On 10.10.2022 the Council adopted the Shoalhaven Community Wellbeing Stratey. This followed a lengthy community and stakeholder (external and internal) engagement process coordinated by John O'Callighan, Jordan Kelly and co. from JOC Consulting. It was my great pleasure to work with John, continuing our friendship commencing with the UNSW Planning program. Congratulations to Casey Holtom (council's social planner) on all of the hard work. I was fortunate to have worked on this project.
