton's tourism brand outlined in recently adopted 10-year Community Strategic Plan

SINGLETON will look to throw off its "mining town stigma" in favour of cycleways and cultural events, under the council's new 10-year strategic plan. Mayor Sue Moore said while regional economic concerns can't be ignored, "overwhelming" feedback from the community focused on "lifestyle and livability".

"Council staff have been out and actively engaging for months and it thoroughly came back that cycleways, footpaths and events are a top priority," Cr Moore said.

"Even through we have well over fifty per cent of our population employed in an industry related to mining, we don't believe in the stigma of being a mining town."

On Tuesday night, Singleton council adopted their Community Strategic Plan 2022-32 (CSP). The plan outlines council's objectives for the next 10 years, guided by community feedback.
